The home is filled with beautiful antiques; every corner is a feast for the eyes.The breakfast was a culinary delight. Rick and Antja are wonderful hosts. I stayed in the Hunt room. The bed was very comfortable; the ensuite bathroom was spacious and modern. High speed internet was available. Every evening, I arrived "home" to find a bottle of water,... More

This epitomizes what a B & B should be. It is a beautifully authentic period home with all of the woodwork and stained glass you would expect. The owners are charming, friendly and accommodating while still providing you with as much privacy as you desire. It is a five minute leisurely walk to downtown, (there isn't a whole lot to... More

We're repeat guests. The owners are very accommodating and friendly . The home is spotless and in a good location. You'll find chilled water on ice and a snack in your room upon arrival. Breakfast was very good and the owners were able to arrange an early sitting so we could leave early. We'll always stay here when in Chatham.

My wife and I stayed here for a quiet evening after a week of business in Toronto. We found this B&B to be outstanding. The entire house was spotless and well decorated with antique charm. We arrived earlier than expected but were greeted warmly, given a tour of the house, and shown to our room. Snacks of pastries and bottled... More

From the quiet location near the centre, the Victorian atmosphere, to the gracious and helpful hosts this was one of the best B&Bs we've encountered in our global travels. The Hunt Room was large, spotless and well equipped. During our four night stay we enjoyed varied and satisfying breakfasts made with fresh local ingredients. Complimentary water and baked goodies in... More

On our road tour through southern Ontario, we stopped at this 1896 Victorian landmark B &B, and it was just wonderful! We stayed in the Backstage Room, the largest bedroom, that featured a chiropractic mattress on the 4-poster bed, a Jacuzzi tub/shower with a sky-light, and a north-side view of the Duchess' gardens below. The original features of house were... More

Very warm and fuzzy place to stay. Everything was just as it should be in a bed & breakfast. Their antique collection is really interesting. The soaker tub was great. The bed was comfy. The hosts were warm and friendly.

This is my first stay in a B&B and it was just amazing!!! My colleague and I are here for business and we went out this evening to explore downtown Chatham. When we returned, we noticed so many little details. Andja and Rick had provided little cookies on a tray and left a bottle of water on ice in our... More

We had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at the Duchess. The owners have justifiably been recognised for bringing this house back to the splendour of it's early days. The interiors are a visual delight, filled with interesting period pieces and spectacular stained glass windows. We stayed in the comfortable Hunt Room with en suite and found it to be... More
