The room on the second floor was very intimate. It has a beautiful view of the bay and wharf. The host was always friendly and helped with bags in and out. The ensuite was very roomy and the king size bed extremely comfortable. Would highly recommend and will definitely return when in the area.
I really enjoyed my stay. The owner was great, Great breakfast, great service. I made a mistake in my booking on the dates and they accommodated me. I would go here again for sure. It was very clean, Dint worry about my parking, safe area. Right by the beautiful ocean. Peaceful. Very clean room and clean place overall. comfy bed.
The room in the main picture on their website was wonderful. It was just as shown with a beautiful view. I loved the nice bed and the room generally . BUT they use a lot of plug ins both in the hall upstairs near the bedrooms and in the and bathroom which I immediately unplugged and moved away from my room to make it bearable !!! What they don't tell you in the ad is that they have 2 cats INSIDE the lovely house and the smell is obvious throughout. It's too bad because Jane is really nice and tries her best but .... someone with allergies to cats might like to keep that in mind. Breakfasts were fair and meager for anyone who wants a breakfast that is more then 2 hard boiled eggs and 2 sausages and a bit of fruit but it was fine for me.
Overall we had a good stay. The house itself is really nice in a great location. It is well maintained and a relatively short walk from the waterfront. Keep in mind the walk may seem short but it is very steep with many stairs! Just a warning, there are cats at this location! For people with cat/or related allergies this is a major this can be a major issue. The house tends to smell 'like cats' the moment you walk inside. The cats also roam free and one got locked in our suite for a full day by accident as it must've been hiding somewhere. We didn't know until we came back late at night and heard it meowing as soon as we entered the house. I do not recall cats being mentioned in any of the ads. I see some complaints about fees and/or comparing this BED & BREAKFAST to a HOTEL. This is a private home B&B, but the complaint is a legit point of view as this location can be booked via both AirBnB and Hotels.com (and I assume other sites) with different rules/fees. AirBnB has extra cleaning fees etc. Hotels.com pricing is usually all-in. I can see how this can be confusing when someone is shopping around and then booking one way, perhaps expecting the other. We paid under $250CAD all-in for 2 nights in May, for the queen bedroom with living room and private bathroom. Reasonable pricing for location. The suite was a good size with a good view off the terrace. It was nice to have the adjoining living room so you could spread out a bit and relax. The bathroom was ok, but could perhaps use some updating of the bath/shower. We stayed in May which apparently is offseason and therefore includes no breakfast in the "Bed&Breakfast". There were some muffins and fruit provided. The biggest thing we worried about was street parking, but we never had a problem finding parking right out front. There is also a driveway, but I'm not sure if it is for guest use or not. Overall would likely stay again if in the area.
This property owner charges way too much for extra guest per room on taxes and fees. Below are her charges for the taxes & fees on each case for nightly room rate of $114.25 2 guests: $14.85 3 guests: $90.14 4 guests: $162.59 Airbnb has many similar properties for rent with much less taxes & fees, and more transparency so you can see what is the amount for tax, the amount for extra guest, and the amount for cleaning fee etc. Besides, you can own the entire house, not just a tiny room like this property offers.
We spent two nights we were in the corner unit up stairs over looking the ocean lot's of windows very large bathroom Kingsized bed very clean rooms balcony for wine unwinding at the end of the day lovely breakfast was served great hostess nice to visit with other guests Had a lovely dinner not far from theB&B At the Social Restaurant We were down for a romantic weekend to go see the fire works everything was perfect can't wait to do it again
It isn't a true hotel that you might normally understand with below facts: 1. the totally rooms available is THREE. 2. the tax & fee is the highest. for instance, the tax & fee is $19.74 USD for two guests with room rate of $132 USD per night for 3 nights stay. But the tax & fee will be $163.60 for four guest with same room rate and same period stay, which is more than 41%! 3. there isn't staff available all the time due to its being a family run business. After booking, you will receive an email from the family owner asking your arrival time so they can try to check you in. In all, this family owned tiny business isn't qualified as a four star hotel at all.
My friend and I booked in late evening as our reservations at a local hotel did not work out. Booking was easy and efficient. The hosts were amazing graceous and quiet. The breakfast was amazing. Our room was perfect for us to enjoy the view while catching up late into the night. It was a perfect getaway and we cant wait to come back.
We were later than when we planned, but the lady of the house offered to help us with our luggage when we arrived. It was very quiet, clean, and had very comfortable amenities - small refrigerator. fresh ground coffee, some fruit, jacuzzi (which we did not use) - and so reasonable!
This B & B is well-located, not far from the oceanfront and close to shops one block away. The booking and welcome were easy and the room was great; very large and the ensuite was huge with double sinks and a large shower as well as large tub. Breakfasts were excellent, full home-cooked breakfasts and the owner, Jane, ensured that we had a good stay. Nice atmosphere, very comfortable.
