We stayed for the week end and had the corner room with a Jacuzzi. It was a great room with a water view. Room very clean and also had a fireplace. Staff were all friendly and I would recommend staying here.

Hi Janet F,

I am so happy that you could enjoy one of our most beautiful suites while you stayed at our hotel. The Jacuzzi suite was built to provide one of the best views in Owen Sound and the room has every option we have to offer. If you are returning to the area in the future, please ask about our romance packages. You will not be disappointed with what we have to offer in that package!

Thank you for taking the time to complete this review of your pleasant experience at our property.

I spent last weekend here with 140 other ladies (and a few gentlemen) at The Ontario Handspinning Seminar. What a gorgeous setting - perfect June weather with sunny days and mauve coloured sunsets over the bay. The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating to all our our requests, even if they had to.
The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and with beds and pillows that were oh, so comfy.
The meals that the group had pre-ordered had lots of quantity and variety, were served on time and in a most pleasant manner.
Really, I only have superlatives for this place.

Great view , Good service , Excellent dining Safe , Quiet , all superlatives. This hotel surprisingly is 30 years old and looks new. It is very well maintained . The staff is courteous and efficient and obviously care about the place. Its one of the best BW's we have stayed at. Perhaps a bit more expensive than some others but they all have something you can complain about.

We did not stay in the hotel but were looking for a good steak on our 29th Anniversary. My SIL suggested this restaurant. We she was spot on! We lounged over drinks and appetizers for about two hours and then we ordered the steak, I had the roast beef special with garlic mash and caesar salad to start. Everything was wonderful, taste, service, wine, atmosphere, view. The dining room has just been refurbished with new comfy arm chairs and marble tables. We sat in the sun for hours ate and laughed and watched the boats go by. Hailey our waitress was perfect, attentive but gave us the space we needed to enjoy our special day!! We signed up for the card for great discounts and hope to return again and again!

Room Tip: Did not stay - only had dinner

Hi Skyturtle101,

I am very happy that your son in law recommended the Bishop's Landing restaurant for your anniversary dinner. It is even more pleasing to see that you enjoyed every aspect of your experience in our dining room. We currently employ two Chefs that work to ensure quality food comes out for every meal and I am glad to see that reflected in your review as well. With nicer weather on the way, our patio overlooking Georgian Bay will be much more comfortable. I should mention that the sun sets over the water across the bay each night throughout the summer. We hope to see you there in the near future. I believe your rewards card will be very worthwhile as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review of our restaurant.
