“Great Surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

Rooms are very clean and well decorated. Very comfortable bed. We didn't have a great view from our room, however, we did walk around the property and down the wharf and really enjoyed the lake and the views. If you like a leisurely stroll the wharf is a great place to spend some time. The breakfast buffet was okay.

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days. Normally I dont spend time in writing good reviews (now i come to think of it ,may be i should) . There was a wide spread power outage during our stay which lasted for a few hours. I sat in the lobby with my wife & other guest's. Hotel didnt have a generator. I was blow away with the way staff handled the situation. They started giving away glow sticks & flash lights. There was nothing else to do since the whole town was out of power. We enjoyed our time alone !! Hotel was very clean & all the staff were really nice. Our housekeeper was very friendly and she always was very cheerful & wished us whenever she saw us. She was also attentive to our special needs like extra face towels & shampoo even though we didnt ask for it. I usually stay at Residence Inn's & other Marriott's . This was extra ordinary!!!!

Room Tip: I had a room with no view. When you step outside the hotel you can see the lake. There is also a loo...

The check in staff was excellent. Not only did we receive a warm friendly welcome, but she even took us outside to show us the quickest way to our hotel room and the most convienent place to park. Unlike other "non-smoking" hotels, the hallways in this hotel were fresh and smelled great (no hint of cigarette smell at all). We were astonished when we opened the door to our room. A full kitchen (fridge, stove, and even a dishwasher with all pots and pans etc.) with dining table for 4, a welcoming sitting area with flat screen TV and fireplace and private balcony made us all smile. Everything was tastefully decorated - I could tell that they didn't cheap out decorating these suites. Then we went to check out the bedrooms (we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite). We were very pleased to see more tastefully decorated bedrooms each with a king bed, flat screen TV and a full sized ensuite bathroom. AC worked great too. The pool area was well kept and clean and they didn't go overkill on the chlorine either. The breakfast was delicious (and included in our stay) - lots of selection from eggs to waffles, fresh fruit, toast, juice and great coffee too. The outdoor scenery is awesome. There is a gazebo on the grounds that overlooks the lake. My son and husband got out the fishing polls and fished right there off the grounds. It was excellent - we will definately go back again.

We stayed here last year when my house was being painted.
Stayed in a one bedroom suite with my 6 mo. old son.
Nice balcony and separate rooms helped for when the baby took a nap.
There is not much property but you can take a short walk or jog on the trail that runs through the lakeside forest.
Overall this is a great place to stay if you want to enjoy Muskoka but also have condo-style accommodations with a full kitchen and separate rooms. There are no hotel activities like a beach or a play area, its more of a basic stay-only kind of place. There isn't really a view either, but the rooms are fairly large and the walls are pretty thick.
I wouldn't say its the most romantic or family-oriented place, but its the cleanest, most modern hotel in Gravenhurst.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights the end of July, 2011. Just a little get away with my wife before working the long weekend!!
GREAT HOTEL.
Room was very clean. 1 bedroon suite with was a good size. Full kitchen faculities if you want to use them.
Breakfast served in the morning which was good.
NO ISSUES AT ALL.
You at at the pier so a few restaurants near by and also the "Seguin" for different boat cruises.

Stayed here for a second time and still love it as a place to stay. It's clean, staff are great and the area around the hotel is lovely. Whether you have a view or not, this is a hotel that is for the picky traveler. Nothing but good things to say and we will be back!
