I think breakfast can improve. It is not varied enough and very little of it.

    Out in the middle of almost nowhere is a beautiful historic hotel with exceptional service. We were warmly welcomed the moment we came in, and were looked after very well indeed. The hotel is stunning, and they treat you like you're a family member visiting than a mere guest. My only minor complaint was that when we arrived a bit later for breakfast time there wasn't very much left. However, what was left was very delicious and they made up for it by finding more for us. Commendable. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Can't believe this place exists. Historical hotel with great staff, gourmet food and excellent view of Mt. Hood. Quaint little town about fifteen miles south of The Dalles.
