"Overall, The Old House was acceptable. the rooms were fine- the others' room was small but we got a family room. Service was a bit hit and miss, especially around meals - we had to wait over 50 minutes from ordering to receiving food one evening. We mentioned it to management and it improved a little the following evening."
