Viscount Gort Hotel Banquet and Conference Centre
Ranked #27 of 63 Hotels in Winnipeg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Above average customer service from all staff, with clean rooms at an affordable price. Only beef was the food in the restaurant substandard . Lots of good places to eat in easy walking distance, and a mall close by with good shopping options.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up and away from highway traffic

Very well organized and very professional. Great communication, GREAT FOOD! Wonderful banquet management with snap of the fingers type service.

High five and a shout out to Richard!

Ask for Richard he will make your dream wedding reception happen!

A good place for a function. At times service seemed a little small town compared to being in a city. Communication breakdowns at the front desk around airport shuttle. Also no umbrellas at front desk for rainy days nor any shuttles to the mall

We hosted a dinner in the "Viscount Room" on the second floor. The room was very pretty, REALLY nice chair covers (Brides - if you want to avoid ugly chair syndrome, and don't want to pay through the nose for Chiavari chairs,you'll love these). Dinner was fabulous, the food was excellent and there was a nice wide range of items to choose from on their banquet menu (including a la carte additions to their bundled meals). Prices were very reasonable.

The service staff were wonderful, warm and polite without the "white glove" stuffiness, and actually seemed to care about our experience (unusual for banquet staff). When's the last time a banquet server stopped by to ask you how your meal was? Or ask if you needed anything? Or if the lighting was ok, or the music too loud? They were WONDERFUL.

The renovations are very nice. All around a great experience, and highly recommended for your event.

The hotel was nice. The rooms were well appointed and clean. The pillows however were terrible. They are very fluffy but have absolutely no support. We were surprised that even though we hung up our towels so we could reuse them, we were given clean towels each day....so much for their claim of helping the environment. The hotel is just across the road from a large shopping mall and close to several restaurants. We would stay there again.

Thank you for your review about your resent stay.
I have spoken with our Housekeeping Manager regarding the Pillows in your room, and we will be looking into a firmer pillow and have this available for our Guests who prefer a firmer pillow.
As well as spoke to our Housekeepers to review the re-use towel program in the Hotel to ensure they are all aware of this in each room.
We really appreciate your comments as it helps us monitor the services we provide in the Hotel to all of our Guests and ways to improve and make there stay comfortable.
