Wonderful stay! Easy, contactless check-in and out. Room and bed was comfortable and great location- close to downtown Staunton.

We wanted to get away for the night for my bf’s birthday and had a wonderful stay. The room was clean and comfortable. All the staff were super helpful and welcoming. We chose to enjoy the spa for massages and facials, and the services did not disappoint. The spa is so relaxing and they massage therapists we truly phenomenal. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we feel so refreshed.

The service was excellent and the property is beautiful.

Great hotel, would definitely stay there again. The staff was super friendly and the place was very clean.

Absolutely loved discovering this gem of a hotel! I had no idea when we booked the room that it was once a Psychiatric Hospital serving western Virginia. The rooms and property have been very well renovated. My wife and I also had breakfast in the bistro which was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here and would look forward to coming back here again the next time we are passing through the area.

Great stay! Convenient, good location, wonderful history !

Someone needs to get an award for remodeling such a magnificent structure. The blend of old with new was like staying in a museum. And so nice they allow pets and have a huge front lawn and stream to walk a dog.

This is an amazing historic destination accommodation. It was a mental institution built in the 1820's, but it was built with the residents' best mental health mind and we experienced little if any bad vibes here. You can walk the entire grounds, most of which contains not-yet-renovated old buildings that were part of the institution. We were lucky that the developer and his wife were there while we were. They gave us the 'family tour', and the history and beauty that remains in everything they have saved and incorporated into the design and decor of the place is truly unique. The view from every corner of every floor is pure Art. I couldn't stop snapping photos and plan to write a blog article about the place. The price is very affordable, particularly considering it includes a picturesque European breakfast (served until 10) that can happily satisfy you for the morning.

Beautiful place in calm setting with fascinating history

We really enjoyed our stay at this very unique historic hotel. We stayed in a Deluxe Room with soaking tub and enjoyed a bath after spending the evening downtown at the theater. Other reviewers have remarked disappointment in the breakfast -- while the room with the food was small and there was no hot food, the pastries, yogurt, cereals, and meats and cheeses filled our needs. The prosecco at check-in and lavender cookies at bedtime were lovely touches, and our stay here was well worth the money, and we've already recommended it to others.

A wonderful experience overall. The staff were incredibly helpful, welcoming, and friendly. The room was well designed and clean. Breakfast included delicious good quality pastries. Everything was great. I would enjoy staying here again.
