Our stay was fun and relaxing. Rooms (we had 2) are very clean and comfortable! Beds are heavenly, everyone had a great sleep! Check-in was a breeze as was the early check-out. Pool, hot tub and sauna area is quite spacious, plenty of seating and lots of natural light due to the large windows. Staff is helpful and always had... More

BW Nor'wester was a delight! We were greeted by the pleasant and very welcoming front desk staff, who saw to it that our party got a mountain view. The rooms were immaculate with tasteful appointments and a very generously sized flat screen television. Each room had a sliding glass door for access to the balcony. Wifi...blazing fast! While our group... More

I stayed at the BW for work purposes. The rooms were clean, spacious & the beds were comfy. Even though the walls were a little thin between rooms, I slept well. Housekeeping was great! The outdoor plug ins are a god send as it was -35 all week. A pleasant stay.

A wonderful haven in Northern Ontario. The Nor Wester, just a 10 minute drive from the Thunder Bay Airport was a welcoming, friendly hotel with friendly and warm staff. The accomodations are comfortable and clean and the staff make your stay enjoyable and welcoming. There is not an element of my stay that was not exceptional. The rooms have a... More

I travel to TBay on business a lot and this is my go-to place. The restaurant has great food and prompt room service. Across the road is also a great place to eat and meet. The rooms have been renovated and the suites are gorgeous!

This hotel was okay but the room was very outdated; the decor felt like it was from the 70s. It was great that it was pet friendly and family friendly. I have stayed in other BWP that were much more modern and I guess have compared this hotel to the other ones. Renovations would really help bring this hotel up.... More
