While cruzing the web, I found a deal on travelzoo for the Belhurst Castle in Geneva NY. I made reservations without delay. I was able to get the date that we wanted and eagerly looked forward to the trip. Upon arrival, we were not disappointed. The castle was wonderful. Our room # 209 did not have a direct view of Seneca Lake, but it was very impressive. It had a King size bed, and a jacuzzi in the room. The bathroom was large with it's own shower. It had a fireplace in the room, but we enjoyed warm temperatures so we did not get the opportunity to use the fireplace. Part of the deal, was $100 of our cost, as a certificate to spend at Belhurst. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Stonecutter's. Cost was fare, service was good. Later after visiting a few wineries in the area, we returned to the Castle for a nightcap and dessert. The dessert was delicious, but the service was poor. The next day, we enjoyed the lunch buffet in the main dining hall. The food was wonderful but again the service started out great and then started to go downhill rapidly. Our server acted as though she didn't remember that we were even there. Overall, I gave the Castle a high rate, because considering everything... just know going into the restaurant.....DON'T BE IN A HURRY.
