Beautiful, quaint old hotel. Beautifully appointed suites. Reminded me of an old European hotel. Great location on the lake with amazing gardens. Very helpful staff. Did not disappoint. A much better alternative to the standard hotel in a very picturesque town.

This Hotel is way over priced for what you get. The exterior grounds are beautiful and the rooms are large, but that's as far as it goes. The furnishings, flooring (carpets and tile areas) are in need of a major remodel. The service was also a big disappointment. While we understand they are not providing maid service during COVID at no time were fresh towels, linen, bath products offered during our stay. The TV were flimsy and could not connect to any streaming services. (Not a big deal, but again not worthy of a $500/night hotel). They should have provided a tray of fresh towels, toiletries and a hamper for dirty towels each morning. The restaurant was also disappointing. Again, very over priced, dark, and service was completely lacking. We ate there for breakfast 1 time, there were 2 tables occupied (including ours) and it took an inordinate to get our food and coffe refills were rarer than hens teeth. A third party arrived and literally waited 15 minutes to be greeted at the desk. Enough of the negative. Again, the grounds are lovely and there was plenty to do to keep our 5 year old occupied and have fun. This is a $250/night hotel at best.

My Letter Sent to Hotel Owner...My wife and I recently spent three nights at your resort Geneva on the Lake...we agreed to stay there based on our travel agent's recommendation and your excellent rating as a hotel. We checked in on Friday Sept 17 and checked out on Monday Sept 20. We loved the location of your hotel and we loved the facility proper...however I thought you should be made aware of some issues that we were not happy with during our stay....and therefore, I am taking this opportunity to write to you and share them with you.... 1. we had to kill at least six insects in our room...photo of one of the insects included 2. the room had not been cleaned in a long time as illustrated in my second photo...my wife had to clean cob webs from lamps and from windows in the room 3. the mattress and the pillows were just plain awful...when I checked out I told the woman that they could not even be donated to the Salvation Army...the pillows and the mattress had to be the worst I have ever had at any hotel!5 4. the restaurant highlighted Creme brulee and then advised they had no torch to make it? Why? 5. the hotel had no bar proper...and you had to hope that someone would spot you and come over and ask if you would like a drink? 6. The pool is not heated and the water is cold...and the area around the pool is infested with gnats and mosquitoes 7. Our room apparently was located above the hotel laundry and therefore someone kept the door open to the hall to minimize the laundry heat and smell???? 8. We were told that the restaurant had a dress code....so I packed a blue blazer and a white button down collared shirt only to find that I was the only guy in the restaurant complying with your dress code...WHY? It seems to me that either your managers are not doing their jobs or....your hotel is trying to cut costs at the expense of your guests...in either case, we stayed at other resorts in the Finger Lakes region...paid far less money per night and enjoyed far superior accommodations and services... I thought you would want to know that someone in your organization is not doing their job(s)...and if not...maybe your hotel does not deserve the rating it currently has?

Some reviewers have complained about the dated accommodations. We felt that the accommodations were well suited for the property: not those associated with a modern hotel or lodge, but a place to sit back and relax and feel at home in an atmosphere of past but perhaps better times. We had a suite that included two bedrooms, a bath, a kitchen and a spacious living room. It seemed that many of the accommodations here were of a similar nature. We were greeted by a friendly staff - friendly not just when we arrived but for the duration and as we checked out. The grounds were not spectacular but quite attractive and nicely maintained. No problems here. The restaurant gave us an extremely wonderful evening of food, service and light entertainment.

Seriously Dated! Furniture, carpet decor- everything is dated about the townhouse. It has a patio but no lake view as it’s blocked by the trees. The room size of the town house is so tiny that it felt claustrophobic. The property location is nice hence two stars. Otherwise, there is nothing luxurious and relaxing about the rooms.
