I called in advance to ensure that a bottle of champagne was left in our room prior to our arrival to celebrate our anniversary. I called several times and was transferred to the Tavern, a restaurant on site. No employees were in the Tavern and thus I was left on hold for ages. I called back and the lady at... More

My Hubby and I had a wonderful time. We stayed 3 nights. We booked the escape to the Essex package. It was so worth it. Night #1 we did a culinary class. It was FANTASTIC. Probably the highlight of our trip. We learned a lot, had a great time, and the food was delicious. Day # 2 we used the... More

Besides being in a very beautiful location for a work conference, the bed had to be the best part. Comfortable, comforting, and just all around awesome, between the pillows and blankets, I felt very comfy. Some of the reviews mention things being 'dated' but really, for the price you're paying with the lovely grounds and different activities, I was very... More

Two friends and I stayed here 4 nights. I shared a double room with one of them and the other had her own room. We were both in the main part of the inn which was convenient. PROS: The grounds are lovely. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. The bed was quite comfortable, good pillow choices, and we enjoyed... More

Overall, I had a very satisfactory stay here for 3 nights. We had a nice sized corner room in a building next to the mansion. The room was a good size for 2 adult and 2 kids. It was an okay room for a hotel, but nothing resort like about it. The bathroom was updated and clean. I was happy... More

For two nights we were guests on the first floor in The Manor facing the trees Labor Day weekend. Our room was beautiful, clean, up-to-date, spacious and quiet with a very comfortable bed! Not much more one can ask for in a room. We concluded that the second night of our stay was the quietest night we had ever experienced... More

I was really looking forward to staying here on our way up to Montreal. The grounds are lovely but our room in the Mansion was kind of shabby and the bathroom was dated. The a/c is an old system and was pretty loud so we were lucky it was a cool night and we could keep the windows open. The... More

We looked forward to staying here and we're not disappointed as regards indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and food. However,, when a facility bills itself as spa, culinary center, and all-around speciality resort, it cannot be great on the bells and whistles, but poor on room quality. There's a real disconnect here and the lack of investment in the... More

Dear kathleen20, Thank you for enjoying what the resort has to offer. It is unfortunate that we missed opportunities to exceed your expectations with regard to the quality of the room features and maintenance. It is our intention that everything in each room is in working order prior to the arrival of a guest. Should an item be missed or... More

We'd heard great things and always wanted to stay here. And it was great! The bed, a King was amazing soft yet supportive I slept like a baby. The Spa services are expensive but the Spa facilities luxurious. The towels and the robes were the best quality. We ate lunch in the Tavern and had a delicious cheeseburger and fantastic... More
