“Wonderful hotel in a beautiful town”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

We recently stayed at the Samuels Hotel when visiting Goderich for the day, at first it doesn't look like anything special but once inside it thoroughly impressed us. The service was wonderful, the front desk staff was helpful and recommended a wonderful restaurant for dinner (Thyme 21). We had booked a King suite with jacuzzi tub and it overlooked the river, we experienced a wonderful sunset from our room and were able to enjoy the fireplace as well.
The room itself was everything you need, very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the drapes were so heavy that we didn't even know how late it was when we woke up because it was so dark in the room.
They offer breakfast, which they call continental, but they have the added benefit of making waffles for you. It was nothing extravagant but filled us for the morning.
The location of the hotel was very convenient, less than a 5 minute drive to the main area of the town, the same distance to the beach and overlooking the river.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Goderich.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river, it looked some some of the rooms overlooked the parking lot.

Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review for Samuels Hotel. We appreciate your comments. Next time you arrive you will see a new garden and a large piece of art in front of our hotel. It's busy being custom made as we speak! I believe it will help make the outside of our boutique hotel as elegant and contemporary as the inside. Once again, thanks for your comments and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

We just had our first stay at Samuels Hotel, and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The people here are very friendly and helpful! Our outside door looked out onto the Maitland River, so the scenery was very natural and beautiful. The room was clean and modern, and the bed was very comfortable so we had a good restful sleep. Breakfast was very good, a yummy continental breakfast with hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and fresh fruit parfaits, and a hot freshly-made waffle brought to our table, The rates were quite reasonable, and we'll most certainly be back since we've already booked our next stay!

Room Tip: Book a riverside room. We took a peek at the two-bedroom suite, and it was absolutely gorgeous!

Recently I stayed at this hotel for a five day business trip. Every detail has been covered in this property. Luxurious, well thought out, beautiful! Breakfast was brought to my room the night before (yogurt, fresh fruit salad, juice, etc) I would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: A superb spot to stay. The best stay of all

We stayed at the Samuels during a visit to Goderich on a business trip. It was referred to us by Huron County staff and their recommendation was well-founded. This is a first class small hotel with spacious rooms, a very good continental breakfast, friendly and well-informed staff and a very wholesome environment. If you are looking for something far more memorable than a chian motel, this is it!

We were very pleased with our recent stay. We were upgraded to the river side room that we really enjoyed. The owner was very pleasant and provided us with waffles for breakfast even though it was supposed to be a continental breakfast.

On our checkout she also asked if we would like a free pair of tickets to the Goderich Home Tour that was taking place the same day. We accepted her generous offer and had a marvelous time visiting the beautifuly decorated for Christmas homes.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to the river side which has very pleasant view.

I have been staying at Samuels Hotel in Goderich now for a few months on business, and have stayed in many of the "usual" hotels like Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Hilton, etc....to name a few and nothing compares to the experience that i have gotten at this little hotel. Upon arriving on a daily basis i am consistantly greeted by the staff that always aims to please. They continually take care of anything that is ever needed, without hesitation. You sometimes get the no name shampoos and soaps at the big box hotels and motels and rarely ever use them, but here they serve Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries which i LOVE, and the fact they have gone the 'little' extra mile to pay such attention to detail only adds to the awesome experience. The Hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous and exceptionally clean. I dont know how they do it, but the linens and towels are super duper white and changed daily!! Other than the amazing scenery of the landscape around the building with the Maitland river a quarter of a mile in front with the trails in every direction to wander in the morning and nite, the best part is the continental breakfast offered. And NO its not your usual stale day old bagels and brown bananas, its fresh daily baked muffins and breads, homemade waffles with REAL maple syrop(my personal favourite), theres also fresh granola, yogourt parfaits, fresh coffee and teas, juices and milks, fresh fruits...........AND HOT HARD BOILED EGGS!!!!!!!i dont ever get hard boiled eggs anywhere else without paying an arm and leg!!I I dont know what else i could possibly rave about this hotel as i have stayed in every room and had the same amazing experience in every one!! Oh yes, and they all have gas fireplaces for that extra warm touch. There is only one tragic flaw to this hotel ,that for myself, being the work traveller that i am is very unfortunate,.............is that there is only one Samuels, and its in Goderich Ontario. And when i am in other towns, i do not get all of these amazing qualities anywhere. I hope one day there are chains of this hotel with the same amazing staff at all of them. I am not usually one to write a review to share exciting experiences, even though i frequent tripadvisor and gain from others experiences, but i i finally have had such an AWESOME experience myself, that i feel its about time i pay back and share the knowledge.

Room Tip: All rooms have great, GREAT mattresses for excellent sleeps,so it doesnt matter which room you choos...
