We returned to this hotel after two years for our anniversary on Friday July 3/15. We booked an king/business waterfront room and asked for as high up as possible. When we arrived in Peterborough around noon, we checked in and received a room on the 4th floor. We left and did some things and returned later. The room as usual... More

My (now) husband and I got married in Peterborough towards the end of May. Being from out of town, we booked into the Holiday Inn for a few nights. We had a number of family staying there as well and had decided to host a BBQ dinner the night before the wedding. We were provided a private room along with... More

Shan (bartender), Lynn (housekeeping), and Michelle (booking) made my stay very pleasant and enjoyable. Shan knows how to make a proper martini. Lynn gave some personal touches. Facilities were decent and location of the hotel on the river was great.

I don't agree with Lawrence2300 that this hotel is a 'dump', but I do think that it needs work. The decor looks dated and the place smells musty. We grew to like our room on the first floor. It was tired, but very quiet. We slept well. On the positive side the hotel has a restaurant and bar and in... More

Simply put: this hotel is a dump - well beyond any 'best before' date. The owners should shame themselves in trying to stretch the desert need for renovations. Noisy AC units, lumpy beds, disgusting bathroom tiles. Need I say more. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some of the finest front desk and restaurant personnel. Great folks, sucky environment....

Try to book a room in the low numbers, With about 50 rooms per floor, this place makes you walk a mile to get from check-in to the high numbers. (If you return after midnight, you can only get in the front door.) Restaurant overlooks the river and is a nice place to sit for meals. Breakfast has a buffet... More

Thank you for your review of the Holiday Inn Peterborough Waterfront!

Other than that, we are happy that you enjoyed the location of our hotel and our downtown area and... More

I stayed at this property recently while in Peteborough and was delighted with the high level of service from the friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful. The room was well appointed (river view) and the bed was very comfortable. I had breakfast in the hotel restaurant which, although a bit pricey, was tasty and well... More

From our first conversation, the folks at Holiday Inn Peterborough Waterfront were helpful, attentive, professional. I worked with catering first of all to plan the reception for my mother's memorial--we had lots of questions, details to manage and changes throughout the planning period; every request was met with efficiency and care. The event was beautiful and this was certainly helped... More

When you travel for work all you can hope for is a consistently good room and bed. this hotel is not brand new but it's clean, well laid out, nice TV, comfy linens and great pillows. The front staff were beyond helpful, which is so refreshing after 4 hour drive. I'm very happy

Overall, this is a great place to stay and dine. However, the condition of the parking lot is sad. It badly needs repaving. The parking lot also makes a bad and mistaken first impression about the condition and upkeep of the property. A second point: For seniors, the height of the toilet bowls seem very low. Those with knee or... More
