I made a reservation for one night over a year ago with the man who owns Edinwilde. My husband's brother was getting married and my family needed a place to stay. The owner told me that they usually didn't let children under 12 stay there, but that he would wave that for me because the room was at the end of the hall and a little bit more on it's own. I have two girls, one is 16 and the other is almost 4. I thought, fabulous!
Fast forward to last Saturday. When my family and I arrived, we were greeted by the owners of Edinwild, a husband and wife team. He was friendly enough, but she was blatantly rude, asking us how many of us were staying. We were obviously a family of four! When I told her we all would be staying, she looked at me and said that they don't usually allow children under 12 to stay. I told her that her husband had okayed our stay. She told us we could stay, but that she would have to have a talk with him about that and showed us to our room.
The rooms are clean and nicely appointed - no complaints there! Our only complaint was this horrible woman who made us feel very unwelcome. When we went down for breakfast the next morning, after an entire night of whispering, her rudeness was taken up a notch. When my 4 year old went to put a muffin on her plate, the owner pushed her hand away and told her to let her Dad get it for her! When we sat down at the table she had a booster chair waiting in hopes to keep her contained. My daughter doesn't use a booster chair anymore! The owner didn't even ask us if we wanted to use it. It was implied that if we were going to eat breakfast, she would sit on it. As we ate she cast dirty looks at us and then tried to be overtly friendly to an elderly lady sitting by us. She was so mechanical and fake. Our stay at Edinwild was the worst stay in an Inn that we have ever experienced! It's not the Inn itself, but the dragon lady who runs it! She even wiped up a few fallen crumbs while we were still eating! Dreadful!
