Excellent place for casual workshops with break out rooms that are comfortable and cosy off season. We loved the grey November sky, billowing clouds and waterfront views from lakeshore cottages. The Boathouse was amazing accommodation and gathering space below. We witnessed a gathering of more than 1000 loons which was spectacular.

It is my first time to stay here overnight. The room is clean and nice. It is also quiet and peaceful in the evening. I went to the gym and swimming pool. Also, it is good to know that they offer day spa package and the dining room is also open to the public just need to make a reservation in advance. I will come again for sure in the wintertime.

We were a group of 18 for our reunion. We had the Mayfair Lodge during our stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Though the windows could have used a cleaning. The furniture was dated - it was like being at someone’s rustic summer cottage. There is a large living room / lounge where we were able to gather in the evenings without disturbing other guests. Plenty of glasses and ice were provided and there was a fridge on the upper and lower level. We were about a 10 minute walk from the main inn, though a shuttle service was provided. We had our meals in the dining room and we all agreed that the food was excellent. Our wait staff was a pleasant group and made us feel at home. One morning we participated in a group activity facilitated by The Briars staff. It was a combination of scavenger hunt, trivia questions, observational skills, art and engineering (building a tower). Every one had fun and it was an enjoyable way to spend time together.

My husband and I stayed for 3 days in September to celebrate his birthday. When I made the reservation we were to stay 2 nights in one room, then move next door for the final night. Ridiculous but we wanted to golf at the Briars golf club so we agreed. Fortunately the front desk staff were able to change the room allocation whereas when I phoned they were totally inflexible. The room was clean but there was a full dirty ash tray on the balcony. The bed was just ok, the bathroom very small and the room was in need of a good paint-job. We opted for the food plan. The food was delicious, however service was poor. On the first evening the glass of wine my husband ordered didn't arrive until our plates were removed. Inconsistent restaurant service was evident throughout our stay. I spoke with the dining room manager who assured me it was an off night. Well, we had 2 more off nights! 5-star food, with 1 star service. We enjoyed the golf course and the only way to golf at the Briars course is to stay at the Briars, so I suppose we will return, but we will find somewhere else to eat

Spent a couple of nights at The Briars Resort with my husband. Overall, it was a wonderful stay! It's very picturesque on Lake Simcoe, and the grounds are lovely. It is a very old hotel, so I was not expecting everything to be shiny and modern, however the looks tired. Although the rooms are clean with very comfy beds, they could use use refurbishment. The windows/sliding door are old, carpets and general decor need updating. We had the breakfast and dinner plan. The food was wonderful! I seriously ate way too much! All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, however the dining staff could use a little more training. They kept forgetting to bring us items that we ordered. Didn't take advantage of the spa, but we did use the golf course. Challenging but lots of fun! All in all a good stay!
