Amazing experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
i was welcomed at the front gate after that well lets say the staff at check in where neither warm or friendly. Being with my mother and child i expected someone to at least help us to our room but not one gentleman in sight. Rude men who could care less you were spending 300 a night. on check out they charged me an extra night because i did not check […] out in time but it was because my mother and daughter were waiting to be served lunch and they had them wait an hour for set up! i could not possibly leave the room with all the bags myself and like i said no one would dare to offer help! the room itself is pretty and the grounds are nice but giving my daughter a princess experience was not exactly the case what i got was a bad experience and will never go back! a wasted 300 dollars and 2 hr drive!

"A unique historical experience..."
There are few places in America where one can stay in one of the most opulent mansions of the Gilded Age in America, which Oheka was (and is). The chateau and grounds are magnificent, the staff was friendly, food very good, and room spacious (but needing brighter bulbs next to the bed for reading). Check on whether there is a wedding or business retreat […] taking up the guest rooms and public spaces on the dates of your planned visit, and try to book another time. Better to enjoy Oheka with fewer related guests on sit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the visit"
Oheka Castle is a beautiful getaway. Gary walks around, greeting guests, and buying a drink or two. The bar/restaurant staff, however, need to fine tune their people skills. We went for our anniversary and enjoyed a lovely, peaceful night away.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was wonderful! Can't wait to go back. Was there for a beautiful wedding, but would go back if I need a hotel in that area anytime a,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"center of the island"
It was very beautiful and comfortable!! I wish they had a pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I couldn't believe I was actually staying in a castle! The room was at least 1000 square feet with 20 foot ceilings. The grounds were immaculate, food good and the staff very friendly. Definitely a great place to stay. Hopefully I will again have the opportunity. The owner greater me and was very friendly. A very personal touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved it! Stayed one night. Staff very friendly. House and grounds are beautiful. Very friendly owner. Celebrated our anniversary there. Saw a wedding and the only downer was that the wedding guests were noisy returning to their rooms late that night. Will definitely go back, we live close byGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fine hotel with beautiful grounds : restaurant was great and so was the service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a TREAT!"
We stayed there on our first night of our anniversary weekend. We were headed to the LI vineyards. Our flight was delayed, so unfortunately we missed having dinner or drinks in the stunning dining room and bar. The room was charming, the bed was beyond comfortable! Take time to take a bath in the beautiful tub- you are in a castle- so take advantage […] of the experience. We took a nice walk around the gardens and down the long driveway. My only regret was not getting there early to experience the whole facility. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Great Castle Experience"
A beautiful castle, extremely pleasant hotel personnel, and the food was outstanding. And, the owner was very personable. A lovely mid week getaway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price!"
Perhaps it would be a different experience on a weekday, but weddings seem to take priority over hotel guests. Starting with a less than hospitable welcome, we were yelled at TWICE while on our path to and from dinner (guess they thought we were trying to crash the wedding?). It was our 33rd anniversary, which upon booking I informed them of. At this […] level of hotel, we expected at least some form of acknowledgment—Nothing. Dinner was delicious, and our server was nice, but that was the only good thing about our stay. Room was just OK....No comfy chairs or couch and couldn't see out the damaged window! We paid $475 for the room, but 310 seemed like it was one of the lesser ones. I asked to speak to the manager Sat. night, and was told there wasn't one there! Coming from CA, the grounds were green but lacking in beauty—no touches of elegance. We were very disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Couldn't have asked for anything better. Do not discount this hotel based on looks, the price is only a few dollars more than other area hotels and well worth the extra. Beautiful property, grounds, quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Absolutely beautiful. The staff was great, room was beautiful, and staff was very engaging.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Did not know that the TV Series was filming the one night we stayed- would have chosen elsewhere to stay as it was a bit noisy and disruptive - That being said it was still a treat and something differentGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel for alone time"
Did not know that there was going to be a filming. It took away from all the beauty of the hotel. If i would have known this I might not have come.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Looks great, not much substance though"
The castle is very interesting and beautiful, and the rooms were comfortable (although a little cold when we first arrived). The bathroom was also clean and spacious, with a stall shower and a tub. The individuals working in the front office were friendly and attentive, and were quick to help. My girlfriend and I were there for a wedding, and the bartenders […] and waitstaff were mediocre at best. The food was actually not good. Maybe it's because they had a huge wedding to cook for, but I don't think that should be an excuse. The location is relatively secluded, tucked away near a golf course (also very close to Bethpage), and it's about a ten minute drive from a nice walkable shopping district in Huntington Station.

