Berry Hill Resort & Conference Center

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The team at Berry Hill Resort helped make a very special occasion (my mother's memorial service) perfect. We had friends and family coming from all over the country and needed a place where they could stay and where it would be easy to accommodate a variety of guest needs (from 8 years old to 84 years old). Berry Hill fit the bill. We arranged to have a dinner for guests to either come enjoy at a seated table or be able to take back to their rooms for the night everyone was arriving. We also arranged for the memorial service to be held at the resort / hotel followed by a reception and then, later in the evening a special dinner for close friends and family. Each event was catered to perfection and the staff went above and beyond to take care of "special requests" from our guests. The follow through and willingness to adapt to our guests needs with a smile and a happy attitude was just amazing. They really helped us celebrate my mother's life by providing a warm welcoming atmosphere for all our guests and taking the time to attend to all the details that occur with such a large event. We had 50 family and friends coming into town and another 50 or so from the surrounding community joining us at various times. I couldn't have been happier. The pool table in the mansion was available for everyone to use (and they did) and the pool was a hit with the younger guests. Very event friendly. They even helped us find a Dixieland jazz band for our event -- and they were terrific! Our guests were impressed with the site itself...so many compliments on the beautiful grounds and mansion.

Room Tip: Many rooms have a balcony. I would request a room that overlooks the gardens as opposed to the pool...

From the check in to the room prep and welcoming smiles this resort was the type that made us feel welcome and at home. Their staff prepared for a major family event in such a professional way, working with us before and during the event in a fabulous and professional manner. Event planning can be difficult and they made it seem smooth all the way from check in through to the delicious five course dinner, which was simply lovely. Their staff is very well chosen and engaging with guests against the backdrop of 19th century architecture and rooms steeped in history open to all guests. The grounds are incredible for lovers of photography, for walkers and for those who just wish to get away and enjoy the natural beauty of this historic Virginia gem. Our two day event did not give us enough time to take advantage of all of the amenities. I can't say enough good things about Berry Hill.

We spent two days July 26, 27 here. The room, bedding, towels were all clean. When I reserved with Angela, I specifically asked for two chairs on baloney as I enjoy sitting outside and refrigerator if available. Opened French doors - NO CHAIRS. No refrigerator but that was not a big deal. Trip to front desk didn't seem to help - asking to talk to manager did. Thank you Byron for bringing two rockers AND a refrigerator - you were so polite. Also thank you Shirley at the front desk for assisting us - and I hope the front desk redhead can learn to smile. The pool was only 4 feet deep and a little on the cool side. Fitness room looked sufficient. The grounds and mansion itself were very well kept - enjoyed playing billiards, chess, checkers in the main house - even with two weddings we did not feel crowd. The Sunday buffet was very good and the waitresses the best. For the price of the room and the distance from the driveway someone to help with bags would have been nice. We had an appetizer (so/so) and drinks in the tavern - just standard.
Do not miss taking the tour with Mr. Lealand Luck. He obviously has spent a lot of time researching the mansion's history and people who have owned it and lived here over the years. He was very entertaining and we enjoyed him very much.

Room Tip: Ask ahead if you want chairs - not sure what good a baloney is with none.

Absolutely loved this converted plantation.
Stayed in one of the two little rooms outside of the main hotel..."The Jefferson Room".
So quaint, fun and romantic. Loved it.
Beautiful pool onsite and gym.
Loved sitting on our own front porch in rocking chairs, watching the sun go down, and listening to all the sounds. Delightful.
Gorgeous and historical.
A total gem.

We paid way too much for what we got. When we first arrived I noticed that the carpet walking down the hall way was badly stained. There were also bleach marks all the way down the hall way. Our room smelled like some one had just smoked a pack and our sheets were very dirty. I requested a new room which only took about 10 min. The new room smelled better and the sheets were clean but the sink and shower were clogged. We were in a hurry because we had dinner reservations at the hotel. I had to take a "bath" Shower because of the clogged tub, that was disgusting. We had to leave by 6:30am the next morning and wanted a quick breakfast. The continental breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. I wanted to take a cup of coffee on the road but they were all out of cups at 6:30am. We will never stay here again. I have paid half the price at Embassy Suites and had a made to order breakfast, clean room, and great service.

South Boston is on an old plantation, in the midst of many old plantations. It is verdant, quiet, serene. The pub is sufficient, although hardly noteworthy. We did not eat at the formal restaurant in what was the manor house.
The rooms in the main hotel are spacious, well-appointed. Ours had a terrace. The bathroom and its accoutrements and soaps were modern, appealing and everything worked.
I was surprised to hear people talking in the hallway late at night -- I had heard no other noise, but their actual conversation was audible.
Staff is hospitable. Pace is southern. Buffet breakfast in not memorable, but is sufficient. Coffee in the room is better.

Room Tip: Terrace side rooms are especially nice.

I don't stay at extremely ritsy places often, but once a year I do go through quite a few lengths to make my anniversary special. Berry Hill accomplished that and then some.
Almost unheard of throughout most parts of VA, Berry Hill offers extremely reasonable weekend packages that are absolutely stellar. Very nearly a perfect experience, and I highly recommend to anyone interested in a romantic getaway.

Tips: Book a room with a balcony AND request two chairs on the balcony when you make your reservation.
If you're going the "surprise your SO" route, the long drive into the property is the perfect culmination for your planning.
Bring good walking shoes. The ground are beautiful and extensive.

Room Tip: Book a terrace level front-facing room with a balcony.
