I am currently staying at this Hotel for a night. When i first arrived i was put off by the look of the place and the area around it but the owner behind the bar was just so friendly that it immediately made me love this place, even without seeing the room which turned out quite modern and very clean. Would definitely recommend a night or 2 at this place.

Hi We are in an old part of town and it is the original hotel build in 1866. Improvements are a continuing thing but pleased you had a great stay.

Happy with the choice. Olde world building but clean and quiet and central. I was riding so happy for me to store my bike inside. Even checked there wasn’t a function on the night I stayed. Would recommend. Even found some gorilla knitting on the fence nearby 😂 Great River Pathway Cycle Trail if you still have energy at the end of the day.

My wife and I stayed 3 night's in the Masonic our reunion dinner was held. The management and staff at the Masonic were just amazing, they couldn't do enough for us, and they were just so friendly and nothing was to hard for them to do to make our stay so enjoyable. Our room was so clean and comfortable, and the reunion dinner was great, we would certainly stay at the Masonic again, and recommend it to every one.

Our organisation had a Reunion at the Masonic Hotel in February 2020. We had use of a large Conference room which provided an area for pre-dinner meet'n greet including Photo display show on Large Television. Separate area for seated Buffet dinner which was very well presented and enjoyed by everyone. The staff were friendly and made everyone very welcome. We thank owner Colleen and Staff for having us and caring for us. I stayed with family buthose who stayed at the Hotel were very happy and enjoyed their stay. No hesitation in recommending this Hotel as a very nice and efficient place to have a function.
