The Pridwin is one of those rare gems that strikes the perfect balance between the old and the new - like the Chateau Marmont in L.A. They kept just enough old details to keep the history of this majestic place intact, while adding enough modern amenities to make it an incredibly memorable stay. This is probably not the place to...

We were considering many options in NYC for our wedding venue, but after we spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend at the the Pridwin Hotel we decided it was the prefect place and they could provided exactly what we were were looking for so we booked our wedding right away for the following season.

I coordinated and officiated a wedding at the Pridwin. It was a weekend full of events from Friday night cocktails, to a Saturday rehearsal, ceremony, dinner, and late-night dance party, and then we finished with a Sunday brunch. The staff could not have been more accommodating as we took over the hotel to set up, decorate, and coordinate- they made...

We have been hosting weddings for nearly 40 years and have held—until your review—a perfect record of exceptional wedding service and experiences. So we are very dismayed that you were not satisfied with your event. We take great care to organize each wedding from the contract stage through the one-on-one menu tasting where our dining manager met with you to...

Where do I start? The room was incredibly tiny, outdated, and poorly furnished (had to ask for a reading lamp for one side of the bed that lacked a night-table) and sloppily cleaned for the 8 days we were there. We were treated to a microwaved dessert on our first night at the restaurant, that made the peach strudel leathery...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, and we are sorry your stay was unsatisfying. The Pridwin Hotel was built in 1927 and, at the time, had only shared, communal bathrooms. As private bathrooms were added to each room, the size of the guest rooms did decrease slightly, making them small by today’s standards. We also pride...

I had an enjoyable overnight retreat here. Every single staff member was pleasant and friendly. This hotel is old and not like Marriotts and Holiday Inns. But that's part of its appeal! There are no elevators, so you get to climb original staircases. You can see how the building has been updated to adhere to code yet holds true to...

Thank you for your kind review of both the hotel and our staff. We are pleased that you appreciate the old world charm of the Pridwin and we do recognize the fact that the rooms are on the small side as size was lost when private bathrooms were added to each room. However, our hotel, beach and pool are always...

Very disappointed. The Pridwin looked everything like the perfect American dream I was longing for this Summer. At least in the pictures on the web. Reviews were very mixed, but judging from their site, I was taken. I imagined old school elegance, balmy romantic nights with the sound of crickets, long lunches on the wooden porch and that class of...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are saddened that your experience was not what you hoped and expected. On the day of your arrival we had some extreme weather on the North Fork and experienced flash flooding all over the island which, combined with the extreme heat that day, contributed to the “musky smells and...

Beautiful location near sunset beach where there is beautiful beach accessibility. Rooms are dated and can use a major renovation especially the bathrooms pretty scary . They try to make up for it with a complimentary breakfast in the morning. Shelter island is beautiful. Just be prepared for rooms.

We want to thank you for staying with us and very much appreciate the feedback, though we are sad to read of your disappointment. Due to the vintage of the hotel, we are unable to add modern conveniences such as mini fridges and coffee makers to our rooms.
