I will not go back to this property because the value simply is not there. People love it, but it was not what we expected. I think it probably depends on your style of travel but I wouldn't spend that kind of money there again.
Service: Concierge was very helpful and we were greeted by very friendly staff. No complaints there. The restaurant staff, on the other hand, was just awful. Breakfast took forever. There are plenty of staff milling about, but they really need to get it together. It is very frustrating to wait 10 minutes to get coffee ordered and another 20 minutes to get the check. It happened three days in a row.
Rooms: We stayed in a master suite. Just ok. Odd floor plans, outdated decor. Comfortable and quiet enough. The bathroom/ closet area was fantastic. The whole room should be up to that standard. Nice turn-down service.
Grounds: The pool is lovely, the gardens are perfect. It is a very pretty property. Peaceful and well-manicured.
Restaurants: I honestly cannot believe how poor the value is here. The bar serves food that tastes good, but it was clearly frozen. No way would I pay that kind of money for frozen food. It is also not very comfortable. Go into town, do not eat at the bar. I will say that the bar staff is very friendly and attentive and they appear to have a nice selection of scotch. The pool bar is nice and relaxing. I would recommend having a glass of wine and a snack there. Very very good service. I'll review Sherwood's Landing separately.
Spa: Go. It is light, airy and lovely. Truly relaxing with excellent staff. Have the concierge make an appointment for you when you arrive - it is wonderful.
I heard other guests rave about this inn, so maybe we are in the minority. At the end of the day, it just wasn't our style. I believe it should be crisper, cleaner and more up to date. I think it would be a good place to have a wedding, take family, or have a business retreat. It was not the romantic, couples weekend we were hoping for. It might be when we're older.
