We stayed at the Hovey Manor this past summer. I wanted more space, so I rented their cottage directly from their website. When we got there, it was clear that the cleaning hat been rushed. The kitchen floor was squeaking when we walked on it, their was opened food left behind and you could see the shadow of the dust in the arc the vacuums had done in the corner of the living room. No super big deal, and when I mentioned it, the cleaning crew came back the next day and fixed it. The cottage itself, Dragonwatch, is very nicely decorated and of good proportion. But keep in mind a few things that the description on the site didn't mention. Firstly, the third bedroom is in the basement of the cottage. Since it's built on a steep hill, there is good natural light that comes in, but it's still in the basement. The bathroom off the main bedrooms is tiny. Think cruise ship tiny. The various decks are arranged so that you're going down many staircases before reaching the dinning table for instance. So we ended up dinning indoor instead. Furthermore, the cottage sits 25 feet away from the owner's house. It's not a very private set-up, to say the least. Having said this, he's a charming fellow. And lastly, when we were leaving, my daughter admitted to me the following fact. In her bedroom, the one in the basement, a chair had been positioned to hide mold on the wall. She didn't want to raise a fuss and asked that I don't walk over to the front desk. But I did show it the the senior person on the cleaning crew waiting outside our door the day we left and asked her that someone call me about this. No one ever did. On the positive side of things, the property his very beautiful, most of the staff was very friendly (see my review of the restaurant on site), the check-inn was easy and the lake was clear and cool. But at +/- 1000$ a night, cleanliness is a given. Considering that it's a Relais & Chateaux only adds to this expectation. In our experience, it didn't cut mustard.…
Recommended by a friend and wanting to escape for a special family celebration, we ended up so pleasantly surprised with the location, facilities, room quality and especially the amazing food (via room service due to Covid closure) and service. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate privately, safely, and very comfortably!
This is definitely a special occasion destination. Very welcoming, very luxurious. This inn has so much to offer and the surrounding villages and towns are a joy to explore. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. We couldn’t have been happier to celebrate our milestone event at Manoir Hovey!
We went for a romantic gateway to relax and that is exactly what we got. The hotel is amazing food was extraordinary, it was very quiet. We would of prefer if the fireplace in our room was place differently, we could berely see it. The was no hot water in the shower, just warm. The lady at front desk could of been more helpful. It would be nice if there was a jaccuzzi or hot tub by the lake for all the guest.
