Timmins Hotels

Deep white powder snow, frozen lakes of ice, and forests shrouded in frost – this is Timmins in winter. Nestled in frigid northern Ontario, this vibrant city’s the place to go for winter recreation, whether you prefer ice fishing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling. In summer, the snow melts away and sweet-scented flowers come in to bloom. No matter when you visit, the city’s cool art galleries, cutesy downtown boutiques, and thriving restaurant scene will keep you busy.

Things to see

Start your trip at Timmins Museum and National Exhibition Centre, a colorful modern building brimming with artefacts depicting the history of the Porcupine Camp, one of Canada’s most important mining communities. Exhibits are shown off among the vast warehouse structure, where you’ll also discover temporary exhibitions ranging from collections of works from local art groups to displays of artefacts from national museums. If you fancy checking out further displays of local art, head in to downtown Timmins where galleries are packed full of paintings in all mediums. Downtown Timmins is also the place to browse the rails of cool boutiques before heading to a locally-owned bistro for lunch. Once you’ve had your fill of tasty delights, take a stroll through Gillies Lake Park, a leafy conservation area with boardwalks, wildlife viewing hotspots, and a 2.5 kilometer lit walking trail overlooking sparkly Gillies Lake. Avid golfers should head out to Hollinger Golf Club to practice their game on the grassy fairways.

Hotels in Timmins

Most Timmins’ hotels are 2-star motels and inns providing simple rooms with mod-cons like WiFi, flat-screen TVs, and tea and coffee making facilities. If you fancy splashing a bit more cash, a few 3-star hotels have extra perks like on-site fitness suites, hot tubs, and large rooms with pristine décor. A few guesthouses and inns go the extra mile with personable service, homemade breakfasts, and traditional décor – think dark wood furniture and chintzy fabrics. If you’re traveling with kids, you might prefer Timmins’ larger hotels, as they generally have family-friendly amenities like an on-site or close-by restaurant.

Where to stay

Most hotels in Timmins are located on or near to Hwy 101 which cuts through the city. There are quite a few cheap hotels on the highway to the east or west of the city center, though you will be further from amenities. If you’re planning on spending much of your time at Gillies Lake or Hollinger Golf Club, stay central or to the east of town to be close to either of these. Central hotels are a stone’s throw from downtown Timmins’ restaurants, stores, and galleries. It’s a fab spot to base yourself to be able to take an evening stroll from your hotel room to bistro table.

How to get to Timmins

Timmins Victor M. Power Airport is just a 15-minute drive from the city center. It has flight connections to Toronto and other Ontario communities. If you’re arriving here, you can rent a vehicle at the airport, though there’s a wider selection of rental agencies in town. Unless you plan on adventuring outside of downtown Timmins you won’t need a vehicle, as downtown’s small enough to leisurely explore on foot. An efficient public bus system operates around town and makes for an easy means of transport if you prefer not to walk or drive.
