Reviewed December 25, 2011

I have stayed here a few times over the past few years for business. I have requested my employer book a room here each time that I travel to Manitoulin Island because it feels like I am returning to visit an old friend. It`s not fancy, just homey and differs from the usual hotel-type establishment. I have stayed in the downstairs queen bed room (accessed from the outside) and upstairs in a cozy, carpeted room--both were quaint and comfortable. What really makes this establishment special to me is the owner. I am recognized and welcomed warmly. Breakfast (eggs made to order, bacon or ham, juice, coffee, toast) in the rustic dining room is often accompanied by a friendly chat. Dinner can be requested so it is not necessary to go out after a long day and search for a place to eat. The location is close to downtown.

We stayed at the Shaftesbury Inn and Boutique Hotel while travelling through Manitoulin Island.

I was expecting a lot more for the amount we were charged and description provided of the property on the website.

I would compare the room to that of a comfort inn or best western. A basic small fridge, small TV, Table with Chairs and a bed.

The carpet was new and clean. The toilet leaked.The toiletries consist of tear open plastic sleeves of shampoo (2 only) and a small basic bar of soap.

The towels in the rooms were thin and rough. We were charged for local calls, which due to the lack of cell phone coverage on the island is a necessity - even to use a calling card.

The breakfast provided was fine. Same 4 choices every day.

The dinners are acceptable, nothing special, but very over priced for what you get. The prices are not posted, so ensure you ask before you order. Same with drinks.
