Having read the reviews before booking, we expected our room to be clean, comfortable and quiet. It was exactly that and more. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly, and the boating facilities enjoyable. One suggestion we have for the resort is to place clear signs along the way. After getting lost looking for the resort in the dark, we realized […] why it is called 'Hidden' Valley. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
we loved the place, nature and the crew. we are going back definitely !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"acceptable and good for both families and couples."
Needs some upgrades to rooms and food. Beds were comfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
We found this resort very relaxing. The lake was lovely the outdoor pool needs work. It was not very clean and it had a lot of duck Feathers . We found the restaurant very nice. The breakfast was very good. The room was comfortable. We would come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Air conditioner didn't work. Found a piece of cardboard and tape (garabage) on the chair when we walked in. By the morning the door to the bathroom fell off the top hingeGenuine Expedia guest review
"A nice break!"
The rooms are comfortable and clean but could use some upgrading/maintaining. The staff was very pleasant, and the food was good! We had a great time. The only complaint I would have would be the pillows....way to firm and stuffed, made sleeping somewhat unpleasant, a shame because the bed was comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great night. Great location. Looking forward to staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything available - don't need to leave grounds"
Excellent - we were fortunate to have our room upgraded - the room we booked overlooked the parking lot and was not the class of room we expected.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just would comment that the breakfast buffet was cold. Would have wished a la carte menu, but was not available!Genuine Expedia guest review
Although our room was very comfortable, the hotel overall was tired & in need of some TLC. Eg, the pool area. The dining room needed a good clean as did the decking area - food dropped the night before was still there in the morning! However, none of this spoilt our 2 night stay here as the location is amazing!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The property the hotel is located on is absolutely beautiful. The hotel itself is older but very well kept. The beautiful view from our room during the sunset was worth the price alone! The staff was pleasant and very acomaditing. I would recommend this to all of my friends and family and I am already planning on going back again. My only complaint […] would be that the bathroom was a bit dusty. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were clean and comfortable. Lake view is beautiful. General rustic feel and quiet atmosphere. Nice dining room/restaurant with well priced dishes. The facility is a bit older and there are some areas that are a bit shabby such as the swimming pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hidden Valley Resort"
Generally positive experience. Water in pool could have been a touch warmer. Indoor pool area needed some maintenance. No pool towels in area was a bit inconvenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the stay, but we wish therehad been a hot tub and some activities to do at the hotel besides the swimming pool. Ireally love the arcade downstairs, because it's really hard to find pinball machines or Pacman anywhere else.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been better"
We were not provided the room we booked. This hotel doesn't have an elevator (which should have been advertised, as this is a major accessibility problem), so don't go there if you have heavy luggage or have an injury. The balcony was dirty and even had a used diaper - quite unacceptable. Next day (before check-out time) we couldn't enjoy the coffee […] on the balcony, as the cleaning lady on the balcony beside us sent clouds of dust and dirt on us. The coffee area was dirty with signs of old spills. Overall, don't go there if you want a hassle-free vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good value for the cost,beds were very comfortable,great views of the lake, but you can hear next room noise. all in all a great valueGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little bit of heaven!"
Had a fabulous stay, one night, for a road race. Beds extremely comfy, great veiw from my bedroom and balcony facing the lake. Very very quiet in the night, just how i like it. Front desk very friendly and inviting as well as the wait staff. I did use the gym, basic with free weigths, Good treadmill, pool was always busy. Road outside is great for a […] run or walk!!

