Nice hotel in quite neighbourhood.Posted Aug 24, 2015
Pros: Frieldy staff, large comfortable rooms.
Cons: Could clearly hear what was going outside of the room.
I had a great stay at English Inn. Hotel is very nice, staff is friendly. The only problem is sound isolation - you can clearly hear what's going on outside of the room.

25th Anniversary CelebrationPosted Aug 15, 2015
Pros: The ambience and the staff.
Cons: The buildings need a little TLC - they are showing their age.
Location: It was easy to get to and being set away from the road with lots of trees, it was very quiet and seemed to be out in the country.
This was a last minute decision for a quick getaway for our 25th anniversary. We like the photos on the website and decided to go there. We were very pleasantly surprised. The Inn is a beautiful place that reminded us of many places in Europe. We enjoyed the ambience of the buildings and the staff was fantastic. We ordered supper in and they set up a beautiful dining table for us complete with flowers on the table. The room was comfortable and we had access to a nice outside deck. All in all, our mid-week getaway was a big success and we will recommend it to all our friends and family. We were even lucky enough to have the Snow Birds do a flyover while we were there.

Great for an event, not a vacation.Posted Aug 13, 2015
The rooms had lots of character. No central AC, but there was an ocillating fan in each room and a large balcony. The grounds are very well kept and very beautiful. The single person on staff during day time hours did an amazing job at being the housekeeper, bartender, concierge, and front desk all at once. After 11pm, there is no staff to assist. There isn't any food or activities within walking distance. A binder of food options for delivery before 9pm is offered. Transportation to town is about a 20 min taxi ride. This would be a great location for a destination event.

Beautiful house with classic atmosphere. Super nice personnel. Lashes greenery further builds up the atmosphere. Breakfast is continental and could a greatly improved without greater costs but overall a very positive experience.

Historical hotel.Posted Aug 7, 2015
The bed could have been a little softer and the bathroom needs small table or 2 but other than that it was beautiful, historical and the staff was amazing! Very friendly and accomadating! We enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful hotel, Beautiful grounds, no ACPosted Jul 23, 2015
Pros: Architecture Breakfast was very high quality staff was very friendly
Cons: Gardening Air Conditioner
This hotel was gorgeous and situated on a beautiful piece of well tree'd land. We saw a deer wandering through the garden out back and it was filled with swallowtail butterflies, They however really could have done with a gardener as the gardens were overgrown with grass and weeds. The room itself was large and spacious but lacked any sort of air conditioning, and given it was 30+C outside it really could have used it. The room however had windows and curtains which work to help keep the room cool in a pinch.

A Place of Great NostalgiaPosted Jun 1, 2015 on Hotels
If you are looking for a modern up to date facility; forget it. It was built in 1908 and hasn't been restored. It needs up-keep and more maintenance. Having said that, it is full of history, ambiance and old beauty/elegance. The staff are number 1. No restaurant but you can order in full meals and have them served in the dining room. You must ask for a room fridge. The pipes clatter at times. We have stayed in many places in many other countries as well as the US and Canada. We loved it here and will definitely return because of the nostalgia of the entire place and a great place to just relax. The price is also a steal. Do not stay on weekends (we didn't) as they make their money on events and weddings. Not a place for younger people or kids. A must to experience.

TerriblePosted May 26, 2015
The room was dark, humid, smelly and noisy. The floor was hardwood and too noisy! They need to fix this. Most terrible part was the breakfast! Literally nothing was good about the breakfast. The hot water for tea/coffee was cold! Imagine the rest... Don't go here people

DisappointingPosted May 24, 2015 on Hotels
Old building, beautiful setting. Could use more gardening staff. Two nights, mysterious, random phone rings at all hours was disturbing. Staff was attentive & helpful, but we probably would choose to stay elsewhere next time.
