                                    Hot tub. Excellent location close to the lake and downtown core. Clean and spacious room with comfortable beds. The food selection at the buffet breakfast was varied.

                                    Breakfast room was definitely too small to accomodate large crowds of families. There was no place to sit down and enjoy breakfast. Parking spots were supposed to be assigned to the rooms, in reality everybody parked at random, which was not very convenient. This could have been easily avoided by painting the room number on a parking spot.

                                    The staff were amazing! Very helpful in directing us to different locations and attractions. The hotel really felt like a home away from home. I will definately be back!

                                    The breakfast could have been a little better. Example: more fruit, whole grains and better coffee.

                                    everything was good but there was no internet access and there was no movies. that was not good for me.

                                    Hairdryer was terrible... Needs replaced. Noise bleeds from the hallways in the middle of the night.

                                    I like the easy access to the hotel and to my room. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The staff were polite and helpful. The hot breakfast was excelllent. Very good value.

                                    The room was comfortable and clean - the pool and hot tub were neat and clean. Breakfast was a nice bonus. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The place was quiet (no road noise)

                                    The patio door in the room wouldn't open, so we had to walk around to get to the outside to our vehicle. The faucet dripped all the time. The bedside lamp was tempermental, it only turned off when it felt like it.

                                    It is a small hotel, thus more intimate and friendly service. Able to park right outside your patio doors and very easy to load/unload. Free internet, pool and hot tub. Right off of the 400 and close to many shopping and restaurant venues. Rooms very adequate with queen bed, couch, desk, etc. Very good value for the fee paid.

                                    This is what I did not like about the hotel, but not necessarily coomplaints.... 1. They do not have in-room movies and we had thought we may do this at night. 2. On the fridge there is a panel that tells fridge temperature and it actually lights up the entire room ! ! ! Not that big of deal but make sure you cover this before you go to bed...or it is a very bright "nite lite" for sleep walkers!

                                    My best friend and I booked a one day shopping trip to Barrie. We ended our very busy day with staying at the Royal Oak Inn. The courtesy desk staff were very friendly and accomodating. The room was great. The breakfast was excellent - loved the waffles!! The hotel was easy to get to. I would book a room there again in a hearbeat. I made an excellent choice by booking the Royal Oak.
