This was our 2nd visit to this property. On the plus side, the rooms are very quiet and relatively clean & front desk staff friendly and welcoming. The floor in front of the coffee bar in the room was a bit sticky and I found a dead spider and a couple of ladybugs on the floor upon occupying. Although the room had a private balcony, had the weather been nice enough to go outside, we wouldn't have been able to. The door was swollen shut. Other signs of neglected exterior and interior maintenance were noted. The towel heater in the bathroom wasn't working. Plus one of the bath towels had dirt/dust on it that looked like it had been hanging on the rack for a very long time (I showed it to the front desk when checking out). The bartender, Austin, in the Library bar was very personable. We ate dinner the first nite at Darby's. The food was mediocre at best and wine was pricey at $12/glass, but the service was good. The exercise room was a bit sad. Pool was nice and warm. Despite having cable t.v., no major networks were available :‐/. The property itself really is historical and has many lovely elements, but I feel as if Covid hasn't been kind to this place.

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed a weekend and enjoyed the time there - especially the compelling history of the place. Ample resources to read the saga of the Bruce family and their time. Ruins of four slave houses and a large slave cemetery are an ever present reminder of what happened at plantations such as this. The isolation of the location makes an overpowering impression. The mansion restaurant is closed not clear if it’s covid related or not, so there’s essentially only one tavern style restaurant on the resort site and it doesn’t serve breakfast, but there is a nearby town with fast food and coffee in the room and lobby where you can also grab a wrapped muffin or bagel, but not really breakfast. The tavern (called Darby’s after the plantation chef’s name) has good food for lunch and dinner however, and a basic wine list and full bar. Nice to sit outside under the crape myrtles. The rooms are in a side building hotel with a very nice shared brick balcony and rocking chairs off the back side of the building. The public balconies and windows could use a thorough cleaning, but the room itself was spotless, with nice cherrywood floors echoing the main plantation building and canopy beds. The current package deals include a bottle of sparkling wine dinner and cheese plate at a very good rate and are a steal. Also there is a PhD dissertation in the history section of the resort’s website that we highly recommend reading in addition to the shorter version in the binder in the room. Be sure to do the walking tour too, especially of the main house - ask for the walking tour list at the front desk and they’ll print it for you. We enjoyed our stay very much especially the remarkable (and somewhat lurid) history of the location!

The Berry Hill Resort and Conference Center was a last-minute pick for us. We were booked into a nearby bed and breakfast, but the innkeeper called me the day before our journey to cancel our reservation because she was not feeling well. I went back online and did more searching when I came across Berry Hill. The drive was roughly four hours from Hampton Roads to South Boston. We are not as familiar with South-Central Virginia as we are with other parts of the state, so Berry Hill was a pleasant surprise. Approaching the 18th-century Greek Revival mansion is jaw-dropping - the road is tree-lined, and the mansion is magnificent. Although BH is just minutes from South Boston and Halifax, it sits on roughly 700 acres and is somewhat isolated, offering visitors privacy and a historical perspective. During our stay, we had a pleasant experience. Through Orbitz, we booked a deluxe queen room for roughly $125. We had about $21 in Orbucks or the price would have been about $147. Our room included a queen bed, a roomy bathroom with towel warmers, water bottles, a coffee maker, TV, sitting areas, a desk and balcony. The room was clean and quiet. We heard a smoke detector pinging in the room next door and the staff promptly fixed it. We also had trouble with our room cards, but the staff was very accommodating and helped us with that, too. There is room service, but we did not order anything. Our room was near the pool and gym. Both were clean and stocked with towels, though there did not seem to be heat in the gym. I am not sure if it was turned down, turned off or not working. I walked through the women's bathroom by the pool - it was clean and well maintained with soap and shampoo for the showers. The inn was built in the late 1990s, according to staff, and that is where we stayed. We had a continental breakfast; offerings included juice, coffee, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, and cereal. There also is lodging in the main mansion and in two "mansionettes." One staff member told me weddings are a big draw for Berry Hill. Busiest months are from late March through October. In the main mansion, there is fine dining on the weekends, and a "library bar." There also are activities such as live music, yoga by the pool and weekend specials. A conference for quilters was going on during our stay. We hope to return to Berry Hill before summer. Our list of things to do includes a meal at Darby's Tavern, which is at the resort and offers more hours and a casual dining option. We also want to explore the property more, especially the hiking trails, ruins, and out-buildings. We weren't there long enough, and it was very cold, so we decided to do those on another trip.

