We spent a Saturday night at the Elms to clebrate my husband's birthday. We had stayed here with friends 25 years ago. The renovated hotel was beautiful and retained charm but was modernized. We had dinner at eighty eight and it was very nice. Staff very accommodating.

I stayed here with my wife and 2 daughters in May after they got out of college. We were looking for a relaxing place to enjoy some time as a family. It was exactly right. It was clean, modern, rooms are spacious and comfortable, and it is very clasic. The grotto in the spa was really nice, clean with a...
