My wife and I were guests at the Waring House this past Friday and Saturday (Aug 24/25). This was our first visit to the Waring House. We were very pleased when we arrived and were happy with the room assignment (111) facing the tranquil farmland. This is exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately our Saturday evening turned out to be one of the worst nights ever!
I believe there was a large wedding party and unfortunately many of the guests were in the rooms all around ours. We quickly learned that the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything and anything going on. The real noise did not begin until about 12:00 and continued well past 3:00am.
We called '0' (as suggested in the Inn's services book) numerous times for assistance with this problem throughout the evening (trying to avoid a direct confrontation with the noisy guests), but there was no reply. I would have thought there would be some kind of security person on hand especially on an evening when you may have many potentially intoxicated guests.
I finally did go out into the hall a couple of times and asked these guests to please keep it down, but this was futile.
My wife and I are regulars at other inns and hotels and we have been at those hotels during numerous wedding weekends and I can tell you we never experienced anything like this.
The Waring House -in many ways- seems like a 4-star inn, but it really falls short in several areas. We were also disappointed with the shower. The temperature was changing from warm to cold-to-scalding hot. I think this is easily remedied with a temperature regulator (found in any Motel 6). Also cutting corners using single-ply toilet tissue is not in line with some of the nicer amenities that they do provide.
Most disappointing though is the lack of response from management (the innkeepers).
I had complained the morning of checkout as well as wrote an email with the above details. I received the same response as I did during that horrible evening. None.
(Of course we can expect to see a response in this forum ;-)
