This is our second stay at the Waterview. I was a little hesitant since learning there were new owners but I had nothing to fear. The room we had was recently upgraded with a new bed with new mattress that was very comfy. The room was clean and the view is still amazing. The best attribute by far is the...

I was part of a film crew that booked out this entire hotel last week and the experience was exceptional. Tammy and Ken took excellent care of us, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the property was beautiful. I would love to return and experience this hotel in the summer. I stayed in room 317 that had a fireplace...

We have stayed at the Waterview several times mostly under the previous ownership but this last time (July 2016) under the new ownership. The new owners are a delightful couple with a family. No complaints under either ownership. It meant a lot to me that the new owners continued with the evening community bon fire. Our cottage was perfect. In...

We stayed in a 2-bedroom cottage with lakeview. It was very new, very clean and spacious. Even though Wiarton is quite small it has an enormous supermarket so that buying supplys for dinner and picknicks is really easy.

We took a last minute, unplanned trip and found this hotel on TripAdvisor, booked and checked in an hour later. The host was very accommodating and had even pre-heated the room for us before we checked in. The room was spacious and very clean, bed is extremely comfortable. We would highly recommend!

We rented cottage 26 for a weekend. Cottage 26 has a beautiful view on the bay and has two bedrooms and a pull out couch. The cottage is perfect for a stay with children or when staying with some friends. The property is beautiful. The beach was lovely and our kids even went for a dip in the bay! When...

Good thing the quilts were warm and we didn't care about having a shower. seems harsh...

There were three of us in our party. The room was clean. We were a little surprised to find the bath/shower was in the bedroom and not in a separate room with the toilet and sink. We also found the room to be cold and asked at the front desk what we could do. They didn't come to our room...

We stayed on a weeknight in mid-Sept and found the Waterview to be quiet and serene. Saw the sunset over the Bay - beautiful. Room was small but clean and functional. Staff very friendly. Be sure to say "hi" to Wiarton Willie when you are in town.
