    « Low key & quiet »

    Stayed there for a quick overnight, very clean room, helpful staff. Pretty good free breakfast included. Located about 10 minutes by car to downtown area, decent location. Very quiet hotel, didn't use the pool or hot tub, but it looked good.

    « Great choice »

    A very clean and comfortable hotel. Spacious and very well kept grounds. Friendly staff. Excellent amenities - pool, fitness rom, wifi etc. Complimentary breakfast. A good variety of restaurants near by within walking distance.

    « Great Hotel »

    Great sound proof walls (Hockey Tournament going on) lots of kids and people, but never knew they were there. Friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfasts. Luxgerous and comfortable beds. Beautiful grounds. Plenty of parking and ease to get into building. Allows service animals. Close enough to parts of town, that walking time was easy to attain restaurants close to.. This Inn has it all, hands down. Thanks for the stay.

    « Such a lovely setting! »

    If we are commuting across Canada, we often plan to stay at this Best Western, a good stopover from Ottawa to Toronto and points west. Again, this place is excellent. So good we decided to stay an extra day for the rest you feel in this nature setting. Watch out for the breakfast is good but can be crowded on week-ends and the access from much of the hotel requires going outside and in again. Wear your scarf and mittens if a cold wind bothers you!

    « Beautiful outdoor area - good location »

    I stayed at this Best Western this past summer, I loved that it was a clean and quiet hotel. Great staff, very friendly & accommodating. Looked a little outdated but was told that they were in the process of a renovation. I would definitely stay here again & recommend it.

    « Hot tub! »

    My expectations were low as I was simply looking for a cheap hotel for a Wednesday night. I was pleasantly surprised to find excellent service, clean rooms, complementary breakfast, and a hot tub and pool! The bed was not the most comfortable.

    « One of the Best Western Hotels I have visited »

    I have been to a few Best Western Hotels and this one is definitely a great place to stay. Clean, friendly and helpful. Easy to find in Peterborough, where I was a tourist My stay was great! My room was overlooking the beautiful river, with a balcony in the fall. It had gorgeous views and color.

    « Very good hotel in a good location. Reasonably priced. »

    It is reasonably priced (senior rates) and includes an decent breakfast menu. Staff is welcoming and helpful. Room amenities are of the highest quality. Another excellent stay at a Best western hotel. The hotel grounds are right on the river and try to get a room facing the river and picnic grounds. These rooms also have a balcony. Highly recommended. (Very confusing hotel layout is the only negative I have.)

    « A Family owned Gem »

    This Family owned (for over 40 years) gem is in a wonderful location with grass and a gazebo at the back along the river. It was so relaxing to spend time enjoying nature. You can still hear the traffic going by but the ducks and squirrels are a wonderful distraction. The room was spotless. The bed was a little soft for my liking but still very comfortable. There was a microwave, single cup coffee maker and a small fridge in the room along with a flat screen TV with cable. I did not try the breakfast but went to a Diner next door. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient and the cleaning staff helped me with the door lock without me having to ask. This hotel is a little more expensive than the Comfort Inn I tried on my previous trip to Peterborough but well worth the price. I would definitely stay here on my next trip.

    « very pleasant surprise ..... »

    driven by too many times .....never stopped in always went to choice hotels .... beautiful property very clean and well maintained ... rooms excellent ,....clean, efficent, comfortable nice pool and hot tub area service - excellent ,,...friendly, warm ....welcoming .... will be our hotel next trip for sure ...

    « Great weekend stay »

    Stayed for 2 nights for sister's wedding. The room was impeccably clean, staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast selection was great. The only problem we had was Sunday morning breakfast was so busy there were no tables in the breakfast room. However one of the staff pointed us to a table with comfy chairs in the foyer and we enjoyed our breakfast there.

    « Wedding. »

    The room was exceptional. Great place to stay. Breakfast was included. Couldn't ask for anything better. In Peterborough for a wedding which was approximately ten minutes from hotel. Stayed at this hotel before.

    « Clean, quiet and friendly staff »

    We just stayed here Sept 16-19th and we were very happy with our stay. We were here for a hockey tournament and although our whole team was not staying here, there were plenty of other teams and there was also a wedding party staying so we were fully prepared to not get much sleep. But we were very happy to find that once we closed the door to our room it was virtually sound proof! Hotel is clean and all the staff from the front desk, to the cleaning crew, to the breakfast crew were all so, so friendly. Breakfast was one of the best we have experienced at any of the "breakfast included" hotels. Usually if you show up 15 mins before cut off time almost everything is gone with no offer to replenish the food but not here, they provided fresh top ups right up until closing time so kudos to them for that! If you're heading to Peterborough stay here. I promise you won't be disappointed.

    « Love Best Western Otonabee »

    We had a great stay large room with kitchen facing river. The hot bkfst was nice . The room had a beautiful bathroom with walk in shower and was very clean and well decorated. We will return to this Hotel

    « A bit disappointed this visit. »

    Staff are helpful and very friendly. Our room looked out on the river which was lovely. The beds were comfortable and clean. However, when we first entered the room, there was a very strong odour of a toilet that has not been flushed in some time and the bathroom was not clean around the toilet. We cleaned up the bathroom. The continental breakfast is included in the cost of the room. This is a nice inclusion but choices were very limited. I had hoped at this time of year that there might be some fresh fruit but there was not. We have stayed here before with no complaints and I would stay again but was just a bit disappointed this visit.

    « great location »

    loved the location, picturesque view and value of this property,, would recommend it to anyone as a getaway location, with the river behind the hotel, breakfast to fill your belly and sleep thats right for everyone,,

    « Gorgeous room, setting, and a pleasant reception room. »

    We went to a lovely retirement reception (nice rom, nice food) and stayed over. The room was spotless and cozy, well laid out, with a private deck for two overlooking the river and gazebos and benches to sit and watch the ducks and kayakers. We'll gladly return if we're in town!

    « vacation »

    This hotel exceeded our expectations the rooms were very clean, the front desk staff was very nice. We arrived a day ahead of reservation they accommodated in the honeymoon suite the only room left for that night.

