We enjoyed the rustic charm of this Inn. Very cute place. Hot/cold breakfast always appreciated. Restaurants on site very quaint. Wish we had time to enjoy the pool. Easy driving distance to everything Kingston has to offer. Seems a bit pricey.

Natalie M, We appreciate you taking the time to write a review regarding your stay. We are glad to see you enjoyed the "rustic charm" and buffet breakfast. We have entered into the busy season, therefore, our prices are higher than usual. However, they still compare to the city of Kingston. We hope you will return again soon! Yours in...

A found this older Best Western a few trips ago and is now one of my favorites. Easy location to find and close to everything. The restaurant on site is excellent with a fabulous dinner and an above average continental breakfast. The staff in the hotel and restaurant were awesome

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was great. We enjoyed the fact that there was a door between the bedroom and living room. Bed was very comfortable. Can't wait to book there again. Very cozy and homey.

I have been on the road travelling so I was looking for a quiet place to stay. The service was great. The room was comfortable, quiet and exactly what I was looking for... except I was on the 2nd floor and I had quite a bit of luggage. I was not impressed there was not an elevator. I had a...

The room was a comfortable size but for $170 a night I would expect ceilings without patched plaster and brighter bulbs in the lamps The pictures on the walls were very sun faded. The bathroom was very tiny. The halls were also very tired. The Hotel was on a very busy strip convenient to lots of restaurants and activities. the...

Stayed for one night passing through, rooms could do with an upgrade, tiny bathroom, had to call reception for tea although they had coffee. Toms Place was ok for a drink but food was pretty dire as was the service. Waitress was more intent on regaling the others with her story about a temperamental guest. Breakfast was good. If in...

The hotel room and common areas are exceptionally clean and well kept. Everything is acceptably up to date. The Bar/Lounge is comfortable and you can get a drink or pub fare for a descent price. The Bistro is priced at the high end but the food was very good. The buffet breakfast was excellent with something for everyone. Staff are...

Staff were friendly and efficient, service was quick. Lovely bonus was the surprise of "Amuse bouchée " from the chef. It was a mouthful of delightful rare beef with capers on a crisp tiny piece of toast. Crunchy and flavoursome. Very nice with our wine while we waited for our meal. Log fire added to the atmosphere. Definitely worth a...

Stayed here last week whilst visiting relatives near by and liked it so much we changed our plans and stayed longer! Really good sized, clean rooms with all you would expect. Breakfast was ok but defiantly not enough fruit. The beans were really bad and no bacon! The bar and its staff were excellent, particularly Patrick.

Room was clean, as advertised. Staff were exceptionally friendly especially the front desk and the breakfast crew. Pet friendly - travelled with our dog and received a nice welcome gift which included cookies and "poop bags" - a very nice touch for our stay. Have stayed a few times at this location and have never been disappointed.
