Our volleyball team stayed at the Glenmore Inn this past weekend for a tournament at the Rally Pointe, which is a quick and easy 5 minute drive away.
They offered us a reasonable rate, which included a hot and cold breakfast. The breakfast had scrambled eggs (not microwaved), pancakes one day, and waffles the other. Bacon, sausages, fruit salad, muffins, toast, and cereals, served in their cafe.
The pool, is not huge, but has a fun, and fast water slide that the kids really enjoyed.
They have a hospitality room on the 3rd floor, which overlooks the pool for teams to use as a common space. We used it in between games to hang out, and served our team lunch there, since we were so close to our venue. It had enough banquet sized tables in it for a couple of teams at the same time.
We had requested that our players be blocked on the same floor, which they did.
They also offer a team meal for $12.50, which includes the tip and tax. It consists of a buffet style of pizza or pasta, Caesar and fruit salad, buns, cookies, and squares, and juice, pop and milk. We opted to do the pizza, and spaghetti buffet for $15 each, and there was a tonne of food, and it was Excellent! Best of all it was nice to be able to pre-plan supper for our team + families and not have to leave the hotel.
We also ate lunch in the cafe one day, and it was Excellent! The service was great, anytime we were in the cafe for breakfast, lunch and supper.
Our hotel room was updated and a good size, but the beds are pretty hard, and not very comfy.
One unfortunate part about our room was the bathroom. You could smell that this used to be a smoking room, because you could still smell the smoke coming out of the walls, especially when the shower was on- the steam would bring out the smell even more. I am really sensitive to smoke, so I could smell it. It was not enough that we needed to be moved to another room, but something for management to make note of.
As a team, we would stay here again, as our experience as a whole was very good. They definitely cater to teams, which we noticed and appreciated.
