Expensive, no breakfast, poor PR

Pros: Facilities seemed nice and the location is downtown.
Cons: Include breakfast, that trumped up continental breakfast that was branded a buffet should be included.
Location: 15 minute walk downtown. Billards is just down the street and excellent pubs such as St. Veronus and Hot Bellied Mama's/Olde Stone. Trent campus close
We booked a King bed and the room was nice. The in-room coffee maker did not work but no big deal we thought. The next morning we got up for breakfast and decided on the buffet as the menu had prices so was clearly not included. The buffet was standard hotel food but we then found out that the buffet was not included either. It was 20$ per person which would have been useful information before. We brought it up with the hotel staff at the front desk and they shrugged and said "Well the rooms that have breakfast included are WAY more expensive". I guess around 400$ over 2 nights doesn't get you breakfast these days and our treatment by the staff left a bad taste in my mouth when they could have turned it into a positive.

Lovely pool, but noisy stay.

Pros: Pool, sauna, hot tub.
Cons: Be more proactive about managing loud and disruptive guests.
We were only there for one night, but other hotel guests were inconsiderate, rowdy and disruptive. Even after someone else on the floor called the front desk to complain, there was only a slight improvement. Walls are very, very thin between rooms and into the hallway, and it lead to a very frustrating night.

I apologize for the noise you experienced during your stay. We do have an outside security company patrolling our halls during high occupancy dates to try to be proactive with guests that may be enjoying themselves too much.

Well appointed hotel in downtown Peterborough.

Pros: The restaurant in the hotel overlooked the river. The breakfasts that I had were well prepared. The service was quick & the wait staff professional.
Cons: The hotel could use an additional elevator closer to the lobby as it is now a long walk to the far end of the first floor.
Location: The hotel is within easy walking distance to downtown Peterborough with many eating & shopping choices.
Very pleasant, polite & professional staff. My room on the top floor was clean & quiet.

Wasn't my best experience with hotels

When I arrived at the hotel, my room was not ready. Parking lot was full. Smokers at the entrance when sign said smokers stay 27 feet away from entrance. Hydro went off at night, smoke detector beeped in the night....a/c not on due to hydro off, pool closed 2 times due to storm outside. A wedding reception was going on, which took up most of the hotel ammenities and quite noisy. Not a good experience at this hotel at all.
