Value - paid $200 for 1 night weeknight stay and breakfast, but due to a billing mistake on their part, we got a free $85 dinner! Food itself was pretty good (particularly the fries and panini sandwich), with limited vegetarian selections. Wine, coffee and snacks were extra, and generally quite overpriced. Free newspapers and magazines is a nice touch.
Facilities - smelly and musty throughout (our corner room with king sized bed smelled like a gerbil cage!), with old carpets and doors showing age. Limited soundproofing of walls. Gym was tiny and poorly ventilated. Pool was warm, and hot tub and sauna were quite comfortable. Games/billiards room were cozy, and selection of board/card games was excellent. Make sure you visit the tower/viewpoint for a great view of the lake. Only 1 elevator makes carrying luggage up and down the stairs a bit cumbersome!
Location - right across from Lake Simcoe, with easy access to a lakeside road to run along. Forest/golf/ski paths were fairly muddy and icy/slushy, although worth attempting as we got to see 3 deer! Easy to drive to, only 50 minutes from Thornhill!
Spa - friendly and well trained staff for a $54 half-hour Swedish massage. Shower, lockers and changerooms were reasonably kept.
