Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was unique, I did not explore as much as I wanted as I do not do well with stairs. But they did have a wheelchair ramp to the front door & one cottage with two separate areas which is where I stayed. I knew of the property when growing up in Kalamazoo in the 60’s - 80’s, so it was a nice gift to myself to stay here. So whether you are from the area or not & you want to stay in a beautiful home built in the 1800’s with all that charm with modern conveniences but not to many to ruin the ambience. I highly recommend you stay at the Henderson Castle for just a weekend or for that special occasion, you will not be disappointed!

My room was outstanding except for 2 safety issues. The tiny bench to stand on to get into bed, would have a hard time being smaller. The bathtub needed a support rail, because it was high off the ground and falling was easy. I did fall getting out of bed, but just scabs and black and blue. I won’t be returning.

The policies are really strict and a bit frustrating. Also, one of the main attractions, the roof top deck & hot tub, is totally off limits if someone decides they want a massage. Consequently, my wife and I only got a couple minutes in the hot tub the whole trip. Don’t count on bringing anything you want to eat or drink, otherwise you’ll face a steep fine from The castle. That’s just one example of possible up-charges. You’ll find posted signs saying if you do this or that, expect upwards of a thousand dollars charged to your card. We ordered a vegan breakfast for the following morning which was pretty decent, if not a little bland. Can’t say for the non-veg options, but expect some sticker shock. Dinner dishes are roughly $35+ a plate. We had a mix of quality in staff we encountered. The middle aged heavyset bartender we had was a straight up creep, and left-handedly hit on women in front of their husbands. It’s a bummer, because the barroom is truly an incredible little place, and we didn’t care to stay more than the one drink we had. We tried to cash out, but the bartender disappeared for 20mins at a time to make cheese & cracker plates I guess? Most of the other staff were really sweet & easy going. The Tibetan room we stayed in was pretty large & comfy, but peeking into some of the other open rooms, a few seem pretty claustrophobic, so book carefully. Also, I had to force the castle to give us the price guaranteed here on Hotels.

This property was misrepresented. It is nothing but a large run down house with leaky ceilings and faulty wiring. There were extension chords run across my metal headboard. The pipes and ceiling leaked in the bathroom. The grounds were all dug up. There was no wine tour. The rooftop spa area had old plastic wicker furniture without enough cushions. The place was so bad that I left in the middle of the night on my second night. The owner said that he would refund my money for that night and the next, but he didn't.

The description and photos of this property are misleading. The room description clearly said air conditioning, but my room had none, not even a fan. It was 80 degrees outside. The website says the bar is open at 4. We weren’t able to get drinks until 5:30 because the bartender didn’t show up until then. The wine was open and the bottle was dusty. It was stale and undrinkable. At night, my room was sweltering. I called the front desk. Now answer. Apparently the staff is completely gone at 10pm. I couldn’t stay there for three nights. I had to find another hotel at 11pm. Someone called me the next morning and I told the the situation. I demanded a refund. They told me the owner would call me. I haven’t heard from them 3 days later. Even Orbitz can’t get a response from them.
