Fodor's Review

Reopened after an extensive, well-executed redesign—the former Mansion at Judges’ Hill boutique hotel changed ownership and became the Hotel Ella—the historic Goodall Wooten mansion still retains its stately, old-world charm and Goodall’s Kitchen & Bar still occupies the main floor. The romantic setting screams special occasion, with a concise (and pricey) menu. Service is first-rate, but the cuisine gets inconsistent reviews from patrons who think the lackluster flavors of dishes like fish and chips and seared strip steaks, aren’t worth the price. Seasonal ceviches are popular, however. Breakfast and lunch are served on weekdays, replaced by brunch on weekends. Snag a table on the wraparound porch if the weather is nice.
