"Great for kids"
I went with my 10 yr old son and had a fantastic time. We did a lot of swimming, mostly in the lake, but swam in the outdoor pool as well. There are kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats on the beach and we used them daily. The beach area was small but never felt crowded. There were fire pits at night for roasting marshmallows and the beds were extremely […] comfortable. The staff is very friendly, but quite frankly the service at the restaurant and on the patio is terrible. There are several places to eat close by and we were having such a good time, we didn't really care. Overall, great experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel not as good as its surroundings"
The resort is beautifully located on a lake. Unfortunately it has lots of shortcomings: 1. Be forewarned that there are no elevators whatsoever anywhere on the property even though it is multi-storied! So the hotel's written commitment to disabled persons sounds hollow. My mother who is 87 has difficulty walking let alone climbing stairs. We booked […] two rooms on the 3rd floor not realizing there were no elevators. Fortunately we were able to switch one room to ground level but not the other. 2. House keeping is lousy. Our room had not been made up even at 1.30 pm from the night before and we literally had to hustle staff to clean it. They did a perfunctory job just turning down the beds, did not clean out the trash or wipe down the bathroom properly. 3. The grounds leading down to the lake are scruffy, the tennis courts are beaten up. Overall, quite disappointing for the price ($150 plus/ night) which is a pity given the great location.

"Great resort hotel"
Got a room last minute at this resort for a late August weekend in Huntsville. We enjoyed a nice clean room, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were very pleasantly surprised by the great location and amenities for the price we paid. Canoes, kayaks and paddleboats were free, tennis courts, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool and […] exercise room. Beautiful location near some ski hills, and a very pretty lake. The staff set some gorgeous fires in the fire pits in the evening, for people to enjoy a bit of warmth from the chill evening air. Easy 10 minute drove to the centre of Huntsville, and restaurants etc. Loved it here, and we are planning to come again soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"On the Lake Experience"
It might as well have been our own cottage. Great little beach, dock complete with Muskoka chairs, kayaks, canoes and paddle boats to play on and a safe area for the kids. Bonfire at night so don't forget your marshmallows. Staff were friendly and accommodating, room was spotless and while we didn't eat there, they seemed to have a good menu. Highly […] recommend it.

"Nice hotel, beautiful location and scenery"
Wonderful stay but found overly large bug in room, not bed bug, told staff but not much concern for issue.Genuine Expedia guest review
Tube television, room is below ground level, parking light shining through windows, décor like the 90sGenuine Expedia guest review
Very relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"HORRIBLE room, HORRIBLE stay"
First, there was a wedding going on this weekend that we were there which meant that the hotel was PACKED!!! There were kids EVERYWHERE (ages6-12) which was really annoying since we don't have kids and they were running around out of control the entire time. The hotel is located at the TOP of a gigantic hill which meant that every time you wanted to […] go down to the lake, you had to walk down a steep hill and then climb 50+ stairs or hike up the hill to get to the top. Our room was VERY unclean-there was tuffs of long hair still on the bed sheets and bed cover and the inside of the shower had hair stuck to the wall-EW! The breakfast was not included so you had to pay,and the food was old and the bread/croissants were stale. Our room did NOT come with a fridge and when we asked about getting one the lady just said no and that they did not have any extras so we were stuck consuming warm beverages for the weekend. The pools were a nice feature because we didnt always feel like going in the lake. As well, we also share the beach with people who own the chalets next to the hotel which just made the beach more crowded. This place was definitely not worth the money! There was a dog across the hall from us that was whining all through the night however nothing was done when we complained. Very disappointed and I really wish that it was better because it really would have made our trip that much better Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family fun!"
Overall, we had a great experience. The view of the lake is exceptional, however not all rooms are lake front. This is our third time staying at Hidden Valley, but unfortunately this time we had a parking lot view and no balcony. The hotel's facilities are pretty good considering the price. We were a little disappointed with the location of our room. […] We could smell cigarette smoke even though it's a smoke free hotel. The bonfires in the evening were lovely, as was the beachfront with free use of non-motorized boats. Great for kids. We'd go back again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"worth your money"
it's worth your money, the only thing i don't like is pool towels are to be borrowed and if you don't return it, it will cost you $25. First hotel I stayed where there are no pool towels in the swimming pool. Room is good, amenities is great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was dissappointed with the old box style TV and I wanted to upgrade to a lake side view as requested but nothing was available. I forgot some clothes in the bathroom and was very happy that they are purolating them back to me!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely get away"
When we arrived we found out that we had a basement room facing the parking lot and no balcony. The front desk were great...we were able to get a slight upgrade....still facing the parking lot but on the third floor with a balcony. Staff were terrific and the food in the dining room was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great getaway with my kids. Had beautiful beach access and free kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, it was fun. Also great tennis and basketball court. Fire pits available, roasted some marshmallows. Very nice grounds, indoor outdoor pool, very impressive amenities at no charge. Highly recommend, the hotel could be a little more modern but overall very pleased. […] Dining room has good food.

"Relaxed Peaceful Resort"
Great mid week getaway at a quiet resort Excellent views of lake and beach facilities peaceful lake Lots to do for kids - tennis, basketball, swimming, canoeing, volleyball.Genuine Expedia guest review
We manage to book a room with 2 double beds for $119/night and thought that was a fair price for what we got. The hotel is showing it's age, but the beach, tennis courts, pools and canoes make up for it.Genuine Expedia guest review
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.

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
