We stayed in a studio room with two queen and a pull-out couch from Dec 26-28. The room was adequate in terms of sleeping space (2 adults and 2 pre-teens). Quite dated interior and furnishings. Still had a tube TV and the bathroom had semi-peeing wall paper. Semi-private laundry facilities (shared with the adjacent 2BR unit) was a bonus. Very... More

We have stay at Carriage Hill 4 times over the last 10 years and we have never been disappointed.  (We own in Ottawa and trade for here.) Not sure why I have never written a review.  I guess we were having too much fun. We love the space, quiet, comfy beds and sofa beds, blackout blinds (the kids can play... More

Nice place but be prepared to sign your life away. $100 holding fee to make sure you leave the room in order. The indoor pool desk receptionist is a Pit Bull. Ask for a corner room. Found it not to be as noisy. Friends of ours complained about the noise in there section.

The two of us had a week in Mid September. The unit was perfect - spacious, clean, bathrooms were well appointed (including the fully working jacuzzi tub). Nice range of complimentary things in the kitchen. Staff were very helpful.

Carriage Hills Resort was at one time a top notch place to stay, I say WAS, it is now a tired, the decor is circa 1980's, noisy fridge, only half the jets in the jetted tub barely worked, marble floors were badly cracked, tile counter tops were a big give away as to the age (who does tile counter tops...

Spent the weekend in a studio at Hills. I believe that this was our 11th visit to the Hills/Ridge complex and have stayed in studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units. This time I stayed in a studio since there were just two adults. When considering all the visits we have had at the Hills/Ridge complex I think that this... More

Have been coming here since it opened. Sorry to say that it is not being updated as one would hope. Especially the electronics - TVs are big and clunky, music system is for CDs, but most disappointing: the internet is EXCRUCIATINGLY slow. If you expect to chill with your iPad at the end of the day, not possible. Luckily, improvements... More
