3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place is first class in almost every way, just as one would expect at a Relais & Chateaux resort, but we encountered one thing that was so bad that it destroyed the joy of being in The Old Edwards Inn. One evening last week spouse and I dined at Madison’s, the upscale restaurant in the Inn. The meal, the... More

A lovely spa ! Enjoyed my 80 minute Bliss Facial. Denise was a wonderful lady and it was a terrific afternoon. I didn't have a swimsuit (because of the surprise) so I missed out on much of the spa amenities. There is a mineral pool, a sauna and a wonderful shower with jets that would have been delightful.

This hotel is as high end as they come. Professional service, beautiful grounds. We stayed in the Falls Cottages which were beautifully appointed and spacious. Food in the restaurants was very good. The only negative about the place is that it is quite expensive, but expectedly so for this level of a property. We were there with our young teens... More

I have stayed at this property twice - and loved it both times. If visiting - then you must make an appointment at the spa and at Madison's restaurants. All of the rooms are nice...the ones in the Historic Inn are closest to the restaurants/bars/spa. The customer service at this Inn is incredible. The staff is well-trained and it shows!

We stayed one night in the historic inn for our nine year anniversary. Wish we had booked at least two nights! The room was nice. Bed was awesome and the bathroom was luxurious. We had a great balcony overlooking town. Only downside was it was extremely noisy in the early morning so it wasn't exactly romantic sipping coffee with loud... More

What a lovely and historic location. Everyone we came into contact with was attentive and friendly. Lots of fun things to do and great food!! We were there only two nights and wished we could have stayed another two nights!

Other than the crappy weather(rain almost every day) we had a wonderful stay at this resort. Service was top notch! We especially loved Michelle the bartender. Such a sweet and attentive gal!

Yes, we had a bit of a rainy spell toward the end of summer this year. For the most part, it was an afternoon shower, but it sounds like you hit it during the heavy rain. We needed the rain, but it is nice to have some sunshine during your vacation! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay... More

This was a gorgeous, quiet place in the perfect location. We could have parked the car and walked everywhere for a our two day visit but it rained most of the time.
