How to Get There
Avon Old Farms Hotel is THE place to stay when in Avon CT. Our stay was GREAT! Jeffrey, the General Manager, and his entire staff, were so accommodating which resulted in wonderful memories for our family. This was truly our home away from home. Rooms were very clean and beautiful, wedding reception was superbly catered, staff was super courteous, and the grounds were out of this world beautiful! Also the shuttle service to and from the airport made you feel like you were on a historical tour! When in Avon, y'all need to put Avon Old Farms Hotel on your radar and check it out!
Shocked to see hallways and stairwells that were so nicked and chipped with dinged trim everywhere. The plate of the door lock fell off. There is no chain lock on the inside of the door. Room was stifling hot but the controls were removed from the heater. Scant hot water. Bath tub couldn’t hold water so couldn’t give a toddler a bath. 1970s decor that needs a complete refresh. So disappointed in this well known hotel.
I stayed for 2 nights; I enjoyed my stay and would stay again. Some aspects of the hotel could do with updating but overall the hotel is charming. The issues I had were to do with the quality of breakfast in the hotel: buffet food is good for a limited time so we experienced two lukewarm meals.
The other area which was disappointing was customer service. All staff were polite and pleasant when you could find them. For instance a member of staff served 4 beers in the bar on Friday afternoon and then disappeared for 20 minutes so we couldn't pay for the first drink and couldn't order the 2nd. Breakfast waitress brought hot water and a selection of tea bags but no spoon. These are just two examples of small issues that occurred during our stay; they are easily corrected but are so frustrating to the guest. So this is the challenge for the Avon Old Farms Hotel - get the small details right.
