How to Get There
We had a last minute road trip because our planned beach trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Dorian and heard about Hotel Domestique, decided to fit it is a splurge night and we were so glad that we did! Simple and nice. We really did feel as if we were in Europe for a fleeting moment!
The pool was nice, needs a few more seat's though.
The inn was beautiful. The onsite restaurant was closed, but they went above and beyond to find alternate dining for us off site. Our room was beautiful, clean and an amazing view! The stocked pantry down the hall was also a wonderful asset that was unusual and appreciated.
Typically we have found that when breakfast is included, you get what they serve. I couldn't believe we had multiple options to choose from! And it was very well done and delicious too!
My husband and I had the chance to stay at HD for 5 nights and we left wishing we could stay longer. We stayed in the accessible room - Bordeaux, it is completely met our accessibility needs. There were so many wonderful touches throughout our stay - champagne on arrival, wine, pop, water when ever we wanted, amazing staff who were very attentive and so personal. It was well worth it to have a guided bike ride of the back roads, could never have done this route with GPS only!
Our only criticism is that they allow dogs, at one point there were 6 dogs on property. If we weren't getting up to go for a ride, the barking dogs would have woken us. Absolutely not a fan of the dog policy.
My husband and I wanted to spend a fun night at a nice hotel with a great dinner the night before we picked up our sons from sleepaway camp, so I booked a room and a dinner reservation at Hotel Domestique for the Friday night before our Saturday pickup. I did this four months in advance of our visit and received a confirmation email right after I booked. When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk did not have our reservation. They said we had booked for Thursday night, and insinuated that it was my mistake. They had our dinner reservation down for Friday night, which was strange because I had booked both over the phone at the same time. We showed them my confirmation email for Friday night, and they blamed their software and said the hotel was full and there was no way to accommodate us. They suggested another hotel and agreed to let us use their pool for the afternoon, so we figured we would enjoy the pool, shower and change at our other hotel, and then return for dinner. As we were leaving, we asked if they would pick us up at our other hotel and drive us to dinner and back, so that at least we could have a cocktail with dinner. (The other hotel was rather far away, down a dark and winding road.) The lady at the front desk said we could Uber...at our own expense. That’s it. Pretty underwhelming response.
We decided to skip out on dinner, given their lack of interest in saving our evening from their own mess.
If you’re hoping for a special night, I’d go elsewhere.