"Dream Come True"
I loved staying at the Oheka Castle. I grew up on Long Island and always wondered what the inside looked like. Gary has done a marvelous job with all the restorations! Will definitely stay again when I return to Huntington.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff, beautiful property"
It was a wonderful experience from the moment we got there. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The hotel and it's grounds are like stepping back in time. This French style chateau has been restored beautifully and the place is steeped in history. My husband, 6 month old daughter and I loved our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No customer service skills"
The hotel was beautiful and the rooms comfortable but the staff had no customer service skills. The most expensive room there was 1065.00 a night and for that kind of money you would think the service there would be a 4 star experience. Other than that, the hotel itself was nice and relaxing. Their valet service crew were ill-mannered. answering you […] like hey or yeah ok. It was not sir or Mr. I guess those days are gone too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Truly awesome place"
First time I ever felt comfortable in a hotel room due to the cleanliness. Beautiful decor and comfortable bedding. Highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel and a even better staff..."
I am thrilled that my friend suggested i stay there.. Upon arriving there, i was immediately impressed with the knowledge and class of EVERY employee! From the person at the front gate, her welcoming style and grace was just the beginning of my great stay there... I am in Real Estate and I found the Castles story quite interesting, and EVERY employee […] LOVED the owners, and their happiness shows in each of their longevity employed there... I wandered to the Bar/Restaurant and I received great service from Rosa (Tended Bar) and my waiter was fabulous as well.. The food was out of this world as well.. Above all, as I sat at the bar, a man introduced himself and spoke with me for quite a while about HIS HOME.. The Castle owner made himself available to EVERYONE and he also introduced me to his guest/friend as we spoke about Real Estate... My only "Complaint" is that it is not the "Easiest" place to navigate if you are disabled, although you do have all of the proper items (elevator) for EVERYONE... The Castle is being renovated currently, so I actually enjoyed my "Walks" from employees leading me out of the Castle , each time explaining what he was doing to expand his wonderful place.. The room was simply gorgeous, featuring a NEW bathroom that had a full size bathtub/ jacuzzi, a separate shower/steam shower, and the toilet is also in a separate room.. Wonderful!! I strongly recommend this place if you are looking for a nicely tucked away secret get a way!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A great place to stay. the hotel, grounds and views are spectacular. we only stayed a few nights and it was a great place to get awat for some quiet time. Everything you need is on premise and the location is great too. Close to many restaurants, waterways, attractions. we are looking forward to staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful property-not quite grand rooms"
Room decor a bit less than one would expect for the price, but very beautiful grounds. Good food in restaurant, but again, not as good as the price should warrant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It certainly is a castle!"
A traveler needs to approach this understanding they are staying in a castle which has been renovated to include hotel rooms. This is as opposed to the property being designed and built as a hotel. In this mindset, a guest will enjoy the large rooms, super comfortable beds and the delicisious food served up in the restaurant. I was there during the […] week and at the end of the season (weddings) so it was quiet but I can visualize the huge events which the Castle is capable of hosting. The fitness room could use a bit of re-arranging with the free weights moved from the back wall where they are difficult to use in a tigh space. Also, I am not sure the poster at the bottom of the stairs leading from the fitness area to the "Man Cave" is appropriate as it can easily seen by the public. Overall, a friendly staff, beautiful grounds and full digital cable as opposed to a select hotel package. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The owner and staff work hard to welcome guests and make sure they are comfortable in this beautiful French chateau. The dinner and breakfasts were great, our room was furnished with beautiful antiques and there is plenty to do in the surrounding areas of Huntington and Oyster Bay. We will stay here again when we are in the area, in addition to recommending […] Oheka to our friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The delux room was what I would class as a standard room so disappointed as the hotel was an interesting experience and a room change was not possible as the hotel was booked out for a wedding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fancy place, but lacking attention to important..."
