Interesting

Jun 5th, 2019

We got a huge price discount on a king room staying here out of season, mid week and you felt as though you were in an empty hotel. Great lobby greets you, our room was freezing and the heater was efficient but loud!!! Our bed was super comfy but the big room was sparse and felt lacking in warmth as there were no carpets, paintings etc. Breakfast was help yourself and whilst the scrambled eggs were good they were cold and there were no forks! So all in all it was interesting and a bargain compared to everywhere else in the area. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Beware positive reviews from Jewish customers. This place is a filthy establishment.

Apr 2nd, 2019

Filthy. I have never been in any establishment more dirty than this. This is also NOT a hotel, but rather a retreat for a religious sect. Unless you are a conservative Jewish traveler, you will find yourself very uncomfortable here. There are Jewish voodoo devices on each door, it’s extremely concerning. There was filth everywhere, this hotel felt like it hasn’t been vacuumed or cleaned since it opened. The facility itself could be nice if it was actually maintained. Pubic hair was found in our bed when we checked in, cracked tiles and rust in the bathroom, exposed wiring in the steam room, expired elevator license, plates in the restaurant completely filthy. I’ll let the photos do the talking. This hotel also has segregated pool hours during parts of the day per Jewish tradition - this segregation is illegal in NH. As a paying guest I was disappointed that pool is off limits due to Jewish custom during certain parts of the day. Everything about this hotel is completely unacceptable and I would never stay there if they better advertised that it’s a Jewish retreat to begin with. Unless you want a disgusting space with numerous safety violations, stay at the Best Western in Franconia. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

If you are not a Orthodox or Ultra Orthodox jew avoid this place

Mar 13th, 2019

If you are not a Orthodox or Ultra Orthodox jew avoid this place, the other guest will look down on you, the management will make you feel like you're different from the other guests. My wife and I keep a kosher home and living in the Boston area it is very hard for me to find places that we can go that she can eat all the food on a given menu. And I had booked this place for our anniversary and her birthday as a way to give her his chance. And other then one part of the meal(see below) and the meal the hotel was terrible. The shabbos meal we had was some of the worst food I've ever had especially when they say that they serve gourmet food. They also didn't want to accommodate us for dinner as they didn't feel we were religious enough and that everyone else has paid for food beforehand because of a special event that was booked at the hotel AFTER I booked my room and they didn't feel the need to reach out to us and ask if we wanted to add the package or switch our reservation. They actually tried to get us to just stay in our room and they would bring the food to us. It started with cold over cooked salmon and generic gefilte fish followed by some of the worst matzo ball soup I've ever tasted. It was basically the powdered consomme product you can find dissolved in water. The main course was overcooked and tough chicken and brisket with some unidentifiable form of kugel. The dessert they brought our looked like some type of strawberry icy but all you could taste was sugar. The only good thing they had a the dinner was the challah which actually was very good. Overall I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone and will not return to this place again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Nice Facility That Needs Professional Management

Feb 26th, 2019

Overall we had a positive experience. Great to have a kosher hotel here, but there are some significant negatives. Well designed and appointed, only 2 years old. Dinners good: tasty, ample, and kosher. Expensive: $75 for a 4-course dinner, per person, plus a hotel mandated $32 service fee. The room was nicely appointed, comfortable, modern. Comfortable bed and pillows. Very nice bathroom. Sitting area with foldout bed in the couch. 2 televisions. Refrigerator. Safe. Ample closet. We had a Deluxe Suite, adequate for 2 adults and child. Hotel features: synagogue, indoor pool & hot tub, locker room, steam room, dry sauna, outdoor hot tub. 24 hour tea room. Convenient location for hiking, skiing, the White Mountains & beyond. Negatives: We arrived at 5:45 PM room was not ready. Back at 8 still not ready. They tried to place us in a smaller room, but we needed the larger suite, so we waited. Finally ready at 8:45. The room was clean on the surface. We found a pair of underwear in one of the drawers, plus few other less unsavory items. Obviously not deep cleaned. The safe did not work, repaired promptly. 2 bedside lamps did not have bulbs. We asked twice but no one came to replace or repair. The desk lamp lit, but its folding arms were too loose for it to stay upright. Maintenance and repairs are being deferred or ignored. In the synagogue beautiful wood floor was warped and very irregular, making walking an adventure. No sign of repairs happening. The indoor hot tub did not work. The machinery underneath was partly exposed indicating some attempt to fix it, but in the 4 days we were there, no activity at all. The outdoor hot tub was nice, a modern stand-alone spa. The lights to illuminate its patio were missing. The steam room was very nicely appointed and functioned well, but its lighting did not work. Door labeled “Spa” was a linen storage area. There is a pervasive lack of attention to the physical plant. The dairy breakfast had no dairy items available until Friday, No milk for coffee or cereal. No milk for cereal or coffee, even parve almond or soy milk. No yogurt. Breakfast consisted of steam table scrambled eggs and potatoes, cook your own waffles, stale rolls or muffins. Dry cereal. Oatmeal. Hotel in general seemed understaffed. One employee told me s/he had referred some friends there for employment, but the hotel did not seem interested in hiring more people Bottom line: Nice place, great to have a kosher option, but this modern facility is in danger of falling apart. I do hope management gets its act together and does not squander the money invested in the building. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

BAD HOTEL

Feb 19th, 2019

This hotel was terrible. We arrived at 4:30 pm, then we had to wait in the lobby for 45 minutes for our room to get ready. The pool was gross the hot tub was broken. The water in the bath tub was yellow. The water out of the shower ran when it was also coming out of the bath. The service was terrible. They were cleaning a room from 7:00 till 9:00pm. Then people were running around till midnight. The cot would slip if I put all my wieght on one side “couldn’t sleep”. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
