This was our third stay at the Georgian Inn and we have not yet been disappointed. The staff is attentive and helpful. The rooms are clean and well kept. While the Inn shows it age, that just enhances it's character. Dinner is always excellent. From the white glove service to the perfectly prepared meals there isn't much to find fault with. Try the blue cheese raviolis, they are to die for. I do have to say the server on this occasion didn't really have a command of the menu, and worse she reeked of cigarette smoke. Fortunately she didn't spend much time at our table. Our other issue was the heat control for our room. It was 85 when we arrived and the staff bought it down to 70 but it spiked up again in the middle of the night. Fortunately the owner Chuck was on hand and able to bring it back down quickly.

We stopped in Somerset on our way to the East Coast and were delighted. When we tried to check in, there was no record of our reservation, but it turned out to be my own fault! We were a day early! They made arrangements for us to stay in a lovely room with delicious flannel sheets. Quite a nice stay overall. Dinner was a bit of a disappointment - minimal wine list, oysters were frozen (even when replaced - having been heated - there was a lump of ice in each). The white-gloved service was nice, but we would have preferred a bit more attention to the meal instead of the serving.

One of the earlier reviews said this was the best place on the penn turnpike. We agree. Had a delicious meal with excellent service. Highly recommend.

You would expect white glove service at dinner; but also at breakfast. Our name was in a picture frame at our table as well as personalized menus. The staff were wonderful. I had sent a list of food allergies and the server made a point of telling me what was available to me. The meal started with a little treat from the chef and included sorbet to cleanse the palate between courses and a small dark chocolate cup with white chocolate mousse. What the staff may lack in experience they make up in spirit.

Our only recommendation is to have one sound system playing. There was classical music in the dining room and right next door competing jazz from the Tapas room.

This place reeks of graciousness and elegance. The old mansion has been beautifully restored. We had dinner in a small and quiet room with a handful of tables. Since we'd made reservations, we found our name (in a little picture frame) on the table which was waiting for us, and our menus had our names on them. The food was excellent - my scallops with maple sauce was outstanding. Wine list was good, about what you might expect from a place like this. The choices of Scotch from the bar was limited. The manager was hovering about, checking with us, and the waitress was warm and attentive. The only fly in the ointment was her training - they must have recruited her from a coffee shop. "How is that working for ya?" was her way of checking on us. We asked for our Scotch "neat" and it was served in a glass chilled in a freezer - unthinkable! When she served the wine, she had already set the cork puller in the cork - it was brought to our table that way. She pulled the cork without removing the aluminum cover, and poured our wine through the torn aluminum, and she did just that - she did not offer me a taste (for approval) before pouring. All in all, we had a memorable dinner.
