We spent 5 nights at the Shalimar Resort in New Hampshire in August, 2012. Went for Soulfest, a 4 days concert held at Gunstock Mtn.
First impression of the room was that it was old. It looked like something from the 50's. They may have painted recently, but they painted over the old nicks and bumps in the walls. The bathroom was no better. The edges of the floor and the corners were gross. The window air conditioner was noisy and took a long time to cool the room. The dark bedspread was hiding what? The underside was very dirty so I hate to imagine what was on the top side.
The employees were very helpful, both the house cleaners and the restaurant staff. My only complaint there was that our room was apparently forgotten to have been cleaned one day. All our dirty towels were on the floor in the bathroom where we left them and the bed was not made. Luckily, even though it was evening, one of the house cleaners was down the hall and she was very accommodating in getting us clean towels.
Since this is ski country in the winter, they have a huge indoor pool and spa tub. Very nice after a hot, sticky day outside.
On the positive side, included with our room were dinner coupons for every night of our stay. Granted, they had a special "house guest" menu, but we found the food on that menu to be very good. We did order twin lobsters off the regular menu so we had to pay for that. It was well worth it. Wednesday is all you can eat pasta...that too, was no charge. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The other was the Sunday brunch. Along with the free dinner coupons, we also got a $10.00 off coupon for two Sunday brunches. There was an omlet station as well as various hot foods: eggs benedict, home fries, scrambled eggs, American chop suey, bacon, sausage. All the usual buffet items as well as various fruits and pastries.
They advertise Wi Fi, but it was very spotty, if not non-existant. Don't count on doing any internet work from there.
I would stay there again if the bedspread had been clean. Silly, maybe, but it was gross.
