We spent two nights in the Douglas Suite at Glenlaurel Inn in celebration of our tenth wedding anniversary. We were satisfied with our experience. The property and facilities are very clean and well-maintained. Though the décor and fixtures were basic for the $250 per night price tag (vinyl floors in the bathroom, resin-type big box store vanity, accordion folding closet-type doors between bed and bathroom providing minimal privacy), the Douglas did have a nice, clean hot tub, (gas) woodstove, kitchenette, and deck. The superb three course breakfast, the beautiful 100+ acre property at peak autumn season, close proximity to astounding Hocking Hills parks, high degree of privacy from other guests, and the friendly service also made the high nightly rate more justifiable. We noticed possible improvements: lack of control over temperature (suite had no thermostat, we had to open windows to cool the room, even when using gas stove minimally on a rather cool weekend), bedclothes were tedious (comforter was sandwiched between two unsecured bed sheets which constantly slipped, exposing the possibly-not-laundered-between-each-guest comforter (easily remedied by addition of buttons or snaps at sheet tops), and one-person shower (not large enough to accommodate two smallish people simultaneously). We consider these shortcomings overlookable, however, in light of all the other lovely amenities. Overall, we would recommend Glenlaurel for a pleasant and memorable getaway.
- 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
