A Hidden Gem Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 5 Windsor B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Breakfast was provided at desired time even though the other couple chose another time, good sightseeing tips given and pointers for the evening meal, everything was fine. The room was a great retreat and the porch was pleasant.

Barbe and Jim were very sweet, welcome and accomodating and the location is perfect. There is easy access to food and the waterfront. The coffee and company were excellent. We got to try a few different rooms. Of them all I would definitely reccomend the loft suite. With the small eating nook and the window seat it was very quaint. The beds were very comfortable and everything was clean and tidy. We even got to sit out on the front porch as a storm rolled in. We will definitely stay again when we go back.

Room Tip: The suites would be the way to go.

We run a small business and need to be in Windsor once a year at the start of the spring. We ALWAYS stay at Kirk's B&B. Jim and Barbe are lovely people and go out of their way to accommodate their guests. Their breakfasts are to die for, but healthy and filling at the same time. Never in the 5 years that we've been doing our trade show in Windsor have we ever thought of staying someplace else. We even brought our kids and my in-laws on our last stay and took up the entire second floor. Great rooms. Fantastic beds. And a balcony to die for on a spring night. Love!

Room Tip: If you like to spend time on a balcony after a long day, ask for the Green Room.

I have stayed at Kirk's Bed and Breakfast several times and each time, I have been very satisfied. The home is lovely and is located on a quiet tree lined street in old Windsor close to the river. The rooms are very clean and private and the beds are nice and comfortable. Their breakfast is really tasty and I have especially enjoyed the fresh fruit salad! The Kirk's are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is relaxed and easy going. I would definitely love to stay here again when next in Windsor.

We stayed in the green suite and we have not had such a big area to stay in. It had a nice bathroom, sitting room, bedroom and another sitting room. If the weather had been warmer we could of sat outside on the deck. We loved it. Everything was clean and very comfortable. The Kirks were very nice and the breakfast was delicious!

Room Tip: The Green Suite was great

I have been a long time neighbour of the Kirks'. Luckily they have been able to help me when I have had to many house guests to accommodate. Their house has been a welcome "inn". My friends who have stayed all raved about their relaxing home, great breakfasts and hospitality. Some have come again and stayed a few times more and consider it a great treat when visiting Windsor.

Room Tip: Take the green suite. Great light. If it was Firework night, it would have an incredible view from...

We booked a room as we were attending a concert in Windsor at a local casino. We found the B & B on tripadvisor and when I emailed the owner, the smallest room was the only room left. We booked it for $89, tax included, breakfast included. The home itself is a small, older home with two entrances, one to the main portion of the B & B, with a small living room, dining room, and kitchen, while the second door leads to two of the guest rooms. I would not recommend anyone with mobility issues to stay here, as the stairs that go up to the rooms are very narrow and steep, in addition to a back staircase that leads you to the kitchen for breakfast. I did not notice this, but my husband noted a large spiderweb on the outside door of the suite adjacent to ours. He assumes it was the door to the suite as it was the only other door beside ours.

I was greeted by the husband when we arrived and he was friendly and helpful. We were able to park our car in the driveway that could accommodate about 4 cars. The B & B itself was just a few kilometres away from where we needed to be, which was handy.

Our room was very small, as expected/advertised. It contained a queen bed that provided a very comfortable sleep. There was a night table with a lamp, and a small desk. One door leads to the bedroom, but another door leads you out of the bedroom to a shared hallway and that is how you access the bathroom. The bathroom and bedroom are exactly as pictured on tripadvisor, small, retro like your grandmother's house, and very basic. There was no storage in the bedroom, but a small bench that we rested our bags on. I would not stay here if I were in Windsor for more than one night as it was too small for a longer stay. It suited our needs for one night as we were just here to sleep.

This is an average, basic place to stay if you need a place to rest your head for one night. There are no frills here. I did manage to see the other, very large suite beside our tiny room. It was comprised of 3 rooms and a bathroom. It was quite nice. If you enjoy hanging out in B & B's in-between your sightseeing, I am not sure that this is the place for you as the common area to do so is very small and not really set up as we have seen other B & B's.

Breakfast comprised of fruit salad, coffee, tea, orange juice, english muffins, frittata, and cereal and milk for me, as I do not eat eggs. There were also some good chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Pretty standard breakfast, nothing fancy. My husband commented that his frittata was "excellent".

I would be tempted to explore other options, if returning to Windsor. I think next time we would stay on the riverside to be closer to the casino.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the smallest room. Choose the suite as it is only a few dollars more.
