Martin Hill Inn
Looking for a romantic spot for my fiancee and I to spend her birthday, I decided to book a room at the Martin Hill Inn. While there were some enjoyable parts of our stay, overall it was somewhat of a disappointment.
We arrived on a weekday afternoon and was greeted by Erika, who was polite and friendly. She showed us to our room, the Nightingale, located in the guest house next door to the main Inn.
chose the Nightingale room due to the fact that it had a king size bed
- which we both appreciate. The corner room is located on the first
floor and was decorated in an oriental style, with flowered wallpaper
and shades of mauve throughout. There was much natural light with the
many windows throught the room. An antique writing table is available,
along with two arm chairs with a small table between them. A large mahogany
English armoire sits in the corner of the room. Also, a small flat-screen
television is affixed to the wall. The room was clean, but somewhat
small. The bathroom was extremely small, with a shower stall but no
Weary from our night, we made our way to the main Inn the following
morning for breakfast. We met our innkeeper, Margo, who was very nice
and personable. Coffee, juice and water was available for us to drink.
Breakfast started off well, with a very light and tasty mango mousse.
The food following that was adequate, but nothing overly interesting
or especially memorable - corn meal blueberry pancakes and maple syrup,
a sausage patty and some watermelon.
The Martin Hill Inn had some highlights - but, overall, I had to say
that we were somewhat disappointed in our stay there. While
servicable, it didn't stand out as a place we would want to go to again.
