Two things that really get me is poor customer service and safety. They were lacking in both. Front desk staff was not helpful- pool deck in water park was VERY slippery! On a second note, the front desk staff wasn't that helpful. Actually

Took my kids for a weekend getaway and we had a blast! Had the pool/slide area to ourselves most of Saturday, my kids felt very special! Will definitely be planning another trip in the future. Thank you!

This was our first time staying at Thumper Pond and we have heard many wonderful things, which set our standards higher than normal. And they definitely delivered! The rooms are BEAUTIFUL and very clean. The staff was very helpful and prompt. The restaurant was awesome! They let us order a pizza 3 mins before they closed the kitchen, which we...

Stayed 2 nights. Clean, very comfortable rooms. Due to scheduling issues, wait staff at breakfast was one person covering the entire restaurant. This was on a day there was a wedding at the hotel.

I travel for my job. I have been in a lot of hotels. The room was beaten up and seemed old. There was black mold in the bathroom. For the prices they should have better rooms. location is fantastic, golf course is great

This was a great place to stay. It was a little on the spendy side but overall it was a great place. The rooms were clean and we were able to check in a little early. From what we saw the golf course looked nice, it would have been nice to get out there, but it did look nice.

This was a beautiful hotel. We stayed there, as our friend's wedding reception was held there. The golf course looked awesome, although we were not able to fit in a round. The restaurant had a wonderful breakfast/brunch! We would stay there again!

It was an average stay. The bar only had one bartender on a Saturday afternoon during football season with a wedding on site as well. The bartender had very little experience as well. She had to break her own cash to get cash back to patrons as she was unable to get anyone to give her cash for the till.

I think the cost was a bit high, I am a senior and play golf at Purple Hawk in Cambridge for $30.00 including cart. I played 2 rounds at Thumper had 3 meals off sandwich side menu (meals couldn't have been more than $75.00 total) & 1 night room for 320.00+. Making the room cost over $200.00. This seems high...

Poor ! When calling and asking about water park you should tell guest honestly the situation. Maintance should do checks on doors. Being locked out of your room is not fun! When your pool hours are clearly marked your staff should follow them. We thought we had until 10 pm to swim. The lifeguard would not let us swim and...
