My wife is a fan of The Shining and i am a fan of Dumb and Dumber so we decided to spent a night at The Stanley. Initially, my wife was a little disappointed to find the hotel in an not-so remote, secluded location. ( there is a mcdonalds within 200m )
However the hotel has a beautiful historic feel and rooms were comfortable and clean. However we found our room to be a little too warm and we couldn't change the thermostat.
We loved the restaurant and had quite possibly the best steak ever! The service was awesome and we loved chatting to the bartender while having some drinks.
One thing to note is to book ahead for the Ghost Tours. We arrived around 4pm but all the tours for that night were booked out.
It's pretty cool that The Shining is playing on constant repeat on one of the tv channels - would be cool to be able to watch Dumb and Dumber too.
