If you are super fussy and expect nothing but brand new updated high end accommodations then this is NOT the hotel for you. When we travel, we like clean and comfortable, friendly check in, nice pool and hot tub. This Holiday Inn had all that and more. Located along the water and near Tim's, pubs, pizza, grocery store, beer store,...

Was in town for a funeral and traveling with a one-year old. Staff were overly helpful and polite - a plus. Pool was a big benefit as it was clean and entertained our little one. Even the hotel restaurant / bar was nice...food seemed a little pricey but it was good and they were accommodating to our family size group...

I travel to Pererborough frequently for business and as an IHG member, I try to always book at IHG properties. This hotel is in a good location for me, and it has a nice view if you get a riverside room. I'm a platinum elite member, which means I should be upgraded where possible, however, I don't mind not being...

Hotel is very dated, but probably best in Peterborough. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Felt sorry for them as groups of rowdy kids and their families checked in for weekend baseball tournament. This place is actually decent enough for locals to hold weddings. I would recommend this place for short stay, but Peterborough really needs an other option.

This is a marginal Holiday Inn. Rooms on the street side are extremely noisy. The rooms are standard mid-60's style/decor - I'm sure the carpet throughout the hotel dates from the day the hotel opened. The upholstery on the chairs in my room were filthy - big stains. I didn't want to put anything on them. The beds were reasonably...
