As is written on the title of this review, it was the best B&B I've stayed so far, and I've done many travelling within Canada and throughout the world. The owners were very friendly and accomodating, that I almost felt like staying at a family's place. The room was cozy and charming, with a window facing the quiet street, and the private bathroom was very clean and well equipped. Across from the hall, there's a room with a fridge with drinks and waters, as well as home-baked cherry cookies and oatmeal cookies!!! You can also get plenty of information about the city by going through the travel guides and maps they provided in this room, or directly ask Cynthia and Paul.
The breakfast was absolutely fantastic: coffee, grapefruit juice, yougurt with rasberry, muffin, scone, peace chutney, and a very fancy plate which I forgot the name (Oops.)
The location is actually very convenient, right off the Cummingroad bridge, which is maybe 10 mins bus ride from Rideau Centre. The bus runs very frequently, and it's in a very safe neighborhood. I walked from the bus stop at around 22H45, and felt totally safe.
I've decided to return to the same B&B during the Tulip Festival, and I look forward to it. It's an excellent place, for a weekend get away from your hometown. I would highly recommend this place to anyone travelling there. Thank you Cynthia and Paul for your wonderful hospitality!
