Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Nottoway. Stayed in the Carriage House and was pleased with the appropriation of the room and large bathroom. Was very comfortable.
The restaurant is outstanding. Had the spinach strawberry salad which was beautifully presented, well dressed, and delicious along with a tasty crab cake. Kudos to the chef.
Because I live in hotels literally I never find many things to take exception with while staying in one. It must be clean and the toilets need to work. That's pretty much my criteria. Toilets worked fine, but there was a small problem with the room's cleanliness. I was unable to locate the TV remote and did not want to bother the front desk with such a minor problem. I looked under one of the beds and located 2 batteries, the remote, several bobby pins, an empty can of hairspray, and lots of dust bunnies. This really shouldn't happen.
Outside of our room there was a used q tip that was stuck to the adjacent room's door mat. It was there during our entire stay along with a crushed beer can on our front lawn and a full trash can by the stairwell.
I have no doubt this property was very busy during our stay and prior to our arrival, but these situations take seconds to remedy. A quick sweep under the beds, picking up some small bits of litter, and emptying the trash. These little things get noticed by all (and obviously spoken about) yet take such little time to improve. The plantation is too lovely to be marred by such small matters. Yet it does make an impression.
I do highly recommend a trip there and a tour. Our guide, Margaret, was great and provided us with a thorough tour through the home which was fascinating. Front desk service was helpful and kind. And eating at The Mansion should be mandatory!
Attention to the littlest things will make the biggest impact in future stays.