"Eat somewhere else"
The only negative of this hotel appeared to be the dining. The meal was poor for the price it was offered at. I had to send part of it back as it was overcooked and should not have been offered in the first place. The rest of the meal was also lack luster.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok But Some Concerns"
For the price it was ok but we had a few complaints 1. The pool was nice but the towels provided by the hotel were not much larger than 2 washcloths , 2. The room was ok but the curtains needed fixing to close out the lights from the entrance. Mind you, I could have asked about it but I just wanted to go to bed. 3. The worst thing was we asked for a […] wake up call at 6:30 because there was no clock in the room and it never came so we were an hour late getting out to see the moose in Algonquin Park . 4. The staff was friendly but the missed wake up call resulted in the disappointing rating for service. Finally there were very few guests in the hotel judging from the cars in the parking lot and we were given a room overlooking the parking lot. Although the room price was very reasonable ,if I owned the hotel I would have upgraded to a room with a lake view to highlight the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were pleasantly surprised by our accommodation! The bed was so comfortable! We had a lovely view of the lake and hill. We are planning to go back with the kids to ski next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
service location excellent, great food, they need better shower heads, and bigger and softer towels, especially for pool use.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ski get away"
It was our second time we stay in this hotel. The very first time we went to Algonquin Park in Fall, this time we went skiing. The location was great and makes both trip very enjoyable. My son love the indoor pool so much that we went swimming both nights while we stay. Overall, it was a great hotel that close to all venue of our activities and the […] rate was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location is fantastic and so much better than any of the other reasonable hotels in the area. The hotel itself is very nice and the staff were really friendly. The pool looks out over the lake. I would definitely go there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay at Hidden Valley"
When I walked into the clean updated room I instantly loved the beautiful view of the lake. I took off my winter boots and instantly noticed the WARM FLOOR in the bathroom. That was pretty much all I needed!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what the photos depict"
The photos look great but I've seen motels with better amenities. Disappointing and hard to find at night. Roads are steep so in winter, better to have a 4wheel drive car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room decor is in need of a little repair but the facilities were great and the ease of walking to the ski hill was fabulous!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
On arrival found the pool was closed which was a great disappointment as I'd chosen the hotel with this facility specifically but the staff and manager were very sympathetic and did what they could to make up for our disappointment. We stayed for a couple of days the second week of January and the hotel was VERY quiet (There was only one other couple […] we saw over two days) but the staff were very attentive in the bar and restaurant and they made my birthday special. We'd booked Dog Sledding in Haliburton which was nearly two hours away but a lovely drive. Would certainly recommend Winterdance as a great winter experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay!"
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The staff ensured our stay was a very pleasant one. We certainly would recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice getaway place. Room was big but cozy feeling. Restaurant food was good and prices were decent. Pool was ok (scheduled for maintenance right after we were leaving) water was a little on on the cooler side and we were surprised that there was no hot tub - especially after we spent the day on the ski hill. Sauna was nice. Game room with pool table, […] air hockey and video games was a nice addition. Staff was friendly. Hotel was in good condition but needs some TLC. Liked the proximity to the ski hill and the view. We would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a great stay. The only negative thing to say would be that the shower didn't work well, nor did the hair dryer. Staff were excellent and the beds very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peaceful cozy, between-season stay for a mini-moon"
My husband and I came near the end of November, before the skiing season began, so it was very quiet when we arrived. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the rooms were kept well with very comfortable beds, a coffee maker and fridge which was also lovely.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is our 4th time staying in Hidden Valley. My family love the place. Skiing is just across the street. Pool is not in best shape, however the are starting renovation in second week of January 2013. Shower in pool area should be better maintainedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
very enjoyable, staff very accomodating and friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great choice for off-season"
Very impressed. Repeat customer, several times a year: much improved over two to four years ago. Brighter lobby, friendlier reception desk, many of the rooms gutted and redone in pleasing tones with new beds, drapes, furniture, bathrooms. Bar and restaurant entrance relocation for the better. And with rooms going at $99 a night in this shag season before […] skiing, easily a better choice than Deerhurst next door, land of so-so 80s condos. Worth changing chains for in Huntsville despite reward points. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Awful food at the restaurant. Pool was slimy, sand all over the floors. Sauna didn't work. Staff didnt once ask how we were enjoying anything or how the stay was. Very disappointed!Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff were very nice and extremely helpful! Awesome trails to walk on very close to hotel, not far from town at all. Google maps is horrible for the directions there so just ask someone who works there. Even though we went on a weekend when a hockey team had rented most rooms due to a tournament it was great and when problems arose due to those certain […] people who were too drunk to control their kids or broke rules with pets, the staff handled things perfectly and apologized for something that wasn't even their fault. I would recommend staying in this place for sure to anyone who wants a beautiful relaxing weekend away and it is right on the lake and beside the ski hill which is an added bonus!!

