I visited this hotel in April / May 2014 and 13 on a visit to the Dental School in Connecticut. Well appointed cosy rooms with a distinct old world charm , yet with modern amenities . The breakfast spread is sumptuous and the bar on the lobby level is cosy for a relaxed evening and conversations . I will certainly... More

Nothing spectacular about the property. From the room to the pool, everything was average. We did enjoy the patio swing out on the back field. Brunch was delicious, but overpriced. I think the location (Avon) sets the prices for this hotel.

We stayed one Saturday night while biking the Farmington Canal trail with another couple. The rooms were wonderful, super clean and with very comfortable bedding. The outdoor pool is a perfect size, big enough to swim laps and again, very clean, with plenty of towels and chairs available. Wait staff is on hand to serve beverages poolside, a great touch!...

Family owns four other properties, all in similar, affluent areas. Clean, friendly, and pub food was good. A level necessary to serve the folks who come for parents weekend at places such as Miss Porter's School.

Overall, this hotel was a wonderful place to stay - elegant, well appointed, good amenities for food and beverages, comfortable room and beds. This would have been a better review had it not been for the curt, unwelcoming staff at the reception desk upon our arrival (who seemed annoyed that my booking was made through Booking.com). I might have written... More

Avon Ols Farms Hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff funny, friendly, attentive, and professional. The hotel is adding amenities--my room did not, as yet, have an in-room safe; however, it did have an excellent new refrigerator. My only concern was that the doors at the end of the first-floor hall (they face the parking lot) seem to be unlocked... More

I was very disappointed at the room. The location was second floor toward the rear of the older part of the hotel. I generally love it.

I have stayed here before and I think I wasn't happy in the past as there were no coffee makers in the rooms... well guess what... a single serve coffee maker with disposable cups. Perfect!
