one of the remaining old style Muskoka hotels. We were in for lunch and sat in the upper patio overlooking Lake Muskoka, watching the boats and swimmers enjoying a beautiful summer day. Friends who have stayed at the hotel were quite positive about the accomodation. In past we have experienced a great supper meal at the main dining area. However, the food at the patio was average, at best. My boeuf au jus was a disappointment. Typically this meal is served with medium rare beef and the "juice" plain drippings from the roast. This meal consisted of overcooked beef between a large white bread bun and the "jus" reminded one of canned beef gravy - quite thick and little beef taste. The other folks also found their meals OK, but not remarkable to any degree. On the other hand, they featured sweet potato fries which were excellent. We would return for a main evening meal and will likely try the lunch again to see if this was a "one-off" experience. Anyone who is disabled would be wise to enter by the main door and use the elevator to access the patio.

Just finished dinner at this establishment. It was so disappointing. For example. the Kale and Goat Cheese Dinner Salad was served in a soup bowl for $13.00. It was a few Kale leaves and a sprinkle of goat cheese and two carrot slices. Unbelievable!! The quality and quantity of food is a joke. The wonderful location is their excuse to rip off their guests. Prices for wine are ridiculous!
The very idea that nachos could deserve a $19 price is laughable. Just because the location is upscale does not give the owner leave to treat their guest so poorly!!

The pub downstairs is well stocked and easily accessible to the outside from the front of the hotel.This is the 3rd or 4th version of this old hotel that has had bad luck with fires. The glorious version I remember from the seventies was destroyed by fire in 1991during the making of the movie "The long kiss goodnite" with Geena Davis and was rebuilt to a newer standard. The old stonework at the front was saved and was incorporated in the new building. Still a Muskoka gem worth visiting.
