Forest Hill Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 8 Kitchener B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We booked this B&B simply to attend a convocation ceremony in the morning. This overnight stay turned into a mini vacation. Our hostess (Elanor) and Host (Dave) were the most gracious people and we felt like we were staying at a friend's cottage... keep in mind that this house is in the old subdivision of Kitchener. The evening of wine and conversation in the back yard under huge trees by the koi pond/waterfall was a massive delight ! We'll be back. g&n

When I travel for business, sleep quality matters more than anything else. I slept really well here. Comfortable bed, great air circulation, and a quietly burbling pond right outside the window! Eleanora is a gracious hostess, and cooks an excellent breakfast too. The big traditional plates and the lighter homemade cereal were both outstanding.

Room Tip: If you open the windows in the Forest View room, the waterfall koi pond will soothe you to sleep...

Eleanora is a fabulous hostess and operator of this "home feel" B and B. The room, bed comfortable, desk space for studying, large TV (movies in BB library), bathroom excellent and clean. Meals better than any restaurant meal and also came with excellent conversation. Patio to sit and enjoy the garden and the fish pond. Would stay again at this neighborhood BB with out hesitation and would recommend it. Hey I go back just for a meal. This BB is like stay with family you enjoy being with, (actually better).

Room Tip: Eleanora well put you in the room that suits your needs.

Forest Hill B & B is the reason I avoid hotels. The property is lovely, the room spacious & tasteful. The hostess, Eleanora is warm & friendly, making us feel like family. The neighbourhood is blessed with mature trees & the backyard is an oasis. Sliding doors take you outdoors, where two unique ponds and a small waterfall beckon. What a gorgeous setting, perfect for relaxation and escaping city life. This place is a gem, tucked away and isolated, yet it's a stones throw from Waterloo, St. Jacoobs, Guelph & Stratford. Breakfast was excellent, and we were able to sit outside on the deck!

Room Tip: Both rooms are superior to a hotel & have private bath.

What can I say about this B&B? It was absolutely perfect for us! We needed a close to home get a way and this was the perfect spot for it! The house host was a joy to talk with and the grounds and rooms so comfy and inviting. The bed was fantastic as was the massage chair! :) The in room electric fireplace was a wonderful romantic touch to the suite. The complimentary snack center was a huge bonus! I would totally recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone looking for a place to stay either for a night or a week!! Oh! I forgot to mention the breakfast! It was lovely and the coffee was the best I have had in a long time! Thank you so much for everything!!! See you again soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Master Suite, but were able to see the other room as well... and are booking the ot...

This was a great spot, and I loved hanging out chatting with the fabulous hostess Eleanora! The room overlooking the koi pond had a calming affect on me, and I have stayed there twice, always choosing the same room. Breakfast was fabulous, and she made me a vegetarian delight! Highly highly recommended if you like to feel at home, with extremely friendly hosts, in a lovely setting. The only place I will stay when I am in Waterloo!

We are a couple from Germany and select the Bed & Breakfast at Forest Hill for our 14 day vacation. We can give all the previous reviews just right. Eleonora and Dave are great hosts and after a few days we feel as part of the family. Every morning Eleonora gave us a delicious and varied breakfast. Eleonora and Dave have taken a lot of time for us and we have besides still get excellent tuition in English. For our next vacation in Kitchener we will certainly book again, Bed & Breakfast in Forrest Hill. We wish you continued success and thank you again and sincerely.
