This was a time-share swap for us. It is a very friendly place, and we felt most welcome. There are great views over the harbour and it is only a minute for a delightful stroll in the evening.
Our apartment had 2 bedrooms and was extremely roomy. I don't think I have ever had a larger living area - mind, we are from the UK. It had everything you could want. Only thing I would improve is the comfort of the beds.
Very nice swimming pool and hot tub. Some locals used it, but not many and we enjoyed their chat. Free Internet, free cycles to borrow, and the receptionists are always smiling ! We really enjoyed the surrounding area and recommend it . Youngsters who want a party everynight probably want enjoy it though.

Room tip: If you pay for an extra week from your time share company I would get the largest room you can. They are excellent. The studios didn't seem anywhere near as good.

My family and some friends of ours have been coming to Royal Harbour Resort for approximately 8 years(our friends have been coming here a little longer). We always come here for the weekend that Thornbury has their Old Fashioned Victorian Christmas and for 8 years we have stayed at this same resort.
The Resort is in the perfect location. It is approxiamtely 25 minutes from Collingwood, so you can ski or shop. 1/2 an hour from Owen Sound and walking distance to the heart of Thornbury.
The rooms that we stay in over looks the Georgian Bay. What better view could you ask for while sipping on a hot coffee or enjoying a nice glass of wine? The rooms are either 2 bedroom, plus a sofa bed/full kitchen and 2 full bathroom units or junior type rooms that house a queen bed a sofa bed and a full kitchen and 1 full bathroom. They both over look the harbour. We have stayed in both.
The rooms are very clean. The staff are extremely helpful and very friendly. They make you feel like you are a part of their 'family' and never grumble if you ask for anything.
They have an indoor salt water pool that also over looks the Georgian Bay. The pool is. Ery clean and well maintained.
The only 2 complaints that I would have to make are that their fitness room is very small and they only have one treadmill, ecliptic machine, exercise bike, a set of free weights and weight machines. However, they offer fitness memberships to the local residents of Thornbury, which makes it difficult to get a work out in while vacationing if there are too many people trying to use the equipment at the same time. The other complaint I would have, although minor, is that the building itself, is that there is only 1 area that has WiFi. You have to leave your room to get internet access.
Outside of that, I love the Royal Harbour Rersort and hope to come here even when my kids are much older, as this is a wonderful resort for a family to get together and just relax and enjoy each other's company. My kids are 11, 8 and 6. The pool is definately a high light of their trip, but just sitting and relaxing is a big thing for them, although they always have the choice to leave the resort and go in to town. We are usually told, by them, that they would rather stay at the resort and relax!
I highly recommend this resort, if you are coming up with your family for a mini get away. If you are coming for a long period of time, you will probably want to plan activites with your little ones if they don't enjoy hanging around and 'relaxing' with you.
I have never been here in the summer time, but have been told that there is a lot more to do in the summer months.....I'm not complaining though, because I love it here. The scenery is absoultely gorgeous and the staff are wonderful!

We actually were very lucky and got a selloff timeshare unit for less than $300.00 for a week in the hotel suite.
Very nice ground floor location with a view of the lake. All the hotel suites are first level and have a bedroom with a full kitchen and living space all located in one long room.
The location is across the street from the Pier and they have a small beach across the road.
Thornbury was a very nice small town....About 20 minutes to Collingwood and just a tad longer to Owen Sound.
The building is older and could use some upkeep ...The pool is indoors and not bad.
Fitness center and internet room(not available in rooms) is also there.
The rooms themselves are older but have everything you need....Our bathroom was dated and had some mold around the tub (very tacky) and honestly they could use some help cleaning a little better.
Check-in is 5pm (not before so don't ask) and checkout is 11am (sharp)

The people are very nice and many were owners and loved it there.....We had a great time also.
The 2 bedroom units would have been sweet but they were mostly owners and about 4 floors behind the hotel units....The hotel units had a patio deck on the roof above them so you have a great view and many people hung out there..
Pretty quiet there and we had wonderful sleeps...............All in all.....For the money .GREAT!

Just over 2 hours drive North of Toronto, located on Georgian Bay, the Royal Harbourt Resort in Thornbury, is a pleasant getaway from the bustle of the city. Public beach is in front of resort with nearby bike trails. Walk along banks of Beaver River to the town - with nice Thornbury bakery and bookstore. Fishing sighted along Beaver River. We stayed in a efficiency studio unit that sleeps 4. Resort has free internet in the lounge and reception area. Building and contents are worn and aged, with some upgrades. When it rained hard, we had rain inside the unit over a wide area in the kitchen. Still a nice getaway with beautiful sunrises and sunsets provided it does not rain during your stay!

Room tip: leaking rain in unit 10
