“Best place to have a Golf Tournament, WOW!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This resort is operated by a great staff. From the General Manager, Louise to the groundscrew, they all make you feel like they really want you to enjoy your stay. I highly recommend anyone looking to relax and feel like your Family owns and runs the resort, this is it.
The Mill River Golf is just a big bonus. One of the finest courses I have ever played. I will be back in Canada soon and that will be our destination.

Room Tip: The views of the golf course and fountain is great.

Average resort hotel, unfortunately the air conditioning was not working in hallways, dining room and other common areas which made it almost unbearable (and no fore warning). Dining staff were all sweet although food was 2/5 at best. After staying at other resorts in the Maritime provinces I wouldnt agree with the 3.5 star rating but also wanting to boost tourism in our provinces I don't want to criticize this one too much. I think the management could make it a better experience for guests and possibly breathe some life and innovation and service into a tired resort.

I have always wanted to visit PIE! the most concentrated area of potato production in the world. When on a holiday to visit Canada, we took the opportunity to visit the area. When we crossed the famous Confederation Bridge, worth a visit to the area on it's own, we were recommended this hotel. We were disappointed to find a bunch of potatoAAmerican golfers at the hotel, however the room was fine, shower was a bit dated. Dinner was excellent and the staff were very accommodating to a pair of fussy Scots, we like our food and are quite particular. We both ordered starters as main courses who h was no trouble at all and both were delicious. After being so good on main courses we spoilt ourselves and had a sweet, coconut ice, which was fantastic. The pool is a great bonus and the squash courts were in great condition and raquets were available to hire. Overall a great stopover.

This is a very nice hotel.

Kind of a labyrinth to get to the indoor pool or so, but the pool is gorgeous.

There are no elevators, so if you need to move stuff around the 3 levels (as in a convention) it will become an issue.

The TV's need to be replaced with newer models.

Overall good experience.

First of all I get nervous when my son's hockey teams stay overnight in a hotel due to noise, playing hockey in the hallways, etc. When we arrived at the Rodd not only did they welcome us with cheer, they GAVE the kids mini hockey sticks to use!! This had to be the best hotel geared for kids that we have ever stayed at! Huge games room where there were mini sticks games, ping pong table, etc. The pool and waterside were great! The weather wasn't great so we didn't get a chance to enjoy the outdoor activities the Rodd offered but they looked fun too! Let's just say that staying at the Rodd Mill River is a stress free experience and the staff and facility were great!

I stayed here for a week in March as part of a curling event and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It also happened to be spring break so there were lots of families there too; there were a ridiculous amount of activities for them which was fun to see (bouncy castle, games room, movies, daily activities, bon fires, etc). During our downtime, my team was able to sample some free ice cream with maple syrup at the Sugar Shack/Sugar Bush and learn all about maple syrup creation, we had a free horse-drawn sleigh ride, consumed some yummy meals in the dining room and enjoyed some fantastic hospitality. The rooms were a good size and we had a gorgeous view of the golf course. The hotel amenities are quite nice too - good sized gym with cardio and strength equipment, a big pool and hot tub, squash courts, games room, etc.

From start to finish, we were made to feel welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the golf course

We just stayed at the Rodd Mill River in Prince Edward Island for three nights and had a great time! We took part in the "Winterfest Weekend" special where our breakfast was included during our entire stay. A pizza and pitcher of pineapple juice was also part of the package. Great value! We went with another family and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Here is a list of things we got to do with our children at this resort: snow tubbing, racket ball, swimming (90 foot slide included), arts and craft, sleigh ride, watched a movie in the hotel's movie room, blow-up castle room (10 and under)... The resort also rents snow shoes and cross country skiis at reasonable rates. EVERY staff member we encountered was friendly and professional. They went above and beyond their calls of duty. An extra special thank you to Kim who works at the hotel!

If you are looking for a fun, family oriented resort, you need to take them to this place. It's not a 5 star hotel, but the experience is certainly 5 star!!! We will go back for sure!

Room Tip: Our room was located on the top floor and on the golf course side, lovely!
