My friends and I celebrated a birthday here for wine tasting. The foliage was absolutely beautiful. The water views were so siren and the wine and cheese tasting were awesome. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go again. Our host Chrissy was the best and she very knowledgeable about the location and wines we would definitely return!
Belhurst Castle is a beautiful venue for a wedding. There is a spacious lawn overlooking Seneca Lake where one may have a ceremony and cocktail hour in good weather. It is an excellent place for photos too. From there one may go inside to one of two ballrooms on site for the reception. The food served for the reception was average. One server was short with me when I mentioned that they removed our dessert forks before dessert. Coffee and tea service was self-serve.
Just stayed at White Marsh Manor. Wonderful experience with staff including housekeeping and wait staff at the eateries. Like all service businesses, they are suffering from staffing constraints (slow food services) but the current staff was wonderful to deal with. I think the staff has and is also suffering from some very rude (not demanding, just plain rude) customers. Loved the setting, loved the building, loved the room. If you want the experience of staying in a grand historic property, this is the place. If you think vinyl is luxury, bathroom counter top materials scream class status or Vegas is ultima, this isn't the place for you. If you want to stay in a grand country house, these properties can't be beat. Absolutely loved it. The food is great, servers very hard working.
Room 106 is very tired, broken light fixture in the middle of the room. Musty smell and all windows need cleaning. Dined at Edgar's and the service was very good, kitchen was spotty. I had the venison and while the meat was cooked medium rare, it was dried out. French onion soup perfect. Continental breakfast was disappointing, stale packaged bagels and woefully inadequate toasters. Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn can do good breakfast, why can't Belhurst? While the location is still beautiful, this property doesn't even come close to four stars. On a bright spot, the winery gift shop and tasting area was pleasant. Well staffed with helpful service folks.
If you are visiting the finger lakes region of NY then Belhurst is a must see location. I've never stayed there but Edgar's restaurant is second to none. Food is next level as is the service. It simply doesn't get any better. Additionally the pricing is very reasonable for what you get. The location and view of the lake is spectacular. I was visiting Syracuse and drove the 60 miles one way just to eat there again. Well worth it.
