“Great Easter Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Had a really great time with my extended family here!! They put on a wonderful, delicious and filling brunch for Easter. Special thanks goes out to the serving staff-Jenny, Cindy and Crystal who helped make it fun and memorable for both the adults and especially the kids. Thanks again..Already thinking about next year...

Excellent staff, very personable and friendly. Clean upgraded facility, nice pool and hot tub. Tattinger's restaurant has a great kitchen staff headed by head chef Paul. Their breakfast buffet had excellent variety and everything was hot and delicious. Serving staff was friendly and efficient, taking the extra steps to ensure a good experience. Obviously well managed - would stay here again in a heart-beat.

We love the Holiday Inn and decided that Barrie would be the best place to stop. We had never stayed in Barrie before but would not hesitate to do so again! The staff was wonderful and the room couldn`t be beat! We loved the Executive Tower and there was finally a tub you could have a bath in! Kudos for that alone!! Great sleep and enough plugs to have everything recharged for the morning.

Room Tip: If you can, stay in the Executive Tower. I highly recommend joining the IHG points as you get compl...

Back in Barrie visiting family. Grandkids love eating in Tattinger's. The staff being one of the biggest reasons we come back although varieties on buffet offer a great selection. Our Grandkids love the breakfast buffet. Our server was Crystal, and the grandkids were excited and accidentally had spillage with milk. Table was not balanced correctly. Crystal immediately set about cleaning the table and the grandkids. Adrienne assisted the children with their buffet, this service is an added bonus. Thoroughly enjoyed Saturday evening Prime Rib, met up with our server Jenny. Summer we all be back for a weekend of fun. Thanks to all.

Well located and easy to find right off the main road. Rooms comfortable and clean. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Many nearby local restaurants with plenty of variety of dining within walking distance if you want to have an alcoholic drink or two. Stayed here several times over the last few years on business. Will return next time in the area.

Room Tip: Away from the elevators if possible.

This hotel is very handy being located just off Hwy 400. Easy in easy out. The front desk personnel were very friendly and efficient we were in our room in no time. The room was very large especially for two of us which made it very pleasant The king size bed was very comfortable. We used the restaurant on several occasions and were very pleased with the service, food and cost.The breakfast was excellent and very reasonable for a buffet no need to leave the building.The free morning paper was a nice touch and the bill appearing in our room the night before we left made check out a breeze.Would I recommend this hotel, what do you think?. You will be worry free checking in here.

We stayed here one night for a family function nearby. Overall, the hotel met all of our expectations. Rooms had free wifi and were clean and a good size for 4 people. The hotel had a pool and hot tub, which we used. The hot-tub was warm, but have been in some that were a lot hotter. There is also a dry sauna, which was really warm.

Our date included breakfast, which had something for everyone. The buffet had both hot and cold items and a selection of drinks.

Overall, I would recommend to anyone travelling to Barrie.
