“A wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed June 3, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Al & Sonja are very welcoming. They are very knowledgeable about local eateries, craft beer locations, biking trails and Hamilton sights. The room is spacious with a lounge area and a welcoming bottle of wine. Robes and slippers are provided for your comfort. We stayed for two nights and had tasty breakfasts both mornings. Lots of fresh fruit and options on tea, coffee, gluten free choices. Sonja's Sensations are also excellent, if you're looking for handmade cards or jewellery check out her creations. Definitely worth going back to next time we stay in Hamilton.

“Great place to recharge the batteries”
Reviewed May 15, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We've stayed with Al and Sonja three times and will stay with them again in the future.

The location is perfect for access to both Hamilton Downtown and Hamilton Mountain.

The breakfast is delicious and creative. Having our hosts preparing breakfast in front of us, and tending to our coffee needs, is a real treat.

The bedroom with ensuite bath and living room is an indulgence.

We'll be back!

“Fantastic place to stay-like living at home with great hospitality and welcome”
Reviewed April 3, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Al and Sonja treat you are like you area a king-just like you are enjoying the hospitality of being in your own home. Fantastic breakfasts in terms of variety and gourmet taste. Every meal was a delicious adventure. How many B and B's can you say that about!

They are welcome to assist you in enjoying the sight and sounds of Hamilton, and very helpful in terms of suggestions and ideas in that regard. Both have a great sense of humour !

The room is well laid out with comfortable bed, desk for working on and a separate room with TC, coffee maker and fridge, and several windows to let the fresh air in, and sunny rays.

Easy transportation to all parts of Hamilton-as on about 7 bus routes which can take you in five minutes to downtown and great restaurants there and elsewhere in the City

I would highly recommend.

“Like Visiting Old Friends”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Al and Sonja are warm and welcoming hosts. Their house has an open floor plan, a sunny area where scrumptious breakfasts are served and an inviting deck. The one guest suite, up two steep flights of stairs, has a sitting area, in addition to the usual bed and bath rooms. I particularly liked the art books and local travel brochures in the suite as well as the fine bed linens. When asked, Al and Sonja gave us helpful travel advice and scenic routes to take when visiting the surrounding area.

“Found Canadian Cousins”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our one-night stay in Sonja's and Al's lovely home couldn't have been more enjoyable! From the peaceful garden in the front of the historic home to the suite with every convenience imaginable! This is a well-traveled, interesting couple who make you feel totally at home. The breakfast was delicious and healthy! Sonja and Al both came to Canada as children from Holland, and they give new meaning to the term "Dutch Treat" with their generosity and kindliness. Don't miss this B&B!
