The Lodge and room were nice, but the Internet only works on the lounge, not in your room. In this day and age that is a deficiency. They also staff the desk during limited periods. I left my room a little after 8:00 each morning and never saw anyone at the front desk. The location is very nice, in the... More

First of all, I want to thank you for your feedback. As owners, it is of utmost important to get feedback in order to make Maxwelton Braes Lodge the great historic lodge getaway it is meant to be. By the time we realized last season, that we were understaffed in the housekeeping department, we were unable to get additional help... More

We too stayed at Maxwelton Braes over the July 4th weekend and we had plenty of toiletries and were told where to find more if needed via advanced email and a well written sign at the front desk (in the event that there was no one there to assist). Our room was very clean and there were no bugs of... More

I live in town and I love to use this hotel as a mini-getaway and as a place to lodge family and friends when they visit. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and they are really willing to help out guests whenever they can. Even though the desk isn't staffed all the time, someone is usually available by phone.... More

My husband and I booked 4 nights here, last Wednesday through to Sunday. When I made the booking on line I wasn't able to book one of the hotel rooms for all 4 of the nights, but was able to book one of the "cottages." The prices for the hotel rooms and the cottages were the same, so I presumed... More

My husband and I stayed at Maxwelton Braes the week before July 4th. We were pleased that the front staff was friendly, and we liked that the hotel was very quiet with a gorgeous view. With that said, I can say that due to these many small inconveniences, we rate this lodge as mediocre: 1. There were no toiletries in... More

First of all, I want to apologize to you for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. The housekeeping staff should have had a strictly enforced checklist so that an oversight, such as forgetting the standard toiletries that we provide, would never happen. We had switched to a very nice spa product line of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, make-up wipes, body... More

I wish I could say better things about this place, as it is just starting up, but we found it to be terribly run and were quite disappointed. First, the good things: It is quiet, in a good location, and the rooms are comfortable if a bit dated. Now onto the bad. First, they are only staffed from about 10am... More
