I liked the location, the rooms were very clean, we would definetly stay there again..and will next year at the same time..great bang for your buck
Just a bit disappointed that Stefan's was closed the night we arrived as it was a birthday surprise..when I called a few days before our arrival this was not mentioned
Lovely well appointed room...helpful staff...easy driving access to downtown
door pass cards failed several times, a small inconveniencethere was a structural problem with the floor in our room which made standing near the window somewhat unpleasant
They assisted us even after the web site did not forward the correct booking.
The online booking was incorrect, we specified 2 queen beds and for some reason they only were advised on one king. They did accomodate us and that was great.
Loved the ambience in the room. Staff were great and brought us an extra towel when we asked. Loved the exercise room. Super great experience. Breakfast was delicious too!! Thank you to the great staff
Not one thing
I love the cozy environment, with the fireplaces in every room and the matching cottage décor. I love the bookshelf and books, and the four poster bed, and the general cozy atmosphere.
The décor such as the flooring and wallpaper could be updated a bit, but I would like it to remain with the theme.Also, there could be more sound-proffing since I could hear a couple next door to me, and doors banging in the morning.
Nice clean room with fireplace. Toms place for supper was great and complimentary breakfast was good
Two lights come on with fireplace, not a deal breaker but would be nice just the fireplace.
The room was clean, cozy, and well decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful. I think it should be a 4 star...it was really nice. We will be back.
The waffle mix that was available with the free breakfast was overwhelmingly SALTY...that was a disappointment because I was really looking forward to the waffles. We mentioned it to the girl at the buffet and she said we weren't the first to mention it.
Room was very very small Fireplace was electric - very tacky
The fireplace in the room
the TV channels were fuzzy
The outside was nice and it had a chalet type look about it that was inviting
The rooms are very dated and would have been much nicer if it was updated
the hotel was very clean close to everything that we wanted to do. The rooms were very homey which was a nice surprise. The bed was very comfy. The breakfast they served was very as good.
no we were very happy with are stay
Awesome place! Every room has a fireplace (not real but terrific ambiance!) One has a Rolls Royce, and another has a hot air balloon, incredible. You will not think that it's at all special from the outside. The bed was great and the pillows just right.
Can't think of anything.
Good breakfast. Fireplace adds a nice touch. Clean bathroom and floor. Comfortable beds and good pillows.
Too many dust collectors gives the room a slightly unclean feeling. e.g. Artificial plants on shelves and walls. Bookcase with dusty looking books and knick knacks plus a shabby looking rug glued to a boxed stand used to rest your luggage on. Very dated.
Quaint decor well preserved historical hotel nice for a change from the often sterile angular modern structures
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Flights of Fantasy Suite for 2 nights for our anniversary. The room was amazing! The free champagne was a nice touch. We broke a bottle of compimentary San Pellegrino and when we called to get a broom and dust pan they came right away and offered to clean it up. We dined at Tom's place our first night and the food was amazing! I think their tarter sauce is the best one I've ever had. The second night we ate at Stephan's Bistro and the service was slow due to a busy restaurant and a new server taking care of our section. We waited 45 minutes for our apps but the wait was worth it! The apps and entrees were to die for. Unfortunatly the desserts are not made in house which I personally think is a shame. We shared a chocolate rasberry cheesecake, it was tasty but my boyfriend and I are both cooks and both agree that the cooks at this restaurant could make better desserts. Their breakfast was amazing as well, quicker service which was nice and never had to ask the waiter for anything. He was on the ball. In the end the Fireside Inn is an excellent hotel and we are probably going to return in the future. Its location is close to downtown and shopping malls. The staff are welcoming and friendly. Great hotel!! I've recommended it all my freends!!
We stayed at the Fireside Inn this summer and by far, it is the best hotel in Kingston Ontario as far as atmosphere, friendly service, and Bistro Stefan is the best place to eat in all of Kingston. The whole hotel is unique and the staff make you feel very special
The hotel property is beautiful!! The staff are amazingly nice, friendly and helpful!! The room was so clean and beautiful! The entire property is clearly maintained with pride!! We didn't want to check out in the morning!! I don't know how anyone could ever be disappointed with this hotel! The rooms are homey and tastefully decorated. You feel secure at this property - even in the lobby!
We stayed in the Flights of Fantasy Suite and had a wonderful stay. The bed was very comfortable, and was amazed to see a tv inside the balloon over the bed. The little extras made this stay special. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definately stay here again.
The fireside Inn is a wonderful Hotel. The staff ensure your stay is comfortable and pleasant. Rooms are great for the romantic getaway. The food is way above anything one would expect from a Best Western. Highly recommended.
By far the best place & hotel of our week-long trip to Ontario. Shower was cool - had dual heads on a pivoting lever! Bathroom had makeup mirror & scale. Room decor might have been deliberate (theme) but was a little country - bed was absolutely wonderful (pillow-top!). Staff was friendly (one girl reminded me of Gweneth Paltrow, looks & personality), pub was very cosy - would absolutely stay here again!
