Spent one night this past week. Attractive older building. Beautiful grounds. On checking in, we were sent to another building, to a room on the second floor, without an elevator; no offer of assistance with our luggage. Room had a musty smell, hard pillows, and no view. Changed to a refurbished room, which wasn't much better. Breakfast service was very...

Yes, this is a very old hotel but that is no excuse for lack of proper care. The carpets were worn, the furniture tattered and the room reeked of mold. The restaurant isn't worth it for any meal and I would recommend you use the gift voucher for snacks and drinks. This could be a very nice place if the...

My boyfriend and I took our smaller boat here for an overnight stay at the beginning of August. We had requested a room with a view of the boat slips so we could tie our boat there overnight and be able to check on it from time to time. Our request was not fulfilled at check-in, however, our very friendly...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Before booking this hotel I read through the many reviews and noticed a reoccurring statement of there being a "moldy" smell. Please keep in mind that this hotel is over one hundred years old and it's located in central Florida which is VERY humid...

If you like old this is the place to go but for me it was way too old. Nothing was updated: not the carpets, the walls, nor the bathrooms. The room smelled of mold and sewage. The carpet was so old it had holes in places and didn't look like it had been cleaned in a long time. The furniture...

Our first stay in Mt. Dora had mixed reviews. The location and staff were wonderful. The ambiance in the tavern, with a jazz trio was also very good. However, even though this is an old facility, care should have been taken in the cleanliness of the rooms. The shades were left down due to the window dirt and windowsills were...

Thank you for bringing your recent experience to our attention. We were very disappointed to read of the series of events you encountered during the course of your Sunday Brunch on our Veranda. The service you experienced was indeed unacceptable and not in any way a reflection of how our servers are trained or of the service and sanitation standards...

We spent last night in this grand old hotel on the lake that has a lot going for it. The location on the lake is fabulous, it is right next to the downtown area, the buildings are picturesque, the bar is great, the breakfast in the restaurant was fine, the staff was friendly and helpful and we felt very comfortable...
