We had a Reserve room in the Vinifera Inn. The Inn is the newer part of the hotel and is attached to the Castle. Beautiful grounds and the Castle is quite beautiful. The room overlooked Seneca lake and faced east, so each morning we saw the sunrise. Room was very spacious with a king size bed, large 2-person spa tub in the room, 2-person shower in the bath, large coffee maker with very good coffee, small refrigerator (with 2 bottles of water that were replenished each day), TV, and a gas fireplace. The mattress, linens and bedspread are what you would find in an average hotel and Belhurst should consider upgrading (higher thread count, comforter in place of a bedspread, etc.). No wi-fi in the room; you need to go to to the lobby to access the internet. The hotel should consider replacing the TVs with flat screen hi-def televisions. In general the room was very clean, but the grout in the shower had mold and needs a good bleaching. One of the sinks had no stopper. Refrigerator and heating/cooling units were very noisey. If the hotel advertises itself as a romantic getaway--I think quieter refrigerators and heating/cooling units would be ideal. Front desk staff was not friendly, but very reserved, and did not make any extra effort. If there are wine spigots (with free wine available) someplace in the hotel, as another reviewer noted, it is a well kept secret as the staff did not tell us about it nor did we see them. The hotel's location is excellent---2 miles from downtown Geneva and close to a number of wineries. For the price, I expected a hotel that I could rate as outstanding, but I was disappointed. There are a number of nice touches. We had dinner in the pub one evening and it was average. Breakfast was a buffet with made to order omlettes (very good) and a large selection of other breakfast food, but the the hot food was rather cool.
