We had talked about staying here for many years, and finally did so for my wife's birthday recently. We were overwhelmed by the condition and beauty of this almost 100 year old home. The entire staff is very friendly and eager to make your stay a special experience. We will definitely plan a return visit to this beautiful place. Mark and Teri Hoffman.

Beautiful place. I chose the lowest cost room, and it was unique in layout. Great little bar in the basement, and the restaurant is grand.

This beautiful location reminded me of being in Ireland. The property is very maintained. The rooms are renovated with a modern touch. Our cottage had a fireplace and a patio deck. I would go back again for sure. Breakfast was included and they go all out. The muffins are creative and each day is different. The only other meal I had was a dinner with 10 family members. Everyone lived their food, I had prime rib. My only complaint was only having 2 towels in our room, we called for more and they never came. There are no phones in the room to call the front desk and the first day our room was never made up. Other then that our 3 day stay was perfect!

We stayed for two days and had the Cotswold and Cambridge rooms in Honeysuckle Cottage. We were very pleased with our accommodations, and I believe the other couple was as well. Our dinner there one night was delicious, as were the breakfasts. I loved being able to walk around the house and explore all the rooms that were vacant - they were very lush and beautifully decorated. Some were quite whimsical - a hot pink tub here, a dining table in a bathroom there, etc. The English touch is certainly felt everywhere - from the names of the rooms to the British paintings and magazines. My ONLY complaint is the HEAVY swarm of mosquitos that attacked us when we tried to walk down to the river/croquet lawn. We literally had to run back to our cottage.

Weekend getaway for our 30th Anniversary. The Stratford room was large yet cozy. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. Dinner and breakfast outstanding. Would definitely recommend and go back.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn several weeks ago overnight and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, decor, service and food. It was a fantastic experience! So much so that I made plans with a few lady friends to come for dinner. Because we drove from a distance, we arrived a couple of hours prior to our dinner reservation. The owner was so kind and gracious and made us feel right at home. He insisted that we choose one of the dining rooms to sit and enjoy until our dinner reservation. He even sent staff over to take our drink order while we caught up with each others lives and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. It was truly a wonderful afternoon and evening. Yearning to come back from Shelby!

We loved everything about our stay. The only complaint we had was about the food. We dined for dinner and the restaurant is advertised as 5 star but the food was hardly that.

Loved the property. Bedrooms were clean and cozy.

What a beautiful inn! The grounds invite a stroll or a glass of wine in the garden. The room we stayed in was beautiful and luxurious. The breakfast - ordered off the special menu - was superb, and the service very gracious. Heartily recommend a romantic retreat here!
5 on August 11, 2016
This was our first stay and we would definitely stay again. Everything was perfect!

This beautiful B&B is such a delightful get away. We stayed in the Somerset Room which was wonderful & gorgeous. We had drinks in the pub downstairs, dinner and breakfast in the dining room. The food was fantastic! They will go to any means to make you satisfied here! This is a hidden gem.

Lots of character

2nd time staying here , had a very pleasant time. Food and service are excellent. Highly recommend.
4.6 on July 23, 2016
This place is amazing. Great dinners and breakfasts. The grounds and the mansion are astounding. Our only complaint is that we booked the room above the kitchen (the Avon room) which means they were working below us till midnight and started again at 6:00 am so don't plan to sleep except between those hours, unless you have noise cancelling earphones. But the view from this room is outstanding. Next time we will book a different room because as whole, we loved the place.
3.6 on July 19, 2016
We bought the champagne dinner package. My husbands meal was wonderful. Mine was just ok. The Ivy cottage was very private, clean and comfortable. The shower needs a shelf for soap and there are a few other things missing. The bed is wonderful. Breakfast- might skip that- bacon limp and quiche hard.
4.4 on July 18, 2016
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with an overnight at the Ivy Cottage. We ate that evening on the patio outside the pub. Love the beauty of the inn and its grounds.