    « Some good, some not so good »

    Only you can decide if this BW fits the bill for you. It is nicely located, close to the highway. There are restaurants within walking distance. Downtown Peterborough is a short drive away as are the many tourist attractions around town. The hotel, like many Best Western locations, is a bizarre collection of smaller buildings that cause you to run indoors and outdoors several times from one end of the property to the other travelling to your room. It is annoying in the winter or when it is raining. The hotel really is old and is in need of work. On Monday I reported that the handle on our closet door was falling off. The front desk said they would send somebody to screw it back on. On Thursday when we checked out it still wasn't done. Our bathroom (Room 106) had been redone completely. The shower is wonderful. It is huge and big enough to have a built-in seat. But, I am guessing that instead of gutting and removing the problem areas in the old bathroom, the new decorating and fixtures were simply installed. A strong musty smell and mould smell lingers even though the bathroom is brand new. It still has that musty old cottage aroma that Canadians know well. Many of the rooms have a patio or balcony overlooking a creek behind the hotel. There is a large lawn with a gazebo and lots of friendly ducks. Breakfast is included. The scrambled eggs just pass muster. When you see the sausages you will pass them by. Everybody else does. I have no idea what they do with three pounds of leftover sausages every day.

    « A Relaxing Stay »

    We were in Peterborough for a wedding and stayed here for two nights. The building is older but the rooms are clean and comfortable. There is an indoor pool and a small gym with limited equipment. There are trails close by for runners and cyclists. Our side of the building has porches with a view of the creek that runs behind the property. It's a very peaceful spot. Buffet breakfast was included with the room,there was enough to choose from. Front desk and all staff were polite and very helpful with information about the surrounding area. If in Peterborough again I would have no problem staying here again.

    « Price low and a 2-star grade »

    Hotel and rooms are old and not modern. But staff service is OK, site is well located and price is being lower and related to the average quality of this hotel. Regarding a lower price, overall value is staying very good. Need to be refurbished very soon as 2016 expectations.

    « Served the purpose »

    Nice room. Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff. Great bed. First time at a great western. Not sure what to expect. The breakfast room could be so much more. But the staff are nice. Low frequency background noise and a fridge caused me some annoyance but no worse than many uk hotels.

    « Great accommodations »

    We stayed two days and the stay was great. The front desk was accommodating, room was large and clean. The housekeeping staff was excellent as we asked for a few things and they delivered on the request. This is rare, in my experience. The hotel is close to restaurants and other amenities.

    « Awesome Hotel »

    The best hotel stay I have ever had. Rooms were clean, beds were very comfortable Pool and hot tub were very clean, always pool towels available. The staff was amazing. Very knowledgeable and friendly We had the free breakfast every morning for the 4 mornings we were there and each time it was delicious and restocked quickly. I will come back here for sure

    « Great location on the river, pleasant and friendly staff »

    We had the pleasure to stay at this establishment recently while attending an event. Very nice room, clean and well appointed. Front desk staff were friendly and welcoming. Nice location set off the road and therefore quiet. Quite a good breakfast, a step above the usual fare. Would certainly go back if next year's event was held there.

    « Great Place »

    This is location and Best Western in Owen Sound Ontario are the 2 nicest Best Westerns that I have stayed at. Not to say that the other ones I have stayed at weren't nice either. But would have to step up to meet the standard that was given to us the 2 locations.

    « A wonderful place to stay »

    We stayed here over the long weekend in August. We had a "tower" room which was large and well equipped. The hot breakfast in the morning was excellent as well. This hotel is very easy to get to and you can walk from here to downtown quite easily. While we were here the music festival was on and it was about a 20 minute walk to the venue, but well worth it. The pool is clean and bigger than most hotel pools these days, the same can be said for the exercise room. Ask for a room on the creek and you won't be disappointed. The grounds are lovely and I can see why people would have their weddings here.

    « Overall a nice stay »

    This is a typical Best Western Plus hotel We had a nice room (king bed with a jacuzzi), but overall I think we paid a little too much for we got! The reason we chose this hotel (in spite of it being almost $100 more that similar hotels in the area) was that we wanted to have a swimming pool and hot breakfast included! The pool was nice, but the breakfast was not good ... :( I am hoping the hotel management does something about the breakfast. I have given them detail a list of what I didnt like about the breakfast! The pool was nice and good size! The front desk staff are nice, welcoming and make you feel good to be there! So overall, we did have a nice stay!

    « Well kept hotel »

    Stayed here twice on 1 night stays in July. Hotel is clean and good location. Amenities are adequate and meet most needs. Nice hotel overall. It is adequate for couples and families. The free breakfast is enjoyable. Hotel backs onto a river which is peaceful and quaint.

    « Always Enjoyable »

    Lovely surroundings, the hotel is on the river and if you have a boat it is very easy to launch from this property. There are many places to explore by boat and car from the hotel. Staff are very friendly and you are always greeted with a smile. The hotel includes a buffet breakfast, has an indoor pool, wifi and very comfy beds!

    « Small tweak could improve accessibility »

    This hotel had so many accessible features such as all automatic doors and elevators. The accessible room was large and had plenty of room to move the wheelchair around. The bathroom was "somewhat" accessible. It had raised toilet and bars, lowered sink with ability to roll the wheelchair under - however, the shower was not a roll-in. To be fair this was fully explained to me when I booked. It would be suitable for someone who could stand in the shower. We were pleased with the room (the bed was super comfy) and service, but it would be so easy to replace the bottom of the shower with a roll in floor and bench to make it completely accessible to a wheelchair user. Hopefully the management will consider this improvement.

    « Beautiful riverfront setting, but the hotel needs some "sprucing up" »

    This hotel has nice clean rooms, and the staff are exceptional, especially at check-in. Our room was on the river side, and offered a nice view. It was somewhat crowded, but had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The breakfast buffet had a lot of variety, and real crockery. The food was typical Sysco, almost identical to Holiday Inn's breakfast. The hot tub and pool were nice. Be sure to get your towels at the front desk, they are not available poolside. For the information of older or infirm tourists, the second floor is not accessible by elevator. Overall, this hotel is decent value for money, and was quiet in the evenings.

    « Overnight stay »

    We had expected a standard room. (1 or 2 beds, fridge, microwave etc.) What we got a was a suite, full kitchenette, 2 rooms, 2 TV's, and more. Our thoughts were: It is to bad this was only an overnight stay as it would have made a great place to stay for a week as we did not have time to use the pool, fitness room etc..

    « Booked online..... Ready and waiting »

    Clean room. Wonderful staff. We booked our room online and got in a little later then we were thinking we would be. They had everything ready and we did not have to wait at all. Breakfast was fantastic I would recommend this Beat Western for sure to anyone..... Business or please. Great stay.

