“This is not a boutique hotel!!!”
Reviewed June 30, 2008

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.
