Thank you for your favourable review! We are so pleased you had an enjoyable stay at Simcoe Comfort Inn. Norfolk County is a great place to visit with much to do in all seasons! It is fantastic that you were able to take advantage of our pretty and tranquil park-like back yard. We have even seen deer and wild turkeys back there, depending on the season! And yet, we are in town and handy to all of Simcoe's amenities!

Please come again soon. Norfolk County Fair and Horseshow will begin October 2nd and run through Thanksgiving. Then after that it will be Pumpkinfest in Waterford! There is always something going on in the area.

Yours in Hospitality

The rooms ard dated and not that clean. Beds are comfortable but the pillows are small. TV is small and not flat screen. The bathroom floor was crawling with red ants. No kleenex or extra roll of toliet paper when we arrived. Had to ask house cleaning for some. It was a quiet stay. Forget about the free continential breakfast, nothing much or healthy. No whole grain bread, orange juice okay. Front staff not very personable and lacking in customer service.
Glad to check out!

We are very sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with your stay here. Whenever this happens, provided the guest makes us aware they have issues at the beginning of their stay, we take every measure to remedy the situation.

I understand what you are saying about our pillows. They become compressed due to the way the pillow cases are tucked in at the end. I discovered this for myself when I checked into a Choice Hotel. I found that by freeing up the tucked in end of the pillowcase, I could fluff the pillows back to the original shape. Honestly, those pillows are heaven to sleep on when they are fluffed!

With the rapid advancement in the technology of TV's, even the big screen TV's here look ancient! It would be great if all of our rooms had the flat screen TV's. Several rooms do have them and we are working toward having them in all the rooms.

In trying to be environmentally responsible to the earth as well as our customers, we do not like to put pesticides where guests may come into contact with them. We also try to use more natural solutions, such as borax and confectioners sugar, when possible. These may not have the immediate effect that sprays and drops have. This time of year, weather dictates the activity of ants. I trust that our staff took care of irradicating them from the bathroom in a timely manner.

We appreciate your input concerning the Continental Breakfast. We will put in a suggestion to head office about that. We do have to be careful about allergies. We try to offer a variety of bread products. Aside from white bread, we have whole wheat bread, whole wheat bagels and even whole wheat English Muffins. For cereals, besides Raisin Bran and Special K, we offer oatmeal. There are several varieties of fresh fruit, plus hard boiled eggs, and 2% milk, orange juice, and locally produced natural apple cider. Yes, aside from the Belgium Waffles with natrual real maple syrup (also local), we do offer one sweet pastry as required by Choice Hotels, but the bulk of our patstry tray consists of muffins; bran, carrot, morning glory, and blueberry. And we have a wide assortment of gourmet teas and coffees.

If you do happen this way again, I hope you will choose our hotel and give us another try. You may even make special requests concerning your room.

Again, thanks for your input. It is greatly appreciated.

Upon check in I was no very happy. The hotel needs refurbishing, the front desk folks were not very friendly, and the room was dark and had a nasty smell. After opening the curtains and blasting the A/C it seemed to improve. However, the bed was quite comfortable, the room was clean, and the "free: breakfast was nice. All in all, not a hotel you would wish to hang out at, but good value for simply a place to sleep.

Room Tip: Our room was right near the stairs, ask for a different room.

It is unfortunate that your guest experience here was less than perfect, and for that we apologize. It seems that most of your disappointment in the room was with the environment within the room and not the room itself. Recently we have begun the process of becoming a smoke free hotel. In converting the rooms, it does take extensive deep cleaning to remove all trace of tobacco by product from wallpaper, carpets, furniture, and other fixed elements of the room, and this has been done. It also takes fresh air and time to dissipate. Had we a vacant room to do so, we would have moved you to one that was more agreeable with your senses.

We are environmentally responsible in that we use the energy saving compact fluorescent bulbs. They seem to be dimmer that the old incandescent bulbs and take a few minutes to warm up to their potential brightness. Hopefully that technology will improve!

Our front desk staff is usually very friendly and accommodating. We apologize if you encountered one of us at the front desk who was having a tough day, and this can happen from time to time, but is rare. Though it can be tough to do when we are extremely busy, we do try to maintain our cheery dispositions.

As for the lobby, we have received some good news on that front! We have been given the green light to do a refresh and update! We are very excited for the reveal. The decor will be uplifting and current, as opposed to this dated and dark theme now. I hope you will visit us again and see the improvements sometime in the later summer/early fall. Check out norfolktourism.ca for information about all the neat things happening in our area!

Staff was great especially in the breakfast room. Room was clean though the first room given to us stunk likes smoke. Breakfast room was small but filled with plenty of the basics. Bonus, they had a gas BBQ in the back for its guest wish I new that.

Their name says it. The Comfort Inn Simcoe has everything I need and more while doing business in the Simcoe area. The staff go out of their way to make me feel welcome daily, not just when checking in. The rooms are very clean and come with microwave and bar fridge. The breakfast area is fully equipped and well attended to. I will definitely be back.

Just like the first sighting of little Robin Redbreast, an email from this Birding Group allows us a great sigh of relief because we now have affirmation that winter WILL SOON END! It is always such a pleasure to have your group here! The group of birders has grown in numbers over the last couple of years as well!

We trust you were rewarded with sightings of the many ornithological species in our Biosphere. We look forward to seeing you all again in Spring of 2013! We are really hoping our breakfast room would be expanded by then. Fingers Crossed! Until then,

Yours in Hospitality

We stayed here with a large (20) birding group and they were able to accommodate us easily. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast room is tiny but they make a concerted effort to supply whatever you need. Enjoyed our stay.

I stayed at this site on a Saturday night while attending a friend's wedding. The location was excellent; close to the major roadways, very close to shopping and restaurants. While the hotel itself is on the older side, it is very well maintained and the room was clean, in excellent repair and had everything we needed. I stayed over the Easter weekend and we even had a little Easter treat left on the desk for us to enjoy! The bathroom was spacious, the tub and shower were lovely. The addition of a small nightlight in the bathroom was a fantastic idea! The beds had ample pillows and nice blankets. It did get a little noisy early in the morning when other guests were leaving, however, the guests in the hall were considerably louder than they needed to be at 7 a.m. Check in and check out were seamless and pleasant. The front desk staff gave us excellent directions to Port Dover (we had some time to kill before the reception!). All in all, a very pleasant stay!
