“Walnut House visit”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Our first visit to Walnut House, on April 11th, will not be our last. An attractive house in a fantastic, residential location, we could walk easily to the downtown shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Forsythe Room on the upper floor. It is a beautifully decorated, clean and bright room with windows on three sides. Very private.
Our hostess, Gill, was very warm and welcoming. Our breakfast of fresh fruit, bacon, eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms was delicious. Thank you Gill for a pleasant stay and a reason to return!

We stayed just one night, prior to flying back to the UK from Toronto. We wanted a homely B&B rather than an impersonal hotel or Inn and this was perfect. The bed was comfortable and the room well appointed and tastefully decorated. The full breakfast was excellent and the owner Gill was very kind.

Room Tip: The top bedroom only has one window that you can open, directly above the bed. So if you like to hav...

We had an excellent stay in the Garden Suite and loved our time at the walnut house. It was so refreshing and the room was decorated in such a lovely way. The breakfast was also delicious, we had a choice between hot and cold. We felt very welcomed and would definitely go again!

Just one night, and it was terrific. Our room, with en suite, was clean, well decorated and bountifully supplied with everything we could possibly need. The house is quite a picture with the tree growing straight up through the second floor balcony. Breakfast was good and we had our choice of a hot or cold meal and the time was up to us. Gill is very accommodating! Highly recommend this for it's great location - within an easy walk of the old town centre.

We very much enjoyed our stay in September 2013 at the Walnut House B&B. Our main floor room was beautifully appointed, with en suite bath and galley kitchen. Gill asked our preference for breakfast each night before and we opted for a full breakfast as opposed to a continental.

This was a homecoming for me so it was a pleasure to be just steps from the mainstreet with all its shops and restaurants, and the 'Old Town' and lakefront. Oakville 'downtown' has changed somewhat but not the ambiance. Gill recommended three restaurant choices which were all excellent.

Travellers who enjoy the B&B experience should not hesitate to stay at this well run facility.

A most charming, cosy and comfortable B and B in a fantastic location.

Walnut House, was truly a home away from home. The rooms were gorgeous, clean and we slept soundly!! Our host, Gill, was friendly and attentive at all times, and breakfast was whatever we wanted, when we wanted. Loved the Ontario peaches!! Perfect location too, a short walk to the main street and all the fantastic shops and restaurants there, and a short drive to the main City of Toronto, We will most certainly be back. Thank you Gill for everything. :)

Information was not up to date when I googled Walnut House. When we stay in a B & B of this caliber, we expect a better breakfast than toast, a few mini muffins and cereal. The fresh fruit was nice. In addition to the above, they advertised they serve bacon, eggs of your choice, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and omelettes and that was not the case. Our room was very nice as was Gillian, the owner. I would have expected a reduction in the cost given that we were not served what was described.
