Not great, not terrible. Went to Lititz to take in the Fire and Ice Festival and stayed one night at the General Sutter in Room 210. This an interesting place. Yes, in need of renovation and updating but for the price, a decent value. But, if you are interested in rest, think twice. There is a "pub" located on the property and it was packed on Friday night and very, very loud. We had the misfortune of staying on the 2nd floor right above the pub and the noise was unreasonable until at least midnight. Then, it started all over again at 8 AM when the pub opened for breakfast and was packed and loud again. DO NOT STAY IN ROOM 210 or any other room above the pub. In addition, the walls and doors etc. are thin and the hallway noise was very annoying. So, bottom line, if you are looking for a restful night stay somewhere else.
Our room was cozy and the bed was wonderful but the room does need an update. Peeling paint and wallpaper, drafty windows, poor heating but clean and quaint.
We had dinner in the restaurant on the property on Valentines Day as well. The menu was very limited, very expensive (as were the craft beers which they seem to be very proud of) but the meal was good and the service was excellent. Would probably eat somewhere else if we were to return to the area.
They offered a "continental breakfast" for guests in the morning. Basically all starch and carbs that made Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express seem gourmet! Clearly they want to drive you into the pub for the overpriced "English Breakfast". We passed on both.
So, would we stay there again? Most likely not. Were we disappointed? Not really because based on some other reviews we had seen, our expectations were not really that high. Would we eat in the restaurant again? No, way overpriced for the area and the selection was poor. Would I recommend this place to a friend? No, not in its current condition. So there you have it, a mixed bag.
