Spent the best part of 2 weeks at the 'nut house' as it's affectionately known by my colleagues, and loved every minute of my stay. You're made to feel right at home by Gill who will gladly give you some advice and tips for exploring the area. Oakville is a lovely town, with plenty of places to eat and drink,... More

I had a wonderful 9 night stay at the Walnut House B&B in November while visiting a friend. My daughter joined me on the 6th night. The room, service and hospitality far exceeded our expectations. As it was a lengthy stay, we appreciated the kitchen facilities in our suite, and the Jacuzzi tub was a welcome relaxation after a long... More

Gillian is the perfect host - she made our stay at the Walnut House a special time that my mum and I will always remember. The location is excellent - close to the shops and waterfront - and there are lots of good day trips (Gillian will give you good suggestions.) Without question, this is the perfect place to stay!

Gill is a very friendly and welcoming hostess who has a pretty B&B within walking distance of the lake shore and downtown Oakville. There's even a lift to help with the suitcases! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Oakville.

The house is one of the most interesting that I have ever encountered. It is built around a four hundred year oak tree. Indeed, the house won a design award. I walked one block from the house to the Lakeshore Drive where all of the shops and restaurants are in the historic part of town. It was just the perfect... More

With its central Oakville location and an incredible walk by the water just around the corner, this warm and welcoming home, with its scrumptious breakfast -- the owners make their own granola! -- spacious rooms, quaint interior, crisp sheets, soft beds, large windows, in-room washrooms and the best eggs this side of Lake Ontario, I would recommend this place over...

Stayed in Oakville on our way to visit Niagara Falls visiting from Thousand Oaks CA. The house is located right downtown so we could walk to shops and restaurants and the river and lake are right across the street. It took us 30 minutes to drive into Toronto. The house was designed by the owner's son and is very lovely,... More

I booked the Walnut House as I generally prefer a B&B over the bland hotel experience. The room was clean and tidy but the overall experience made me rethink my choice. If you are looking for someone to make the bed and room up or change the towels on a daily basis this is not the place. My little bottle... More

Spent an enjoyable 11 nights at Walnut House. Room was excellent, very clean, and had all that I needed, from lovely furniture, great bed, to cable tv and wireless internet. Food was great at breakfast, and the hostess, Gillian, was very friendly and people orientated, was happy to advise. This lady has all the experience and knowledge to run a... More