    « Best western hotel Peterborough, Ontario. »

    My wife and I stayed her 1night so that we could go to a funeral of a friend and then drive home the next day. The hotel is very nice and the room was very neat and tidy and nicely appointed.,on the ground floor, overlooking a river and small playground. The breakfast was nice as well. as we travel a great deal we are used to staying in motel/hotels, and most seem to be over priced for a short stay . This cost more then it should.

    « Exceptional lodgings »

    Stayed one night on way to visiting Kawartha's at friends and found it to be a great hotel with friendly staff, great location and really nice grounds on river. One guest even boated in. This nwill be hotel of choice next time in Peterborough area.


    During a recent "Adventure" as our daughter calls them, we found ourselves in Peterborough, Ontario. Having decided at the last moment to "Head Out" down the road without reservations anywhere, when we decided to stop in Peterborough area our first action was to open up the "Best Western" App on the i-Pad and check for availability nearby, on discovering a vacancy at the Best Western Otonabee Inn,we immediatly booked for Saturday night. On our arrival, when I went to check in at the front desk I was politely informed that there was no reservation in my name for that evening... after producing our confirmation number we discovered that by accident we had booked the Sept 24 night instead of the Sept 23... The staff were wonderful and helpful, after a few minutes, checking all reservations, they were able to put us into a differnt room for the evening and then pointed us in the direction for a FANTASTIC Dinner Buffet Restaurant right next door... We most certainly will be coming back :) :) :)

    « Wonderful mid week stay »

    We recently stayed at this hotel and had a fabulous time. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the river and we had a great view. The beds were soft and sheets were great quality and cotton-soft. Just floated away to sleep. Room has a fridge (with no freezer) and microwave and a larger flat screen TV. Everything was clean and comfortable. Bathroom has all the amenities and some good quality soaps and shampoos, along with bathtub grab rails. There is a back door to the room that opens to the river. Outside there is a covered space with picnic tables and also each room has a couple of outdoor chairs to enjoy the view. At breakfast the next morning (also included) there was the usual cold cereals, bread and pastries, hot food but amazingly enough they had some gluten-free cold cereal and bread. I am so used to having to bring this for myself that I was amazed. There were a couple of small things to be corrected in the room, but it was promptly taken care of to our complete satisfaction. We highly recommend this property and will be staying there again soon!

    « Wonderful riverside setting »

    The hotel is good, though the breakfast was ordinary. Staff was very friendly and capable. The setting in the curve of the river, with sit-out patio of balcony from the original wing makes the hotel an oasis -- ducks in the evening, boards and kayaks floating by, a picturesque house across the bay but no other buildings to interrupt the view. We used the hot tub and salt water pool, which were small but gave us the relaxation and exercise we needed. Nice to have changing rooms available by the pool with good showers where you could strip and wash thoroughly. Can access pool beside lobby without going into it, though towels are kept at side of lobby desk. Self-serve breakfast was adequate but far from gourmet, with sausages and egg patties of unknown heritage, but the other items seemed fine. The room was spacious, with two double beds, two comfy chairs and a good desk chair, back door onto a semi-private patio. I found the bed a bit high for someone of my height (5'3"), but once I found where the mattress wanted me to sleep I slept well. Easy to get into town for a wide variety of interesting restaurants and main street shopping.

    « Stay was ok »

    Nothing to complain about ... Only stayed one nite I would be ok returning for another nite !!! It was nice overlooking the river behind the hotel !!! Omg i can not say anymore about the hotel i spent one nite in ...i slept there thats it !!! The room was overall comfy

    « Friendly and comfortable »

    Would definitely stay here again. The staff were so friendly they really made an impact. Rooms were comfortable and it was very convenient location. A great choice if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Peterborough.

    « Winter Stay »

    Located along the river, was given a room beside the entrance at the back at ground level so that was not great. The rooms are very basic for a BW Plus, the facility is very dated though location was good. Beds were mediocre, didn't check out the rest of the building.

    « Great family hotel in a peaceful, park-like setting. »

    Easy to get to, yet quiet and serene. Pleasant breakfast room, lovely pool, comfortable beds. In the summer I prefer the rooms overlooking the river; in winter rooms in the front building are more convenient as you don't have to go outside (briefly) to get to the pool and the hot tub. The grounds are very well kept and it's a pleasure to walk along the small river. Customer service is unfailingly excellent. Thank you, Otonabee, for another great stay.

    « Best hotel in Peterborough »

    Everyone at the hotel works really hard to ensure that it maintains its excellent reputation. The pool and jacuzzi are amazing. Beautiful 'backyard' along the river, perfect for a stroll or just sitting under the gazebo to enjoy the tranquil view. I can't do enough to praise this hotel, its facilities, and its staff. My teaching colleagues were staying at hotels all over the downtown, and when we compared notes during our course, nothing came close to the whole package that you get at this Best Western Plus. Great breakfast variety and service too.

    « wrong room »

    second day of our 2 night stay we were upgraded from a 2 bed double size bed to a king size bed which really pleased both my Wife and I . Thanks to your Staff for their consideration in helping us with this mix up Wes and Sandra Botham

    « The river is lovely and very relaxing »

    I have not been to this building, but i lived close to the river and loved it. the river is very relaxing and peterborough is a very beautiful place. thats why i recommend vising this place and staying in the Inn because it is close to the river and other beautiful sites of peterborough

    « Pleasant Clean Hotel »

    We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and will return again. The breakfast area has large windows open to the Otonabee River and we enjoyed the patio seating this time. Although we did not use the pool and hot tub, our sons enjoyed the hot tub to relax after attending a wedding. The hours of use are reasonable so that you can use it even if you have to be out for part of the evening, as we were. The prices are a little higher than some other hotels in the area, but is worth it to know you have a good place and food to come "home" to. Best breakfast we've ever had in any hotel in our travels recently.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    From check-in to check-out, this property surprised us all. Our room backed onto the riverfront and had a nice private patio. The room was spacious and very quiet. The bathtub and toilet was in a separate section from the sink area. That was perfect as it allowed the ladies to do their makeup while someone else used the shower. The water pressure was wonderful and had the hottest water ever encountered out of all our hotel experiences! We really enjoyed our stay and now know why this property is rated #1!!

