We once lived in Peterborough and are familiar with the Holiday Inn. That said, we have not been there in more than an decade. We were pleasantly surprised at the renovated dining area and bar but more importantly, the (mostly) young staff were very pleasant and professional. Everyone, front desk staff, bar and dining staff and housekeeping, spoke to us, if only to say hello. They were welcoming and helpful. Our south facing room, one of only two per floor I think was spacious, clean and well appointed. I don't know when those rooms were constructed or renovated but it certainly seems new still rather than looking than the opposite as so many hotel rooms do.

Room tip: chose an east facing room for the best view, of the river, although the few south facing rooms are nice too.

Parking is free. Special event food was good for lunch & dinner. We had the buffet breakfast - what should be hot, was hot and the milk products were sitting on ice cubes - all good - like the tea selection too. We faced the road but didn't hear the traffic.

Room tip: Looking over the Trent Severn Waterway would be the best view (except in winter).

Overall a good hotel experience! Stayed here for a night. Breakfast in bed is always a nice experience. Major con is you HAVE to pay $5 to park your car here at the hotel (another money grab) but overall friendly staff and nice new beds in the rooms!

Nice hotel. The river view rooms are great and have a much better view than the city facing rooms. Very nice restaurant, right beside the river! Also has an outdoor patio which is very nice in the summer!

Room tip: Riverview rooms are recommended.

While staying at the Holiday Inn, a careless driver drove into my car parked directly in front of the hotel and ran away. Although the holiday inn charges $5 dollars a night for parking, they are no surveillance cameras at all. What is the fee going towards if this is a completely unmonitored lot? While staff were sympathetic, there was no real attempt to make amends. The manager on duty kindly waived approximately $20 off my two night stay and I am left footing $1000 repair bill! Thanks Holiday Inn!

In addition to this, the rooms are quite noisy. The fan system is old and far too loud to be kept running while you sleep, or even watch TV. The walls are also paper thin, so if you do have your fan off you will be able to clearly hear every word your neighbour has to say.

Would strongly recommend staying elsewhere in Peterborough.