Had a corner suite. Wireless connection poor, resorted to wired connection instead--very slow. Bed inferior, deeply concaved toward center--you sit on the edge and then literally tumble into the middle of the bed. Hard to turn over in. Poor sleep quality. I reported the problem but the bed/mattress was not changed, problem was ignored. Bathroom facilities […] very good. Air conditioning excellent and silent. Dinner service was good but was way overpriced for the mediocre pre-prepared cuisine delivered; to be fair the restaurant was in a period of transition to a new chef and suppliers; nevertheless, if you cannot deliver what you promise, then don't offer it and gouge your hapless customers. Access for luggage is through an interior construction zone. Overall, I would not return to this hotel in its present state, or definitely not to this suite. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I'd seen this place on TV, so I knew it was beautiful. Still, there was something really special about spending the night in such a beautiful place. Even though ours was the smallest room with no view, we still enjoyed being able to wander the grounds and explore this lovely hotel. It is still a work in progress. You can see the areas that haven't been […] completed, and compare them with the places that have. Once it's all done it will be a showplace. I'm very grateful to the owner for saving this place and making it accessible to us all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet, quaint and comfortable."
My wife and wanted to get out of the city and experience a calm and comfortable few days out east and we got it. We chose two nights during the week hoping to avoid the hectic weekend hub-bub of the weddings and multitudes of people. There were other couples staying in the Castle, but we hardly ran into them. The staff was polite, courteous and easy […] going. The food was quite decedent. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and it was smothered in a red sauce along with every kind of mollusk in the ocean. Large, hearty portions. The room was nice, and the bathroom clean and well laid out. We enjoyed a hot bath with the complimentary bath salts and the sunset in our bathroom was perfect. Overall Oheka Castle is a nice hotel. Where the staff was right on target, the building, rooms and windows are kind of hard to see thru. The windows do not open, and are actually kinda fogged over. The whole place seems to be built on top of the old Castle and its not really a Castle anymore. The decor was kind of old, not old in the sense of antique, but kind of the idea of "old" and "antique looking" from the 80's. The paintings in the hallways and in our room seem to be mostly from the same artists you would find selling their paintings outside the Met in a quick decorative fashion. The point; its not a detail place. Its a carefree, breezy, relaxing spot to go for a getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lots of History/Not much Service"
Nice Hotel, very cool and very old. Lots of architectural detail. Neat little pub, Apps were great, entrees took forever and were brought out cold, way overpriced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Looks can be deceiving."
