I booked a room for this hotel after I saw the amazing rating here in Tripadvisor. I had really high expectations for leisure vacation in a luxury hotel.
When I arrived I discovered that this hotel is located in the middle of a really ugly parking lot on both sides of the hotel in an uninspired neighborhood of Oriilia.
The loby is nice and tiny, and check in was nothing exceptional.
I must admit that the room we got, was VERY clean and nicely prepared. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good.
They also have a silly ritual of knocking on the door EVERY afternoon to bring you a card with the weather forecast for the following day with small mint chocolates.
The breakfast was our biggest disappointment. There was nothing more than an average "Days Inn" continental breakfast with almost no place to seat.
We also wanted to have room service, however around 10:30 pm we were informed that the "housekeeper" was out, so we had to head to the nearest coffee shop (not that they have in Orillia so many places to dine in).
After all, it is a nice hotel, but nothing that justifies the very high pricing (I would rate it as a 3 star hotel). For the price this hotel charges I can easily find a 5 star hotel in a better location.
