August 16,2014 I attended a wedding at this Holiday Inn. I was really impressed with the entire event. The ceremony was held in a small intimate room, there was no outside noise from the lobby or other guests even though the room was very near the main doors. More importantly I was delighted by the food. Appetizers of Beef Wellington,... More

stayed here for just a night on business. I wasn't particularly impressed by the carpet or installations in the room, but not worthy of a complaint for the price. the hot breakfast was plentiful of average quality, so adequate for a good start to the day.

We booked with Mandy and the service was impeccable! Our weekend was quiet and relaxing. The hotel was clean and well maintained. Breakfast buffet was excellent! The hotel was also close to so many ammenties that we were able to enjoy walking to the mall and restaurants instead of driving.

It was wonderful to have a smoking room option, but I really needed a king sized bed also. Other than that food was excellent we had a wonderful banquet! The staff was accommodating in every way. The smoking rooms are tired looking and I am sure an upgrade is in the works soon. The location to all restaurants and shopping... More

We stayed for two nights as our first choice, the Delta, was fully booked for our arrival night in Guelph. Check-in was friendly and efficient, room was dated and tired but clean enough. The carpet really needs replacing and please, please, please throw out the worn-out armchair already. The room itself didn't smell of smoke, but you will occasionally smell... More

When my client booked the reservation, I was very skeptical but this Holiday Inn was a cut above the others I've stayed at. Comfortable, clean room and very good breakfast buffet included with waitresses and good coffee. The only thing odd was charging $3.50 for a large bottle of water.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for an early arrival at the Aberfoyle market. The hotel has a lovely lobby with restaurant and pool area. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. A nice touch is the atrium format, where you can step outside your room and look down at the lobby and pool. The service was... More

The hotel from the outside looked tired. We choose this hotel for the pool/sauna and the fact that before this, Holiday Inns did not disappoint in delivering quality.
