Loved the hotel. Beautiful views, nice rooms, had no problems with respect to front desk or housekeeping services. The resort was not fully open yet (it was too cold for the beach, so can't really rate that aspect of it). Very quiet as again cold and a bit off season still and I think the feel would be completely different in high season as far as resort goes. They include snacks, drinks in the mini bar, and internet which I love. However, they charge a resort fee which I am not sure the purpose of, especially off season when there is little of the resort open. I would just fold that into the room rate or waive it off season. The food was outstanding, and I reviewed the restaurant separately. However, the service at the restaurant needs some work. We did not have one meal without some service issue. For example, every breakfast they serve the coffee and forget the milk, then disappear for 20 minutes. They forgot the wine at dinner, served a wrong first course. Second dinner, forgot part of the order. You never know who is your waitress/waiter as they change constantly. Other than that, Watch Hill is beautiful, nice beach to walk on and looks like when the season is in full swing they have lots of beach activities. Lots of nice walks to take as well in the town (and look at all the mansions one after another)!

They will not answer their phone if you need something in your room. All lines, from valet , room service, spa, dining, etc. are routed to the front desk. You place your room service order with a guest relations person at the front desk who tries to interpret the menu. If the single desk clerk is with another client checking in or out, your call is sent to voice mail which they do not check. There is usually only one person at the front desk who seems overwhelmed and apologetic for the deficiencies in customer service.

First, this is a review of their brunch only. We did not stay there overnight. It is an absolutely beautiful facility and I would love to come visit offseason. While I would go back for lunch or dinner, I would not necessarily go back for brunch. My musings in no particular order of importance: 1) this was advertised as a jazz brunch. There was a wonderful jazz trio there but they were in the lobby, not the brunch area itself. We couldn't hear the music at all where we were sitting. Which to be honest, was fine, because then we three girlfriends could hear each other talk - just 2) we had 12:15 reservations but had to wait almost 15 minutes longer. Which would be totally fine if this were a normal restaurant and not a high-end resort. (Also, we hadn't eaten much that morning in anticipation of decadent brunch) 3) We were seated at a very lovely table with a view of the water on their closed in porch area. Be warned- some tables definitely did NOT have a water view. The enclosed porch area is more bright and lovely than the main room 4) When we were seated, no one explained to us how brunch worked - that we should help ourselves to the stations and then after our first plate the server would come to take our main order. So we sat and waited for 10 minutes and then someone brought us water. And then we sat some more and a server brought coffee. And finally the server explained the process. The server at the next table explained this all beautifully and quickly when she sat her party. But well, now YOU know what to do.We were just surprised at the wait. Again, not a big deal in a normal restaurant. 5) the stations were nice- a crepe station, a station for finger desserts, a station for oysters/shrimp, another station for scones/muffins and lastly a station for cheeses and various salads and fruits. No omelette station that I noticed. All of the stations were very tasty. A special shout out to the lemon meringue cone 6) the main meal was tasty although not that memorable. Perfectly nice. 7) this is NOT a real buffet brunch and I am not suggesting that they advertised it was. My fault for thinking it would be more buffet style. More of a main course with lots of delicious and surprisingly simple finger food. So don't go expecting a huge buffet spread like the Langham in Boston or Wentworth by the Sea in Portsmouth NH. For a brunch, I much preferred Wentworth by the Sea and the cost there was easily $15 less. Though the Ocean House view was amazing and the brunch price takes the beautiful facility into account. 8) we spent a leisurely and relaxing 2 1/4 hrs at brunch 9) we arrived 40 minutes early and thought we would wander down to the beautiful beach to have a look. Nope, even though this was still off season (a week before Memorial Day), only guests can walk on the beach. I can totally understand that in high season, but seemed almost mean off season - one needed a guest room card to access the beach. It's not like we were wearing cutoffs and thongs and carrying a beach bag- we were ladies in our 40's all wearing respectable "Sunday best" clothing and just wanted to have a quick stroll and the *truly* beautiful beach 10) a classy move regarding the valets- they do not accept tips and the valet parking is complimentary for brunch guests. Also, we did not notice a time limit on the valet, so in theory one could wander the beautiful watch hill area a bit on foot before driving away. Last) So why wouldn't I necessary go back for brunch? I thought it overpriced for what it was and I guess I prefer proper buffets for brunch, My personal preference. The food was good though and ambiance lovely, so I would definitely consider going here for a romantic dinner or a relaxing lunch.

My husband booked us in the Beach Rose Suite with direct ocean view to enjoy our 10th anniversary weekend. We were offered a glass of sparkling wine or bottle of water (chilled or unchilled) on arrival. There was also a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine in the room when we arrived. The room was stocked with fruit, snacks and a full bar service. There was a "C" throw pillow on the bed for our last name (nice touch). This is a gorgeous "old world" hotel walking steps from a beautiful beach. The service and amenities at this hotel are the top of the spectrum. However, you are absolutely paying for the quality and design of the hotel and this level of service. This is a special treat hotel stay.

My wife planned a wonderful 25th anniversary weekend for us at the unparalleled Ocean House. This is by far the nicest hotel we have ever visited. The service was impeccable starting with Elise providing us such a welcoming experience! She kicked off the weekend for us with glasses of champagne and then giving us short tour and inviting us to a cooking class that chef Paul was teaching. What a fun time we had making flat bread in a very intimate setting in the kitchen on the lower level! So good. We also then enjoyed a wine tasting class later on that afternoon. Our room was wonderful - up on the fourth floor near the Tower room. We had a nice view and really enjoyed all the design and small touches in the room. Friends of ours had ordered chocolate strawberries for us and they had them in the room - wow they were some of the biggest strawberries we have seen. The Ocean House goes out of their was to make sure everything is perfect. Around the hotel everyone says hello and a number of people remembered our names and were always so helpful. We had dinner on Friday night in season and it was fantastic. Alexander took care of us and did a wonderful job making sure we enjoyed our dinner. The farm to table dinner that is prepared by the Ocean House chefs is amazing. On Saturday we had a great time using one of complimentary Mercedes convertibles to visit some of the local wineries and then enjoyed a long walk on the beach! We had another wonderful dinner in the bar - if you have a chance try the very tasty pasta bolognese! On Sunday we enjoyed the incredible Ocean House brunch - only one word required - wow! We will be back to stay again and look forward to the new secret garden. Cheers!
