Dan is always the best of hosts. His gentle style and the excellent food make this our favourite "away" but still close to home escape from the city. This visit we learned more culinary tips and tricks. I have also stayed here on corporate retreats twice and Dan provides a full set of meals for those retreats. The great room...

You pull up and Dan is instantly there to greet you and make you feel welcome. We were shown around and shown to our beautiful...

The Lodge at the Old Dorm goes beyond my expectations in terms of beauty and service. The host, Dan is extremely gracious and hospitable. My boyfriend and I were very fortunate to be accommodated by him after finding the B&B last minute. We were greeted by Dan as soon as we pulled in after taking the last ferry into the...

The Old Dorm is a cozy, quiet B&B with lots of character. It's a ten minute walk from the village and a five minute walk to beautiful trails around Killarney lake. Don was very friendly and helpful and made us an unforgettable five star breakfast. We look forward to returning in the summer.

We stayed here on BC's Family Day Weekend. We have been here before but it was 12 years ago. Too long in between visits. We stayed in "The Lady Alexandra" room which is on the main floor. It has a King bed, with lovely sheets/down comforter. We had French doors which lead to a small private balcony. We had fresh...

We recently celebrated a special birthday at this beautiful inn with 15 family members. We were warmly welcomed, served sparkling wine in the living room with a roaring fire in the background, had a delicious gourmet 3 course dinner in the dining room, then retired back to the living room to share some special family time. In the morning, we...

We recently stayed here for 2 nights, and we were delighted. Dan is a wonderful host, very accommodating, and an exquisite cook (his gourmet breakfasts were delicious). We stayed in the Lady Cecilia, with a view of the mountains and a bit of the water. There is a lovely garden in the back. We felt as if we were leaving...
