The location of the historic Nonatum Resort is lovely and the grounds are beautifully kept. The staff was very friendly. However. The reservation for one of our party was bungled and, in spite of a printed confirmation sent from the hotel, the room that had been pre-paid was not available and a lesser room was substituted. Very awkward. For $400 a night, one hopes for better! Management sent two bottles of wine to the room in apology. The rooms themselves were outdated, the bedding simply average, and the bathrooms minimal (I knocked the toilet paper holder off its hinge - a very tight fit ). The worst thing, though, was the noise level. You could hear EVERYTHING in the hall, the room above, the bathroom above, the pipes in the wall - you name it. A poor night's sleep.
This resort accommodates large parties and tour buses which makes the dining room feel pretty darn full. I would not return in spite of the great location and lovely grounds.
