Editorial review:

The hotel Pillar And Post used to be a canning factory, and is reminiscent of the Victorian Era; however, it offers contemporary amenities. The spacious rooms have canopy beds with rose petals on them. There's a great 13,000-square foot spa with top of the line treatments and the cuisine is always excellent, with contributions from local wineries in Ontario. The service is perfect, but some feel that this hotel isn't as good as it once was.

        • Group of friends

          Our stay was short and the time we spent was great due to weather co- operating so we were able to do shopping and a wine tour. We loved that we could use the pool and outside hot spring and steam bath.

          We found that the reservations were somewhat mixed up. Four women in 2 double bed occupancy was not good. We actually asked for king. The thing that was hard on the older ladies was the stairs and confusion of hallways without clear markings. Other people were saying the same comments....you need bread crumbs when you go from place to place. The halls and stairs are too much for older people. We would choose to be in a one level hotel next time or one with elevators and clear directions.

          It''s a beautiful setting, so relaxing, and the most wonderful staff! Planning our trip already!

          Overall ambience. We had a very pleasant afternoon relaxing at the pool. We were thrilled that the hotel provided a shuttle to the theatre.

          Safe in room did not work.

          very nice outdoor pool with beverage service poolside

          air conditioner noisy at times, room needs updating for the price

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          The conference center is cosy, elegant and well organized.

          The pool area is a bit too small for the capacity of the conference center. The air conditioners should be upgraded to be less noisy.

          Friendly staff, cleanliness of the room and the holel in general, relaxed atmosphere

          The line for the special requests for the breakfast buffet - there should be more staff to cook omlettes etc

          I went with my husband and my parents with the intention to have a relaxing getaway and take in some wineries and shopping and good food. We were able to do all three and thoroughly enjoyed our time away. The facilities and amenities were outstanding and the staff very friendly and helpful.

          Pool and spa facilities were excellent

          Room location was less than ideal. Constant humming noise prevented sleep

          Very beautiful hotel, which can accommodate a small dog. There are special rooms with a little back yard, where a dog can go.

          I liked everything.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The spa facility is really something that brings me back. The outdoor hot spring is very unique but my favorite is their salt water swimming pool. The hotel itself is charming and warm. I've become accustom to visiting the area in the Fall and Winter. The Pillar and Post is my number one pick every time I visit.

          The hotel was clean and comfortable with nice staff – the breakfast was also good value – the spa area along with the pool were clean and very relaxing the gardens were in a good condition and we enjoyed sitting in the garden area after a walk to the village.

          I stayed in the Pillar and the Post 10 years ago and I felt this time the rooms were a bit tired and needed some decoration. The air condition was also very noisy during the night which wakened us up.

          Excellent service, food service first classs, nice environment

          Costly away from downtown
