It was our first visit to the Manitoulin, and we had four days to experience the island. We could not have had a better experience than our stay in Meldrum Bay Inn. Shirin, our hostess, gave us great information so that we could make the most of our time on the island. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived,...

My husband and I travelled to Manitoulin Island and had lunch at the Meldrum Inn and Restaurant. The service was excellent, with the waitress checking in on us to make sure we were good. The food was delicious, very good portions and hot. Would definitely recommend and come back.

I can tell you I was heart broken to leave this place. This is it. You have to experience it your self . The experience with the Inn was amazing. The hosts are exceptional. The rooms, the feeling of home faraway from your home is hiding in every corner. Food - just perfect. The hummingbird - all day long in...

My wife and I and adult son had dinner at the Meldrum Bay Inn and we received great service from Sharon and our server Kevin. I am in a wheelchair but the restaurant was still accessible for me through the back. All things considered, we would recommend the Meldrum Bay Inn to others.

This is an older inn but it is clean. Staff are pleasant and atmosphere is very relaxing. Food was excellent and service was excellent. I had fresh whitefish that had been caught locally that day-can't beat it! Shirrin is a wonderful hostess, I would stay here again.

Serenity found! The stillness settled into my bones as I sat on the front porch at Meldrum Bay Inn. The sun starting to peak from the horizon cast its light gently onto the endless slender landscape. I can't remember when I felt like the young child I left so long ago. Rediscovered was the peace of waking to quiet and...

This Inn is at the farthest point you can go on Manitoulin, but well worth the journey. The people are wonderful, the food is amazing, and the rooms are clean and well managed. Pricing was good too. Shirin (extremely friendly and personable) is your hostess and her husband Bob does most of the cooking. There are also staff members Marsha...

What a pleasure to stay at the Meldrum Bay Inn on Manitoulin Island. A quiet peaceful location right on the bay. Dinner on the covered verandah was awesome. Everyone so friendly and you will make new friends. Stayed just the one night but will back!!!

The Inn is a charming place, with comfortable beds, great linens and interesting art work. Even better, our hosts Shirin and Bob who are enthusiastic, gracious and fed us very well. Spend some time in the gardens or on the deck & enjoy the hummingbirds! A wonderful place on the western end of Manitoulin Island to feel pampered and peaceful.
