Beautiful historic building. Bit of trouble getting checked in, no one as at the desk and it took me 10 minutes to find someone. The bar/lounge was a nice place to have a drink, and it is a close walk to good restaurants nearby. Walls to the outside are a bit thin, but the rooms was gorgeous.

On Sunday evening we wanted a specail meal together. We found the Waddell restaurant quiet and welcoming. One of the evenings specials was a pasta dish with a red wine and tomato sauce and elk sausage, it was just a terrific combination of flavours, a perfect dish on a cold winters evening. The appetizer of hot mushroom and goat cheese... More

Was looking for a cute little hotel to spend a birthday night with my girlfriend - noticed the Waddell online and booked a room with a balcony overlooking the river (where we sat with a blanket on our legs listening to the water run by). As it was her birthday they offered to help make it special and succeeded planting... More

I stayed in the Waddell for one night for a short business trip. The hotel itself is an old heritage building and although I do not necessarily care about that as much, it looks very nice. Check-in was very efficient and friendly. There is a parking area besides the hotel to park your car. My room was very spacious. It... More

We stayed in 301,a spacious and comfortable room with the lovely terrace overlooking the Ganaraska River. The hotel itself is charming with a beautiful and restful bar area and a lovely restaurant on site. Check in and don't leave the hotel for one night and you will feel as if you have been away for a week. The hotel itself... More

You don't find too many inns of this splendour anymore. I literally stood in thier main dining room for a few minutes and tried to imagine all that the walls of this historic inn have witnessed over the decades, and indeed centuries. The craftsmanship of "bones" of the inn are stunning. We dined on the patio for lunch during our... More

Very nicely done spacious rooms in a Georgian style. Has a restaurant and bar in the hotel. Clean , well maintained accommodation, friendly staff. Great place to base yourself out off when exploring... More

We had the pleasure of staying in one of the best rooms in the house for two nights in April 2014. We were in Port Hope to watch the annual "Float your fanny down the Ganny" event, an annual anything-goes-as-long-as-it-floats boat race down the frigid melt-waters of the Ganaraska River. The Waddel has been very nicely restored, our room was... More

We have been to this hotel many times. Very central location, walk everywhere. We have never been to this hotel in the winter time, and I don't think we will go there again in the winter. Our room was freezing. We had the temperature at almost 85 degrees and were still cold. I know that it was extremely cold outside,... More
