“Absolutely perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My boyfriend booked the Library Room at the Grey Gables Manor this past weekend for my birthday and the Rik Emmett concert. The place was absolutely stunning! The decor in the room and the common areas was incredible and the room itself was well beyond anything I could have imagined. We have stayed in a number of B&Bs and this was by far the best one we have stayed at, I really can't say enough about it. We didn't want to leave! We definitely plan on going back for a weekend getaway .... soon.... :)

I recently stayed here for 5 nights with my 18 and 20 year old children. We stayed in the Dover room which had more than enough room for us, 2 double beds and a single bed as well as a huge bathroom and separate kitchen. We hardly ever used the kitchen because we were visiting family most of the time but it was very well stocked.

Our rooms were immaculate and the breakfast in the morning was amazing. We never had the same thing twice. Orange juice in chilled wine glasses, fresh fruit and separate yogurt, coffee or tea, and the main dish which usually had some form of eggs. It was delicious and better than anything you would get in a restaurant, and we were full until suppertime. We met fabulous people every morning also!

The rooms are very spacious but you can also wander around the "manor". There is a games room in the basement, several outdoor patios, a sunroom, etc. I think my daughter summed it up best when she said she felt like she was living in "Pride & Prejudice".

Shirley & Art are wonderful hosts and I wouldn't hesitate to return. If you choose not to go for the breakfast option there is a Tim Hortons and other restaurants within walking distance.

Grey Gables Inn was fabulous, and Pembroke was a wonderful surprise! A nice town, bigger than we thought, with lots of lovely residential areas. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we arrived at “Grey Gables” - AKA “Downton Abbey” for us!!! This B&B was a huge, fabulous, amazing old lumber baron’s mansion built in the 1800’s and beautifully kept / restored...furnished with all original English Tudor style furniture. Gorgeous woodwork and beautiful ornamental tin ceilings, perfectly decorated large bedrooms with comfortable beds, TV and desks - really one of the most AMAZING places we’ve ever stayed!
In the evening we ate at a very good Italian restaurant - Anthony’s - recommended by the B&B owners, Shirley and Art. They prepared a wonderful breakfast of eggs benedict, fresh fruit, sausage, bread, yogurt on exquisite old china....MMMmmmm...we hated to leave this gorgeous mansion!!!

Room Tip: ANY room here will be awesome. We had the least expensive room and it was huge, comfortable, wonder...

This is absolutely the best B and B that I've ever stayed in! My husband is still talking about it. The Inn is an old majestic home that once belonged to a wealthy lumber baron. When I booked they said we had the "library". Well not only did we have a massive old library just like out of a movie, we had a beautiful bedroom and ensuite too. I felt like I was in an episode of Downtown Abbey. In the evening we sat out on the front porch and had drinks. A short walk to the downtown for dinner. In the morning we sat in the dining room and were treated to an awesome breakfast. I might just go back to stay for no reason!

Room Tip: They have several "suites" which I would chose from. Take a walk around the neighbourhood...

This was our first time staying in a B & B didn't know what to expect for sure. We had the Library Room it was unreal, very clean and comfortable, quiet. We found the whole house to be great. Enjoyed a drink on the sun porch. Breakfast was great, owner very helpful and friendly. It was a great choice!

We stayed here for a few days while waiting for our household effects to arrive. The B&B is in a great location for shopping and dining.

We stayed in the Kensington Suite for a cheaper price than staying in a regular hotel. There is plenty of space! The decor of the suite is pretty. The kitchen in the suite is supplied with dishes, utensils, stove, fridge, etc which was perfect for us. There's also a sitting area with TV, and a second bedroom that we didn't use.

There's a separate entrance as well, but we used the front entrance as our personal entrance stairs were pretty icy. When we needed to stay an extra day due to a delay with our house, Art & Shirley said it was no problem! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Very enjoyable stay, very comfortable rooms, excellent location, breakfast can't be beat! Lots of parking and close to several good eateries. We recommend Anthony's Italian Restaraunt. The price is very good. They even had WIFI
