I wish I could say nothing but good things about the Hob Knob because all of the staff we met were gracious and kind and I hope my critiism will inspire an effort to do a little better. We spent two nights in mid February at the peak of the high season and I appreciate that the rooms at the Hob Knob are much less than at many of the other resorts but many small details at the Hob Knob that individually would be easy to overlook but in there totality left us dissatified.
The walkway to our deluxe room with fireplace was not shovelled but a narrow twisting path lead to our room. A musty smell overwelmed us on entry.The heating system was in fact the gas fireplace that lit up the room at all hours day and night making sleep difficult. The soap provided was tthe smallest sliver of soap imaginable. The only other toiletry was a tiny capsule of shampoo. No conditioner here. The toilet didn't work. The telephone in our friends room didn't work. The television must have been 30 years old. The room is in desparate need of updating.
The Hob Knob is very well located with a beautiful property and we had a great view from our room. The Hob Knob has so much potential as a great place to stay for adventurers visiting Stowe looking for basic accommodation, at a good rate, in a great location. I hope management can make this happen.
