Resort is very dated. Staff was very friendly. Nice gift shop. Nice games room. Grounds were very nice. Dog friendly. It was the end of the season so there wasn't much going on there. Not sure that we would return.

Thank you for taking the time to review. I am glad that you enjoyed the grounds and our facilities. We have worked hard over the past few years to remove the "dated" look by purchasing new beds, linens, top sheets, bedskirts, tv's, fridges, replacing carpets and flooring and painting all overnight rooms and main building with new earth tone colors....

The location is very convenient. The staff is very helpful. We stayed a night on Oct 15. The room and bathroom was clean. The beddings were also clean. Really cannot complain at the reasonable price. Good value for the money.

We just returned from another fun vacation @ The Colonial Resort & Spa, Gananoque On. If you ever need time away, pleasant & relaxing, this is it.

We didn't stay here, we went for a couples massage when the Spa at the Ganonoque Inn and Spa was full. The Grounds are huge. Lots of room for the kids to play. Buildings look nice. The Spa initially looked kind of sketchy: You have to walk through the bar to get to it and the "serenity garden" is completely...

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay. The resort is located on the west end of town and many hotels are located on the east end of town. We are actually closer to the downtown than most hotels and we are closer to the waterfront as well. Room 55 is our smallest room. You may...

We enjoyed our stay for a night in september. Excellent choice for visiting the 1000 islands. Very well-located, clean and comfortable rooms, charming and quiet environment , swimming-pool, parking free, no restaurant but several possibilities not far away from the hotel, a gifts shop in the place. Just take care that breakfast finish at nine. Good qualité/price !

My boyfriend and I stayed at this resort during labor day weekend. It was fine, but there were a few things that needed improvement. In general, the staff was nice.
