It ended up being a really tiny place that didn't have the resources you would expect at a resort. We did not receive a bottle of wine, as advertised in the travelzoo deal. This group of men (in their 40s!) treated the place like a frat house, partying till late and we couldn't sleep. No one was at the front... More

This is a very good resort in the middle of nowhere. Well maintained and friendly staff. They should fix WiFi and provide it on all the floors with proper signal. Continental breakfast is well served. Also, fix their pool ASAP.

Let me start by saying that all positive reviews about this place must have been written by the staff or friends of the owners. If you manage to find this place because all GPS' s cannot pin point this address, your jaw will drop when you first pull into the driveway. The building looks like an insane asylum on Statton...

We had plans to stay at a family member's cottage in the Haliburton area, so when we saw a Travelzoo available for South Algonquin Resort we decided to add a couple of days onto our trip and buy the deal. We decided to purchase the Travelzoo deal after researching the resort’s website as well as reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.... More

I enjoyed the stay. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly. The lake was not on the property it was adjacent. The black flies are murder. They provide a light continental breakfast which included apples, oranges, cereal, tea (black tea only) or coffee, juice and toast. There is a pub that opens at noon and stays open until 8... More

We booked at the last minute for a stopover on the way to Ottawa. When we called we were advised that the hotel was not fully open for the season, but that we could be accommodated if we only wanted a room. The rate quoted was excellent, and we booked expecting a regular room and minimal service. The room actually... More

We booked a 2 night stay through Travelzoo at the South Algonquin Resort. I followed the link in the details prior to booking and saw favorable reviews under the White Pine name. It seems the resort may have changed hands yet again. The photos on the website show quite nice suites with a 4 poster bed, a sitting area, large... More

I visited the website prior to booking and saw all the amenities offered. The reality was not what was offered. The beach is not on site it is about 2 miles away on an unmarked road that led to a beach with an unfinished dock and an old dilapidated cottage. No bathroom facilities on site and no sign o paddle... More
