This is a great property that we have stayed at before under different management. We still loved the property this time but felt "warmth" was very lacking from some details. We are used to an unlimited cocktail hour and here it was "one drink only" and then it was charged to your room. Would it be so difficult to spot us some beers for the amount we are paying? It just seemed petty. We are also used to warm cookies, a snifter of port left out, etc. and none of that was done here. No little extras that make you feel special and valued as guests. We were also charged for a bottle of water we requested for a bike ride. We weren't told it was extra and again it just seemed a bit petty. I think the current owners are trying but need to turn up the warmth factor to get return business. We want to feel like beloved friends in your home not worry about how little details may show up on our bill. Good but could be so much better. Let's hope they get there.

Room Tip: We love the Wells Suite, #1. It is on the end and feels intimate and quiet. It has a whirlpool tub...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. While you loved the Wells King Suite we are sorry you felt we did not meet your expectations and see the value you were getting. We are very green and have a water cooler for guests to fill there water bottles that are complimentary in there room along with fresh baked cookies upon check-in. You can fill up and stay hydrated has much as you want for free. We encourage our guests to recycle there water bottles as you mentioned with our green promotion cards in the room. Our social hour is for our guests to come together an enjoy our full spirits, wine & beer a rare find in any B&B with a full liquor license. We offer one complimentary glass of beer or wine of your choice. We can be open to the public but choose not to so our guests have privacy and can enjoy an intimate experience. I don't know of any B&B, hotel or luxury resort that offers a full open bar for there social hour. We offer free Wi-Fi, free bicycles, free beach chairs & beach gear as well as two fishing polls, free parking, free HBO & Cinamax and a three course breakfast, warm scented lavender towels, everyone receives fresh baked warm sticky buns, then five appetizers to choose from plus 6 entrees including a Fritatta of the day, free french press coffee, plus free Kuerig coffee, one on each floor for your convenience and free snacks all day and night. There is no resort fee for our heated pool, & spa, chaise covers or towels, a fee you will see daily at any luxury resort. No paperwork to fill out if you take a towel. There was no additional charge for your early check-in request.

At The Hoyt House Inn we try not to be too intrusive with our guests time. It is your time to rest and relax and enjoy all that Amelia Island and the mansion has to offer. We appreciate your review and do look forward to seeing you again.

Hoyt House B & B on Amelia Island was ideally located within easy walking distance to exquisite restaurants and quaint shops. The onsite pool and hot tub were an unexpected bonus allowing us to relax onsite or take an equally relaxing stroll to downtown shops.

The Inn keepers were wonderful providing every accommodation we might need including a three course gourmet breakfast, evening drinks and bikes and beach gear.

The Atlantic ocean is minutes away as are historic tours, sprawling beaches, and fishing charters. If you are looking to get a way and relax Debra and Myrta will do all in their power to ensure you do.

Room Tip: Every room is lovely. The master was perfect for us with a walk out sitting porch to enjoy.

The Hoyt House is a beautiful B&B where our stay was especially extraordinary due to the efforts of the Innkeepers, Myrta and Deborah, tending to every detail to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Gourmet breakfast every day, advice on things to do, loaner bicycles & chairs for the beach, beautifully landscaped and maintained heated pool and hot tub, early evening bar where we shared stories with the Innkeepers and other guests. The room was not only comfortable and quiet but contained everything we needed for our stay. The extraordinary quality always topnotch during the week we were there.

Room Tip: Discuss your needs with Myrta. She will give you the best guidance for which room to select.

We chose the Hoyt House via their Internet site for our week's vacation on Amelia Island. We needed some R&R and warm sunshine after NJ's snow ridden winter. What we got was an Inn that exceeded our every fantasy expectations! Inn is beautiful, pool and hot tub relaxing, breakfast is gourmet professional and the Inn Keepers, Myrta and Deborah gave us just the right amount of privacy and yet, just the right amount of warm and friendly conversation. Don't go without spending quality time chilling out on the front porch. Perfect in my opinion..

We enjoyed our stay in this B & B on our trip back home from Florida's Gulf Coast. Myrta and Deborah put together a delicious gourmet breakfast. Their home has a beautiful garden with a well maintained pool and hot tub. It is located in the downtown area with easy access to top local cuisine. They also provided bikes for an easy ride to the beach. We look forward to our next visit.

Everything about Hoyt House is top notch. The extra effort the innkeepers go to make your stay comfortable is really noticed. I would have to say it is the best we have stayed in and we are pretty seasoned B&B visitors. Highly recommend!!!!
