Built in 1889 and designed by the chief architect for the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, the Clock Tower Inn preserves a cultural heritage of classical beauty updated for guests' comfort with a host of modern amenities. The inn's eight updated suites sport heated tile floors and flat-panel TVs offset by Victorian-era touches such as claw-foot tubs and letter-writing desks. Guests can dine on-site at either the Strathroy Ale House or Duke of Earl Pub, or explore a host of nearby Middlesex County eateries. In addition to fine dining, the downtown district invigorates visitors with shopping and art galleries, or cannonballing into the Canadian Heritage–designated river.
