Check-in was pretty smooth - a young man was posted at the entrance to the parking lot, with a list of expected guests, to keep Music Festival freeloaders out of the parking lot. He found our name and waved us toward the front desk. The clerk was effective and efficient, dealing with people who had several connecting rooms assigned to... More

Always a great stay, my hometown and a great place to visit. I love this hotel because the waterfront is nice in the summer, festival is just next store for music and everything is walking distance. People treat you great and can get a deal on a room just calling in after a couple stays. Worth a shot for sure... More

This is an older hotel and badly needs renovating. This is the second time I have stayed here. I know there are not a lot of hotels to choose from in Peterborough.

We stayed one night at Holiday Inn Peterborough, using IHG points. I selected it because of being able to use points and was thrilled to learn that it is near the Peterborough marina, as we were on a boat oriented trip. The hotel faces the water, with the waterfront walk passing directly along the front of the hotel. The marina... More

This hotel is located right in the heart of the action. You are next to the main park, across the street from restaurants and a short walk to downtown. The hotel is in good condition with nice rooms and comfy beds. Their restaurants is on the expensive side but servers good food.
