Lots of work needs to be done to bring Hotel Kenney back to what it use to be. It's sad to see the property in such disrepair. Just glance around and you see rotting wood, broken screen doors, lights that do not work, and weeds and cigarette butts on the sidewalks.

A lovely old canal hotel, with a personality. Yes, yes, maybe it could use a bit of paint here and there, but we arrived near the end of season, after a busy summer, so we figured things might be a bit slow. Well, the cabin was tidy and beautifully decorated, the staff were exceptional and friendly, and the meals were...

Visited on a sunny fall day, stayed for dinner. Dinner was fantastic. I had roasted pork. Broccoli, and potatoes. All done fantastic. My wife and I both had pie for dessert. Raspberry pie highly recommended. Definitely a good find in the Rideau canal area.

My husband and I had a delightful experience at Hotel Kenny. We arrived at the dock after a long day of boating and locking through many locks for the first time. The friendly staff made us very welcome as we sat in the lounge with a celebratory beer. It was also a very comfy place to sit with my computer...

We had a 6:30 reservation, were seated in a nearly full dining room and were not approached for almost 25 minutes. Alas the waitress approached to bring water and take our drink order and apologized for the delay. Upon prompt return of the drink order she took our dinner order and from there on the night was PERFECT. The salads...

We didn't stay at the hotel overnight; however, we did go there with a group of us (8) for a lovely lunch. The lunch menu contained several selections and included soup/salad, 4 main choices and 4 dessert choices, all for $19.95 - drinks and wine extra, of course. Our group orders included selections the veggie wrap, pan-fried tilapia and the...

We stayed overnight in one of the outside rooms; which had not been updated for many years (perhaps since being constructed). The screen door hardly opened; the AC was controlled somewhere outside the room and was unalterable, while the bathroom floor was a mess. The in-room wi-fi was spasmodic, though available in the main building. That being said, the food,...

We arrived at Jones Falls Locks on the second day of our canoe trip on the Rideau Canal. It had been a cold day of paddling against the wind, so we were looking forward to dinner and a cold drink. Since it was a Sunday night, we did not think it was necessary to reserve until a couple of hours...

Situated at Jones's Falls on the Rideai Canal system, this heritage hotel has seen better days. But, if you are looking for excellent food, a beautiful setting in a heritage site this is it! The soup was outstanding, the salad just enough and also delicious, the main course (my husband ordered stuffed pork tenderloin and I ordered the steak) was...
