I will first say the grounds and location of this place are gorgeous and as advertised. But for a place that is billed as a luxury hotel that is where it ends. Our room had dirty and dated carpets and floors. The bathroom and towels are as basic as in any motel. The large windows could be beautiful but are covered by curtains that can’t be opened and make it dark. This was a high priced room and we were very disappointed with the quality. We had dinner in the restaurant the first night Although there were only a few tables occupied the service was slow and the food mediocre. Also high priced. This is not a place I would return to or recommend. And as a final bad impression they asked for our Select Registry “certificate”. We have never been asked for a paper certificate before, it is always done online. Another way they are outdated 😀

I just stayed at the hotel in a 2 bedroom suite. It looked like it had new carpeting. The suite was nice; as other have mentioned, the bathroom is old and the kitchen appliances are mismatched. Everything was clean and functional. The furnishing in the rest of the suite were good quality, with all the furniture made by Stickley and decorations that made everything feel like a home. There was bottled water in the fridge and a K cup machine. The room was serviced during my stay. The mattress wasn't very comfortable. Service at the hotel was friendly.

We were enthralled and attracted to the images on the website, particularly of the grounds. In reality, they are even more stunning than the web images. The grounds are well maintained, meticulously groomed, and yet, still inviting; family-friendly and accessible. The grounds crew should be very proud of the outdoor space. The staff is professional, efficient, and friendly. Two, in particular, went out of their way to help individuals who needed assistance. The one disappointing aspect of our visit was our room. I booked a one-bedroom deluxe suite. I was drawn to the images on the website. My husband and I have traveled around the world. When we book a room for $435 per night which is billed as a one-bedroom deluxe suite, we have a certain expectation in mind, especially when we saw the images on the website. What we got was a studio apartment with a subpar bathroom (my first apartment on the lower east side of New York City had a more spacious bathroom) and we expected a suite with a bedroom. What we got was a studio apartment complete with a Murphy bed, and a full kitchen which was not necessary for a two-day stay. The linens were not luxurious and there seemed to be some sort of crinkly plastic tarp underneath the bed linens which was disconcerting and not at all deluxe. Finally, the WIFI in the room was non-existent, and the router in the room was the size of a mini-fridge. We think it is important for you to know about our overall experience. We hope that you consider these comments. Our overall experience was not a deluxe, luxury experience, though the setting was magnificent.

Just came back from this lovely hotel with the kind, helpful staff. The upgraded suite was beautiful with a large sitting room with view of the lake. Kitchen had a sitting area. Bath was a nice size, also, with plenty of shampoo products. Bedroom was comfortable, quiet, although a bit outdated. I loved the comtemporary Stickley furniture, coffee maker, and large refrigerator. Grounds are flowered and beautiful. Pool looks inviting. The newly added bar is cute and relaxing. I do have a few suggestions. So, Keep reading..... I miss having a safe in the room. A bonus would be to bring back the simple breakfast in the antique dining room. Lastly, update wall paint and fabrics.Replacing the brown tiles in the kitchen area and bath would also make a tremendous difference in a new look. All in all, I can't wait to visit Geneva on the Lake Hotel again!!

We booked 4 nights at what appeared to be a gorgeous lake front resort in the Finger Lakes. What we found was a seriously outdated overpriced sad motel. The fabric furniture and the carpeting were ancient. The suite had a kitchenette with 30 year old appliances. The Murphy bed was the deal breaker - where was that in the photos of the lovely appointed rooms? The grounds were lacking attention to detail. Quite a shame to see something so steeped in history in such a unappealing state. We refused to stay and were penalized based on the cancellation policy which is apparently the one item accurately presented on the web site.

Nice hotel. Had lunch there and it was good. They are doing renovations which was not mentioned when we booked. No bar as it was being updated. Construction on rooms were noisy. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. We were able to get one room for early checkin and just put our bags there while we enjoyed the grounds.

My wife and I spent 5 nights in the "classic suite" and our stay couldn't have been better. The suite was wonderful, great view of the gardens and lake and clean and comfortable. From the front desk staff to housekeeping to dining room and maintenance staff, all friendly, courteous helpful. Morning coffee great, we ordered some online for home. Easily accessible to all the Geneva wineries and restaurants.

The hotel is a beautiful building with a large manicured lawn right on Seneca lake. There is numerous seating right on the lake, perfect to enjoy a glass of wine. However our room was extremely dated and quite honestly more like a roadside motel than the luxury resort it is priced at. There was no bar available, under renovation, and there seemed to be a lot of repairs and construction occurring the night we were there this week. The restaurant was extremely expensive, 50.00 menu prices so we ate elsewhere.

We were there at the restaurant 2 weeks ago with a party of 6 for dinner. Very nice place, great view and garden, but the whole dinner was very disappointing and too expensive for what is being offered. It started out that the cocktail ( whiskey sour) came without any garnish. Followed by unpolished wineglasses full of water stains. I shared the crab cake appetizer with my husband. Looked and tasted like deep fried. Had nothing to do with a fluffy moist crab cake. We had a rack of lamb and the duck breast for main course. I expected more than 4 thin slices of duck for 49 dollar. The lamb was cold, the veggies lukewarm. After complaining about that the meat was lukewarm but at least the veggies were hot ;-). (52dollar) The waitress was very nice and polite but in a restaurant like this I expect a well trained and attentive staff. We had to get up and get the bottle from the wine cooler ourself to refill our wineglasses. This is definitely not called “fine dining”

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.
