“Good standard hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in June 2012. The setting of the hotel is not it's best feature. It is somewhat isolated but convenient for the highway and so I did not go out for the two days I stayed there (and also it was about 40C!!).

Check in staff were not too friendly although the rooms were fine and standard US hotel rooms so everything was adequate there. Internet was free which is great.

I had a 2 day meeting at the hotel and the conference facilities were good and the staff were fantastic. See if you can find Joe and Nicole - great team!!

The food is good without being outstanding (with the exception of Amanda's pancakes!) although choice is a little limited. I wouldnt want to stay in the hotel for much longer than a couple of days otherwise it could get a bit repetitive. The restaurant staff are great though.

In summary a good business hotel for short stays

Very comfortable beds, quiet, clean. It was so nice to have free WiFi. The breakfast buffet(not included in room price) was extensive and delicious and fairly priced.

What a lovely surprise! The service was impeccable and the room was so comfortable, with a leafy view on the surrounding grounds. Room 223 has nice corner windows and lots of light. The buffet brunch was over the top, a great variety of delicious food. Can't forget to mention the glass shower with adjustable shower head and strong water pressure, a little detail so many hotels overlook. I will definitely be back!

I was at Basking Ridge for a training course. The hotel, in addition to wedding facilities, has lecture theatres and presentation facilities, as well as rooms which can be broken down into classrooms and conference rooms.

We stayed for three nights, and were on site for almost all of that time. This was not a problem, since the food was excellent and varied, the service polite and attentive, and the atmosphere good at all times. My room was comfortable and the bed was absolutely huge. The bathroom was large too. It was fairly clear that the hotel has gone through some major refits in the last few years - the bathroom facilities were older - or seemed older - than most of the facilities in the rest of the room - but in general I had absolutely no complaints.

The bar was good, crowded and reasonably priced. It also had a couple of pool tables which helps you get to know people, which always helps. We had a formal meal on the last night and it has to be said that again the food was excellent. At no stage did the hotel leave any stone unturned or give any impression that they weren't absolutely in control of what was happening. This place runs like clockwork.

I did use the on-site gym a couple of times - this is where a little investment could help: some of the weights machines were showing their age a bit. The room they were in was right beside the pool and it was quite humid - possible this leads to the equipment degenerating more quickly than would be normal. Either way, it was fun to throw a few weights around but it was not the best gym you'll ever see. That's a small gripe though.

Other than that the only complaint I'd make is tha there isn't a whole lot nearby, which means when you want to carry ont he party you have to get a taxi down the road to Morristown. That problem can hardly be laid at the door of the Dolce though. Basking Ridge is a clean, comfortable, well run property. i enjoyed my stay a great deal.

So they charge $295+ tax a night, their prefab bathrooms/showers are ridiculous, but what is up with the shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower? I guess it is going GREEN, but at least they can put higher quality soaps?

I went to a social event at the hotel and was quite impressed. The hotel was spacious and very clean. The bed was super comfortable and the room very cozy. The bathroom was great--I loved the glass-enclosed shower.

The hotel picked us up and dropped us off at the local train station, which was very helpful, and the drivers were nice and polite. All the staff people I met were friendly and worked efficiently.

The only downside was that a wedding had taken place that evening and some drunken revelers were in the hallway in the middle of the night, making a lot of noise. "Where's my key, dude? I locked myself out" is not what you want to hear at 3:00 A.M.!!!
