Property excellent, Inn excellent, housekeeping excellent, my problem is with the restaurant. The food prepared off the menu is very good; the food on the buffet was High School cafeteria quality; over-cooked and dried out. What really bugged me was the service was very, very inconsistent. I had to ask to be seated the 3 times I went. Dinner buffet was bad, 1st breakfast next day was excellent, 2nd breakfast the last day was very disappointing, smaller portions than the day before, no butter and jelly served, could not get a coffee refill. Mitchell is 3 miles away and there is a custard stand a mile away with some food a mile away.
If you stay get a room off the back of the hotel looking into the woods. I was on the front and the front circle is where the smoking area is so it was difficult to keep my window open.
