    Love the hotel!! Very good atmosphere/ the hall when you come in at Christmas season is beautiful, mind you it is absolutely beautiful all year around/love the spa/ services are very good/

    The putnam bar should add some items to their menu//pasta/ panini/salads...their hamburger should always have their bun serve grilled...as the real bistro do!! it is a bit overwhelming to see some visitors hold a gathering of 3 to 9 people in front of their fireplace to exchange gifts..the hotel has other rooms, very welcoming also and more discreet... all in all it is a very very nice hotel!!

    Restaurant hours and service. Bar service. Bathrooms are run down. Hotel is pretty beat up and needs a face lift.

    Good

    Great location, nice staff. A shuttle into town was very handy. Ample parking and beautiful grounds. Breakfast and lunch were delicious, but a little expensive.

    Although the lobby was very pretty, the furniture in the rooms was very old and the mattress not that comfortable. The window air conditioner was very noisy. The Keurig in the room was nice, but the half and half cups were sour and clotted.

    The location is the only good thing about this hotel. It's a shame because the hotel is grand from the outside. The grounds are lovely of course. We enjoyed meeting Scott, the Bellman and sometime driver of the very convenient shuttle bus.

    The reception staff was practically nonexistentand seemed stressed. I had to be checked in by the concierge who by the way, recommended a terrible restaurant (Limoncello). If you do have to stay here get your dining recommendations from Scott, the Bellman. Breakfast in the taproom was ok but the waitress was not pleasant, in a rush and the food was bland. The room was clean, neat but they only offered a queen bed for 2 adults. The "deluxe" room was not deluxe in any way and we had a view of the roof. Also, I was hoping for a bit of history of the bldg. or at least the man the hotel is named for but did not see anything in the lobby of interest at all. For the price, you will be under whelmed and angry that you've wasted your money.

    Very friendly staff, the shuttle bus was a great bonus (willing to drive you and pick you up from anywhere whenever you need it!). The shuttle bus actually made the hotel even more of a no brainer in the end - when I was booking this hotel I was deliberating over whether I would regret not being in a downtown location, but since we wanted to spend most of our time in the park at the Victoria pool, it totally made more sense to be onsite for that! Didn't notice not being in downtown thanks to the easy access by hotel shuttle bus (heads up - it's kind of like having a private limo service if you're there when the hotel isn't busy). The staff driving the shuttle were very friendly and gave us great advice and tips on where to eat, which saved us time having to search reviews. By staying at this hotel we also saved money here and there by not having to pay for parking or to enter the park and the pool, so that made it a very prudent choice! We found our Booked.net rate to be good value for money, not totally cheap but we got a lovely room by paying a little extra to ensure we had a king size bed... We rented bikes from the hotel and cycled about for 2 hours which was just perfect.

    It's not as shabby as some of the reviews make out, although there could be a little more attention to detail here and there, but really I had an excellent stay and there was hardly anything that I didn't like...

    Location. Nice period charm, pretty well maintained.

    Service in restaurant was dreadfully slow. Bar staff was disengaged and wait staff appeared to be on strike. You could die of old age waiting for the elevator. General unhappiness exhibited by hotel staff.

    I loved how accomodating and friendly the staff was. The food was pretty good too.

    The hallway where my room was had a stench. And my room's bathroom could've been cleaner.
