“Hauty and pretentious!”
Reviewed June 9, 2004

Visited with a girlfriend. The prices are outragious and the service rude. These folks need to understand what service ia about. It is as if the management hires people who are as pretentious as the Inn! We will not visit again. No warmth, nor charm...

Who are they kidding?!?! I paid $450 for a room (PER NIGHT) at the Mirbeau? In Skaneateles, NY?! That HAS to be a mistake...

Oh no, it was no mistake. For that price, I thought I was going to get the royal treatment. Instead, the service was horrible, the staff was arrogant, and just about everything there was overpriced (food, spa services, etc.).

Not sure where this group gets off charging what they do for an inn that overlooks a trailer park (not even a view of the Lake!).

For the total price I paid, I could've flown overseas and back 3 times.

, Managing Partner at Mirbeau Inn & Spa Skaneateles, responded to this review, June 27, 2004
I would like to respond to the review, dated May 6, 2004. At Mirbeau, we truly believe that the most valuable information for our success comes from the comments of our customers. However, the inaccuracies in the"review" make me suspect of the motives of the author. We have never had room rates close to the amount claimed, and there is no trailer park.

The Mirbeau Inn & Spa has received the Mobile Four Star rating for each year of its operatioins since it opened. Our staff is dedicated to providing kind, caring and professional service to our guests.

We just returned from 5 days at the Mirbeau and we haven't stopped raving yet. We have been to many spas across the US and this was absolutely one of the best we have experienced. Anyone who thinks that the spa treatments are expensive hasn't been to many spas. The food was outstanding as was the service. This is one of the few places that we would make a return visit to in the future.

Lovely setting, attractive room, but terribly overpriced, both food and spa services. No coffee pot in room !! That really got me !! Ground floor rooms have a small terrace, but upstairs no balcony.

Just returned from a lovely weekend at the Mirbeau. The room (we had a "main inn" room, the lowest rate) was comfortably posh, and a steal at $169/night. (I strongly advise checking the inn's website for last-minute web rates, which are deeply discounted). The bed and the bath were both glorious. Room service, however, provided a shock to the senses--I've never before spent $5.50 on a small pot of Tazo tea, even if I was wearing a Frette bathrobe while I drank it. All in all, a great place for a quiet get-away, as long as you do your dining elsewhere . . .
