Had a wonderful stay at this B&B. the owners, Mike and Shirley, make their guests feel so at home from Mikes wonderful breakfasts to a very kind Shirley making me honey and lemon for a sore throat.
The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with lovely bathrooms. Breakfast is the highlight of the day when all the guests sit round the same table and this makes for a very entertaining meal. Mike is an amazing cook and breakfast on both days was different from French toast on day one to an omelette on day two.
All in all if you are staying in NOTL do yourself a favour and bypass the fancy hotels who charge a fortune for a room only and head straight to Merlot House.
