We have stayed at this hotel many times before and we were again pleased to stay there. The room was quiet and comfortable and.we also enjoyed our breakfast in the hotel dining room. We chose not to eat dinner at the hotel, although we have done so numerous times before. (We prefer to eat at the nearby Blue Roof Bistro... More

Very impressed with the updated, clean room. The hot tub and indoor pool were excellent, and my hubby loved the sauna. Especially liked the grab bar for getting in and out of the tub. The bed is very comfortable and everything feels like new. Very impressed with the high speed wireless We were even able to use our MagicJack phone... More

Personable, helpful staff at all levels. Excellent clean accommodation and restaurant. Food was wonderful, morning coffee hit the spot! Close to park with trails for walking/hiking and downtown stores! Bancroft is a lovely little town and this hotel is close to everything it has to offer!

We stopped in Bancroft during our 3500 kms trip around Canada, and our travel agent booked for us this hotel...if you stay in Bancroft, I am not sure that other businesses can be recommended, but that one was no more than average. The front desk was managed by two women, one reasonably friendly and professional, the other one obviously in... More

We needed a last minute accommodation on a trip and used this place and would not recommend it at the price. Mid week price was 135+ and no breakfast. Place has seen minimal updating from the 70's with rust on the bathroom lights, etc. If you can find some other place do or get a better price on this one..

This Best Western never disappoints. We have stayed here numerous times throughout the last 5 yrs .It's clean, comfortable, has a nice size indoor pool. The Hotel is located right on the main street. Next door is a large park with many activities taking place during the summer. The Hotel is situated on a nice large parcel of land next... More

We visited Bancroft recently - we are participants of the Bancroft Gemboree - we stayed at the Best Western for the first time this year. We are very pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the luxury of having a clean Fridge and Microwave. We really relaxed this time and will definitely stay there next year. Thank you Mr....

Despite poor reviews, we booked this hotel because, basically it is the only hotel in Bancroft and rain was in the forecast, so we needed a break ! The whole experience was miserable, from the check-in lady who sat behind her screen, two counters away and never really greeted us, the price, the old musty room... Avoid at all cost,... More
