Stayed one night and that was enough. When we got into our room there was very musty smell. We also noticed lots of little flying bugs in the room but the bathroom was covered in them. The hotel is very dated and the air conditioning was a window unit and very old and noisy. The pool was murky. It included... More

Clean rooms but needs updating. Wi-Fi reception very poor even in the reception area. Breakfast was good and could order a cooked breakfast for an extra price. Caters for tour groups and there were 2 during the time we stayed. There was "entertainment." Don't know if this was available if no tours booked. The one we watched was an Elvis... More

Stayed for on night and it was okay. It's a very tired resort they have tried to update. Used the pool which was okay it was somewhat murky but warm enough. Not much shade around pool when there are lots of people there. Rooms are air conditioned by window units which makes it a bit noisy. The rooms were clean... More

I simply loved the ambiente there! The pool was great - although they close it at night. Breakfast was good as well. The rooms are nice too, a bit dark, but still okay. Unfortunatelly they turn off the wifi at night, but during the day the wifi was great! :) I will come back!

Small room, pool was not clean. Wifi didn't work. Felt it was not worth the money. Would have been okay if cheaper. We did get breakfast. Rooms were clean. The layout was nice and it was quiet and in the quieter part of town (about 3kms on road out of town) Not sure if we'd stay here again at this... More

I went on a bus trip with Sookram bus tours from Sudbury Ontario, with a friend to the 1000 Islands and we stayed at the Colonial Resort and Spa in Gananoque Ontario. The resort was very nice and all breakfasts and suppers were included as well as the day excursions on this 5 day trip. The grounds were lovely and... More

I went on holidays with my family, spent 2 nights. This is a road motel, very close to Gananoque (15 minutes walk). General facilities and environment are very good and nice: one outdoor swimming pool, and indoor swimming pool with sauna and massage room. Nice dinning room and average breakfast. Staff very attentive and nice. The room was not very... More

I guess when you return to a certain place year after year, there must be something special when you get there. The owners and workers are so nice, and make sure we are well looked after. What more would you want than a comfortable room, great food, entertainment every night and lots of things to do on site. Then there... More

I traveled with a seniors group and was very pleased with our experience. We were greeted by the managers, had all the amenities explained to us when we arrived including easy access routes. Our group was placed in rooms next to each other which made for great socializing. Within an hour, one of the managers arrived to check out a... More
