This is a sold, well-run hotel that is comfortable and without problems. It is a lovely building well situated on a bay with good walking paths. The staff are superbly friendly and competent. The breakfast arrangement was especially good.

First, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the wonderful staff at this hotel. We initially drove to Sauble Beach for vacation and our accommodations there did not work out. We decided to head for Toronto instead and finish our vacation. I fell ill for a few days and on a Statutory Holiday we found ourselves in Owen... More

The room was great, the dining room,food and service was exceptional. We where asked by the server as she took our order,if there was any allergy concerns. At breakfast the hotel manager came around asking how our stay had been. What a nice surprise. We definitely would stay here again if our travels took us to Owen Sound.

Great setting, right on the bay! Helpful staff. Very clean rooms. Quiet at night. The free breakfast offers very little variety, though. Hiking and biking trails nearby. Plenty of great beaches within 30 minute drive. Great scenic drives nearby in Beaver Valley.

This was not my first time at this hotel and it won't be my last. The location is ideal because it is set away from the main street but close enough. The hotel and facilities are clean and well maintained although they don't have a pool only two whirlpools. There is no beach to speak of so a pool would... More

We were in Owen Sound to visit the area. Staff was very friendly. Beautiful location, you can picnic near water and go for a nice walk. Hotel room is very specious and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was good as well. Overall a really nice stay. We sure will go back if we visit the area.