    « Love, Love, Love this Hotel! »

    We stayed here on Canada Day and we were thrilled with our room, it was beautiful and we had a deck overlooking the river, really lovely. We had a King suite , instead of a pullout couch, which I was hoping for we had a chaise lounge, not big enough to sleep on, and they do not offer roll away beds, so left us in a kind of tight spot. Otherwise everything was wonderful, loved the Jacuzzi tub and the breakfast was better than most hotels. I will definitely stay here again! Thanks to Jeremy and his staff , for a super visit!

    « Wonderful few days away »

    Just returned from a two night getaway to while visiting friends. The four of us had two lovely queen size beds, tons of pillows and blankets to choose from. Comfortable beds, large enough room for the four of us, very clean and working air conditioner. Breakfast provided, and lots of options avaiable, egg, sausage, pancakes, toast, muffins, cereal, coffee, juice, yogurt, fruit. You shouldn't go hungry, considering what options you would have at home to choose from, and you don't have to cook or clean up, makes this mom happy. Check in and out was quick, the staff are constantly saying hello, or welcome, how is your day, very friendly. The grounds are beautiful, take a walk around and see, well groomed and taken care of. Ample parking. My children used the pool, nice area, and warm, and open til 11 pm which is a nice treat. Easy to find, and close to everything around. We will definately visit again.

    « Great stay »

    Enjoyed a 1 night stay at this hotel during Canada Day long weekend. Made the choice to stay in one of the Riverside rooms and must say that it was a great choice. The room was large, very clean with a great view of the river. Hotel wasn't at capacity but still occupied by a number of guests and found it to be very quiet. Hotel is in a great location, not too far from Restaurants & shopping. Would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    « Canada Day stay »

    This is a great hotel! I will stay here again next time. The service was good. The beds were comfortable, lots of pillows! It's a great location and close to downtown. My wife and I walked from this location to George Street and the many parks and lock locations. The breakfast was excellent which was included as part of our stay.

    « Relaxing »

    I just spent 2 lovely nights at this BW. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. I arrived about 3 hours before the regular check in time expecting not being able to check in but just leave my bag. Well there was no problem at all my room was ready and was sent on my way. It was so quiet, that I actually managed to sleep in and then had a leisurely breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, toast, coffee and juice, all included in the price of my room. With family living in Peterborough I will definitely be staying here again.

    « Great Hotel »

    When we are visiting Peterborough we make it a point to stay at this Hotel. It is very clean and well kept place.The staff are most helpful and friendly.It is conveniently located to all shopping and fine restaurants.

    « Fun weekend »

    This was our second stay at the hotel and found it a friendly place to stay. We used the pool area and found it clean and enjoyable. The breakfast was a step up from many continental breakfast at many Canadian hotels, it was clean, great selection of food, no shortage of dishes or cutlery. Very impressed.

    « Place to stay »

    We stayed 3 nights. This hotel knows how to look after their guests. They are very friendly and accommodating. The pool is great The outside grounds are well cared for. There are even rooms facing the water. There was a wedding group staying at the hotel and you didn't even know it. The hotel and rooms are very clean. Nice and relaxing.

    « Excellent service/nice rooms! »

    The staff here is excellent! So friendly & helpful and very tolerant of multiple questions and requests! We had a memorial for a lovely friend who visited there often and to have the hotel embrace our celebration of her life was the icing on the cake. Thank you for helping to make this such a special time for the friends and especially the family. Frances was with us in spirit!

    « Perfect! »

    Cannot say enough about this location. We are currently in the family suite, which makes you feel like you are at home. Living room area, fireplace, 2 sofas/pullouts, kitchenette, large bedroom, king bed. Very comfortable and clean. Thank you!

    « Beautiful Hotel in Peterborough, ON »

    We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this hotel. The room is lovely. The bed very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and kind. The grounds are spectacular. This Best western has been owned and operated by the same family for 44 years. They obviously love doing this and the staff obviously love working there. I highly recommend staying there over any other hotels in the area. And we have stayed at others.

    « Lovely Location, Friendly Staff »

    Booked a night here based on previous reviews. Despite our stay being on the evening of Victoria Day we were amazed to have almost the whole hotel to ourselves and never saw another guest. The place is huge and has obviously had wings added over the years. Our room was ground floor with doors to a small patio where we could sit overlooking the river. The grounds were lovely and it was a beautiful and peaceful location. Perhaps a little tired in places our room smelt slightly smokey but was clean and comfortable. Had hoped to eat at a steak restaurant within easy walking distance but when we got there it and all the other restaurants were closed! Ended up having to drive into Rochester to find somewhere open on the holiday Monday evening. Excellent breakfast in the morning with outside seating options, one of the best breakfasts we had in hotels on our trip. Staff helpful and friendly. Enjoyed our stay and being able to sit outside and enjoy the river. Walked to the lift lock and through the lovely parks nearby. Would not choose to have the room we were given again - 101- as the corridor door banged every time it was used, you could hear the ice machine and it was right next to the breakfast room. Lovely hotel, a little different from the usual chain offerings.

    « We enjoyed our stay »

    In the room - we had to go around and plug everything in - lamps etc. as they were all unplugged from the wall. The pool was too cold for me...but then I like it almost warm or I won't get in. The hot tub was quite small....and it was very very hot. Otherwise a very enjoyable and quiet stay.

    « Exactly what you would expect »

    Got a suite for wife, myself and daughter for University grad. Room is fine, and nice view over the river. Nice balcony to enjoy a drink if the weather cooperates. Front desk is friendly and helpful. Nice little pool and food at breakfast is adequate. Not fancy but fine. While relatively clean the hotel could use a good scubbing and a new coat of paint but overall good value and nothing wrong.

    « Clean, Friendly and Efficient »

    Has what you need, easy access to downtown, free parking and internet. Beautiful balcony opens onto the river. Good breakfast selection. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Pool and hot tub are small but clean.

    « Excellent accomodations, no problems in and out. »

    The staff was very good and helpful. Having forgot a luggage in the room on departure, I phoned on arrival home, and was told not to worry it will be forwarded to arrived via mail the next day. Can't get better than that...congratulation to the staff who were very understanding.

