I have been visiting Bristol Harbour for 25 years. I never get tired of the golf course. There is a wonderful variety of holes. I have visited with a variety of groups. Large group of guys, family group, couples and only a couple of us. Bristol caters well to all of us. The hotel & cottages afford a good choice... More

Just got back from another couples trip to our Favourite Resort in Upstate NY. Once again we stayed in the cottages and loved them. They are so modern, spacious and clean. I am terrible at remembering names but great service from Becky who books our reservations, to the front desk at check in and friendly service in the Pro Shop... More

Book condos with caution. The Resort has a number of Cliffside Drive condos they manage and rent under the Bristol Harbour name. We stayed in a 2/2; lake view was great (expansive) but the condo did not meet expectations: very old carpet and furnishings, moldy smell (even shower curtain rings were moldy), cobwebs all over the outside patio (not cleaned)...

First time visit to this magnificent resort - breathtaking views of the lake. The entire complex is finished perfectly for the setting - pine, wrought iron, log/twig furnishings. We stayed in the lower level of the three level 'hotel' complex. All floors afford an excellent view - top floors would have a better view and less foot traffic. Our room... More

I recently stayed at the Bristol Harbour Resort for a ski weekend. The room was absolutely gorgeous, clean and such a warming ambiance to it. It was just like a wood cabin in the woods, complete with a gas fireplace, the chairs/bed made from wood with the tree trunk finish. The bed was so damn comfortable and clean. The coup... More

I been to Bristol Harbour Resort many times and always find the charm, food, and service superb. The view overlooking Canandaigua Lake is spectacular in every season. The Robert Trent Jones designed golf course is challenging as well as beautiful. In the winter one can actually cross country ski on the course with marked trails all along the way. A... More

The food was great. Service at the restaurant was super fast. The room was adorable. The walls were thin and we could hear people's footsteps all night above us and their tv was on until after 1am. Don't get a ground level room. We were in room 102. Bring earplugs. What helped was turning the fan on the heater on... More

Stayed here for one night in December. Actually I'm laying in bed here right now. What a great place. I've stayed a lot of places and this ranks up near the top. This resort is overlooking the lake and has charming little ski resort type rooms. The bathroom floor is freaking heated! We also have a fireplace in our room... More

This resort was extremely clean and beautiful. We attended a warhammer tournament that was held in "the great room" where the view was overlooking an outstanding view. Although there is not a wide variety of food choices, the food they did serve was still good. i would say it deserves 5 stars but unfortunately the staff was EXTREMELY unpleasant. Most... More
