4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I took my father and his partner to The Briars for a 95th birthday lunch. The food met my expectations, the service and location did not. They said they would celebrate his dessert: they did not, completely forgot. The young waitress was not up to a 4 star location. She was inexperienced, lacked attentiveness and approach. She did not even... More

We visited The Briars with a young child (age 6), parents, and a grandparent. All of us were very comfortable in our main inn rooms, and found the resort easy to navigate. We really enjoyed the slow pace of the Briars, the clean Lake Simcoe, and made use of all the summer activities that were included in our stay. From... More

We've been to the Briars three times, almost always as a three generation trip, friends of ours also got married at the Briars. We love the charm of the Briars - you really can't beat it. It's like time stood still a bit and for me, that's wonderful and I like exposing my kids to that. The place is quiet,... More

Specifically asked that the table we reserved for dinner not have any torn chairs as 2 couples we meeting up with us & have never been their before. They said yes they would do that and do something special as we were celebrating 2 early bdays & anniversary. NOTHING was done and torn chair was there - Very disappointing.

This was our second visit, once in March 2012 and now in the summer. The service and food was excellent both times. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is an interesting blend of a very old manor house and more modern additions. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There are lots of activities included: waterfront with canoes,...

We spent 2 nights at one of the Briar's cottages. My husband golfed one day and I had a spa treatment. Both of those activities were lovely but....the cottage was very, very "tired". Needs updating in bedrooms, living room and bathrooms. The living room is very poorly designed with the couch facing the TV and a very old fireplace. The... More

I attended a training at The Briars from June 14 - 27, 2015 and I loved every minute of it. Our training was held in the Summer Dining house which allowed us our own space and it felt like home. I stayed onsite from June 21 - 27 and I must say, it was the icing on the cake. We... More

The company I work for always uses the Briars to hold conferences several times a year. It allows us to get away from the city to focus, relax and enjoy some amazing food. The food and the service is top notch and the manager at the restaurant does a fantastic job, making sure you are taken care of. The golf... More

We went to this Inn for our anniversary on the May long weekend. We used a travelzoo coupon. Our dinner and breakfast were included in our stay. We had a couples massage that was very nice. The spa is very quiet and private. Very nice ambience. Our room was in the adjoining wing of the news section of the hotel... More
