we've stayed here a few times for business and it's nice but i would never pay the high rates to stay on vacation. the condos are horribly outdated. the internet in the main hotel building doesn't work and hasn't worked for months. when you mention or complain to the front desk they tell you the same thing - "we're getting...

We have recently had the need to come up to the Orillia area on a weekly basis, and after seeing the rooms online, were excited to try out the resort. We booked over the phone, and despite calling twice, never received email confirmation as promised. Additionally on the bill was a resort fee added on check-out which was never disclosed...

We were 5 people - myself, my son and his 3 friends. We have visited many times in the summer and winter because of its proximity. Close to Toronto. The boys were 15 years old and most resort activities are more geared to the younger kids, but we still managed to find lots to do. The outdoor pools could be...

The hotel rooms were nice - basic but clean. There were three different pools you could use so make sure you check them all out before you choose one - we liked the outdoor pool nearest the hotel but there is another outdoor pool overlooking the ski hills and another indoor pool in the hotel. The restaurant was good pub...

I visited this resort as part of a business/ family meeting. The resort is located at a good spot and was well attended. The reception was the weak spot. The two people at the desk were curt and uninviting. For eg. "Last name", "Credit card", were the only words out of her mouth. No welcome or any pleasantries. However the...
