We spent a night here in early May. The hotel is charming and immaculate, with friendly New England service. The lobby is beautiful for such a moderately priced hotel. Coffee and treats are available near the front desk, and there is a generous room service menu. There is also a nice restaurant on the premises, which we plan on trying...

Dated decor though it seems to be the look in the area. All the rooms offer four poster beds that are too large for the low ceilings rooms and make the space feel cramped. When sitting in bed watching tv there is the inevitable post right in the middle of the view - ridiculous really. Restaurant and staff were wonderful....

I stayed at the Avon Old Farms Hotel from May 5 - 8, while traveling with a tour group. We all enjoyed the hotel! The rooms were lovely and the food we ate in Seasons Restaurant was delicious! We also enjoyed a Kentucky Derby party at the bar. When I returned home, I realized I had left a Tervis tumbler...

We stayed here recently for a special occasion for a friend and it was a really pleasant experience. We stayed in the property toward the back - and it was charming. My one complaint would be the bathtub/shower - the shower curtain wasn't long enough to prevent the water from leaving the tub so there was water splashing everywhere. It...

The wife and I stayed 2 nights. Everything was great. The check in was fast and the man at the desk was very polite. The hotel was very clean inside and out. The hotel was very very quite. When walking to our room I could faintly hear something and it was the vending machine. We heard nothing at night and...

We enjoyed our brief stay at Avon Old Farms Hotel. Check in was easy and quick and we loved the grand entrance and the cozy, anitque-y touches in the lobby. We got to our room and it was very nice, unfortunately the bathroom was dirty. There was lots of hair in the tub. We called the front desk and immediately...

The grounds are incredibly easy to find and are located on a lovely piece of land (especially when decorated with a blanket of snow). The attendant on duty upon check-in was friendly and gave us excellent recommendations for dinner. The grab-and-go breakfast was tasty (especially the coffee and the apple pastries) and perfect for a quick start to our day.

We stayed in the Avon Old Farms Hotel for two nights with our two sons. The room was spacious and cosy. It's surrounded by the forest and so quite and peaceful.

We have stayed here twice when visiting family in the area. This is a lovely hotel with very charming and comfortable rooms. Highly recommend if you are staying in this area. Although have not dined in their restaurant, have to say from what I have seen and the enticing aromas certainly hope to when next there!
