Lawrence and his wife were very gracious hosts! Their genuine personalities made them an excellent and trustworthy representative of their Inn and country. It makes sense since they are also serious tour guides. You know its good when other tour operators stay there!
We enjoyed their sincerity in making every effort to accommodate us and our friends who arrived a day after us. Making a Gluten free meal for one of our team. Very cool.
Rooms were spacious and very clean, coffee, tea, kettle and chocolate bars were a 'sweet' touch. The beds were comfy but the frames creek a bit when you move. The TV was good but quiet even on max. Volume but sufficient (a pro for the neighbours...lol) . The bathrooms were great! Lots of room and the showers were excellent especially if your a taller person!
The honor bar has 3 couches and a big screen TV as well.
The food was good and Jane was a good cook! After a month previous in India... mmm BACON!!!
The Inn is close to a park (5 min walk), convienience store and burger place (10min walk), and a good mall (20 min walk), and a Great evangelical church (Maranatha - 25 min walk).
The review would not be complete unless I mentioned Trixy...their little Ambassador a dashound ( aka. Wiener Dog). If you like animals, you'll love her. Gentle and loving any attention, she is the perfect quiet friend to all. Oh and the little campfire by the pool is excellent.
My wife and I travel the world for work and ministry and we both agreed that this was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at especially for the $.
It is all located in an Up Scale Residential neighbourhood 10 - 15 min from the Airport by vehicle. Pick up is available from the airport as well.
We are going back for 1 night before we leave for Frankfurt, Holland, Finland then home to Canada...try it!
