Perhaps people in Canada just go to bed very early, I don't know, but you would think a hotel that caters almost exclusively for holiday makers would have come across people who liked to have a drink after a day's sightseeing.
I was part of a group of fifteen, all staying a minimum of five nights in this hotel - the hotel itself was fine, but their attitude to us when we requested a drink at 10.30pm (hardly the middle of the night) was not exactly welcoming - in fact one night it was suggested we go to another establishment on the island. They were happy enough to take a large amount of money from us for our accommodation and meal costs, but it was too much trouble to serve us one drink at half ten?
Now in case you think we were a group of lager louts, we were almost all women, with an average age of about 40 - we were unlikely to start wrecking the place or puking in the corridors. We wanted one or maybe two quiet drinks before bed and it was quite irritating to be made feel so unwelcome.
The rooms in the hotel were lovely. In general the staff were most accommodating, but to be made feel like some sort of rowdy alco for wanting a glass of wine at night was most unpleasant.
