Sublime. An experience not to be missed

Dinner at Post Ranch. Perfection. Warm greetings all around. Casually elegant. Effortless service, gracious. Food spectacular. Pre fixe. Do not miss the shortribs. Everything we had was great. Chocolate dessert a nice surprise (secret ingredient). Cheese plate best I have ever had.

Pure Bliss

Montreal, Canada

I've read the negative reviews for this hotel and have to laugh. Yes depending on which room you are in the bed could be high...big deal. We were booked in the Ocean House for 3 nights and after only a few hours knew that we wanted one more night. Unfortunately the Ocean House was booked for the extra night but we did opt to move for the one night to the F post. The only thing i would say is that the view from the F post is not as nice as you have trees blocking the view. As for the accommodation though it was just as nice. The staff here are so amazing and so accommodating. We had one mishap...I have allergies and unfortunately the pastries are not named. My husband thankfully took a muffin that I am actually allergic to. If it had been me it would not have ended well. On our way out of breakfast we mentioned this to the girl up front. A few hours later we did get a call from a manager apologizing, surprised himself that it was not clearly marked and assured us that that would be changing. The care and attention here is amazing and i have felt very safe. Yes,at times internet sucks...oh well...this is truly a place that you come to chill a d unplug. We leave tomorrow and I am sad and grateful for the amazing experience!!! Thank you to all of you at Post Ranch In.
