“Pricey but great location!”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We booked this location as we attended a wedding reception directly across the street. The Herrington had a good amount of difficulty getting the reservations for the wedding block set up and we had to confirm and fix reservations and number of times but in the end the hotel figured it out. Rooms were a little on the high side for what we got but the location couldn't be beat for us. Night time cookies and milk were a very nice touch. Balconies had an excellent view of the review and a beautiful courtyard for our room.

Thank you for your review and feedback.

Our mission at The Herrington Inn & Spa is always to exceed our guest’s expectations. It is very disappointing to hear that we did not live up to this promise during your stay with us.

I apologize for the difficulties you experienced during the reservation process. I trust this did not create any inconvenience on the special day. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the Hotel should you wish to discuss the matter.

Thank you once again, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Herrington Inn & Spa very soon.

Kindest Regards,
Stewart

Every one of the staff I'd encounter asked me how my day was going and if there was anything I needed. It's rare that you get this level of customer service. They gave us a ride to and from dinner but you can also walk to many restaurants and shops. We had a 1st floor room with a great view of the river, which is literally a few yards from your balcony. The cookies and milk of course are a nice touch. We'd definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed the delicious milk and cookies in the evening by our fireplace in our white robes in the room. The decorations can be a bit old fashioned, but the bathrooms are definitely luxuriously modern. Delicious breakfast of fruit, cheese, cured meats, tea, and coffee. The breakfast reminded us of our stays in Mexico. A stroll in island park after breakfast and along the river was the perfect way to end the stay.

I'm writing this as I sit on my balcony enjoying the beautiful Fox River. The staff here are so friendly, they treat each guest like a VIP. The room was cozy and relaxing. We ordered a bath basket from the spa which was a wonderful in-room way to feel pampered. We did have breakfast at Atwater's. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and attentive. We plan on coming here again. This is a wonderful place to get away from everyday life.

For the past two years I travelled on business to Geneva, staying at this charming hotel. This past trip, booked for pleasure 3 day weekend really disappointed. I booked a premium, river south facing room. I was given a corner room "118" on the back of the hotel, overlooking the parking lot and the private home next door. There is a bit of river view from a corner window. In addition, two large exhaust fans are outside my parking lot windows. I called the front deck and was informed despite the price I was placed in the correct room category. No offer to change despite my repeated dissatisfaction with the room. As I loyal, repeat customer I'm baffled. This hotel let me down.

Not only does this stately old colonial manor look good, it delivers! Our room was large, beautiful decorated with old fashioned lamps and an enormously high four poster bed that needed steps to get up to it. Everything was tastefully decorated, from light fittings to a real-fire that you switched on, and whirlpool bath even the toiletries smelt divine. We had a small balcony that overlooked the river, with tables and chairs outside. I had the best sleep ever in the snuggliest bed ever. But for me the delightful touch of homemade cookies and cream, left at the side of the bed, nearly made me cry with joy! The breakfast was buffet style but was more than adequate, the eggs were so fresh and tasty with lashing of coffee.
Attentive and caring staff, drove us to the station and into town the night before. One of the best hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in!

Room Tip: River facing rooms have a view to die for!

Although I am local to this hotel, we chose to have our company planning meeting here recently. Since there would only be 6 of us, we had the meeting in my suite. WOW. Upon check-in, the room (my suite) was completely prepped for the meeting the next day. All they had to do was bring in coffee, juice, and breads in the morning. Power, video, EVERYTHING was ready to go. During the meeting, Ian and his team took incredible care of us and stayed out of our way as much as possible. We left for dinner at 6:45PM and I expected to come back to the room the way we had left it. Alas, when I returned to the room at 10PM, it was back to a normal suite - everything put back in its place, the meeting table removed, the room cleaned and the fireplace turned on. It was an amazing transformation from the perfect meeting room to the perfect hotel room. WOW. Everything about this stay was perfect - The room (everything worked and it was very new), the food (had it catered in for lunch from Atwaters), and of course the service (which was above the top). I think staying in this resort is wonderful but having a meeting there might even be better!

Room Tip: Loved the suite overlooking the river.
