“Would stay somewhere else.”
Reviewed February 15, 2010

We chose this hotel originally because of the reviews we had read.

When we arrived there was a birthday party going on in the breakfast area. Parents parking in front of the doors picking up their kids, in the way as we were bringing in our luggage. Apparently they have a birthday package that allows the kids the use of the pool. I guess the hotel guests have to put up with the screaming kids??

Our room was beside the stairwell and teenagers and kids were running up and down the halls and stairwells until 11:00pm. Every where we went in the hotel kids were running around, where were their parents?? The next morning on our way down to breakfast there was trash in the hallways and elevator. Not a clean hotel. Of all the hotels we've stayed in, this one had the smallest continental breakfast of them all.

Very noisy, not clean, not impressed at all.

I am grateful to our guests who take the time to provide feedback in relation to their experiences at our hotel. Whether relating details of an ideal stay or offering constructive suggestions on how we may improve our services and amenities, we welcome them all.

While it is true that our weekends are often full of families having fun and sharing time together we also value our guests who book with us looking for a quieter getaway. We understand that our many guests travel for a variety of reasons; sometimes these reasons may be at odds with each other. We take the proactive step of personally calling each guest who is arriving on a sports/family weekend to provide details of levels of activity that they may expect. Even on our busiest weekends the code of conduct and consideration that we expect our guests to observe are rooted in the notion of common courtesy. We are happy to respond to specific instances of disruptive behaviour that are reported to us.

In response to your observations on our free continental breakfast I would like to list some of the items that our guests may choose from: 6 cold cereals, hot cereal, choice of 2 breads, 3 bagels, assorted baked goods, hard boiled eggs, individually portioned cheese, yogurt, fresh whole fruit, fruit juices and coffee/tea. I like to think of it as a better “continental” breakfast.

On the occasion that you next travel to Peterborough, Ontario please feel free to call me personally. It would be my pleasure to ensure your satisfaction with your stay.

The hotel was nice. Pool, breakfast area, clean and friendly. Cool 'family' room with a separate area with bunk beds and an XBOX360.

But stay away from the stairwells and the room over the breakfast room. The noise from the stairwells is loud. And they start moving furniture around the breakfast room at exactly 5:45. You will hear people walking in the room overhead; sounds like an older home/cottage.

We stayed at this Super 8 over Christmas 2009 with our three sons. We payed $75 per night for a room that had a little room off it with bunkbeds and a Playstation and a blackout curtain across the door. The kids could go down and borrow a different game whenever they wanted. This was great because my husband and I could stay up and watch TV and the kids could be snoozing and weren't kept awake by the sound from the TV. Free breakfast was pretty good, free internet was nice, the pool was small but still lots of fun--they even had pool toys. The hotel is brand new so everything was very clean and the staff were really nice. We will be staying here again for sure. It was just about perfect.

Looking for hotel with indoor pool in Peterborough. This one had the lowest room rate and was a new hotel. Still looks and smells new. Rooms were roomy, flat screens, fridge, microwave. Pool was small but so are my children so that worked out okay. Seemed pretty quiet in the rooms other than being able to hear the person in the room above walking around. So I'd probably get the top floor next time. All in all nice new hotel that was the best bargain in town.

My husband, son and I stayed here recently and we were quite impressed with this hotel. It opened in 2008 so everything still has a new feeling. Front desk staff were very friendly upon check in. The rooms are decent size and nicely equipped with microwave and small fridge. Beds were comfortable and each room has a flat panel tv and modern furnishings. We stayed in a regular room but they also have jacuzzi suites and family suites with a separate area for the kids bunkbeds. Everything in the room was VERY clean. The A/C was a little noisy and the walls were a little thin but this is what I expected for the level of hotel we were staying at. The hotel is dog friendly and we saw plenty of guests with their dogs, but there was no dog odour anywhere!
The free breakfast was standard with choice of cereal, oatmeal, bagels, toast, pasteries and fresh fruit, etc. The eating area was bright and had plenty of room for everyone to find a seat. There is a computer in the lobby with internet and there is an indoor heated pool and whirlpool. Water temperature was VERY nice but the pool is a little on the small side. The hotel is located right on Lansdowne and has several shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The liftlocks are about a 5-10 minute drive away. If I am in Peterborough again, I would certainly stay here and would recommend this hotel.

Found myself in Peterborough by accident and, after 9 hours on the road, decided to spend the night. Had no reservations anywhere, but the Super 8 looked new, so I stopped. AAA rate was only $89 and the hotel was a great find. Room was clean, quiet, comfortable and comfortably appointed with flat screen TV, two queen beds, desk, free wireless internet and free continental breakfast. Happy that I stumbled across this gem and the value was excellent.

Hello,
I have stayed at the Holiday Inn, Best Western and Comfort Inn over the the last three or four years when working in the Peterborough area.
This past fall the Super 8 opened in peterborough. I have now stayed here a couple of times. This new hotel (not motel) is so much nicer than the others in town. New flat panel tv's a very nice lobby, contemporary decor in the rooms make this the" new kid on the block". Ken Kirby is the general manager who really takes care of this property! He really makes sure you are looked after when checking in. Take a quick tour of the property and you will agree that it is so nice compared to the dated Best Western or the Holiday inn. I am in sales and stay on the road three or four months a year in total.
This area has so many run down hotels that are charging a premium. The super 8 is an excellent option in an area where the others are so over priced in comparison to what you get.
Well worth an a quick visit to see for your self.
