Firmstone Manor
Reviewed 16 November 2008

We stayed at the Firmstone Manor during the first week in November and were quite happy with the overall experience. Barbara and Charlie have worked hard to bring this 1873 Victorian mansion up to todays standards and have been very sucessful with that effort we thought. The room are wonderfully decorated in the style of the era along with the public spaces - a real treat to a fan of that architectual period. Excellent collection of dvd's to view in the upper library! Breakfast was delightful and prepared with suggestions Charlie had asked us for the previous evening. We're birders and mountain bikers and were delighted with the offerings in the neighborhood.

They love their three little doggies who will great you when you arrive - if you're not a dog fan that might turn you off. But the dogs are not allowed the run of the public parts of the house.

We thought it an excellent value and experience. We'd definitely stay there again.

Stayed: November 2008

Reviewed 2 June 2007

We booked 2 nights at the Firmstone Manor They advertised as "pet friendly" and we have a medium sized dog that travels with us all the time.
The proprietor told me over the phone that she had 2 dogs, and that were very friendly, but asked me if our dog was friendly. I told her that she is not aggressive, and just ignores other animals.
When we arrived, we could not get out of our car, as her dogs were "keeping us at bay". Finally we were able to enter the inn, but left our dog inside the car. When we attepted to introduce our dog to hers, they immediatly attacked her. We took our dog with us, on a leash anytime she was out of the room, but still had difficulty keeping her animals away from ours. The day we left, her dog viciously attacked ours as we were leaving.....So be fore-warned....the Firmstone Inn is NOT pet-friendly!!
