“Enlighting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

The nature and the stunning designs of the facility are no doubtfully the most amazing enriching and comforting place to stay. The service at front desk however was very poor. I had to ask about breakfast ( typically this is told to guests upon check in) and then made to feel like I was actually being bothersome. There was no smile no greeting. This is the 2nd time I've stayed here and nothing changed and drove me to write this review

My husband and I were here for one night and very surprised by the stunning architecture and setting. The real treat though was the walking trail down to the waterfront, including placards describing such interesting sights as a birds nest style lighthouse guarding the harbor. The scenery along the walking trail was breath- taking. The bed was very luxurious with a remarkably soft down comforter. This is a top flight hotel in an unusual and unassuming place.

The Manitoulin Hotel was such a lucky find for us on the island. Every place we looked at, as we drove from the ferry to Little Current, was small and not very pleasant looking. The room at this hotel was outstandingly clean, quite comfortable, quiet, and all the amenities we used were good. We did not eat here, but the desk lady suggested a good, local place in town for dinner and she was correct; we had a delicious meal there. You might want to make an advance reservation in the summer season as there are groups who use this place because it is a conference center and there are several festivals and First Nation pow wows.

I just returned from a 3 night stay attending a conference there and I must say that this is a wonderful place. The accommodations were clean, bright and a fantastic view of the Channel.The staff were very courteous and helpful.The meals over the 3 day event were well prepared, tasty and served by a smiling staff. One of the meals was a Native Feast served " Family Style" and was out of this world. They must have a good Chef on the property. My meal in the Restaurant was equally good. The conference was well attended by people from all over the Ontario.
I definitely will be returning there this summer.

Nice hotel , clean quiet room with a nice view. Good service from Hotel staff.
Food at the restaurant was expensive and not very good, I am not a fussy eater, but I know the difference between poor, average , good, very good food and excellent food and presentation. This food was poor with prices for very good food, service not any better than the food.
We may stay there agian; unlikely to eat there, even if choices are limited in Little Current. .

February 15th 2014.
Ourselves and 2 other couples had made reservations a couple of weeks previous to this date and were looking forward to a delicious dinner out at the Manitoulin Hotel & Conference Centre.
One of the couples in our little group had arrived ahead of us and were enjoying a before dinner cocktail. The rest of us thought this was a fabulous idea and after a very long time the waitress made an appearance at our table and took the drink order. Four Caesars! Not too difficult. It took long enough to produce these drinks that we considered ordering seconds as soon as the first ones showed up in order not to suffer a lapse.
Sorry, did I say produce these cocktails? I meant to say pour them out of a bottle and into a glass!
When the drinks did show up the waitress inquired about out dinner selections.
The food order was as follows:
1 Bison burger platter
3 orders of Primerib. Rare, medium rare and medium.
1 order of Tortillini
1 order of New York Strip Loin
Appetizers were also ordered: Tiger Shrimp and Brushetta
While we waited for the food we chatted and had a few laughs. Our second round of bottled Caesars showed up but now we didn't get the lovely lemon/olive garnish that came with the first round.(must have been an introductory special)
Now the night starts to fall apart.
The first one thing to come out of the kitchen is our salads.
When I inquired about the appetizers the sous chef had no clue what I was talking about but tried to tell us the salads were the appetizers.
Next out of the kitchen was the Tortillini and the Prime Rib orders.
The Tortillini was hot and looked very appetizing.
The Primerib was just placed in front of us with no inquiry about who had ordered the rare or medium or medium rare. These cuts of meat were also covered in gravy, which no one had ordered and it was impossible to check for doneness.
While cutting the potato that was with my meal I noticed no steam coming off the potato so I checked and they were cold. Not room temperature. COLD! And the same condition applied to the meat and the vegetable.
At this point we asked the server about getting our meals reheated.NO Problem.
She grabbed our plates,stacked them on top of each other and assured us new portions would be coming.
Another inquiry about the appetizers revealed that they had no shrimp. They must have thought we would forget about ordering these.
Now if I your keeping track, 6 people have ordered food. 4 have been served. No appetizers have made it to the table and only 1 dish was satisfactory.
At this point the server returns from the kitchen and informs us that the grill has been shut off and we can not be served any food at all.
Now I want to talk to Chef Stewart but he is not available, nor is a Hotel Manager.
BUT
We were assured that we would not have to pay for any services received due to all the errors.
We will not be going back except to chat with Chef Stewart. I think he should be aware of what goes on when he is not there.
Our little dinner gang consisted of 5 people whom are in constant contact with the public. It is to bad we cannothave anything good to say about this establishment.

Visited the Manitoulin Hotel & Conference Center for a short 3 day business trip. Can't comment on the pool or warm weather amenities as I stayed in November. The architecture, design and furnishings of the hotel are striking and the front desk staff were very pleasant.

Room was clean and comfortable with fixtures normally found in much more expensive hotels. Lots of room, didn't feel cramped, climate control worked well. Nice view of the water out the window.

Off season, there weren't a lot of places to eat open nearby so I elected to have dinners in the hotel restaurant. It's open in the morning with a breakfast buffet but unlike many hotels it is not complimentary, though has quite a bit more variety and better quality than those.
Dinner quality was decent, but fairly limited menu and was a bit on the expensive side for what was served.

Overall, nice place, would certainly stay again if I have occasion to visit the beautiful area of Manitoulin Island. A bit pricey for cooler weather, but the hotel was nearly full with construction folks and other travelers, and there weren't too many other options nearby.

Room Tip: Front side faces highway, backside has a nice view of the channel and fishing boats behind.
