My wife and I just returned from a celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary. We shopped around on the internet considering at least 5 similar luxury hotels/resorts before finally deciding on Old Edwards. We were not disappointed. Every level of service is superb. I felt like the staff would do everything in their power (and beyond) to make our stay perfect. There was not much extra they needed to do because Old Edwards does everything right.
We stayed in one of the brand new Falls Cottages rooms, which we highly recommend. Our room was appointed with comfortable furniture. There was a large bathroom with separate tub and shower. The bathroom floors are heated-something handy I am sure for the winter. We had a small but nice balcony with comfortable outdoor lounges. The amount of floor space is exceptional, and there is a gas fireplace.
The cottages are surrounded by luxuriously beautiful grounds. They are quiet. If you did not know better, you would never know they are in the middle of town. Having them set apart physically from the Inn is not a negative. It is a short walk through the fabulous grounds. Just walking around the grounds was a special experience.
What can I write about the Spa? It is the most luxurious spa we have ever experienced. There is no detail overlooked.
