just ok, not worth the money

Posted Jul 15, 2014
It's so expensive to stay here and I didn't feel like it was worth it. The grounds are beautiful and so is the building itself, but the hotel is just okay. The check in process was quick and easy but our room had a random fridge in front of it. Then when we walked in it just felt a little dated and not worth the expensive price. The pool was nice but a little dirty. Would be nice to have a bar outside that is actually open or some music. However I would recommend to someone who wants to have a nice night away, its definitely more interesting of a hotel vs. regular chains in the area.

Nice Hotel on the Gold Coast

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: The wonderful grounds of the hotel are its absolute plus
Cons: Even though it is listed on the hotel' s site as an amenity, complimentary transportation is only there on a 'subject to availibility' - basis.
Location: It's a nice spot to explore the old Gold Coast heritage, but one must have a personal car to do so.
We had a lovely relaxing stay at this hotel. Its plusses are comfortable rooms and lush, gorgeous grounds; plus a nice location on the Gold Coast not too far from the city. The hotel also has a lot of amenities on the grounds, two swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball, hiking etc. All this comfort comes at ca. half the price of an average cramped motel room in the Hamptons, so it certainly feels like a worthwile deal in the high season! Some of the downsides are the fact that the hotel hosts a lot of weddings, (three during our three night stay), and this comes with unavoidable extra noise, plus a feeling that 'other' hotel guests are somehow second-tier, as all the attention of staff, plus e.g. the use of the restaurant, will be reserved for the wedding party. There is also some wear-and-tear on the rooms and amenities, and staff could have been a bit more friendly / helpful (see issues with priority for weddings above).

nice hotel for the fans of old styles

Posted Apr 3, 2014
Pros: style, rooms, area around
Cons: gym was closed for cleaning for 2 hours
everything was great, but the location of rooms is far away from main lobby and parking spots - so be ready to walk

Pros: the Mansion was very interesting,
Cons: new carpets
although the place is a bit dated it is very clean, the staff is great. Was a mansion built in the early 1900's. very cool history. would love to see the grounds in the summer. I would go back and stay again.

Very nice stay

Posted Jan 3, 2014
Pros: The swimming pool, exercise rooms, handball court, tennis, and other activities are really nice here.
Location: Sea cliff bagel cafe was a short drive away. Great food at a good price, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
We love staying here. This was the third or fourth time for us. Charming place with beautiful grounds. Comfortable rooms. Reasonably priced. Close to the train station, so it's easy to go into Manhattan to Penn station and back.
