"We transferred our accommodations to this hotel following a bad experience at another hotel. What a treat!! The ftaff were most accommodating, friendly and professional. The continental breakfast was available in an elegant setting. Our only recommendation is the coffee preparation (arrives in thermos style carafes) would be fresher and hotter if prepared on the spot. We were able to prepare coffee in our rooms, so this wasn't a problem. Otherwise - we had a most enjoyable weekend and would go back any time we're in Regina."

"Good place to stay. Only drawback is that the parking is quite a ways from the front door and you have to walk out the front door and walk around the corner and down the street into a public parkade. Otherwise, rooms were great and service was good."
