My husband and I decided to get away from Toronto for a 2 days stay at the Falls Inn for our anniversrary. The Inn is very beautiful and well kept and the location is right beside the waterfall which is lovely. You could hear the waterfall from your room when the windows or balcony door was open. When we arrived, we were checked in and the lady at the reception(can't remember her name, but started with a J), she was very helpful to provide a bit of history on Walters Falls, things to do and see around the area. Our room was very clean(which I am very picky about). The beds were not very comfortable. I would give this place a 8/10 for cleaniness, service and location. The only thing I had an issue with was the food. It was average, nothing special, and that is putting it kindly. The only thing I enjoyed was the morning breakfast, which came with a choice of french toast or fruit salad. The amount of food included in the room package was small in proportion and anything else you had to pay extra, which was pricey because just for eggs or smoked salmon and a bagel it cost $12! this seemed silly to me since even in Toronto, breakfast is not even that expensive. Lunch food from the pation was a disappointment. I had fish and chips, I could not finish even finish my food because the food had no taste. My husband had a burger, which was not any better, I had tasted it and realized that they had too many competiting tastes happening you could not even taste the meat. I had hoped dinner would be an improvement. We had planned to go out for dinner but my husband convinced me for us to stay and try their dinner, in hopes that it would be better. I had a steak and crab-mash potatoes and my husband had the lamb. I was only able to eat the mash potatoes and a quarter of my steak because it tasted horrible. There was no seasoning, and it was over cooked. My husband also did not finish his lamb as he mentioned it was tough. We had ended sharing a table with another couple who were also staying there, and the lady complained of how hard her pheasant was that she did not finish it either. I am a bit surprised that such a lovely Inn, with great service does not have better food. They really need to work on that if they want people to stay there and enjoy their food. Also we did a few walks/hikes in the area along the Bruce trail which was lovely and visited Inglis Falls, a very beautiful waterfall. The surrounding towns were very nice and we toured, Coffin Ridge Winery, the town of Meadford, Owen Sound and Muskoka(Blue Mountains). Our experience as a whole was lovely and I would definately come back, but would not eat lunch or dinner there. Looking forward to our next visit to Walter's Falls.
