“New Ownership and a superb place to stay”
Reviewed 23 June 2010

My husband and I stayed at the inn many times in the past. This was the best stay at The Georgian Inn of Somerset yet. They are under new ownership and the renovations are great. New paint and decor, that didn't take away from the age of the house. The atmosphere is great and you feel like your at home. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food was awesome. I would suggest if you go to Somerset you need to check out the inn and check in and stay the night. The weekend of June 24 to the 27 is there grand opening, because of the new ownership. My husband and I are planning to attend. They have one of a kind creations coming out of the kitchen and also a new dinner chef.

The first impression was that of a newly remodled space, however this quickly faded when the food and service came into play.

The food was undercooked and had to be sent back to be redone, the staff acted as though we were intruding on thier personal time.
The owner refused to admit that his staff or accomodations was anything but stellar.
He had the allusion that his establishment was not to be questioned.
Steer clear of this place for anything but a bed to sleep in, which you can get for much less down the road.

Now called The Georgian Inn at Somerset and under new ownership as of April 1, 2010. We stayed one night -- after Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob and before the Flight 93 memorial (9/11 plane) -- and it was fine for the $99 price. Claw-foot bath tub without shower was difficult to maneuver for baby boomers, but the NEW OWNERS are remodeling to upgrade to showers in every room. Very clean rooms. The white tablecloth dinner (not included) was delicious and the sunporch breakfast (included) was exquisite. Of the "100 Things Restaurant Staffers Should Never Do" by Bruce Buschel in the New York Times,
they did number 10, but that's okay -- they did number 17, and that's not okay. Also on site is a tavern/bar, which we did not experience. The new owners seem to be professional and responsive. The female half is delightful and still working as a nurse. The male half is willing to go to Walmart with his staff's requests. We were pleased to see a wireless router on the table with the complimentary Keurig single cup coffee/tea/hot chocolate maker in the hallway. Give your money to these fine people than to a hotel chain. You can see the building from the PA Turnpike at Somerset -- high on the hill.

Stayed here in early January while xc skiing. We were treated to an upgraded room. The restaurant served an excellent meal. The problem is that this hotel is used by young downhill skiers who are inconsiderate of others. At 2am, I was awakened by talking in the halls and the next room by young males. This went on to 3:30am. We won't be back.

We stayed for several nights in the Sally Zimmerman room. The Inn is pleasant and large yet warm. It is _old_ as other reviewers and the staff noted more than once. Upkeep seems to be an issue which makes the place seem less than spotless. Our room was very large overlooking the lake (and outlet center). The views in the sunroom at breakfast were amazing. When we arrived back both nights after 10pm all pub and restaurant activitiy had completely ceased. Staff was friendly and non-intrusive. the first morning, we were surprised that our room was cleaned, bed made and towels replaced in the time it took us to eat breakfast!

My husband and I chose to stay at the inn because we were attending a wedding nearby. So really, if you MUST stay in Somerset, I think this is your only choice other than a motel 6. However, after paying aprx. $175.00 for one night and a crappy breakfast, I would have prefered $29.00 for the Motel 6.

When checking in, we went directly to our room and to the bathroom after a 2h drive from Pittsburgh, where we were greeting by a throng of flies, some dead ,but many buzzing. At least 10+ flies in our sunny bathroom and bedroom. My husband immediately began to swat at them, and we thought we had them all, untill we opened the blind more and there were another 10+ at the top of the window! ewww! When we went to the desk as we were on our way to the wedding, we were informed that "it's a 100 yr old house and they (the flies) just woke up, (as it was spring I guess)"...Well, I too live in a 100 yr old house in Pittsbugh, and I do not have 20 flies in my home...and further my husband and I have been to Central Amercian rainforests, Africa in tents, China and other rural B&Bs, and we had more flies combined in the room at the Inn than in all of those other locations.

But, be that is it may, we returned to the Inn, settled down to a peaceful night's sleep (albeit with our insect companions) only to realize the Inn was more of a local "upscale" restaurant/pub than a B&B. We chose to turn on the TV for some background noise to drown out the pub crowd but the tv reception was wavy. Yes wavy as if the TV signal was being brought in by bunny ears and aluminum foil. Although the room was historic, nothing could overcome our experence thus far.

We then got up for breakfast forgetting about the spring fwd time, and called down to apologize to receive a half-hearted "that's ok," follwed with a sarcastic "I wondered where you were." No mention tho in the room of --"don't forget, spring fwd! "

My husband decided to take a shower, something I simply could not stomach in that bathroom, only to be greeted by a pubic hair on the bottom of his shampoo bottle!! UGH!

Our breakfast consisted of sam's club, frozen fruit with freezer burn, a dead carnation on the table, and tea that would "have to be reheated b/c we were late"--way to make a guest feel welcome. The waffles were slightly better than eggo. But the worst came, when I went to use the guest ladies room off of the breakfast room. Apparently by 8am, no one cleaned up from last night's pub guests. The trash was overflowing, the sink's hot water did not come out, as in no water from that tap, cold only...how can that be santiary? There were paper towlels in the sink stopping it up and the soap was a dirty bar rather than a liquid pump.
Hence, $175 later, we traveled back to our 100 year old home, feeling like we needed a shower and a good night's rest.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Easter weekend and had a thoroughly great time.

We stayed in the Sally Zimmerman room which is huge with grand, high ceilings, a huge king bed, nice decor and a Georgian-style bathroom with period features. It was very clean, comfortable and relaxing.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming and they made you feel like you had been staying with them for weeks. We loved the cosy but grand bar and the great wine and cocktail selection. The food was outstanding - homemade, adventurous dishes with plenty of old favourites too. The clientele was mainly local and very friendly so we had some great conversation of an evening. Tasty, filling breakfasts served in the conservatory again with lovely service.

The drinks are a little pricey but the ambiance and service made up for it. Don't expect lots of facilites in the room like a coffee maker, water, mini bar etc. - it really feels like a homely inn/B&B in that respect and suited us down to the ground.

We would heartily recommend this hotel!

  • Liked — Friendly, professional service, great food and drink
  • Disliked — The views and location in the town is a little less romantic than the hotel deserves.
