We attended a wedding at The Riverview and stayed at the Avon Old Farms Hotel. We highly recommend it because our experience was excellent, from the moment we checked in was nothing but great service. The young lady at the Reception desk, not sure if the name was Jenna, welcomed us with a smile and was very professional, to the...

We were in town with a large group for a wedding. Our room was in the Annex, room 434. The room was very spacious and very clean. Most impressive was the thick, soft bathroom towels. We only stayed overnight, so we didn't get to experience all that the hotel had to offer. I can tell you the staff is extremely...

Looks like a charming New England Inn but the rooms are small and dark more like a motel. The many of the hotel staff were not friendly and after our first night we were moved for a scheduled maintenance. We booked the room for a week so they knew we'd be there and shouldn't have booked us in that room....

Nice but not great. Was a quaint place but the layout of the hotel is very strange. Rooms were nice but not great. Stayed here on a biz trip and it will do fine for a quick trip. Just don't have high expectations.

My family stayed for a friends wedding. When we lived in CT, this was the place to stay. We all were extremely disappointed at the accommodations.