What a gem this place is! We were in Southside Virginia to visit family and friends and decided to stay here for a change of pace. It is in such a beautiful setting. With the leaves changing it was even more stunning. One felt one had stepped back in history which was special to my husband and I as we are native Virginians. The staff at the desk were welcoming and helpful. Our room was spacious and we had a balcony that overlooked the trees. Our son joined us and he had a beautiful room with a canopy bed. We had dinner and drinks at Darbys Tavern where we met a local gentleman at the bar who was a fountain of knowledge about the area. The next morning we toured the plantation house which was was fascinating. If I had one complaint it would be that there were no safety bars in the shower. Other than that it was a flawless visit.

My wife and I decided to stay at this resort for our Anniversary due to its antique charm and appeal as well as travel time . We were not disappointed! The registration attendant (Nancy) was very informative about the grounds and her professionalism was commendable! The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and the Berry Mansion worth seeing (beautiful southern charm)! Parts of the hotel need some TLC (e.g., exterior upkeep, window cleaning. and new room curtains). The hotel has a pool and sauna; however, a hot tub would be nice! We did a couples massage on the premises (definitely a must)!Food on the premises at Darby’s Tavern was absolutely delicious! Overall, worth the stay!

I was here one night on business. My room was clean and comfortable, and I really liked the hotel’s uniqueness after staying in too many bland chain hotels. The grounds were beautiful, and I hope to have more time to explore them on my next business visit to the area. The front desk attendants were helpful, and the housekeeper who serviced my room did a great job. My teammates who have stayed here recently on business have been happy as well.

I can’t believe I was charged $59. for lotion on legs and polish on toes! No massage, no salts even though they were on her tray, no trimming of toes…unbelievable. NEVER again! I supposedly was to receive a pedicure. I will never recommend a pedicure. Oh, and the chair didn’t vibrate! Darby’s restaurant was delicious. Food was plentiful and very tasty. I was really looking forward to my pedicure…left sooooo disappointed.

I have stayed here for the past seven years while visiting family in the area. It use to be first rate, but it’s seeing some issues lately. Looks like a new company took over in 2018. There have been booking issues, parking issues, and cleanliness issues. Note that breakfast is truly continental so if you expect a full breakfast plan on driving into the nearby town. This is not about the site manager who tried to rectify a staff change, it’s about the marketing. Nice venue for a wedding or conference, but it’s not a resort as people might think. It is sad to see that so many changes are happening. However, don’t book on line, if you do call and confirm the reservation is correct. Ask for an immediate confirmation that you can read for accuracy,

Worst spa treatment of my life. Had the Healing Waters Foot Spa, 30 minutes for $59. This was supposed to include a soak, hot stones and a foot and leg massage. What I actually received was complete inattention. The attendant put my feet in the water and walked off. About 20 minutes later she put paraffin wax on my feet. About 5 minutes later she came over and took it off. Then she gave me a 2 minute foot rub and said it was over. The total time she actually worked with me was maybe 4 minutes. She was stocking waters, answering the phones, etc. I didn't get a leg massage nor a foot massage. The service was not even supposed to include a paraffin wax. She just did that so she wouldn't have to do the massage service. She was too lazy to do it apparently. My good friend had the same service right before me and the provider gave her the same sorry service. We could have gone to our room and put our feet in the bathtub for free instead of putting our feet in the tub for 30 minutes instead of at the spa for $59 each. I had a good facial with a different provider. The rest of the resort was lovely and I had a really fabulous steak at Darby's Tavern. But this spa experience (or lack thereof) really ruined the place for me.
