“Magical time - great location”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

My wife and i stayed in the dormer room. We couldn't have been happier with the quality , the location, the host, everything. Denis gave us great advice and was patient with our lack of french - as was everyone else we ran across in montreal. Outstanding breakfasts : fresh breads cheeses fruits. Beautiful dining room with music setting the mood. Ideal place for our 20th anniv.

Room Tip: An easy cheaper way to get there is the 747 shuttle bus from the airport. Take it to the end of the...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights over this past week-end. As has been said by others, the inn is very nicely decorated and comfortable.
Michel greeted us upon our arrival Friday afternoon, showed us to our room, and gave us some recommendations as we headed out the door to explore Montreal.
We stayed in the Judge room which overlooks Ontario Street. The room was very comfortable, internet was very reliable and worked great. We parked our car in the back and didn't have to use it all week-end if we didn't want to (we used it to drive to St. Joseph's Oratory (Parking is $5) so that we could see some of the city along the way rather than taking the metro).
The B&B is within walking distance to downtown (10 or so minutes to the underground City and Place des Arts) and Old Montreal (approx 1.6KM, about 15-20 minutes).
The breakfasts were delicious, from the various breads (bread with brier, chocolate and almond bread, etc..3-4 varieties each morning to choose from) to the freshly made eggs. Denis and hist staff was kind enough to make me scrambled eggs upon request. The FRESHLY squeezed orange and mango juice was delicious as well. breakfast also made for a ice time to chat with others staying at the B&B....something you don't get when staying at a corporate hotel.
There are some restaurants only a block away on Rue St. Denis as well.
We'd recommend staying here to any of our friends!!!
Enjoy!

My wife and I stayed in the Amelia room (2nd storey, facing front). We couldn't have been more satisfied, and would like to return.

The whole of the interior - public rooms and guest rooms - is sumptuously decorated in a Victorian style. It felt rich/luxurious to us. Our room, bed, shower, and tub were all remarkably comfortable and spacious. My wife especially liked the goat milk soap.

The breakfast foods were delicious. I believe that the weekend breakfasts are a bit more involved than the weekday breakfasts, but all were well-made and really tasty. Even the breads were great, and made by an artisanal baker.

Denis, the owner, was a pleasure to talk with and he made some great recommendations to us. We met three of his staff (Arturo, Michel, Guylaine), who were all extra helpful and kind.

This was a practical place to stay as well! For us it was perfectly located. Only a couple minutes to walk up Saint Denis Street to view the attractive Victorian-era buildings and pricey shoppes. A 15 to 30 minute walk to Old Montreal, Chinatown, and some must-see churches (Notre Dame, St Patrick's, and Mary Queen of the World). About 3 blocks to the nearest metro station so we could visit St Joseph's Oratory and the Mountain without driving (it turns out there is a large free parking area at St Joseph's and near the park, so it would have been faster, easier, and cheaper to drive, but taking a clean and comfortable metro was a great experience anyway). The Latin Quarter itself is a colorful neighborhood. For all that, we thought the price was extremely reasonable.

Also, given Montreal's reputation for theft of US cars, and the difficulty in finding free parking in the city (meters are 1 hour and cost a few dollars per hour), we appreciated the fenced and locked parking spaces behind the B&B's back garden.

Room Tip: Even though we were in a room with three large windows overlooking a main road with restaurants and...

Denis and his team do a wonderful job. The rooms are in great condition and the breakfasts of fresh breads, egg dish, and fruit are wonderful (much better than any continental breakfast at a hotel). And the location can't be beat.

We have just come home from Montreal. We stayed in the Loft apartment for three nights and were completely comfortable. The apartment is exquisite to every last detail. There is a lovely duvet on the bed, bed linens are of good quality and an abundance of towels. We very much enjoyed the soaker tub. We even found a bottle of bubble bath! The kitchen truly is fully equipped with good quality appliances and lacked for nothing. We very much enjoyed the convenience of our in-suite laundy. This third floor apartment does require that you climb two flights of stairs but, in exchange for this minor inconvenience, you are rewarded with privacy, luxury and tranquility. This neighbourhood really comes to life at night but you don't hear a thing. We found breakfast to be an abundant offering of delicious and healthy options. Clearly, Denis and his staff value food that is of highest quality and freshness. The coffee was restaurant quality. I would love to return again and would recommend this B&B to travellers who like the special je ne sais quoi that comes from a small friendly establishment with an eye to casual luxury and quality. I can also say that our apartment was impeccably clean.

We stayed three nights and had a wonderful time. The service was marvellous, the food delicious, the small indulgences - such as tea at bedtime were so much appreicated but it was the rooms and the decor - Oh! So lovely and romantic! Thank you to Dennis and all the staff for the sweet sweet weekend!

I am currently staying in the large two bed garden suite, my favourite of all Denis, the owner’s suites and rooms. This is probably my 15th or 20th visit since I discovered this gem some years ago so I know Denis and this B and B well! I would not choose to stay elsewhere. The suite is large, and contains a small kitchen (microwave, regular size fridge, and dishwasher), good-sized bathroom, and en-suite laundry. During the summer, the air-conditioner is very efficient and in winter, the gas fireplace provides additional heat, if required. The back door gives access to the garden and a small parking area. There is a private front entrance.

The suite is always spotless upon arrival, and Denis is the most charming and accommodating host. He is knowledgeable about the house’s interesting provenance and has had it beautifully restored.

Breakfast is typically a wide assortment of croissants, interesting breads, Danish pastries, cheeses, fruit, yogurts, and homemade jams. Usually a hot dish is included, often a frittata or omelet.

The price is unbeatable and the trendy neighbourhood main street, St. Denis, less than a block away, packed with restaurants. A few blocks north on the same street are lovely boutiques, etc.

Thank you Denis for all the years of wonderful service and accommodations!
