I love history and if you want something with personality instead of modern & chic then choose the Prince Arthur! Gorgeous location overlooking Thunder Bay's waterfront and an incredible view of the ships and islands if you have a lake view. The storied elegance of this aging rail hotel is still there in the grand staircase, mouldings, window sills and... More

My family and I spent 3 nights at the Prince Arthur in a waterfront room. The room was surprisingly large! Sure, there were a few up-keep things that needed to be tended to, but the place is an historic hotel. It's old! Given the age, it was in pretty good shape. The location was fabulous for all of our needs.... More

We have never written an unfavourable review before. The upside was that the front desk receptionist was lovely and there was a breakfast. We got a room at fairly short notice when most hotels were booked. This is maybe have been a grand old lady in her time but it's in a poor state now. Our room was large but... More

You can tell that this property has seen better days. There are loads of potential. Staff is wonderful, as is the situation. However, the building needs a fecelift. The lobby is not up to standards. The hotel must have been a swank place in its heyday. It would be lovely if it were to revive. You have all my sympathy... More

I enjoyed this quaint hotel very much. Wonderful view, great location near the waterfront. The staff were pleasant. A refreshing break from the chain hotels that are the only option in so many cities. An old-fashioned hotel for those for whom a water slide isn't the most important hotel feature.

This hotel reminded me a great deal of The Victoria in Galway Ireland, an old once elegant hotel that has become run down and worn out in dire need of some TLC (and a little money). Unbelievably, we paid the same rate for this hotel as we did for the much superior Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg. How is this... More

Stayed on a really hot day (over 30C). Our room faced the city and was a single queen for $100 with CAA discount. The hotel is showing its age but is charming and right on the waterfront. Room was spotless but very tiny. Bed was pretty comfy. Room was a corner suite and had a window facing north that had... More

For the price I paid I got fair value mostly due to the great view I had of the lake , harbor, and sleeping giant. Other than that it was just a fair hotel. It is old and needs a major renovation to make this a hotel that I would recommend. Only one elevator that really is ok to use.... More

We choose to stay downtown when in Thunder Bay, as we were on our bike, and wanted to be able to walk to dinner. This hotel is a faded lady. A former CN Railway hotel, but it has fallen on some hard times. The check-in staff and front desk staff were wonderful and helpful in finding a laundromat and local... More

Passing through Thunder Bay on a cross-Canada trip, this property was suggested by a local. We wanted a place near Lake Ontario. Our room faced the water, and the park. Our room was quiet, but hadn't been updated in any way. Towels thin and small, bathroom had awkwardly place access to toilet paper, no counter space for toiletries. Hallways had... More
