We discovered Glen Ella 10 or 12 years ago. My first attraction was that the only TV was in the lobby of the Inn. My positive attraction was reinforced by the fact that there are no phones in the rooms. The "over the top" attraction was the quality of the food in the restaurant. After a few visits, we became...

We loved this place. The grounds, the inn, and the restaurant are simply great. We stay two days and look forward to going back again in the future. Our king size bed was very comfortable and for a building this old it was extremely well taken care of. Breakfast and dinner both days and everything was terrific. Their large pool...

We stayed two nights here and enjoyed the Inn very much. The setting is very relaxing. There are nice touches throughout. The restaurant was not open for dinner either night but breakfast was wonderful. Would definitely stay again.

Our company rented the entire inn for a staff retreat. They took care of everything, meals included. Everyone had a wonderful time! It was wonderful not having to worry about anything. The service was excellent, and each staff member we met was very kind and attentive. It was like they anticipated all of our needs in advance. Overall everything- the...

Inn keepers & help were very helpful. The breakfast was excellent. However, I use a wheelchair and found that there was no handicap shower available, & not even a bench to use to put in the bathtub to take a shower. The area available for use during the evening hours for tv watching, reading, snacks was down several steps &...
