I can recommend this place with real enthusiasm. We've been to some lovely B and Bs but this is truely in a class of its' own.The owners are helpful, cheerful and welcoming and have put so much thought into creating a really 5 star service for their guests. Osler house is truely impressive and is furnished with lovely antiques and sumptuous fabrics. The bedrooms and ensuite facilities are stunning to look at and comfortable to sleep in. I felt like a queen, but cosy too! Everthing is spotlessly clean and sparkling, toiletries are all provided and the towels are thick and plenty. Each reception room is elegant with a billiards room and lovely outside seating in the beautiful, tranquil gardens. "Delicious food" doesn't begin to describe the eating experience here! Gary is a gourmet cook who presents his creative dishes in exquisite bowls, plates and goblets. Every day he created fresh delights and my mouth still waters at the memory! He clearly enjoys preparing these treats for his guests and this adds to the pleasure when eating them. As for things to do, Dundas is a quaint historical town surrounded by beautiful countyside, spectacular waterfalls and interesting trecks. Niagara Falls is a quick train journey away as is Toronto. We really loved our stay at Osler House and can't imagine anyone being disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Osler House is an historic and elegant Victorian mansion built in 1848 that has been meticulously restored. Once the home of the famous and illustrious Osler family, including Doctor Sir William Osler, it is now operated as an exclusive boutique inn and has hosted many VIP guests including royalty on two occassions. Situated on a 1 1/2 acre quiet and private oasis on the most prestigious street in Dundas, it is just a 5 minute walk to the many shops and restaurants of quaint downtown Dundas; the ideal blend of country quiet and city convenience. Guests are treated to the elegance and pace of a bygone time, from the giant and rare Magnolia tree by the front door, to the house tastefully furnished with a heritage of antiques. Accommodations include exclusive access to the front parlour, billiard and garden rooms,as the owners live in completely separate quarters. Deer and other wildlife are often seen grazing on the lawn while relaxing on the front porch. Yet the house features modern amenities and communications. The complimentary breakfast also evokes a more elegant time; gourmet meals served by candlelight in the formal dining room on fine china and silverware, with pressed linen napkins. McMaster University and medical centre are 5 minutes away, downtown Hamilton is 10 minutes, and both Toronto and Niagara Falls are an hour away. Trails, parks and dozens of waterfalls are all within minutes as well. ... more less
