Boardwalk Homes Executive Guest Houses & SUITES!
Ranked #4 of 8 Kitchener B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2016

The house is shared between a few other travelers, and it's very quite and clean. Management is very responsive to emails and ensured we are having a good stay. Very convenient for people without a car as a major transit terminal is a 5 min walk away. As well as shopping and restaurants. 15min bus to University and 40min drive to Stratford.

Room Tip: Take advantage of all the available kitchen utensils and appliances

Thank you very much for taking time to leave us your comments. Sorry to hear that one of your groups is not happy with the one Type 2 guest room which was located on the third floor. Normally we only host business people or families at the Guest house but during this month, yet this time we have hosted a few university students because they had nowhere to stay. Their newly built apartments are not ready to move in. Thus there is a full house situation at the Guest house.
In addition, this is the time when all hotels and us are fully booked due to the Home Hardware Trade show. Many of our returning guests have booked our private homes a few months in advance and thus we are left with only guest rooms at the Guest house with shared accommodation.

Sincerely hope that you can try staying at our all private homes when you are in town again and experience a private and home away from home set up! We offer all private homes - 1 bedroom home, 3 bedroom home, 5 - 7 bedroom homes. We already have guests staying with us this year at the private homes booking for the April 2017 Home hardware Convention. Hope to host you and your group again.

Thanks again for choosing Boardwalk Homes.

warmest regards
Maureen



Look forward to hosting you

Everything would have been fine if we had not been put into a bedroom in the basement. Indeed basement with no windows, totally underground. It is a very small room, one has to go sideways to barely pass by. There is even an open area for TV, but all would not change the fact of the small enclosed room and the cold humid underground room. Indeed my teeth shudder after staying inside the room while it is steaming hot outside!
This alone offsets everything others have said in their review. I would have been the same enthusiastic had I stayed in any of the rooms on the second or third floor!

Hi Abigail,
Thanks for taking time to leave us a review. Sad to hear that you had not enjoyed your stay with us last Saturday because of the coldness in the basement room.

If you have stayed for more than a day and we know of your concern, we might have upgraded or arranged a guest room on the second floor or third floor of the Guest house.

As you already know that our guest house is professionally designed and maintained. and there are other room types offered at the House to accommodate different needs and wants e.g. we offer 4-star quality rooms with ensuite bathroom, as well as private 1-bedroom condos.

We sincerely wish that you can check out our other types of accommodations and come back and stay with us again, to re-experience a home away from home environment. Thank you.

While bringing our son to start school at the University of Waterloo, we stayed at the lovely Boardwalk Homes Executive Guest Houses. This modern house with three bedrooms was totally perfect for our needs. The common areas were spotlessly clean with modern amenities. We would definitely choose Boardwalk Homes again.

This was the perfect place to stay while attending a wedding in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. From first contact, communication was prompt and extremely helpful. The size and lay out of the house made it perfect for the multiple families in our group. We enjoyed the large well appointed kitchen and areas where family could sit and visit. Boardwalk administration and staff were very thoughtful and seemed to go beyond what might be expected to understand and support the needs of their guests. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
