Very strange experience, feels like being in a nunnery, hospital and retirement home all in one. The carpets definitely need ripped out, they are gross and stained and our room had an unpleasant odor. The bathroom had metal trays that were probably original and I do not want to know what was on them before. They also don't provide shampoo or conditioner which is fairly normal for hotels especially if you're paying over $100 per night for a room. No main floor lobby, ripped up furniture in lobby area, air conditioner in our room was very dirty and didn't work, shower made a loud screaming sound, TV is smallest I've seen in a hotel, balcony didn't even have a chair on it to sit on, door didn't have a security chain lock. I am quite sure this place was a nursing home before it was a hotel and they did not do nearly enough to change it into a hotel.

From the outset, Travellers must clearly understand this facility is a re-purposed Hospital/Senior's Residence. Pictures showing this to be a "Resort" like facility will be disappointed when they arrive to a building looking like a typical Hospital. And this is reinforced as soon as you enter and the smell of Hospital antiseptic hits you. That's if your GPS can find it. Located off the main road signs to the Guest House do not stand out among the other signs for Sisters of St. Joseph's buildings.
However once there, it does cover the basics of any shared "Dorm" room facility. Rooms are clean and generally comfortable. There is a communal kitchen with two fridges shared by all 30 plus guests. So expect surprises when you open one.
Staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Men's and Ladies restrooms are at opposite ends. So Men should ask for Rooms 201 to 218 while Ladies should request Rooms 220 to 234.

I stayed at the Guest House for two weeks and I loved it! All the staff were amazing! Super friendly and helpful! Any questions I had or queries they were quick to help!
It's in a great area with beautiful parks near by! There are a few bus stops very close by so traveling was easy as I didn't have a car.
The shared bathroom was always clean and tidy. As was the shared kitchen which was also great, with large fridges provided to fit everyone's food in!
Would definitely stay again!
Thank you!

Stayed there one night because I had a cycling event nearby in London. Don't expect anything fancy or any extras, but the place and the room were clean, wifi works well and is fast, bed was reasonably comfy and it does the job if you're just looking for a place to crash. You can park for free at the hotel, and it's just a few kms from the "downtown" area of London.

This is Wed. July 4, 2018. WE had to come to the University Hospital in Londof for some medical tests which were scheduled for 8am and would require a 2 hour or more of a drive from our home in Leamington so we decided to book a room at this place which is located just across the highway and within a short walking distance apart. The Guest House in now located in a section of the very large historic facility that used to be the home of the St. Joseph order of Catholic nuns many many years ago. Most of the entire complex has been turned into various business interest including a retirement residence, fitness facility and the Guest House. These lodging rooms have been transformed into a sort of a hospice hotel type facility. We had a room with a queen size bed and a 1/2 bath, small flat screen TV and air conditioning. The actual entrance to the Guest House is not entered through the actual address listed on the internet, rather is it around the rear of the complex off Windermere Road rather than Richmond St. We were very comfortable in our room and there is a large lounge with sofa and comfortable chairs and large flat screen TV at the end of the hallway on the third floor. There are several different types of room layouts with some having no private bath to others with 1/2 baths and others with full baths. There is not food or restaurant facility on the premise. In the morning we left out van in the rear parking area and did a 10 minute walk from the Guest House to the main entrance to University Hospital. This place is really convenient to anyone visiting family or friends in the hospital for a day or several. .
