Rooms was small, but clean. Front desk staff was great. Food tray from room service sat outside our room for 36 hours. Had to tell front desk about it three times, before it was removed. Toilet VERY sluggish, required flushing 2-3 times.

We came to Toftrees based on the recommendation of a family member as they knew we needed to get away from all of the stressors at home. We loved our visit. You could do as much or as little as you wanted. From the time we arrived and were greeted by Kevin until we left everyone was fantastic. Our maid even went out of her way to get us tea for our room. We are not coffee drinkers so this small effort made a huge difference to our perception of the hotel and their concern for their guests. The staff pointed out local places to eat and shop. We had room service two nights and the food was excellent.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and will be returning.

Room is clean and the environment is fine, the only problems are the staffs are terribly unfriendly. The don't even look at you or greeting to guests. This is my first time stayed in Toftrees golf resort, and I will never come back anymore. Definitely NOT recommend this hotel to travelers.

My son and I were traveling across the country. We left Washington State heading for NYC! By the time we reached PA we were pretty tired of the same boring hotels just off of I-80. We found Toftrees on the web and it didn't seem to far out of our way. The closer we got the more we knew we'd come to the right place! From check-in with Kevin to the check-out process it was just delightful! I really loved the fact that you can be in the pool, watching tennis and beach volleyball, and see the golfers on the beautiful golf course. There is truly something for the whole family! The adult pool was really nice and the kiddie pool was so great for the kids. Our room was upgraded to a suite w/o even asking! Our suite was amazing. The view out the windows was lovely. The beds were so comfy! I really loved the retro bathrooms and the fact that there was two bathrooms! We enjoyed the happy hour and the buffet breakfast. Very good, fresh food! Can't wait to visit again.

Toftrees hosted my daughter's wedding weekend - a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the Croquet Lawn, cocktail reception outdoors on the overlooking balcony, and the reception inside at Le Papillon. Everything was perfect - every detail attended to. The food was exquisite. Ashley, the wedding coordinator, directed everything like it was a royal wedding. Will, the restaurant manager and after-hours coordinator, kept the wedding guests entertained and safely partying into the wee small hours of the morning. The entire resort staff went out of their way to accommodate all our guests. The golfers in the group raved about the golf course. Guests enjoyed the pool, tennis courts, and running/hiking/biking trails. Many guests also enjoyed exploring all State College has to offer, a mere five minutes away. If you are looking for a destination wedding location in Central Pennsylvania, there is no place better than here. Thank you Toftrees!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: I loved the deluxe rooms with the balconies. The balcony off my room was a little dusty. At my req...

Overall, this hotel was a pleasant surprise in the State College area. Tucked up on the side of a ravine, and bordering a very pretty golf course, it really did feel like a resort. When we checked in and they didn't have two double beds, they automatically upgraded us to a suite! the room was a bit dated, and the beds were 'only' doubles, but the room was clean, well laid out, and quite nice. There was some carry over noise from upstairs, odd for a Wednesday, but it didn't disturb us too much and that isn't the hotel's fault. The next day, after checkout and spending a few hours in the Happy Valley area, I discovered I had left a cherished pair of gold earrings in the room, a gift from my mother. Upon my return, the front desk staff calmly dealt with my fretting and produced the errant earrings.

To a person, the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. The hotel is close to the main highway, to a nice spa, to a great little gastro pub (American Ale House) and a very fast 3 minute drive to all the usual American amenities of big box stores, chain restaurants and coffeehouses, etc.

I will definitely recommend this resort hotel to visitors of mine coming to State College!

Room Tip: Be advised that you do not get to park close to your room, and some of the walking paths to the room...

We stayed here for my son's Jr. PGA golf tournaments. The hotel, restaurants, and golf course are well maintained. The staff is very caring and help to make the stay more enjoyable. The hotel is close to additional shopping and restaurants. It is convenient to main campus as well, but not close to the crowds and noise of downtown and off campus housing.
