The B&B we usually stay in when we visit Montreal was unfortunately booked, so we stayed here as it was the same neighbourhood, and the same nightly rate. The owner was pleasant, but fairly strict. Breakfast is at 8, no exceptions. If you're not an early riser, definitely don't stay here! The walls are pretty thin, so if you're a light sleeper, also probably not an ideal choice. Also, the bed we slept on may have been the most uncomfortable bed we've ever experienced. The first night we were barely able to sleep given how uncomfortable we are. The nights after that we were so exhausted from our long days we had less difficultly sleeping, but at the end of each day, neither of us looked forward to climbing into bed.
The breakfast was disappointing, toast and jam, with canned fruit salad. Given the fantastic breakfast choices Montreal has to offer, we'd have preferred to skip the breakfast all together, but felt required to eat it. The place we typically stay at always has fantastic breakfast, so maybe we're judging this too harshly. Either way, it was a let down.
Location wide, the place was fantastic, and the overall aesthetic of the b&b was gorgeous. She has two cats who are very lovely, and a welcomed addition to our stay there. Diane had great suggestions about areas to visit, and we enjoyed chatting with her over breakfast. The previous review is pretty harsh about her character. While some of her comments to us could have been misunderstood as being unpleasant, I don't feel that it was ever her intention to make us uncomfortable.
We wouldn't stay here again, but we still managed fine to have a fantastic holiday.
