Editor's Analysis
Updated on Jan 15, 2013
Located one minute from the intersection of Highways 9 and 21 and roughly a 3-minute drive from Kincardine Centre for the Arts, the Best Western Plus Governor's Inn Kincardine is well suited to travellers who require a hotel providing easy highway access in central Kincardine offering banquet facilities and a free buffet breakfast.

This hotel has 59 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites, each offering satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, a mini-fridge, a coffeemaker, a desk, a hair dryer, and an iron and ironing board. Standard rooms offer two double beds, while rooms with one queen or one king and a sofabed are also available. King suites are offered and provide a separate bedroom, a kitchenette, living area with a sofabed, and a jetted tub.

Hotel amenities include a steam room, a hot tub, a business centre, fitness facilities, a games room, and meeting/banquet space. Parking is free and pets are permitted for $20 per pet per night. This hotel is wheelchair accessible.

A free buffet breakfast is available daily to all guests, and the hotel's two on-site restaurants, Durham Restaurant and Governor's, serve breakfast and dinner daily.

The Kincardine Lighthouse and Museum and the Kincardine Marina are roughly a 3-minute drive west of the Best Western Plus Kincardine, while Boiler Beach can be reached approximately 8 minutes away by car. Shopping is available in nearby Southampton at the Southampton Market (a 35-minute drive north along the coast), and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes south of the hotel.

The hotel's staff were a source of many compliments by guests. They were characterized as accommodating and welcoming, with one lodger remarking, "All the hotel staff from the welcome at the reception desk to the dining room staff to the room cleaning deserve five stars".

The hotel's location was also positively received by guests, who described it as close to the highway, local beaches, restaurants, shops, and the Port Elgin Pumpkin Fest. It should be mentioned however, that a couple of guests pointed out that the beach is not within walking distance from the hotel.

The Bad
