“Good service”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

Here with a group of about 30. The main restaurant was under construction but since most of our meals were in a private dining room that didn't matter. Food was good, service was not obtrusive, and we got a great rate for everything. Plenty of conference facilities. Everything ran very smoothly.

Same venue, different year! This is our second year celebrating the New Years at Turf Valley.

And we have every intention to do it again to ring in 2013! Why...

Beautiful venue. Awesome & Fun Band (Klassix). Great service (booking the tickets and table, front desk, catering staff). Generous amount of appetizers at event (delicious too). Best value all around (room, event, breakfast).

THANKS TURF VALLEY

it was our first time here but second year for our conference at this location. hotel was very clean everywhere we went; meeting rooms, lobby, rooms, etc. the keurig in the room was a nice feature but there was only 1 kind of tea available (will bring my selections if returning). we had a standard guest room which was adequate for our needs. every staff member we encountered was friendly. the food for lunch & dinner for the conference was good. overall, i would recommend this place to friends & those needing a nice place for a cenference.

We live in Virginia and our big fans of the beautiful wine yards. We had no idea MD even had any. We booked this package for a weekend getaway and experience Black Ankle. The value of this package is excellent. For less than $300 we got a very nice room, tour of Black Ankle, a bottle of wine, and two meals at the restaurant. (Turf Valley provided the van trip - driver "Tim" was a charm)

We highly recommend this package, however advise everyone to explore other restaurants and honestly prefer not to eat there again. Dinner was borderline OK (their was a new menu - but food took a very long time and did not taste great) and breakfast was not satisfactory to any level (horrible buffet presentation)

We will be back in the Spring to visit Black Ankle again. Our plans will probably be booking the same room and visiting the Spa and playing golf. THANKS

Room Tip: Call hotel directly. Very friendly and accommodating concierge team. Book a junior suite!

Thank you so much for your review. The Black Ankle Winery Tour Package is one of our most popular getaways and I'm very glad you enjoyed it! I have shared your concerns about the restaurant with the appropriate staff - thank you for that feedback.

We look forward to having you back again - since you want to include the Golf & Spa experience during your next stay, I recommend you ask about our Couple's Golf & Spa Overnight Getaway Package when you are ready to book.

Again, thank you for your review. Please feel free to contact me at visitus@turfvalley.com if I can be of any assistance in the future.

Thank you,

I grew up in Baltimore and Turf Valley always had a special allure. My husband and I attended his 50th high school reunion this past weekend at Turf Valley. Someone told me that Turf Valley had been voted the best spa/resort - by whom?

The room was the smallest I had ever stayed in outside of London, England. Two queen beds - a dresser - end tables - small desk - no chair to sit and read - no reading lights. The bathroom was about big enough to turn around in. No place to put anything. The second day when we returned to the room after breakfast they had cleaned the room but only made one of the beds - huh?

About the food - bring your own. They only had a breakfast buffet and anything would be better than what they had. The eggs came out of a box for sure and the french toast was plastered to the bottom of the pan and stuck together. It was really bad. No separate menu - only a buffet.

A small nit - room service for breakfast does not start until 7 am - I guess they figure that you are going to be so hung over from the event the night before you won't open your eyes until 7 am. Wrong.

One positive note - the dinner they served at the reunion event was very good.

This is not a cheap place - definitely not worth it - Red Roof Inn would be better.
