My husband and I and some friends stayed at the Griffin Gate property during a recent cross-county motorcycle trip, and altho we probably didn't look like their typical guests getting off the bikes after a long, hot day of driving, the staff was friendly and welcoming, even helping us unload our gear and get it to our rooms. The property itself was great - sophisticated but unpretentious in the way people with old money can be sometimes. Our rooms were a touch above average for Marriot Resort chain properties, as were the facilities, and the surrounding area was beautiful and utterly walkable. We ate both in the bar and JW's Steakhouse where the food was great but the service slow and somewhat grumpy - which was a surprise considering the friendliness and efficiency of the rest of the staff. Overall, the Griffin Gate Resort was a joy to visit, and we'll be back next time we're in the area.
Tip: If you want to visit the spa - which I recommend - make reservations well in advance.
