Very nice hotel. Probably the best hotel in Owen Sound. It is very close to down town and the bay. The rooms are large and pleasant. The restaurant has plenty of gluten free and vegan selections for those with dietary restrictions..

This hotel is very well kept up. All of the rooms are clean and fresh. Free Breakfasts on premise each day. If you can use the coupon for the buffet, they will take $5 off your regular meal. There is NO POOL here. The water is close by and a trail will take you downtown. Staff was helpful, but they... More

We stayed at this hotel for a vacation and an Antique Car Tour. The hotel made us feel very welcome. I really enjoyed the location, right beside the water. There is a lovely, and not too long, walk beside the water very easily accessed from the hotel.

Great hotel, good continental breakfast, good location. Was quiet and clean. The pool is really just a whirl pool so not that great to actually swim in. Right on the bay so the view is nice. It is a bit out of the way so it is quite quiet.

Clean rooms. Friendly staff and accommodating to individual needs. Fitness room and hot tub were great. Beautiful location on Lake Huron. Make sure to have a meal at the onsite restaurant. We chose to eat at the hotel instead of going elsewhere as the food was delicious, reasonable prices and fantastic service. Very happy with our stay. Well Done!!

Great Hotel with a good restaurant and bar. I don't think I can say enough good things about this hotel. We stayed for 6 days. We were part of a pre-1916 car touring group. This was our base of operations. The staff was friendly, accommodating and eager to please. The restaurant had good food at reasonable prices. The bar and... More

Hotel is situated on a very scenic bay of Georgian Bay. Lots of rooms and parking. Staff very friendly. Good jumping off point for Tobermory and Bruce trail excursions. Consider eating offsite. We did not have a great experience but may have been an abheration..

We stayed here one night. It is one of the best BWS we have stayed in. Our room was large, modern, comfortable, spotlessly clean and had a great view of the lake. Everything was spot on- friendly, helpful reception staff, great service in the restaurant at breakfast, and a great room. There is both indoor and outdoor seating in the... More
