About 7 yrs ago we were returning from Charlevoix PQ region to Ontario. It was a stormy day/night but we were expecting a range of hotel choices on the west island. Nothing but a fully booked one (since then a few hotels are springing up). Cornwall was next and it was 8pm by the time I checked us in. The Best Western (this was before it became the Parkway Conf etc) felt like a refuge after that drive. I was greeted by a warm and friendly older gentleman who offered me their luxury 1 bdrm suite (honeymoon suite?) at a reduced rate. I kindly declined and asked for the double queen. To my surprise he decided to give the suite to me for the same price! I wish I had noticed his name, I would have thanked him afterwards. Needless to say it was quite a special treat for a couple of weary travellers. Marble bath with double headed showers, separate dressing area, lovely living room etc. This is how we were introduced to the hotel. It was a very rare incident I'm sure. We ate in their Hops & Barley lounge and had a wonderful dinner.
We recently stayed again but in a regular double queen room. It was spacious, clean and perfect. The H&B lounge is an attractor. It's done in a cozy old style, comfortable armchairs, even an old stuffed moose head over the fireplace, and a log wall. Great place to relax in the evening.
The staff were very courteous and accomodating both at dinner and breakfast. This hotel will always be our stopover between Barrie and Montreal. less
