Top quality everything. Refined luxury; beautiful gardens; superb breakfast; staff is extremely courteous and gracious. Expensive, but very worth it. The many fountains with their soft sound of falling water made it all just that much better.

We loved our stay at the Simpson House Inn. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the grounds are beautifully kept, the breakfast was awesome and the room clean and comfortable. I wish that we could have stayed longer. So nice, don’t hesitate.:0)

The room was not what we expected and was not worth the price. The hotel location is fine, the garden is nice and the evening light buffet was good except for the red wine. The breakfast service was also good.

Response from Tony P, General Manager at Simpson House Inn
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Go24399306022, Thank you for staying at the Simpson House Inn. We are sorry that the room was not what you expected and don't find that the refreshments, hors d'oeuvres with wine, desserts and plated breakfast or room service does not add to the value of the room. We have Victorian Style Rooms, Carriage Barn Rooms and English Cottages to choose from - so please call me direct to book another room that will exceed your expectations.

Not sure if all rooms have a fridge, but the one we stayed in did ( small, but it did the trick)

I did call and they got back to me immediately. They don't have a room with 2 beds for me and my sister sadly. Such a beautiful place though – I would love to visit with my husband!
