We spent a long weekend in Bruce. We had a really good time during our stay because of the hot tub in the room, the BBQ and the lakeview from a private balcony. The staff were nice and helpful and the hotel is less than 5 mins drive from town and supermarket. The only downside was the pool wasn't ready yet, a little trouble when we trying to have BBQ with no tongs (bring your own).

Stayed: May 2011, travelled as a couple

Wiarton is PERFECT if you want to be close to sauble but want to avoid the crowds and the high prices! The "Colopy room #6" was beautiful, although small. and the bed was very comfortable and high. Apparently the upper rooms are recently built and new, and the original lower level still needs updating according to our hosts, but we did not see the lower rooms. The view of the bay was perfect. and the balcony was very nice and private. We got pizza from town about 3 minutes away and ate it on the balcony. Some things they do not mention in the room description: There IS a mini fridge in the bathroom under the sink. There is a T.V in the armoir. The breakfast buffet they offer on weekends in the banquet hall changes, but is a full breakfast including bacon, sausage, eggs, coffee/tea/juice, french toast or waffles, yogurt, fruit and homefries. Loved the jacuzzi in the room, plenty of hot water! And really loved sitting at the fire with a bottle of wine from the LCBO 3 mins away! Our only complaints were: towels and facecloths were not adequate for a couple. There was only one robe and the fireplace did not work. We will DEFINITELY be back!

Room Tip: the top floor with the view is new and very updated. The lower rooms are older.

We had two Waterview level rooms for 3 nights for a family holiday. The rooms are not large, but very adequate. The balconies are a nice feature. We enjoyed the evening campfires and walking the property which lies directly on the Bruce Trail. The heated pool was also very nice. Wiarton has numerous places to eat. The Green Door Cafe is especially recommended. Dave and Evan are great hosts and helped make our visit very enjoyable.

We recently had our wedding there, and since we were having a lot of people come from out of province, we wanted a place where we could all go and have fun - and we did exactly that! It was great - I only wish the weather were better so I could enjoy the fire pit more!

we arrived late, with no reservations & were given a discount (without asking) because there wasn't much time to enjoy the property

nice and clean, with a lovely Jacuzzi tub. great view of the lake from the balcony, enjoyed our morning coffee while looking at the awesome blue water of the lake. remember to close the balcony doors behind you though, or you'll have to spend the night with an army of bugs!
We'll be back though, next summer!
