“Wonderful hosts for Christmas Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Traveled to Barrie for Christmas Party and was so pleasantly surprise at this wonderful facility.
From the front desk staff Lori to the wonderful and welcoming Jenny in the bar/dining room. Accomadations were more than I expected, rooms very clean and well thought out. The service was so quick and they treat you like you are family. Room service was hot and amazing. Thanks for the great stay!!!!

Room Tip: We were in the tower and it was very quiet and a wonderful corner room.

While not a huge 5 star hotel like in Toronto, very nice and as good as it gets in Barrie for rooms and restaurant. Not right on busy street, which is good. But south end or north end shopping not too far, and bus service can be used if necessary.

Restaurants within walking distance ( a couple of burger places, fish and chips, pizza, chinese, etc). Lots of other restaurants within a short drive, of course restaurant has restaurant as well.

Two weeks ago, I left a book in my room which had sentimental value. Upon return, I gave the date of my last visit and the Housekeeping staff delivered my book, wrapped in plastic, to my room. And all of this directed by the young gal on the front desk who, I learned later, was on her first night alone on the desk. She was most efficient, cheery and helpful. But the efficient housekeeping group affirm to me that this is a place I can feel well looked after.

Room Tip: Stay in the Executive Tower. The cost is a bit more, but the rooms are spacious, reasonable couch...

I attended the CEO conference on Nov 7-9 and want to express how much I enjoyed the hotel and staff. The food was excellent. The beds were delightfully comfortable and your staff were so accommodating. You run an excellent property. j. Crawford

Was in Barrie for meetings stayed again at this Hotel. It was a busy weekend with Hockey families. Even though staff were busy with all the children, they always had those smiles. Front Desk check in fast, a vast improvement from my last stay. Rooms as always clean and smelling fresh. This Hotel is my "Home" whilst visiting Barrie.

Room Tip: If Hockey teams in Hotel ask to stasy in thne Tower
