“Have some fun at night..”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This could be considered a plus for guests of the Hilton Lac Leamy.
It provided some nightlife in the hotel property. Other than the games, it was a nice place to go for a drink, to have late night snack and some fun for people who sleep late.

The casino was just next door of the hotel, very spacious, trendy, nicely decorated and well maintained. Lots of counter for free coffee, tea and soft drinks.. A festive atmosphere, not too noisy ( to my surprise) and many game players seemed to be hotel guests who came here just for fun. That’s good, no strong smell of “gambling” in the air at the time when we were there. Comparing with the one at the Niagara Fall Hilton, I like this one better, much better.

We only stayed at the slot machine zone for a while and went to the bar to have beer.
Musical performance from local and national musicians took place at the
theatre, unfortunately we didn’t have time to enjoy this for our last stay.

“Renos just about done...lovely!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We made a quick visit to the Casino on a recent family vacation. The renovations are just about done and some of the new features are very 'Vegas-like'...beautiful. There are a lot of new slot machines as well. We didn't will but I will return for a visit on my next business trip to Ottawa.

“French French French”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Stayed in Ottawa for the weekend for a wedding. Went to the Casino to try my luck. I was not comfortable from the start. Here are the reasons why:

1. I did not know where to park my car (not a good start)
2. They had this weird craps table where one side had the players. Also only 1 dealer to handle the table (made it slower)
3. The cards are french. I just can not get use to french cards (Kings, Queens, Jacks)
4. Age is 18 so you get alot. I mean alot of kids who try their luck at blackjack and have absolutely no clue of what they are doing. I have seen guys hit when a dealer had a 6 and bust and then the dealer makes their hand when they should have busted
5. Verbal loud yelling in the poker room makes it very unprofessional
6. Very sad since there were a lot of people who stunk. Looks like they are gambling with whatever money they can dig up.

Definitely will not go to Lac Leamy again.

“Stunning Setting”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Casino du Lac Leamy is situated on the banks of an old quarry. The design of the casino and the grounds are beautiful. Complimentary hot and cold (non-alcoholic) drinks are available at a few self-serve stations. Drink carts with alcoholic beverages for sale are constantly circulating. In addition there are a couple of bars including a beautiful new one in the centre of the casino where bistro tables are set and live music is available most evenings.
The casino is kept very clean and staff are friendly. Parking is abundant and underground parking is available which is nice on inclement days. Valet parking is also provided.
On the main level of the casino you will find a vast selection of slot machines and table games. The poker room is also on the main level. On the upper level (3rd floor) are most of the video poker machines and a couple of restaurants including the 5 star Baccara and a casual eatery called The Bistro. On the lower level is a quick cafe serving breakfast and other light meals.
The lobby is decorated beautifully with seasonal displays. Overall a wonderfully pleasant experience.
