Excellent service. Friendly and helpful staff. Food was superb. Room clean and charming. The setting is terrific. Wonderful clay tennis court and beautiful pool. Had two dinners, two breakfast and two picnic lunches. All were first class. Good wines, too.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay over Valentines day- it's an old well kept manor, and the staff were very nice. We stayed in the Wellington Room- the accomodations are very comfortable and clean (the bed was great, the jacuzzi spacious and clean, and the fire place perfect for a cold and snowy night). Our room only had a view of the yard, but it was the last they had available. The decor suggests someone's grandmother put it together 40 years ago, but I can't complain about an old manor being decorated with old styles. The dining area and bar have a very classy appearance- as did the meal itself. The food (dinner and breakfast) scored high points for both appearance and quality, though we didn't find the flavor to be anything special. Really my only negative comment was with regard to the noise. Expedia advertises that they are 'sound proof' rooms, however we must have been over the kitchen because I could hear what sounded like doors and cabinets slamming until 11 pm, voices loud and clear from the hallway, and someone's V-day bed frame a'banging.

Response by The Manor On Golden Pond
Sorry to hear you experience was a bit off for noise. Unfortunately one of our rooms is over the kitchen and it is the last room we sell because of this factor. But so glad you enjoyed everything else. The Manor does capture old world charm. The living room and library convey a old English Manor. Maybe visit at a time when it is not so busy and you will get the peace and tranquility that we love about our setting.

I was looking forward to going this hotel and was very disappointed. It is definitely NOT worth the money. When I got there I thought I was lost and that I had made a mistake. The pictures are very misleading... The hotel isn't even on the lake. My room was small and dark with a tiny bathroom. The room has a super old TV with a VCR (yes a VCR!!!) and it did not have internet access. It felt like my grandmother's house in the 80's. The place is OK but not worth the money at all.

We had a very nice stay and regretted that we didn't have more time to enjoy the pool and tennis courts at the Inn. They were both in very nice condition and lovely. The breakfast was great!

This is a great place to "get away from it all." We had a room with a jacuzzi and fireplace, so it was a perfect way to spend a quiet evening. The comfortable robes and champagne the staff left in our room didn't hurt either! Meals were good and consistent throughout our stay. The cost for the room is expensive, but we felt the luxury was there to warrant the price. We also loved the shaded tennis courts for a morning round. The only challenge was that restaurants, bars and shops closed very early (around 8p-9p) and we felt there were limited activities in the surrounding area. But we would recommend The Manor to friends.

Amazing stay. The only complaint that I have is that I didnt stay at the Manor longer. We were in town to see a concert during Laconia Bike Week and unbeknown to us most of the hotels were sold out. We had no idea what a gorgeous property we were getting when we booked so we did not spend a lot of time here but we did enjoy a wonderful breakfast the next morning and walked the beautiful grounds before checking out. The inn keeper was lovely and really made us feel welcomed. I cannot wait to go back for a visit with my husband when we can spend some quality time on the property.

"a tucked-away-treasure"

this is one of those places you actually dont want to tell anyone about because its so special. and you hope that it will stay like that. we were just passing through and booked here to spend the night and continue our road trip. we got this amazing room with a fire place and a hot tub. its a very romantic setting with comfortable beds. the room even has a little kitchenette and a porch with a sweeping vieuw of a lawn where you could spend days relaxing and reading books. its a small hotel with a few rooms in the main building and some rooms outside, thats were we stayed. the breakfast was also supurb and so is the staff. if we would ever visit this area again we would make a point of going back there.

"Charning hotel. Wonderful service. Excellent food"
06/22/15 james g Prospect, Connecticut
The manor folks could not have done more to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. It's location in the NH lakes region is stunning (Golden Pond), but the property itself is beautiful. Our dinners were superb. Breakfast was prepared to order. And, picnic lunches rounded out the day. Staff was always available to help and thge raooms were spotless. It has an absolutely charming English Pub. A beautiful pool and a charming clay court. We'll be back!

"Wonderful stay at the Manor on Golden Pond."
06/20/15 David B London, United Kingdom
My wife and I stayed at this lovely hotel from 5 th to 8 th June and occupied the Yorkshire suite . Brian and Mary Ellen were wonderful hosts, their bar lady makes the world's best dry martini and the chef was so good we actually changed our plans and ate in every night. Mary arranged a wonderful 2 hour trip for us on the lake and made an appointment for the spa where I had a wonderful relaxing and professional massage. The hotel wasn't too full so it was a very relaxing and comfortable stay on our journey around New England.

"So Darn Charming"
06/10/15 NJAub Cape Vincent, New York
We stayed one night in the Buckingham Room? I think it was the Buckingham Room-we were told it was formerly the master bedroom. It was pretty with a nice fireplace, old books, and a tiny balcony. We enjoyed the balcony very much with a bottle of wine and a cheese tray that we had sent up. Some spots in the room needed dusting, some were spotless. Perhaps the cleaner is in a certain routine. We had dinner in the dining room and it was very good. The presentation is nice. The chandelier was dusty. The staff is nice. The location is pretty...but it'snot actually ON the water. We'd stay there again.

