The rooms are spacious and all individually themed. Truly a beautiful hotel to check out if you are in Chatham. We also checked out the restaurant...

My wife and I spent overnight in Chatham Jan 4 to attend the visitation and funeral for my brother. After booking the Chardonnay, queen room a few days in advance, we discovered that we needed to ask for an early check in because we needed to be at the funeral home earlier. I called and Nathan said, " no problem"....

I stayed here for a night over the Holidays. This is a very unique hotel and a real asset for Chatham-Kent. Service, room and food were all great! I plan to return and try another themed room. Very highly recommended!

My wife really liked it, it's definitely a unique experience. With the themed rooms and the rambling, disorienting interior structure. I will say it was very well signed and needed to be. For me, however not being quite as much of a romantic, the lack of amenities and the location were a downer. Give me a pool, a hot tub,...

This is a top quality hotel. It is so well decorated that it might as well be a museum. I enjoyed my stay there and this is where I will return every time that I am in town. The restaurant serves very good food too!
