We loved almost everything about this hotel from the moment we drove up. Before we even got there, we were thrilled to discover the buy one night, get one free offer during midweek, which had early check in as standard. The location is perfect for a winter trip as the roads here were not covered with snow yet it was a very quick drive up to the snow. The entrance area is beautiful with a well landscaped water feature, and as we entered the lobby, we were met by a crackling fire. The staff was friendly and helpful, and we were immediately impressed with our room. I thought the bed linens were gorgeous, and turned out to be some of the most comfortable I have experienced in a hotel, and we had a lovely view from our patio and were close to the pool. We also had ample storage - I loved the closet lined with all the pegs - and 2 spa robes in the room for our use - perfect for coming and going to the jacuzzi in Winter!
The first morning, we had breakfast packed to go so we could eat in our room. The staff again was very friendly and helpful, and I loved the interesting menu selection, but we found the food to be just average. My husband was expecting real Italian sausage in his omelette, but it was only breakfast links. The in room coffee was quite good however! We also used the puttputt course, which my son loved, and the spa later that day. The spa was really amazing - there was a mix up with our appointments, but it was easily fixed and they even offered us a discount. The building was beautiful and both of our services were great.
We really only had a couple "issues" with our stay:
The internet was patchy.
We were disappointed that microwaves were not standard.
There was no table where the kids could sit and eat or do activities.
My number one issue, however, was no high up safety latch on the door (actually no safety latch at all). Our two year old could easily open it with nothing to slow her down, and she got out of the room so we had to go chase her!
Other than those few things, we loved the hotel and hope to return some time!
