We stayed at the Waterview for 2 nights in early August. The room (Colpoy #7) had a number of amenities - Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, comfortable king size bed - and the deck had a beautiful view of Colpoys Bay. A couple of improvements would have enhanced the place ... the room still had a tube TV (remember those?) and the... More

We were'nt aware the sink and mirror were outside the bathroom in the bedroom area. Had we known this we would have chosen another room. The room is small with no... More

The staff was very friendly, the view beautiful from our balcony, however the place needs a little freshening up, inside and out. The room was comfortable, but too crowded with the big furniture and I would prefer the fridge and coffeemaker to be in the room as opposed to in the bathroom. . RvB

We stayed for less than 24 hours and really wish we had more time to enjoy the town of Wiarton and the Waterview on the Bay resort. The owners and staff were friendly and hospitable, the room was clean and had just what we needed. Nothing fancy but we had a great view, a balcony with a table and a... More

The best of this place is location, right on the bay, and the friendly staff. We were in a ground floor room, dated decor, and the windows and a few other areas sure could use a good clean, but bedding was good, and clean, bathroom was very tiny but adequate. We spent the eve sitting in chairs provided by the... More

We stopped there for one night and loved it! Felt very welcome, and relaxed! very clean room, and comfortable. The bonfire was fun, and the pool is great! Dog-friendly, which was perfect for our dog. The staff were also very friendly! Highly recommend this place if you need somewhere to stay for a short while!

The property is absolutely breathtaking. The prices were reasonable and I was very happy with the room, the view and the service. You can tell that there is a lot of care gone into making this place somewhere where people feel relaxed and can enjoy themselves, which is exactly what I did.

We stopped here for only one night and although a dated interior we found it clean and comfortable. As we had made no reservation we were pleasantly surprised by their attitude and willingness to help a couple of lost Kiwi's. even provided a few beers at cost......great service.
