A visit to the Skylands Manor, a grand fifty-four room granite Tudor Revival mansion, will find you nestled among 100 acres of manicured grounds within the 1000 acres that are the New Jersey Botanical Gardens. The 24 newly restored guest rooms and glamorous suites overlook vistas of stunning gardens and expansive grounds. The castle is both exclusive and affordable. Enjoy the far off feeling that you will have at a location that is just a short drive away.

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding that was also at the venue. The staff was amazingly helpful. They accommodated so many of my unusual requests (storing breastmilk for baby, filling water bottles,, etc.). The rooms and common areas were elegant, yet had a homey feel. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. I can't comment on the regular onsite dining because we were there for an event which provided food and drinks (which were great). The bathroom was not ideal because the sink stopped up quickly and the running water had an odd color. The staff filled up bottles for me to use, so we worked around it.

We had another wonderful time staying here. It is a magical place with an outstanding innkeeper whom always makes our stay special!

The manor is interesting, but, the accommodations disappointing. Impossible to control room temperature, peeling paint in bathroom with quaint, but, poorly performing fixtures, tiny TV, can't open the windows, and what was that smell?

My husband and I recently stayed at the Castle which is right in the middle of State of New Jersey owned land and it was just wonderful.It was peaceful and the owner went out of his way to come us comfortable. We were told about the history of the Manor and given a tour with lots of little details .I can only imagine what it would be like to having your wedding reception here...like a fairy tale.We would definitely go back !

the inkeeper was so nice. The building was very well kept and felt like going back in time. Not many hotels can give you that experience!

I had a business and personal trip butting up against each other and needed shelter for one night. Thank goodness I found this place! The staff were so accomadating with my needs--especially when I had to wait for my next ride. The rooms are charming--it's not every day you spend the night in an honest to goodness castle. And the grounds of the manor and the park are wonderful. Just truly relaxing. I'm going to recommend all my friends from the DC area check this place out.

Beautiful grounds- beautiful "castle"--disturbed at sight of elderly wedding guests arriving and stairs merely pointed out to them-no assistance with luggage ( my husband volunteered and made four trips up and down - one guest assumed he worked there and offered a tip! Room was beautiful - included breakfast wonderful ! One awkward point - we reserved a room with a private bath- however it was down the hall and while it had a small plaque designating it as "our" bathroom -wedding guests were using it all night long and one used my makeup! I packed up and removed our personal belongings at 1030pm after that !!
