Never a disappointment!

Pros: It has been updated since our last stay and was beautifully decorated. We love the rustic appeal of the bar area and spaciousness of the rooms.
Cons: The management of the hotel is doing a wonderful job and should keep on its current path.
Location: The hotel is a short car ride from the river front. We were able to find parking and walk by the little shops and restaurants.
We stayed at this hotel 5 years ago and based on that experience, selected it again. We were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the rooms are big, clean, and beautifully decorated. Imagine a fireplace in the room! We didn't use it this time, but did during our last stay. We had high expectations for our visit and were not disappointed.

Awesome

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Flights of Fantasy Suite for 2 nights for our anniversary. The room was amazing! The free champagne was a nice touch. We broke a bottle of compimentary San Pellegrino and when we called to get a broom and dust pan they came right away and offered to clean it up. We dined at Tom's place our first night and the food was amazing! I think their tarter sauce is the best one I've ever had. The second night we ate at Stephan's Bistro and the service was slow due to a busy restaurant and a new server taking care of our section. We waited 45 minutes for our apps but the wait was worth it! The apps and entrees were to die for. Unfortunatly the desserts are not made in house which I personally think is a shame. We shared a chocolate rasberry cheesecake, it was tasty but my boyfriend and I are both cooks and both agree that the cooks at this restaurant could make better desserts. Their breakfast was amazing as well, quicker service which was nice and never had to ask the waiter for anything. He was on the ball. In the end the Fireside Inn is an excellent hotel and we are probably going to return in the future. Its location is close to downtown and shopping malls. The staff are welcoming and friendly. Great hotel!! I've recommended it all my freends!!

Best hotel in Kingston Ontario

We stayed at the Fireside Inn this summer and by far, it is the best hotel in Kingston Ontario as far as atmosphere, friendly service, and Bistro Stefan is the best place to eat in all of Kingston. The whole hotel is unique and the staff make you feel very special

Something Different

We stayed in the Flights of Fantasy Suite and had a wonderful stay. The bed was very comfortable, and was amazed to see a tv inside the balloon over the bed. The little extras made this stay special. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definately stay here again.

It's the little things that make the difference

By far the best place & hotel of our week-long trip to Ontario. Shower was cool - had dual heads on a pivoting lever! Bathroom had makeup mirror & scale. Room decor might have been deliberate (theme) but was a little country - bed was absolutely wonderful (pillow-top!). Staff was friendly (one girl reminded me of Gweneth Paltrow, looks & personality), pub was very cosy - would absolutely stay here again!
