Allison House Inn reviews

9.0 Wonderful!

Hotel staff very kind and helpful. We arrived very late and the owner showed us to our rooms quickly and quietly but very politely. The welcome glass of whiskey was just what was needed- a most welcome touch. I was traveling with my 12 yr old and she enjoyed her stay very much. Breakfast was superb and the fruit trolley is wonderful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
