I stayed for two nights on a business trip. While the property is very old (100+ yrs!), amazingly it is well maintained/furbished. Having a waterfront view, my room at 3rd floor was very specious - beds are comfortable,bathrooms too well equipped and spacious, airconditioning worked perfect - a perfect place! It has an inhouse restaurant - 'Portside'. I had breakfast...

We booked a jacuzzi suite as we were in town for a few days visiting my fiance's family for the first time. We had heard that this was the best hotel in town. Absolutely not. Lightbulbs were burnt out, one of the remote controls didn't work, one of the TVs was ancient and while the room was decent enough the...

Our room in the Prince Arthur was huge, clean, comfy yet dated (maybe classic), but for the price it was a good stay and a good deal. In the immediate vicinity there are a few bars, restaurants as well as fast food establishments. The reception staff were very friendly, cracking jokes when checking in and advising on the best room...

I spent 5 nights at the Prince Arthur while on a business trip and couldn't have been more pleased. My refurbished room on the 5th floor was extremely clean and comfortable and came with a decent-sized fridge and microwave, not to mention a fantastic view of the sleeping giant and the harbour. Sunrises were spectacular. And the room was so...

We had a regular room with a queen bed and a fantastic view of the sleeping giant and the harbor. The linens were great and we both slept really well. The room had a small refrigerator and coffee maker and coffee. We had coffee in our room and looked at the harbor and the sleeping giant. We were on the...

The hotel is over 100 years old, but has great character. Our room was huge, we were on the water side and had a great view of the marina and freighters coming in. We stayed in a pet friendly room and were able to go for walks close by. The restaurant food was great, and my son loved the pool....

What a nice stay! The hotel rooms are normal size, and are a bit older, but obviously have been well kept. The bathrooms, door knobs, TVs, are all older, however everything was very clean, and very well taken care of, almost 'antiquey'. The beds were comfortable, and we had a small (but old) refrigerator along with little drawers under the...

All the staff -- from the moment I made my reservation by phone to the time I checked out -- were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The old elevator was charming, the room comfortable and the breakfast fine. On the other hand, the pool was so bone-chilling that I could not swim and all the towels were paper thin.

I always try to stay at the Prince Arthur when I am in Thunder Bay on business. I stayed last year in August and I am going again in December. Beautiful view of the Sleeping Giant and the full moon view is spectacular. The dining room is great for sunrise and a hot breakfast. The park across the walkway is...

This hotel was a big disappointment. After having read the reviews I was expecting character and charm and all we got was a very dated, dingy, dirty hotel. When we arrived the "shuttle" from the airport was not there and we waited over a half hour for a cab that they had sent to pick us up. After arriving at...
