“Definitely a Splurge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My husband and I recently visited, spending 4 nights on business. It is a very impressive place, decorated in an old fashioned classy sort of way. We stayed in a Jr. Suite and loved the room which faced the front entrance. Maid service was very good, in fact all the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our first night there we experienced a power outage due to a storm and the power was out for 2 hours. We never had emergency lighting in our room, but eventually generators went on in other parts of the resort. So we just went to bed a little early.
We dined in several of the restaurants, and unfortunately found nothing too impressive. That was rather disappointing. The shops were typical overpriced hotel shops, to which we did contribute for some golf shirts and souvenirs for the grandchildren. DO the Bunker Tour, it's fascinating and worth the money. Make reservations for everything! The restaurants, carriage rides, etc. do fill up. The casino loves to take your money, we lost at everything. Our blackjack dealer made SEVERAL mistakes.
We both had massages at the Spa. I also did a pedi. It was all wonderful, including the steam room. Worth the splurge.
I did a tennis lesson, and my husband a golf lesson. Both were very good. I would do another!
I was disappointed in the "fitness center" as we'll. at least what I saw. It's kind of spread out in a strange layout in front of some tennis courts. I guess people are doing golf, tennis, etc for their fitness.
I visited the outdoor pool once. It's nice, but a little small and crowded.
The outdoors are beautiful! The flowers and landscaping are amazing if you're a photographer. If you like to walk, I suggest the Valley View trail around the golf course, 2.5 miles or so. It's awesome. I would have loved hiking up in the mountains some, for which there are trails, but i was alone and not comfortable with that.
Overall, we're glad we went, once, but would probably not make the 9 hr drive to visit again.

This is truly a slice of a world long past. People are gracious. The pace of life is laid back while concurrently formal in its best sense. One can participate in a great variety of activities while visiting. There are multiple restaurants, falconry, off road driving, fishing, shooting, riding, skating, swimming and of course golf. I'm sure to have forgotten something.

Our children visited Drapers regularly during our stay, and were treated really well. Awesome milkshakes, burgers, great wait staff. A must visit if you go to the Greenbrier.

Narrow fairways, high rough, but a really pretty course with great greens and views. Number 2 along the water is really challenging unless you hit a great drive.

The Greenbrier is a magnificent property. Lush gardens and landscaping, chandeliers aplenty, vivid colors on walls and floors. Awesome stuff. Service way above average. Spectacular golf courses, amazing views. Walking trails with views of mountains, wildlife, beautiful million dollar homes. Less expensive restaurants like Drapers are very good, if very expensive for a less expensive restaurant. Breakfast and dinner options are solid. Dinner options are very expensive, and while the servers were excellent, the kitchens seemed to have a hard time getting food out in a timely manner. Recommend highly, but consider going off property for dinner.

We haven't been to the resort in several years. That is a mistake. We travel all over the world and this is one of my favorite resorts anywhere. The grand decor, the service, the amenities, and the beautiful setting is perfect. We were only here one night, but I wish it had been longer. We did enjoy walking the grounds, playing shuffle board, playing pool, and having good meals. I highly recommend this resort. We will be back.

We had a late lunch here and it was a fun atmosphere and good food. It also a fun ice cream bar. Would recommend with children.
