This B&B is WAY overpriced and not worth the money. DELUXE? - I think not. For starters, the hostess told me that I had to pay a $5.00 "administration fee" if I wanted to pay with VISA, even though the ad says nothing about it. The "Deluxe" Double Room is in an attic with slanted ceilings, and is cluttered with way too many of the owner's personal items. There is very little space to put your own personal effects. The Deluxe "ensuite" has a tiny sink and a "shower" that is merely a bathtub with a flexible hose attached to the faucet. The curtain for the "shower" comes up only to waist level and you are advised that if you have difficulty with her instructions, you should shower downstairs. The toilet is under the slanted ceiling, so you bang your head as you approach it. The door to the room does not have a lock, and not even a doorknob or latch. You need to put a stump of wood (provided) behind the door, or it will slide open on its own. DELUXE?" - I think not. The "full breakfast" is MUCH less than continental - there was no cereal, no muffins, no croissants, no bagels, no pancakes, no apples, no bananas, no cheese, no eggs, no bacon, no sausage, no home fries, no yogurt.The hostess is vegan. Breakfast consisted of: a small glass bowl of cut up (?) fresh fruit, some parts of which had been frozen (and still were); stale tasting cold toast with jam; orange drink (not juice); flavourless weak coffee; a tiny serving fit for a child of a barely edible vegan concoction with a small amount of canned beans, perhaps three fried slices of mushroom and two tiny items of indeterminate origin. (My wife wouldn't eat this.) Breakfast concluded with a bland tasting, thin slice of "gateau" that you were encouraged to smother with maple syrup. DELUXE? - I think not. I have stayed in numerous B&B's in several countries, and was embarrassed that another couple from China might think this was a typical Canadian B&B breakfast. I would never stay at this B&B again, and cannot recommend it. DELUXE? - I think not.
