Thank you for the review we hope that you will think of us next time as well for another retreat! We could help you plan your getaway as well.
Great location on old Main Street; our meals at the inn were 5 star, a very helpful staff manned the front desk. Be aware that the included breakfast is not served until 8:30 AM, which is a bit late for most energetic tourists. Also know that front desk staff leaves in the evening and a code is required for entry. The owner lives nearby and is available for emergencies.
Thank you for your feedback and we appreciated your thoughts, we will make the coffee station access more prominent for those who would like a nice cup before 8:30am. We look forward to seeing you again.
After a warm welcome by Danielle while showing us some available rooms, we couldn't resist the opportunity to stay Sunday night. Overall it was a great experience. We had room #3 overlooking the street with a neat little balcony. Inside the room was HUGE, claw footed tub, next to a fireplace, with a separate bathroom. Our heating/cooling was also controlled by the thermostat in the hallway outside our room. We requested it be turned off so we could have the balcony door open. My wife will alway remember her soak in the tub, sipping on a glass of Red Obsession fron Ironstone Winery, conversing with me. After her soak, we walked down stairs and had a great meal. Thank you Rose, you're the BEST. Unfortunately, not Rose's problem, but management, there weren't enough staff to handle dinner service on a Sunday night. The table of 4 next to us was having a real challenge just getting their first martini. Their server felt so bad about it that he bought a round of drinks for the table.
Fortunately, there are little things that could be easily fixed in the hotel side too. The pillows are TERRIBLE, cheap thin foam type, even though there were oversized decorator pillows on top of the bed concealing these stupid little pillows. So it wouldn't take much to upgrade the pillows. And then the "breakfast" doesn't start until 8:30 AM, totally ridiculous, as 4 other guests having coffee at 7:30 agreed. Actually for a Monday morning, there was only one little coffee shop open in town where you could order a microwaved egg sandwich. Why they couldn't start breakfast at 7:30 vs. 8:30 doesn't seem like a big deal, especially to take care of hungry guest. Frankly I've never stated at a B&B type place that didn't serve food until 8:30. Kind of silly.
Bottom line, we'll be there again this summer to see if they changed anything.
PS: If you've driven all the way to Murphys and you don't spend time at Ironwood, you made a huge mistake. Ironwood Winery is a MUST SEE and taste.
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay, I am glad that you had a nice visit at Ironestone (I love the museum myself as well) and that you will return. There have been discussions regarding the pillows and we are contemplating incorporating a pillow menu program into the Inn. There are many things we are looking at we will take your words into consideration. We do strive to exceed your expectations and offer you wonderful service.
Murphys is a quiet little town and the "V" is right downtown on main street. The location is great if you want to be close to the wineries and just stroll around downtown. The rooms are nice and comfortable with a feel that equally matches the town itself. There is a fabulous restaurant in the hotel that serves great food and just outside the hotel on main street are multiple wineries in walking distance. The front desk was knowledgeable and friendly, and the feel is more of a b&b than a "hotel".
Thank you for your feedback, I am glad that you enjoyed your time at the V and in Murphys. Please do come back again!
We went to Murphys to pick up a wine shipment at one of the local wineries and figured we might as well spend the night, since we would be doing some 'tasting' while there. We had been wanting to check this place out and they had a vacancy...it worked.
We had a small room above the Bistro patio...you could hear the chatter, but it was all very civilized and not too noisy at all. The room was clean and well-maintained, but space was a premium, and I wouldn't choose that room for more than a one-night stay. The small balcony was about the length of a queen-sized bed and about 3 feet wide. OK for two to sit and have a glass of wine; had to stand up to see over the rail. WiFi worked fine...no TV or phones in the rooms.
Desk people were helpful and courteous and made some recommendations for wineries and restaurants.
Stayed in Room 11, "cottage". Fireplace burns only small duraflames but provides some atmosphere (burn two at a time for twice as much atmoshere ;). 2 person Jacuzzi is brilliant, large enough for a big guy like me and my girlfriend. Shower head could be a little higher for tall guys like me.
Nice wood floor and overall size of room was large, warm and cheery. Perfect for our getaway.
Bed has a a faux four-poster design to it with curtains - really charming. Bed, linens and pillows great.
Had a private furnished porch which we didnt get to use this trip but intend to when the weather warms up a bit.
Staff pleasant, started a fire for us before we checked in and while we had a light supper.
Continental breakfast was great -- and I usually consider them afterhoughts by the hotel and skip them in favor of a breakfast somewhere else. But this one was much better. Pastries were delightful and well made. Bagels were really, really good - soft and great flavor. Smoked salmon with capers was also excellent quality and coffee was very good as well. We sat outside on porch to eat along with a selection of newspapers. They also had fireplace going on in dining room but outdoors was more our style that day.
