We definitely enjoy all our stays at this Hotel. The staff is amazing, the rooms are always spotless, and Chef Paul, and server Adrienne, are out of this world. What a culinary experience. I have been to Tattinger's Restaurant, without staying at the Hotel also, when stationed in Borden. This August, I am looking forward to this great experience all... More

Rooms: average to say the least Restaurant: sometimes the buffet breakfast is good and other times the buffet entrees are almost empty and it takes forever for them to refill Meeting Rooms: very nice but breakfast is overpriced, except for the meeting room in the restaurant Overall: Average

Thank you for your offering your comments as well as your quick email response confirming that you had not stayed at our hotel. Your experience with our breakfast buffet will be reviewed for training as it is unusual that it ran low and certainly goes against the experience that we set out to deliver to the guests of Tattinger's Restaurant....

Travelled to Barrie on business and was very pleased with this hotel. Staff are very friendly, particularly in the restaurant and at the front desk. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the beds were super comfy. Really liked the heated floors in the bathrooms. Food at the restaurant was good and breakfast buffet selection was very good and replenished often.... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for two nights in April 2014. We stayed in a standard room with two twin beds. The beds were comfortable with a choice of soft or firm pillows. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. It had a frig and microwave. The hotel restaurant is quite nice. We had their... More

Stayed here for one night while on business. People that give this property a good review must not get out much. This hotel still allows smoking and you can smell it in most hallways. I couldn't believe it. This must be the last smoking hotel left. Maybe the City of Barrie hasn't found them yet. Rooms seemed clean but old... More

My hotel room was unbelievable! When I walked in, the carpet had been vaccuumed thoroughly, INCLUDING along the walls! There wasn't a stitch of dirt, dust or cobwebs anywhere in this room. The beds were so luxurious....I can't even find a word to describe the best sleep I've ever had. They have the pillow cases embroidered "FIRM" and "SOFT", so... More

Visit was like any other business stay - work late, sleep and get up to start the next day. Coldest day on record and my truck would not start in the morning. Alerted the staff at the desk and two of the maintenance guys came out and used their personal vehicle to give me a boost. Their power battery pack... More

Booked this room for a hockey tournament. Room is spacious and clean, staff was great the only downfall was that there was a strong cigarette smell as you walked to your room in the hallway. Our room was non smoking but I gather that the others around were not.

This morning my spouse took me to Tattinger's for Sunday brunch, and we are sure to be back again. The food was fantastic! There was such a great variety of breakfast and lunch items, each more tantalizing than the next. However, what I really enjoyed was Chef Paul's obvious passion for his work. He demonstrated pride, enthusiasm, and hospitality. We... More
