“Bad food long wait”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Our lunch took over 30 minutes to come for à salad and à club sandwich. An order of nachos arrived so cold that the cheese had hardened and they were inedible. The table next to us we heard complaining bécause their hamburger buns were burnt. The only good thing was the iced tea served with à sprig of fresh mint and the soup de jour, à Cream of crab with asparagus.

My husband and I were doing our weekend auction-thing, and were waiting for a sale to start. We decided to check out the town (Abbottstown)...not much to see, but quaint, and nice for a short walk in the crisp fall weather. We saw the Altland House Inn and went in to look around. it looked very well maintained, and had several guests coming and going; a good sign I would think in this sleepy little town. We ordered a drink from the bar and decided to sit out on the big front porch. Unfortunately it only overlooks the traffic circle, but it was a beautiful day and the porch was comfy and fun! The bartender was very nice, and provided us with some home fried potato chips with a lovely honey-balsamic drizzle...yum yum and free to boot. There was a restaurant attached to the bar area, that looked very fresh and modern. I would go back to this site while traveling through Pa for a drink or lunch. Atland House seems like it would be a lovely place for a fun overnight; not too far from sights to see as well.

We were not able to find a hotel in Gettysburg, but were lucky enough to land at Altland House, about 20-30 minutes drive away. Abbottstown is tiny with no cafes that we could find, but is a cute little town nonethless. A very old hotel, this has been beautifully maintained and renovated over the years and still retains its old-time feeling. The room we had was quite large and comfortable, with a tiny table and chairs and furniture and fabrics that were in keeping with the period. Everything was pristinely clean which we really appreciated. That said, the room had not been re-decorated in about twenty years. The bathroom, for example, had a pink toilet, tub, shower and sink with a cultured-marble top and dated brass fixtures. But, the staff were friendly and accommodating if not particularly helpful. The one thing we did not like was breakfast- it was served in a pleasant dining area, but had cold cereal, a bowl of fruit (which was good!), juices and store-bought pastries - sort of yucky. There were also packages of instant oatmeal with no hot water - even after we asked, what we got was lukewarm and that couldn't rehydrate the cereal. We went elsewhere for breakfast.

After eating dinner in the restaurant, we decided to book a room for the night. The room was roomy and clean. Our bed was comfortable. I liked the fact that the bathroom was heated, a plus on this chilly morning. We loved the fact that the building had been around for so long. I loved the transoms above the doors. The hotel was charming and the price reasonable.

My husband and I had visited and done the Valentine's Weekend package there a few times before we got married. The food was always good, and every room we stayed in was unique and very nice. So we decided to actually get married there. The staff was just fantastic.

I recommend the Altland House for lunch or dinner at Lulu's, a drink at the Underside Pub, or an overnight stay. I had a very small wedding and it was everything I could have asked for and more.

Also, Sunday Brunch is fantastic! If you will be in the York or Gettysburg area, check this place out! You won't be sorry!

Room Tip: The higher the number, the bigger and more expensive the room is. But also, the better the room gets...

My wife and I stayed here for a night. It has big rooms and its clean. They started vacuuming the hallway at 7:30! Can you imagine that? the electric went out so we missed the brunch. Interesting they still had the brunch in the dark and with less food and did not give a discount on $23. All in all we liked it!

On a recent motorcoach tour to York/Lancaster/Gettysburg PA, my group of 50 enjoyed one of the very best Sunday brunches I've ever done in more than thirty years in the tour business. And that's saying a lot! Everything about this visit was exquisite . . . beautifully set tables, terrific service, and a magnificent abundance of delightful and delicious brunch entrees and accompaniments! The buffet is huge . . . the hardest part was deciding which of the many gourmet items to select. The items on the salad bar were fresh, the dessert table was incredible, and the entrees were creative and great - with new twists on some old favorites. Other items were brand new to me, and each item was prepared differently than I've ever tasted before - and each was wonderful. You could order a made-to-order omelet, enjoy perfectly crispy bacon or BBQ shrimp, creative pasta and potato dishes, an incredible Frangelica Apple Turkey, and so much more. Ooh, if only one could manage a taste of all the items on this beautiful buffet! When in Gettysburg, don't miss Sunday Brunch at the Altland House . . . this is one of my all-time favorite brunch buffets ever, and will be a highpoint of your visit, too!
