“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

After reading the online review about the new owner and the "wonderful" chef who used to cook for the Governor General in Ottawa, we decided to go there for dinner.
The service was amateur, poorly trained college girls. The food was mediocre at best, like a roadside diner not a high end restaurant. Tiny portions of salad and Kraft dressings nothing gourmet. They could not serve a glass of tomato juice "because it had not been delivered for the season yet" even though it was on the "printed daily" menu. Servers kept bumping our chairs as they squeezed through to other tables, and after waiting for 20 minutes for dessert we had already ordered, I had to go to the serving station to ask for it. Not grand cuisine, just a country diner.

We stayed here for 5 nights in early October 2009 with an Exploritas (formerly known as Elderhostel) group and loved it! The hotel is located on the water's edge at the Jones Falls lock of the Rideau Canal and the view is wonderful. The meals were delicious and beautifully presented. There are numerous options for lodging. Our room was in the main hotel itself and was very spacious with rooms with two double beds and a fold out couch, fridge, microwave, etc. The drawback was stairs and no elevator as far as I know. Other options include buildings where you have no stairs and can park right in front of your room and the room overlooks the water and the pool. There are other options also but I didn't see those rooms. There is a lovely main room in the lodge as well as an enclosed porch. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Hotel Kenney.
