Wife and I were getting away for our 8th anniversary.
Nice old building, well kept. Valet service is a nice touch.
Rooms were quite luxurious, but thats the standard fare for this price range. Grounds were in very good form and dining for breakfast / lunch under the tree in the garden was nice.
That said, its been a while since 2 sandwiches and 4 glasses of wine set me back $120.
Bermuda or Manhattan, yes but in Cambridge?
Found the meals to OK. not amazing.
First night, my wife had a filet mignon, ordered it medium.
two pieces, one was rare at best, the other was mushy, like it had been in a slow cooker for the day.
I nearly gagged.
I had Lamb, same results.
Next night, similar results.
The desserts were superb, wife wanted to be alone with her chocolate. Having said that, the dessert can't make up for a bad meal. I can get great desserts at any steakhouse.
Katie the Sommolier was very helpful, we sat in on her wine tasting on Saturday. On Sunday I told her my budget of $70 and we told her what we were eating, and she chose the bottle. Thats a nice service.
Found the clientèle to be a little snooty, more than what we're used to.
The spa was not the best we've seen, smaller, cramped, White Oaks is much nicer, in St Catharine's.
The maid service was shoddy. After 2 days, we had 8 dirty wine glasses, 2 empty snifters,and 3 empty wine bottles lined up on the mantle. We had turn down service but the empty wine glasses and empty water bottles on the night stands were ignored, as was an empty wine bottle in the middle of the seating area floor. When I asked for 4 wine glasses, I felt uncomfortable because I didn't tip, but I shouldn't have to, the maid should have replenished the room.
Another thing we missed was a mini bar, to put beer or white wine in.
After spa, wine, taxes and tip, 2 nights was about $2000. We both agreed we had a better time, for far less $, at Couples Resort /Bear Trail. We are not cheap by any means, but we value "value". We have certain expectations for the $ spent, and for the most part, they were not met.
