Positive Reviews

Clean and airy.

You can expect to find clean and luxurious rooms at White Elephant. Cottages and loft accommodations generally have been more highly rated by visitors than other room types, though most of the guest rooms and suites were given positive reviews as well.

Spectacular grounds and location.

Located right on the harbor, you can indulge in refreshing and beautiful views of the bay and the natural charm of the area. This property also is situated close to a number of potential points of interest, such as the Brant Point Lighthouse. Guests also have enjoyed hanging around on the well-kept grounds and lounging on lawn chairs. An added bonus is that ferry service is available just steps away from the property.

Nice restaurant on-site.

Guests have generally enjoyed dining at the on-site restaurant.

Negative Reviews

Wishy-washy Wi-Fi.

Several guests have complained about Wi-Fi service being either poor or non-existent on the premises.

Noise control might be needed.

White Elephant hotel may not exactly be a quiet place to unwind as it is situated directly by the harbor. Noise from the harbor has been noted by several visitors. Other visitors have mentioned issues with noise levels coming from other guests. Rooms surrounding the children's beach have been especially noisy.

Potentially pricey.

Expect to pay a pretty penny when you stay at this hotel. Some guests said the price was over the top for the accommodations given and it was the most they have ever paid for a hotel stay; other visitors have rated the hotel as gold standard and the price was expected for the area and the experience given.
