A location you’ll want to call home

Our retirement community is ideally located in Guelph’s south end, where you'll find a combination of small-town friendliness and big-city amenities. From banks, grocery stores and restaurants to retailers, pharmacies and medical services, everything you could need to run errands or enjoy time with family can be found in our well-serviced, walkable neighbourhood. Speaking of family, many of our residents’ children and grandchildren also call our community home, and for those who live out of town, they appreciate that we’re only a short 10-minute drive from the 401.

An oasis in the city

One of the most appreciated aspects of life at Chartwell Royal on Gordon is our private courtyard, which serves as a peaceful sanctuary for residents looking to be closer to nature. You may find yourself taking your morning paper and coffee into our lush greenspace—dotted with patio furniture, mature trees and bird feeders—to relax under the shade of our gazebo, or perhaps tending your flowers or vegetables in our raised garden beds. You can also take a leisurely stroll along our paved walking paths around the residence—the choice is yours!

A warm and intimate setting

Traditional, intimate, charming—these are just a few words that describe how our home feels. When you walk through our doors, you’ll instantly sense the energy that defines our atmosphere, where you’ll see residents chatting in the front hall, socializing or playing cards over a beverage in our bistro, or visiting with family and friends. We have an open-concept layout that provides convenient access to all on-site amenities, including our light-filled dining room where residents enjoy delicious and nutritious meals, great conversation and lovely views of our courtyard. Dark oak finishes, a stone fireplace and maroon and gold furnishings add to our home’s warm and welcoming feel.

You’ll feel equally taken by how lovely our spacious suites with high ceilings are, which many remark are well-appointed and easily accommodate furniture and belongings.


To help you feel safe and supported, our Care Assist Program—an offering of à la carte wellness services and all-inclusive care packages—further provides you with the flexibility to add or remove services. This empowers you to create a customized care plan that meets your unique needs, preferences and abilities so you can feel your best each and every day.
