Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

Amazing hotel. Extremely clean rooms with comfortable beds. Great exercise room. Relaxing swims in the indoor pool. Friendly staff. When I travel with Canada, I ways try to stay at delta hotels and this one has maintained the high standards expected from delta. This location is one of the better ones considering the location and history of the building.

What a lovingly restored hotel! All the facilities are top-notch, a great staff, and probably the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever experienced. Our room was an elegant and peaceful blue and ivory color with a window overlooking the river. When they found out it was our anniversary, they sent up chocolate cake and wine to our room along with a lovely hand-written note. The staff in the lobby bar were especially attentive. And the location is just perfect, on the river and the riverfront park. We had a wonderful weekend in Saskatoon, in large part due to this outstanding hotel.

I only spent one night there but what a great hotel! The location is excellent. The service is very good and the facilities are clean, modern, inviting. It's one of those hotels where you would rather not leave at the end of your stay. Linen is crisp and fresh and the staff will stop at nothing to ensure that you have a comfortable stay.

Had a great stay here. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is old and the rooms are nothing special, but they are clean and comfy. The building itself is gorgeous, and the location is fantastic... Right downtown and on the river. Walk to the mall, restaurants, or go for a run on the path beside the river! We walked from the university to the hotel in about 20mins. It was a beautiful walk. I would definitely recommend "The Bess" (pronounced 'Bezz')... I was informed by the locals that nobody actually calls it the Delta!

Dear Linner44, Thank you for your review and especially your comments about the staff and our river bank location. You are correct that the hotel, which was named after a Governor General of Canada, Lord Bessborough, is affectionately known as the "Bess".

We stayed here for one night in a King sized bed overlooking the river.

The Delta Bessborough is one of the classic railway hotels in Canada. The current owners have done a great job restoring and updating the hotel. The rooms are small, but quite adequate. The view of the river was very nice. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well.

The staff were all top notch and professional. We had a light dinner in the lounge which was very good as was our breakfast the next morning. We did not have time to try out the pool.

We would certainly consider staying here again.

Ok, so yes the bathtubs suck, they desperately need re-coating. However, the 1930's charm is not lost throughout any renovations. I used to live in a beautiful apartment built and unchanged since the 30's and this just took me back. Gorgeous! The window treatments (glacier blue roll blinds and curtains) are amazing. The carpets and wallpaper and everything chosen are fantastic. The only things that hint the true date are the TV and roller office chair in the room. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Security guards are awesome and you feel safe if you have to go out to retrieve something from your car in the middle of the night. I'm impressed with how they deal with the boisterous guests that stay (laid back but keep things under control). I'd rate this a 4.5 because I don't know if eco/health-friendly cleaning products are used and the toilet seats are microban which I don't personally want touching my skin. But since I can't bring myself to rounding down it'll go up to a 5.
All in all, this place has charm, character and wonderful bunch of staff who are very gracious and unpushy (no grabbing of bags or demanding of tips). Made my stay in Saskatoon all the better!!!

Dear dneal, Thank you for sharing your experience. I particularly appreciate your comments about our efforts to retain the heritage elements. It is with this in mind that we have kept the original cast iron bathtubs. As you note we have been having some issues with the finish that was recently applied but expect to have this addressed in due course.

i decided that my wife and I should have a date night and we stayed at this iconic Saskatoon landmark. After a great meal at the Samurai we relaxed in a fabulous room on the 5th floor that had an amazing view of the river. The room had a great balance of modern comforts and historic charm. The overall service was excellent. Truly, a can't miss location.