Very nice garden.
4.8 on June 26, 2016
We have had dinner before at the English Inn, and enjoy the ambiance and the food. So we decided to spend our 50th wedding anniversary at the Inn. The whole experience was wonderful, with the exception of the bathroom door in our room, which is a heavy pocket door that is off its track, and very hard to move. The food was delicious, as always. The ambiance was just what we wanted, and the room was very comfortable. we would stay here again, and encourage others to give this wonderful place a try, especially this close to home. but beware the Brighton bedroom!
5 on June 18, 2016
Everything was delightful during our stay. We loved the English country feel, especially the grounds by the Grand River. Our meal was fantastic and everyone we met was so friendly.
4.8 on June 16, 2016
Two fantastic meals and a beautiful room and gardens made for a perfect getaway to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Highly recommended!
4.0 on June 15, 2016
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary by staying here overnight. Even though it is very close to home, it provided a beautiful escape from the ordinary. Food, service, personnel and room were great. Because of its age, we expected some sense of datedness in the facility, and it does show some signs of it, but that is part of its charm. The bathroom in the Brighton Room is a big issue, however. the pocket door doesn't work, and provides frustration in an otherwise rewarding experience. We would do this again, but will stay in a different room.
4.0 on June 13, 2016
English Inn was a beautiful little get away for a family wedding. The grounds and buildings made you feel someplace truly special in a country setting. The each cottage and building had character all it's own. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. I would go back in a heartbeat.
4.0 on June 10, 2016
I stayed in a Croquet Cottage the night of my wedding, and it was a beautiful, private room. We hardly interacted with any of the staff, nor did we eat there. But it was a fantastic room.
3.4 on June 08, 2016
We chose the English Inn for our first night as newly weds! It was so romantic and quaint! We loved the furnishings in the rooms - although the bed itself was quite uncomfortable - and breakfast in the morning was lovely! A special place to stay for a special day!
4.8 on June 07, 2016
Everything about our stay at the English Inn was fantastic! The food is great - the service is great and the scenery looking out at the Grand River is beautiful. My wife and I will be back again.

We stayed for a week at English Inn and found the House and Property most wonderful and well kept. The B&B rooms are exquisite. The morning breakfast was awesome and the change from one room to another added to the fun. We also had dinner with friends and lunch with family and we were treated with nothing but professionalism. The food was top quality and worthy of the Inn's ratings. We highly recommend staying and look forward to our future stay.

Staff very attentive. Dining menus flexible, good for those with some food allergies

This was a first for both my wife and I. The room was amazing. We had a romantic dinner in the dining room with a great view of the gardens. The breakfast was also fantastic. We will certainly be coming back!

We celebrated our 7th anniversary at English Inn, which is where we stayed after our wedding. It was an amazing experience where we were able to enjoy our room and our time connecting with each other, plus a delicious breakfast. I highly recommend and we're looking forward to celebrating year 8 here as well!

We stayed there twice and enjoyed it. I hope we can do it again.

The English Inn was new to me. It was such an amazing respite for a night. The history and charm of the place was so appealing. The food was exquisite and the service was wonderful. The gardens will be even more amazing as summer arrives. I'd definitely go back!
4.8 on April 21, 2016
This was the first time my wife and I were away from the kids overnight in 17 years. Loved the quaintness and history this Inn provided. Staff were wonderful and even lead you to your room and explained everything. Really enjoyed our stay.

Every person on staff went out of their way to take care of us during our stay. Food and drinks were exceptional, the room was very comfortable, and the stay was a memorable one. We will be returning.

My husband and I stayed here overnight to celebrate our birthday. We had a fantastic time!!! The bedroom was comfortable and the service was average. However, the food was absolutely delicious!!! From appetizers, dinner to breakfast everything was very enjoyable.
5 on March 30, 2016
We did an overnight stay for my birthday. Atmosphere throughout is one of bygone elegance. Fine dining included a pianist playing nice background tunes. Food preparation for meals is one of their best points.
5 on March 28, 2016
Our room was amazing, the restaurant where we had dinner was very romantic and the food was to die for.

The English Inn is one of my favorite places in the world. EVERYTHING is pleasant and well done. I have stayed regularly for the last 8 years and will continue to for years to come! :)

We lodged in the Crimson Room. The room was very nice and we enjoyed the fireplace. Dinner in the Inn was amazing. Food was prepared perfectly and it was a calming dinning experience. We would highly recommend staying & dinning here!

The best food we've ever had!

Beautiful location behind the b&b to walk along the water. Loved that the rooms were accessible separately from each other, rather than all in one house.

Outstanding facility, staff & restaurant!
5 on March 09, 2016
We lodged in the Crimson Room and we very impressed. Beautiful view and spacous room with fireplace. Supper in the dinning room was amazing with a table side prepared Ceaser salad. We were very please with everything about our stay. Thank you.
4.4 on March 08, 2016
Perfect one day stay. We utilized the entire home, from our start in the pub to a nice dinner near the fireplace in the main dinning room accompanied by the Inn's pianist. We stayed the night and the rooms are as represented, wonderful each one. We enjoyed every part of our stay. The staff is nice and helpful, a delightful combination of good friendly people.

Beautiful inn. We had a high-end room, lovely. So charming. I look forward to visiting when the English gardens are in bloom. Very impressed with my fillet mignon dinner. Don't think I ever had better. Breakfast was special too. And service was fabulous. The atmosphere makes a one-night stay seem longer. :-)

The facility was clean and beautiful. The staff was friendly. It was a perfect place to visit during the holidays.

