Our Guests Say it Best

Delightful Place in a Dreamy Village

Aurora, New York is like a town from a beautiful dream. Wallcourt Hall is a delightful place to stay. This historic building has been beautifully updated for modern comforts, while retaining enough of the original beauty of the architecture and craftsmanship to feel special. Our guest room was very comfortable. The in-room mini refrigerator was just right for holding drinks and leftovers. The common spaces in the hotel, especially the sofas around the fireplace are cozy and welcoming. The staff and concierge went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Excellent Inn

We spent two nights here on a trip through upstate NY. It is an amazing inn and property located in a picture-perfect small upstate town. Located right in town so everything is walkable. Wallcourt was very modern in appearance and style. The rooms were large very clean and well kept. Perhaps one of the nicest inns we have ever stay at. Well-trained and professional staff were very helpful. Jasmine at the front desk was especially pleasant and Dale was also very helpful. We would definitely stay again.

Amazing stay!

We recently stayed at the Wallcourt Hall for two nights. It is a beautiful hotel and we enjoyed our stay. The concierge was very friendly and informative. This hotel is part of the Inns of Aurora, so we had access to the beach on Cayuga Lake (which is just across the street). The weather was perfect for using the paddleboards and kayaks. We had an amazing dinner at 1833 Kitchen & Bar which is located in the Aurora Inn. Looking forward to a return trip in the future!

Margie was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was fabulous—clean and comfortable. Bedding was luxe and pillows were comfy. The common space was very nice, and if it was bad weather or winter, we would have enjoyed the living room and fireplace, but considering the time of year, we enjoyed all the lake had to offer. Everyone was extremely warm, friendly, and helpful. We visited several of the local wineries and drove the 45 minutes to nearby hiking trails. Aurora is a quaint town. If you’re hoping for late nights and lots of action, look elsewhere. If you want to slow down, unplug, and enjoy nature, this is the place!
