Recent guest reviews

Food was phenomenal and meeting space was very nice. The property is expansive, dio be prepared to walk a lot or share with staff your limitations. Rooms are basic but good. When dining, don't get full on the phenomenal salads because the rest of the food is just as tasty.

Great meeting room for workshop. The layout of the conference room was perfect for the meeting. The chairs were comfortable. not a bad seat in the room... great break room..great snacks and coffee. just a very pleasurable experience.. Great food in the Asher!

A wonderful place for a conference. Comfortable, beautiful, and fantastic food! The meeting room was a perfect size and had good sound and seating. The coffee breaks had excellent snack choices, and I appreciated the healthy options. The restaurant buffet had something for everyone.

Staff corrected a reservation error. Confirm that you have rooms on floors one through three if you have mobility issues. Floors five and six are only accessible by walking up several flights of stairs.

The process for making all of the arrangements and the service at the hotel/conference facilities was excellent. Although the facility has been around for a while it was well maintained and very functional for our retreat.

overall stay and facility was excellent. the service in the dining areas was very good. the quality of food was top notch and comparable to many finer hotels/restaurants for longer staying guests (I was there 21 days), recommend availability of cold refreshments (non-alcoholic and snacks)

As I pulled up to the centre, there was a wedding going on - a wonderful welcome to a lovely place with friendly people. I was there to meet up with a friend who was studying there. We were able to take advantage of a lovely nature walking trail nearby and the great craft beers in town. Everyone was very friendly with a wonderful sense of customer service. Great breakfast, too!

It's rare that a university-related residence has taken the effort to produce a professionally managed property. Good job! We highly recommend the Ivey Spencer Centre and will definitely return ourselves.

Decent property, clean, and meals were solid. Quiet rooms. Scenic location and lots of character. Booking system is poor and check-in and check-out is a long process. The staff and management downgraded the wedding couples suite and another guest had to "donate" their suite to remedy the problem. The staff offered no was a guest solution. We had to move our belongings four times to four different rooms and we had to do it ourselves.

The facilities were excellent. Simple, but definitely adequate. The food was very good. Lots of variety and lots of healthy choices. The course content was exceptional. Sarah Fairclough, the program manager, was excellent - well organized and communicated very well. Overall, a 10 out of 10 week.
