The Algonquin Resort


 184 Adolphus Street, St Andrews  E5B 1T7 Canada


St. Andrews by the sea, New Brunswick Canada sits on the Bay of Fundy. Mere words cannot describe the beauty of this Maritime jewel. From fine dining to eating sea food from a trailer parked in a permanent location, and everything in between. Activities include whale and dolphin watching, and at certain times of day you can walk, or even drive, on the ocean floor.  There are 25 other places where you can book accommodations in hotel, motel, or bed and breakfast places, and then there is the ultimate experience, The Algonquin Resort and Golf Course. We had the pleasure of spending eight days at the hotel. The staff were all friendly, obliging, and genuinely sincere in all facets of our visit from check in to departure. Many famous Canadian politicians as well as U.S. Presidents have stayed there.


As you drive up the road that leads to the main building you can’t help but see a resemblance to the hotel in the movie The Shining. Perhaps that’s because Steven King stayed there when he wrote the book and returns there on occasion. There are many stories told of supernatural experiences and happenings over the years and the hotel staff provide nightly guided tours of the areas that have been reputed to be haunted.


The spacious lobby, the never ending patios, the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and the fitness room provide comfort for the guests. The morning brunch buffet leaves you anxious to start the day and the evening dinner menu can be enjoyed inside in the fine dining room, or more casually in the bar or outside on the patio.


If you are arriving at the St. John airport there are shuttle buses to bring you to the Algonquin. Whether you enjoy golf, cycling, hiking or just relaxing try The Algonquin. You will return.
