Nice place to stay. Of course it only opened 3 months ago so lots of things to be ironed out such as pool completion, working elevator (not fun to lug bags to 3rd floor via stairs). Food was excellent! Great chef & staff. Room service lacking as shampoos were replaced with only hair conditioners each day and no replacement bags in ice canister. Just little minor details which the front desk were more than happy to accommodate. Great conference rooms and again I can't rave about the wait staff enough! Way to go Little Current and we will definitely look forward to staying there again soon!

Room Tip: Riverside for sure!

When I heard Manitoulin Island was getting a hotel and conference center, it seemed like a total disconnect. I've been going to Manitoulin my entire life and think of it as a remote and restful vacation spot catering to summer cottagers and boaters. So I could not have been more surprised and impressed this summer when I visited the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Center for the first time. From the outside, it looks like your typical hotel (think Holiday Inn Express or some other name-brand lodging). But walk through the front entrance and you will be blown away by the authenticity and beauty of this place. They have done an amazing job incorporating many things that feel "just right" in terms of décor - the cathedral ceiling that is reminiscent of a Native teepee, the central fire place, the check-in desk sheathed in logs, the stone floor and walls. All remind you that you are in a very special place - a place tied to the natural world and all its beauty.

While I did not take advantage of the overnight lodging, I did have the pleasure of dining in the dining room. The setting could not be more lovely with a large indoor dining area, an ample patio and views overlooking the beautiful swimming pool and La Cloche mountains and Georgian Bay. The chef has taken great care in creating a menu that is both delicious and unintimidating and a great value to boot!

The Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Center is a great addition to Little Current, Manitoulin Island and the entire region of Northern Ontario.

We have been to Manitoulin Island many times & were very happy to see this new refreshing hotel in Little Current...It is very clean, a bit stark, however...
The bedding is very comfortable with firm mattresses...The only downside is, there is no place to put soap or shampoo in the shower or by the sink...I did mention this to the front desk & the gal said the holders were on order!
The restaurant is pleasant with a nice view! Overall a good experience, however, a little pricey with no breakfast included which most hotels now, do include breakfast...

I was on a road trip with my wife and 3 kids (10, 9, 5). I had come up from Toronto, through Sudbury and though we'd hit the Island on the way home, crossing back though Tobermory on the Chicheemaun.

This hotel couldn't be better situated for arriving on the Island from the North, it is SECONDS from the swing bridge over from Espanola and right beside the tourism centre. It is a 2 minute drive to the marina and the shops of Little Current, the only nice part of the island east of Mindemoya, (the furthest west I got during my stay)
The lobby is fantastic, with a TeePee structure overlooking the channel and the bridge, with a great gas burning fireplace (child friendly...cool glass even when on). We could have sat there for hours.
This hotel was BRAND new when we arrived so many things weren't up and running yet. Elevators, while functioning, hadn't been certified, so I had to walk to the 4th floor. That was by my own choice though as I was offered a low floor (nice of them to ask).
Pool wasn't running yet either, but as luck (bad) would have it , the weather didn't cooperate anyway.
The room was very nice and the shower with glass doors was great (needed to lock kids out of the bathroom while showering though...no privacy). Beautiful wood ceiling made the room smell nice too. Also, the a/c to the room was fairly quiet, which makes for a great sleep.
The beds were also quite comfortable too. Not "Sheraton Sweet sleeper" good, but very good for a private hotel.
Toiletries were good, nice soaps and shampoos with good towels for drying off.
Wifi was quick and reliable too.

The set up is weird for food. Breakfast you have to pay at the front desk and get a chit. Dinner you pay IN the restaurant, and no one explains this ahead of time. Breakfast was OK, but it is generally hard to get good food on the island. (Buffet temp was not hot enough, and pastries were ok, but not stellar. Orange juice was cheap reconstituted and bitter, coffee was acceptable). Most restaurants on Manitoulin are terrible and without competitors,they won't improve either.
I didn't eat dinner at the hotel, as it seemed quite pricey. (Chicken curry with rice $23.00, even more than a nice downtown Toronto Indian resto).
I was also disappointed that the hotel, owned by the aboriginal marketing cooperative "Great Circle Trail" did not avail themselves of the opportunity to put aboriginal themed cuisine on the menu, or play music by first nations musicians in the restaurant / lobby. It was my hope to let my kids learn about the "other" Canada and experience / see first hand the culture of our countries first true inhabitants.There was little of that to be had anywhere, and my schedule didn't allow me to stay the extra 2 nights to see the Wikwemikong PowWow the following weekend.

Check in check out was easy and professional.

If you HAVE to go to the island, stay here. We checked out all the others we considered while booking and let me assure you that almost every other "inn", "auberge" or "motel" proved to be run down, dumpy or a far cry from the advertised condition.

The food was excellent and the service was very good. Chef Stewart is working his usual magic. The view is incredible and the restaurant/hotel itself is very clean and impressive. Cannot comment on the rooms as we did not stay overnight, just had dinner. Highly recommend this dining experience, it is several steps up from a burger or a hot sandwich!