    « Great Overnight Stay! »

    We were in Peterborough for a dance competition and booked here for a one night stay. When I called in to book my reservation, the front desk staff was efficient and friendly. We booked a room with two queen beds as it was that was the only regular room still available. I cringed when I was told it was in the middle of a block of room for a soccer tournament, but it turned out it was not a tournament for younger kids as I had imagined. The room was a nice size, very clean and pleasant. I was very impressed with how quiet our floor was even though the hotel was fully booked. The bed was comfortable and the adjustable ac worked great. It was nice to have both a fridge as well as a microwave. We got a swim in at the pool and the water was perfect - very comfortable temp to swim in. We snuck in for the last bits of the breakfast buffet as my daughter had had a headache that morning so we had a later start than planned, but the staff did not grumble even as we toasted bagels and ate some cereal while they were clearing up the rest and prepping the room. It was a bit far from the venue, but the drive there and back was straight forward and I would not hesitate to book here for next year. The only very minor negative was that there was a noticeable hum of machinery during the night that kept me up for a bit. Not sure if it was from the hotel itself or a nearby business. The night staff was helpful in giving change for the vending machine and the morning staff were pleasant and quick in checking me out.

    « One night stay wish it was longer »

    Great customer service on the phone and in person. Location is beautiful and convenient to so many places. You Can eat your free, tasty, continental buffet breakfast outside on the patio overlooking the water. The room was quite lovely and very clean. We forgot our swimsuits but the pool and hot tub looked great. Fantastic place. I would definitely stay there again. Here is my boyfriend enjoying his morning coffee by the water.

    « Great Hotel »

    The room was clean and well stocked. The beds comfortable. The pool was a good temperature without tons of chlorine. The breakfast was good and the ladies were working hard to keep everything stocked up even though it was getting near the end of the breakfast time. Overall this was a very good experience.

    « Not bad but please clean the pool area. »

    Spent just one night. Staff very friendly and room average. The pool floor and inside the hot tub pretty dirty. Sitting inside the hot tub you could see clear ring of brown film around the tub. Decided to get out as soon as I saw that. Doesn't take much to clean things so makes me wonder where else they are cutting corners.

    « Great Hotel - with pool and hot tub »

    Great, friendly service at check-in, clean room and good location. This was a family visit and this hotel had great amenities for the kids with pool and hot tub inside the hotel. Best hotel value in Peterborough.

    « Manager/Owner is nasty Allen [--]..... Check the sheets »

    I was attending a wedding, spent 3 nights at the hotel. Room appeared nice on the river 2 queen beds I was alone so I only had need for one bed. The 3rd night I had my mother-in-law stay with me. At age 92 she slept on a chair with a blanket and pillow, the next morning when clearing out the room I found I was missing a cover to one of the decoration boxes. I pulled back the sheets and blanket to see if it was there, and much to my disgust I found dried blood on the sheets. I addressed the issue with the assistant manager who was a wonderful man he quickly took the sheets to housecleaning. I was not satisfied that I was never contacted by the manager/owner so I called him. Well I was called a liar?.. which doesn't sit well with me. As you can clearly see it has taken me some time to review this hotel, it has been haunting me? I do have pictures as proof but I will not post them they are too disgusting. Which is to bad, the staff are wonderful to deal with, I stayed there many times before my husband passed away.

    « Best Hotel in PTBR »

    This is the best hotel in the area. Staff are very helpful. Pool and area are clear and well cared for. Cute mini fitness centre.The decor is a bit beige but the building is well sound proofed so you always get a great sleep. ,The breakfast is so so, typical sausage eggs toast, not much section but its always clean and stocked. BW ontonabee is miles above all other hotels.

    « Great spot in Peterborough! »

    My husband and I stayed over for the first time in Peterborough this past week and based on rates and positive reviews on Trip Advisor we chose to stay at the Best Western Otonabee Inn. It's a nice location with lovely grounds and easy to find. Our room was very comfortable and we had a view of the Otonabee River out our window. There are a lot of really nice bird houses fashioned to trees on the grounds and nice walking paths and benches to sit at and gaze at the view. The Internet worked great and the room had a small fridge and also a microwave which was quite handy. Small coffee pot for having our first cup in the morning before heading to the free breakfast which was standard fare. Lovely little outside deck to sit at off the breakfast room in warmer weather. We also took advantage of their indoor pool and hot tub. A great way to refresh after a day spent driving in the car. Nice change rooms, great spot. Our room was nice and quiet as well. Absolutely no traffic noise. We did the express checkout which worked great until I realized I'd forgotten to clean out the fridge. Ran back to the front desk where they made me another 'key' and I was in and out again in a second. Great personable service. We'd stay here again in a second.

    « Excellent service, excellent room »

    James served us at the front desk, super nice gentleman and very helpful. He recommended places to eat at and was overall very very nice. Room was lovely, food the next morning was some of the best we have had, they made an extra effort to make small cheese omelets which kept the eggs from drying out, very tasty. Overall selection was great for breakfast.

    « Incredible River View »

    We were greeted by a brooding duck in the planter outside our rooms, then a beaver out back, then a group of ducks. The view of the river and grassy land was amazing. Staff was really great, especially when we had to stay an extra night due to car trouble.

    « Nice clean hotel with pool/hot-tub and solid breakfast »

    Stayed only one night but room was spacious and clean, and everything worked. Hot water in shower is HOT so be careful. Bed was comfortable. We got seniors rate which was also CAA automobile rate, which was average priced. It was on main road with easy driving access to the downtown (five minutes). Peterborough has a nice old downtown with lots of bars/restaurants, a city worth visiting.

    « Quiet and Comfortable »

    We were attending a country wedding with very few options near the event location. Chose this hotel two hours drive away and are very happy with our choice for the two nights we needed. Would definitely stay again if the need arises.

    « Great for a group!! »

    Stayed in a 2 queen room for 4 nights with three others while curling in Peterborough. The room was a great size (not cramped even with four people and associated luggage) with a cute little balcony overlooking the river. The TV was larger than I've seen in most hotels, and the bathroom was set up in a way that the sink was separate from the toilet/shower, which was very helpful with four of us trying to get ready all at once. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful/accommodating. The breakfast area could get a bit cramped when busy but the selection/quality of food was fine. We only ran into a couple of issues-- we were on the second floor of one of the wings and there didn't seem to be an elevator anywhere close (not a big deal for us but was a bit of a nuisance with suitcases and anyone with difficulty getting up/down stairs would need to be on the first floor). The room was also tended to get quite warm at night-- I think we ended up trying to turn on the A/C one night even though it was March. Other than that, though, we had a great time and I would consider staying here again if I was ever back in the area.

    « Travel for work »

    This week I was travelling for business, I usually stay at Best Westerns when I travel, so I booked for both my stays in North Bay and Peterborough. I wrote my review on the North Bay one already, and would not return. This one in Peterborough however was much better. Friendly staff, clean and spacious room. The decor is outdated, but at least it was clean. Good area, close to shopping/restaurants. I will return here.

