    A little slice of heaven very quiet .

    Best hotel we have stayed at in Canada been there a 100 clean 24 rooms quiet best view of lock seven on Welland canal other than the captian of the ship. No obstructions in way saw 30 some ships go thru lock both up and down canal.Hotel was clean great for older people Wifi works but get overloaded if lots of people using it. Coffe or tea in room refrigerator. Good tv channels. You can sit in your room and watch ships pull into or leave the lock.You go thru along tunnel under Welland canal getting to hotel on main roads .Will be going back soon.
