                The staff was very accomdating, the waterfront a work of art, stunning and a joy to walk through every day. We were there for a week. The Portside Restuarant food was excellent.

                The bathrooms did not have any counter space, sometimes understandable in older accomdations.

                Wifi was very slow most days.

                10.0

                Despite mix up with ropoms - several given to us - had other customers already in them, the staff were very apologetic and professional in resolving teh situation. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Lakeside beautiful view and quiet.

                Bathroom could use a makeover - grout in tiles needs replacing

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Clean rooms, affordable,lake front

                Showers could be more powerful.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Friendly check-in people, nice quiet room, great bright bathroom with lots of natural light and good shower!

                It was fine - no complaints.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                The location and the price.

                Slow service in the bar and only one small, slow elevator.

              • Single
                8.2

                Great staff. Large rooms. Quality food and service at the Portside Restaurant.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                Excellent staff, clean room and nice bathroom.

                Not good location (looks unsafe)

              • Family with children
                6.2

                Good central location to get to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, and to restaurants in the northern part of Thunder Bay, plus it is close to the marina park. It is a nice older hotel with friendly staff.

                The fourth floor was very noisy, both noise from the hallway (slamming doors, talking, drinking, laughing, etc.) kept us up very late and the next door room had four women in it who were up at about 6 AM talking. We could easily hear every word they said through the connecting (closed) doorway. That woke us up about 6 AM after getting only a few hours sleep from the hallway noise. Also, on a previous visit the swimming pool was being repaired and not usable. This time the hot tub was being repaired and not usable. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and would not stay there again, primariy because of the noise and the lack of advertised facilities.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Restauant and location

                Didn't like the fact that you have no special rates for anyone who stays longer than 3 nights.

              • Older travelers
                4.2

                Bed

                No WiFi or wired connection in the room Had to go to the lobby to connect with bookings.com to make onward hotel bookings

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                It was a good old railway hotel. Moderately classy with interesting features not found in modern chain hotels. Good central location with great views over the port and marina.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Built in 1911, this hotel has character and a beautific view of Lake Superior. Its not a chain, which is a plus. Expect a basic, but big room, one that looks real, simple and has no phoney decor. The staff is really nice and helpful and down home.

                The water was dripping in the bathtub.

              • Single
                3.8

                I did not like very much about this hotel. Location is good.

                Towels were dirty, the water in the shower kept changing from warm to freezing cold, there was no soap in the bathroom, and people kept waking me up all night while closing very loud room doors. Definitely not worth the money.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                The size of the rooms. The way the bathroom was layed out. You weren't putting on makeup over the tolite like other hotels

                The bathrooms were clean just outdated.
