I love the outdoor pool. Two weeks ago when I was here the heater was broken. It's now fixed and the pool is heaven. Beautiful grounds. Love the pine trees by the pool. I also like that it's so close to the Farmington rail trail.

The hotel is having problems with the humidifier and air conditioning so their down pillows, comforters, sheets etc are all damp and smelly. Terrible if you have breathing or respiratory issues. Its like sleeping in a wet bed. Terrible experience. Will never go back!

Serene, delightful highlight to my trip

Pros: Everything: The wooded grounds, the historic architecture. The breakfast bar had especially delicious coffee & fresh baked cranberry nut bread!
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing...except... maybe switch out the non-fat yogurt for low-fat at the continental breakfast bar ;-)
Location: An easy and beautiful drive to both the Bradley Airport and to downtown Hartford. Exploring the beautiful grounds was a treat.
I loved the nostalgic setting, the beautiful wooded grounds in fall colors and view from my window, the historic architecture of the hotel, the library, the option of eating on the patio near the gazebo. There is a full-flow showerhead, comfortable curved bathtub and plenty of hot water. It was easy to access from the airport and the Conn. Convention Center, where I could attend my busy conference and then retreat to this quiet, peaceful place. I met some wonderful people who were also guests and The Hotel staff were most helpful when I had questions about navigating the roads, using their computer, printer, and internet connections. Avon Old Farms Hotel made my four days a delight! I absolutely would do it again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful Fall Retreat

Pros: Beautiful setting, pretty lobby, hallways full of old farm pictures.
Cons: Breakfast area really didn't have tables so you held your food on trays in your lap.
Location: Hiking in Hueblein State Park
We were there for a funeral of a dear friend. When we arrived we were upgraded to a nicer room in the main part of the hotel. The grounds are lovely, their mums added such a fall flair to the beautiful maples. They took 15% off our restaurant and bar bill since we were staying there. Serving staff were very nice as was the Continental Breakfast available in the main lobby. We were able to eat near a gas fireplace which took the chill off the fall mornings.

location desirable

Location was convenient to downtown Hartford without staying in the city. The grounds were serene. Staff were eager to please. The restaurant was wonderful; 5 star quality and service. It's rooms were large. Linens and bedding were superior although the room was slightly dated(window a/c which was hard to control air temperature). We plan on returning for a fall get away. Hidden Gem in the Farmington Valley.

Perfect location for a wedding

Pros: The most comfortable bed ever.
Cons: update bathrooms
Location: We really were quite busy with a wedding and after party was at the hotel so we didn't need to elsewhere.
We are a large family and we spent a lot of down time at the hotel. We all enjoyed the pool and outdoor areas together. It was wonderful to feel like we were very welcome to do so.
