This is what a bed and breakfast is supposed to be. Even for those who are not B&B aficionados, this is a property worth considering. The proprietors, Melanie and Andy have worked a labor of love for the past 27+ years, and the house shows it. Built in the 1890s, it was originally the home of a prominent jurist, then passing through several hands, was a boarding house when the current owners bought it. The molding, windows covering, the art, the panels, the staircase, the furniture; all speak of a more elegant time. It is truly comfortable. There is a drawing room open 24/7 with coffee, tea, juices and water available. A delicious breakfast is made to order and served for a couple of hours each morning. Both proprietors are a wealth of local information. It is located just across the street from Exhibition Park, a wonderful place to stroll and close (5 - 10 minute walk) to downtown. If you like the elevators, pre-packaged breakfasts, uniform rooms and corporate amenities, this place may not be for you. If you want to feel like you're staying with family or friends, then London House is the place in Guelph. A special feature for families with kids: the third floor has three bedrooms, a full kitchen and a common bathroom.
