This is a traditional B&B with a sumptuous breakfast served at Maria's dining table. We enjoyed long conversations with Maria during and well after breakfast. The room was quiet, with an ensuite and clean.

This B&B is located in a quiet street just a few blocks from downtown, very close to the main bus lines and a short walk to Parliament. The host, Maria, was very accommodating and helpful, and cooked excellent breakfasts each day.

Beautiful home in a quiet neighbourhood close to downtown. The house, itself, is full of character. My room was spacious, comfortable and with lots of natural light. The proprietor, Maria, has thought of everything!! A shared kitchenette where I made tea every night, books and magazines to read, a fridge and microwave. The breakfasts each morning were fabulous: tasty, healthy,...

We had the loft room with the ensuite. Parking was included and the breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the conversation over breakfast with Maria and three other quests. We were fortunately able to get a last minute booking for Thanksgiving.

This B&B is well located, and very nicely kept. Maria is a great hostess, and a bit of a "character". She takes an interest in her guests, and she has lots of good suggestions on places to see and eat. Her cooked breakfasts are tasty, filling, and artistically presented. Maria has a large stock of recipes, so unless you're planning...

Located 10-15 minutes walk from centre of town and attractions like Parliament hill, this homely B&B was a great place to stay for a few days.

“We had the room on the 3rd floor, the stairs are narrow and steep and the carpet is dated, and that is why we down-rated the room to average. The air conditioning worked fine.Although we didnt see them, we believe the rooms on the second floor have wood floors and would probly be nicer.”
