“Overpriced and Underserviced”
Reviewed August 7, 2006

My fiance and I spent Valentine's Day at Oheka Castle in February 2006. To be honest, we were expecting more for paying $600 per night. We were guaranteed a deluxe room with a view of the gardens as well as a 5 course dinner.

The room we stayed in had nice marble bathroom...but that's about it. The TV did not work properly and the window was tiny that barely a ray of sunshine was able to peep through. I think the formal gardens were out there...but who could tell ?!?! I was also disappointed that there was no room service. When our stomachs started to growl the only thing we could do was drink some water - restaurants would not even deliver food to us.

Dinner was absolutely atrocious. Everything was over or undercooked and very bland. Oheka does provide a nice continental breakfast for guests but don't have the croissants - true sand paper.

The grounds are nice but definitely look more luxurious in pictures. In addition, the Castle is just too far out of the way - too far from NYC, too far from shopping, too far from decent food. it's not a treasure worth finding.

Overall, the castle and staff have a cold feel. We were going to have our wedding there and even left a monetary deposit but eventually we decided to move our wedding to a warmer environment.

  • Liked — Marble bathroom

The reviewer actually booked her wedding at Oheka a few weeks after Valentine's Day and then cancelled for personal reasons. The reviewer was then discontented with our standard cancellation policy. Oheka is always open to receiving honest reviews which help us to improve the service we provide to our guests. Unfortunately, this review is inappropriate.

OHEKA CASTLE is a majestic historic mansion located on Long Island's famed Gold Coast between New York City and The Hamptons. This French-style chateau is the second largest private residence in America and has undergone $30 million in restoration to transform this stately home back to its former 1920's grandeur. OHEKA is listed on the National Register for Historic Places and boasts 32 luxuriously appointed guestrooms and suites on the upper floors where guests can sleep like royalty. Guests can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the beautiful formal gardens designed by the Olmsted Brothers, take a mansion tour and learn about the rich history of OHEKA and Otto Kahn, or dine in the OHEKA Bar and Restaurant before retiring to your uniquely designed guestroom for an in-room massage. Breathtakingly beautiful, OHEKA CASTLE is admired around the world as a premier venue for exquisite weddings and gala celebrations and has been the backdrop to many prominent film and photo productions.
