Our stay was great at Grand View B&B. The surrounding area is very quiet. The staff was attentive to our needs and offered to switch rooms to accommodate us. The wifi did not reach our hotel room in the second building but switching rooms would have solved this. Easy to catch an uber and get to where we needed to!
We were in the family studio (a large room) and I thought the heaters did not do a quick job of heating the room. So we jumped into bed every night because it was quite cold. There was an additional space heater in the room but it did not work for us, I'm sure the staff could've helped if we asked for it, but we went to bed later than when the front desk was open. My only request would be to have more for breakfast than cereal.
Thanks for a great stay!

I was really impressed with Grand view BnB. The rooms are very clean and well maintaned. The security and staff is top notch and they are very kind and helpful to guests. Bedding is changed regularly and toilets are also well equipped with toiletries. I would recommend my friends and family to always come and stay at grand view bnb.

Location was excellent&quite at night and the staff was friendly. I liked that receptionist was willing to wait for me to arrive after notifying him that I'll be checking in beyond their checkin cut-off time. Breakfast was good. All in all, the stay was excellent.

I had a great stay at this facility. Premises is beautiful. Room was nice and clean. The location is perfect for someone seeking mental clarity and peace. Warm welcome received upon arrival at the premises. Departure went just as smoothly.

The pillows were very heavy, I could not sleep on them or carry them around when I toss and turn. There was only 1 (out of 4) that was usable, very light like it was meant for kids. But it was usable compared to the other ‘stone’ pillows. Otherwise, I was very comfortable and safe all the way. The place was easy to find, but in a very quiet street. I don’t think I can walk there after sunset.

It's beautiful, secluded in a quiet area yet close to most landmarks / sight to see (and entertainment). I recommend it for couples, friends and even families... The service is five star. There's literally nothing I can complain about, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
