Where to stay in Peterborough

Peterborough tourism relies heavily on the surrounding nature, so most of its accommodations sit outside the city center itself. Your best bet is to look for one of the mid-range inns lining either bank of the Otonabee River, where you'll have easy access to the city's pleasant parks. If you want something with a bit more character, look for private vacation rentals offering river views.
