We stayed at the Stoncliffe for a wedding from July 27th-29th. If not for the wedding and us never being there, I do not think I would have stayed here. If we come to the island again, we will not.
We stayed in the Summer house, so that we could have two beds and a fridge. It was my husband and I in 1 bed and a friend in the other.
The place is beautiful and so is the property. The place was clean and well maintained. The staff was nice and accomodating. We asked for an early check-in and we got one.
The property is far from town and the first time you ride the carriage it fun, but after that is long and boring. We do not mind walking, but when you are dressed up and in heels, it is not so fun. The staff made it seem as though the "hotel shuttle" was in the price of the hotel, but it was not.
For the price of the room, I would have expected someone to take our bags to our room and take them back down at check-out. That did not happen. When we arrived, our bags were sitting on the front porch with others, left unattended.
We got a note under our door the night before check-out stating that there were alot of check-out the next day and they needed to know an approximate time. They could just be like most hotels and speed up the process by just slipping the charges under the door and you turn in the keys the next day. So I did call on Saturday night and tell them the time and that we needed a taxi. They never offered to pick-up our bags and nobody was there to do it.
The food was okay. The breakfast was very basic. The food at the wedding was not as good as I expected.
