My wife and I seldom give a perfect score but The Briars comes close to it. This is our 4th stay in the past 8 years and we will definitely return for more. Contrary to a few detractors' reviews, we found the employees to be professional, obliging, and willing to spend a few moments chatting about mutual interests, their families,... More

Quaint and lovely hotel. Visited with my nieces and sister for a pre Christmas getaway. Lovely clean rooms, we even had a working fireplace in our room. Food was very good. Had drinks in the cozy bar and played board games. Pool and hot tub were a hit with the six year old. Nice surroundings and a fire burned in... More

We were there for the New Year's Eve package (2 nights) POSITIVES: Great New Year's Eve buffet dinner. Quality, variety, taste, and value were good. Chef accommodated gluten-free diet as requested very well. Even though not to our taste, the music and band were good. Overall decor and atmosphere was good. Provided welcome drink and party favors and NYE midnight... More

My husband and I wanted a little winter getaway and chose the Briars because the pictures and reviews looked excellent. We are young and recently married, and we're simply looking for a private, romantic little cottage to unwind after Christmas. The area is lovely and very private. We stayed in a Lakeside Cottage. We got a gas fireplace and a... More

I frequently drive to The Briars for lunch with a special friend or two. It is a nice "getaway" drive from Toronto and in a beautiful setting. Yet, many York Region folks and city-slickers still don't know about it. My husband and I have also stayed and enjoyed the ambience ...it's not a perfect stay but overall a lovely experience...

My partner and I returned from The Briars from an overnight food and spa getaway. We started with the Keswick Santa Claus parade and then just chilled in our room. Not the most fanciest of all rooms but comfy. Dinner was fantastic. My wife said the veggie option was far too salty for her. I enjoyed my pork medallions (could... More

We wanted a 1 night getaway without a long drive. We stayed midweek in Boat House F overlooking the water and we walked the 1/2 mile back to the inn for our meals. The price was right. the staff were very accommodating. There were few guests in the dining room or swimming pool and we had a long leisurely meals.... More

my wife and i celebrated our anniversary at The Briars on a last minute decision. We were able to get a Woodland cottage (Fairway) for the Saturday night and 2 meals included (dinner & breakfast) for a reasonable price. Our cottage was perfect. Off the beaten path, overlooking the 18th hole. King bed, sitting area, private patio and a jetted... More

My wife and I just returned from a weekend at The Briars with my 90 year old mother. Because of her love of water views, we made sure to book one of the waterfront cabins (Shelter). While the entire weekend was overcast, we were able to avoid any rain and the views of the wind-lashed Lake Simcoe were fantastic. The... More