    « Best Western Otonabee »

    This is a terrific BW. The staff members were so helpful and polite. The room was very, very clean and spacious. And the bed - it was very, very comfortable, which is very hard to find in a hotel or motel setting. Sharon W, Victoria, BC

    « Good value and great location »

    First stay here. Close to downtown (with excellent directions provided by staff) and also to Hwy 7 road to Ottawa. Also quick and comprehensive directions. Lovely setting next to the river and we were given a river view room. Reception responded quickly and efficiently to mend lobby computer (to print boarding pass) and also to sorting out BW travel coupons which I had been provided. This property definitely on my list for next visit to Guelph

    Off season great value. Better than average bed. Depend on Netflix and wi-fi for entertainment with no movie options on TV. Handy having good breakfast before leaving. Furniture showing some wear, but comfy.

    « Very clean »

    Didn't have a reservation and had issues with my deposit. Lady at the desk was helpful, offering suggestions and ideas to help us get a room so we weren't stranded. Finally got our room and was very impressed with the cleanliness. Pool was warm and clean, breakfast was great (NOTE: you have to go outside across to another building for the breakfast. Don't forget a jacket if it's cold!) Only complaint was the thin blankets- I woke up quite cold and was too tired to get up and figure out how to turn on the heat.

    « Awesome as Always »

    I love this hotel, I always have a pleasant stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, breakfast is tasty and the pool is so much fun. I have been several times and never a problem! Will definitely visit again.

    « Best Best Western we have stayed in »

    This was an excellent facility! The staff were so friendly both at the desk and at the breakfast. So impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel. Rooms very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good and a variety of hot and cold foods as well as cereals and fruits. Highly recommendable.

    « A stay at the Otonabee Inn »

    While the staff was very good it was an average hotel at an okay price. The rooms were functional, if a little dated. Considering the hotel's location in Canada, why must one go outside to get to the breakfast room?

    « Good location! »

    stayed here for a night on our way to Ottawa. Very clean and spacious room, nothing fancy! breakfast was rather plain but i suppose we cannot really expect for something more than what we pay. There's a pool but did not fancy going in. It looks ok from the outside. There are good places to eat nearby like the red lobster! Very friendly staff.

    « Nice place to stay »

    We followed our London Knights on a recent road trip and stayed at this Best Western. Jeremy, the front desk manager, was friendly and welcoming. He chatted with us about our hockey team and reminisced about his time in London. The breakfast was good with a variety of options. Our room was clean and tidy. We would stay again if in the area. Go Knights Go! :)

    « Great location & amenities for a good price »

    I always stay at this hotel when I come to Peterborough. It is close to the highway, not far from town. It is a nice quiet location with a full breakfast overlooking the river. The swimming pool and whilrpool are a bonus. The only downside is the 2 building layout without elevator access to all rooms - you need to specify.

    « Mentor romance too »

    Room beautiful, gorgeous site on the river side. Staff knowledgable, friendly and respectful. Prompt service, easy, helpful staff, check in and out a breeze. Everything clean and neat. Free breakfast great and quite satisfying. This place is a gem, quiet and away from downtown which is still walking distance if you really feel the need to venture downtown

    « Worth the money! »

    We booked last minute and the price was very reasonable! The room had two double beds plus a pull out couch. Everything was clean and there were lots of towels. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise - eggs were fluffy and the sausage was delicious! We will be back.

    « My "Go To" Place to stay »

    Have stayed a few times here over the winter for business. Clean, friendly hotel, reasonably priced. Adequate workout room for the business traveler. Nice complimentary breakfast buffet. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Check in and check out were fast and accurate. During one of my stays, at morning check out, staff member Jeremy swiftly looked after my bill all while professionally dealing with an irate telephone call from a lady who wondered why she couldn't use Air Miles for part of her bill. A true professional

    « Very Good...... »

    Ok, found another Best Western that is pretty darn good... Check in was a pleasure, the staff was attentive and polite..... requested a change in my room from what I had problem... Breakfast bar, a tad on the minimal side...but still OK.. Overall, clean rooms, clean lobby, lots of parking...and easy access to downtown Peterboro...

    « Our first Hotel stay in Peterborough »

    Since we have family in Peterborough we haven't needed to find accommodation when we visit, but there were too many people at the family 'inn'. I like Best Western Hotels so that is what we chose. Even though the hotel was crammed with hockey tournament families, our stay was comfortable and quiet. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. There is also a pool which we didn't have time to use.

    « Weekend Stay »

    I had the pleasure this past weekend staying with a friend at the Best Western on Lansdowne. From the moment we arrived, the front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was a suite and we had a fireplace as well as a balcony which looked over the river. The cleaning staff was awesome. The room was comfortable, clean and I would recommend staying there to anyone. Morning breakfast was awesome, with an assortment of eggs, sausage, pancakes, cereal, bagels, toast, yogurts, etc. and fresh fruit, tea, coffee and juices. Excellent! The ONLY negative thing I would have to report was there was a hockey tournament going on in the City and there were a number of younger players (probably around the age of 9-11 years of age) that found it amusing to be running up and down the hallways well after 1:00am and pushing each other on a chair. The front desk was notified and again they had to be advised to keep it quiet Saturday evening. It`s not the children`s fault so much as the parents that were to have been monitoring them. We are no strangers to the hockey tournaments and appreciate that the kids are excited but after 1:00 a.m. it`s a bit much, especially for those guests who have nothing to do with the tournament.

    « Good Stay »

    Clean room, good staff. Parking available close to all rooms to help with luggage. Free breakfast was excellent. Nice pool kept clean as well. Hot tub dated and jets are too. Location is excellent as it is close to PMC.

    « Business Stay »

    Everything was great from check in to check out! Breakfast was good and the comfort of the bed was awesome. The room was clean. Overall I will go back for sure. Everything was perfect. Customer service help me out to go to the steak house.

    « Do not reconize Best western Reward program Status online reservation do not match what is available »

    I visited a couple of time this Hotel I never got upgraded with my best Western reward program. I know it is at the discretion of the establishment not to upgrade so if your looking to get best western reward status recognition from this best western you won't but this is not what is worrying me ,I ask front desk if the had a king suite available and he said no, I called best western reservation desk they said that yes they have one available plus on the best western site there was one available also on different reservation site a king suite was available , I said this to the front desk that there was some suite available on internet he said no !!!(rude fellow)so I ask what appends if some on reserve online he said that they would have no room for them, so if you reserve online they will not have the room you reserve because they are not in line with internet ,be inform or they just lie to me and this is even worst. so be careful wen reserving on line what they offer is not what they have.

