Can’t afford the time or expense to head down south this March Break? Looking for an affordable last-minute staycation for your family — one that will keep the kids entertained?
Once again this year, Holiday Inn Peterborough-Waterfront is offering its popular pirate-themed March Break package, running from Friday, March 8th up to and including Saturday, March 16th.
If you book your stay during March Break, your family can experience a pirate adventure right in downtown Peterborough.
Selected rooms are available at a discounted rate, starting at $119 per night. And what’s more, when you stay at the Holiday Inn, kids under the age of 18 stay free when sharing a room with their parents (up to two kids when sharing a room with up to two adults).
Families will receive a pirate loot bag upon arrival. During your stay, kids can search for hidden pirate treasure with a scavenger hunt. Guests who dress up like pirates will also have a chance to win pirate-themed prizes.
You don’t have to head to the Caribbean to enjoy a swim in the ocean: you can have fun in the Holiday Inn’s unique indoor/outdoor saltwater pool.
There will also be family movies screened every night in the pool area during March Break.
Kids will also enjoy the special pirate-themed breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus at the newly renovated Riverside Grill (“Riverside Cove” for the pirates) during March Break. Who can resist Pirate Pancakes with Bacon, or a Privateer Cheeseburger with Fries? (These are just two of the options available on the kids menu).
Parents can save some loot too: kids under 12 years of age eat for free in the hotel’s restaurant! (Registered guests only, limited to four children per dining family, or two children per dining parent; parents must order at least one main course from the regular menu.)
To complete the experience, the hotel will be decorated in a pirate theme and many staff will be dressed up in pirate costumes during March Break.
“I took my daughters to this hotel for a couple of nights during the March Break,” writes one guest on TripAdvisor. “They had a blast! The pool area was perfect — nice and quiet in the early afternoon and then busy with fun activities (movie night) in the evening.
“They enjoyed the pirate-themed scavenger hunt and treasure chest in the restaurant. The food was amazing — and we really appreciated that kids ate free. Staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return to this hotel!”
And if you’re looking for family fun outside of the hotel, the central location of Holiday Inn Peterborough-Waterfront gives you easy access to many nearby attractions including the Art Gallery of Peterborough, The Canadian Canoe Museum, the Peterborough Lift Lock (including free skating on the Trent canal), Peterborough Museum & Archives, and much more.
