Reviewed 1 July 2013

My wife and I have been staying at Amishview Inn since 2005. It is a great place and convenient to just about everything. The rooms are always clean and the grounds are always very peaceful and very well maintained. However, in the past I had commented that they had old TVs in the rooms. Not any longer. They have finally upgraded to flat panel televisions. Though I don't watch it much, its good to have a flat screen than an old CRT.

It turns out that they are adding another building for more suites. We were told that they should be ready by April of 2014. It was nice and quiet during the weekend though.

Plain and Fancy restaurant was great as usual. The gift shop is a little smaller due to some rearrangement of facilities--I suppose due to the new building. The garden was beautiful and the bus tour we took was very good and very informative. We stopped at an Amish home and a bakery. The whoopie pies were fantastic and the homemade soft pretzel was delicious.

Amishview in costs more than other hotels in the area, but it is very well worth it. Breakfast is included with your reservation. They have omlettes, waffles, french toast, cerials, oatmeal, sausage, and much more. It's not one of those continental breakfasts where you get a danish and coffee.

Amishview Inn is our headquarters for the outlets on Rt 30 (Rockvale and Tanger), Kitchen Kettle Village, which also looks like they expanded it to more shops, local restaurants, various attractions, and buggy rides. It's a great place to stay and I'm looking forward to our next trip.

Room Tip: Every room we have ever stayed in were great. We typically stay in room 302, which has a great view...

My wife and I stayed here for a night and we really enjoyed it. I saw good reviews here on TripAdvisor, so I hoped that it would live up to the billing and it did.

The location is nice. It's a few miles away from the main area attractions, but it's nice and quiet. It's easy to get to the hotel and the parking lot had plenty of parking. The outside of the building was well kept, clean and landscaped nicely.

We purchased the "Getaway Enhancement" package and it was well worth the money considering what we saved on dinner at the Plain & Fancy. How they call ahead to get you seating there is nice also.

The front desk staff was friendly and courteous. Inside the hotel lobby, everything was decorated nicely and the place was spotless.

Once up to our top floor room, we really understood why this was called the AmishView Inn, as we had an awesome view of the Amish farmland. I almost felt guilty relaxing while watching the workers toil at their tasks with their horse teams in the fields.

The room was majestically decorated with nice artwork, and the metal bed had tall bedposts with framework for a canopy. Wow. We had a jacuzzi suite and everything was very clean. The bathroom was nice and clean, there was a separate sink area outside of the bathroom, a desk, a wet bar type area with another sink and a small refrigerator and microwave. I don't think that I've ever had a hotel room so large and spacious before!

We enjoyed the pool area down in the basement. There was a nice swimming pool and a hot tub in the same area. We were fortunate to have the area to ourselves for a while which was especially nice. Everything was clean and there were plenty of clean pool towels available. Even in the pool area, there were windows letting us look outside at the Amish farmland.

Outside of the pool area was a small arcade and a workout room with a few machines. Again, nice and clean.

Breakfast was wonderful! I mean, really, really good for being included with the room. They had an omelet station and my wife got "Ferhoodled" (I think that was the name of the special omelet.) She even got a pin to wear on her shirt. I ate way too much and the guy working the omelet station was excellent.

Our stay was very nice with the only bad part being that they didn't have vacancy for a second night, and we had to transfer to the disappointing Country Inn & Suites.... That's what I get for last minute trip planning!

I would definitely stay here again!

This is where we started to stay when visiting Lancaster. The rooms are clean and they have a nice breakfast in the am. The only reason we switched is it only has an indoor pool and we wanted to be outside. The rooms are also a bit pricier than other places althought I would still recommend it. The location is nice, not on the main highway and near everything.

We had a pleasant stay for 2 nights in June 13, however the whole experience did feel slightly sterile. This establishment is larger than what we imagined (more than 50 rooms I believe) so it did feel like a regular hotel in the Lancaster countryside, so there are pros and cons to it.

The hotel is part of a full-packaged establishment (includes the Plain and Fancy restaurant, Amish Experience, Buggy Rides etc). We stayed in two different types of rooms, one the normal king room and one the whirlpool suite on the 3rd floor. Both rooms are immaculately kept and very clean, and there is a lot of space. Actually we feel that the king room is definitely pleasant enough but if you want to splurge on the whirlpool on your holiday, go ahead by all means.

The amenities in the room are maintained very well and are in good working condition. Special mention goes to the heavenly orange scented toiletries set, which feel luxurious.

Also, props to the breakfast team and a well cooked spread in the dining room near the lobby. There is an omelette speciality called the Ferhoodle which is yummy, do request for it. Also, the breakfast potatoes are really nice as well. The breakfast room looks out over a field that we saw Amish farmers hard at work early at 7+.

The hotel is well located in between Bird in Hand and Intercourse (but you def need a car to visit it!). If you are looking for an all-inclusive stay, this is perfectly fine and would exceed most of your expectations actually, but if you are looking for a quaint B&B type of stay, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the rear.

This was our first visit to this hotel. We were very happy. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Pool and hot tub very nice an warm and clean. Amish experiences on site as well as Good and Plenty restaurant. Breakfast buffet was a full course breakfast with almost anything you wanted. If you took advantage of buffet you didn't need to eat unill dinner. Fruit, lemonaide coffee and tea available all day, fresh amish cookies in the afternoon. Only double bed suites look out over amish farm land. Just wish there was king suite looking over farmland, but view was worth the inconvience of not having king. Best advice is to ride back roads to find crafts ...cheaper and more authentic.

Room Tip: they are adding on a building, hopefully it will include king suites overlooking farm land

We have been to the AmishView several times. We had a large one-bedroom suite that was extremely spacious and very clean. The towels in the bathroom were white as snow and soft as a baby's bottom. The Inn serves a nice homey breakfast each morning. The dining area feels like you are home in your dining / living room. The seating area has a fireplace, tv and views of the Amish farms. Each evening there are cookies and popcorn for your pleasure. The Inn has free wi-fi. The indoor pool is nice and equipped with towels.

The Inn staff could be a little bit more polished and accommodating, but they are not rude! I think a training class on hotel customer service would improve the quality of the front desk service.

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us. I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit, and the amenities provided (plush towels, fresh-baked cookies, and a beautiful farmland view...what more would anyone need?). We are very fortunate to have a wonderful Housekeeping Team that keeps our Inn spotless each and every day! The goal of our Front Desk Team is to be welcoming and as accommodating as possible, and I'm sorry to hear that you felt the service was lacking in that area. On behalf of the entire staff of Amish View Inn & Suites, we thank you for your patronage and look forward to hosting you again very soon!
