Montreal, Canada
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stay there 2-4 times per year. Great location. Not far from downtown. Overlooks a lake which lends to great views and relaxing atmosphere. Although an older hotel, it is well maintained. After a recent renovation of the restaurant, the food, menu, and atmosphere have all changed for the better. Service is personable and friendly. I recommend this hotel.

Without going into detail I will say that parking, check in, rooms, rec facilities, staff everywhere,...

the hotel was in a good central location, near the city and easily accessible. Staff were courteous and friendly and asked if we needed help parking etc. Breakfast was very good and great service. Checkout was quick and easy. Price was a bit high for the time of year.

My choice of hotel for Halifax for value, service and comfort. Convenient location for downtown, shopping, forum, entering or departing the city. Breakfast is much more than most free breakfasts. Games room and pool is a plus for families. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Staff have always been helpful and friendly. I always feel welcomed there. And who can...

Great place to stay next time you're in town. Rooms were clean and the view of the water was great. It was quiet and the staff was friendly. I will be staying here again when I go back May 2017 for my next visit.

We recently stayed here for two nights and were very disappointed. The staff were not friendly (except for one foreign man), no one smiled or tried to make conversation. We had to ask multiple times for a playpen and towels to be brought to our room. The front desk should inform people that the pool towels are located in the...
