Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Fabulous, large, clean room with comfortable bed and linens. Staff was friendly and responsive. Still doing breakfast drop-offs due to COVID - they were great but variety was limited for a week long stay.

6/10 Good

Expensive and no service, rooms not made daily. Had to wait for the one staff member to show up and get service at the reception counter.

10/10 Exceptional

Love the historic feel of the building but with very modern amenities. Very quiet even though it is on the main and not too far away from dining options and shopping malls. So close to nature with lots of green space but the historic feel of the old Ancaster Village is preserved. My third stay and I really enjoyed it!.
