Hotel Fauchere is a Relais and Chateaux property in historic Milford, PA and certainly where you want to stay if you are going to that very attractive town near the Delaware River National Recreation Area. This is a sophisticated hotel with much that is positive. A few minor issues [because one expects superior service in a R&C] keep me from giving this hotel a 5-star. But first, the positives - the staff is exceptionally nice and accommodating, always willing to help or drop everything to address your request. The owners are on-site and it shows. The hotel is lovely, beautifully renovated from near death. From the tiled first floor hallway floor and wide-planked wood floor in our room to the very pleasant front sitting/eating porch are all gorgeous - loved it! Breakfast is very nice [the restaurant was not open for dinner when we were there mid-week but I am sure it is very good] and one can eat either in the sun room or on the front porch - so nice.
Our room was pleasant though a bit on the small side. We prefer rooms that aren't cluttered with stuff and this room was pretty much on the minimalist side which was fine. At first we were a little surprised at the simplicity of the room [nothing on the walls except a small flat-screen TV on a bracket], but we got used to it and since it was attractive in and of itself, we were happy with it. Attention has been paid to the furnishings and drapes as well as the lighting - we had everything we needed, desk, comfortable chair, somewhere to put the suitcases etc. A "nespresso" machine for an early morning shot of espresso was in the room and of course WIFI was available. The bathroom was top notch with a dual rainshower head, one hard one soft - heavenly, all marble and tastefully done.
My minor gripes concern special touches that one would expect from an R&C property - our dirty coffee cups were not removed and replaced with fresh cups and new coffee so we had to request that. Our room had a terrace with two wooden lounge chairs - nice - but the planter which should have had flowers or a plant in it was empty. The garden the terrace looked out on also needed some attention and a large, attractive fountain was empty [freshly painted maybe?] These are minor notations on our stay. We would recommend this hotel as a very comfortable and pleasant place and we would return.
