We were pleasantly surprised. After reading a few reviews, my hopes had been dashed. But, the dinner as well presented and tasty. I especially liked the unique presentation of the caesar salad side. The service was very good as well.

I am shocked to see even a handful of poor reviews. I had dinner here last week--the food, service, and setting were excellent. I had the Mayan Pork--very creative and delicious. A great break from camp food if you are staying at the nearby Wellesley Island State Park.

After driving through quintessential Thousand Island Park and all the gorgeously maintained period housing of this community, we parked at the Hotel to go in and get some ice cream. The architecture of the building is amazing. The management has done relatively well to maintain the building's integrity, although the furniture on the wraparound porch is not original, nor arranged... More

Since this is the only place to stay in the area, they have a captured audience. Needs lots of improvement. There was a fire across the street and you could smell the smoke everywhere. The rooms are adequate for a motel 6. Not worth what they charge. The beds should of been change a couple of years ago. Service for... More

Hello Greg, My name is Stephanie and my husband, Hugo and I are the manager and chef of the Wellesley Hotel. We were sad to see you did not enjoy your stay with us. The fire across the street was not something we were able to control as you might imagine. We know that because of the fire, which devastated... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a warm afternoon. The scene from the verandah is picture perfect adjacent a nice park, surrounded nby beautiful 'fairy tale' cottages with views across the water. The wait staff were informative and attentive. The menu had a good selection of appetising dishes. My grilled salmon was cooked to perfection. All in all... More

Cutting to the chase, the most unappealing aspect of this restaurant is, by far, the food. We hand selected this restaurant to honor and thank our long time river resident hosts. We were completely embarrassed. The food was horrendous. Two guests ordered the crab cakes and they were nothing but hush puppies. The salmon was completely unremarkable. The dinner salad... More

I stayed at the Wellesley Hotel for one night. The room was super clean. The bathroom was small but also clean. I felt like I was in in the late eighteen hundreds, which was awesome. I believe that I couldn't have had a better experience in the other hotels of the region. The location was also fantastic, since you are... More

We met a friend of ours for dinner. Great dinner, relaxing, awesome view while having dinner on the porch. Waiter was informative and accommodating. It was pricey but very much in-line with any 5star restaurant. We will go back again next year.
