“Quilt Retreat Fe. 5-7, 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

This was a wonderful place to book a group function. The quilt guild that I belong to in Lewes, DE, booked a large room for activities. Everything at the hotel was wonderful: pleasant and helpful staff, clean rooms, great food. All rooms had ocean views. Our group is planning to return there next year.

Room Tip: Feedback from others in our party sounded like all accommodations were equally good.

My husband and I have frequented this hotel/restaurant many times over the past 25 years. We have been visitors since the very beginning and before that stayed at their motel. The hostess in the restaurant, Pam is always very pleasant as are the waiters/waitresses and the conciergers. Everything is always very clean and ready for us when we check in and they are always willing to help when needed. I would recommend this hotel and/or their motel and restaurant to everyone. They have an indoor pool with a hot tub and we have witnessed many a family enjoy the pool as we do. This weekend was the best!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent and are ocean front and have a deck.

So glad to hear that you got to visit us on Valentines Day. We are thrilled that Pam is one of our team members also. She is always there to welcome you with a big smile and sometimes even a hug, as I'm sure you know. She is a very important part of our team. We will let her and the others know about your kind words. Thanks for continuing to come back to see us year after year. It means the world to all of us!

We attended a Marriage Retreat sponsored by our church, Central Worship Center of Laurel, DE. We there for Fri afternoon thru Sat. evening. The meals were great as well as the teas during the afternoons. The accommodations were good and comfortable too. The conference room was more than adequate and the snacks provided were more than sufficient. We had 34 couples attending and everyone seemed to be pleased with everything.

My wife and I just spent our 10th anniversary at the Dunes Manor and it was great! We've actually spent 8 of our 10 anniversaries there and each has been a true pleasure. The staff, restaurant and accomodations are consistently top notch. Recent decor and furnishing updates meant our room was not only comfortable but bright and visually appealling from the biggest to smallest detail. Cleanliness level is definitely a "10" All said the topper is still the Victorian ambiance, warmth and old world style beach experience that can only be found at the Dunes Manor.

Room Tip: Snow on the beach is beautiful which makes the off season even more awesome and the great thing abou...

This hotel will take you back to a quieter time as soon as you enter the doors. The Victorian period and the beach go hand in hand and this hotel has lots of Victorian touches, starting with the double staircase as you enter the lobby upstairs. Every guest room faces the ocean and all have been recently renovated to reflect the soft blues and greens of the beach. The beds are comfortable and housekeeping does a good job here. The restaurant is conveniently located on the Lobby level and serves breakfast (until 11:30), lunch and dinner. The food is very good and will satisfy your tastebuds. Vince, Pam and the serving staff make it a very pleasant experience. The entire hotel staff is friendly and very accommodating and you'll get to know them better with each visit because many of them have been here forever! Each afternoon, tea and krumpets are served. It will take you back to a more simpler time when families came to the beach to enjoy the sun, the ocean and the boardwalk. This hotel will not disappoint you - it is a gem among them all. Oh, and don't forget to check out the pool and jewelry store. On certain evenings, you'll hear the piano playing of Shirley Toms who's infectious laughter and playing ability will make you want to linger in the lobby until your eyes fall asleep as familiar melodies past and present are played on the grand piano. Try The Dunes Manor just once, and you'll be hooked like we have been for the last 10 years. We're retiring here thanks to the experiences we've had at The Dunes and Ocean City. Don't wait too long...make your reservation now! Enjoy The Dunes experience!

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront so no complaints there! They also have handicapped rooms that are nicely...

Wow we couldn't have said it better! Thanks so much. We can tell that you have been coming here for quite some time. You said it all and how wonderfully written. It really is a step back in time and a hidden gem. It's the familiar faces like yours that make it so easy for the employees to stay working here year after year. Well okay, they are treated great also but mostly it's the return guest that we look forward to year after year and your review just proves that point! Thanks again

We have come to the Dunes Manor Hotel for the past 6 years bringing 20-30 couples with us. We have been extremely happy with the willingness to listen to needs and their attention to detail, for a diverse group. We feel that the Waite staff have been particularly wonderful in responding to our needs. As we are a couple oriented group we would recommend this Hotel and it's Victorian style for anyone who is looking for a romantic getaway. We will continue and have already booked our weekend for next year, as they have met and exceeded all of our expectations.

Room Tip: Every room faces the ocean no room is bad. Marvelous sunrise if you wish to see.

For the past seven years I have organized a retreat for the women of St. John Neumann Catholic Church at the Dunes Manor Hotel. This year proved to be as excellent as the other years. The Waite staff was especially friendly and attentive to our needs. It is difficult to feed 70 women at one time and keep the coffee and tea flowing. The Waite staff went out of their way to make our weekend especially pleasant. The entire hotel staff was courteous and efficient and bent over backwards to help to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean and newly decorated. The afternoon tea is a special treat for all. We will continue to have our weekend retreat at the Dunes Manor.

Every year we are blessed to have the women of St. John Neumann Catholic Church at the Dunes Manor Hotel. The pleasure is ours and it is seeing the same faces year after year that brings a smile to faces of the team here at Dunes Manor. I say this for the entire staff because I know it to be true of your group along with all the other folks we have, that come back year after year. We are thrilled to hear that every thing went well again and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
