Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable but it would have been nice to have a chair in room other than the two at table. Beds were very comfortable. Had a beautiful view of the river from our balcony with large comfortable chairs on balcony

Hotel's Favourite
When visiting schools, we stayed at a couple of other hotels in the area that were so so (none horrible, but none great either). Then we found Best Western Rover Escape. It looks unassuming at first and kind of unusually situated near some unused train tracks. However, the river view is beautiful and serene and the hotel is clean and decently appointed. Wifi works great, breakfast even during COVID has been nice and staff is wonderful!

Make sure to get a river view room if possible. Loved being on the first floor with a patio to the river deck. Friendly staff. Breakfast was the best I have seen since Covid at any hotel much more options. Only issue was the conditioner and body wash dispensers in the shower were empty. Would definitely visit again!

I have stayed at this location a couple of times and have not been disappointed either time. This time was no exception. The river views outside of the hotel are wonderful and incredibly relaxing. The Front Desk Staff was friendly and attentive. Hotel and Grounds were clean and clear of debris and trash. Common areas inside the hotel were clean. The room was clean. There were a couple of missed spots in the bathroom that I chalked up to COVID staff shortages. They were no problem to touch up. Beds were very comfortable and the linens were clean and crisp. Great hotel for a couples weekend or a stop on a family getaway. Very pleasant stay.
