How to Get There
A beautiful resort in the Berkshires situated on a hill overlooking a golf course and the Berkshire mountains. It was a wonderful resort before construction...( A 4 stars facility). Hyatt and Miraval Spa have bought the property. During construction, there are a limited amount of rooms, too much construction noise and not enough choices for eating. Sloans Tavern food is mediocre and there was no restaurant for breakfast. There was a continental breakfast offered on the main floor of the Carriage House, but really no place to sit at a table and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Prices will also skyrocket once the construction is over. The golf course rates a five or 6 out of ten and will never be better... I've been staying here for for over 35 years. The outdoor pool is small and you have to get there early to get chairs especially on weekends when outside members use the facility. Cranwell does have a lovely spa with an indoor pool as well. Miraval is building their own outdoor pool and Spa only for use by the Miraval spa guests. 2020 is when I recommend occupancy after all the constuction is over. Tanglewood being so near, it's an ideal place to stay. I'm sure that this will easily become a 4-5 Star resort again.
The Cranwell telephoned to advise that they would be lowering our room with our reservation "based on feedback" they they had received. Okay - great - no problem. Well, they must have received an earful! And all to keep 18 rooms available in what amounted to being in the middle of a construction site. Signage was awful, and the maintenance worker at the main building when we arrived on Sunday was just as rude as he could be when we went to check-in. As it turns out, the registration desk was temporarily set up in the Carriage House foyer, but you wouldn't have known that until you found the right building and went inside. Additionally, the front desk staff that Sunday (July 21st) was just as rude and condescending when we complained about the noise in the room above ours. I was first told to "give them 5 minutes to settle down, that they just returned from the pool." One and a half hours later, after dinner, the ball was still being bounced over our heads, and I approached the registra, again. Again, she said, "give them 5 minutes to settle down, that they just returned from the pool." (Is this how they are trained??) I reminded her that she had said that an hour and a half ago, and she again said, "Just give them 5 minutes, and if they are still making noise, I'll phone them." Five minutes go by, and again I return and asked her how many times do I need to ask her to address the issue. She said that she would call - in five minutes. (You just can't make this up. It's not as if she was busy - just ask Luis.) I asked if she could just call "now," so that I didn't need to make another trip to her in five minutes - she continued to say that she would, but she didn't. It took her assistant to finally just pick up the phone and tell the customer that the people below were complaining about the ball being bounced. He apparently said that he would take care of it, and wouldn't you know - the ball stopped bouncing. Was that so hard??? Luis, the bellman and driver, was the best part of our stay.
The Mansion and grounds are absolutely spectacular! Such and inviting and elegant atmosphere! I attended a conference in October, and appreciated the relaxing ambiance and the views. The meals served in the Mansion were delicious! There was some very visible construction going on, but I could not hear it in the Mansion. It did detract somewhat when walking the grounds. I stayed in the Beecher building which was nice but the room was definitely dated. I felt the prices were way too high for the quality of the room which was mediocre and the construction paraphenalia around. Overall a nice stay, though.
