“Beautiful hotel/location - attentive, polite service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying here last night and we had a phenomenal experience.

The staff were polite, attentive and treated us like we were their main priority. The room as well as the hotel and property were clean and well maintained. The room we stayed in had a gorgeous bathroom with a large 2 person jacuzzi as well as a large shower which we took full advantage of. Both the restaurant patio and the balcony offered a scenic view of the river.

We enjoyed two meals during our stay and both our dinner and breakfast in the restaurant were delicious and cooked to perfection. Try the Baked Brie appetizer if you get the chance!

We would definitely stay here again and suggest it to anyone looking for a hotel in the Peterborough area.

Hubby and I decided to stay here as a belated anniversary and de-stress weekend. We have stayed here before but never in the winter. I was looking forward to the saltwater indoor/outdoor pool & just relaxing.
Our check in was quick & the front desk staff were friendly & in good spirits (as usual)
We found out that the hotel had upgraded us from a basic city view room to a river side suite. How wonderful! We were given room 450 & I may never be able to stay in any other room again - it was perfect!
We received a 2nd surprise- a knock at the door & a beautiful appetizer tray of cheese, meats, & crackers. This was a gift from the hotel, along with a beautiful hand written card wishing us a happy anniversary! This brought tears to my eyes - such a sweet & caring gesture.

The room has a king-sized bed, long dresser with flat screen tv on top, dvd player, table & chair for laptop/work area, recliner chair, 2 bedside night stands.
A sliding glass door leads to a balcony with a magnificent view of the river.

Now to the area that I spent most of my time-the beautiful bathroom. I had already planned to soak in a bath on this getaway (just not something that I do at home). When I stepped into this spacious room, I was blown away!
Beautiful marble counter tops, lots of white fluffy towels, beautiful glass enclosed shower, complete with an overhead rain shower head, & an adjustable height or hand held shower head. And the tub,not just any tub,this was a beautiful jacuzzi tub! It was heaven to be able to soak my troubles away.

We spent Friday evening at Bernie's Tap & Grill just off the main lobby, within the dining area. Had a lovely evening with Cory, our bartender and a duo band called the Water's Edge. We had some food there & it was fantastic. (the baked brie was amazing!!! Thank you Cory)

We have always loved this hotel and have stayed there in the summer and the fall when there are events on the outdoor patio & grill. I can now highly recommend a winter stay there too!

Thank you to all of the Holiday Inn staff and Management - you made our weekend so much better!!

Room Tip: The hotel was full of hockey teams and lots of kids running around - we were not disturbed by noise...

Was perfect break between a week of ice fishing, pool/hot tub/ sauna were perfect. didnt have time for the gym. Street side was noisy when heater turned off, awsome water pressure. Wifi was fast. Only real complaint was, we had a late check out of 1400, our access card wasnt opening doors at 1300, pain in the @ss when trying to load the truck and cant get back in your room or the side door.

We will be back, need a couple pet friendly rooms

No major complaints here. However, my sleep was disturbed by various noises throughout the night. I heard vacuuming and other noises coming from the hallway. Hotel is on the expensive side. A hotel at half the cost (Motel 6) will be used instead next time we are in town. Bathroom is outdated but the bed was comfortable with a thoughtful choice of soft or firm pillows.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel, although I am sorry that you experienced a less than pleasant sleep during your stay with us. I will certainly follow up to find out why there would be vaccuming in the hallway so late at night.

We will be undergoing a property inprovement plan in 2014 which will include renovation to all of the bathrooms in the hotel to bring them up to up to date and modern.

We hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon!

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn on George Street in Peterborough, ON, and was very impressed. Overlooking the Marina side of the River, very pretty view. Beds were excellent and the mattresses appeared to be brand new or nearly new. Choice of pillow type, double sink bathroom,in-room small refrigerator, nice and quiet. Best of all, the salt-water pool, both indoor and outdoor part was still open at Christmas time, and my niece had a great time swimming from inside to outside while there was snow all around. She thought it was such a treat that her parents will be taking her back there for birthday parties - another service that this hotel offers at a reasonable rate. We will be back next time we are in Peterborough. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Room 451 offers a view of both the river and the marina - very pretty, and very quiet.

I have stayed at this hotel several times on business. It is conveniently located near the downtown area making it possible to walk to walk to restaurants and pubs. The beds are comfortable and staff are friendly. Rooms are utilitarian. I really love the dining room for breakfast overlooking the river. Rooms are overpriced compared to other hotels in Peterborough.

Room Tip: Ask for riverview rooms. The rooms at the front can have a lot of street noise.
