The whole place is a bit pretentious... the staff are almost obnoxious and will sing praises to the founders... I felt that the staff were actively working for tips rather than being genuinely friendly and hospitable. Another annoying thing: the staff will be ah-so--breathless about the Reynolds - yet nobody will mention the fact that the estate couldn't have existed...

We had a very special visit to Graylyn Estate! We were on our way to Raleigh and decided to stop here since it looked so beautiful! Everything was immaculate from the grounds to the lodge and the Mews. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We ate in the pub and loved the atmosphere and good appetizers. The whole experience...

Our family stayed at Graylyn during our daughter's visit to Wake Forest. Our room was located in the Mews just up the road from the reception area. Rooms were quiet and well appointed. The rate included breakfast which was quite nice.

Our stay at Graylyn was wonderful with one minor issue. Alarm went off in the morning was ear piercing load and took awhile to get off. Other than that would recommend. Hopefully an issue that doesn't happen often

I was in town to visit my daughter at Wake Forest, and had wanted to stay at Graylyn for several years. It met or exceeded all of my expectations. The room was beautiful, all the public areas are stunning, but the customer service was above and beyond all the rest. The gentleman at the front desk was initially disappointed to...

Having been to Graylyn before, I had some expectations. As others write, it is luxurious in many aspects - the staff, the grounds, the ambience, the breakfast. The rooms are more bed and breakfast chic and sufficiently comfortable for a good night's sleep. However, there are major limitations if you are a business traveler needing to get work done. The...
