Had a pleasant time in this hotel this weekend. Right down by the water it would be a great time in the summer as well. This site appears to be well run beds were clean. Did not use the restaurant or night club so have no comment. Only rated site a 3 because it is in need of a renovation...

This Hotel really need major renovations. Despite the perfect and nice location of this hotel it is not worth it to raven pay 10 $ for the room. No accessible electric plugs. Shower might not function as I had during my stay. The hotel is really outdated and old. However depending on the room you might have comfortable matters. Free...

Stayed here with a hockey team. The service was actually pretty good. They accommodated the team, breakfast was free for the kids. They are right on the water, so nice place to walk and some grassy areas for the kids to play and run around. The pool is nice, half in half out. Rooms needs some work. The beds are...

You can see from my previous reviews I am fair. * we have had bad experiences before in Peterborough when you need a hotel and there is a hockey tournament, so we stayed at the Holiday Inn hoping it would be a better option than the budget hotels on Lansdown. Oh we were wrong. Despite assurances. Groups sitting in the...

Sitting in my room at this property with my granddaughter, who says the room smells stinky - and she is right. Smells like very old stale cigarettes but supposed to be non-smoking. The corridors are dirty, worn carpet on the stairs, patched carpet. It would take millions to bring this property back to an acceptable standard for rates charged. So...

I'll start with the good: Staff are wonderful, proximity to downtown is perfect, and the beds are pretty comfy. Beyond that this hotel is an overpriced dump. I paid $150 per night for a $99 room (if that). Tub faucet leaked continually, the toilet seat was broken, as was the kleenex dispenser...our "city view room" was very noisy from traffic,...

Recently stayed at this Hotel for one night. We have stayed at this hotel before but many years ago. The Hotel has not changed much in those passing years.

We really enjoy a comfortable room, good food and a hot sauna etc. If you do then this is a must for you. Looking forward to a return visit soon. Close to downtown and hiking or biking trails at the back of the hostel. Walk everywhere.
