Roadhouse fare....wings are terrific! Eggs Benny, served for breakfast, is legendary here. People drive just to have the eggs benny...so worth it. Nothing fancy in the dining room...almost a sports bar atmosphere. People and staff are friendly. Great to see that a family run business is successful.

We always feel like we are going home when we visit the Colonial. We have been local residents for years, but we often go weeks without seeing our great group of friends. Every Wednesday is the traditional wing night and always results in a spontaneous gathering of the local crew. The draft beer, wine and spirits are excellent. Something to wash down the tasty chicken wings which present good value. Do not miss the eggs benedict on Sunday mornings, which have become quite a tradition in this area. The food and drink are always backed by friendly staff. The local owners are a stalwart in the community.

The actual breakfast is DELISH! the eggs benedict are famous in this area - recommended by the locals and I've gone back 3 times for them. The restaurant is old fshioned and the same feel as the rest of the hotel. The newest part of the hotel appears to be the lobby.They are only supposed to be served on Sunday but they've accomodated on Saturdays when I told them it was my reason for coming. However... the service isn't great... There is one head waitress (lifer) whom is fantastic, but the others aren't up to par. It's a dinerish atmosphere but hey - you're at the beach! Though I like the casual sense, the cleanliness isn't as good as it could be... all the glasses are streaky, the silverware isn't polished, and two of our coffee mugs had encrusted residue that the dish washer missed.

The dining area and meu need to be updated. This has probably been untouched in 25 years. I can't comment on the lounge because I don't know.

We have just returned to Peterborough from spending two great days in Grand Bend. The Colonial Hotel is certainly part of our great experience in Grand Bend. The accommodation was supurb. Clean, comfy and everything you would want at a hotel. The food was great , the staff was so helpful and yes..it is a tradional family business and that what makes your stay there so special..you are family too. Thanks for letting us be part of your family.
