We stayed in the Bernard Shaw room (King size bed) with is quite large and has nice corner windows. The breakfast was coffee, juice, bacon and eggs, fruit with yoghurt/ granola, english muffins--standard stuff. We really like the location. The rooms were a bit dusty--ie the bedroom blinds, the plant at the coffee maker had lots of spider webs. No hospitality extras to note.

This B&B is in a great location for seeing NOTL; we just parked the car and walked downtown. We were startled when the hostess greeted us in a small lobby with no mask. This led to speculation about the safety of staying and eating there. After eating breakfast out the first morning, we finally decided to request that she wear a mask, to which she agreed readily. The next morning, we ate an adequate breakfast. Our room was not touched during our two night stay; no clean towels, the beds weren't made, and we ran out of toilet paper. The hostess was pleasant, but sometimes complained to us about her work load. The room itself was lovely and quite large. Overall, if the customer service and health standards were improved, I would stay there again.

I stayed with 3 friends for 2 nights. Overall it was very clean however, our garbages were never emptied, bathroom or room was never cleaned and that included the common areas of the home. The room was also not set up for 3 guests as stated we had in our booking with an extra $50 charge. It was 2 twin beds pushed together to make a “king” bed and only 2 glasses and wine glasses were provided for 3 guests. No milk or cream for coffee was provided and water bottles we’re never replenished. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable including the cot my one friend had to sleep in. We booked based on reviews and price but I would never go back there again, based on my experience.
