Drake Devonshire is such a fun little hotel on a really amazing piece of property! Our room was clean and full of quirky artwork and they surprised us with their house wine for our anniversary. The beds are great and the shower was maybe the best I've ever used. Great bath products too. Everyone we encountered that worked there was...

On the day of checkout I received a phone call from the front desk, Brandy was the agent. She demanded we leave the premium room that we had for two days, large A-frame suite facing the lake. It was 11:10am and she said the check-out time was 11:00am. I respectfully responded that we can shower and be out by noon....

Thank you again to Morgan and all the staff for making our stay extra special. We truly appreciate it. We had a fabulous time. Everyone at Drake on the Lake made our anniversary even better than I could have imagined.

The Drake established itself some years back as a great boutique hotel in the west end of Toronto. It was a destination for good food, good music, the arts and being seen. They then opened a restaurant in the heart of the financial district as well as a store within a store at The Bay selling neat merchandise. And last...

What better way to greet the New Year than with a night at the Drake Devonshire. The team at the Drake Devonshire exceeded all expectations, from the reservation experience over the phone, to the surprise upgrade upon check-in (the Owner's Suite is detailed to perfection...(inc. the bedside kettle corn!)... basically heaven on earth!), Morgan, the Drake's Hotel Manager runs a...

Very, very nice room we had, overlooking the stream. The curated artwork permeating the venue was a welcome vision. The staff, oh the staff, must have been raised on hospitality farms; they were exceptional and flawless. The daily specials were well thought out. The dinner menu was small, both in choices and plate size, especially the lightly fried fish. But...

My husband and I had a party in the area and booked the Drake. Great small hotel very cozy and cute. Amazing staff would definitely stay again. The hotel is very quiet you won't hear door slamming. It has a very cute cottage feeling, had breakfast and great food and service.

Jeff Stober and his team have nailed it. From the moment we returned after a year, we felt comfortable and at home once again. They have managed to balance rural ease (the service is just wonderful) with top of the line sophisticated ambiance, food, and accomodation. Morgan is a treasure at the desk, and Jordan in the restaurant was extremely...

We booked for 2 nights in early November, and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Our room was wonderful, with the right amount of funk and hipness. We arrived on Hallowe'en and were greeted at the door by employees dressed as ghouls, bumblebees, and Slash's steampunk twin brother. Our room was a queen with courtyard view (room 207), and we were pleased...

My wife surprised me with a weekend away. I've never heard of this place before coming here and now I can't stop talking about it. We arrived and got an upgrade as we were originally booked in an accessible room. Although it was cold we got to enjoy our balcony with lake view with our complimentary coffee each morning. My...