SUCH AN AWESOME PLACE!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay was very plesant except the bedding was too heavy they need to provide a light blanket using the comforter was too heavy. The outdoor pool was not very clean or inviting. Two items on the menue which speacials were not available such as the prickle and a dessert. Otherwise it was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was great mainly because of the wonderful staff which were very polite, professional & helpful. The amenities were very good & a relaxing feel was felt throughout our stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay at Hidden Valley"
Overall, we very much enjoyed staying here. Enjoyed the indoor salt water pool and sauna which were very clean. Thought that the outdoor pool could have been kept cleaner and the grounds with geese droppings should have been kept cleaner. There is a problem with the geese/ducks gathering in one of the swimming areas and messing-up one of the rafts. […] Rooms were comfortable and clean. Setting of Hidden Valley is great - not too large and able to get to various amenities easily. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great experience and I'm definitely going back"
This was my first time at Hidden Valley Resort - an August weekend -- and I look forward to returning in the future. I stayed with family, but could imagine being there on a 'getaway' weekend as a couple or with friends as well. The waterfront was lovely and accessible, we enjoyed the boats right from the beach, the tennis courts were in great condition, […] as were the pools, and the view from the balcony dining area where we had brunch was perfect. I'm so glad I discovered this hotel/resort via expedia ... I didn't know about it before! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay very much.The amenities were excellent, just wish we could have stayed longer to use them all.The very best, was our rooms overlooking the lake . We could not fault the staff or the dinning.My Canadian family loved it and so did my daughter (London) and I (Scotland). We visited Algonquin Park when we were there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed the hotel but was a bit disappointed with the maitenance of the room. The door jamb of the bathroom was missing and the door could not be secured. I pointed this out to housekeeping, who were apparently aware of the problem, but it was not repaired prior to our departure. I quite enjoyed the beach area and the access to unmotorized watercraft. […] All in all we did enjoy our stay and I think, with a little more effort on the part of the hotel staff it could easily rate as a four star destination. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful stay, great service and locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Average Hotel for vacation"
This hotel is located near Algonquin park and is a good starting point to explore nature. It is also close to downtown of Huntsville (5 to 10 minutes' drive) where one can top up stocks like drinks and food or have dining. The decor of rooms are a bit old. The reception desk is usually manned by a single staff most of the time. I feel sorry for this […] receptionist as he/she often overworks with plenty of things to handle. He/she has an extra job of handling procedures for towel request and return service for patrons going to the swimming pool. So there is often a queue for normal guests checking in and a gueue for the towels handled by one single guy. Logistically this is wasteful of manpower and inconvenience to customers. I suggest that they have a shelf for clean towels and a large bin for collection of used towels at the swimming pool cancelling the meaningly 'borrow and return' service for towels.

"Perfect for our needs"
Very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hidden Valley Resort coming along beautifully"
My husband and I have been getting away for a night or 2 whevever we can to Huntsville and always stay at Hidden Valley. It is the most "cottagey" of all the big resorts in the area for just a night or 2. It has changed hands many times and it's conditions have varied from really bad, bad and acceptable. But I must say this time, under new management […] we could see the new improvements. Although the building itself still has the rustic warm feeling we love, it seems fresher and cleaner with new decking, fix-ups, touch-ups, friendly service and lovely new duvets and pillows in the rooms. They even have new quality toiletries which was a nice touch. Hidden Valley is no Deerhurst but thats exactly why we stay there. One negative thing, bring your own beach towels, the ones they have are a real embarassment. Tiny tiny and you can see thru them. I would rate our stay as "good" overall. Enjoy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value and great experience overall. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the long hike up and down the hill to get to the beach. Service was very slow in the restaurant. Use of the boats was included in the price which was great!Genuine Expedia guest review
Pool not great, exercise room awful...very little equipment and no sanitizers or towels. Felt dirty. Hotel ok. Dining room adequate. Good breakfast at reasonable price. I was surprised that there was not a real wood burning fireplace given that it is a ski lodgeGenuine Expedia guest review
