stayed at this hotel for 6 days for a convention. Upon checking, was a little confusing as they had me booked for two rooms, after that all was great...the rooms were very nice and clean. The uniqueness of this hotel is amazing... The view outside is spectacular... The convention rooms were large and very accommodating to our needs... The staff... More

We had a room on the 6th floor with a partial lake view, but it was really about an 80% view of the lake, which was awesome. I know renovations are ongoing at this hotel, so I'm not sure if all rooms/floors have been done, but our 6th floor room was newly renovated and it was really nice, modern and... More

We just spent on our Anniversary at the hotel. Great location. Clean, modern rooms. Great view of the lake. All staff in the hotel were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The only thing i could recommend is maybe a Continental breakfast. They don't have a pool. You can use the community Centre pool....weird. Nice areas to sit outside.

Have been coming for the last 3 years, love the lake view. Rooms are on the expensive side. Staff was awesome, had a problem with the air conditioner, I received a fan and made arrangements to receive another room for the next day. We were then placed on the 6th floor in a newly renovated room. Was fabulous. I'm guessing... More

The view of the lake from my room was awesome. The bed was very comfortable as well as comfy pillows. The staff was very friendly and courteous! They gave suggestions on local places to eat. All were good choices. The only complaint I have if you could even call it one. In the afternoon with the curtains open the sun... More

My family stayed on the 6th floor of this beautiful hotel. The view on the lake side was beautiful, and even better at sunset. We didn't think to close the curtains to cover the full length windows during the day, and we came back to a HOT room. We ended up buying a fan to use in the room. It... More

Dear ChristinaM233, Thank you for your wonderful review of our hotel! We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately in the summer months the windows do tend to heat up the room during the day if the blinds remain open. We do offer complimentary fans for our guests if the rooms become too warm. I apologize that... More

We had stayed at this hotel when it was a Best Western 4 years ago. Check-in was quick but we were disappointed to learn they no longer had a swimming pool. We were offered use of the community pool across the road, but decided against it. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom could certainly... More

Dear Debi204, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. There is a new ownership changeover couple months ago and we are planning to renovate all the hotel rooms especially the bathroom after summer. We will take extra caution to choose the new towel rail. I am glad you enjoy the lake view and see you next year... More

Looks like some changes are taking place, hopefully for the better. We stayed there for a whole weekend in June 2013 and it had been great. This time around, not so much, the A/C system kept kicking on every 10 minutes or so throughout the whole night. Otherwise the room was clean if not spacious, good bed and a great... More

Went back to stay for our anniversary as we stayed there 13 years ago for our honeymoon nite. I did mention this when we booked and when we have booked for a special occasion at many other locations around the world; there has always been some acknowledgement. None here! Had the Executive suite which was nicely upgraded. Disappointed no pool... More

Agree with many reviewers that this is the best in the area. Have arrived several time on trips from Winnipeg to Ottawa and appreciated the view and the clean, comfortable rooms. Last time it was BUSY at the restaurant and it took a while to be served but the staff were very accommodating.
