Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities




6/10 Good

The property is located in a beautiful forested area with lovely views of Lake Simcoe. The grounds are extensive and the hotel itself is very large with a wide range of facilities (indoor pool, spa, tennis courts, billiards and ping pong). The building is evidently historical, and it would be a nice added bonus to provide information about it to guests. Most of the building is in need to renovation/repair; the hotel room is pleasant and the staff are friendly, but it is not quite at the luxury level that it advertises itself to be.

8/10 Very good

Slightly outdated Service is painfully slow due to not enough staff. Waited 20 minutes for a drink twice:( Enjoyed the food and variety. Would benefit tremendously from an outdoor pool. No beach area on the actual lake to swim in. Spa treatment was terrific. Expensive for the available amenities. Andre

Cons: Paid $275 for a room, had better rooms at motel 6. Rugs worn out, furniture had paint scraped off, bath tub had chips. Found empty juice box and t-shirt of previous guest under bed Food is average but overpriced, breakfast buffet was priced at $35 but worth maybe $15 for the 6 hot items it had available. Waitresses were friendly but unknowledgable in wines. No activities Pro's Grounds and Spa Manager goes out of her way to ensure happiness Nice property but way beyond its times as a resort, needs major updating