    « a good overall experience »

    Very friendly and efficient staff. Continental breakfast was high above standard. Very good! Aquatic centre pools/hot tub needed water balanced and chemical attention. Cloudy water and an odor due to low chlorine levels and acidity. Easily fixed so it is not a reason not to stay here.

    « Jacuzzi suite »

    Nice clean with a sitting room and a separate bedroom with large jacuzzi tube and fireplace.Hard to tell what rooms have what on internet. We stayed in 121 with a walkout over looking the river.Free breakfast eggs,sausage,toast,muffins and fresh fruit

    « Our go to hotel in Peterborough »

    I have stayed with this location twice now this month. Both stays have been fantastic. The first I was solo and was greeted by amazing front desk staff who managed all the special accommodations perfectly and with ease. Amy in sales has been amazing at handling our unique situation and helping to make sure I felt that all my needs were taken care of. My second stay was with my two children, one who is special needs, and my mother. We were made aware that it would be a full house as there was a hockey tournement and several teams were staying at the hotel. You would have never had known that there was a team staying! No noise, no crowded pool or crowded breakfast on the Sunday morning. I have to more stays booked in the next three weeks and I know that its like a home away from home. Clean, comfortable and well looked after property. Amazing staff at all times of the day. The room was spotless - even at early check in. Relaxing atmosphere. A great complimentary breakfast and it was maybe 10 steps from the main building. Even on the coldest morning it was no big deal.

    « 3 Star Hotel, 4 Star Service »

    Stayed at this hotel on New Years Eve. We had a queen suite at an amazing value price. Where are you going to get a room like that for $120? Nowhere. It wasn't all perfect though. The cleaning staff had not done a great job and I noticed the table was not cleaned. I was a bit disappointed, but come on.. $120. You have to consider the cost. This isn't the Chateau Laurier, right? Did I spend $400 a night? No. I had called the front desk about an unrelated issue (the battery in the thermostat was flashing and I am weirdo about temperature control when I sleep). "Jeremy" came up immediately and replaced the battery. He asked about the room and I mentioned, reluctantly, about the table having a bit of debris. Not only did he profusely apologize, he ran out and grabbed some cleaners and then personally, thoroughly, cleaned the table. In his suit. His SUIT. That's right. He didn't tell me he would send someone around eventually to look at it he just took ownership and resolved the issue right there on the spot. That is real customer service. That is why I am rating this 3 star hotel a 4. He made me feel like I was an important customer even though I was dropping a meager amount of money. Well done sir and thank you. Our New Years Eve was very enjoyable.

    « Great Bed »

    Great place to stay and I always sleep when I stay at Best Western - amazing bed. Staff is top notch, they always go above and beyond for your. Room itself is comfortable and very clean. Internet is excellent. Love where it is located on Lansdowne close to Mark's Finer Diner which I like their food too. I would highly recommend a stay at Best Western.

    « Excellent staff and accomadations »

    Staff is very friendly and helpful, knows the local amenities and attractions. room was spotless and very comfortable and relaxing. Overall the experience as a whole was terrific. Everything and more from staff and room, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely like to stay there during summer months as i had a balcony with river view and would like to see in warmer weather.

    « Came back here for a stop over night »

    Definitely a great choice for a go back to! Patio doors to a deck - we asked for bottom floor because your private deck leads out to the grounds, gazebos and did I mention the water way complete with ducks and geese! Rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the deep soaker tub and awesome shower head! Great nights stay!

    « Visited the locks while we were there as well as cruised the surrounding area. Good place for old car cruises »

    We had our old car group stay here for a weekend. Rooms very clean, and look out onto a river. Nice porch to sit and socialize. Food was good as well as service was excellent. Lots of room for our dinner, which was a buffet. Everyone totally enjoyed. I even recommended it to friends when we got home. Nice area.

    « Great hotel for our team trip .. »

    A great time in Peterborough -- close to the tournament location in Millbrook, great service -- they accommodated our need for a slightly earlier breakfast, meaning the boys got to eat! Thanks -- we'll be back.

    « Great night away »

    Enjoyed our stay from start to finish. The property is beautiful along the river and very clean. Location is convenient to shopping and restaurants. Our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Stayed on 2nd floor on the river side of the building.

    « Great Hotel Experience »

    I always stay at the Best Western Otonabee Inn when visiting Peterborough for work or leisure. The hotel staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast is fantastic and it seems to be close to all the places we need to go. Great place all around.

    « It had a fireplace ! »

    We were only here for one night as we were in transit. This room was spacious with fireplace, chair, sofa, fridge, coffee making machine and had a river view. We wished we could have stayed longer. Breakfast which consisted of eggs, French toast, pastries toast & bagels was included . Coffee was OK. Definitely recommend this place.

    « We appreciated the excellent service! »

    We were here twice in the last month and both times had excellent service from the front desk. Really nice of them to upgrade our rooms to avoid being in the heart of the hockey tournament bookings. King room on the 4th floor was lovely. Decent breakfast and very accommodating for gluten free food. Pool was a hit with the kids, and water was actually pretty warm which was nice.

    « Clean, Comfortable spot. »

    We were in Peterborough for a wedding and stayed at the Best Western. It has good basic accommodation with decent buffet breakfast. We were in the annex upstairs. If mobility is an issue be aware there is no elevator. Our room was quite large and had a balcony overlooking the river. Unfortunately we were quite busy and didn't have time to use it. Bathroom was basic but clean and overall the property seemed well maintained. Couple of good restaurants within walking distance. Would stay here again when in the area for short trip.

    « Very clean room with friendly staff »

    The rooms are always clean, which is what is most important for me. The pillows leave something to be desired, even though a range of pillows are provided (I just couldn't find one that worked for me). The staff is very helpful and friendly, and seem genuinely happy to see me each time I stay at this hotel on business.

