Awful. There are lots of B and B options on the island. We booked last minute the day before and unfortunately did not have time to research. The 4 and 5 star reviews here are absolutely unreal in my opinion - the "negative" reviews are spot on. If you intend on booking this place my advice is check out the... More

Love to stay and very good food. We did a motocycle trip in Ontario and we hope to do it again and for sure we will come back to the same hotel. I hope that the Ontario gouvernement will move back the ferry to the center of the city. This will bring more people to the local business

We spent a night (August 19) at the General Wolfe and had a gourmet dinner there. Dinner and service were outstanding. The restaurant has a European feel and the menu was extensive: Dover sole, Duck a l'Orange, steak Diane, lamb and much more. We both had sole - took us back to meals in Belgium. Great wine list. Our table... More

Stayed at the General Wolfe in Sept 2014....What a nice place...we so enjoyed our weekend. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. Our son was marrying a young lady from the island and on a whim we decided to see Wolfe Island and stay for the weekend. The General Wolfe was so convenient, turn left from getting off the ferry and... More

I stayed here for one night to visit friends that have a cottage on the Island but had a full house, so therefore I thought I'd stay in Kingston for the evening, but then it dawned on me, hey try the General Wolfe Inn. I asked for a smaller room as it was only I staying there. The room indeed... More

Ask for the waterfront room! Great view of the lake and ferry. It is more like a motel, a very small place. Perfect for writing or for anyone who feels like being left alone from all the trouble. Very quite. If you bring your bike you can do a lot of nice riding there.

My husband and I were going to Kingston for 1 night. I found this hotel in the guidebook, on first glance we thought OH NO, we ended up loving it and staying an extra night!! Going over to Kingston on the (free) ferry to enjoy the city and coming back to the quiet was wonderful. Elizabeth was very kind to... More

This restaurant is supposed to be fine dining?? In one word, no. I had the seafood platter. I asked if the lobster was pre-frozen. I was told it was. So, then why would it have a market price...lol!! Horrible frozen lobster tail, a couple of chewy, frozen scallops, one crab leg and a cold piece of horrid fish. Cold, undercooked... More
