“great for families with young kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Our family of four stayed for two nights in early August. Debbie and Bill were great hosts - warm and welcoming. Debbie was especially attentive to our needs, ensuring we had a diaper genie in our bathroom for our younger son. The living room with toys and dvds was a nice touch and instantly made the kids feel at home in a new place. We especially enjoyed the delicious breakfasts....
As the main reason for our stay was to go to Sandbanks, being offered a complimentary pass to the park was a nice touch! In addition, our hosts recommended a few wineries, which we did visit. All in all, a great first family vacation and the first of many visits to this B&B.

Room Tip: If you have kids, I would definitely recommend a suite - well worth the extra money

We spent two pleasant nights at Bells and Whistles last week and would stay again without hesitation. The rooms are simple but clean and well designed for families staying with kids: childproofed, separate rooms for the children and parents, separate access to the bathroom, blackout curtains for naps or early bedtimes. The beds are comfortable.

(The rooster does crow at dawn, mind you. No big deal if you close the windows, or if you're likely to be up around then anyway.)

Deb and Bill are kind hosts, who felt to us like a generous aunt and uncle with an acreage where they're happy to have you stay with them. She's a superb breakfast cook; he's great with the inn's outdoor features like the chickens and ducks and firepit. They're both lovely with children. It's hard to put a price on being able to relax about the kids tearing around a little bit and having fun without putting other people out or knocking things over.

The screened verandah and several outdoor seating areas meant there were plenty of pleasant places for us to sit (well within baby-monitor range) with some wine and enjoy the setting after our boys were in bed.

The inn IS a little outside Picton. Ten to fifteen minutes by car to get to town, and about twenty-five minutes to get to Sandbanks. But it's a pleasant enough drive and the location means the area is quiet.

Just a great place for a family to stay.

My boyfriend and I were fortunate enough to snag a room on very short notice for one night this past long weekend. Debbie and Bill were the best hosts - both very warm, welcoming and made us feel at home and comfortable. Debbie provided us with restaurant suggestions before we arrived allowing us to make a much needed reservation (again, on Debbie's recommendation!). The screened in front porch was a favourite for us - the perfect place for a late afternoon glass of wine to watch the sun go down, a late night hang out to enjoy the quiet of the country and the best place for breakfast. The homemade bread, homemade muffins, homemade granola and fresh eggs from the chickens out back were a real treat for us. A short but great experience. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone!

Hosts were very welcoming and friendly throughout. The home cooked breakfast's were superb. The room was immaculate. A wonderful experience all round. Other B&B owners could learn a thing or two here :-) Next time we are in PEC we will definitely be back!!

We had a great time at B&W B&B. The rooms are well appointed, the food is amazing as is the pool. Deb and Bill are the consummate hosts and they made our stay comfortable, fun and helped us out with where to go and what to do.

If you have kids this is the best place to stay as the pool is great and there are lots of fun activities for them to occupy themselves with so you can sit by the fire and have a glass of wine.

We made some good friends and didn't want to leave when it was time to go. Highly recommend.

We loved our stay here. We are French native speakers and the owners spoke French with us. They had good advice to give us about the restaurants in the area and the different places to visit as well as the best roads to take to go there. They were very accomodating and made us feel at home. I am lactose intolerant and they were careful when making breakfast, and when they could not cook without milk products, they made me a different breakfast. They were always there to see us off for the day and to greet us when we came back from our activities.
