We chose the Simsbury Inn this weekend for several reasons: 1) it was close to our daughter's house in Avon, 2) we wanted something different from a chain hotel, and 3) we needed a hotel that allowed dogs. We were impressed by everyone that worked at this hotel. They acted more like concerned owners than paid employees, even asking if we needed dog food for our labradoodle,
The lobby was attractive and functional and the very large sitting area to the right of the lobby was a perfect gathering place with sofas, wing chairs, and a roaring fire. Coffee and tea was always available and juices and breakfast pastries were set out in the morning. It was a treat to walk around the pine tree ringed perimeter of the property each morning on our doggie walks. There was plenty of parking. The indoor pool looked inviting but we didn't have time to use it. We also didn't have a chance to eat at their restaurants because we were only there for two days and already had reservations at Old Avon Farms and were taken to other restaurants by DD and family.
The room and bath were average but clean. DH thought the bed was too hard but I thought it was fine. There was no HBO but there was free wifi and there was a nice little sitting area. An assortment of Bath 'n Bodyworks toiletries were provided and it was appreciated.
We will definitely return to the Simsbury Inn.
