Lovely property on the river and the grounds are well tended. The resort is very tired inside and out; needs updating. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Pet friendly. Great seafood chowder in the restaurant and Marie, our server, was lovely. Overall, would return.

Thank you for your recent review. We are currently upgrading our windows in all guestrooms as well as common areas. As well we are replacing the siding on the exterior of the building. We look forward to having you come back to stay with again soon.

Looks like they are renovating the exterior and hopefully the interior is on the roster as well. Very dated rooms. We just needed a place to crash during our road trip to Halifax and the price was right, so it was fine, but given the location, this place could be a real destination.

I stayed here in early September and had an ok experience. Here are my thoughts:

Pros: Staff was friendly, location is beautiful, price was very reasonable

Cons: Although staff was friendly they weren't very knowledgable, they seemed confused on simple requests and were extremely slow in the restaurant.

Speaking of the restaurant, the food was below average. We had the burger and nachos with a few drinks. The food was really dry and not flavourful. Also it took almost 2 hours by the time we got there and left, extremely slow.

Finally I was there for a corporate retreat and the place was very poorly equipped. I called and asked for some tape and a pot of coffee and the front desk were very confused and hesitant to help. The place is starting to show its age as well, and could use some TLC.

Overall it was an ok experience but I wouldn't really recommend this spot. I would like to give a shout out to Marc, he was very friendly and helpful and seemed like the only employee there who had a clue what was going on.

Don't expect first class accomodations! This used to be a Holiday Inn and has been sold to individuals who didn't seem to be interested in renovating the place!

BUT HOLD ON! They're actually updating the outside of the hotel!

Rooms are ok, but beds are great!

Pool is ok but spa is not working: the water is hot but there are no "bubbles" and there is a strange smell...well, I didn't catch anything although I used it!

If you want to eat at the place, there is a restaurant I personally didn't try: you're about 10-15 minutes from the city itself, if you don't mind the extra drive!

Besides that, location is great, by the river, and there is a nice patio where you can have a drink...or two!

We decided to go play Golf at Mactaquac Golf Course and stayed at the Riverview Resort & Conference Centre. Although the hotel is not a luxury hotel, we really enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent and the meals we had at the restaurant were exceptional. There were 7 of us that ordered different things and everyone raved about how good the food was. From steak to seafood to poutine. Excellent.

Room Tip: The regular rooms all had a queen size bed and a small living room area and the suite has a little k...
