Hotel was newly renovated. Nice new lobby and breakfast room. I stayed in room on lower level next to pool and the room smelled musty. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Ran out of toilet tissue was only part of a roll and had to ask for more. Over all would stay there again if could get a...

The staff at this hotel was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was beyond what I was expecting. The room was clean. During a 3 night stay , the cleaning lady did not restock the shampoo and conditioner on the second day. I did get some from the lobby. The mattress on the beds were very soft. Too soft for a...

A weird welcome since the lady at the front desk was outside. (We were late arrival!). She apologized. Comfortable room for both of us, beddings were great. Fluffy pillow. Good breakfast with hot meal: bacon, egg and sausage. Pastry were good. Choice of juice, milk and coffee. (serve yourself). I would recommend even if it was a bit pricey. But...

We were travelling with our 2 grandchildren and stayed at the Best Western Plus in Bowmanville. The room was excellent in that the bedroom (2 queen beds) was separate from the TV/Computer area. The bedroom had a door so the kids could be in the bedroom with a TV on and we could be in the other room.

Do not go to the liberty inn nearby as its beyond skid row. This best western was close to Newcastle, Ontario and the durham region. The staff where well trained to be there for you from making sure your room is to your standards and so forth.

Reviewed 27 June 2016

This hotel looks like it was recently renovated. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast is typical for a Best Western Plus. A few more tables in the breakfast room would be good and the price could be a few dollars cheaper considering the location, but otherwise we were very happy with our stay here.

Location of this hotel is great - right off of the highway! Room was clean and spacious but the view from the third floor was TERRIBLE - Looked out on to the roof of the pool facilities. The fitness room did not have the air conditioning working so it was very warm. Staff was friendly, breakfast was minimal but good....
