From our arrival to departure the staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. This old building gives a very unique atmosphere which added so much to a great evening out. I hope anyone who ventures to this establishment also enjoys it as much as we did.

Was in town for family but ate breakfast (brunch) at this lovely hotel. I couldn't get a room on short notice. Have stayed here many times.

Stayed here over Halloween night to see if we could "scare up" some ghosts lol! Couldn't bring myself to stay in one of the "haunted" rooms, but stayed just a few doors down from them. Still was spooky enough! Beautiful old hotel. Nicely redone bathrooms. A lot of antiques. It's not a place to just stay overnight, it's a destination... More

Breakfast had great selection of foods and service was good. Eggs Norwegian was terrific and if you want Southern comfort food, try the biscuit and gravy. This may be the perfect biscuit - slight crunch on the outside and moist and tasty inside.

My husband and I were on a "staycation" in Lewisburg and started our evening with drinks on the front porch of General Lewis Inn. WOW, it was awesome. The rocking chairs along with a slight breeze and delicious wine and cocktails made it the perfect place to start our evening out. My only complaint was the bartender. Not the friendliest... More

Service extremely slow and several items ran out on Sunday brunch and had to order "something else". Slow slow slow but food was good except for watermelon in fruit salad was bad.

My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights. Each room was as unique as the hotel. Our room was lovely and so spacious. It was a bit nor in cost but worth it. Walking through the hall you could see other rooms. Each was beautifully decorated and all were unique!

We are so happy to see this establishment under new ownership and improving everything. We had a wonderful dinner on the veranda with white table cloth and fresh flowers. Service was very good. And the food was excellent. We had Rainbow Trout, which was cooked to perfection.

Thank fauljo
