We have recently moved from Toronto to live just one hour away, travelling East along Lake Ontario. Port Hope is a charming, historic, small town offering a multitude of shopping and cultural activities for residents and visitors alike.We now enjoy receiving friends who come to verify that we have made the right choice.
Many of our visitors choose to stay overnight, and we have no hesitation in booking them into The Waddell, a delightful boutique hotel, located adjacent to the river , at the end of the award-winning main street.
Most recently,our friends, a group of three ladies, spent three days in Port Hope last week-end.They report that, from the moment that they arrived at The Waddell and were warmly greeted by Bob Sanderson, the owner, all of the staff made every effort to ensure that their stay was comfortable and filled with positive memories.
The hotel ownership changed just over a year ago. Since that time, it has undergone a complete restoration, now providing approximately twelve beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, many with fireplaces,and views of the river. In addition, Trattoria Gusto is the gourmet restaurant providing breakfast, lunch and dinner either inside, or ,weather permitting , on the outdoor terrace overlooking the river. A lighter menu is offered in the very attractive lounge bar. We joined our friends at the hotel for various meals, and verified their appreciation for the charming service and delicious cuisine.
We have yet to hear any form of criticism related to The Waddell, and will continue to utilize this welcome addition to Port Hope, confident that our friends will be well pampered during their stay.
