Sophisticated, New England style hotelPosted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: quaint, New England style with awesome amenities.
Location: I was there on business so wouldn't know what there is for families.... was in a somewhat rural area, but local restaurants are pretty good...
Beautiful room, great restaurant, nice staff... will definitely stay again!

Great place to stay with kids when its 0 out......Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: location, Pool, nice room, Clean.
Cons: The Gym is a bit dated and one of the treadmills was not working.
Location: Joe's Pizza, couple of miles on route 10, extremely good staff and great food. Popovers, same area great food but small, if packed consider takeout.
Checkin during a major winter storm was simple and efficient. The parking lots were plowed and driveway manageable. The Pool was warm and clean and the kids were occupied. Throughout our stay the staff was very pleasant and treated us well.

A Fairy Tale InnPosted Feb 2, 2015
Pros: The entire hotel. I enjoyed the room with two ample Queen size wood sleigh beds dressed with soft down white comforters. Spacious and comfy rooms.
Cons: This place is just right. No need for any improvements. The hotel owners should keep it the way it is now.
Location: The location is very quiet, but the little town is just there with lots of local stores to explore. The University of Hartford is about 3 miles away.
Our party of four felt like if we were staying in a Fairy Tale hotel close to the city, but far away from all. Simsbury is a small quaint town near Farmington, West Hartford, Connecticut. The inn sits in a historical site. The amenities are fine. The pool was clean and eye pleasing. The amenities in the gym and changing room were just right. Plenty of shampoo and conditioner. Towels were available. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We all felt welcomed. The quality of the food was superb. We had breakfast in the small cafeteria/restaurant and the chef who was preparing it, knew his trade very well. The flavor of the dishes were delicious. Everything was fresh. The prices were reasonable. The lobby boasts a quiet sitting/reading area with books, newspapers and board games. You sit in front of an elegant stone fireplace that makes you feel at home. I recommend this inn and I will visit it again.

Nostalgia for a new gem.Posted Dec 19, 2014 on Hotels
A very pleasant stay in a very pleasant setting. I last stayed a couple of decades or so when the hotel first opened. I was pleased to see that it has been well maintained.

Convinient and nicePosted Nov 2, 2014 on Hotels
Great stay at a hotel that has seen better days but all is nice and clean. Good service and the resturant and bar was OK. The breakfast cafe in the lobby was money well spent!
