The spa has reduced its services, hours and quality. After waiting months for an opening we were finally were able to go and it just wasn't the same. It used to be a day of pampering with extras like tea and scones, an exercise class, and wine tasting but those aren't offered anymore. We ate at Ascots, drinks were fine but the food choices were limited - we each bought a meal but ordered appetizers to share but the portions were small and not commensurate with the price charged. Most of the staff were nice but some were not. We asked about some of the specials they used to have and the women in the boutique were kinda rude and said they don't do the day spa packages anymore. Overall a nice time but, not the experience it used to be. We will be finding other places to go in future.

Thank you, 895christyk, for your feedback. We have changed a few things we have done in the past but are looking forward to a spring and summer filled with NEW activities and entertainment throughout the property. We hope you had a chance to try our homemade granola when you entered the spa, a NEW treat for all our spa guests! We also have virtual fitness classes running all day in the yoga studio, plus live Yoga on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. We have recently introduced Movie Night Tuesdays on the Garden Patio, Trivia Nights at Ascot’s every Wednesday, live acoustic guitar entertainment at Ascot’s every Thursday and piano entertainment in the lobby on Friday’s – all complimentary to our guests. Based on your feedback, it looks like we will need to look into better ways to communicate all of these new activities to our guests. We apologize for your experience with some of our staff as this is not the level of service we strive to provide and will make sure the management team is aware of your comments. To clarify what they should have, although we no longer offer day spa packages, we do offer Graduated Discounts allowing guests to custom build their spa day and save when booking multiple services. We hope this will allow our guest more flexibility and choice when planning their day.

My mom, sister and I went there last weekend to surprise my other sister for her 60th birthday! I can't tell you how disappointed we were. The first villa they put us in was totally disgusting! I wouldn't let my dog stay there. The furniture looked like it just came out of the dumpster, the rugs were dirty and dingy and didn't look like they had been vacuumed in a very long time. The kitchen appliances were sooo outdated. There was a dead bug on the couch. We complained and they put us in another villa. This one was a TINY bit better, but still the rugs were not clean. Somene (who I assume was the manager) said he would sent housekeeping to vacuum, but when we returned from the Spa, they had not been cleaned. We asked to be moved to a regular room and not a villa, but unfortunately, the weekend was sold out. For the amount of money they charge you, I expected MUCH more. I guess I should have ready the reviews. The spa itself was just ok. The furniture around the pool area also needed to be replaced. Many of the pieces were worn right through. The "nap" room furniture has also seen brighter days! We had dinner reservations at Kensington's restaurant on Saturday night. The food was just terrible (and I am not a picky eater) . I got the filet. I absolutely hate seafood and unfortunately, I think my filet was cooked on the same grill that seafood was. I could smell fish and it just turned my stomach. The potatoes and vegetables were luke warm. My mother and other sister got the tuna, which they said was grey. I am surprised we didn't get sick! This weekend was supposed to be a memorable one to celebrate my sisters 60th birthday. My mother, sister and I felt so bad that it was such a disappointment all around. Again, for the money they charge you, we were expecting MUCH BETTER!!! TOTAL AND COMPLETE RIP OFF!

This could've been an amazing stay but unfortunately too many elements made it rather mediocre. The villa itself was nice and sweet however they never came to clean it which was rather odd given we stayed multiple nights. The first night we ate at Kensingtons out of convenience. Some items were decent like the fresh bread, shrimp appetizer. But most dishes were very poor. The short rib was over cooked, dry, and overly salty. The filet was subpar. But the apple tart was delicious. Next day we went to the spa. Robes and slippers were lovely but the spa was very crowded with 10 women trying to fit into the hot tub. We had booked detox pedicures but the pedicure was not at all pampering with barely any foot massage. But the final day we ate at Ascots for lunch which is driving this two star rating. We waited 20 minutes to place an order and another hour to receive it. When it arrived my meal was wrong. Even though they said they'd fix the order it never came, and yet the final bill included it and I needed to argue with manager to have it comped given it wasn't what I ordered! Left feeling this facility didn't have any appreciation for client servicing. It's a shame as it could've been a lovely stay.

Avijl, thank you for your time in leaving this detailed review. We truly appreciate feedback from our guests as it allows us to constantly monitor the service excellence we strive for. We are happy to hear that you found your villa to be nice, but please note, during these times we do provide daily housekeeping service upon request only. We communicate this upon check-in and will follow up with our front desk staff to see why this step was overlooked during your stay. Kensington’s Restaurant and Ascot’s Pub are great additions to our destination, allowing guests to eat conveniently and comfortably on property. We are disappointed to hear your dining experiences were subpar and always encourage all our guests to bring any issues to our attention while they are dining with us so we can work on correcting them immediately. We will make sure to pass all of your comments on to our Culinary Team and well as F&B Management.

