We had a good experience at Dunleith. It is an historic antebellum home that sits on a large chunk of land. Former household buildings have been converted into a gift shop and restaurant and bar lounge serving its guests. We stayed on the second floor, and there is no elevator, but here you are expected to have a bell boy attend to your luggage. Parking is on premises and we were able to park very close to the stairs to our room. There is no additional charge for parking, it's free with the room. The room was adequate, with two beds as we requested - a double and a twin (we would have preferred two doubles or queens but that was not available). We had a closet and a dresser, there was also a fireplace in the room, but probably is never used, since it's way too close to one of the beds. The room had a TV which had a very small screen (13") which made it difficult to watch it from the bed which it faced, since the distance was too much for such a small screen. The sink was in the room, the bathroom had a bathtub and the toilet. Everything in the bathroom worked fine. The air conditioner worked fine and cooled the room sufficiently. There was no coffee maker in the room nor were any complimentary beverages made available to guests. There is a restaurant and a bar lounge on the premises. In the restaurant they serve a full complimentary breakfast to the overnight guests. The breakfast was very good, guests select one out of several options. The grounds are big but not really utilized. There is a bacce ball court, a swimming pool, and a carriage house where about 9 historical carriages are displayed. Guests get a complimentary tour of the first floor of the Dunleith main house. At night the property is lit and guests are treated to a beautiful view of the lit up mansion. Overall this was a good experience and a good value. We enjoyed the tour of the home the next day and the overall location was good - halfway between the historic downtown and the newer shopping and dining areas.
