We booked this hotel online 'special' and it was awful. The room was dirty, the common areas smelled terrible and the pools were small and crowded. To top it all off, the 'Pointe' where we stayed was really a motor lodge type motel - right on a main road. We did look at switching into a Castle room - they were somewhat better than the Pointe but still not what I expected from the website. We asked the front desk for information about nearby movies and they were NOT helpful - pointed us to a newspaper in the foyer that was from February .... shabby, depressing, not a good place for a romantic weekend.
Appearances can be deceiving. We booked their $* internet special. We saw the pictures of the mansion and thought that our accommodations would be similar in style. \n \nWhat we got was a 1/3 condo, 2 twin beds butted up to each other, 1/2 shower (large enough for a midget), maid service who only brought new towels, etc. You get the picture. \n \nWas up here for our anniversary, made dinner reservations only to be told busload of tourists were to be in at 6 pm and no one can be there at that time. We changed our plans and made dinner reservations at the Inn at Weathersfield. (BTW Great food, superb atmosphere) \n \nMeanwhile, the mansion's food was so-so. Not the best I had, nor the worst. \n \nBottle of champagne and chocolates was nice touch, but totally out of character for room quality. \n \nSo the question is would I stay back here in the condo...NO! \n \nThe mansion would be nice, except for the fact that there are nicer places to stay for the money. \n
I thought it was a delightful place. Good food, interesting accomodations in a lovely old home that has been well preserved. Care was given to maintaining the original architecture and charm. Food was good and staff was very attentive. Pricey, but that's the way it is with nice places. The absence of an elavator makes the need for a bellman important.
Excellent facility....quite charming and luxurious!
booked on Kayak since rate was $100 per night cheaper than going direct to Equinox. arrived late on wednesday night (8:30 PM) and went right to room to settle in since we were getting up early to ski at Stratton on Thursday. Left at 7:30 am for stratton and came back to hit hot tub and realx for the night. Oops hot tub broken and pool occupied by a few familys with kids running around wildly and jumoing into the pool. We tried to book massages instead, but only one time was available so I let my daughter take it. I went and got cleaned up and relaxed in room until she was done. We went to dinner and called it a night. Checked out around 8:15 on friday morning to ski and then head back to Ct. When we checked out I asked about the $35 per day resort fee since the hot tub was broken and was credited for one day (I guess that was fair) but we had no other time to use the facilities and still paid this fee. I would rather they put all charges in their rates instead of nickel and dime add on's that you are required/expected to pay.
Great atmosphere. Comfortable, very good staff. Locate in the middle of a terrific town. Restaurant has city prices but was excellent and worth it. Reasonably close to Bromley and Stratton so a great ski hotel. This was our second stay and we will likely go back again.
Thank you so much. Had a great time
The friendly, informative and helpful staff were wonderful to deal with. The property is beautiful and there is something for everyone. Had a delicious meal on site at the Marsh Restaurant. Very relaxed and can't wait to go back! Lighting in the guest room, especially near the sink mirror, was not bright enough. Slight musty smell in a couple of the sitting areas..
