The Wake Robin Inn is an amazing find among the hundreds of other Bed and breakfast/Guesthouse styled accommodation in the New England district! I was looking for a special place to spoil a touring school trip from Australia of which I was in charge and I happened upon the Wake Robin Inn website. The replied immediately with all the extra information that I requested. They facilitated payment in a easy manner. They kept in contact until the very week of our arrival at this incredible property. The building speaks for itself, "classic old world charm" in a delightful setting. The property has been woderfully renovated but has retained the mystery and allure of yester-year! However, and most importantly, I felt that we were booking into a family home. The receptionnist did everything to ease our arrival, even going out of her way to find us a local restaurant to accommodate 7 at 8pm on a week night - no easy task! The rooms were impeccable and large and fitted the image that we had expected of a "country house retreat". The were elegant and full of style and history. The entire stay was an adventure! One of the owners Shaffin greeted us personally the next day and made us feel as if we were the only guests at the Wake Robin Inn, such was his attentive nature. I am certain he is the same with everyone. He is the consumate hotelier. A master of his craft. We left the Wake Robin Inn wanting to return the following weekend and treat ourselves again to the spoiloing delights of the establishment. However this is not possilble since we live in Australia, but the Wake Robin Inn WILL be on my intinerary the next tine I travel. I will even go out of my way to adjust my travel plans to make certain I can spend a couplke of nights amidst such welcoming company. I recommend people to plan to stay at the Wake Robin Inn before the year is out!
