“Emergency Trip”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

Had to go to Winnipeg on short notice and I knew I could rely on the folks at the Viscount to provide us with great accomodations and service that took the "edge" of the trip. Thank you Jodie and Crew!!!

I've stayed at the Viscount many times and probably will again out of habit. I miss the personal aspect when the husband and wife team owned and operated the hotel. The overall service has declined since they left.

Just got back from spending a night at the hotel and must say it was one of our best stays in Winnipeg. Check in was very fast and front desk staff were super. I had requested a ground floor room and they did not have one available when I made the reservation but put a request on my reservation......when I got there I had a ground floor room! I was happy! The hotel has been renovated and is lovely, very clean rooms, in fact the whole place was very clean. The only downside was when they renovated the bathrooms they did not think of women and make up bags......there is really no place for them in the bathroom but overall I would reccomend this hotel to anyone! Someone mentioned that they used a lot of clorine in the pool and yes the smell was quite strong but I think we all would have complained if there was not enough clorine and we all got infections......it is a public pool/hottub people you have to remember that.

We recently stayed at the Viscount Gort in Winnipeg and had a great stay. It is a very attractive hotel with friendly helpful staff and the most comfortable beds and pillows we have encounter in our travels.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool can be humid.

We were part of a wedding that was held at the hotel so we decided to stay due to convenience(with 2 young kids & having the room right upstairs is nice). The night we stayed was Thanksgiving long weekend so the hotel was busy & noisy. I can hear everything going on in other rooms and from the hallways. I'm a light sleeper & I can hear the traffic very clearly(stayed on the 4th floor). We've experienced friendlier & much helpful staff than this hotel. The beds were comfortable, the shower was poor. The morning of check-out, housekeeping was knocking at the door at 9:30am, when we were guaranteed a 12 noon check-out. Front desk said nobody wrote that info down. Still, regular check out is 11 am, why wake us up at 9:30? We left our iphone charger plugged into the wall outlet & when my husband drove back to the hotel a couple of hrs after we had checked out, staff said they couldn't find it. Honesty is very important to us & I will just leave it to Karma to take care of that. Overall, we'll never return & will never recommend this to loved ones.

We are disappointed we have not provided you with the fine attention, service and consideration we stive for with all of our Guests.

Clean and comfortable rooms in a well run hotel. This hotel is in a good central location (not downtown) with easy access to other areas of the city. Staff, front desk and restaurant were friendly and efficient. We attended an event in the banquet room - food was excellent.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights as we always chose this place when we come into Winnipeg. It's just as nice as always and the staff was very friendly. The room that was had was on the top floor but the traffic noise was a little loud as we were right beside Century Street. Next time I will request a room away from that street. Other that that it was great and will be back again. It's also hard to beat the 3.99 breakfast special with purchase of a drink.
