Hotel is located on little lake. The gazebo bar and grill is on the waters front board walk. Fantastic entertainment every weekend. Boats can pull up and dock right beside the bar. Food is good and service is even better! There is a signature burger that they make every week and it's always good. Great finger food! Donna who runs...

Thank you for your great comments about the Gazebo Bar and Grill at the Holiday Inn Peterborough Waterfront! It is a wonderful spot to enjoy lunch or dinner and beautiful scenery in the summer months. Your comments will certainly be passed along so Donna can read them. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Visit was nice. hotel was nice. I have had some trouble with the booking as I bought my mom the room as a present and they still charged her credit card. This was in September and I have been trying to sort it out since. Overall the place is clean and nice and the river view is great

I wrote a review on my stay back in July. After I wrote the review I was told they were going to do improvements to the hotel and workout area. Well I stayed here in early December and still no improvement. The staff is still very friendly but the rooms, stairs, hallway and workout are so old. The workout area...

Recently stayed at this location. Get area right downtown. Hotel is starting to show it's age.

Almost below-average Holiday Inn, I'm sure the location is nice during warmer months but my winter timing didn't help with the review. Hotel rooms are old and dated as with the rest of the hotel. The fitness area/pool is cramped and dilapidated. Staff were friendly and welcoming but really there aren't too many better choices in Peterborough unfortunately.

This Hotel really need major renovations. Despite the perfect and nice location of this hotel it is not worth it to raven pay 10 $ for the room. No accessible electric plugs. Shower might not function as I had during my stay. The hotel is really outdated and old. However depending on the room you might have comfortable matters. Free...
