“There was extra room in the inn!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Had booked this accommodation after an overnight in Toronto for two nights and then suddently discovered after landing at the airport that downtown was full - apparently some sort of convention. After a quick telephone call to Gil at Walnut House she reassuring said we could come now - so the thought of sleeping rough in the city quickly disappeared! This bed and breakfast (although because of jet lag we never sampled her famed first meal of the day) is excellent and proved to be an ideal base for us.

Room Tip: Rear one is probably better as one side if the house is on a busy highway.

I have had the great pleasure of staying at the Walnut House B&B several times. I was taking a course in Oakville from Oct. 2010 - Sept. 2011 and stayed each time for 5 days. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. I love the soaker tub, it was very nice to come after a very exhausting class and soak in the beautiful tub. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, Gil makes the best poached eggs every.....Milly the family pet is a gem...she would always greet me when I would arrive and also would keep me company while having breakfast. Gil and Barry are the perfect hosts and I was made to feel like part of their family. When I travel east again I will definately be staying at the Walnut house B&B and also telling all my friends and anyone else who will listen. If you stay here you certainly won't regret it.....it is a home away from home.....Thank-You Gil, Barry and Milly for welcoming me into your home......

Room Tip: I stayed in room 3 with twin beds and it was extremely comfortable so if your alone or have a friend...

I was a 'little hesitant' about staying at the Walnut Inn B&B ...not knowing 'what to expect'....however, i am even more hesitant to write a review....as I am 'nervous' that when I wish to re-book a stay at the Walnut Inn...there may be 'no rooms available'....

This B&B run by Gill and Barrie was a 'True Gem'....I can highly recommend this wonderful B&B...as a Single, Female visiting Oakville for a Family Wedding and wanting 'comfort and luxury'...I experienced both...

The room was large and comfortable...the bed was large and comfortable....a jacuzzi and shower ensuite....a kitchenette...

A LARGE MENU CHOICE FOR BREAKFAST......

The hospitality and warm of Gill and Barrie added to the TOTAL CHARM of my stay.....

There is no other place I would stay in Toronto....

The location was perfect too!!

LOVED IT ALL.....

We absolutely loved it! From the ease of check-in to the impeccable accomodations the Walnut House is a five star experience. Upon entering the private courtyard there exists a relaxed and elegant atmosphere. Every day started with a smile and a perfectly prepared and meticulously presented bountiful beakfast. All of which are appreciated when traveling. The room featured everything that was hoped for and more. But most of all it was the sincerity behind the attention to detail that assured us we were in good hands. As an added bonus to the sophisticated and friendly ambience, the Walnut House is situated in a superbly convenient location -- a short walk to the lake, river views and scenic downtown Oakville with its pleasurable shopping and dining environment. In the future when we visit Oakville we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We have traveled to many countries around world and the Walnut House is our all-time favorite B&B!

Travelling on a whim we found ourselves needing accommodations in the quaint village of old town Oakville, Ontario, 30 minutes outside Toronto. Fortunately, we were incredibly lucky to be referred to the Walnut House B&B and absolutely delighted with our stay there. Barrie & Gill provided an engaging English charm and created a warm ambience that made our stay pleasant, friendly, and comfortable.

Walnut House is conveniently located just a couple of minutes off the Queen Elizabeth Way and within walking distance of both the Lake Ontario shoreline and the local artisan oriented main street (Lakeshore Blvd.). The home was designed and built as a B&B and provides off street parking, three guest rooms, private baths, and a cozy library living room as the relaxing common area. There is also a nice English garden with a fountain (though we didn’t enjoy that particular luxury in mid-February). Our room was tastefully decorated, very clean, good-sized, well-equipped, and included a small but fully functional kitchenette. The quilted bedding was comfortable and warm and our private bathroom was more than adequate with fresh towels, bathing accoutrements, and both a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. In the morning, Gill prepared a wonderfully delicious made-to-order breakfast with all the trimmings to set us on our way.

We’re already looking forward to another visit and enjoying an Oakville summer festival, walking the beach at the lakefront, and relaxing in the English garden. In closing, we hope you find Walnut House, Barrie & Gill, and the quaint town of Oakville as nice and welcoming as we did.

Warm Regards,
Dave & Jean, Feb, 2011.
