“Great family spot. Clean, good location for travellers.”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We were just driving through and needed a place to stop for the night. We were very glad to have chosen this one! We had our two kids, ages 3 and 7 with us and they were thrilled with the great pool area and water slide. It was a great way for them to burn off some pent up energy after so much time in the car.

The hotel was clean and modern. The lobby area was very nice. Plenty of free parking. It's conveniently located near many restaurant options, including a good one right in the hotel. There is a nearby mall and it's a short drive to the 401. It's close enough to downtown that it's a quick drive, but far enough that you're away from the busier city traffic.

The pool was great. Nice warm water, well kept, cool tropical feel. Kids also loved the large koi pond next to the pool.

We were able to save $20 by using our CAA discount, so that was also a nice perk. I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for positing your review. It is fabulous that you found us! How nice that it worked out so well and that you all got a break and the children got to enjoy the pool and find our fish in the river by the pool! We are happy that you found the property to be clean and modern. We completely renovated our lobby very recently so it’s nice to hear that this has been noticed. We look forward to your next visit with us!

My boyfriend and myself stayed at The Lamplighter Inn this past weekend; the room was spacious and very clean! The staff was welcoming and accommodating. There was a couple functions going on and was slightly concerned we were going to hear them all night considering our room was facing the pool deck! Didn't hear a sound! Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again!

Great rooms, great pool and great service. We had an amazing time just relaxing, swimming and eating. The location is easy to find. It has all the amenities friends or family need in a mini vacation. There is staff always available to help you. They keep this hotel very clean.

Thank you for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed the guest rooms, pool and service! It sounds like you found Shelly’s Tap & Grill as well. It is a one stop for a get-away and we are so happy that you were able to experience it. Thank you so much for your compliments and we look forward to your return!

I travel extensively for work and stay in a lot of hotels. This hotel was a WOW. I did not expect how nice it would be from the outside. I can't wait to return with my family to try out the pool and water slide.

We love the Best Western Lamplighter. Since our first trip years ago, we continue to enjoy any time we go. Only one hour away and yet, once inside, we feel like we're in a tropical climate. A super great way to break up our Ontario winters! I love to swim and the pool is great. While it is aesthetically pleasing, it's also a great workout pool when one gets up early to 'beat the rush'! I even still use the waterslide. It's great place for a quiet little getaway or funfilled family time that satisfies multiple generations.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our property. We are happy that you and your family enjoy the hotel, tropical atrium and swimming pool! The roof is open in the summer to catch the gentle breezes and it definitely turns into a tropical paradise in the fall and winter. We have couple’s that stay with us for a couple of days weekly all winter instead of travelling south. Many families enjoy the pool and waterslide on the weekends. There is definitely something to satisfy multiple generations. We look forward to you returning to visit any time!

Very enjoyable. The hotel is spotless and well maintained. The pool and hot tub area were not overly crowded at is was midweek. Nice little oasis in this area with all the tropical plants and palm trees. Our room was very inviting and extremely clean. Wi-fi was fast and reliable. Bedding was so very soft. Memory foam on the beds very luxurious and comfortable. We had originally thought that the restaurant would be overpriced and that we would need to eat elsewhere. We were pleasantly surprised and had both dinner and breakfast there. The food was good and the breakfast special at $5.25 was a real bargain and great way to start the day. If in the London area again, we will definitely plan to stay here.

The Sales and Catering staff (particularly Jessica) are especially top-notch in handling the smallest details as well as accommodating the larger, more unusual and complicated requests for conferences and other event planning. Our Program has been dealing with this hotel exclusively for our events for 15 years. Each time we organize an event at the Lamplighter Inn we get smiles of recognition from other support staff, including housekeeping, catering service staff, and front desk, who have all been extremely helpful, friendly, and cheerful. Spur-of-the-moment changes are taken care without delay. There are various conference packages to choose from that are quite cost effective and in line (or better value) with other hotels with similar services On my most recent visit in June 2014 I also required accommodations for myself for two nights, and I can say that this was very convenient and pleasurable for me to be treated like a special guest with some extra special touches tossed in, courtesy of the Catering department. The rooms are lovely and quiet, even though the room I was in was located in the older section of the hotel, so I can only imagine how much nicer the recently renovated guests rooms are. The main lobby and other main areas have recently been updated and are quite attractively decorated with rich, warm wood doors and panelling. The front lobby has is a very handy business centre with three free access computers and printers, but separate from the check-in desk and lounge area, so that there is some privacy. The atrium area is fantastic and a bit hit with our conference participants who love to have the buffet lunch in such a bright and spacious setting next to a waterfall. I have also seen at least 4 weddings in the Atrium since I've been coming to this hotel and they are quite beautifully done. There is a water slide and pool area that is surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful carp in a separate pool area for interest. The gardens are tended by a dedicated specialist (Phil) who takes great pride in his creations and who has even won an international award. My one disappointment was a recent change from lush gardens to a more structured and sparse garden design based on Feng Shui, however, it is still very nice. I miss the huge display of African Violets that were removed during the redesign. I hope they found a good home. Participant evaluations of our events at this hotel have always been above average in terms of hotel amenities, food, cleanliness, etc. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely hotel for business or pleasure. It's only a short distance to the 401 highway, as well as shopping and downtown.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel have not been recently renovated, but are still very nice and perhaps...

Thank you so much for your detailed and complimentary review of our property. We are so pleased that after so many years you still enjoy the hospitality of our hotel and are enjoying our newest renovations! We have many regular conference and hotel guests. Getting compliments like this still after 15 years makes us very proud. The African Violets found a great home. Our Gardener loves his job and sharing his knowledge. I encourage everyone to visit with him to learn about his passion. Thank you again for taking the time to tell others of your positive experience at our property. It is very much appreciated!
