Very clean, comfortable rooms! Quiet, peaceful, overlooking water! Nice place to just chill, with a good book. Excellent breakfast menu (and lunch and dinner too, if desired.) The staff were friendly and helpful. A close walk into small town, and boat rides available of The Thousand Islands, makes for a nice entertaining day! Passports were required on the boat trip...

Tucked away down an attractive tree lined street, right on the banks of the St Lawrence river , The Qananoque Inn is easily the best situated hotel in this little town. If you are looking for a trendy, modern boutique style hotel with a poncy nouvelle cuisine style eatery, keep driving. If, like us, your looking for comfortable, well appointed...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you found us and enjoyed your stay. Our waterfront location is indeed a bonus! As of last weekend Watermark, our fine dining restaurant, is now open for the season providing additional dining options on site.

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay in a beautiful waterfront room, which was clean comfortable and quiet. Dining package was excellent value with great service in restaurant. We took advantage of spring special which gave us a superb room right on the water, dinners and breakfasts all for less than $200.

We have stayed here before and are always well received by staff. The room we had this time was a corner room which had a nice view and quite large, the washroom is starting to look a little aged and I am not sure how the water system works, but it took a long time to get hot water. There...

Thank you for your return visit and nice review. I'm so sorry our Spa was unable to accommodate you. If staff are in the reception area it is because they are waiting for their clients to arrive or to change from their street wear or robes. Staff always step out of the treatment room while this occurs. Because we are...

The Gananoque Inn and Spa is a great getaway, we have travelled to a few other B&Bs and other comparable Inns in the area and really enjoyed the Gananoque Inn most of all.

Thank you for your review. We are always happy to know that guests have enjoyed our quiet time of the year. The summer months have a completely different busy, but fun vibe. We hope you will have the opportunity to sample that sometime too!

What a lovely place, they gave us two adjoining rooms on the waterfront, two beds In each with lots of room for our many art supplies. Even a DVD player with movies at the front desk to pick from, free of charge. Two...

Whether you are a guest in the hotel or are just looking for some pampering, the Gananoque Inn and Spa is a delightfully cosy spot on a chilly winter day.

We have enjoyed about six one or two night stays at the Gananoque Inn, taking advantage of their great weekend getaway rates - mostly off-season. You can't beat the prices that include a fabulous room or suite with fireplace and Jacuzzi, dinner and breakfast. In-season, the 1000 Island cruise ships are right next door. We have never been disappointed.
