My wife and I got lucky and got in on a last minute cancellation on august 12. I can guarantee u will be using them as the benchmark for b&b from now on. The hospitality, the appointment of rooms, price, quality of breakfast, cleanliness is 10/10...........period Perry and Gail Gaudet

Harry P, Owner at Pelham House Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Perry and Gail, thank you both so much for this wonderful review. We were so pleased that we were able to accommodate you at the last minute. You were simply delightful to have here and we'd be very happy to have you back anytime. (And thanks also for the "tip". Totally unexpected, completely undeserved, and wonderfully delicious!) More

Lovely home in central location in Lunenburg made notable by a profusion of colourful flowers and vines at the street front entrance. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and decorated in keeping with the heritage style, yet not fusty. David and Michael are wonderful hosts who obviously want to make your stay the best possible. Even if you're not a breakfast-eater, don't... More

Michael and David are fabulous hosts; they made us feel comfortable and cared for. It was a unique place with a delightful breakfast, an excellent value and a great location--close to it all but still quiet. We enjoyed the style of the room--each time we came back we noticed a different artifact or decorative item. We enjoyed the intimacy and... More

My two teenage daughters and I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Pelham House, just a short walk from the harbour. We booked two rooms to accommodate the three of us. Each room had a private bath and was quite spacious. David and Michael were gracious hosts and provided us with a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, oat bread,... More

David and Michael were such gracious hosts. Breakfasts were SO good, I was still thinking about them hours later....fresh, flaky croissants and SCRUMPTIOUS vegetable quiche. YUM. Beds were comfortable and rooms nicely appointed. Excellent location close to shops and restaurants. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night!

A warm welcome awaits you at this charming B&B on one of the village's principal streets (but at a quiet end). The owners clearly enjoy running this well-appointed establishment and have furnished it well and comfortably. Nice extra touches like a self-serve coffee 'pot' and an evening bottle of port. Our ground floor room had a nice balcony that benefits... More
