“Food - yes! Hotel, not so much.”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

Excellent food, polite service but hotel not even close to Relais and Chateaux standards. Our room offered noisy motel style a/c unit, inoperable windows and multiple plumbing issues. However, bed was clean and comfortable and towels fresh. Interior decor is bizarre and in the way.

Im guessing many of the bad reviews have come from people attempting to live above their means. This is a wonferful inn with great staff. If you're looking for a memorable night, this is the place to stay.

We were very disappointed with almost every aspect of our stay but most especially the rude treatment we received in the restaurant. The waiters spent more time whispering about the guests than they spent serving. The food was very mediocre. When we sent an email to the owner he did not even have the courtesy to respond. We loved the surrounding are but will not return to this property. We are certain the owner would not care one way or the other! What a shame because it could be a very lovely place.

As a designer I love what they have done with the hotel ! From the minute we checked in we loved ever minute of our stay. Our carriage house room was so clean and very cozy. I had ordered some wine and cheese before we had checked in and 5 mintues after going into our room we had a knock at the door( most 5 star hotel I have ever went to come late or just forget). We did eat at the inn and the bar and food was 5 stars again. The best of all is coming back to the room and having the best turn down ever.

We used to live in Greenwich and came back to visit. We decided to treat ourselves to a romantic stay at the Homestead. Although the owner was very nice and offered us wine, etc. on our arrival, we were very disappointed. We sat on the porch outside our room and someone served us the drinks. The next morning, the glasses and yesterday's newspaper were still sitting there. The room was decorated nicely except for the excessive dust collecting artificial plants. The room had an unpleasant odor which was disturbing. Breakfast was not included. I didn't think it was up to the standards of the other Calais B & B's we have stayed at. Next time I would save my money and stay at the other B & B in Greenwich.

The noise from I95 and Amtrak is present but unobtrusive. The rooms, although quite small and crowded, are nicely decorated. Relaid & Chateaux . . . Not up to standard. And the staff . . . Stuffy, even snobby. Next time. We'll stay in a Marriott in Stamford and save $200.

This is an awful hotel. Like many others, I was duped into staying here by the undeserved rating from Relais & Chateaux. We arrived Sunday night and were told that no room service or other food was available because the restaurant was closed. The service at breakfast the next day was so bad that we wound up leaving. There was yelling from the kitchen that could be heard in the dining room. The one waiter on duty had trouble handling the three tables in the restaurant. Simple requests for coffee and juice seemed to be an imposition and were never met. At checkout, nobody even asked how our stay was. The "Deluxe Room" was far from deluxe. This place is a joke. I will be contacting Relais & Chateaux to inform that organization of my opinion of the property, and that because this property is a Relais & Chateaux member, I can no longer rely upon membership in Relais & Chateaux as a guarantee that a hotel is a luxury property. If the owners of this property had any self respect they would simply close down. When the vast majority of reviews rate your hotel "terrible" one would think the owners would take notice.
