Last year, at near exact same time, we stayed for one night. This past weekend, we stayed for two and asked for the same room. It, we understand, had just been upgraded last year and this year looked every bit as good. Obviously, great housekeeping. The rest of this hotel looked better too. Not that it was shabby, but a...

In our road trip from Ontario to Alberta, Kenora was our third stop and even though it is a small town it is not an excuse to have things dirty and updated. It is a waterfront hotel with nice views but if you turn around to look at the room you would not feel at the same place. Staff was... More

I've stayed here several times with work. They are currently updating the hotel. If you get a lakeside room the view is beautiful. The parking is very tight. Staff were very accommodating. I believe this is the best hotel in Kenora. It's within walking distance of the harbour front, and some tourist shops.

We were recently at a Wedding in this hotel and the food choices were excellent (lemon chicken or pickerel) and the service in the banquet was also really good. Banquet manager Edward was very helpful and responsive to all the needs of the bridal couple as they planned their event. We were also pleased with our rooms although there were... More

We stopped in Kenora on our way home from a road trip to the west. I wish we had planned on more than one night, we arrived in the dark and left the next day in low cloud and rain. Not ideal conditions to enjoy the beautiful scenery from our lake front room.I think the architecture of this hotel is... More

The architecture is pretty dated from the outside, but on the inside this hotel is lovely, offering breathtaking views of Lake-of-the-Woods from most of the rooms. The hotel restaurant on one of the upper floors is gorgeous (although the one meal I had there wasn't spectacular to say the least, the setting certainly was!) I would definitely stay there again,...
