We stayed at this place two separate times in a week. The first night was fine other than the cable tv was frozen. To be fair we didn't ask the desk to fix it. Breakfast was fine - nothing too special. The second time we stayed here was no where near as nice. When our keys didn't work we asked... More

I wanted to stay at the Waddling Dog since reading the name. TA reviews were pretty good so we stayed for a couple of nights. The facility is older, but trying for charm. The breakfast room is in a room that looks like a library or drawing room. Actually breakfast was the only disappointment for the stay. Both days, there... More

Character hotel, very welcoming staff, rooms were very large and clean. Dated style, but it was part of the charm. I will absolutely book in here again. Was awesome to have such a clean hotel that welcomes dogs. Most put you in some crappy smoky room, this hotel was wonderful with my two Italian Greyhounds.

The rooms are spacious, good lighting, breakfast included was nice & included scrambled eggs & bacon. I had no complaints with the hotel however, it's not in the most scenic area but only minutes from Sydney with a prettier view.

Pretty much your run of the mill hotel. Price was reasonable, the staff were friendly, and room was clean. Place is pretty dated, but some might just call it "Character". The continental breakfast exceeded our expectations though, fresh eggs (real eggs), fresh bacon(real bacon) and fresh potatoes (REAL POTATOES!). Also there is a McDonald's across the street.....

We arrived an hour early for check-in after only a couple of hours sleep, a very early airport arrival, and a five hour flight, plus the ferry ride from Vancouver so we were very tired. Even though we were so early a room was given to us by the receptionist who was fast, friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the... More

I didn't stay at this property but would have liked to if I did not have to cancel my reservation. The receptionist, Elaine, was extremely pleasant and very helpful over the phone, when I had to cancel my upcoming reservation due to unforeseen circumstances. Customer service is so important these days, and Elaine gets 5 stars! If I am in... More