We arrived for a girls night at the Spa and from the moment we checked in the service was exceptional. We had a wonderful day at the Spa and even though they were completely full, it did not feel over crowded by any means (which was my initial worry). The spa was relaxing, clean, and felt safe. Our serves (as always) were wonderful. We had drinks at the juice bar, lunch at Ascots, and dinner/breakfast at Kensington's. All the meals were DELICIOUS! Our server at dinner was top notch and although we were the last table to leave, never felt rushed. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Villa, which was wonderful and we had the gentleman who drove us to and from the Inn to light our fireplace for us that evening. The only complaint I have is that their online website/reservation system does not seem to be working. I tried two separate email address and called. I believe this is why the wait time on phone calls is so long. BUTTT once you do get someone on the phone they are always so amazing, so it makes it all ok! Would highly recommended fir a girls trip!! We are already planning next years trip!!

Took 3 hours on the phone and had 19 confirmation/cancellation emails to book 3 spa apps. Called to confirm the day before. Showed up and apps were cancelled. Now stranded with friends and ruined plans! Have been coming here for years but this is/was my last visit. So horribly disappointed on day we were looking forward to some girls fun. You cannot plan or depend on any info/messages from them; just be ready to be disappointed. 👎👎👎 (The 1 star is an overrating but had to add it to be able to write a review)

Dear AletvanBeek, First, we would like to sincerely apologize for any for inconvenience in booking your spa day. Our new booking system, implemented at the beginning of December, has been design to make our customers’ overall experience better, but it did take us a few days to work out some of the specifics of the booking process. That being said, we were able to speak with everyone involved in your actual visit and are unfortunately disappointed to read the second half of your review. It seems as though your specific itinerary was canceled by mistake instead of your travel partner’s itinerary when they called to cancel. Although not the day you intended, our Spa Director tried to make up for our error and was able to make sure to get a massage in for you that day at no charge and for your inconvenience, also treated you to lunch. She checked in with you at your departure and you seemed happy and enjoyed your day. Hopefully based on your past experience, you might reconsider this review and another visit.

I had a standard room in the inn. I will start with what was well. The restaurants has amazing food and drinks. There is a bar outside which has a great view, and a bar /restaurant inside when the outside is reserved. Rooms do not have fridge or coffee maker.(coffee is provided by the restaurant). Don't even get me started with the lack of air conditioning. The staff seemed overwhelmed. I understand staffing shortages, however check in is at 4 , I couldn't get into my room till 6. Room was modest, bed , tv ect. Bathroom setup was strange, as expected in an older converted home. Realistically, this was not my choice. If I had to re-do this trip I would have stayed somewhere else, and paid the resort fee to hang out.

Dear SDomsdelux, Thank you for the kind words about Kensington's and Ascot's, but are discouraged to hear you did not like your accommodations. As a Historic Inn, our décor and room design sometimes is not for everyone. We do apologize for any inconvenience at check-in. It seems as though the day you arrived was one of our busier days and we are working on having enough staff to support those times.

SHEY did my pedicure she was so friendly, attentive, and gave a great massage. I highly recommend to anyone looking to have their nails done. I will definitely come back just for her!! Thank you 😊As for the spa, it seems like they have cut down a lot. The tea was different was not a fan, and they don’t do the wine tasting or tea and scones anymore I was a bit disappointed. The juice bar- I looked at the protein offered and it is “nestle” brand whey protein, a plant based protein on the menu would be great! If there was “unsweetened”almond milk or oat milk as an option that would be nice, because the smoothies itself are already sweet.

Dear marieeeeeo, Thank you very much for your five-star review! We will definitely pass your feedback about Shey on to the Spa Director and the protein suggestion on to our Chef. We understand the tea and scones and the wine tasting were a guest favorite, and as soon as we feel we can do it safely, we will bring them back!

My friend and I had a wonderful mid-week overnight getaway! The facial and body blend massage were top notch. We appreciated the small details that made the stay even more enjoyable such as the ice cold cloths for use after the steam room or whirlpool, the swimsuit wringer, and all the amenities in the locker area. The meals were outstanding, and Ed was very accommodating as our server, bringing my friend a blanket on the dining deck after the sun went down. Kyle was sweet, also. We enjoyed the delicious lunch at the juice bar, along with the yummy smoothies. Overall, it was a great experience and we were impressed. The only reason for the 4 stars is a few comments for the suggestion box: Firstly, while we were resting in the “Relaxation Room” (and nearly asleep as were several others), we were suddenly interrupted by an attendant loudly calling out for a person’s name. This didn’t seem consistent with the “sshh” signs and “keep your voice low” signs throughout the spa. Second, before we were seated for dinner, the hostess asked whether we’d like indoor or outdoor; it was a nice evening but starting to get cool but the hostess assured us that there were several outdoor heaters if we became chilly. Well, we found out an hour later that none of the heaters had been working. Should be better communication between staff. Lastly, and very minor, but the lids on the metal creamers were malfunctioning and the cream was a mess spilling all over each time we poured. When we asked the sever for a replacement, she told us they were all like that. Maybe time to order new ones. We will definitely return, as the inn and spa overall experience outweighed the minor issues.
