Very pleasantly surprised (for the reasonable price) of the quality/comfort of the room (good bed, ample room, coffee maker, ironing board/iron, hair drier, decent-size soap rather than then usual skinny worthless offer, free local calls/WiFi connection, individual temp controls), handicapped accessible guest and meeting rooms, Coin-op washers/driers for guests, restaurant, take-out pizza service (even with gluten-free and vegetarian options!), pool, fitness center, tennis courts (even with FREE use of racquets/balls!!) shuffleboard, basketball hoop, horseshoe pit, ice machine. Would be a great place for families with the ample grounds for play space and many recreational activities. The super tranquil setting by the river (you can walk out on a dock) and trails for walks are very appealing.

Stayed: September 2017

We stayed mid September. It seemed a sleepy hotel so we went to town... got back and the bar-restaurant was hopping!!! The room was basic, clean and great value. I would recommend as a good solid value that might be the place in season!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and have no complaints.

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.

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.
