“Beautiful hotel with outstanding service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large any clean. Their were beautiful winding staircases and lots of sitting areas to take a break outside of the room. They served fresh Danishes and breads with coffee in the lobby for breakfast. We will definitely be staying there again

Very nicely decorated rooms that have a colonial feel. Comfortable beds with comforters and nice homey touches throughout the room. The pool is set beautifully in the woods, clean, and relaxing. However they over did it with the scent sticks in the reception area.

Well I was on business in Canton for a week and the Avon Old Farms Hotel is fabulous. It has an old world charm in the staff and the building and the lobby. It is oh so very clean and the room was big, comfy, well kept, clean, and stocked. This is a place I will stay again when I travel to the area. The Wi-Fi works great, the bar and restaurant are just down the hall and again the staff is exceptionally helpful. I just want to thank the staff for what they do. They deliver and do it well. me thinks I might sound like an advertisement however, this is the hotel I found after reading reviews and checking prices and as I have stated - This is a wonderful place to stay!

Absolutely delicious! There were many great choices. I had hanger steak for the first time.
It was delicious. My husband had chocolate cake that was perfection!
Just went for dinner. We live locally.
The service was great, the food was perfection.
Lovely venue, what more can we say.

Returning to Connecticut for a boarding school reunion, it seemed logical to stay at one of those places that was there when I was in school. The property is well kept, the rooms are a good size, and the lobby coffee and treats are welcoming. There is a decent sized exercise room, and the staff is helpful. The only concern is that the rooms are not at all soundproofed - if staying in the Annex, make sure to request a room on the second floor.

A pleasure to find a nice hotel in a small town. The room size was adequate, the beds very comfortable, and the food and beverage available would compare favorably with a good city hotel. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I certainly would stay there again.

This place was nice - but a big downside for me was very loud slamming doors early in the morning -- they need to soften the bang of the doors somehow ~we had a big couple days at avon old farms school & hoped to sleep in on Sunday but was awoken by the doors slamming & it continued until we were up. :( The bar was fun yet it's acoustics are strange & when it got busy it was so loud in there we couldn't hear each other speak. I'm a New Yorker so you know I'm used to loud. The bartender although pleasant was not paying much attention - it seemed a bit provincial - pretty annoying after trying to get a second beer & it taking 10 mins to get his attention. A little work needed here. Food looked and smelled good. To stay: I Preferred the Simsbury 1820 house.
