Stayed here for a multi day conference and was quite pleased with the place. The staff are all very nice, the room was comfortable and the convention food surprisingly good. The only negatives and in my mind they are pretty big are the fitness room is about the quality of an average Hampton Inn's which does not fit with the...

Cannot ask for a more relaxing place to stay and with a well trained staff. We loved our room and the amenities offered. I had a chance to play 18 and the Robert Trent Jones course was fair, even to a 77 year old man. I found the greens to be some of the best I've ever played. Overall, we...

Stayed here during a company convention. The place is located well within Duke University's campus, there is a golf course, this is a golf resort. Not that we got any time to even look at the golf course, but that is a different story. It resembles the inside of a colonial, English quirky hotel even. Laura Ashley like decor, right...

While apparently only ~30+ years old, this hotel exudes the charm of a day gone by. Staff were universally pleasant and helpful, without being intrusive. The food was superb.
