Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Rooms misrepresented on site, also not very clean. Amenities weren’t well maintained. Breakfast shut down/chef left early both days we were there and we had to go looking for breakfast elsewhere (very limited options as the location was in less populated area). Guests in room above us were loud all night until 4am. No one around from the hotel to deal with this.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Before booking my stay, I read a lot of great reviews of this place. I was looking for a boutique hotel on a lake with top-notch food, amenities and service, and I was happy to pay $300 a night to meet those criteria. Unfortunately, the Northridge does not live up to the reviews and was not worth the extra expense. Where to begin? It's clear a lot of money was spent on the renovation of the hotel, and the common areas are just gorgeous. However, there is a lot of neglect visible around the property. Overgrown grass, spiderwebs, chips in the paint in the rooms. While the decor is instagram-worthy, it's obvious that underneath is a cheap, temporary building (like a cabin at a caravan park). The bathrooms in the rooms are tiny and lack light. I find that luxury is in the details, and those details are missing. Some things I would like to have seen are big, fluffy towels or robes in the rooms. I was visiting for a special occasion (mentioned when booking) and while I don't expect special treatment, a glass of sparkling wine or something in the room would go a long way to making guests feel special. The setting is beautiful, as is the restaurant, but the food and menu do not live up to the 5 star prices. The food is OK, but not good enough to warrant a price tag of $22-$30 per main dish. No espresso coffee available, but each cup was $4? Cocktails were amazing, but that's about the only impressive part of the food/beverage offering.