4.8 on December 24, 2015
The room was awesome. It was very warm and inviting. I am thinking the only down side was the hot water in the shower ran out about 4 minutes into my shower. Otherwise everything was perfect. The staff is very friendly. Thanks for a wonderful stay
4.8 on December 24, 2015
My wife and I had a little pre-Christmas get-away at the English Inn before the craziness of the holidays truly sets in and unfortunately takes us in opposite directions. So this was a weekend to connect a bit, sans kids and pets. The English Inn is a beautiful, historic and well maintained property! We stayed in the Tangerine Room which is actually in a separate little building from the main house - which we very much enjoyed actually for it's privacy. Our room had a good size jacuzzi tub in the bathroom as well as a comfy king size bed, complete with gas fireplace and a deck which I imagine would be just awesome to sit out on in warmer weather months. The decor held true to the overall theme of the property and was warm and inviting overall. The only slightest thing missing that I could think of is that there was no dresser or chest to unpack our clothes into. We were only there for two nights, so living out of a suitcase was not a big deal, but I imagine anybody staying longer - if they are anything like me - enjoys the idea of unpacking and "settling in" for their stay. Aside from that though, I would not change a thing. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I very much see a future weekend getaway in warmer months when my wife and I can come back and explore the grounds further.
5 on December 03, 2015
My wife and i had a wonderful time. The service and food was excellent. Our room was beautiful and we will definitely be coming back!

Even though we arrived late on Sunday night the staff was very accommodating. The prime rib dinner and breakfast were fabulous. Loved the jetted tub. Can't wait to come back!

Great staff very helpful and excited, you could tell they love working there. The rooms were even better than advertised. Front building lights at night made it a little brighter than normal for sleeping but still worth it.

5 on September 03, 2015
The English Inn Bed and Breakfast was an amazing place to spend our first night as a married couple. We ordered take out from the restaurant and everything was impeccable. We cannot wait to come back and enjoy another night or two with you! Thanks again for such wonderful memories.
5 on August 18, 2015
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at the English Inn and it was wonderful again! My company has held 3 workshops for our clients at the Inn and we will be back again. Our clients (credit unions from the surrounding areas) love coming here for our events. The Medovue Hall is brightly lit, great acoustics, and has a wonderful area down stairs for dining. Erik (Inn Owners Son), David (GM), and Mike (bartender) are so welcoming and make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The food in the restaurant is delightful and delicious; if I were local I would come here just for dinner. Each time we come back there is something new to explore on the grounds and upgrades throughout the property. Thank you to all of the staff at the Inn for making our guests and us feel so special! We will be back! Sincerely, Mary k Monise, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

My husband and I wanted to get away from it all for our 5th year wedding anniversary, we had heard a few things about the English inn but did not know what to excepted. We stayed in the Toffee Room and I must say it was the best experience we have ever had, we were amazed that the title in the bathroom were heated. The balcony over looked the river and the out door wedding venue. We always trying to find a place where we can get dressed up without looking out of place and in the Jackson area that is hard to find here we fit right in being dressed up. We booked our dinner through a package with our room. our waiter were right on top of everything.Every few minutes a wait staff would walk pass the table to make sure the table were clear at all time. Dinner were quite and I requested for a table either in the corner or by the window I was so amazed that I got both. We then went down to the tavern and had a couple of drinks it was so nice setting in the out door garden at night with faint music in the back ground while we talked through the night. We have a 4 year old and a 4 month old so just having conversation don't happen much without interruptions Can not say enough about the English Inn would go back in a heart beat!
5 on May 11, 2015
We had our wedding at the English Inn 10 years ago. Daughter graduating from MSU. A PERFECT stay. Wonderful rooms, food and service. The staff could not have been more helpful. Eliot, a manager, gave my wife and I a print of the English Inn as a token to remember our stay. I only wish we lived closer to stay more often. Recommended with out any reservation. Enjoy!!
5 on April 23, 2015
Continental breakfast was fabulous and much more than expected. We received a hot freshly prepared meal, better than most full service breakfasts! Friendly staff and comfortable setting. Nice, soft bed with beautiful linens. We would definitely stay here again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the English Inn--the Croquet cottage room was perfect!

