About the hotel
Our European-style circa 1881 boutique hotel has been fully restored and offers 19 one-of-a-kind, modern suites. We have veered away from the standard hotel experience to offer you a place of calming elegance in a desirable location. Guests enjoy a comfortable and luxurious stay centrally located in the heart of downtown Guelph. Perfect for business travelers and out-of-town guests. Greeted by a grand entrance and gorgeous hallways with vaulted ceilings, restored radiators and exposed brick walls and pipes and traditional yet modern finishes; we tried to stay true to the historical essence and tradition of the hotel and original architect (Robert Coulson). Being a heritage building we have a grand staircase cascading 3 storeys in the centre of the building (and no elevator), with appropriate accented furniture throughout. We welcome you into this historical gem and know you will make yourself at home.

We had a lovely stay, and hope to return for a longer visit in future — March 2018


Honestly the best hotel room I have stayed in. Big bed, quality appliances, great shower, functional. Really appreciate the hard-work of the Western Hotel Team! — February 2018, Suite 305


Thank-you! The restoration and the upgrade deserves the accolades it has received. Three floors up, the stairs presented no challenge (I’m 75). Such quality and loving restoration, quite common in Europe, is a nice surprise here. — October 2016, Suite 304


It’s a beautiful hotel and we loved our room. Well appointed hallways/foyer/room; good details. Very personal greeting by Manager at check-in. — November 2016, Suite 301
