“Sunday to Tuesday”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We had nice room on the 5th floor. I accompanied my spouse on his business tripp. Was disapointed that the buffet breakfast was not included with our platinum status but was happy that it lasted past 9am on Monday even though the guide said 6am-9am. It was very good & the chef offered to make us whatever kind of eggs we wanted.
Staff at check-in/check-out were always greeting us coming & going.
Our maid on the 5th floor, Trudy, made a point of talking to us every time she saw us, asking us questions like when we would like the room done up, if everything was ok.

I found the cotton sheets were soft but were getting very thin & they could use new pool towels.

From the moment we arrived I knew it was going to be a great stay. The front desk had Amanda and a trainee working at it. He was very polite attentive and actually read the notes that were attached to my reservation. The room was as usual spotless and comfortable. We headed to the hot tub and pool and found everything to be working properly and a hot tub that was actually hot! Nice to relax after a 5 hour drive. We had a great sleep (even slept in RARE!).
Breakfast was great hot and filling. The rest staff including Stephanie, Jenny and of course Chef Paul made our Sunday birthday brunch perfect with so much choice taste and excellent service. Even a piece of birthday cake with sparklers for the birthday girl.
I special thanks to Amanda who has gone out of her way to see that my wife, myself and my company have been looked after and taken well care of. thank you all for a great getaway weekend!

Room Tip: I prefer tha tower but if you have kids the lower level with walk outs to the outdoor pool would be...

I just spent 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn Barrie and I recommend it highly for several reasons. One the service could not be beat. Check in was quick and room was immaculate the entire 2 weeks I was there. The staff was friendly and courteous. The best part of the 2 weeks was the food from Tattingers and the room service. Their soups were made on site and every day featured a different soup as well as their butternut squash and french onion. The panko crusted lobster ravioli and soup of the day were perfect for my evening room service. Thank you everyone for making my 2 week stay so pleasant.

Family had reunion in Barrie. We chose Holiday Inn Barrie due to excellent visits before. Check in was fast and efficient. Rooms were clean and had a refreshing smell. Weather was to our advantage, spent much time in outdoor pool. Had lunch on Patio, kids called it a Picnic. It was so refreshing to be able to sit outside, enjoy our lunch and drinks, at the same time watch over the outdoor pool. Great Prime Rib Buffet Saturday evening,

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Barrie for a wedding. Room was great and very clean. I just had to write this review for the fantastic meal we had at the hotel. We decided to go downstairs and have dinner. What a great decision! The food was fantastic! You have to try the chicken parm. Best I ever had. To top it off Chef Paul personally served our dinner. We had great service there with Jenny being our waitress. On Sunday we had a great breakfast buffet with Chef Paul personally coming to our table and making sure everything was to our liking. Again, buffet was excellent. Thanks Chef Paul and thanks to Jenny too. I wish Chef Paul was closer to our area so we could enjoy that dinner more often. We are planning another trip to Barrie and we will absolutely definitely be enjoying another meal with Chef Paul. Beth C

My wife and I attended a wedding in Barrie and the wedding party booked the HI for guests. We were so amazed by the treatment. Arrived Friday night and went to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner. Chef Paul was amazing. He personally attended to our dinner. We ordered the ribs and they were done to perfection. Chef Paul checked regularly to ensure we were satisfied. At breakfast on Sunday, again Chef Paul saw to it that our breakfast as good as Friday's dinner. The breakfast buffet was fresh and delicious. When we finally finished, Chef Paul gave us a personal thank you for attending. Our waitress Jenny was equally gracious and fun. We had a terrific stay and Jenny and Paul played a very large part in making our stay so enjoyable. The room was terrific. Large and comfortable. Will stay here again when we are in the area.

Spacious, clean and modern rooms. Heated bathroom floors. Short distance from the highway. High speed wireless internet included in the price of the room. Mini fridge. Balcony. Access to an outdoor pool and full service restaurant. Reasonably price room service. Flat screen TV with a good selection of channels. Fully stocked with coffee and tea. Very quick and pleasant check in on a Saturday summer evening. Smoking rooms available if preferred.

Bit confused what the person a few posts below me saw to describe this as a $69 hotel - for $110+tax on Canada day weekend, you don't get much better value than this. By no means is it in the sub $100 category and I've stayed in worse places for much more expensive in Canada and around the world.

Overall nothing to complain about except it's a bit of a walk from the lobby to the room I'm in (area 3).
