Upon our arrival, the heat was off in the room. It was an exceptionally cold (-25C) weekend, so it was freezing in there. I told the front desk staff that it was off, and they confirmed that it was intentional. The floors, especially in the bathroom, were too cold to stand on. So we cranked up the heat and explored the town for a couple of hours to allow the room to heat up. Thankfully, the heater in our room worked very well. Even so, it took a good 24 hours for the floors to warm up to a comfortable level.
The breakfast was only offered from 7-9AM, so the first morning of our hockey tournament, we had to eat elsewhere. On the morning we did eat there, the food was decent, but a pretty small selection (both hot and cold cereal, waffles, toast, fruit, boiled eggs, coffee, hot chocolate, tea).
The kids seemed to enjoy the pool, though it was so foggy in there, they could hardly be seen. (The extreme cold weather contributed to the fog situation, I'm sure.)
