What a pleasant surprise nestled in Chatham ON and only a little over an hour drive from us. 🙂 The Retro Suites Hotel is spectacularly decorated with funky decor and retro art. The girls expressions when they first arrived were priceless!
There was so much for them to see and discover. Ella now calls this hotel “her home” and the room we stayed in is “her room” 😉 The shower was absolutely stunning and for the first time Ella decided it was time to go on the big toilet. Hopefully this doesn’t mean I need to redo our bathrooms for her to use ours. Lol. The room was spacious and perfect for my friend who came over to the hotel to visit us. We all slept well, better than at home…. my guess is we will be returning again very soon. 🙂
When you get hungry theres a restaurant called The Chilled Cork thats attached to the hotel and available for you to dine breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lots of options for little kids and the big kids. 😉
The hotel staff at The Retro Suites Hotel were absolutely lovely. I think that makes all the difference too when you’re travelling. They were very accommodating and helpful. Big hotel with a small town feel.
I wrote the manager as soon as I got home just to say a quick thank you again for having us. I will definitely be back and I hope you will check it out too! 🙂