First time to the inn enjoyed very much will come back. Wonderful staff And great food.
4.2 on April 04, 2015
Loved the cottages! Wish there was more than a croquet court for fun stuff to do.
3.2 on March 26, 2015
Stayed at the Ivy Cottage. It was older than I expected and the kitchen needs to be update and so does the LITTLE living room. The bedroom was nice and so was the bathroom. I did notice that when we turned up the heat that the fire place no longer thru out heat. I have to admit I was expecting something else. more update and nicer. The main house where you check in was beautiful and the people were very nice. I rated the dining to met my expectations, but we did not eat there.
3.6 on March 25, 2015
The English Inn is a very beautiful place. This was our first stay at a b&b. We had a very relaxing evening. We had a late lunch so we did not have dinner while there. One very disappointing thing was the tub. The faucet was broke and the jets did not work. With that being something I personally was very excited for I was extremely disappointed. If we decide to go back we will not be staying in the Cambridge suite and I will try the tub out when we first arrive. We were very impressed by everything else and enjoyed the evening. I just wish the tub would have worked.
5 on March 23, 2015
From the slate-tiled roof to the rich wood decor of the Pub in the basement, the details are intimate and welcoming in this beautiful and well-run Inn. If the upscale dining is a but much for your taste, enjoy the more casual offerings in the pub. Our favorite was the steak baguette.
4.8 on March 16, 2015
Everything was perfect - although the breakfast options are very limited and exactly the same every time.
5 on February 22, 2015
We stayed in the Buttercup Cottage and it was absolutely perfect. If you can, you should splurge for the "Ultimate Getaway package". We had a 5-course meal with a bottle of champagne, outstanding service, a relaxing night in, and a nice breakfast to top it all off. The room was beautifully furnished and very clean. It smelled very pleasant right when we walked in. The fireplace lets out a lot of heat, which was great for a Mid-February stay. The jacuzzi was hands down the best part! Clean, cozy, and relaxing. We are already making plans to go back.
3.4 on February 22, 2015
Very nice except the cleanliness of the light fixtures in the dining room dirty and crooked, two easy fixes..Cob webs in the cabin. Too many people running around dining area when people are trying to eat. I actually got cold because of the walking back and forth back and forth back and forth constantly. Food was very good thou. my complements to the chef !!
4.8 on February 19, 2015
We stayed in the Windsor room and it was absolutely beautiful. From the fireplace to the four post bed and the period appropriate furniture, the room was great. The dinner and overall atmosphere of the Inn was also amazing. Thanks for a great experience. We will definitely be back!
4.8 on February 17, 2015
My Husband and I celebrated our anniversary with an overnight at the English inn and were very happy with our stay. We were in one of the new croquet cottages and found it to be delightful, private and spotless! The dinner we had was delicious and the service was outstanding. Breakfast was not nearly a tasty as dinner, I chose the broccoli fritatta that was cooked too long but I'm sure if I had asked, they would have replaced it with another choice. We are looking forward to returning to The English Inn.
5 on January 27, 2015
Everything was great! Nice place for an overnight stay with wonderful breakfast!

I held my employee's Holiday Dinner at the English Inn three years ago and greatly enjoyed the service, food and staying over night in the Windsor room. This year my Service District won the best District of the Year Award and decided to really celebrate by having the Holiday plus Dist. of the Year award Dinner at the English Inn once again. Not disappointed, enjoyed food, service and a different room this time around. Can't wait until next year's party.
3.2 on January 07, 2015
My wife and I stayed in the Ivy Cottage for a night and it smelled pretty rough - perhaps off season its not used that much but there was a very strong smell that resembled garbage. I also thought they could have had a curtain or something over the bathroom double doors for a little privacy. It is a whole cottage, but i felt it was overpriced based on those two things alone. That being said, nice bed and the bathroom was actually nice and pretty sizeable. Would love to go back in the summer and perhaps get a room in the main house - the grounds are very mice and it would be fun to just stroll around. The restaurant was great - very classy and the service was great also. The room itself reminded me of being in a very ornate railcar from the 1800's (thats a positive - its not small or anything) - its nicely decorated, and the wood throughout is very rich. Fireplace was excellent as well. The food - everything that we ordered was excellent! We were very pleased and would actually go back just to eat. A lot of people were very pleased with their stays at the Inn, including in the Ivy so perhaps just a little focus was lost due to it being off season - i would hope that more care could be taken to insure its aired out a little for the next visitors.
4.4 on January 06, 2015
Having been married at the English Inn, we make it a point to celebrate our anniversary every year at the Inn, selecting a different room each time. This year was superb. The Winsor room is outstanding and the evening meal was out of this world. We will be coming back.
5 on January 04, 2015
My boyfriend and I stayed in one the the cottages for his birthday. We walked to dinner where we are in the pub. The food was amazing and drinks were great! The bartender was very friendly and on top of the service. It was so nice to just walk back to our cottage which had a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub! I would recommend this experience to anyone.
5 on January 01, 2015
We enjoyed a quick getaway to this charming Inn just before Christmas. We stayed in the Emerald Cottage and really enjoyed our visit. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and encouraged to roam around and look at all the other spaces. We really loved the charm of the main building and we loved the new, beautifully appointed and modern amenities of the cottages. We are looking forward to visiting sometime in the future to explore the expansive grounds.

This was our 40th wedding anniversary and we have stayed there for several others in the past. Dinner was excellent and service was top rate. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants an elegant getaway.
