Family-friendly places to stay in Canada

As in the USA, many Canadian hotel rooms come with two double beds as standard, making them ideal for families. Browse the following hand-picked family accommodation options around Canada. We also like, for those visiting Niagara Fall with kids, Country Inn and Suites by Radisson with its family rooms and indoor pool.

For family holidays in the Maritime Provinces, we recommend Lakeway Houseboats on the St John River in New Brunswick, with their own waterslides and roof-deck hot tubs, and with older kids the Torngat Mountains Base Camp and Research Station in Northern Labrador, with Inuit-style canvas tents, caribou- and wolf-spotting, and the chance to chat to scientists around evening bonfires. You can also play lighthouse-keeper at Quirpon Inn Lighthouse with its 10 rooms. Located on a small island accessible only by boat or kayak, it has its own whale- and iceberg-viewing platform and all stays include a 45-minute boat tour through 'iceberg alley'. Or lastly, within the woods of Nova Scotia, in the heart of the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve, the eco-friendly Mersey River Chalets and Nature Retreat includes Sioux-style tipis and wall tents for up to six, a lodge for four and a log house for 11. Activities include kayaking, lake and river swimming and fishing and there's a large firepit.
