Artisan Upstairs Guesthouse
Ranked #1 of 15 Sudbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We were in Sudbury en route across Canada and were thrilled with our room at the Artisan Upstairs Guesthouse. We were traveling with our 7 year old son so were loved the Terra Suite which was two adjoining rooms and our own private bathroom and a nice sitting area. We arrived exhausted from our days travels so we were very thankful for such a comfortable welcoming suite in a great home! Breakfast was amazing; fresh croissants, homemade baking, yogurt, a fruit and cheese plate and a hard boiled egg with orange juice and a nice bold pot of coffee. It was a great way to start the day. We were also really struck by the unique artwork and wood craftsmanship throughout the suite. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone travelling through Sudbury!

I was in Sudbuy for a quick family event and stayed with Pete and Linda at their Artisan Upstairs Guesthouse. Wonderful in every way. Conveniently located, a warm welcome, large, very clean and comfortable room, wonderful amenities, beautiful gardens, and a delcious beautifully served breakfast. Who could ask for more excapt to stay longer. I'll definately go back when I'm in the area again.

We stayed at the Artisan Upstairs Guest House on April 18, 2012. The B&B was absolutely delightful in every way! The B&B is situated upstairs (as the name implies), is beautifully renovated and reasonably priced. Ideal location, close to downtown Sudbury amenities, yet situated in a quiet neighbourhood. Pete and Linda are gracious hosts, friendly and helpful, making us feel welcome. Our family stayed in the Terra Suite, a perfect setup for families or couples travelling together. The suite has it's own separate area, with two rooms adjoining, large sitting area and a private bathroom. The one other guest room was booked, but we heard no noise from the other tenant, nor did we even meet up. The calm sunset colours and earthy designer decor throughout the B&B were tastefully done. Everything was immaculately clean and comfortable. The gorgeous custom-made four poster king-size beds and matching nightstands in the bedrooms were hand crafted by our host Pete. Our hosts had also done most of the designer renovations themselves - an extremely talented couple! The seashell chocolates and fluffy bathrobes were a nice touch to make us feel special. The kitchenette and a private balcony are also on the second floor, with view of the backyard which backs onto a hillside of white birch trees. Our gourmet breakfast was served right on time in the dining area of the kitchenette, and everything was simply delicious! Along with coffee, juice and milk, there were fresh croissants, hot hard-boiled eggs, a selection of cheeses, prosciutto ham and sliced vegetables, fresh fruit salad and warm apple crisp. This is one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed at, and will certainly return! We would highly recommend the Artisan Upstairs Guest House to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Sudbury!

We travelled to Sudbury with another couple to see Science North, and were looking for a centrally-located B & B to stay overnight. Chose this one based on on-line reviews and the informnation on the web-site, and were delighted with our choice. The hosts Pete & Linda were friendly and helpful, our two rooms were spacious, clean, and beautifully-finished, with nice ensuites and a shared kitchenette where we could have our own snacks & drinks, and where we were served our breakfast by Pete. And speaking of breakfast, what a home-made feast that was! The B & B location is in an older neighbourhood, convenient to downtown activities and restaurants, and handy to other attractions such as Science North, Laurentian U., the hospital and the arena. All-in-all, just a great spot to stay if you are looking for a quality B & B experience in Sudbury.

Pete and Linda know how to do it well. Their B and B is so welcoming, with a huge room and huge ensuite bathroom with nice and bright shower, a kitchenette to share with the other room's occupants, a fridge, microwave, wine glasses and bottle opener just helped to make our stay so relaxing. Pete is a fount of info about Sudbury , with directions to many places and suggestions of places to go. The breakfasts are to die for! Incredible fruit, homemade bread and crumble, and a different main each day.( and Pete even asked if there was something we wanted to have). Location is great - close to downtown, 10 minutes from Laurentian University, just perfect, nice and quiet location

Room Tip: One room has a king size bed, linens are sooooo soft, the other room actually has a separate sitting...

I am so happy I chose to stay at the Artisan Upstairs Guesthouse during my 2 night trip to Sudbury. The room was very clean and the linens smelled exceptionally fresh. Pete was very welcoming and friendly. The best part? The breakfast! It was fantastic...beyond my expectations: homemade, plentiful and delicious.

I sincerely recommend this as the first and best accommodation choice in Sudbury. The only drawback I could see for someone, is that it is a bit tough to get to for a solo traveler who is not driving. But it really isn't a far walk at all to downtown Sudbury and the restaurants and bars located there.

Wifi, TV, kitchen, private bathroom: all the amenities I needed.
