“Never again”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

In the summer of 2012 we made reservation with the Wolseley Lodge In Noelville
Ontario. When the reservations were made we requested a two bedroom cottage,
the reason for our stay was to attend a weeding on that Saturday.
We were asked for a credit card number to reserved the room, and the cost would be $350 for two nights.
We arrived on the Friday afternoon and checked in. We were asked to pay for the room
in full. The cottage we were in was deplorable.
The entrance door was an aluminum storm door with no lock.
The kitchen window had a screen and no glass.
The bathroom and shower was a rough add-on on the back of the cottage with cobweb included.

The next morning we woke up at 8:30AM with no Hydro, no running water, no working
bathroom and no shower.
Because of the wedding we decided check out and to drive back to Sudbury


(260 KM round trip)
in order to get ready for the wedding .
We went to the lodge office and request to check out and get a refund for the second
day. We were told

NO REFUNDS
, it was not their problem that the Hydro was out.
Finally after a 30 minute conversation the manager gave us half the amount we were entitled.
I would not recommend this Wolseley bay to anyone.

This lodge has excellent home cooked meals, cost is prob average and fair. They do like to sell the rooms as having a king size bed but it's really two single beds pushed together very uncomfortable. The cabins are clean and the grounds are well kept. Boats are amazing. This is a good site strictly for fishing, it has beautiful surroundings but very isolated. Not much around and any sites are mostly accessible by boat only and far. We came with kids and there wasn't much for them to do. I do feel this is great for fishing enthusiasts only or outdoorsy couples.

Room Tip: Bring extra blankets, some nights are chillier. Also make sure your "king size bed" isn...
