We booked this B&B at the last minute for our one-night stay in Winnipeg at the end of our trek across the Canadian prairie. There are many positives to this property and a few factors that are a bit weird. The Columns is located in a lovely, historic part of town, very close to the water. As soon as you... More

This graceful and comfortable B&B in a charming area of Winnipeg takes the term Bed and Breakfast very seriously with emphasis on breakfast. The house itself is a beautifully restored 19th mansion with extensive areas for guest to sit and relax including a spacious rear deck area. The owners do not stint themselves in providing for their visitor's comfort including... More

For the last five years (most recently in March 2013) I've gone to Winnipeg two or three times a year in connection with work I do for University of Manitoba Press. My great good fortune has been to stay at The Columns during my visits. Not only is the house a lovely old heritage house conveniently situated in downtown Winnipeg,... More

I have had the pleasure of working with April at The Columns on several occasions and the service and hospitality is second to none. April goes above and beyond to make your stay a real pleasure. When we have people travelling from out of town we have "put them up" at The Columns and there is never a disappointment. Most... More

We have stayed here two times so far. For a 2 bedroom suite in a B&B it is wonderful value. April is a wonderful hostess, happy to chat and quick to provide help/service if needed. The hot breakfasts she provided were very good as well. Unlimited access to the washer/dryer was fantastic, especially while travelling with babies/toddlers who are inevitably... More

I was picked up by April at the airport, not knowing and what to expect when i arrived at the accommodation. I was here for two nights - one night en route to Churchill and one night enroute Vancouver on my way back to Australia. It was like walking back in time, to the year 1902. The beautiful large mansion... More

We took the train into and out of Winnipeg twice in Oct 2012. April offered to pick us up at the train station, but we opted to walk from the train station to TC, all along the walking/biking path along the Assiniboine river....beautiful trees, riverside and only roughly 1.5 mile...made easy due to our light backpack only lugguages. April accommodated... More

I’d like to think that a B&B is your “home away from home”, and I can honestly say that is always the reception that is given at The Columns by April and her family. My husband and I travel extensively and always stay at B&Bs. When in Winnipeg, without any hesitation, we stay with April. Her home is a little... More

First, the good stuff: The caretaker is a very nice lady, and her family is nice as well. They have a wonderful old house; very Victorian if you like that sort of thing. The rooms are nice and the suite had a great bathroom with soft towels and accouterments galore. The bed was good, with a ton of pillows. It... More

Completely concur with all the good things said in previous reviews. April was wonderful, coming to fetch us from the station and giving us a short tour of the town on the way home. The actual house is beautiful and we were only sorry that our short stay didn't allow us to make more use of the lovely sitting room,... More
