We only stayed one night but we found this to be lovely spot for a leisurely getaway. I thought our 3rd floor room was well-appointed but when I peeked into the 2nd floor suites I saw they were even nicer! Only one complaint was the shades didn't block the light well in the morning. Tasty breakfast.

We only stayed here one night. We got directions to downtown for dinner. The room was decorated with Trompe-l'œil. It was lovely including the mouse on the baseboard in the bathroom! However, the breakfast was only average and we were not given a choice. There were a few things like the stained upholstered seat. My biggest complaint is that when... More

I have stayed here about 7 times and really appreciate the welcoming atmosphere, very comfortable rooms, friendly hosts, and historical restorations. Breakfast is full with options. Did I mention the comfortable rooms? That is the key to over-nighting- rest and comfort. I count on it here.

Stayed here in the winter this year for one night. The host (Doug) was very nice and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was mediocre for a high price for the stay... But over all, the service and room accommodations as well as the location were very great!

In my opinion, just what one would want in a quality B&B. Highly recommended. Check out nearby Jackson Park for walking, jogging, biking on wooded trails along a beautiful stream. Easy stroll into town and more good walks along the Otonabee River and Little Lake right in town.

We had a wonderful night at the Moffat House. The owner, Doug, was very friendly and helpful. We were welcomed to a very nice, very clean, very comfortable room (Dundela Suite). They've kept much of the character of the old house, but added a great amenities. The breakfast was very good and was served in a nice dining room where... More

We stayed 1 night in the Luscombe Suite. As the titled says this place has all the C's covered. This B&B is centrally located, convenient, clean, classy, charming, comfortable, cozy, and the hosts are very courteous. They offer free WIFI, and a 2 course breakfast, with juice and coffee or tea. There are 4 suites in total. The 2 bigger... More

5 minutes drive from the centre of Peterborough, this is a great place to stay. The room was huge with an enormous window looking over the garden. Excellent bathroom and a very comfortable bed. Free wifi. The owner was very helpful in suggesting places to go and provided us with a local map. Breakfast was superb. Overall, very good value... More

I stayed in this B&B because all the hotel rooms were taken for a convention. What a luck because this was so much nicer than a regular hotel. The house is located in the "old" part of Peterborough where you can have a nice garden tour just strolling around in the evening. The hosts are wonderful, the rooms elegant. We... More
