We just returned from this scenic inn nestled in some very beautiful countryside in west chester pa. My wife and I travel a fair bit and have been host to many excellent inns throughout New England and Canada. I'd consider us veteran travellers with a good range of accomodation experiences to draw from.
This was a family gathering to celebrate several family milestones and the Inn was used a base to operate out of for a busy weekend itinerary. Grounds are beautiful, rooms were clean but we had a suite and I'd rate it as very average. The rooms were cookie cuttered and you had to go through the one bedroom to use the bathroom. Overall though it certainly was acceptable, but overpriced in our opinion.
The biggest complaint is that for an Inn charging $300 plus a night, we were horrified by the lack of warmth by the operators. Similar to other peoples experiences, breakfast, while good food, was a disaster. The host was rude, didn't want anyone in our group to move a table to accomodate our party, and generally was about as rude and insensitive a host as we've experienced. Imagine a group of 20 paying somewhere in the area of $1500 plus for rooms and the host is acting like we're putting them out to slide two tables together at breakfast??? Are u kidding?? Our whole family loves to travel and we were uniformly humored but truthfully disgusted with the way the host bullied people into seats, complained that we needed to sit down for breakfast...and basically acted as if we were an inconvenience- instead of paying customers...
We all agreed that overall this place was a huge disappointment and we'd never return. If you're looking for ambiance...look elsewhere. The grounds are nice, but the people running this place need to take some lessons in how to actually make guests feel like they're $300 plus was worth it.. I'd look elsewhere if you're reading this.
