The dinner package included appetizers, entree, desert, wine and a specialty coffee. The food was delicious, the service was friendly, it was great experience from check in to check out. The dinner package was a great... More

The beds were so comfortable, the restaurant meal was outstanding, and the room had a real homey / cottage feel. The hotel was easily located with good parking. Hotel staff very professional and helpful.

We have tried other hotels, most of them on the waterfront in Kingston, but none of them compare to the Fireside Inn. This hotel has such a nice feel. The hotel and rooms are always exceptionally clean and the staff warm. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and we always have a wonderful nights' sleep. The free breakfast included... More

Excellent bed, good breakfast -- sound value for Kingston. Room was upgraded to a King bed and very comfortable. We ate on location at Tom's Place and had a wonderful dining experience, felt more like a home than a restaurant.

The hotel is ideal for my purposes and I will continue to frequent the Fireside Inn. I am looking for changes which I think will enhance the overall product i.e. accommodate dietary needs, use organic and locally produced foods wherever possible.

We stayed at this hotel for the Queen's University open house and were very impressed by this hotel. The room was very clean and large with a fireplace. Overall, the room was very quaint (country style) and comfortable. The breakfast (free) was amazing and restaurant style with lots of room. The staff was very polite and nice. A great experience!

We attended a wedding celebration near Kingston and stayed at this hotel. The room we had was spacious and although obviously older than a new hotel, very comfortable. The food in the restaurant is excellent which is a change from many other hotels, in fact we would choose to go to this restaurant even if we were not staying here.... More

The rooms are very shabby. The drains are clogged. The front desk seemed annoyed when we checked in and checked out. We seemed to be an inconvenience to them. The tickets for the "free breakfast" say gratuity not included. Why would you tip when you have to serve yourself your entire breakfast? I was also lucky enough to grab a... More

The setting and the room was lovely. The hot tub was delightful.However, the bed had a huge swale in the middle that we kept rolling into. The most important thing in a hotel room is a clean comfortable bed. If you can't get a good night's sleep, go elsewhere.
