Our host was so accommodating - made us a tasty breakfast for our very early check in. Our room was clean and tidy. Had a lovely visit with our host and enjoyed our conversations on the front patio while storm watching with him. It was close to the Hamilton airport and very convenient. We would be happy to stay here again!
We stayed over the weekend and were very comfortable. The room had everything we needed and the bed was super comfortable. We had to set out early both days, and the hosts were very understanding and accommodating. Having easy access to coffee in the morning and a lovely breakfast packed up made us sleep even better. What is most amazing is how they helped us find alternative accommodations for a friend. Instead of just giving us the names of other b&b's, they called around looking for availability and even checking out the places before offering recommendations. It meant that our friend ended up somewhere great, too! Don't hesitate to book this place - you won't be disappointed.
Very nice and clean rooms. Breakfast was delicious and the owners are just a delight. They were very friendly and eager to help. They made our stay very enjoyable. Accessible to public transport its very easy to get around.
We found this b&b in a very good location to the Hamilton airport. Room was comfortable and very clean. Our only concern was the steep stairs to the second floor. We are an older couple and found them a little difficult.
From the day I made the reservation to the day we checked out, our experience with Homestead House could not have been better. Even before I completed my reservation process, Bernie answered my questions almost immediately via e-mail. (We wanted a place to store our bicycles and he said "No problem!") Verena met us at the door when we arrived and welcomed us to our home for three days. We stayed in the Red Room, which has a comfortable queen-size bed, a chair with ottoman, two bedside tables, and a dresser. The lighting in the room is adequate for anything from watching TV to reading. The bathroom appears to be a converted closet. It's not large, but certainly adequate. And the curved glass block wall enclosing the shower is unique and attractive. The B&B is a few hundred metres from Upper James Street, which can take you through areas of retail, restaurants, open fields, and who knows what else. But you're not out in the middle of nowhere. In fact, you are no more than 20 minutes from the centre of Hamilton. Although we drove, we were amazed at the B&B's proximity to the Hamilton airport. It is, quite literally, just down the street. (Although we couldn't hear any airplanes from inside our room, so I wouldn't worry about noise being a problem.) As noted by others, the breakfasts were wonderful. Yes, the food was good, but the company of other guests and Verena and Bernie made all the difference. Sharing good conversation, interesting experiences, and good coffee make for a great start to the day. Finally, I cannot say enough about the hospitality of Verena and Bernie. From recommendations for our biking excursion, to advice on parking in Hamilton, to accommodating guests' requests, they could not have been nicer. (Bernie even drove one guest to the airport, in lieu of calling a taxi, to pick up his rental car. Something like that is not required, but certainly appreciated.) If you are looking for a home away from home in Hamilton, you would do well to visit Homestead House.…