We stayed 6 nights in the Sandwich Suite. It felt like home away from home. Very comfortable and low key elegant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They bent over backwards to please us. Meghan, Matthew, owners Brian and Mary Ellen, Linda, etc., were all delightful. The full breakfasts every morning were delicious and varied. We dined there two nights as well and it was also marvelous. And my goodness, the afternoon tea was also tasty. Nice to have a private deck. I also enjoyed a massage at the spa with Melanie. Very convenient to Holderness.

"Great place to celebrate a special occassion"

My husband loves to cook and what better way to celebrate his birthday then to learn and share ideas with the fabulous Chef Peter in the "Fork in the Road" cooking class. We stayed in the Savoy Court room and enjoyed the fireplace each evening. The service and food were outstanding, worthy of any big city dining experience. The Manor is simply a beautiful, historic gem with much to enjoy from the afternoon tea to the delicious breakfast to the special touches honoring a landmark birthday. I would recommend the Manor, especially for a very special occasion.

"Fantastic Weekend on Golden Pond"
04/19/15 ShazamBoston Boston
I wanted to treat my wife to a nice relaxing weekend for her birthday and the Manor on Golden Pond did not disappoint! We booked the Magic Manor package which included breakfast and dinner for one of the nights at the amazing restaurant. The views of the lake were outstanding and we were both impressed with the terrific customer service. Prior to arranging I requested champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a box of chocolates which the staff did a great job arranging. We loved the Buckingham Room, which was a very large room with a double sink, huge fireplace, super comfortable bed. Even though there were many people staying at Manor we didn't hear a sound. The Inn was very cozy with its own British style pub, boardgames, puzzles, and complimentary tea and sandwiches in the afternoon. The food was top notch, from appetizer to entree to desert, with a very impressive menu. We also liked the creative breakfast choices including pumpkin sourdough french toast, omelets, and cranberry pancakes. The staff was happy to assist with ice, additional firewood, extra towels, etc., and were extremely welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend the Manor and we are planning on returning!

"Living like an aristocrat"
03/19/15 TravelWriterDB Cleveland, Ohio
As we arrived, we couldn’t help but be impressed with the wood beams and fabulous woodwork throughout the interior of the Manor. Brick and plaster walls, fine hardwood flooring and beautiful area rugs set off the comfortable seating in the many public spaces. Huge back-to-back fireplaces were the focal points in the lobby and the “tea room”. Afternoon tea was available at 4:00 p.m. with a selection of small sandwiches and fresh bakery. We stayed in the Yorkshire Suite, a 450-square-foot oasis of luxury. The room was bright and elegant with its wide, white woodwork and blue and white wallcoverings. A high-backed airjet Jacuzzi sat between the living area and the bedroom, such that you could enjoy the fireplace while luxuriating in the tub. Across the hall in the bathroom was a walk-in steam shower with waterfall head, beautiful suspended sink and toilet. A smart, white, glass-doored wall unit contained hair dryer and multiple bathroom essentials. A sofa, stuffed chair, as well as a small round table with two chairs gave you plenty of options for sitting while enjoying the fire. We pulled the table in front of the fireplace for a board game before retiring. In the separate bedroom, the bed was centered in the room and its tall, four-poster bed tried but couldn’t touch the cathedral ceiling in the room. Fine, blue, shear, drapery fabric swagged over the head of the bed, falling to the sides of the headboard. A white soffit around the bed concealed two recessed downlights, making it easy to read in bed. Had it been warmer weather during our stay, I would have wanted to enjoy a glass of wine on the private patio outside our room, overlooking the lake and the mountains in the distance.

"Quiet Retreat"
03/10/15 AnneV87 MA
We were looking for a place to get away from our routine for a few days. Our expectation was to rest, relax, shop, eat well, and maybe get a hike in. We were able to do all of it here. Updates are needed to the inside (outside was hard to tell, as the snow was still deep), but it was a charming New England inn. We never saw the owners and we weren't given a reason why; however, both Carol and Matthew were wonderfully helpful and hospitable during our stay. We stayed in the Savoy Suite and enjoyed the soaking tub and the fireplace. We had a fire each night while reading and sitting in front of it - just lovely. Breakfast each morning was delicious and served in a friendly, timely manner. There were plenty of choices. There weren't too many people staying there so it was as if we had the place to ourselves, especially on the Monday and Tuesday morning! It did feel a bit expensive without some of those small touches to make you feel really pampered - tea or coffee delivered early in your room (breakfast wasn't until 8:30), little fridge for leftovers or water or juice, etc. Overall, we were happy with our visit and would come back in the off season!
