My husband and I had been dating several years and had wedding plans that had to be changed close to the date (for family reasons). We didn't mind at all (family and health more important than a specific celebration).
We rebooked our wedding and honeymoon - the honeymoon stay was planned at Mansion Inn in MV. From arrival, it was issue after issue with rude staff (see their comments on our review for an idea of what we dealt with - a hotel that passes judgment on *your* stay?! Yikes). After several days with many unresolved issues (manager lied that room over restaurant never had noise - we had to yell to each other, no sleep that night - then I found the review from less than year ago for same room, same complaint), we gave up and looked to save our remaining days.
And that's when we found the Hob Knob!
What we wanted: quiet, rest, respectful staff, clean accommodations
What we got: a little slice of heaven! Everything here is so well attended to. There's a !delicious! included breakfast, and delectable tea time (though the tea snacks were same each day for days we stayed). A gorgeous wrap around porch like ours at home. The small staff doubles as front desk, wait staff, etc. The woman who worked the dining service while we were there was exceptional - calm and graceful, friendly and wicked efficient.
The rooms were spotless! The bathroom was beautiful. There is an honor bar, lovely common areas, you feel like you are in someone's home. It all added up to several days we were delighted with - I wish we stayed here from the beginning!!
The bus will stop right at the corner if you ask, bikes ($) and maps avail - I suggest biking around Chappy. It's a short but pretty, scenic walk to the town. Actually, the neighborhood is clean, quiet and very well kept. A bike or post dinner walk is highly recommended!
Perhaps this sums it best - I don't like logo tshirts or destination 'stuff', but we dropped over $100 on mugs and a sweatshirt before departing. The mugs are a happy reminder of our honeymoon, and we both love the hoodie.
When we return to MV, we will stay here again - no question!
