“Home from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

We spent 4 nights at this delightful B&B whilst visiting relatives in Dundas. We were staying in the 2 bedroom suite in the basement and it worked really well. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen and sitting room area were a godsend.

Lin and Steve were wonderful hosts who cooked delicious breakfasts at the time that suited us and were happy to help with any questions we had. I do understand the review before about 'requests' but we felt that the requests were totally reasonable and ensured the house remained clean and comfortable for future guests. The main reason the house is so welcoming is because it is kept in a very good condition.

If you are heading to this area and would like a place to stay, I cannot recommend Creekside enough.

We stayed at Creekside in May this year, for about 10 days, and we couldn't have been more comfortable or better looked-after. Steve and Lin were friendly and welcoming from the very start and most helpful throughout our stay, readily and patiently giving us local info. and advice about getting around. Our room was spotless and comfortable and the breakfasts bespoke and delicious, with a huge range of tasty treats to start the day! The location was easy and convenient for us and all-in-all it felt like a "home away from home".
We can't quite identify with a previous review on this site concerning locks on bedroom doors and security - we took our cash and valuables out with us (as you would staying anywhere, even a smart hotel) but I am certain if we'd asked Lin she would have kept stuff secreted away and safe for us. Also, taking off outdoor-shoes in the house is a Canadian thing (I know, I used to live there and it's a habit to do with the snowy Canadian winters) so, "when in Rome" etc.
We would, without question, stay with Steve and Lin again and would recommend them to anyone.

My husband and I stayed here with friends as we were all going to a wedding. From the moment we arrived we were made welcome. The rooms are very comfortable with kettle, tea and , hairdryer and towels provided. Breakfast was the highlight of the day with plates of fresh fruit, chopped peaches, pineapple,grapes etc. Yogurts, fruit juice, fresh coffee (although I did bring my own as I prefer Bewleys coffee) . There was always a selection of hot fruit, bacon, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, sausages, and I could go on! This really is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. My friends had the basement with a kitchen and sitting room which led out to the pool. It was perfect for a group of friends and we enjoyed sitting out there with our glass of wine . Also there is a hot tub which was nice to jump into late in the evening . Lin and Steve are amazing and make you feel very welcome and even made me poached eggs on request! What can I say, much better than most hotels I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B.

My husband and I and our two boys stayed at Creekside B&B (in the family suite) for a month while we were in-between homes, moving in Burlington.
The suite was absolutely perfect for our needs. The space was great with a kitchenette, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms. The back door opens directly into the back yard and although it was the wrong time of year for us to take full advantage of the outside facilities, we did enjoy the awesome hot tub.
Steve and Lin are very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The house is really nice, and super clean. Breakfasts were delicious.
What we thought was going to be a difficult "homeless" month turned out to be a good time. We actually felt right at home.
Would highly recommend a stay at Creekside.

The positives was that Steven and LIn were very nice and willing to help with directions and things to do. The pool and hot tub were also really nice. They also made breakfast at a time that was convenient for the guest rather then giving a time.

The big negative for us was that the bedroom doors do not lock. I felt extremely uncomfortable leaving my cash in an unlocked room with other guests in the B & B. I think it would only be proper letting someone know this ahead of time. Their was not safe instead or some other alternative to security. The other con is I never quite felt like it was a place I could comfortable in. The second we arrived we were given a list of things not to do. Such as Chlorinated water getting on the rug, no glass by the pool, take your shoes off when you enter.... and so forth.

We are really disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us here at Creekside. We work very hard to make our guests feel welcome, and we can only apologize if we did not make you feel that way.

I do remember your concern regarding your bedroom door having no lock and, as we take all our reviews to heart, we have decided to place individual locks on all our bedroom doors. We are sorry that you did not feel safe here, but please note that Canada is one of the safest countries in the world, and the Burlington/Halton region has the lowest crime rate in the country.

We only have a couple of "requests " for our guests. Removing your shoes as you enter our home is one of them, and is customary in Canada. We do ask our guests to respect our customs while staying with us. It is probably different to what you have been used to, but this is a residential home as opposed to a hotel or guest house.

