We decided to stay here while we visited the Bruce Peninsula, and it is a great location to choose if you want a family oriented location. You can bring your own food and grill meat, chicken while you stay there (bring your own tools). Or you can get your food in the restaurants that are located in Wiarton. The hotel...

I wish I knew there is a campfire at night. Some s'mores would have came in handy on a cool Victoria Day weekend. There are even bbq forks available. The accomodations are decidedly motel quality - rooms are adequate and a bit old, but it was clean, as was the bathroom. What makes this different from a regular motel is...

We found this spot when looking for a place to stay that was close to our hike on the Bruce Trail. What a wonderful surprise. We were greeted warmly by Tammy and we loved our room with a jacuzzi and fireplace. The room has a fridge and a coffee maker. The motel is close to town where you can pick...

Stayed for two nights to explore the area. Was a great choice as the rooms were clean and tidy and it was so relaxing to sit on the beach. Room had its own balcony with table and chairs.owners were very welcoming.

We chose this motel on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and were pleased with it. It has 5-star views across this arm of Georgian Bay to Colpoys Bay but has improvements underway. Essentially it's a three floor motel with not very large rooms but the outlook is just great. It's on a four-acre block with its own beach and that...

Thanks for the review. Yes we are continually renovating and upgrading. When we took over last July we made one major day of decluttering and have been updating rooms continually since. Many have required fully renovation. Thanks for your patience while we upgrade throughout.

Very friendly and accommodating owners who are obviously working hard to put the motel into top shape. Lots of work already done and continuing. Motel has great views of the bay and our room had a deck to sit out. It's also right along the Bruce Trail, which made it ideal for our visit. Bar sized fridge held all our...

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.
