During my 3-day stay in the capital of Manitoba, the weather was surprisingly nice and sunny. I wouldn't recommend going for a jog at 6am in the morning though. It was a bone-chilling 6˚C with a windchill of -10˚C! It didn't help that I was wearing shorts either... The one highlight I must mention is an article in the local paper of how a …
We had a bit of a lie-in this morning before getting up, packing up all our stuff and going down to the Inn at the Forks dining room for an enormous Canadian breakfast. I really felt as though we wouldn't want anything to eat for the rest of the day! Trevor and I have often wondered what our transatlantic visitors must think of food portions served …
Another sunny day - how lucky we have been here. Walked back to the Forks and had a good brunch and then went along by the almost frozen over Red River. Glenys slipped on a patch of black ice here and fell very heavily, hurting her knee and breaking her glasses. I got handfuls of snow and packed on her knee every couple of minutes and encouraged her to keep walking hanging on to my arm. This afternoon her knee seems to ...
... Mennonite food. I had some kind of meat borsch, with stone bread and cheese, and a rhubarb and pastry dessert of some kind. Jo had cottage cheese progies, and some kind of cream of corn soup, I think. Such an experience! I think the people serving, or at least some if not all, were Mennonite themselves. Either that, or some were dressed in such a way as to appear it. But this Historic Village is quite close to Steinbach, which is a predominantly Mennonite city, ...
... checked in and made our way to our room on the sixth floor. When I say "room" however, it was more like a one-bedroomed apartment! It's not called the suites hotel for nothing. There was a lounge area with a settee, chair, table, 42" inch flat screen TV, sink, fridge and coffee maker. Next door was our bedroom with a massive king-size bed, another TV and walk-in closet, as well as a large bathroom with a good array of toiletries.

TravelPod Member ReviewsInn at the Forks Winnipeg
We stayed here only one night "in transit" as it were, before our long-haul flight back to the UK the next day.
Our room was on the fourth floor and was immaculate; a really large bed, large well-equipped bathroom with a good selection of toiletries and an illuminated, magnifying make-up mirror (yay!) Coffee making facilities were also provided, as well as an iron and ironing board in the spacious closet.
We spent the first evening whiling away a pleasant couple of hours in the hotel bar which featured live music and a great selection of wines.
After a really good night's sleep we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast from a huge selection that was available. The meal was gigantic and we felt we'd need nothing else to eat for the rest of the day! :-) Service was also impeccable.
We did not have to leave for the airport until late afternoon so we had plenty of time to explore the nearby vicinity including the indoor market. Concierge were happy to look after our luggage until it was time to leave.
It was only a short stay, but it's certainly a hotel I would choose again, if ever I find myself back in Winnipeg.
