“A pleasure to be there...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights with family while visiting Charlottesville area. The resort is within a 10-15 minute drive to "downtown" and Monticello. Overall the place is fantastic. The really good things were the room (especially the bathroom and great shower), the relaxing infinity pool, more than adequate work-out room, the breakfast food (but very expensive), the friendly and helpful staff, and most of all the early coffee cart (6:30 I think) that you can enjoy in very pleasant surroundings. My kids really liked the pool table at night. Hard to find something bad to say, but the one that stands out is the cheesy snacks in the hotel room that are typical overpriced (read: rip-off) shlock that one should only find in hotels of lesser caliber (or how about not at all?). It's really disappointing to arrive in a beautiful resort and magnificent room and then see the basket of peanuts for $12 or bottled water for $7 (I'm just approximating). Am I naive?? Do people actually like this stuff? Anyway, point made. Oh, and the dogs! Some guests have them and they occasionally bark, a lot, in the rooms. Overall this place is a pleasure and I can't wait to go back.

We visited Keswick for the first time about seven years ago and finally got a chance to return. It is still as lovely as I remembered. We enjoyed all of our three day stay from breakfast and lunch on the veranda to dinner in the dining room with spectacular views. The pool is relaxing as is the outdoor patio in the evening. A perfect place to relax, unwind and pamper yourself.

I loved almost everything about Keswick Hall, from the beautiful colonial-style room to the luxurious bed to the view of the gardens and golf course from the windows to the think slippers provided to the carafe of water thoughtfully placed on the dresser. The property is large enough for me to do a 10-mile run one morning while seeing deers, hares, and the hotel's hound dogs out in nature. Yet it has an intimate feel thanks to the excellent customer service of the staff. I definitely would like to return here.

Inn is wonderful with plenty of activities. Front office staff is great too. Room was lovely and food was memorable in the restaurant and bar.

Service in the restaurant needs work. Sean was an exception--excellent bartender and waiter as was the Brazilian woman whose name I did not get. Maid service spotty--Inn needs more help all around.

Expect that most of the Inn will be filled with big groups, companies, weddings etc. As such, some of the activities like the infinity pool will not be available to individual guests. Also, there will be few people to meet outside of the club members who use the facilities. For us, that turned out fine as we met some wonderful locals who gave us tips on where to go in the area.

We stayed at Keswick this past weekend enroute from Charleston, SC to CT so that we could break up the drive and visit Monticello as well. We had our 2-year old Black Lab with us so we needed a pet-friendly hotel. We could not have been more pleased. Spectacular hotel with equally spectacular accommodations, even for our dog (the hotel is very pet-friendly, for example, with water bowls conveniently placed throughout the grounds). The grounds and vistas are incredible, and we had an incredible dinner at Fossett's - a true gourmet experience. My only regret is that I didn't play the Arnold Palmer golf course. We'll leave that for the next time!!

Wonderful memories of our 6 night stay at Keswick with our two sons in early August. The dinners we had on the terrace and the breakfasts at Fossets were, dare I say, flawless. Great Virginia inspired menu and excellent service. However what really sold us on this resort was the kids club (golf and tennis), great golf lessons for the adults with Bubba, and the stunning landscaping of the property. It has a huge range of facilities for such a small hotel of 40 odd rooms. Don't expect a mini fridge or safe in your room, it's not Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons. The main wing of the building is an old house. It's not a custom built resort so the rooms are quirky, with antique furniture - that's part of the charm. For us it was unique and reminded us of hotels we've stayed at in Tuscany and England. It is expensive but we loved every minute of it and really missed it after we left. All our fears about Virginia heat during August turned out to be a non-issue. ps visit the Blue Ridge and Devils Backbone brewery when you stay.
