We spent two nights in the Napoleon room. Very spacious room on the third floor which gave us privacy. The stairs to the room are fairly steep but we had no difficulty going up and down. We are active seniors. In fact it was a good exercise after the delicious and healthy breakfasts prepared by Stacy. It was very convenient... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 October 2016

What a lovely B&B... Absolutely stunning decor with old world charm yet updated amenities. The breakfasts were so good I'm sure I gained 10 pounds just from my weekend stay. Stacy went above and beyond to make the visit so enjoyable, and I will definitely stay again when I'm in the area!

Not too happy with 3rd floor room. Very steep stairs for 70 year olds! Bed was way to soft, needs to be replaced because you roll into the middle since it is only a queen. It was a VERY big room and nice bathroom . Television across the room didn't work well. Sitting area was a bit uncomfortable. Parking on... More

My partner and I stayed in the enormous Napoleon room. We thoroughly enjoyed having such spacious and comfortable accommodations in a fun part of the city. The inn is an easy walk away from restaurants, a wine bar, shops, and the beautiful park. Plus Stacy's breakfasts were great. Recommended for anyone needing to unwind.
