Senator Inn & Spa Augusta Reviews
Great place and a fabulous restaurant Oct 08, 2014
I had the good fortune of picking the Senator Inn & Spa for my second night of this trip. I had been driving around all day and I had really enjoyed my drive in the beautiful landscape but as it was getting late I was looking for a place to stay. It was almost dark and I headed straight into Augusta. I drove by some hotels on the road into the city center before deciding to return to the one I saw first.
The Senator Inn & Spa was pretty busy but I managed to get a room. I asked when their kitchen closed and to my surprise they already closed in 30 min, as they closed at 9 pm. I hurried to check into my room just dropping stuff of and heading to their restaurant. The room was large but a bit cold. It was located at ground level and I was able to park my rental car just outside. The room had two large queen beds. The bathroom was nice and there were a lot of towels and spa things.
The restaurant was pretty busy but most of the tables were looking at the dessert menu. The food was absolutely fabulous. I had a cold lobster as starter and the some lobster ravioli. On top of the great meal they served many beers that I never had seen before, which made my evening even better.
After dinner I went to the bar, which closed at 1 am. I had eaten my dinner under time pressure and I quickly entered the bar because besides being the only guest in the restaurant I received some hints about the open bar next door.
I sat down in the bar next to a couple that turned out to be old school mates 20 years ago. She was nice and friendly, while he was just a jerk patronizing everything and everybody and calling it humor. He kept on referring to me as the Swede, which I don't mind since I am half Swede but I kept on returning his remarks quite sharp. In order to impress his schoolmate, which he was seriously hitting on, he stated in a patronizing way that I was a heck of a man and he would hit on me if he was a woman. I returned his compliment very dry by stating that if he was a woman, I was quite disappointed about his tits and his lack of hair! The woman totally cracked and said it was the best remark she had heard in six weeks sitting in court the most of the time! He left without a smile - and I ordered a rum and coke!
Besides this fun in their bar I really enjoyed my stay there even though I would recommend to take a room further away from the bar and restaurant area as there was some noise early in the morning.
