This property has cottages as well as really run down motel looking building. When I booked this place I was under the impression I would have an Independant room. The room wasn't very clean. Had mosquitos in the room because the screen had a tear in it. The air conditioning unit had a really foul smell in the air. Good... More

Hello, We are all quite confused by your review. We do have cottages at our property and a very nice motel, but we do not have a pub any where near our property. There is a higher end restaurant next door called Rachael's, but it was never closed for any private event all summer. All our rooms and cottages are... More

We arrived after a very long day on the road. We were greeting by staff that were very friendly and so helpful. Our room was small but clean and more than adequate. I must say that I am big on helpful and friendly staff, and we had both! The meal and the "Anne Attraction" vouchers made our per day expenses... More

We were originally given a room in the main building which was rather small, you could very much hear the conversations in the next room and the room itself, although very clean was quite dated. We asked the staff if we were able to switch to a cabin and they were super helpful and were able to move us to... More

Hello Roxanne, Thanks for the lovely review. I should note that our Inn has a number of smaller older rooms which represent an excellent bargain. There are, however, also six large and very modern luxury suites. It may be that they were all full at the time of your stay. I am glad we were able to place you in... More

Wonderfully friendly, superbly clean and spacious, with everything a young family could need. If you stay in the newer section, the play structure is right out front of your patio deck where we spent most of our time. Staff came in to refresh towels daily which we were pleasantly surprised by. Larger pool was fantastic for kids. While the complex... More

We stayed at this location for 3 nights in August 2015. Shining Waters is very close the the National Park. It's the only perk of staying at this location. During our 3 night stay, our tank ran of of propane, our dishwasher stopped working, our toilet leaked and our shower was plugged. The deck appeared to be rotted and the... More

My apologies for the issues you incurred during your recent stay. This has been our busiest summer in the last 15 years and clearly we have been somewhat overwhelmed by the volume. For over seven weeks we have been completely full and evidently we have not been able to fix all issues before the next guest has arrived. All of... More

Stayed in the three-bedroom deluxe cottage - the dishwasher didn't work (I think they knew that before we checked in) and we have a family of 5 staying for a week. They tried to fix it but after two tries, it didn't work. Oven didn't work, DVD didn't work, BBQ ran out of gas and the tank sat for two... More

The inn needs to be updated. The carpet is musty smelling in the main building. I used the common bathroom and the wallpaper was peeling off of the wall and the faucets were not clean. Our queen room was spacious and it had been cleaned adequately, however, everything in the Inn needs an update. No coffee maker, phone, or fridge... More

We recently spent a week in the executive cottage and found the unit to be very comfortable and a nice size. The resort is simple, but is very clean, has good amenities and is an excellent location - very close to Green Gables and within an easy and scenic walking distance to Cavendish Beach. The staff are friendly and provided... More

It was our first visit. It was quite large and had a lot in one spot for kids to see and do. I would recommend a shady spot put in around the splash pad. Parents are forced to stand or sit in the heat while keeping an eye on the young ones. Water slides were run well and lines weren't... More
