The property has not been well kept. The person running the inn is charging too much for the condition, service, and overall appearance of this property. Coffee cups were dirty, juice glasses were dirty bed linens were dirty also. No real attention to detail. Breakfast was a bowl of Cheerios and some fruit. We declined. Not thrilled to be awakened at 1 am to sex sounds coming from the spa room. Ick. Glad I didn’t schedule a massage. Too many other quality places to stay. Don’t recommend this place.

Very disappointed with the Henderson Castle. Understaffed (not the staff’s fault), tiny television with streaming only, toilet barely emptied after multiple flushes, shower head was filthy, could not find anyone in the AM to check out or get our pre-ordered breakfast. The pictures of the actual room on Travelocity are extremely deceiving.

The "Castle" is a beautiful late Victorian home. My room was nice -- spacious bathroom, lovely bed. But the window air conditioning unit was not attached properly, so that the bottom half of the window where it was installed was wide open (the accordion part was not attached). I asked about it, and was told that someone would look at it and that I'd have a heater in my room to compensate for the cold air coming in. When I came back, the accordion part was reattached, but there were still gaps at top and bottom, and no heater. The breakfast area was also beautiful, and we had good service. But buyer beware: the breakfast is wildly overpriced. If you want anything off the menu other than scrambled eggs and toast, you'll wind up paying $25 or more for it. A friend joined me for breakfast, and wanted an omelette; he was told that for him, not a guest at the Castle, the price would be $55 -- for an omelette!

In town for a wedding. I thought, "Why not stay at a historic home converted into a BNB. It could be romantic". Bad decision. We trudged through icy driveway in a steep incline badly in need of salting. We were made to sign a "guest Waiver" for some unknown reason. We were shown to what they call "Cottage Suite". It's a carriage house converted into living quarters with decor reminiscent of your least favorite nephew's garage pad. The rugs were filthy and in need of vacuuming. Dust on the blinds and shelves. Large Ikea bookshelf with dusty books clearly taken from local library discontinued dump. The room was cold and no thermostat in the room. There was no mention in the listing of the fact that the bathroom had no tub, shower had no stall but simply a curtain in the middle of the room and NO HEAT. The light switch didn't work until a switch was flipped in the common hallway outside the room. The bed was a one mattress type you find in student dorm rooms. The bedding smelled dusty and mystery red stain on the sheets. Paint cracks all around the room and several stink bugs in the light fixture crawling around. All the fixtures were the low end Home Depot type so I'm at a loss why we signed a waiver. My wife and I took lots of pictures and made funny post on social media. It was a hit. We both agree that the main house looked nice and that maybe they shouldn't be listing the "Cottage Suites" for guests. The sit-down complementary breakfast was nice.

Not as advertised

Was not made clear that rooms available were not in the castle, but we're down the hill and across the street in an older home not up to standard. Not enough hot water, room door did not close or lock easily, cleaning person did not clean bathroom well at all (hair all over the floor and toilet seat, muddy footprint in shower). Bed was comfortable but very tall and should have had a step available. Snotty check-in gal, but friendly checkout clerk. Won't be back. PW
