A stay at this resort is a great treat in many respects: a majestic, grand old beauty of a hotel, with beautifully manicured grounds, impeccable and friendly service by staff, a gorgeous grand dining room, and affordable seasonal packages.
We stayed in a king deluxe room in the lovely Crane Cottage, and appreciated the spacious room and the wonderful balcony with chairs that overlook a small pond, green lawns and the River. There were many pillows on the king bed, but they were very hard: like sacks of tightly packed grain, making sleep difficult, and the water from the shower was only lukewarm: not uncomfortable, but not hot. It was private and quiet, however: the thick walls meant that we never heard noises from outside, even from the dining room below us.
The historic area is fun to explore: good historic tours available, and we recommend the tour of the hotel that is offered daily. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and a dinner in the Courtyard at Crane: excellent food in a lovely setting. The buffet breakfast was adequate but unremarkable: no bananas or berries for cold cereal and non-sweet breads (toast, bagels, English muffins) had to be ordered after going through the buffet line which meant that eggs and grits had to be eaten before the toast arrived or eaten cold: neither option was optimal.
Would we return: yes, we look forward to doing so, especially now that we know the questions we might ask to turn a very good experience into a first-rate, excellent one.