Broken glass in the pool or on the pool deck is a health and safety concern. It is almost impossible to see glass once it has fallen in the pool (as we have found out to our detriment). It could not only cause harm to the pool liner, but could also cause bathers to sustain nasty cuts to the feet. I don't think you will find many pool owners around who do permit glass by their pools.

Drying off before you go back inside the house is also a health and safety concern. Wet slippery tiles in the hallway can cause accidents, and we do not want our guests to fall and hurt themselves. As you mentioned the chlorine will damage the carpets, as it is a bleach. We'd like to be able to keep our home nice for future guests as well as yourselves.

You will see from all our previous reviews that the majority of our guests feel like they have come home when they visit us. We are very relaxed with our guests, and have no "rules" just a couple of requests. We like to say that you arrive as guests, but leave as friends.

I'm just sorry that your first stay at a B&B was not a positive one for you.

Thank you for your review....we appreciate your input.

We are a family of four, two adults and two teenage boys and we stayed in the guest suite for one week during August 2013. The accommodation suited us perfectly, 2 bedrooms, our own lounge area and small kitchen where we could prepare simple meals. The suite is in the basement and has direct access to the pool area where you also have use of a BBQ and outside bar. Creekside has fast guest wi-fi, a point particularly appreciated by our two sons.

Lin and Steve could not have been more helpful or welcoming and were always ready to share local knowledge about visiting local spots such as Niagara, Toronto etc. The breakfasts are great and you can choose from full English and/or cereal, fruit, pancakes, toast or just about anything. The house is well air conditioned which is appreciated on a hot day.

The only thing to be aware of us that the guest suite is in the basement and there is potential to be disturbed by the people on the floor above. This wasn't really a problem for us except for the odd occasion when a guest got up early while we were looking to lie-in.

Overall though 5 stars and highly recommended.

Long weekend stay with Steve and Lin in The Roseland Suite. Travelled 2 adults, 2 kids so a larger suite with 2 bedrooms would better accommodate us.

Steve and Lin are welcoming and lovely couple. Served English-style breakfast with traditional bacon and eggs; and offered fruits, cereal. Plenty of conversation for travellers at the family dining room.

Negative: Had I known it was a basement suite, would have opted for bedrooms upstairs which most likely would have made a difference in our quality of stay. The downside: Lower Level — lower ceilings. My husband is 6' tall. Bedrooms very small and too cluttered with furniture.

PLUS: The Roseland Suite is spacious; nice sized bathroom; clean; walk-out sliding doors to pool.

Great-sized pool; plenty of deck chairs and space for a few families. Hot tub also nice addition.

Room Tip: Roseland Suite is lower Level — not wheelchair accessible. Low Ceilings. Smaller bedrooms.

Thank you for your positive feedback in this review...we really appreciate your kind words about us and our home.
However we would like to address your negative comments, just in case there is any confusion about the nature of accommodation in our Roseland Suite.
Our home is built into a hill, meaning that our basement is above ground at the back of the house. The suite is all at ground level, with full windows in both bedrooms, and patio doors from the living room out to the pool deck. The only part of our basement that is subterranean is our rec. room, which is not part of the Roseland suite.
The larger bedroom is 16 foot x 12 foot, which we would not agree could be described as "very small". It has two beds, a dresser, a chest of drawers, and night tables. The wardrobe is built in. The smaller bedroom is 13 foot x 10 foot, and has one bed, a chest of drawers, night tables and a free standing wardrobe. You can see pictures of both rooms on this website
Most of our guests staying in our suite are usually with us for longer than a weekend; and most often come from further afield. We do therefore need (and would be expected to) provide furniture with space to store clothes and other possessions.
The ceilings in the suite are lower than the standard eight foot ceilings in the upper levels of the house. The suite ceilings are 7 foot 2 inches high for the most part, with one small section in the second bedroom where it is six foot 3 inches. Again you can see pictures of all rooms on this website (including ceiling height).
Thank you again for your feedback. It does help us to provide quality accommodations for our guests.
Lin and Steve.
