Geneva by the Lake is the Fawlty Towers of the Finger Lakes region. My daughter and I stopped there in August, 2018. Amongst the ridiculous things we found: • We arrived a few hours before dinner. We could not get a table at the hotel’s restaurant. We asked for a

I was looking to take my daughter, niece, and sister (all from out of town) to a nice, special place for dinner after visiting some of the local wineries. Since one of my guests has severe Celiac disease, I called ahead of time to be certain that they would have a nice GF menu

Thank you for giving us feedback about your experience. We apologize for our shortcomings during your phone call to us. We have many items on our dining room menu that are gluten free.

"I would choose the rooms that are not duplex in the townhouses unless you need 2 bedrooms."
"any floor above the first has a lot of steps...no elevator"
"Upper floors in the main building"
"We did not stay here, we just ate lunch here"
"We prefer the main hotel, rather than the townhouses for the views of Seneca Lake, however, I have not seen all of the townhouses, though."
