Quaint Indy Locale

3.4 on January 07, 2016

We loved the room and the quiet. The only quibble we really had was that the breakfast this morning was only continental. Most places we have been have offered at least one hot dish and I thought when we checked in she said we would have breakfast "to order" but this may have been a fluke as it was Christmas Eve. The space was beautiful and I would love to come back in better weather to enjoy the outdoor areas and walk around the city.

Great getaway and quiet too!

I would highly recommend the Villa as a great get-away. The rooms are beautiful, clean and well kept. My wife and I had a great time celebrating our anniversary there.

My thoughts about The Villa: It was a very friendly place, with excellent staff who wanted the best for us during the stay. The room was very comfortable and well supplied. A coffee machine would have been useful, but the snacks and the water were good. The high point - Diana and her awesome breakfasts - she is fantastic. Would I stay there again - you bet!

We adore the Villa! Literally every aspect of this place is fantastic - the food at the restaurant is amazing, rooms are great and spa is divine! Ask Josh for great food and wine pairings!

I had a wonderful stay at The Villa Inn. The Bed and Breakfast was exceptional as were the spa services.

A great weekend get away in the City!

A peaceful weekend get away just north of downtown Indianapolis! Great place to go to have a feel of a vacation European without having to travel. Restaurant is wonderful, and you must try a spa/massage treatment! Stay in the carriage house suite for added seclusion!
