Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and your dining experience! Others should know that we have much larger rooms and suites available throughout the hotel and that many are at ground level. Assistance is always available for luggage - sorry we missed you.

I first want to Thank Josee and Debbie (Manager I believe) for accomadating us at the very last minute during the busy busy summer season.

Our daughter and son-in-law chose The Gananoque Inn and Spa for their wedding venue. It was outstanding. The service was excellent! From the time we entered the lobby and talked to Debbie on check in (she is super), our room was perfect and the food was delicious. The wedding on the water was well organized by Ami and the reception...

Dined at the restaurant on a Saturday. We opted for their large patio since the weather was really nice. The waterfront view is great and the atmosphere both inviting and relaxing. The food was good, but not excellent. If you visit Gananoque, why not book some time at this historic Inn and use its as your home base to walk...

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us! Other travelers might like to know that we have two waterfront restaurants. Muskie Jake's Tap and Grill has casual fare but Watermark Restaurant provides fine dining.

The Inn and Spa has been beautifully redone. It retains the charm and history of its roots and recalls a time when this was the playground for the titans of business and rich and famous. Yet the Inn has the amenities of a modern hotel. The fact they serve a hot breakfast (try the Eggs Benedict) is a wonderful touch....

Excellent location, close to all. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast is pretty good but staff very inexperienced in even the basics of waiting tables (eg, guests need cutlery, cream for coffee and spoons). Cannot have windows open in rooms due to bugs so you need to use the air conditioner.

I was really impressed with this hotel. Our room, The Prime Minister's Suite, was large, clean and with a great view, the bathroom had a large jacuzzi and shower. The food at both restaurants was good and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We were on a family vacation but this would be a great romantic getaway.

Thank you for your review and your positive comments! We are glad that you had the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sunrise and sunset. As part of our green policy we decided some years ago to replace only non-functioning electronic equipment. In keeping with the age of the inn our furniture choices through out have been traditional in nature.
