“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

It was our first visit and we were greeted very warmly by Jeff who showed us to our beautiful room, which was quite spacious and lovely. The grounds are beautiful and nicely maintained and we enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking the scenery and listening to the music. We did not take advantage of the heated pool but it looked very inviting.The Inn is very attractively decorated with beautiful art work and antiques throughout. Snacks and drinks are available all day long and then Jeff presented cheese and wine (a great choice) in the evening. Breakfast is an experience you will never forget, not only delicious but so attractively presented. We will definitely enjoy more of Jeff's good cooking on our next visit when we will have dinner there. It won't take you long to become attached to Elle, the golden retriever, with a winning personality. We enjoyed our visit so very much and plan to return. We love shopping in Granville which is just around the corner.

Room Tip: While we did not see any of the other rooms, our room, Derwen Del, was perfectly adequate with plent...

Green Features: I feel Jeff would be using local produce in his cooking at this time of the year.

We just returned from a two day stay at Welsh Hill Inn. It was a gift from our daughter and her husband for our 50th anniversary. On arrival we were shown to our beautiful room and as a gift to us Bobbi and Jeff presented us with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. It was a wonderful stay. The grounds are lovely;the inn has awesome artwork throughout. It has a heated pool and even a pool house. There were drinks and snacks all day long and wine and cheese in the evening. Scrimptious breakfast both days. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definantly go back for another stay.

Room Tip: We have a king bed at home so we picked the Bedwen Bach King.

We spent our 5th wedding anniversary at the Welsh Hills Inn last year and loved it so much that we returned again this year for our 6th! First of all, the place is beautiful. It sits up on a hill and is surrounding by a gorgeous wooded landscape. The front porch overlooks this magnificent scenery. We enjoy just sitting out on the rocking chairs and relaxing, while sipping wine and sampling cheese during the evening wine and cheese hour. Secondly, the bedrooms are very luxurious and the accommodations are top notch. Even with other guests in the inn, you feel like you are the only couple there. It is very quiet, which provides a nice retreat for any married couple, especially one with 2 toddlers at home. Finally, the breakfast is exquisite. My wife said that the omelet was the best that she has ever had. We live in Columbus and as long as we are here, we plan on making the trip to Granville every year on our anniversary to celebrate the blessing of our marriage. Thanks for everything!

We chose The Welsh Hills Inn for the convenience but were delighted to find that it was all the reviews said it was and so much more. Bobbi and Jeff are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were out of this world and we also enjoyed a private dinner on the porch to celebrate out 35th wedding anniversary. Jeff is an excellent chef! Not only is the setting of the Inn beautiful and serene, the little town of Granville is truly small-town Americana and worth spending a day there. The Inn is tastefully decorated with antiques and art without sacrificing a relaxing atmosphere. Overall, our experience was nothing but positive. A shout-out to Ellie, their Golden Retriever, who was always there to greet us with a smile and a wagging tail.

The weekend went too fast! We were so welcomed and had such a comfortable stay with two truly wonderful hosts, home, and pets. Bobbi and Jeff really made our trip special. The Inn is beautiful, more tastefully decorated than many 5 star hotels. My husband and I are looking forward to our next visit.

My sister and I stayed at The Welsh Hills Inn a few days ago and fell in love with the place. We are only 18 and 21 years old so I wasn't sure what to expect as far as activities and attraction; the inn served as both! From the amazing food to the heated pool and 13 acre grounds, we found an ample supply of relaxation and entertainment. Jeff and Bobbi were so kind and made us feel right at home along with the adorable dog, Ellie. The food was excellent and exceeded our expectations. This was a fantastic trip, we hope to come back in the future.

Our first visit to Welsh Hills Inn was extraordinary. Jeff and Bobbi are the consummate hosts as they cater to every detail of your stay with great precision. They are excellent conversationalists who know just how to find that right balance of sharing with their guests and providing privacy. The home is remarkable with one of the most interesting and eclectic collections of artwork I've ever seen. They truly have "the touch" for decorating in a tasteful way.

The meals (candlelight dinner for two & breakfasts) were perfect! Jeff & Bobbi work in concert to make each meal so very gracious.

We stayed two nights and hardly left the property. The pool was a perfect place to swim and relax. Many more options were available....but sitting by the pool and reading was just what we wanted.

We've traveled extensively and stayed in many B & B's. This was right up there with some of the finest we've experienced. We will most definitely be back!! Everything you see in their website and the reviews you read on Tripadvisor are "spot-on"!!
