We just used Turf Valley for our annual shareholders meeting and dinner. Everything was perfect and the staffs attention to detail was second to none. The meeting room was setup as requested and the break went off without a hitch. Maria's was perfect for the dinner and the menu and food was excellent. Service was attentive and they even bagged the partial bottles of wine for us to take with us.

This is the second year that we've celebrated New Year's Eve at Turf Valley. The food and drinks were once again outstanding. Victoria is the best and always ensures her guests have the best time they can. Top shelf drinks, a lavish buffet, great music and superior service. I can't ask for anything better for a New Year's Celebration.

We have spent the last five Christmas Eves and Christmas nights at Turf Valley and never had a bad experience. I thought it was finally time to give them a Trip Advisor review. We have stayed in the Queen bed rooms, the Queen suite and this year got an upgrade to the King Suite. Each experience has been wonderful. The staff can't do enough for you. The hotel is far from full and they do have limited amenities but this is to be expected during the holiday. The pool, exercise room and locker rooms are open. The dining room staff is delightful, our waiter Dennis was especially friendly and Faith at the front desk couldn't be more helpful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the golf course, fountain view can't be beat at sunrise Christmas morning, especially if it's snowing. Book a visit you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Check out their website. Golf course view is the best.

Its a tradition that we entertain our family at Turf Valley for Thanksgiving. We call the restaurant and book a large table. We call the hotel (usually Spence) and book some rooms.

Always a smooth process.

The brunch is great every year. Food and service. A large crowd of guest is well managed. The rooms are always cleaned and a great value. The front desk is always friendly and efficient to our request.

My concern every year is that the spa is closed on Thanksgiving. The ladies in our family are always prepared to be pampered and get turned down. Not sure why every holiday the spa is closed?

My concern this year was the breakfast on Friday morning. There was an obvious withdrawal of the troops that were successfully deployed for the brunch event. If I recall correctly only one server was on-duty. I witnessed a soccer team leave the dining room due to the slow service and timeliness of food. The outcome was not good. Food was tasteless and the server was clearly under pressure. As mentioned this only occurred this year.

Our loyalty will always remain. We keep our tradition not limited to Thanksgiving. We stopped by the bar this past weekend to support the property during Small Business Saturday. Our plans are to attend a Santa Brunch as usual - for the grand children.

Turf Valley is the pride of our community.

This facility is very well maintained and is up to date. The grounds are immaculate and the golf course was equally impressive from the hotel. This is a large facility with the ability to accommodate large meetings. The room was clean and well maintained. The only change I would have hoped for was the heating and cooling system was loud.

The meeting space was large but very nice. Overall this facility was a good value for the nightly price and for the golfer would probably be a valued retreat.

The restaurant did not open for breakfast until 7 so for those with early schedules this could be an issue. The food was excellent but slightly on the high side.

This was my second time at this location for an annual conference. The whole facility is clean with helpful staff. My room was in newer wing I think, seemed more modern and newer than the room in the older section when I stayed here 2 years ago. The only comment I have about the rooms is that the door and toilet almost touched when closing the door because the bathrooms are on the smaller side of hotel bathrooms. The counters seemed unusually far away from the mirror, so a magnifying or extendable mirror would be a nice addition. My room was on the 5th floor and was quiet despite being near the ice machine. A slight disappointment was the fact that the spa doesn't do hair or nails (really could have used a relaxing manicure!). The meals we had for the conference were good for banquet food; the chicken at dinner WASN'T dry like other places I've been to and the breakfasts and lunch were good also. Its a long drive but I would come back. Overall this is a nice hotel with friendly staff and a variety of conference rooms.

Room Tip: higher floor and on the newer wing are nicer and quieter
