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. In most hotels and restaurants service tends to fall off during this quiet time - not so at Little Washington. The Inn is the embodiment of old world charm - as indeed is the whole of... More

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!

While this is off the beaten path, this is a very intimate and attentive experience. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. Then there is the food. Patrick is an artist! The menu is creative and imaginative. The service is superior and the portions are perfect. This was a 3 hour dining experience and while we chose a spectacular wine... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner and had a wonderful, albeit very expensive (for 2 it was just under $800 with tip), experience. We had the 845 sitting which meant we were walking out about midnight. They brought us to the living room where we each had a specialty cocktail. Then we were brought to our seats about 30... More

Just visited the Inn for our 3rd Special Occasion. Patrick opened another building (April '14) with rooms called The Parsonage, just across the street. Besides accommodation there is a fireplace room to enjoy company and afternoon tea. It also looks as if there is porch seats and garden when the weather is nice. Our room #22 was generous in size....

This review is only for the restaurant; we chose not to stay at the hotel because the price was just extraordinary and there were other excellent options nearby.

I wrote a separate review of our outstanding dinner at the end: one of the most memorable meals of our lives, and a great way to celebrate my partner's birthday.
