Ignore all the bad things you read about Skylands Manor. It has an old world charm that you won't find anywhere else. Our room was clean and beautiful. Exploring was not only allowed, but encouraged. Our hosts were excellent from check in to check out. Breakfast exceeded my expectations. It had read some bad reviews about the breakfast in particular. So I expected much less. It was bountiful and delicious! Yes it has it's flaws as far as chipped paint (you really had to look for it) and outdated bathroom fixtures (that added to the charm of the room). I've stayed at 5 star resorts that had these problems. Skylands Manor is well worth the price.

Colin was an excellent host. Would have loved a coffee maker in the room.

We went to the Castle at Skyland Manors for a wedding. The rooms are old but you have to expect that since it is a Castle. We were on the 3rd floor with no elevators and the parking lot is pretty far away. The wedding was outstanding. Overall it was a good expierence.

Room was delightful, clean and true to the castle design. Value was wonderful. The room was clean with plenty of bath linens. Breakfast was great and relaxing! The gardens were beautiful, relaxing and great to stroll through with all the statues and fountains and benches.

We were in the area for the renaissance faire in Tuxedo Park, so we booked this place to keep the theme of the weekend and we were glad we did. The scenery was amazing, the gardens, fountains and statues gave the place a serene and peaceful feel even while other people were around. The manor itself was amazing, with a historic yet cozy feel to it. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was full of interesting choices with several rooms to eat if you wanted privacy, or out on the patio to enjoy the morning. This is a must stay for couples who enjoy this kind of place, we will definitely be coming back soon!

This place is absolutely wonderful. We had the most amazing weekend getaway. From the beautiful grounds, to the over accommodating staff, this place is a must stay. I can't wait to return!

We found the B&B quite clean and the proprietor to be very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to meet our needs. The breakfast that was served was delightful. His cooking was terrific.

My husband and I were guests at the castle June 4-6. We felt like we were in Tuscany, Italy! The castle is remarkable! We both said "wow!" when we entered the front drive. Please do yourself a favor and visit this place. The gardens are gorgeous with fountains, roses, flowers of all kinds and manicured lawns. Here's a good example, there is a hosta garden with 129 different types of hostas! Colin, the innkeeper, is also the chef for breakfast. Be sure and come hungry! His scrambled eggs are seasoned with sea salt he orders from France and he uses a blend of 4 peppers too. Now, let me tell you about his scones. He made 3 kinds, cinnamon, blueberry and raspberry with white chocolate. I have had lots of scones, but these were the best I had ever had. We cannot speak too highly of this place! We loved our time there and hope to visit again soon.

The rooms were very nice and all decorated differently which allowed a unique feel. It was winter, however, so some rooms were very cold. Overall, our entire staff enjoyed the intimate dinner and stay.

We stayed one night for a short little getaway from everyday life. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, as are the grounds. The breakfast wasn't very exciting but that wasn't why we went so it wasn't too much of a let down.

We had a fantastic experience staying at Skylands Manor! The property is amazing; it was like we were staying in a real castle. The grounds are breathtaking too. It definitely felt like a very special place, and we would love to return. It's a bit strange that the only staff we encountered was one guy in shorts and a t-shirt who reluctantly showed us to our room. But otherwise it was 5 star.

We had the best time this past weekend. A wedding event that turned out wonderful. The event coordinator did a great job and we know that is key to a large event. Would recommend having a wedding here!

A unique get away in the middle of a NJ botanical garden. Perfect for a weekend trip. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. We stayed in the black and white Gatsby room and loved it! It was equally fun exploring the grounds and the castle/manor itself. Breakfast was better than we expected. Staff were minimal - which suited us - so don't expect to be doted on.

Wow, what an amazing time. The castle takes you to a serene place with its romantic decor and lush gardens. Don't forget to stop by Warwick Winery and taste test their hard ciders. On the ride from Philadelphia, PA we took the backroads stopping along the way at local mom and pop shops for some one of a kind souveniers. The staff at the castle was very friendly and well versed in the local area. Tour the grounds of Ringwood Manor if you get a chance. It is equally relaxing. Have free continental breakfast complete with eggs, bacon, muffins and coffee on the patio overlooking the lush grounds. Will definitely visit again. If you are considering having a wedding here, the setting is more than appropriate and the rooms just as they appear in pictures!

We stayed in the King's Room. Very expensive but very elegant. Huge. A really lovely experience to actually sleep IN such a place that normally you would just look at from behind velvet ropes. The staff was courteous but not overly so. We asked for an early check in, no one got back to us after saying they would call us back. When we got there they knew that we wanted early check in but room wasn't ready. That was ok because they let us leave our luggage there, but then they left our room wide open so people looking around the castle were in our room with our LUGGAGE right there. Wasn't too happy about that at all. The place is beyond exquisite though as far as elegance, ambiance and location. But there is an air of deterioration that needs to be tended to. Molding in our room was dusty, so were all the fake plants. In the eating area there was a chunk of wall that was rotted and water down one side. Our room the ceiling was coming down, looks like water damage and in the morning one chair was covered with all sorts of white powder from the plaster. I found that so odd when you consider the place was so gorgeous. That really should be tended to. We were also left only ONE towel, even though there were two of staying there. Another oddity? And at breakfast the eggs were ice cold in the buffet. I don't mean to beat this up - it was amazing and wonderful but the staff could do more to make it special and the repairs that need to be made should be tended to, but I would definitely go again and would definitely recommend to anyone.
