We can't say enough good things about Judith and her beautiful home, Talwood Manor. My husband is in the military, so we took advantage of Judith's offer to spend the night, November 11 , at no charge; we stayed an additional night, as well. We happened to be the only guests this particular weekend, which was just fine with us since it was our first weekend away together in almost four years.
Talwood Manor is a century-old home with gorgeous original details intact and rich decorating appropriate to the atmosphere of the home. It was warm and inviting while being luxurious, at the same time.From our reception the moment we arrived until the morning we left, Judith was a gracious, attentive, considerate, and friendly hostess. Our room was beautifully appointed and suited its name, The Tudor Room. No detail was overlooked and no comfort spared; from the scented bath salts to the heated toilet seat (my husband's favourite!), from the personal menu to the accommodation of some special dietary needs, we wanted for nothing and were able to just relax and enjoy our stay in Port Colborne.
I need to include a separate paragraph here for the food: Talwood Manor's breakfasts were out of this world! It's easy to tell that Judith loves to cook and loves pleasing her guests even more. We devoured fresh fruit with yogurt dressing, eggs benedict with asparagus and peameal bacon on savoury waffles, smoked salmon with fresh dill, roasted vegetable frittata with fresh goat cheese, fantastic coffee, a pleasing variety of tea, and orange juice. Again, the attention to detail was impressive. The food was almost too good, only because each breakfast left us so satisfied we didn't have much of an appetite the rest of the day!
We wish Judith and Talwood Manor continued success. We hope to have the opportunity to get back for a visit sometime soon.
