Huge let down and a waste

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 4, 2010

I would never recommend this place to anyone and will never go back. We arrived thinking we were in for a treat, but were sadly mistaken. I'd read good reviews about Eggs Benedict (my hubbies fave).

There were some good things about the inn as described in other reviews; nice location, attractive landscaping, and it is a quiet place. The king bed was comfortable even if the bedding is getting a little shabby. We stayed two nights in one of the expensive suites which was a little worn out and tired; faded posters and dusty-looking fake flower arrangements, but it was clean.

The first morning coffee was 20 min late so we had to wait around for our morning dose. I was looking forward to a scrumptious breakfast, but we were served a huge individual bowl of a too-sweet, baked souffle concoction. No fresh fruit compote or meat on the side. We did get some boxed orange juice. No other choices of food (we saw bananas getting over ripe in the kitchen and melon in the frige, but did not get offered any fruit!)

The next morning there was nothing for us. I was told when making the res on the phone that since we could not be there for breakfast muffins and hardboiled eggs or "something" would be left out for us. Well, that didn't happen, but since the giant plastic-wrapped package of prepared croissants stacked on the kitchen counter had mold on them I guess we were better off skipping that. There was a big flat of muffins in the frige, but they looked like they were from Costco (whoopie) not homemade.

The refreshments advertised on the web page were a few sodas and a bottled water in the downstairs refrigerator.

If a place isn't really going to do the high class B&B hospitality thing then it should quit pretending to be, as it is it just seems to be riding on the fact that the house was once built and lived in by a prominent family.
