We've stayed at Stonecliffe before, but always in one of the condos, this was our first time staying in the Inn. The accommodations and service were nice as was the complimentary breakfast...a good variety and everything I had tasted good. Guests should keep in mind that the inn is more of a Bed and Breakfast type setting than a hotel. The Inn is very old and holds a lot of charm, but the walls are extremely thin and noise transfers easily. We stayed on the third floor in a very large room with nice woodwork, period anitques, a tile bathroom with claw foot tub and comfy beds. There's a lot of charm in the old Inn, but if you're looking for creature comforts and modern conveniences, stay in one of the condos.
Keep in mind when consiering this hotel that it's a 40 minute walk, or 15 minute carraige ride into town...not a big deal if you're staying for only a night or two, but should be a consideration in longer stays. We dined in Woods, which was not as good as previous experiences. It's still a fun place, with great decor (and the duck pin bowling's always a hit) but the food was not what I thought was up to par, and the service was lacking. I think the entire staff had a slight case of "end of the year blues". All in all, a good stay...I'll stay at Stonecliffe again, but most likely in the condos.
