We stayed at this resort in early March 2020. We were most impressed. It isn't a fancy place, but it is very good value for what is charged, and has very friendly and helpful staff. The pool, hot tub and sauna were all much enjoyed after a day on the slopes. It is only a short drive to Georgian Peaks, and Blue Mountain is also an easy drive (if a little further). The two bedroom unit was spacious and had a beautiful view over Georgian Bay. We'll be back!
The place is just 15 min drive from Blue. It's very roomy and all units oversee the harbour. The place is an ex-condo building built some time in the 80-s. I think it's even nicer during the summer period.
The check-in was fast and easy.
As a friendly advise to the owner of this place: we sign the paperwork when we check in that we know that pets are not allowed. I'm absolutely fine with that.
Probably it would make sense to add there that it's not polite to swim in the pool in the clothes. And it's also not polite to put feet into the hot tub if the guest just sits on the chair near by. I couldn't use the hot tub with someone's feet in it. And I removed my kids from the pool when I saw people in clothing (not a swimming suit) using it.
Just my 2 pennies.
Our daughter and granddaughter were here from Australia and they got to ski at Blue Mountain. We all loved the view from our 2nd floor unit. The pool, sauna, hot tub and exercise room were super. We have been to this resort many times and will continue to go to Royal Harbour.
Rooms are a bit dated but still nice. Love the location overlooking marina and beach. Thornbury is a really nice town, with some nice restaurants a block away. Georgian trail is also a block away, great for riding bikes. Resort has nice indoor pool and hot tub. The Bruce Wine Bar and The Corner are very good restaurants to check out. Also shout out to the staff, very accommodating.
Our forth year and we enjoy the pool,sauna and hot tub. Staff very helpfull and responsive to anything that We needed. The wi/fi is rather slow when a lot of users are on line. Unloading on arrival and loading when leaving is very easy from the back lot.
