Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in a serene location praised by guests for its tranquility and scenic beauty, The Graylyn Estate offers a unique and inviting atmosphere steeped in historical charm. While the estate's well-manicured grounds and distinctive rooms receive commendations for cleanliness and style, some visitors note that the rooms could benefit from updated decor and enhanced amenities. Although the staff is often described as professional, experiences with service inconsistency, coupled with a perceived lack of value due to high costs and mediocre amenities, have been points of contention for several guests.

I am giving a 3 due to lack of attention to details on the part of The Graylyn. The service and food was less than what I would have expected based on my previous experience. We had a limited menu due to it being a conference. The food items did not match what was served, missing sauces, sides that were not what was on the menu, etc...

Hotel's Favorite
Everything was provided with professionalism and grace. Thank you for a great stay. The grounds are beautiful. The service is over the top and the amenities are easily accessed and in great working order / shape. Being able to grab a bike on impulse and ride through the property as well as neighboring Reynolda Park and Wake Fores Campus was a much-appreciated perk. Thank you, Graylyn.

The service was great, the room clean however it was extremely cold for sleeping. It would have been nice to have a coffee pot in the room instead of having to walk outside in the rain across two courtyards for a cup of coffee.

A beautiful property and main building. Mews rooms are a big downgrade from the main building. Insist on main building for your room and look elsewhere if Mews is your option. All rooms priced the same and don't expect bottled water in the room.

We stayed in the mews up the path from the main house. Our room was clean and since it was on the corner we had great light as well. At first I wasn't sure if I'd like being in a room separate from the main hotel, but it ended up being quiet and very nice. I'd request the mews if I go back again

Estate is beautiful, be sure to walk around and see everything (inside and out). Lots of great history and the staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was great and unique, not your average hotel room.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Graylyn! The estate is magical and beyond beautiful. Everyone who works at the estate is kind, helpful and takes hospitality to the next level. Our room was very spacious, the bed was comfortable and we loved staying in the Manor House. I wish the workout facilities had more options (free weights) but I utilized the wonderful walk trails instead! We cannot wait to return so we can spend more time enjoying the beautiful property. It is also wonderfully convenient to WF.

Graylyn’s hospitality and service is unmatched to any other hotel I have stayed at. It was an absolutely incredible destination. You aren’t just there for the room and accommodation, it’s a whole experience. The house is gorgeous and well curated with history, beauty, and class. We absolutely loved our stay there!
