I was doing research while my partner was visiting family in Winnipeg. Christine and Giovanni helped us navigate to lots of different areas of the city by transit and taxi, and even drove us places when they were able to (we didn't ask--they just jumped up and grabbed their keys). They seem to know everybody in the city and actually put me in contact with someone who could help me with my research. The room and the grounds are completely spectacular, and the neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful, on the river, but still close to everything. Breakfast is great and there was always a lively conversation with the other guests. Really, it doesn't get better than this.
