London House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 5 Guelph B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 6, 2013

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.

Room Tip: The stairs to the second floor are fairly steep. The large room on the first floor is the easiest to...

Our daughters found this b & b and gave us a 3 night stay for a gift. What a good choice. Andy greeted us warmly and showed us our beautiful room even if we were a bit early. What a magnificent home! The previous reviews said it all. Melanie even shared her oak cakes recipe. We have never tasted better poached eggs and wonderful homemade breads. The grounds were beautiful as well. Love the contraption for hot water for yea.

Room Tip: No pool but an excellent tub. :)))

London House is a great big old home with lots of character across the road from a pleasant park. The bedrooms are large and nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and well-appointed bathrooms. The hosts - Andy and Melanie - are very accommodating, responsive and attentive to detail without being intrusive. Breakfast is excellent. If B and B is your thing, London House will not disappoint!

I stayed at the London House while attending a Medical Intuition course in Guelph. A friend and I had rooms on the third floor. The French Maid's and English Maid's rooms were very comfortable and the shared bathroom was near-by with tub/shower. Melanie and Andy are great hosts. An April ice storm left the windshield of the rental car covered with ice. But not a problem, Andy had it perfectly cleared off before we were to leave for class. The breakfasts' were delicious!! Eggs any style, buttermilk pancakes, waffles, Lemon scones, muffins, breads, and fresh fruit were just some of the choices! The specially roasted London House coffee blend was delicious!! If I had no other reason to return to Guelph, other than to stay at the London House, it would be worth the trip.

London House has fabulous ambience, giving us the sense of stepping back to a more relaxed, slower Victorian era. Our room, the Master Suite with a large adjoining bathroom, was well appointed with antique furniture and a very comfy bed. Breakfast the next morning featured home-made breads, eggs done any-style, and the best fruit bowl I've had in a longtime. And like so many other reviewers, I found our hosts, Melanie & Andy, most gracious and accommodating of every little need.

Myself and two other colleagues were visiting Guelph from America on a three day consulting engagement. Travel delays and an intense first day of work meant that we were over four hours late checking in. But when we finally arrived at 11:00PM, Melanie was still up waiting to greet us and show us to our rooms.

Her home-baked muffins and oatmeal cookies were to die for. And the conversation with Andy and her was a pure joy. The rooms were so comfortable, warm, and spacious. I can't imagine that their is a better place to stay in Guelph.

Melanie and Andy were wonderful hosts to our family in their beautiful century home. There's something for everyone here. Our three sons stayed in a suite on the top floor, with their own kitchen, where they could sleep in. All of the rooms are spacious and have wonderful character. We had a slight plumbing problem which was immediately fixed, without fuss. The breakfasts were excellent, and our hosts were very flexible and accommodating. There are two pianos to choose from, and if you're lucky you'll get to hear their daughter Maggie play some beautiful music while you're there. I wouldn't bother looking for any other place next time I go to Guelph; I've already found the perfect place.

Room Tip: Some rooms have their own washrooms, some are shared. The suite on the top floor, with its own kitch...
