Over the years, the Inn has become tired. Rooms are not friendly to those with a disability, especially the bathrooms in the room and within the Inn itself. Great location, service and the breakfast is superior in many ways.

I am sorry, that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. I unfortunately do not know what room you were in, I can say that the door to the room is wheelchair friendly, but ,not the bathroom door, it is narrow, a walker will fit through but not a wheelchair. We do hope that you do return in the future.

Hotel's Favourite
The moment the door opened and I walked into the space, I felt at home. It has a cozy classy vibe about it. Room was clean with no bad smells. Pool was just right temperature on a heat warning day. Breakfast was yummy, with choices for everyone including fresh fruit. Staff service from beginning to end was efficient, welcoming. Good places for girls weekend, solo refreshing, adults with their parents, we saw some children with family who were no major concerns. Highly recommend. Will be back.

The hotel is a bit old school but still so very nice with a fireplace in each room. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were lovely. Dinner in Bistro Stefan was amazing. The staff was so friendly and helpful.

Really cozy and well maintained! Staff were very friendly and location was great for a quick trip to the city to do some shopping and run errands. Really nice holiday decor! Breakfast while ample was short on execution…it’s hard to run that kind of buffet when there aren’t a lot of guests, I would imagine.

Great amenities. Pub and restaurant on premises are fantastic. Good food and great atmosphere. The rooms are clean and comfortable although a little dated. Would still highly recommend this hotel. It is easy to access, lots of parking.

Stayed at the Best Western Fireside Inn for 1 night while visiting Kingston. Outdated decor but welcoming / cozy vibe. Rooms are clean, bed is comfortable, Wi-Fi is good, service was quick and efficient. There is a Food Basics grocery next door which is very convenient.

Was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff was helpful and attentive both at the front desk and at their restaurant. The room was clean and comfortable. I was happy that you couldn't hear hallway noises while sleeping. Definitely a good value for your money.
