Guided, as we so often are, by TripAdvisor, we were looking for a nice hotel--not a "leadership centre"--to break up a long drive between the Bible Belt and Ottawa, the Canadian national capital, on the occasion of the July 1 celebration of Canada Day. Always seeking quality properties other than chains, our eyes were drawn to the positive descriptions of this place called, strangely, the "Leadership Centre." We found precious little to detract us, and the price was right, and so we reserved a room there twice, coming and going. We could not have been more pleased! Our first night hosts, Steve and Julie, were even more obliging than hospitable, and every facet of our two rooms was on a par with any hotel we had ever occupied. Yes, there were ample facilities for lectures and workshops, but the hotel went far beyond expectations, and the breakfast--food as well as surroundings--served coming by Judy and going by Sue, was not to have been missed. The daytime hosts, Alex coming and Agna going, were more than happy to meet our every need, and if our travels ever again take us through that part of the world, there is no other place we would consider. Next visit we will leave time to explore the beautiful, expansive grounds.
