We just returned from our fifty-second night at Glenlaurel. Unfortunately, we once again became aware of how the romantic paradise created by the original owner and landlord is now long past and replace by a business. While much of the original beauty remains, the heart and soul is gone. The Happy Hour was sad, the personal touch of an authentic Innkeeper was missing, and the atmosphere of the dinning room was on par with Denny's. If the new owners hope to regain the paradise that was lost they will need to do more than operate a business, promote the "dream" via PR, and place at the head someone with the artistic vision and skill of the original owner, Michael Daniels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A visit to Glenlaurel is laced with romance; from the moment the Manor House comes into view at the driveway entrance until it fades into the tree line from the rearview mirror at departure...the warm welcome at the front door feels like arriving at the stately home of a distant but approachable relative where the children are all grown or away for the weekend. Welcome into the Legend...the Legend of Glenlaurel. Experience the look of the Scottish countryside and the feel of times gone by at our luxurious Hocking Hills accommodations (rooms, suites, crofts, and cottages) that are perfect for romantics and dreamers. ... more less
