From the moment we stepped in, we felt luxurious. Dinner with a live piano brought the best memories and it is a rare treat nowadays. We slept profoundly in fluffy yet firm beds, and loved the breakfast buffet.

Hotel's Favorite
This was our second stay at this property and while the first visit wowed us, this one did also. This was our first fully-staffed visit due to pandemic restrictions the first time. I must say that every member of the staff we encountered was professional, courteous, friendly and most of all helpful. The dining and lounge areas were clean and service was impeccable. This in spite of the fact that it was a game weekend and the activity of three weddings! Yes, the lounge and dining areas got crowded during peak times but the service never wained. The room was comfortable and nicely appointed with everything in its place. The only hiccup was with a pre-ordered room amenity in the form of the Chefs Mix snacks. The order was incomplete but was remedied in a timely manner. We will stay again!

We spent one-night at this hotel on a road trip. Because we arrived late and checked out early, we didn’t have much time to explore. The hotel is lovely as are grounds. It has a casually elegant feel. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We ate a casual and delicious dinner on the patio at the pub. Our room rate included a typical buffet breakfast. If ordering off of the menu instead, each guest gets $20 credit, which can used up quickly. You can either valet or self-park. I would stay here again.

This is our go to place when we visit family in Durham. The level of service is rare today. We love the bellmen. The Fairview Restaurant cuisine and service and atmosphere is really top notch. Walking the property is always a treat. Next time we plan to take our clubs and golf.

I loved staying at this great hotel while my daughter was at camp. It was very clean, staff great, and loved all restaurant options. It was just quick walk to fields. Relaxing pool and golf. Highly recommend

This is our third trip to WDI and each time we appreciate it more! The golf view one bedroom suite is so spacious and comfortable we could move in. Amazing that we never have to wait for an elevator, despite the fact that it was a holiday weekend and there were several large events going on. The golf course was in excellent condition. Housecleaning over the weekend is a rarity anymore, so the fact we got missed one of our three days was not really an issue... we were provided clean towels and extra coffee just minutes after we requested. Restaurant still seems to be recovering from COVID... no daily specials, menu somewhat limited but service was friendly. Looking forward to returning next year.

We have been here several times and it is perfect for the whole family. Lots to do, wonderful restaurants, beautiful rooms, and amazing service. Great for Duke related visits but also a nice resort just to visit.

I had a lovely time with my daughter at this hotel four years ago and like it's convenience to the Duke University campus, but I guess the saying "It's never as good as the first time," is accurate because my second visit was disappointing. When I went to check in the attendant said they didn't have my reservation, even when I showed her the print out and email confirmation from hotels.com, which I've used for years with no problem. After the attendant fiddled on the computer for 10 minutes I asked if there were other rooms available, as the hotel clearly wasn't fully booked. They finally got us in another room after we stood stressed and exhausted from our flight for five more minutes. The hotel restaurant has a limited menu, and the food was bland. Later that evening, my son and I ordered room service cake with fruit, and it came with freeze dried strawberries. I asked for crispy bacon with my breakfast and it was delivered burnt. Two items I ordered were missing. The server on the phone had an attitude when I called to have them sent up. Also, a wedding was going on at the hotel and we were awakened at 8 a.m. in the morning by loud music and beating drums. I definitely won't be staying here again if I return to Durham.

We are very sorry to hear that your visit was less than perfect and not as good as the last time you visited. We are very sorry that we missed the mark on many key items during your stay. We have let the food and beverage team know about the disappointments at breakfast and with the cake. We hope that you will allow us an opportunity in the future to make this up to you. As hard as it is to hear about failed visits, it only helps us to learn and become better. We hope you will consider us again in the future. We would appreciate the chance to be as good as you had remembered.

Always great service, great rooms, and great golf. Fabulous history and historic furnishings. The hotel is only matched by the outstanding condition of the golf course itself. Only suggestion is cart path repair--they are getting rough.
