The ferry from Kingston, Ontario to Wolfe island was packed. ️We figured there would be no place to eat. We were shocked to see the restaurant empty. It surely wasn't due to the food or friendly service. The curry chicken soup left my tastebuds wanting more and the Montreal smoked meat sandwich was great. We had a wonderful friendly hostess.

I had a great time on Wolfe Island. The whole town is so small but it is a great place to hang out for the afternoon. The hotel is very rustic and not that economical, however it adds to the overall experience. One night is good.

I would have rated this hotel 0 if there had been an option to do so. I stayed here for two nights (I would have cancelled the second if I could have without penalty), and the service was horrendous. I telephoned to let the owners know that I would arrive late (it was a long weekend, I had to work,... More

I'm always reluctant to complain about service but this one needs to be addressed . We were 3 couples...no other customers in the restaurant. .and we waited one hour for our food to be served.! Even then the eggs were over cooked, toast cold and soggy. The server was polite however the wait was beyond ridiculous. Go to the WIPP... More

The General Hotel is an icon and has been around for many years. It offers rooms has a bar and pool tables. We had lunch there recently and the staff were gracious and the food was average.

We were ready for lunch after coming off the ferry. There was ample parking across the street so we decided to give this place a try. The decor is very dated and only two tables had customers. We considered turning around and leaving but decided to stay. We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed our lunch. Service was... More

We popped in to the General Wolfe after driving around on Wolfe Island. It's located near the ferry terminal. The restaurant serves a wide selection of home cooked meals. On this visit I chose a burger.... and it was delicious and juicy. The Wolfe is licensed and has a limited selection of beer and other drinks. If you don't feel... More

I had a minor disagreement with the hotel. However, they were quite decent about the matter, and resolved it very satisfactorily. I was impressed by the manner in which they approached the situation. There was very likely a financial cost to their decision, but it left me with good feelings about their maturity and compassion. I would highly recommend this... More
