“Best Place to Stay in Cape May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2007

We just returned from our weekend stay in Cape May. We visit often just to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We arrived on a freezing Friday night. We ate dinner at the Mad Batter. The food is gourmet and the choices are an ecclectic assortment of delicacy. We didn't need to leave the hotel, just walked up the steps to our beautiful victorian room. On Saturday morning, I choose the victorian breakfast. It is an assortment of fresh fruits, breads and cheeses. We spent a lovely day in wondering around and arrived back to the hotel in time for happy hour! This hotel truly thinks of everything!

We had our reception at the Mad Batter in 2001. Since then, we have returned many times as do some of our guest from our reception!

The service is excellent. The food is the best at the Jersey shore and the prices were reasonable!

What a wonderful winter getaway! Our room was beautiful, the service was tops with friendly, gracious people. We felt like we've known them for years even though it was our first trip to their Inn. The food was wonderful -- gourmet enough to feel extra special, yet normal enough to know what we were eating! It was prepared exactly as ordered and the presentation was really nice -- not to mention the taste -- awesome! We're looking forward to our next trip down and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else!
