“Our daughters wedding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

The wedding was absolutely perfect. They catered to our every need and the wedding coordinator and staff were exceptional. The food was some of the best I have ever eaten. The room, however, was another matter. The front of the sink in the bathroom was coming apart. The lamps in the room were all wobbly and the shades had cracks and holes in them. The desk was all scratched up and had the finish missing. My daughters wedding was beautiful but the room left alot to be desired.

Room Tip: Be careful when you turn on lights, they need new ones.

I spent two nights at this hotel while on a business trip. Many things about the inn were charming: it's location overlooking the river, the small history exhibit in the lobby, the cookies by the reception desk, the overall decor, and the very good food served in the adjoining restaurant.

The main part of the room was standard with a comfortable bed. But the bathroom had not been cleaned and there was plenty of evidence of the previous occupant. Even after I called reception to complain and housekeeping came by to re-clean, it was obvious that the room hadn't been properly swept. Too bad, because otherwise hotel has a lot to recommend it. The fact that the bathroom wasn't clean made me wonder where else the hotel cuts corners.

We had our wedding in the ballroom in May 2010 (not long after the ballroom was completely redone.) They could not have been nicer during the process. There was a scheduling mix-up that resulted in us having to change the wedding day (discovered 10 months before the wedding, so few things were booked yet) and we had Angelo himself apologizing to us and trying to make it right. (They did - we got tons of extras added to our package for free and it all ended up working out fine). Our ceremony was in the lobby by the fireplace and the reception was in the ballroom (and the after party in the pub downstairs - one should always drink pints of guinness in one's wedding dress). The staff was fantastic, especially our handler (or whatever they want to call the personal server assigned to the bride and groom), Maki. Extra food and desserts were packed up and set up in our room just in case we didn't get a chance to eat. They also run the wedding receptions well so it doesn't feel like there is a ton of downtime while people are eating. Would recommend a wedding there to anyone (especially because it is one of the cheaper places in the area and a great value). Our wedding was the third wedding we've attended there. All have been great.

We've been to dinner at Tavolo multiple times and have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. It is a small place and gets full. The table-side pulled mozzarella dishes are amusing and tasty. My husband could live on the 7 hour cherry pepper pork. Servers are always very friendly.

We've also been to the mother's day brunch once (this past year). Good experience. Would go again. Only complaint - they try to cram as many tables as possible in so it can be a little bit of a tight fit. Our group was on one of the edge tables near the servers' door, so there was always traffic behind our chairs (I'm one of those people that doesn't really like people walking behind my chair and will always choose the corner when possible).

We've stayed in the inn three times. Once for a wedding in 2006 - stayed in the corner room 211). Comfy bed, nice room. For our wedding and then for our first anniversary, we stayed in the Sanders suite. It is upstairs and is the larger of the 2 suites. The jetted tub in the bedroom, a huge bed, a dining table, a couch, a nice bathroom with a big shower (and they actually give you shampoo AND conditioner) and a fireplace in the living room. I got ready in the room before the wedding and there was plenty of space for everyone. The room also has a large balcony overlooking the river with a table and chairs and a loveseat/chair patio set. We spent a large part of our anniversary stay sitting out there looking at the river. Very relaxing.

This was my second stay here. The first time I was in the main hotel which was okay. This time I was put in one of the adjoining apartments, which they use for overflow when they're busy. It was disgusting. The hallway smelled. After the receptionist sent me to the room twice, with two different keys which failed to open the door, she tried unsuccessfully herself. A third key worked, and the room smelled even worse than the hallway. Items belonging to a previous visitor were still in the room. It was filthy. I returned the key and moved to another hotel. If you're going to stay here, make sure you are in the main hotel and not in the adjoining apartments.

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of a family wedding. The reception was held at this hotel. The venue itself is beautiful...grounds picture perfect, interior very nice. I have to say this was the best wedding food I have ever eaten.
Sadly, hurricane Irene decided to visit the area Sunday morning. When the power went out, I was very disappointed to see such an unorganized and dangerous response. The was no emergency lighting in the stairway or the dark hotel hallway. Candles were placed in these areas. Yes, un-monitored open flames. The staff did not know where the emergency elevator key was, leaving the poor girl inside the elevator trapped for over an hour. I realize that this is not an everyday occurance, but certainly some safety code was violated. The storm had just begun...we weren't dealing w/ floods at that time.
The furnishings in our room was nothing special, even worn in appearance.
I'd not hesitate in recommending this as a place to hold a special event. However, if drinking and driving isn't a concern, there are other hotels in the area that may provide more value for your travel dollar.
