The Elms Hotel is a great place to just get away and relax. We only stayed one night, so did not make use of the excellent spa facilities, but we did enjoy the beautiful grounds, outdoor pool, hot tub, and indoor lap pool. Also the staff was very accomodating, especially the concierge (I believe her name was Pat?) who gave...

Two of my friends and I have been trying to find a time to get away for a quick girls weekend. Our schedules conspire against us so once we found a date we wanted to go somewhere special. I made our hotel reservations through TripAdvisor (first time and loved it) and I called to make our spa appointments. I received...

Fun getaway with the girls. We came Friday and missed the wedding crowd. We took the ghost tour led by Jay (amazing) and had a lot of fun! The spa was amazing - the services were fantastic and the ladies/gentlemen were so professional. After this trip, I now know why I should splurge on good spa services. We want to...

My husband and I enjoyed our time at the grotto, go on a weekday - we've heard Fri-Sun are very busy! Dry sauna, steam sauna, hot tub, steam room and cold plunge shower to choose from with very comfortable lounge chairs! The exfoliation bar was a treat, but our couple's massage was the best. Nice locker rooms, serene waiting room...

The company I work for recently held its annual business meeting and banquet at the Elms. Set in a very unpretentious small town, the hotel and spa was less than what I expected, but much more than what I had imagined. Proudly boasting five floors (the fifth floor being the equivalent of penthouse suites, accessible only with a special key...

How was our stay? Meh. Not amazing but not awful. Upon arrival we were greeted in a monotone manner. Not enough to be rude but not welcoming. We had a standard room with two queen beds. It was very small and only has a shower, no tub. The mattresses and pillows are amazing though; best hotel mattress ever! I would...

Our first experience at the Elms, and we will be back. Not to far from home, but far enough to totally relax. Spa and grotto are must dos. Not too many dining options in the town, but its so nice, you dont want to leave to venture out!

I needed a mental break from my stressful world and I got it at the Elms Hotel and Spa! Everything was amazing - The outdoor pool was filled with people sipping cocktails and enjoying life. The heated indoor lap pool/hot tub was dark and relaxing. The restaurant was pleasant and although the menu was very limited, the chef was able...

When you first walk in to The Elms, you are vaguely reminded of The Stanley, made famous by Jack Nicholson in The Shining. "Here's Johnny." In fact, when we were checking in to the hotel they were actually playing "Nearer My God to Thee" in the lobby. A little odd. But have no fear, the staff is very competent, the...

It's a very nice facility. Our room was excellent. Very clean and well appointed. The pool and the grounds are wonderful. Unfortunately, we stayed away from the hot tub because a group of people who were smoking and obviously brought in their own beer cans did not make it looking too inviting. We also had to endure a neighbor's late...
