“Great value for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed March 10, 2011

We took advantage of the Lakeview's excellent wintertime "Sweet deal" package which includes a room and two meals at an extremely competitive price. Because the prices were so good, we decided to upgrade to a vacation suite in the new wing of the hotel. The room was spacious, attractive and well-appointed, so it was definitely worth it.

The hotel restaurant was a treat, and can be best described as "country upscale". Certainly not a suit-and-tie kind of place, but classy just the same with good food and great service.

The hotel offers some nice amenities like free DVD rentals with a good selection of recent movies. There is also a pool, sauna and hot tub, but since it was a long weekend the area was filled with kids so we didn't spend a lot of time in there. Families were also using the games room equipped with a pool table and a basic selection of video games and pinball machines.

As I said, the room itself was excellent and the suite had a very handy kitchenette. The bathroom was very well designed and impeccably clean. The room had a nice big balcony off the living room although it was much too cold to use it.

While Gimli is a hub of activity in the summer, be warned that it gets much quieter in the winter. There are museums, shops and restaurants nearby, but it probably won't hold your attention for more than one day. But with rooms as nice as these, you might not want to go outside in the first place!

My husband and I stayed at the Lakeview Inn & Suites in Gimli, Manitoba for our anniversary. We took advantage of a great special Lakeview has in its off season which includes dinner for two/breakfast and a deal on a room. We stayed in one of their spacious suites with a view of the lake. The room look dated, carpet showing wear but was clean. The staff were attentive with the food being of good quality.

The hotel was dirty. Filthy carpets, mildew on the shower curtain, small counter space. Pools were hot. Beach was rocky. Left a very valuable item behind and they are making it very difficult to get back. I will tell everyone I know to never go to this hotel. I will call newspapers if I have to, until I get my item back and if I have to drive all the way out there to get it now, I expect them to pay for the costs.

Went Gimli for a birthday getaway with friends and family who has never been to Gimli. And was greeted by a grouchy front desk clerk and the service at the Seagull Restaurant was non-existent. We did consider the short of staff on long weekends, but at lest take notice and greet us. Mind you Gimli is a lovely lakeside town with friendly people. But the hotel is not worth the rate it charges and needs to train the staff better.

I have celiacs disease and I was a little concerned about going away and having someone else cook for me. The staff was fantastic, the chef even called up to our room and prepared a special meal for me. The hotel was great, everything we were looking for.

We were looking for something last minute for Spring Break and were unable to find a suitable, reasonably-priced hotel with a pool in Winnipeg. We came across the ad for Lakeview Resort in the phone book, and decided to give it a try as it seemed family friendly at a reasonable price. The hotel itself could use some updating, but it was very clean and the staff were friendly. We were able to get in the same day we made the booking, and were even advised that we could check in early as the room was ready. We took advantage of a Spring Break special that made the trip well worth the money (I guarantee you could not find the equivalent in Winnipeg at the same price). With younger kids (8 and 10), I liked that the bed (a king) was in a separate room for the adults and I really appreciated the fridge and sink in the sitting area. There were also daily activities that the kids could attend.

When we had a mechanical problem in our room, we were upgraded to a beach-view vacation suite without asking and at no additional charge. The kids loved it! They also liked the pool (clean and not crowded when we were there) and the games room (although some games were really loud). My only complaint there was that the pool was so far from where we were staying...we had to walk through almost the entire hotel to get there, and it was cold walking back to the room wet.

Supper at Seagulls was ok, but breakfast the next morning was great and the service was friendly. The view was nice (although the lake was still frozen) but, being our first visit to Gimli, we'd like to go back in the summer during prime season (although it should be noted that the room rates are substantially higher in the summer). Next time though, I would like to venture outside of the hotel for meals, etc. to experience what the rest of Gimli has to offer.

Nice location for this hotel. The hotel is older and dated and could use some upgrades. Rooms are clean, balcony for every room. Free movies. Pool is huge, sauna and hot tub as well. The rooms with the king bed and microwave are really nice! Desk allowed us to have access to our room hours before check in which was really nice for the hockey team as waiting in between games was brutal. we are already planning a stay here again sometime...maybe in summer to see the harbour and all the summer activities.
