My wife and I were returning from Toronto's Pearson airport after a week's vacation in Cuba. We had to pick up our dog from a kennel in Thorndale, so - it being late - we decided to stay in nearby Ingersoll and then pick up our pooch the following morning.
We were greeted by a pleasant, smiling, and helpful woman at the front desk. The hotel had apparaently been having problems with hot water that day, but our room had no such problem. However, it was VERY cold in the room when we first opened the door. The temperature outside was about -15C. We cranked up the heat and the bed area warmed up nicely. It took awhile for the bathroom to heat up. That floor was frigid.
We decided in short order to try the pool and hot tub. OH, was that what we needed! The pool is small, but warm. The hot tub was big and roomy and not too hot (I hate hot tubs that are so scalding you can only stay in them for 3 minutes).
Ingersoll, apparently gets its water from wells. You can smell the sulfur in the water but it is not an extremely strong odor. In fact, I enjoyed the smell of it in the hot tub. It helped me feel as if I was at a mineral hot springs resort!
The only issue with the room was that it looked somewhat run down. There were rust stains at the drains in the sink and bathtub. Otherwise, the room was comfortable and quiet. The beds were clean and we enjoyed a sound night's sleep.
A continental breakfast was provided, but what a breakfast!!! Fresh made waffles (I LOVE those self-serve waffle irons!), scrambled eggs, yogurt, toast, hard-boiled eggs, pastries, coffee, juice, and sausages. After a week in Cuba, I certainly relished this feast!
The hotel is conveniently located just off the 401, with restaurants nearby. It is reasonably priced and recommended.
