Overview

Cozying up to Gatineau Park, approximately 22 miles northwest of Ottawa, the Wakefield Mill Hotel and Spa invites guests to unwind in one of 42 elegant accommodations. Each room is outfitted with wooden furniture, luxurious queen- or king-sized beds and free Internet access. Although most visitors report a pleasant stay overall, some do say the rooms could benefit from some refurbishment and more reliable Wi-Fi service. Previous visitors do say the full-service spa, with its variety of massages and body wraps, is one of the hotel's greatest assets. The intimate dining room stands as another consistent crowd-pleaser with its French- and Quebecois-inspired dishes. For lighter fare and tapas, you can also check out the Muse Restaurant. After you're well-fed, you'll find plenty of outdoor pursuits to occupy your time. Those with a bent for adventure will want to explore the area by canoeing, bungee jumping, skiing or snowshoeing (depending on the season), while serenity-seekers can partake in beach-strolling and wildlife-watching.
