Reviewed July 20, 2013

We stayed here recently for one night as two couples. The 2 rooms were booked on the same reservation, at the same cost, but they were surprisingly different. One room was a very large single room, with a king size bed, a seating area, and a nice little balcony. It had two minor issues - the television was old with lots of static (although we only turned it on for about 5 minutes) and the bathroom was not very large, although good enough for what we needed. The other room had 2 bedrooms, one with 2 single beds and the other with a king size bed. This one had a large flat screen TV, and an extremely large bathroom. So while the two rooms cost the same, they were very different, and I could see how the differences might not meet up with what some guests need. I'd suggest making it very clear what you are looking for in the room upon booking.

I took one star off because we weren't particularly happy with the dinner our night there. In particular, two members of our group ordered the fish dish, and were not too happy with what they received.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable, if short, stay at Glen House and would happily return if we were in the area.

Spent July 6 and 7 at the hotel for some relaxation. We will come back. really nice people/staff.
Most of my observations are positive. The room was fine with a small deck an chairs overlooking the pool and river. It was clean and functional but may require some modern updates(tv).
Grounds and pool were very nice as well as dock system for boaters swimmers and fishing.
We ate at the bar both nights and the food service and prices were all good.
Very good Sunday breakfast with the omelette guy doing a super job at the buffet.
Only true negative is we are fitness nuts who really enjoy a well equipped gym or fitness room, their offering should be closed or totally renovated, it is the worst I been to.

Room - very nicely decorated. Balcony overlooking the water with 2 chairs and table. Two double beds. Very clean.
Grounds - immaculate. Beautiful flowers. Lots of chairs and lounges.
Restaurant - poor service in the bar area. Dining room was very nice. Good food - suggest the pub menu for a lighter meal.
Canoes and kayaks - rentals. $10/hr.
Nearby - walking/biking trail across the street. Golf course. About 10 min from town.

Room Tip: Get a 2nd floor room - no elevators but worth the walk. A lot of foot traffic along the waterfront...

Early June 2013, two couples were doing a golf tour of Eastern Ontario, stayed one night and played golf at Smuggler's Glen (owned by the resort). The reception we received was excellent. The "Riverview" (the river view was not great from our rooms - high 130's) rooms were clean but a little dated. The breakfast is not included in the rate and is a little rich starting at $12, but it was good and the service very friendly. I think one can get much better value with the package deals. The golf course is excellent and enjoyable to play. Definitely will look at returning on a golf "stay-and-play".

My wife and I usually stay at 4 or five star hotels. We were expecting the same when we paid the price we did for this hotel. Nice area but the hotel is just not worth the money they expect us to pay. The service was not up to par. Not all staff were friendly, especially the front end staff. The food was terrible. It was very cold. Escargot was no where close to being hot. The salmon was overcooked and dry. When I asked for wood ( I should not have had to ask, it should have been part of the room), for the fireplace, the employee was wearing shorts and running shoes. They gave me 2"x4" lumber as kindling. New bath room but no soap shelves, really guys!. Decor was out dated in the rooms. Pool bathrooms were dirty. Other than that, we did actually have a good time but only because we toured around by motorcycle and the views were great.

We just got married at the Glen House resort this June, 2013. We have nothing but good comments and feedback from us and our guests. The staff was super helpful, friendly and accommodating and the chef was amazing. Our guests all loved the venue, and the food was absolutely delicious! The portions were big, a lot of people couldn't even come close to finishing their portions.

The site and rooms are all very nice and very clean. I would recommend this venue without hesitation!

Room Tip: There are four little cottages that can sleep up to 10 people!

We just returned from our annual Spring golf trip in Gananoque.
We've been going to the Glen House for 5 years now (Spring and Fall each year).
The staff at the Glen House have always been pleasant and very accomodating especially since we are always travelling in a larger group.
The stay and play packages are a phenomenal deal!
The restaurant has just gone though some upgrades (in the Bar area) which looks fantastic.
Always clean and well kept.
With golf across the street and a short drive into town, you can't go wrong with this beautiful waterfront location!
See you in October :)

Room Tip: We have stayed in most room types. Non-riverview rooms were updated within the last year / two and...
