Designed to mimic a European city with its broad main streets, narrow side streets, and squares, Guelph served as a British land development company's headquarters in the early 1800s, attracting numerous residents. The town itself was named in honor of the Hanoverians, a British royal family descended from the Guelf dynasty, hence its nickname “The Royal City.”

Today, Guelph is home to the University of Guelph and an incredibly diverse economy that has helped the city maintain some of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. It boasts critically acclaimed restaurants, vibrant entertainment venues, educational activities, and an array of shopping, making Guelph an amazing place to visit.

Whatever your reasons for coming to Guelph, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to enjoy everything this gorgeous city has to offer.

Best Time to Visit Guelph, ON

The most popular time to visit Guelph is during the summer when high temperatures average in the 70s Fahrenheit. Sidewalks come alive with tourists exploring the city streets and cultural events, but this also means hotel rates tend to skyrocket. If you're hoping to save money on your trip and avoid crowds, you may want to visit in the offseason instead.

Fall signals a gradual drop in temperatures, but the weather is still pleasant enough for exploring. October averages hover around 56 degrees Fahrenheit, so be sure to pack a few layers. Despite the chill, you'll enjoy a crisp season free from throngs of visitors, making it easier to explore Guelph's many points of interest.

Winters in Ontario easily hit below freezing, and snow showers aren't uncommon. If you're willing to brave the chill, however, you'll be rewarded with the lowest hotel rates of the year; just try to avoid holiday weeks as accommodations tend to raise prices during these times.

Like fall, spring is another of Guelph's off seasons, offering incredible weather and a budding city that's well worth the visit. Temperatures remain quite blustery through March, but April and June provide the best climate with plenty of hotel savings.