    « Dependable. hindsight a Super 8 or Motel 6 would have sufficed »

    Happened to be in the area, that I have zero local knowledge of, unexpectedly. Popped into a McDonalds re 20mins wifi to google hotel/motel options. I was wishing to keep $ cost 'reasonably' low without hitting a 'cockroach' motel category. At $112 (CAA/AAA rate!) plus HST/tax, considering it's Peterborough not major city, it was so-so. To clarify, there are rooms in the 'main' building that i've no idea about re feedback. I, however, was in a smallish size room, 2nd floor, in one of the annexes. No elevator (not an issue for me but would've been handy re luggage from car). The entrances to the annex and the general 'first impression' of the corridors weren't too bad but for a BEST WESTERN PLUS, to me, were dated. Felt like a roadside independent motel. Room comfortable clean etc - but, and this bugs me when one pays $125 plus for accommodation - there wasn't an armchair or recliner or love-seat to relax in to watch TV or chill while on laptop. This, obviously, could be different in other rooms. Yes, there were the standard issue small table with couple of 'office / dining room' type chairs. Staff at check in and out - all good. Wifi - reliable If you're just just needing somewhere to flop etc then I'd suggest taking the time to do a little more research and get a decent motel. Meaning...i gather this hotel doesn't have a's not necessarily any more close to 'restaurant / amenities / attractions' than other options etc.

    « Room/Facility Cleanliness »

    Exceptional. Recommend highly. We felt the condition of all public areas was very clean and tidy. Also, bathroom cleanliness was top notch. By all appearances the exterior grounds showed pride of management and all staff.

    « Great pace to lay down your tired head. »

    Not exactly a hotel where one would want to spend a vacation but a perfectly functional hotel when visiting someone in town or coming for business. Generous parking, a comfortable room and a very decent breakfast. We have stayed here before and it will certainly be our first chic on our next trip to Peterborough.

    « Terribly disappointed - expected so much more! »

    This hotel did not meet my expectations at all. I had booked months in advance and liked what I saw. I need a pool and a hot tub. However I was met with people from the area who use the pool as well - I wanted peace and quiet - and the hot tub is the size of my bathtub! And there was hair in it!!!!! The place had no elevator. We had to leave the the main building to get to our building- by the outside! And same for the pool and then another building for the restaurant which I did not go to because I was not interested in walking all over - in and out! No no no never again!

    « Beautifully located! »

    Stayed at this hotel near the end of September for a wedding weekend. Room was spacious and spotless. The double beds were incredibly comfortable and I slept very well (which I always have trouble with in a strange bed!). Inside room was a patio door which opens up to a private deck overlooking the river that flows beside the property. Fed ducks from my deck! The young gentleman working Night Audit was very friendly and helpful as were all the staff that we encountered. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

    « Decent hotel in a beautiful spot. »

    The setting couldn't be better. Situated on the river with a nice little walking trail it's beautiful. The hotel on the other hand is just ok. The "plus" part must refer more to the land than the hotel. Don't get me wrong the hotel isn't bad but it's just a basic hotel. Our room was clean and in good shape. The hotel itself is a bit dated and the same was true for the room. Although dated everything was maintained well and was in working order. The breakfast is nothing special basic offerings but less impressive than other Best Western Plus I've stayed at. Overall it's not a bad place. You'll get a clean comfortable room. If you are fortunate to have enough time to explore the grounds or have a room with a view that's a bonus.

    « A Great Stay While In Peterbprough »

    The Best Western Otonabee Inn has everything (...and more) I need while staying in Peterborough on business. The staff are super friendly and ensure that my needs are met.

    What a nice little place! I was so impressed. Stayed in Peterborough Thanksgiving weekend and was lucky enough to snag a room here! Rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were super comfortable! Breakfast here was great - hot and cold options. The location is beautiful, right on the river. I liked having breakfast and looking out at the river- it's nice if the weather is warm- you can sit outside and view the beautiful scenery! I was so impressed with this place!

    « Anniversary Treat »

    We stayed in Peterborough for dinner & a show for our anniversary. We had the King Premier Suite and it was lovely. Our patio overlooked the river and the weather was warm enough to sit outside. The room was immaculate with fireplace and jacuzzi, plus the king bed was extremely comfortable. Front desk staff were very friendly and professional. The breakfast buffet had a very good selection of hot and cold items, and the little danish pastries were delicious. The hotel is located close to the downtown area, restaurants and shopping, yet the setting is very peaceful. We didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub but they looked very inviting. Will stay here again when we go to another show.

    « Beautiful setting! »

    A great Best Western - in a great location in the city with a feeling of being in the country - right on the water within a park like setting - trees, flowers, geese - beautiful gazebo with picnic tables. Very quiet inside the hotel - nice indoor pool & hot tub with an outdoor sitting area. Hotel is on a main thoroughfare with easy access to all parts of the city. Good restaurants and shopping nearby. We will be back!

    « Visiting friends »

    This is a superb hotel. The rooms are very clean and attractive. The best part is the amazing night's sleep that you get on the pillow-top beds. Also very quiet. Parking is free, and so is the Wifi which is a plus. Loved having the fridge in the room to store our wine and lots of comfy chairs as we were entertaining guests. No restaurant on site, but a great hot breakfast supplied the next morning in the Riverside room. Eggs, sausages, toast, lots of danish and muffins, juice, fresh fruits, coffee etc. Lots of restaurants nearby. Great disabled access to all areas of the hotels which is a bonus. Would definitely stay here again.

    « one night for business »

    great little place , front desk service very help full. free parking and wifi . Although told the breakfast was awesome , I had to depart before I could use this service . express check out , if going ask for room 230 , very nice, comfortable with mini frig and micro. Plus you get a little raised deck to sit on outside of the rooms sliding patio doors. Which looks onto green space .

    « Very nice place »

    We decided to stay at this motel because it has an indoor pool. The motel was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the section called riverside and it was a great choice. We spent a lot of time sitting by the river feeding the ducks and geese while having a few cool beverages. The pool was excellent and clean and the hot tub was nice although it could be a lot bigger. Towels were plentiful and large. Our rooms were a good size with a big screen TV and a balcony with chairs that over looked the river and garden area. The included full breakfast was very nice with a good selection of breakfast items. My only concern was at checkout, they couldn't find my membership account for Beast Western. This is the second time this has happened so I missed out on the points for the two rooms I rented. I would recommend this Inn and will stay there again next time in Peterborough. It had free wifi as well.

    « Great scenery »

    Great scenery ...of the river and saw ducks which came up to us to get fed ! Accommodation was excellent , breakfast all included ..great place to stay ! Everyone was very polite...and always willing to make our stay better. Recommended great places to have dinner.
