Excellent place to stay while hiking on the Bruce Trail in this area. Staff very friendly. Accommodation comfortable. Room equipped with fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. A walk to a variety of restaurant options in town.

I saw some of the same staff all weekend. And they were still smiling. The rooms were clean. Beds comfortable. He restaurant amazing....

Hi Lisetteki, Thank you for posting such a wonderful review of our hotel. I am very proud of the employees here and the effort they put forth to make our guests feel comfortable during their stay.

I mentioned this before they used to have complementary breakfast and they stripped it off. At the time also it was not the greatest BF but was something. The hilton homewood suites and some of the other in the hilton chain offers a great hot BF. The price is also lower

Hotel is wonderful, the restaurant is not capable of handling a large group. If booking a large group meal, look outside the hotel. We had 16 families and some of the children waited 2.5 hours for chicken fingers and fries. Pool is small but the kids still had a wonderful time. Beautiful location overlooking the water.

Hi Cathy S, I am glad that you and your group found the hotel to be an ideal location for your swim team to stay at over this past weekend. It is very unfortunate that your experience in our restaurant was not as ideal. You are correct in stating that we are not capable of handling such a large group....

Always happy to stay at the Inn on the Bay. The staff are the best of any hotel I have encountered, and the consistency of this level of service makes it clear that it is part of the culture of the establishment. The rooms are well maintained and always cleaned top to bottom. The beds are just the best. Food...

Whilst in the UK this hotel kept popping up on my Trip adviser, so we thought we would visit whilst on our trip. There is no question this is a very nice hotel, clean, quiet but very busy and with a monopoly as there is nothing around it! Great parking and great location and is obviously well used...but as a...

Hi Lesleyannbarlow4845, I must admit that it is very gratifying to read your review. We are in a unique and beautiful location just far enough from the downtown core to be quiet and peaceful yet close enough to walk if you desire. The biggest benefit is being located on the shoreline of Georgian Bay. Panoramic views and resort style walking...

Staff here are always friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a pleasant stay. Dining room /lounge is always a good bet for a great meal. The view from the dining room is awesome , patio is a great place to spend a summer evening.
