"Our room was perfect. We especially liked the fact that there was a shuttle to the Casino. The hotel was close to the main highway but no noise. The staff could not have been better, helpful, kind etc...There was only one thing I personally did not like, that was the coffee. After all I am from the north (Tim Horton Country)"

"The bathroom fan seemed inoperative or not up to par. Did not seem to be moving much air. Also, I used the fitness room and an oscillating fan would be usefull. Comment to use. " This is a well managed facility, with friendly and courteous staff. The manager has instilled customer service in his staff and should be proud of them. The hotels is in a prime location to take advantage of all the ammenities of Orillia and the surrounding area. We will stay again at this fine establishment." Thank you, Karen and Marcel"

"I have no complaints. I'm satisfied that you provided good value for money and that the room was clean and comfortable. I do, however, have one suggestion about your breakfast service. It's very convenient to have breakfast in the hotel. The food was good as far as it went, but I like a little more protein in my breakfast. I'd be prepared to pay a little more for my room to have eggs, meat or cheese with my breakfast. Alternatively, I'd have like the option to order a breakfast with those items a la carte. Yours truly, Dom McAlea"

"Given that I booked the hotel room for business purposes, I was disappointed in the furniture in the room. Instead of a large table or desk, there was a small table in the corner that also served as the telephone stand and coffee table. I found it too small to comfortably work on during my stay."
