What a great spa experience. Staff was awesome. Services offered were great. Facility is so tidy other than wet floor outside of change room. Food was awesome Looks like gluten free and vegan are accommodated Only concern was dealing with food allergies. It almost seemed like an after thought but was accommodated

Spent a day at the Wellness Retreat with the 'Stretch, Soak, and Savor' package. Started off by having lunch at the café. I had the fig and goat cheese flatbread which was fresh and used local ingredients. I loved it! Lots of flavor. I also had the flourless chocolate and pear torte which was good.

I cannot say enough good things about Strathmere! Our wedding was September 24, 2016 and was held in the Lodge. We spent almost 2 years agonizing over details, and exchanging way to many emails with the wonderful team. Lisa was assigned as our coordinator, and has been nothing short of amazing. We had a lot of requests - some trickier...

The new Retreat is Ottawa's best new spa. All of the areas are spotless and tastefully appointed. The Renew package is totally worth it! From the reservation desk, to the café, from the yoga instructor to the esthetician, every part of the service was first class! You made my day!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Strathmere is Ottawa's unique 200-acre country retreat and corporate getaway site. Since 1979, we have created an exceptional environment and hospitality services for many occasions, and host thousands each year for Ottawa weddings, meetings and social events. More recently, we have added a 6,000 square foot spa and wellness retreat to the property. The Retreat at Strathmere provides full Aesthetics spa treatments, daily yoga classes, and features a cafe serving organic, field to plate food, along with wine and beer. The grounds have also been expanded to include outdoor baths, fire pits, resting areas and walking trails. Located in the heart of our extensive acreage, our physical facilities include historic Strathmere Inn, 2 additional major event sites, three charming residences with 34 bedrooms, and bright and airy meeting rooms overlooking the meadows and gardens. We support these facilities with fresh, local and seasonal menus, accommodation, event planning and administrative services. We invite you to experience the new Strathmere! Celebrate. Renew. Grow. ... more   less
