Reluctantly stayed here again for a few days (group booking via my work) and was faced with a poorly presented room. How poorly? I walk into the room I was given and was overwhelmed by the strong smell of urine! I immediately ask a co-worker to come into the room to confirm before I went back to the front desk... More

I have a few minimum standards when travelling on business. Quick check-in, clean everywhere, good sleeping conditions and an office away from home. This location fufilled none of my minimum standards. At check-in the desk only had one other person arriving (this was at 10p.m., and the clerk kept answering the phone. Once I did check in the directions to... More

Was there for two nights and had rented 2 conference rooms as well. All hotel amenities were great, then staff were friendly and helpful. The porter looking after the hotel was fantastic and the best service I have had when renting a conference room. Will definitely return.

On Mon. May 12th., my husband and I decided to dine at the Tattinger restaurant located within the Holiday Inn, Barrie. We were married there 35 years ago to the day and thought it would be nice to return, see the changes and relive wonderful memories.

Stayed for two nights and had a room in the tower block, overlooking the 'courtyard'. Very quiet. Room was spotless. Appreciated the newer fridge for food and drink storage, and it has a very quiet operation. Restaurant was also very clean and the service was very helpful and friendly.

This is a good hotel, well located, close to the highway, so it was perfectly located for my needs. The room was adequate and the pool was closed.
