Nice Room and Spaces but No Breakfast, and Restaurant Not Open

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 20, 2023
The room is super clean and super maintained, with fantastic soaps and shampoos. Ton of pillows. But no coffee maker in room (it does have a small fridge). They do have coffee downstairs... which gets to something else... despite some two hundred bucks or close per night depending on what day you are here, it does not come with breakfast anymore, nor is the restaurant at the hotel open on Sunday or Monday or Tuesday. At all. And nothing is close. So, it's a luxury destination but really misses on that account. They will sell you something to toss in a microwave sitting next to the coffee urn, but, well, that just doesn't work for a couple hundred a night in an area full of lodging. Also, this place seems to host a lot of weddings, and parking can be a challenge as the other businesses in the old factory complex have signs against hotel folks parking in their spaces. Choose wisely, my friends.

Adult family road trop - mom at 90, "kids" in 60s.
Lovely property, and VERY nicely reclaimed/ redone.
Rooms are roomy, side chairs comfortable. Rooms VERY quiet - great place to catch up on sleep.
Restaurant is outstanding. Excellent foot, we found the prices reasonable. Ample portions - not teeny pieces of food artfully arranged.
Coffee in the lobby in the AM - the coffee is outstanding.
No breakfast here, but a fridge in each room.

Room tip: No breakfast (but excellent coffee, and tea selection). Refrigerator in each room. Bring yogurt.

Staff were excellent all around. Room was noisy. Parking was a challenge at f I rst but resolved when lot for a business opened up to hotel guests for the weekend. Very thin walls. Kids next door were bouncing on the.beds for hours. Had a few creepy crawlers in the room. Hotel has a cool vibe but the sound issue would be a reason not to return for me

The room with two queen beds was very spacious. The bathroom was also large, with a great shower. The lobby is attractive with a large fireplace, and the on-site restaurant is very good—we highly recommend dinner there.
The lone elevator is very slow, so take the stairs which are wide and well lighted and creaky. In fact, everything is creaky. At 1:45am we were awakened by the loud creaking floor above us as the guest was walking around. Or maybe it was a ghost.
There is a lot of history here and interesting photos dating from the 1800s framed throughout the property. We would definitely stay here again, but would ask for a room on the top floor.

Room tip: Stay on the top floor.

Everything about the wedding at the Cork Factory was lovely and well presented. The food at the rehersal dinner was excellent. Wedding meal and appetizers were also excellent.

Parking was fun, but manageable. It is in downtown Lancaster, so typical of an historic town, streets are narrow and space is limited, so that pretty much explains the parking situation. I didn't hear of anyone at the wedding who did not find a parking place on site. There were two weddings that night.

THE ROOM: we had a suite, which had a separate living room. I never found it on their website, but our sofa was a sleeper sofa. We ordered sheets, etc. enabling us to have a mini-sleepover for two grandchildren who are cousins. The suite was nice for little get togethers.

The windows in the bedroom have blinds AND drop down shades to block the outdoor lights. It took us a bit to figure it out. The shades are like the ones you see in hospital rooms. Actually, very clever solution for the situation.

Our room was quiet. I heard some hallway noise when people were yelling, but our door was probably open. You know how you move the lock thing over to keep the door open so visitors can come on in.

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The wedding planner was amazing. For example, four bouquets instead of six were delivered, she took care of it. Less than an hour later the missing two arrived.

The venue is a beautiful wedding setting. All the events were a short walk away from our room. It is quiet and inviting.

What was there not to like?
My only complaint was that with the brick walls next to the bed, I whacked my toes twice getting out of bed. Learned quickly not to extend my foot when getting up.

Room tip: Get the suite if you have a family event there and you want visitors. Reserve your room asap if you are going to attend a wedding.
