“A lovely weekend away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Our children booked us a weekend at Domaine D'Amour as a holiday gift, and it was worth waiting for! The owners are lovely hosts -- knowledgeable, informative, and very keen to make sure every detail is right for their guests' stay. They actually went out of their way to accommodate us, since we had planned to arrive on a Friday evening when they had us booked for the Saturday. On a half-hour's notice, half-way into the evening, our room was ready and they were at the front door to greet us.

Our two-room suite was clean, comfortable, and cozy. I don't think there was a standard dimension anywhere in the space, but that was just fine: if you're looking for boilerplate decor and four standardized walls, there's a Quality Inn not too far down the road, but you'll miss the charm and the welcome of a well-run B&B.

We visited during the winter, so we didn't have access to the outdoor pool or other amenities, but they looked fantastic.

I don't believe the positive reviews on this place. We were looking for a quiet romantic getaway and knew the Louis XVl decor was tacky kitsch but thought it might be a fun B&B.

Big mistake. Room was in poor condition. Chairs, bed, bathroom, walls, etc. were dilapidated and needed updating or repair. Bizarre room layout with tiny bathroom and huge unused walk-in closet.

Weird couple who ran the place said there were several other guests and they were full when we asked to change rooms but in 2 days we never saw or heard anyone else and only cars parked outside belonged to us and the owners. You can't walk here.

Last straw was no air conditioning on the hottest night of the year over 34C. Owners said someone was coming to fix it tomorrow (Sunday) and it had been broken for a couple of days.

Don't stay here unless you are a masochist.