Disappointed. Nice fitness room, but staircase leading to lower level had hanging picture of female body part more suitable for a fraternity house. Average dining room with extremely limited menu, poor wine list. No room service (except for alcohol and coffee), no in-room mini-fridge. Stayed while movie scene was being shot requiring significant areas […] of interior and exterior to be restricted. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An Amazing Find"
My husband was with me on a business trip so I wanted to do something for him. When I saw the photo of Oheka Castle I couldn't believe it would be that beautiful. This place is AMAZING!!!! When I read other reviews that service isn't good when they have a party, I knew we would be there on a Thursday so it shouldn't be bad. Well, they had a retirement […] party and we were treated like royalty by Christopher!!! He was amazing! And if that wasn't enough, the Owner of the Castle came to our dining table and welcomed us to his home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is gorgeous, it really does feel like you're in a castle. The bathroom in our room was especially amazing! The only reason I put a 4 for maintenance is because the pool was under construction during our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wished I could have stayed longer. Guess the only thing that I would comment on is that room service option would be nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
From the moment we arrived at the outside gates we were "WOW-ED" It felt like you arrived in Europe. We were greeted at the front door, our reservations were all in order. Their was a marble staircase to climb to get to the elevator, we were offered assistance for the luggage, the Castle is filled with artwork and history. The guest room was a couch […] living area, 2 plasma TVs, a Hugh bathroom, and comfortable bed, a view over the golf course on the third floor. No refrig. Complim snacks and two bottle of water provided, very soft elegant robes to use.Their is a wonderful sitting area off the bar area outside with a shaded spot to enjoy conversation and drinks. The grounds out back was a gravel path along the fountains and tree lined grass shaded path along the other side, enjoyable 15 minute stroll around., no gardens, Breakfast was complimentary with a assortment of fruits, bagels, muffins yogurt cereals, granola bars, coffee teas started at 7am, you could eat in the small but charming elegant restaurant by the bar lounge with a menu for a cost. The restaurant and menu is very good for dinner too. The staff very friendly helpful and happy, The pool indoor was under repair and construction. We Would go back again, very enjoyable Happy Anniversary! Hiking close by at the Cold Spring Harbor park about 10 minutes away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I never write reviews but I am so impressed"
The castle/grounds are well maintained and beautiful. The detail in the restoration and throughout the building is remarkable. Our room was fantastic and the bed was so comfortable... And that's not even the best part. We were lucky enough to meet an employee by the name of Ernie. He's a waiter/bartender/all around great guy with a phenomenal personality […] who treats the castle as his home. He made us feel welcomed and his hospitality was overwhelming. He answered every question we had about the castle and amazed us with details of the amazing journey of the restoration (you can see before pictures of the areas complete with peeling paint and graffiti on the walls). He stuffed us with amazing dishes from the restaurant and ensured that we had an experience that far exceeded our expectations. Just when I thought we couldn't possibly feel more at home, a man walks up to every table and introduces himself as Gary the owner and welcomes each individual to his home as he shakes their hand. He asks the 4 year old girl with the tiara on at the table next to us if he could hire her as the castle princess. Super cute. He hangs around long enough to make everyone feel welcomed and offers anyone one who is interested a cigar and offers the princess a toy. After eating we move over to the outdoor lounge seats and Ernie comes over to offer my girlfriend a blanket since it got cold after sunset.I couldn't believe how personal and hospitable our experience was in a place that is so big.

"Spent our wedding night here"
Loved Oheka Castle! We stayed here after our wedding at the Mill Pond House on Nee Years Day. We had booked a basic room but they upgraded us to a Whitney Suite- it was beautiful! We arrived to find red flower petals on our bed- we had brought our own bottle of champagne & they chilled it for us & delivered it with champagne flutes & offered us chocolate […] covered strawberries at no charge. Bed was soft & luxurious as was the enormous beautiful bathroom with soaking tub & huge walk in shower. Beautiful antique furniture- very nice continental breakfast overlooking the gorgeous grounds - highly recommended for a special occasion . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel but late breafast"
I'd definitively be back to the hotel if in the area, but the late-starting breakfast (8:30am!) is a bummer for business travel (or anyone hungry early, like after a morning run). The staff had promised our group a to-go breakfast but we didn't see anyone around to ask when we left before 7am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not geared to business traveler"
The hotel is very nice, and would be great for a vacation. They are not, however, geared toward business travel. No coffee maker in the room, not every room has a desk for working, and breakfast isn't served until 8:30 a.m.! The staff was very nice, however, they didn't offer many options to the above deficiencies.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would hope more would experience the stay there. As it was very pleasant. Room was beautiful and comfortable. I have stayed in many 4 stars this is right there with the rest. No complaints, excellent service, great place. Go there, only draw back I could see was the staff was overly concerned with wedding reception and seemed to not quite regard the […] hotel patron as important.

This was a wonderful way to celebrate my daughters birthday. We had the best time. The history, the service , the food, the room, the grounds......wow.
