I'm very glad that I chose Country Lodge. It was a very nice, clean and comfortable hotel. The distance from downtown was a bit far, but it was easy to get a taxi. However, being that it wasn't downtown, it was quiet and I slept well each night. I was extremely happy with the staff. They were always willing the help with any questions.
The continental breakfast was very nice. There was a good selection (eggs, meats, cereal, yogurt, breads, fruit, juices). They don't have a restaurant, but their sister hotel, The Fairview (which is just down the road) has some great places to eat.
My only complaint was the high cost of the internet service and phone calls. Phone calls were between .25 and .75 per minute (US). The internet was about .25 per minute. At the end of my time, I realized that there is an internet cafe just around the corner (think is was called ACK on Bishops Rd). It was only 1/20th of the cost.
I would definitely stay there again.
