Sleepless night

2.6 on August 21, 2014

We stayed on August 20, 2014 for my birthday in the Italian room. The building is beautiful, the staff friendly and the room was clean, but every time the air conditioner ran and the compressor kicked on it rattled very loudly. We slept very little if any that night do to the noise. It the morning we ate and left. No one was at the desk (we left the keys on the desk) and no one ask us how our stay was, We would not stay again.


Fun, Unique, Quaint experience

3.6 on August 14, 2014

Stayed in the Italian room which was beautiful but beware, No shower only a tub. Castle is great. Very interesting to See the antique structure etc. staff very friendly and Courteous. Had 7 course dinner in restaurant. Food was yummy but not Particularly French. Did get worst of the waiters. Saw that other waiters We're much more efficient. I've been to French restaurants Before and Outstsnding service is a trademark. Did not get that here


Henderson Castle is enchanting!

Stayed in the winter the first time. Mr Henderson's quarters. Beautiful room. Would love to come back this summer and enjoy the garden and rooftop jacuzzi. Dinner was amazing. Love the back story of the castle and the fact that it's rumored to be haunted.... adds a certain charm to this amazing place.


perfect !!!

We had a lovely stay. Henderson Castle is a gem and every room was well appointed. The only drawback was our room was a bit chilly. Everything else was wonderful. I'd definitely recommend it to others.

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

1.0 on July 15, 2013

Girls 40th Getaway turned out to be a night of big disappointment. For $224 we got bugs in the "cottage", water in the bathroom that shut off on us in the morning, a hot tub that was full of dirt and debris MINUS water. We were told that it would not be working until NEXT WEEK. The breakfast was NOT included in price. The spa area was a make shift room full of dust and "stuff" everywhere. No sheets or blankets for "pull out bed" (had to ask several times). Mattress on pull out bed from couch should have been replaced - it was AWFUL. Sheet on bed was inside out - did they even wash it? no table to set any of your items on. Room was very small. Shotty work throughout the "cottage". We told them how unhappy we were and they still swiped the card for the full price. We had to listen to swearing and smell smoke from staff as they "worked" outside by the garden. Website is beautiful - but beware. ASK ABOUT EVERYTHING!

Innkeeper Response
Dear customer, I'm not sure what went wrong with your experience but you seems to be very upset. Therefore most of your statement are over exaggerated and not true. There is a continental breakfast included with the room witch include Juice, coffee, fresh fruit fresh pastry and cereals. As far the hot tub is concerned It was indeed out of order for couple of day , therefore we invited you to use the one on the roof...The pull out coach is most likely less comfortable than a real bed I will agree but it is a new unit with a new mattress. We actually did not charge you for you 2 extra guest that alone was a 50 % saving. I hope I answer your questions and wish to see you again for a new experience. Sincerely, Francois


Fun getaway
