The location is perfect--just a block or two to everything. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean, and the linens and amenities are very nice. There's a coffee-maker for early morning coffee. But you can find that in a lot of places. Carlotta and Kash make the difference. These are the loveliest people you'll ever meet, and they are truly concerned that everything is just perfect for you, including the astonishing breakfasts. We were there for a program at the Shaw Festival which started at 9:30 each morning. Breakfast at Carlotta's starts any time you wish from 8:30 until 10:00, but that wouldn't have allowed enough time! Carlotta started our breakfasts at 8:15, but we barely made our program each of the three days. Fresh fruit (with yogurt if you wish) to start, plus fresh juice. Coffee or cappucino. Fresh bread with butter and jams. Crostini (three different kinds). Then an egg dish (different each morning) and finally dessert (gelato from their shop with the Yellow awning). This is not breakfast, it's a gourmet Italian brunch which will feed you for the whole day. Wonderful and delicious. We were especially lucky as Carlott's very perky mother (age 87) is in town for an extended visit. She's got an English tutor and is simply delightful as she uses her new language to communicate with you. Very highly recommended.
