“A lovely romantic stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Wanted a room for the two of us we were tired and hungry, been travelling all day. Receptionist was so lovely she upgraded us to a suite with a massive jacuzzi in our room with a closed in log fire, very romantic! We were just about to freshen up before we went to the hotel restaurant and there was a knock on the door...it was the receptionist with a cold bottle of wine and two glasses on the house!
We went for dinner and another surprise was the restaurant it was Greek and another great big open logfire in the middle of the restaurant, again so romantic and the food was great too! Shame we were only there for one night!!

Room Tip: If you want a romantic stay however long or short, ask for the suite with the jacuzzi!!

I stayed ere after coming in to town just after midnight, the front desk guy was awesome, sorted my checkin quickly and efficiently. The room was great, very accommodating, comfy bed, just what a man needs after a long flight in to Toronto and then a drive to Barrie,

There was a number of workers that made my experience pleasant.
Graham for going out of his way to assist me with a last minute celebration.
Jenny and Brittany for providing help on a last minute request for services to my room for a meeting.
Arlene for accomadating my request for a room large enough to conduct a small meeting. Providing me with extra chairs and above all her very pleasanrt demeanour.
Every employee i interacted with was friendly and went out of their way to make my 3 days there very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Close to back entrance which provided me ease of entering and leaving the hotel.

BWB, thanks for looking after my guests during our grand opening launch of Nashville North Barrie. I appreciate your professionalism and courtesy and we'll all be back soon. I spent 3 nights myself and found the property to be peaceful and the staff wonderful and fun to deal with. We have been using your hotel for events for many years including the nationally renowned and award winning CMT Music Festival, Budweiser New Music Fest and many others.

I stay in this hotel at least once a week, and it exceeds my expectations every time! Check in is smooth and efficient, Graham and Brittany do an excellent job at check in, they are professional and efficient, the room is always very clean and any issues I have had were dealt with immediately, any noise issues are dealt with properly ............. many of us have long days ie up at 5:30 am and have put in 12 - 14 hour days so I appreciate them dealing -- generally with the parents who allow their children to go nuts, scream, yell, run the halls and play hockey in the halls until after 10:00 pm/ or those blaring their music after 10 .... professionally and effectively. Check out with Jim in the mornings is fast, efficient, and he is helpful, cheerful and starts the day off right. The Breakfast Buffett is well stocked with hot and cold items that are fresh and hot................ some mayo for those hard boiled eggs would be appreciated.... I rarely see the day staff but they have been very accommodating when I have had to call in -- Arlene. Also that occassional surprise of popcorn or chocolates always hit the spot --- thank you to the marketing person -- (sorry name freeze) it is so appreciated! Keep up the good job guys!

All employees are extremely friendly and accommodating, I stay at this hotel typically once a week. The staff go above and beyond each and every visit to ensure a pleasant stay. Rooms are extremely clean - and very modern.

Room Tip: The hotel has a new addition - but all rooms are renovated.
