“It's The Roycroft - Authentic Arts and Crafts Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Whenever I travel to East Aurora, it's The Roycroft Inn for a most restful experience. There's something about the authentic Arts and Crafts architecture and decor that relaxes even as you approach the Roycroft Campus. The public spaces are so charming, with large sofas and easy chairs and a real wood fire blazing in the winter. There are several dining rooms, each setting its own atmosphere. I just love the glass-walled breakfast room, with large chairs perfect for lingering over that last cup of coffee. As an overnight guest, I've enjoyed every room or suite I've ever occupied, each unique - making you feel so special. The bathrooms retain the Arts & Crafts style, yet provide up-to-date amenities for 21st Century sensibilities. The Roycroft Inn should be your next destination get-away!

Room Tip: The Roycroft Inn's website provides plenty of photos to see the various options - but remember t...

I had the privlege of staying in this piece of design history over Thanksgiving. The public spaces makes you feel as if you stepped into the turn of the last century. The salon walls are three quarter panneled in finely grained oak with murals above showing famous sights and scenes of the world. I liked the Venetian scene above the front desk. The salon is properly filled with tiffany style lamps and mission furniture, many pieces carrying the Roycroft mark. The Morris chairs were particular comfortable. The massive veranda is a lovely place to take the air or pollute it with a good cigar. My immaculate guest room was huge and, also filled with mission furniture, though the lamps were mica shaded. It was very comfortable and the bed was superb. There were six windows covered with wooden blinds. The bathtub had a whirlpool function which I didn't use. The bathroom could have used a few hooks, though.

Service was more than excellent. When she saw how tall I was, the desk clek immediately upgraded me to a larger bedded room. The restaurant manager gave me a recommendation for a more pubby dinner location, but was also happy to get me a drink from the hotel's tiny bar. The morning desk clerk cheerfullly accomodated several demanding guest requests.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone, but especially people who appreciate interior design and mission furniture.

Your 'killing time in the salon' pal,

Davy

The room we had was clean and comfortable. There was a sitting area that was large enough to enjoy a drink with friends. The bed was very comfortable.The dinner we had at the inn was superb. The atmosphere at the inn was very inviting. A great get away spot for couples.

The Inn is rich with history, fully restored, full of period furniture, and operates as a living museum. We enjoyed the docent's impromptu tour featuring in-depth explanation of the Roycrofters, Elbert Hubbard, and his descendents. The rooms are very comfortable with beautiful modern period baths. Many seating areas throughout the facility, a cozy bar, great restaurants, and an expansive and comfortable veranda. The Roycroft campus is being restored with a grand master plan. Stay here, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Great wedding venue. Everyone loved their stay and the entire experience. Hotel staff are all very helpful and very friendly. Excellent location, quiet yet accessible for walking around town. Great coffee in the lobby every morning. All the rooms were very large, but some rooms were rather dark, and the bed frames stick out in a way that you can't see them, so a lot of us had bruised knees from bumping into them all weekend (bride and groom included). Definitely pricey, but totally worth it for the special occasion! Only reason I didn't give them a perfect rating for cleanliness is because I found a men's belt on the floor in the corner when we checked in, so obviously housekeeping had not really done much in that area. However, it fit my husband perfectly and seemed to be brand new, so no big deal, free belt!

Room Tip: Room 101 was enormous, sunny, and quiet. Very nice!

This was our second multi-day stay in the past 3 years, and this time was just as delightful as the first visit. The suites are large and well-furnished in the arts and craft style of the Roycroft movement fostered by Elbert Hubbard. We find the large, inviting public areas, including the restaurant and garden, very relaxing spaces to read, have a drink, or a fine meal. Service is pleasant and efficient. We would not think of passing the Buffalo area in future without a couple of nights at the Roycroft.

Room Tip: Phone to book and ask the reservation clerk's advice on room choice. There are some odd-shaped r...

Birthplace of the American arts and crafts movement, East Aurora NY is a beautiful village full of things to see and do. The Roycroft Inn is beautifully restored and everything about it was a delight---the building,furniture, landscaping, and the help. Everybody who worked there seemed to take great pride in the past history and current restorations of the Roycroft campus. We ate dinner and breakfast at the inn. Both meals were delicious, beautifully presented food served by attentive waitpersons in a gorgeous dining room. This place is a gem--don't miss it.
