“Friendly, clean and a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

The Walnut house is the perfect location for those wanting to explore on foot the heritage of old town Oakville and the wonderful shops along main street. In addition, the Royal Botanical Gardens are only a 20 minute drive.
The room we had was on the main floor and is the only bedroom on this floor making it nice and private. It was very clean and modern.
Breakfast was served in the dinning room just across the way and Gillian put out a lovely spread for us. There was fresh fruit, muffins, granola, toasts, coffee (including decaff) and a main course of eggs, bacon made to order.
Gillian is a wonderful hostess. We loved our chats and her sense of humour.
Like many people I wondered why it was called the Walnut House. If you can't figure this out for yourself, be sure to ask Gillian why it has that name. I think she gets giggle out explaining it for you.

Room Tip: The ground floor room is convenient but if you have trouble sleeping you may want to try a room upst...

Stayed to visit elderly relative in Oakville. We decided on Walnut House because of its location to Old Oakville and the short walk to Lake Ontario. The atmosphere was relaxed and we were made very welcome by Gill and Barrie (not forgetting Millie). Although we had visited Oakville several years previously we were extremely grateful for the tips and advice given by Gill. Walnut House thoroughly deserves its excellent rating and we will certainly return if the opportunity arises in the future.

Stayed for a family wedding and everything was top quality from start to finish. Lovely couple Gill and Barrie gave us service and space and provided an ideal home for our time away. Fantastic location just a walk from Oakville main street. Quiet, clean , well organized, even had a small kitchenette that we did not go near!

I cannot recommend the Walnut House B & B highly enough. I have stayed twice (for a full week each time) and I expect to go back. Because the house was built as a B & B, everything is extremely well organized (for example, a small elevator serves the upper floors), and the location—a very short walk to all the shops and restaurants of downtown Oakville—is fabulous The rooms (I have stayed in two of the three rooms) are large and so are the en-suite bathrooms. There are thoughtful touches everywhere, from the toiletries to the coffee/tea tray to the selection of DVDs in each room to the wireless internet access. Gill and Barrie are perfect hosts: friendly, thoughtful, discreet. And the breakfasts, served in the bright and tasteful library, are excellent. As another former guest has remarked in the comments here on Trip Advisor, why stay in a Holiday Inn? This is so much better.

I have just had the pleasure of staying at Walnut House in Oakville while on buisness, I stayed for 6 nights and from the time I stepped in the front door I was made to feel very welcome.
The room I was in was perfect and had everything I needed. Gill & Barry are so down to earth and make you feel like a real guest. The breakfast is lovely with a wide selection, individual requests are no trouble at all !

Why would anyone stay in a Holiday Inn ?
I would love to come back, maybe even get some snow next time as it's been surprisingly mild !!

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.
