Other reviews comparing the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre with a university dorm room are very accurate. Walking long distances through mazes to get to your very small room are also accurate. Milling through student sprawled about and through many business men it again true to the experience. Groups of people standing in the hallway, talking, outside your room is very noisy and annoying. The bed was truly miserable and uncomfortable as were the pillows, although when I was leaving I saw at the desk that they did have a pillow choice you could request. I actually had to get up at 4 a.m. to take a walk because my back hurt so bad from the bed. I have never had to do this. I would guess it was the thin piece of foam on top of the cheap mattress, advertised as a pillow top bed, that got my back. My phone did not work nor did the internet. It was explained to me that it was a Mac problem. The room was so small that we had to sit down to let the other pass by.
My food was horrible. I ate at the first floor restaurant. The server was kind and attentive as were the staff at the front desk. The grounds are lovely.
I don't know what to say at this point. It has potential but maybe it should have a separate area for people who are not business school students or part of the conferences. Maybe an area with rooms that can accommodate 2 people with a bed that allows you to sleep through the night. It was the least romantic place I have ever stayed so get that idea out of your head if this is your plan. It is and is run like a business school.
