We stayed at the Hovey Manor this past summer. I wanted more space, so I rented their cottage directly from their website. When we got there, it was clear that the cleaning hat been rushed. The kitchen floor was squeaking when we walked on it, their was opened food left behind and you could see the shadow of the dust in the arc the vacuums had done in the corner of the living room. No super big deal, and when I mentioned it, the cleaning crew came back the next day and fixed it. The cottage itself, Dragonwatch, is very nicely decorated and of good proportion. But keep in mind a few things that the description on the site didn't mention. Firstly, the third bedroom is in the basement of the cottage. Since it's built on a steep hill, there is good natural light that comes in, but it's still in the basement. The bathroom off the main bedrooms is tiny. Think cruise ship tiny. The various decks are arranged so that you're going down many staircases before reaching the dinning table for instance. So we ended up dinning indoor instead. Furthermore, the cottage sits 25 feet away from the owner's house. It's not a very private set-up, to say the least. Having said this, he's a charming fellow. And lastly, when we were leaving, my daughter admitted to me the following fact. In her bedroom, the one in the basement, a chair had been positioned to hide mold on the wall. She didn't want to raise a fuss and asked that I don't walk over to the front desk. But I did show it the the senior person on the cleaning crew waiting outside our door the day we left and asked her that someone call me about this. No one ever did. On the positive side of things, the property his very beautiful, most of the staff was very friendly (see my review of the restaurant on site), the check-inn was easy and the lake was clear and cool. But at +/- 1000$ a night, cleanliness is a given. Considering that it's a Relais & Chateaux only adds to this expectation. In our experience, it didn't cut mustard.

Response from Stephen Stafford, Owner at Manoir Hovey
Responded 1 week ago
Thank you for your review. It seems that you enjoyed your vacation chez nous but were piqued about some of the details regarding the "Dragonwatch Cottage". Firstly, Dragonwatch is not part of Relais & Chatieaux or owned by Manoir HOvey. It is the guesthouse on my personal 5 acre lakeside property adjacent to, but invisible from, the hotel. Most of Dragonwatch guests are regulars who enjoy, especially with children, the spacious privacy plus having free access to all the faciilties of Hovey which is a short swim, a brief paddle or a 3 minute walk away. DRagonwatch guests also enjoy a discount on any meals they decide to enjoy at Hovey. Dragonwatch is fully equipped with a specious kitchen, 3 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms (yes, one of them is small), an entance garden. a large lakeside deck PLUS a private beach with free canoe, kayaks and paddleboards, a boathouse with sundeck and a large dock. I renovated this 1898 cottage 4 years ago but wanted to keep the feeling of a traditional North Hatley cottage but with all the mod cons. It is not intended to have the higher luxury evident in the bedrooms at the Manor but is very comfortable, none the less. I am sorry for the patch of stained wall paper near the floor in the downstairs bedroom. Incidentally, it is not a basement. The cottage is split level and there is a basement below it. You mentioned a price of about $C1000+ per day. The peak season rate is $C625. per day for up to 8 people, plus the necessary taxes.. I apologize if it was not clear to you that Dragonwatch is not owned by Manoir Hovey. Keep Well!

Recommended by a friend and wanting to escape for a special family celebration, we ended up so pleasantly surprised with the location, facilities, room quality and especially the amazing food (via room service due to Covid closure) and service. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate privately, safely, and very comfortably!

This is definitely a special occasion destination. Very welcoming, very luxurious. This inn has so much to offer and the surrounding villages and towns are a joy to explore. The food is outstanding and the service is impeccable. We couldn’t have been happier to celebrate our milestone event at Manoir Hovey!

We went for a romantic gateway to relax and that is exactly what we got. The hotel is amazing food was extraordinary, it was very quiet. We would of prefer if the fireplace in our room was place differently, we could berely see it. The was no hot water in the shower, just warm. The lady at front desk could of been more helpful. It would be nice if there was a jaccuzzi or hot tub by the lake for all the guest.
