The hotel wasn't bad just needs a few adjustments. Make sure to ask for a water front view. Got the breakfast buffet added to the price of the room. It was in the restaurant that had a pretty nice view of the waterfront. The buffet was not bad. Eggs, bacon, sausages, bagels, bread, cereal, pastries. I still felt like there... More

A bit shabby and more costly than other nearby places. That said the location is convenient - ask for a room facing the water. Heating and cooling system a bit primitive and rooms a bit cold. Near to fast food restaurants and shopping. It's fine but not great.

My hockey team has stayed here the past two years in mid-February. I have nothing but positive things to say about the staff and accommodations here.

We stayed here for a hockey tournament. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was incredibly friendly. The food was great and kids eat free - that's a plus! All in all it's a terrific place to stay.

The hotel is definitely in need of some updating, which is apparently already planned. Also, the price per night for a hotel in its current category is too high IMO, although the lack of alternatives in the area is probably the reason... Downside: no microwave in room: i read it's $15 extra for that. Breakfast is not included. These points... More

I took 3 times walking up and down 3 flights of stairs with all my stuff between my room and the front desk (the elevator was miles down a hall the other way) as my first 3 key cards didn't work. Eventually maintenance was sent to help me - key card #8 worked! So, a bit old. The people who... More

The hotel is old and showing signs of use and abuse. About the only thing this place has going is the location. Even during the winter the frozen waterway is awesome. The hotel is way overpriced but there aren't too many other choices in town. And if you're a Priority Club member, don't hold your breath waiting for your benefits.... More

I reserved a room at this Holiday Inn in Peterborough, Ontario, by calling the tool-free number on the hotel’s website. A company called Reservation Counter made the booking.
