This is a fantastic hotel. We took a cottage, as we have a 2 year old, and couldn't have been more comfortable. The cottages are spacious and well appointed, the hotel is lovingly restored to a high standard, the molton brown bathroom liquids are a nice touch, as is the breakfast, although we were on eggshells in case our little one did some damage to the fine china.
We were snowed in through the Nemo weekend, and John and Frank from the hotel spent around a half-hour helping me dig out my car, eventually getting some boards and pushing out the car. John, Skip and Linda were very welcoming and friendly and made it feel like a home away from home. You shouldn't need any more convincing to book this hotel based on pretty much all the reviews in here, but seriously, book it. You won't be dissappointed. This is one of the best establishments I've stayed in in the US.
