Stayed at this Holiday Inn for a week on business. Very nice Breakfast Buffet at a reasonable price. Nice fresh fruit every day...good selection of breakfast items including eggs cooked to your liking. Rooms were well kept by housekeeping staff. Very friendly front staff. Highly recommended. Will return next time in the area on business...or pleasure.

Last year I stopped at the holiday and it's a handy place to stay, went on the 400 near to Barrie but there was room for improvement. This year, it has improved - very comfortable, very friendly and very helpful. Shame the TV menu was unavailable due to an upgrade.
