This is our third visit over 4 or 5 years. Always great. This was first summer visit - the gardens are amazing. Lots of interesting flowers - very well done. And the units are very clean, in good repair and best of all, the bed is comfortable :) Wonderful to have a "front row seat" on the St Lawrence. Thanks... More

For an older inn, it has been very well kept. From the friendliness of Caroline when we arrived to the great view, we new we had picked a winner. The room was older, but clean and had all the expected amenities, including free WiFi and a gas fireplace. The gardens were beautiful and the view across the river was wonderful.

We had a wonderful two nights at the Inn where we stayed in one of the quaint brick cottages. The cottage was tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable with windows that made it bright and airy. The complete kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals and we ate outside on the deck using the patio table. A nice... More

Booked in advance as a one night stop in a 4 day journey, and chosen for NOT being one of the chain hotels that are pretty much the same in every town. The huge plus of Dewar's is the location, right on the river with pretty gardens and seating with views across the water to the USA. Other than that... More

Happened to find this Inn while working in the area. I read some of the good reviews before deciding to give it a try. Lucky for me that I did!!! When checking in, I noticed that they had cabins. I booked one for 4 nights and am presently there. The cabins are one bedroom and come equipped with a complete... More

Lovely little room in the main block next to the car park. Well heated with everything you need inc a bath as well as a shower. Comfy bed - what more could you ask? This place has a restriction on noise which was perfect for us as we dont like too much either. Fabulous gardens which lead to decking over... More

Chose Dewar's Inn for a stopover en route from Toronto to Quebec. The No. 2 road / Thousand Island Parkway makes an interesting alternative to the 401 when travelling east from Kingston and Prescott presented itself as a suitable place to stop. The road as far as Brockville runs along the coast and is a worthwhile diversion in its own... More

Recently, we spent a night at this lovely motel on the St. Lawrence en route to Quebec City. It was a basic room but clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well maintained. We would definitely stay there again if in the area.

I was disappointed as I imagined the the room would see the river - or at least have a nice view I was mistaken !!! There was a electricity cut and no water the morning that we stayed ...... Not the owners fault but still not a nice experience when staying there

We made our reservation last minute and the hostess was so helpful. She left a map for us since we got in late and was very friendly. The room has everything you could need - plates, a fridge, tv, table, griddle, and a spectacular view of the river. Actually, it's not a view of the river, the river is literally... More
