We stay here for the outdoor music shows at the water front grill,twice this year in the river view king room. Like the heated washroom floor everything just makes it now as the carpets are stained and rooms worn out, paint fading. Good service, the outdoor grill, great location by the water, out side decor up to speed. Now lets... More

Hotel is very dated, but probably best in Peterborough. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Felt sorry for them as groups of rowdy kids and their families checked in for weekend baseball tournament. This place is actually decent enough for locals to hold weddings. I would recommend this place for short stay, but Peterborough really needs an other option.

This is a marginal Holiday Inn. Rooms on the street side are extremely noisy. The rooms are standard mid-60's style/decor - I'm sure the carpet throughout the hotel dates from the day the hotel opened. The upholstery on the chairs in my room were filthy - big stains. I didn't want to put anything on them. The beds were reasonably... More

This is a "classic" Holiday Inn (no big surprises). Rooms are clean, beds (and pillows) very comfortable. I would recommend a room with a river view — I was on the street side and it was a bit noisy with traffic and a busy Tim Horton's across the street. Front desk staff very efficient and helpful.

It has been a long time sine I stayed in a Holiday Inn. They were always tired and had no appeal to me. This one was clean and updated. The reception was VERY welcoming. The room refreshed and tech ready.
