Thank you for your great review. We are a boutique hotel located in the heart of downtown Orillia close to many shops and restaurants. We do have many amenities that we can assist with in the event a guest forgets. I am sure you will share in our excitement that we are starting the installation of the much needed elevator. When you stay with us again you can ride in style. Thank you again and we look forward to your next visit.

The hotel has been renovated and our rooms were comfy. Rooms were extremely small. Our luggage had to be closed up, otherwise there wouldn't be any room to walk. There was a desk and mini- fridge. Microwave is available in the lobby. Breakfast was adequate and

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed your time here. We are a newly renovated vintage Boutique Hotel (built in 1921) that has been superbly renovated to a very high level of finish. The rooms are not large but the designer has utilized the space well and we have all the required amenities such as a Keurig Coffee maker, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, fridge, work desk, USB charging plugs right by the bed etc. The TV is huge and mounted on the wall at the end of the bed. I as sorry that your check in felt lengthy and i will be sure to check in to it. We are very grateful for all feedback that allows us to monitor, and so improve, our service, and we very much hope for an opportunity to demonstrate our standards on a future visit.
