Went for a Birthday get away for my daughter's birthday. Staff was very friendly. The room was very nice. The pools, hot and cold tubs were very relaxing. We had fun exploring the buildings and grounds. The is so much history and the building design is great to learn about.

My best friend and I went to The Elms for a mid-week getaway and could not have been more pleased! Both of our spa treatments were incredible and their Grotto area was as beautiful as it was relaxing. The menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner were all interesting and diverse with something for everyone; all three meals we had there...

The Elms Hotel is a great place to just get away and relax. We only stayed one night, so did not make use of the excellent spa facilities, but we did enjoy the beautiful grounds, outdoor pool, hot tub, and indoor lap pool. Also the staff was very accomodating, especially the concierge (I believe her name was Pat?) who gave...
