    Historical Traveler Reviews Belvedere Mansion Staatsburg

    Not adequate for price

    from

    If there was an option for zero stars this would be the place. The only way that good reviews can be given on this site is if the owners themselves placed them here. Literally the hotel is beautiful from far away but the rooms are musty and old. Stay at the Beekman Arms down the road which had a much better atmosphere and service.

    Romantic Getaway

    from

    My husband and I stayed here the week-end before Thanksgiving. When we arrived, we were thrilled with the location. The mansion sits atop a hill overlooking the Hudson River and mountains. We immediately felt relaxed as we entered the hotel. The furnishings are beautiful - you feel like you are in Beauty and the Beast and the furniture is going to start dancing. The rooms are at the top of a wonderful staircase and each one is decorated differently. In the evening, you can eat dinner downstairs and you are served a meal with nothing short of white glove service. In the morning you are served breakfast and that is included with your stay. The staff was quite attentive to us even though there were affairs going on the entire week-end and I did not feel ignored or overlooked. Do not pay attention to the negative reviews that precede mine. This is a very lovely spot to have a romantic getaway and we will return in the future.

    I'm not sure they care!

    from

    Aside from Jill at the front desk, I felt as if we were more an inconvience than a welcomed guest. The furniture in our room smelled moldy and damp, the king bed was two twins pushed together, the bathroom was the size of a small closet, the breakfasts offered limited choices and were at best OK. I think that as there were only a few people staying at the time the level of care was very limited. During our stay they had a large corporate party. This was their main concern. We went to dinner in Rhinebeck and when we returned there was no place to park. I thought we were staying at their facility, paying for the room and No place to park? There is more, but I hope you get the point.

    I would not recommend this facility. We loved the area and plan to return, but we will stay elsewhere.

    Exceptional Food - Deceptive Management

    from

    While this facility has tremendous potential and could be an exceptional site for any elaborate event, or an intimate get away weekend, it will probalby not ever reach that potential due to the owner and his wife.

    Frankly, the best thing the Belvedere Mansion has going for it is the Chef and his staff. The food is outstanding, 5 star caliber for sure.

    The owner is a hot-head, does not keep his word and is, in the words of our guests "shady"....

    The owner's wife is also less than accomodating and very condescending.

    Proceed with caution and get it in writing!

    Best New Years Eve Ever

    from

    Just a dream.... You have to see it in order to believe it. A perfect make-up of the 'Gilded Age'.The Manison, the Location, the Restaurant.

    Believe it or not, there are even no Tv's or phones in the rooms (but in the lounge). Perfect hospitality. Nothing is bothering you.

    Breakfast served by the maids...simply cool.And than the food....

    Oysters with cucumber granite, mable of ox-tongue and foie gras...

    We'll be there again next year to celebrate New Years Eve with our friends. We had an unforgettable Start into 2004. Thanks to our friends C & P and the Belvedere.

    Great Experience!!

    from

    My husband and I needed to "get away from it all". After asking around, we were recommended to go the the Belvedere Mansion. We made reservations for a weekend in June 2003 and were more than pleasantly surprised. Everything about the Belvedere met our expectations and more. Firstly, the accomadations were great. Our room was spotless, the best sleep I have ever had. The linen, the bed, the bathroom, everything was great. Anythig and everything we asked for, was at out fingertips. Next, the resaurant was fabulous. The food was prepared with great pride, and served magnificently. The staff was warm and caring. I can't say enough good things about this establishment. TRY IT, you'LL love it.

    Fabulous weekend affair

    from

    We recently had our daughter's wedding at the Belvedere Mansion. We booked rooms for the weekend for 40 of our guests. Everyone raved about the beauty of the grounds and the accommodations. The food was delicious the service excellent and the staff extremely courteous. We are still receiving cudos from the grooms family for arranging such a unique and luxurious wedding celebration weekend. Now that we are empty nesters we just can't wait to spend a romantic weekend at the Belvedere Mansion.

    Great Getaway

    from

    I had a great time, the accomodations were wonderful, the staff was great, and the food was delicious. I would definately go back!!

    Bad attitude x ten

    from

    accommodations-i do not believe our room would have passed local codes ! voiced complaint to deaf ears! NEVER AGAIN!

    Verbal abuse!

    from

    Upon finding that our rooms in the carriage house were not to our liking (musty, beat-up bathroom/broken floor tile, cheap aluminum shower enclosure) and not worth the $125 price for a night, we asked for a refund. This was about 10 minutes after checking in. The inkeeper belligerently treated us to a verbal assault using the "F" word about six different ways and ending by saying that he "wasn't in business to kiss your A**" He came close to threatening, saying "if she (the front desk person) wasn't here..." and trailing off his sentence ominously. (Did he mean to imply physical violence?). He ultimately refunded our money (for our ten-minute GLANCE at the room) but it almost wasn't worth the headache!!!!

    Though the mansion-proper may be beautiful, I'd be wary about this place. The innkeeper has a hot temper -- or at least a Jekyll & Hyde personality (he was pleasant to other guest checking in at the same time). There must be better places in the area to stay!

    Given that we know so much more now and understand that we need to ask a few more pointed questions, does this improve our odds at having a quality solution to our problem? We move on. Did I say we were new to this? RV Virgins of the first order?

    While we were talking at the Maple stand, the guy next to us said immediately, "Are you from New Zealand?". Which was unusual as 99% of the people ask Australia or England.
    He takes us over to his wife who is from Napier! Finally found a New Zealander here.
