Went for lunch, and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was simple (liver and onions , and quiche) and well prepared. All meals are a fixed price, three coarse selection , off a changing menu. So you might want to phone ahead to see what is on for that evening. The hotel has been in operation since 1877 and is set...

Hotel Kenney has a long history - originally with one family, the Kenneys, now with an American owner who bought it primarily because of his affection for the place and his family visits when young. During our two days there we found out that there are a number of American families who have visited year after year. In some ads...

Despite the many drawbacks mentioned by previous reviewers, we continue to return to Hotel Kenney year after year. The view and solitude of this piece of heaven is remarkable. The cabins are comfortable and homey. You have all you need, including wi-fi. This is not the Marriott, so be pre-warned. The meals are good and plentiful. We stayed for 5...

I was there with a group this summer and was given a group rate for ONE night of $80 DBL occupancy plus $30 each for our dinner for the two of us. We were told lunch and breakfast was included. We did tip our waiter and waitress. Not sure if it is included in the bill or not. Do not...

A small group of us went for lunch and were sorry we did. Service was fast, server was great. But the only option was a fixed price, three-course lunch for $17.95, and nobody really wanted it-- we would have liked something lighter. There was no vegetarian entree, so the vegetarian settled for the ham and cheese croissant minus the ham,...

The Hotel Kenney has a lot going for it. It's a traditional fishing lodge first opened in the 1870s that flourished through the middle of the twentieth century, and until recently it was owned and managed by the same family. Over time it expanded with some motel-like units and a few individual cabins, but the main building remained intact. It...

After spending a day going through locks on the Rideau spending the evening relaxing at the Kenney was perfect. The rooms were nothing to get too excited about but the sleep was comfortable and the view from the the room was picturesque. If I was to improve the hotel I would put investment into the rooms. The bathrooms need to...

We spent one night in Hotel Kenney last August, and the experience was so delightful, that we plan again to spend time in Rideau canal area, and return to Hotel Kenney. First of all, the setting, the location of the hotel is very picturesque...I took lots of photos around.(see attached photos). Check in was friendly and quick. Lunch and Dinner...

25 Years ago, my Husband and I camped next door at Shan-gri-la Campground for our honeymoon, and wished we could have stayed at the Hotel Kenney. For our 25th Anniversary, fortunately, we were able to return and ask for the "most private room" for our special occasion. We were extremely pleased and pleasantly surprised by the Hilltop Cabin for our...
