“Great Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend away to celebrate my birthday. The hotel was prepared for our arrival so check in was a breeze. We were greeted with Rose petals surrounding two two swan shaped towels on the bed, a cheese plate and two wine glasses. Our getaway included a wine tour/tasting which was informative and tasty. Our package included credits toward a gourmet dinner as well. The dinner was wonderful, the food hot, beautifully prepared and delicious.
The next morning we enjoyed a champagne brunch. We were remembered by the wait staff from the evening prior and shown to our previous table. The food again was delicious, although the flavors for the deserts could be improved on. The cookies were bland without distinctive flavoring.
All in all we will be back

We are regulars to the Tuscany House at the Renault Winery Resort and once again we had a great trip. The front desk was prepared for our arrival as usual. Our room was clean and very comfortable during our stay. The hotel is located close enough to the city to enjoy both the "city life" as well as a quiet dinner with an accommodating staff. Dinner and drinks at the end of the evening with an attentive wait staff are always great! We can't wait to go back and enjoy the property when the weather permits us to be on the golf course! The course is fantastic and well maintained. See you soon Tuscany House!!

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of days last week. The hotel staff is warm and welcoming.

The rooms are comfortable, but could use a little updating. The rooms are very clean and housekeeping seemed to take very good care of me while I was here.

I was not here for an event, but noticed that this facilitly would be a great venue for a wedding or corporate event. They seem to have lots of meeting space and look like they could handle both large and small events.

The location is convenienct to Atlantic City, so you can get away for the evening and enjoy some casino action!

I dined at Joseph's where the servers seemed very fiiendly and accommodating.

I got to take a tour of the winery, which was interesting and I believe included with the room rate. I even picked up a couple of bottles of wine to take home, and can't wait to sit and enjoy them.

The property is very unique with all kinds of cool places to explore.

I was bridesmaid in a wedding at this venue and the people running it were so unprepared and unprofessional... words can truly not describe it.
When problems arose at the venue they called the bride (first no) and said they basically did not have a back up plan and wanted her to figure out the next step. Then the groom, groomsmen, and father went to renault to help put with a generator and also had to find the generator (second no). Then the bride had to change in a side room surrounded by her bridesmaids bc everyone/anyone could watch her undress. Not to mention she was originally promised a suite with wine and food.... no wine no food (third no).
The wedding went on and thanks to family and friends it was a momentous occasion. The worst part is that when everything was said and done there was never an apology or an offer for a free night for the bride and groom but instead a legal letter letting the paying party know that they did everything they were suppose to do under the circumstances.... a sorry goes a long way and shame on renault winery for taking any fault. i will never give a dime to this place and will never have a nice thing to say about it.

What happened to this restaurant? It's new buffet is aboluletly awful! Why did they change it. We used to come here quite frequently the past 12 years and have visited recently to find that the 6 course meal has been done away with! What a mistake! Our dinner the other evening was lobster tail and filet mignon. No sauce on the steak and very dry. The lobster tails were also very dry. They must have gotten rid of the chef from a year or two ago our last good meal there. Now, you get an entree and have to help yourself to a lame buffet. Salad fixin's, pork loin roll up was the carving station choice, bread, and tasteless mini pastries. Don't waste your time going to this restaurant you will be disappointed! You'll do better going to the buffets in AC!!

The overall complex is quite nice, with a superb golf course, nice restaurant, and winery across the road. The highlight is clearly the golf course. Not only is it scenic, it is well maintained. The restaurant is far from gourmet status, but ingredients are of good quality. Portions are huge so order accordingly. The kitchen staff would benefit from some training in food presentation...

The hotel itself is OK. Decor is wonderful in public places. Our bedroom had nice furniture, but plain beige walls. The wall mounted heater was very noisy. There are no 'Do Not Disturb' signs, nor room safes. The magnetic keys demagnetize very easiliy, so ask for several at checkin. The TV was miniature.

The biggest problem with the property is lack of good cellular network. It does not matter what provider you have, reception is very poor, except on the golf course. You see people wondering around looking for signal bars - forget it. The hotel WiFi does not have sufficient bandwidth to accomodate a filled hotel. It is impossible for example to use Skype to make a voice call. So depending on what you seek, this lack of connectivity is either great or terrible...

Did I mention the golf course is great!

Room Tip: ask for a 3rd floor room to have any hope of getting a cell phone signal.

We went to the winery for an overnight quick getaway, with friends. We booked the one-night gourmet restaurant package. Upon arrival, the winery has a quaint cute appeal. The grounds are pretty and well kept. Very scenic and pretty. It looked similar to a grand Mexican hacienda in cabo. Check in was simple, and we were there just in time to catch the last winery tour and tasting for the evening. If I knew when I was driving at top speed to catch this last tour what it entailed I would have slowed down. The tour is short and nothing I’ve ever experienced before, having been to another winery. Their bottling operation is very, very, very small. It’s interesting to see the old gigantic oak barrels but that was the highlight. When you enter the dimly lit dark tasting room that wreaks of a dirty wet bar rag odor, you gather around this rather large bar and you are given one glass to taste all of your wines which you have to rinse out between wines. (I found that to be rather disturbing and tacky). They give you a list of over thirty wines, but only let you taste six wines of their choosing. If you interesting in anything special they tell you, you can purchase a bottle. To their credit the make a very tasty zinfandel, but stay away from the blueberry wine and blueberry champagne. We left the tour to change for dinner at the “gourmet” restaurant, I could have stayed in my travel clothes, and needless to say we were over-dresses. There was nothing gourmet about the gourmet restaurant. We expected a gourmet experience and received cheap mass produced wedding reception type food. The only decent thing on the menu was the filet mignon. The extra lobster tail was tough and rubbery. We were very disappointed. So after the disappointing dinner we thought we would go to the main bar for some good drinks and some music…..wrong idea. It was just a wedding party sitting around a bar of the café restaurant watching a sporting event. There is nothing to do at this place. We should have made plans to go over to Atlantic City. The room we had was nicely decorated and clean, didn’t like the motel style bathroom set-up, but overall it was clean and nicely decorated but could use some updating. This is a day trip visit, not a weekend getaway. We were there less than 24 hours but glad we weren’t there longer.
