Paradise, ice-storm be damned!
Posted Mar 30, 2016
We had booked this stay as a Plan B, after other arrangements in the Caribbean fell through, but this ended up being a Plan A++. Close to Toronto but far enough to feel that we were away. The Millcroft was perfect & no hyperbole meant: fast check-in, beautiful & comfortable room with a view to the mini-falls, great food, attentive staff, super-relaxing hot-springs and sauna. The ice-storm knocked-out the power in the area, but the hotel has a generator in the main building - problem solved! The spa area didn't have power for about a day or so, but the manager compensated us for that, even though it was not their fault and without us asking for anything...they went above and beyond. There were great hiking and driving trails close by. Alton is a 10 minute walk from the hotel and well worth it too. We'll be back, Millcroft!
