“Feel like royalty for a day”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We recently spent a lovely, romantic overnight at this hotel as a quick getaway from nearby Queens. We had purchased a deal on groupon which included drinks, bottle of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and buffet breakfast. Our suite was spacious and larger than our entire apartment in Queens!

This old historic mansion has been converted to a hotel and conference center. The mansion itself is gorgeous with a beautfiul winding staircase in the lobby and old photos with explanation of the history behind the house (previously owned by the Woolworth and Reynolds families and others). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautfully kept. There is an outdoor pool in the summer, indoor pool and jacuzzi, fitness room, ping pong table, racquet ball courts, game room and more. Make sure to explore the Pub in the attic of the mansion as it is so quaint and historic (formerly housed the servants of the mansion).

The buffet breakfast was plentiful and scrumptious. There are also many local restaurants nearby and the hotel has a list of them at the front desk. The one word to describe this place is ENORMOUS....so make sure you spend some time exploring and you will be aMAZED by what you find.

TIP: If you are interested in a nearby unique attraction, please be sure to visit the John P. Humes Japanese Stroll Garden in Mill Neck (only open on weekends until the fall). Check out my review on tripadvisor.

this is a rather strange hotel, converted from a very large mansion and with many additions, mostly not sympathetic. Room OK and nice and quiet with a pleasant outlook onto greenery- (very large grounds). Just took a deal of navigation to get to the room as the place is an absolute maze.
Also probably more focused on convention business than traditional hotel services, which changes the mood somewhat. Not a place I would normally stay, but Kilikanoon wine tasting opportunity with one of the world's great wine writers Josh Raynolds too good an opportunity!

Just left a conference here and it is an ENORMOUS and pretty far hike from NYC hotel. I went for a quick hike/walk around Glenn Cove to see the amazing views of NYC from Long Island Sound. There is an indoor pool an outdoor pool workout room. They have it all! Again it's not new and shiny but aged and well taken care of. The staff was extremely helpful and the stay was a success.

We had a great experience doing our Family Reunion at Glen Cove. Staff was very accommodating; the meeting rooms, AV equipment, meals and service all worked out well. Hotel rooms very comfortable and the grounds and pool were lovely. So glad we did the event there! Would definitely recommend Glen Cove for meetings and events.

We booked a getaway at this lovely inn. Driving up was spectacular. Check-in OK--we kept being interupted by various group leaders (they do tons of conferences). Although she asked us to let us know if we needed anything, we wanted to get out of the tiny room. The walk to our room was extremely long and involved two different elevators. At that end of the property, you can't get outside to the grounds at all, you have to go all the way back to the front. Even the gates to the pool were locked except from the front door. You could get to the gardens--which were beautiful but stunk of chemical treatments and had no beverage service or anything--and people's trash on the tables for hours (a theme repeated through out the hotel--the entire two days the ice machine was covered in dirty glasses). In the room (which was fine--a basic, clean room) was a notebook with....no info at all. No menus, no local attractions or map, nothing. We didn't even know they served food except breakfast until we were checking out.

So, clump all the way back and wait forever to speak with a person at the front desk who was not a native and knew nothing about the area. She did give us a jogging map. While they had a little rack of brochures hidden away in a different room, they were all for New York City shows (why?). We were completely on our own. We tried going up to the pub which was competely empty (I know why--they were blaring rap music for no good reason and wouldn't turn it down). A waitress finally found an old photocopied rumpled up list of restaurants for us--she was the best staff person we found.

The hotel is really in a nice place and we decided to go off the jogging map and found a beach, some really nice houses and other places--luckily we weren't afraid of getting lost--this 8-mile walk was the highlight of our trip.

Room Tip: Ask for the closest room possible to the front desk. The mansion is the front (no rooms), and all t...

Thank you for your feedback. We have shared your review with our Front Office team and have reviewed all of our local attraction information with them in order to better serve our guests. As we host thousands of international travelers per year, we offer information on NYC attraction as well since the Long Island Railroad (the station is only 5 minutes away!) provides quick access for our guests to enjoy those attractions as well. There are many secured access points to the outside in various areas of the hotel that are noted on the map provided to each guest at check in. We are glad that you enjoyed the surrounding area in Glen Cove and look forward to your return in the future,

We spent a full week in Glen Cove just this month. It was as part of a wedding crew and I have to admit when you first drive in you are immediately impressed with the property and how well it is kept.The gardens are beautiful and the mansion itself really is a site. Similarly the main reception area and surrounding rooms (library, business centre, dining room etc) are all very impressive. The only thing I would say against them is that we went in June when the weather was very hot and air conditioning was absolutely blasting out of it- most rooms in the hotel were actually quite cold but that's a personal preference as opposed to a general issue and not something I can in any way hold against the hotel. Just something to be aware of if you're not fond of air-con; bring a jumper!

The staff were all lovely and co-operated with us the entire week, whether it was where to dine or helping with my elderly grandmother or losing keys etc and I could not fault them. The food is also not bad and in particular their cookies are absolutely gorgeous (we got them a couple of times on room service) and the breakfast is a very high standard.Housekeeping however could do with some work. I showered every day and used half bottles or empties and housekeeping didn't take away the half-empties. It's a little thing, maybe it's an environmental thing but it wasn't tidy. Similarly, the beds are only changed once every third day- at the room rates, I think change them more often than that.

The bedroom I stayed in was an accessible room looking out on to the garden and for security reasons my window wouldn't open which I found difficult as there was very poor ventilation in the room and the air-con is quite old and loud. To be honest, the rooms generally are a bit tired and need a bit of work. Also the accessible room had a shower with a bath that wasn't flush with the floor so I'd to lift the other guest into the shower over the foot high side of the bath- in Ireland, and Europe generally, that wouldn't pass for an accessible room.

The gym is also a bit tired but it does the job and it's nice to have the facility. There's also a pool, inside and out and they're both very nice. The surrounding area around the outdoor pool was beautiful and we spent some time there, everything is expensive though; one glass of pinot is $9.50 and beer is $9 a bottle.

Overall it's a nice hotel, it really is with decent food (albeit expensive), very competent, polite and co-operative staff but the actual building itself is what let's it down. The gardens are great but the back of the hotel, where the rooms are, with the winding, endless corridors are tired and need revamping. Would I recommend a stay in Glen Cove? To be honest, it would depend on the rate you were paying. If you were getting B & B for $100 a night per person, then yes I would but for anything higher than that, then probably not.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms at the end of the corridors if you can, some of our party were in 342 and they'd...

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad that we were able to accommodate your wonderful wedding party that many of us had the opportunity to interact with, We would accommodate any request to change the linens more often and are able to provide supplemental amenities as requested. As you noted, we have made an effort to be more green and our commitment to do so has certain parameters that we have put in place. Our 24 hour gym facilities were recently renovated and we are glad to have this amenity accessible at all times to our guests. We are committed to keeping our pricing competitive to the surrounding hotels in the area and do constant analysis of these venues to ensure consistency. We place great value on our product and services and our rates reflect the pricing necessary to provide these services as well as maintain and improve our product. We hope that everyone enjoyed the wedding and that the memories are joyous!

A delightful blend of old and new features, together, surrounded by a beautiful location featuring well-planned landscaping and what seems like miles of green, manicured grass with trees in the distance. Rooms are nice and big. Two pools, indoor and outdoor. Nice gym. Old, restored mansion serves as the centerpiece of the property. This facility is designed for small to medium conferences. Beautiful place for weddings, too. Close to Great Neck and Roslyn, as well.
