Positive Reviews

Grand sense of history

The hotel is of course a classic. In a state where the attractions are so often almost brand new, guests clearly appreciated the charm and sophistication of a hotel where both the buildings and the hotel were well over 100 years old.

Immaculate grounds

Although guests did say that the buildings needed a little bit of work, perhaps as a consequence of being a very old wood building, the grounds were described as simply immaculate. Guests seemed to like both the landscaping and the fact that everything was kept in excellent condition.

Great view over the lake

This was one of the most mentioned factors in positive reviews. Guests simply considered the view over the lake from the property to be sublime.

Negative Reviews

Problems with room allocation

Quite a number of guests mentioned that they had trouble with room assignments. They mention booking a room of a certain type, only to be told on arrival that they were to be put on another room. Sometimes third party booking engines were said to be at fault, but guests didn’t always accept this excuse, thinking perhaps that their booked room had been reassigned for operational reasons.

Buildings in need of maintenance

While there were indications that the hotel was slowly undergoing a multi-year renovation, in the meantime guests mentioned that there were noticeable maintenance defects in some of the buildings, especially when it came to the exterior.

Some problems with noise

While not mentioned very often, a few guests did report being disturbed at night by inconsiderate guests making a huge racket. It seems that the hotel may not be set up to deal well with these sort of disturbances.
