“Excellent weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

The owners (Tony) are excellent people, they were there to make us feel welcome and assist in anyway possible. I have stayed in many small rural hotels in Europe and other parts of the world. The model T is as good as it gets for a turn of the century hotel and bar in rural Saskatchewan. Great food and resonable prices. Thanks....

Room Tip: The room vary in size. Some have bathrooms and some are just a couple of beds. They are small, but c...

Don't let the scruffy exterior make you drive past, the Model-T Bar and Grill (and hotel) is being nicely renovated on the inside. The owners have made the bar and restaurant comfortable and attractive and keep them very clean.

The suites are unique with bath tubs and cleverly shielded toilets.

The grill menu is basically burgers and fries. They are reasonably priced and carefully cooked. The day we were there the desserts were best avoided.

This is a good place to stop for a beer or quick lunch as long as you have reasonable expectations of the sophistication of the menu.

My boyfriend and I needed a getaway and were finding it difficult to find time in our busy schedules to do just that. He surprised me late in the week with the exclamation that we were going to Borden for a one night stay.

I couldn't have been MORE pleased with the ambiance when we arrived. Extremely professional and friendly staff/owners, warm and inviting bar atmosphere and then we toured the rooms upstairs.

The suites are tastefully redecorated and the attention to detail was astounding. From chocolates on the towels that overhung the beautiful claw foot tub, the beautiful matching tapestry on the bed and windows and the electric fireplace that was already lit for us when we checked it, we found ourselves "back in time" and couldn't wait to kick off our shoes and enjoy.

We also enjoyed a meal downstairs and though the menu wasn't extensive, we found it to contain just about everything one could ask for. When the meal arrived it was astounding! They have numerous homeade food items to choose from as well as some very tasty cocktail beverages (again, their own creations) which were fantastic!

Only a short, pleasant drive from Saskatoon, this is definitely a beautiful little way to spend a weekend or even just one evening when you need to get away from it all.

We will definitely be back!

Thank you!

A friend had told me that there was new owners of the Borden hotel and when in the area I should check out the dining room because the food was quite good. So on the way home from camping we did just that and got more than an excellent lunch. The hospitality from Tony right from the start was warm, relaxing and made you feel at home. After lunch I snooped around a bit in the bar and Tony showed us one of his pride and joys. An antique self playing piano , that he then played for us. The chef (Helen) then joined us and between the two of them received a little more history about the piano and hotel. Next time visit will be to rent a room to fully experience this little gem on the prairies. Thank you for saving a piece of our history and I love the 20's ,30's style that you are going with !
