I recommend that anyone with the means and opportunity experience this gem at least once in their lifetime. Please be sure to purchase a package that includes meals, as the afternoon tea, cocktails, extravagant dinner, and breakfast are all part of the essential itinerary to fully understand what this place is all about. No stone is left unturned with regard... More

This is an Inn like no other. The rooms at the Inn at Little Washington are all so beautifully appointed with fabrics and art, furnishings and little personal touches that transport you to a type of "fairy land." A single night's stay is all you need to feel like royalty. It transports you to an entirely different world - you're... More

We stayed for one Saturday evening. Dinner was by far the best and most expensive meal we have ever eaten. Afternoon tea and breakfast were also wonderful. The main restaurant is cozy and beautiful. Service is superb and not stuffy. The only minor negative was the room. It was a cold weekend and the area of the room with the... More

This place is simply amazing. We stayed for one night and had dinner. There is no point repeating praises that many others have written on this site. This is a whimsical place with extraordinary service. The food was extraordinary. The bedroom was outstanding. It is very expensive, but I do believe the experience is worth it. We had only one...

You may not need a golden ticket to gain access, but a stay here can cost a small fortune in gold bullion. The eccentricity of the hotel and tasty morsels that are served here evoke a sense of wonder. The staff seems to know you from the second you pull in and every step of the way, even though like...

Our stay was only one night, mid-week, in a cold, "down" time of the year but everything was superb. The porches are a perfect spot for watching the sunset or just relaxing. Our room and bath decor were beautiful and extremely comfortable as were the warm, comfortable, common-area sitting rooms. The bedroom fireplace was especially wonderful on the cold winter... More

Four of us spent a fabulous night at the Inn to celebrate my wife's birthday during the dreary period between Christmas and New Year.

I loved staying here! The rooms are beautifully decorated and the food was just amazing. They have a cozy lobby and you will be welcomed with a tasty drink. It was a bit of a drive but totally worth experiencing! The price is... Well you get your money's worth!
