The room was a great size and the beds were comfortable. The room was nicely decorated. The pub food was tasty but a overpriced, for the portion sizes.

We had no hot water after 9:00 am. There was no curtain on the bathroom window which was a bit tricky. The second morning we stayed was quite noisy as the staff prepared for the evening festivities. The TV had no signal and the WIFI was non existent. There was a strong smell of sewage when on the restaurant patio so we moved inside. We rented a kayak which immediately filled with 2” of water at the back so I was wet the entire time out, no discount was offered.

The Groundswell Pub and Inn was a wonderful place to stay. Clean, comfortable, great beds, great shower, really good food in the pub (far superior to most pub offerings). It was a place where locals and visitors are made to feel welcome. The owners and staff were switched-on and friendly. I was impressed with how hard they worked and how well they listened and accommodated out-of-the-ordinary requests. I would highly recommend The Groundswell. / Two add-ones: the large deck attached to the pub with a waterfront view was lovely. The huge lawn stretching right down to the water would be a great place for children to play.

Perhaps a tea/coffee machine or kettle in or close to the room would have been nice.

Unfortunately it was raining when we arrived and raining when we left the next day so we did not have a chance to explore or walk on the beach. Our room was cosy. We loved our evening meal. We had the place to ourselves as the pub was closed for other than guests that night. The food was very good. We had breakfast in the room, which was very good. We had a knock on our door: Room Service! Opened the door and saw Matt with his two young daughters. They were very sweet and it made our day.

One more chair in the room

Absolutely everything about this location! The Pub atmosphere was phenomenal, the food was fantastic! I absolutely loved our room and it was my first time staying at a Pub & Inn. Matt was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, and Colleen is an amazing Chef!

Honestly everything was fabulous. The only feedback I could possibly give is that the water softener could be changed? The water is definitely soft, but it does leave an extra soft residue until you dry off. But honestly this place is phenomenal!!

I can't say enough about how great The Groundswell is. Matt, our host, made us feel right at home the minute we arrived, and he called me by name. The pub is charming, the food delicious, and there are several craft beers on tap. Our rooms were lovely and our beds extremely comfortable. One thing that amazed me was that for an older looking pub (though charming looking), everything from the bedspreads to the sinks looked new and was sparkling clean. Best of all, though, was the setting, the owners' hospitality, and the amazing quiet of our surroundings. I'd be quite happy staying a week.

There's nothing I didn't like.

Room was recently renovated. Everything new! Very clean! Beautifully decorated. Owner was kind and friendly. We weren’t hungry but dinner menu for tavern downstairs looked great!

No coffee machine in room. Only a bottle of water. No ice bucket or place to get ice. Would have been nice to be able to have a drink at night or early in the morning. Also needed to use a space heater to warm up the room. Was 48 degrees outside during day with wind chill of 38 degrees. Was very chilly. Space heater did work but didn’t feel safe having it on while we slept, so we shut it off.

We booked this one-night reservation on short notice and were delighted! The owners are a talented young couple with great vision and what seems to be boundless energy and creativity. Our room was beautifully furnished and decorated with a keen eye for good design and aesthetics, right down to the breakfast tray! Great hospitality and a lovely restaurant, which is clearly a community hub.

I’m only sorry that the current shortage of labor has hindered some of the community events they like to host. It wouldn’t have affected us, however.

The owners went above and beyond with making food available, despite there being a private function. Upbeat and friendly, despite dealing with the shortage of help that’s rife in the industry now. Wish we could’ve been there on a night that the pub was open properly.

There is nothing about the place we disliked.

The Groundswell is beautifully situated on the waterfront with access to a rock beach which makes for a pretty walk. Our room, the paperback writer, was very spacious and overlooked the water. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean. We had a nice, relaxing one-night stay…. Definitely a hidden gem!
