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

Our family celebrated Thanksgiving weekend at the Briars (there was 6 adults and 2 children) We took walks, swam in the pool, our sons-in-law played golf and our daughters visited the spa and our meals were absolutely lovely. Our rooms were all in the same area and very comfortable. Staff was very attentive. This is our 28th year of visiting... More

We stayed at the Briars over this thanksgiving weekend. We got one of the rooms in the lakeside cottages. The cottage was a bit of a walk from the main inn, but the view was fantastic and right on lake simcoe. The property itself is absolutely outstanding in beauty. As it was thanksgiving, the fall colours were in full display.... More

The Briars has an excellent laid back atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. Access to the lake and a top quality golf course are a plus. The meals were very good and contrary to other posts the service was prompt but not rushed. The Inn could use a little freshening up and the 8:00 Breakfast start time is a little inconvenient for...

Husband and I visited 2 weekends ago and enjoyed our stay. The weather was a little wet but we still had fun (hikes, biking, rec. games, etc.). The bedrooms and overall decor of the resort was a bit old - but very clean. No complaints on service, everyone was very nice and helpful. I was worried on food service and... More

I live in the area and just wanted a good massage. The staff in the spa were very welcoming, cheerful, and helpful. The RMT was excellent and knowledgable about her job but not too chatty so that I could relax and enjoy my massage. From what I saw the spa is very clean and well run. I met the Spa... More

Stayed here for a quick getaway and a birthday celebration. Clean, cosy establishment with a relaxed attitude. Both the main dining room and the pub have relaxed service, which in this case is not a good thing. In both places, it took forever to get our food, but both cases it was was very good. The reception staff was not... More

We've stayed there several times over the years. We gave up a few years ago as we couldn't handle what the management refers to as 'relaxed dining'. It takes literally hours to have dinner. This summer we tried again. The pool is great. There's lots of activities for the whole family. But we sat down for dinner at 6:00 (the... More

Good Afternoon Robert. Thank you so much for your comments. We are sorry you found the fine dining experience a little long. We are so pleased the pre-ordering option worked. We are now suggesting it more often to families in a rush. It's a nice solution - the same choice of fresh, flavourful meals in a fine-dining setting - and... More

We recently stayed at the Briars Hotel for 2 nights. Although the food was decent and the bed comfortable, we would not recommend it. They lose track of the fact that they have 'guests' and do not oblige or accommodate at all. Whether you have asked and been told you could have an early check in, or whether you had... More

Good Afternoon Chris. Thank you so much for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed the food and the bed. It's not completely clear what went wrong, but we are so sorry. It sounds as if you found the meal plan wasn't suited to your plans. If so, we offer our breakfast plan at most seasons so you can choose... More
