Looking for a place not too far from home, just a short getaway. I must say we found the best when we booked a room at the Port Albert Inn. It was a short but beautiful drive from London, the Innkeepers were great, as was breakfast & I loved the ambience and all the local history!

The Port Albert Inn is full of history & alot of nooks & crannies to investigate. I would not say it was luxurious but it was wonderful in its' own way. I had a great little room with all I needed. It was a quiet, relaxing enviornment & the owners (father & son) were very helpful & full of wonderful... More

This was our last stop on a 4 day road trip. I found it on the internet and prebooked the 2 bedroom suite for 4 adults. I have to say it was one of the highlights of our trip. It was everything I was hoping for and more. We arrived about 5 pm and it was getting a little chilly.... More

We checked in late and were greeted by a very friendly man. He was very informative of the area and had great recommendations for food. The atmosphere was very tranquil. They had candles lit on the tables inside and out as well as going up the stairs. The room was very clean and the bed was comfy. The next morning... More

This is not a new fancy hotel but an inn from the 1800's. It has lots of character and we enjoyed visiting with Mark, the owner, who is very knowledgable and interesting. The breakfast was great, eggs, bacon, homemade bread and fresh fruit. If you want a place with character and friendly proprietors, it is perfect. Beach within walking distance... More

stayed one night in September '15 while on a long weekend road trip. Angus was welcoming and friendly on our arrival and checked us in with no fuss. Breakfast was well organized and plentiful. Not fancy but all or more than you could need and served with equal friendliness. Our room was very nice, it's an old inn and the... More

I've stayed at the inn several times in the last 11 years. I've always found Mark and Angus welcoming and accommodating. Mark knows a lot about the area and shares great stories. I usually stay at the inn in November and March, the wood stove makes the lounge a great place to sit and read and hear Mark's stories. I... More

Stepping through the original 19th century doors was like stepping onto a movie set. From the vintage crokinole boards on the wall to the cedar boat mounted upside down complete with trout jumping at bait on the ceiling you know this is someplace different. Breakfast is fit for a Lumberjack. The dam on the Nine Mile River, where the Ministry... More
