The Southview is really the best hotel in town. It doesn't have very many rooms and you will want to stay in the new section, but it just doesn't get any better than this. The new rooms are large and very new. It is very quiet at this hotel. Their restaurant (on the same property) is wonderful as well.

There was a group of us who made the trip to Kenora for a family reunion of sorts and the group of us stayed at Southview Inn. While we didn't spend much time at the hotel itself we did find the rooms to be extremely comfortable and functional for what we needed. The beds and pillows were wonderful and the... More

Recently spent a couple days at the inn as a first time visitor. We found the room extremely comfortable and a definite step up from a traditional hotel. Very quiet with a, great view. The restaurant is one of kenora's best and the service was great. We do travel a lot so it's not our first rodeo so to speak.... More

This hotel was recommended by a local and we were not disappointed. I dropped my wife off well before the standard check-in time as I was continuing on to Dryden, and the staff made every effort to make my wife comfortable. She had a recent knee surgery and was unable to negotiate the stairs to the bistro. A staff member... More

I had looked this Inn up on the internet, for directions, which by the way are less than useful. We arrived after dark and registration is in the Bistro. We were given a key and pointed in the right direction of the rooms. As the Inn sits on the top of a hill, it was down a set of steps... More

This is a Bistro/Restaurant that happens to also have an inn attached to it, that was my first impression as I checked in at the bar of the bistro. I made an online reservation based on their website info. When I arrived I had to fill out a card with my details, which I had already entered online when I... More

The Southview is the best place to stay in Kenora. The spot is quiet and the rooms are very private. I often stay there on business and have a great sleep. The staff are great as is the attached restaurant. Many rooms have a separate sitting area and some have large bathtubs. Great for relaxing after a workday. The streets... More

Our stay here was comfortable and enjoyable. The owners and employees were all very pleasant and friendly and went out of their way to ensure a nice stay. The rooms are not large but are comfortable. The inn also has a restaurant attached to it which is very convenient. We have eaten at the restaurant before and it is very... More

we stayed at the Southview Inn for one night in March 2012. The suite we were given was very clean, the bed was comfortable and it was a truly pleasant experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sunday brunch at the bistro was terrific. Highly recommended!
