I spent three nights here last week (August 14 – 16) as a single business traveller, and I couldn’t be happier with the value-for-money accommodations. Owners Kelly and Cheryl (and house-dog Marlie) were great hosts.
As a photographer, I spend a lot of time staying in hotels/motels both here in Canada and overseas in Scotland, and I’m always impressed with the service in owner/operated lodgings. It’s not what you “expect” … it’s what is happily given, the “above and beyond” that distinguishes such small family-operated operations. My laptop doesn’t have a DVD player: Kelly quickly transferred the contents to a memory stick so that I could return the original to its owner.
The location is perfect for a stay in Wellington and the Sandbanks. Located both on the main street, walking minutes away from a number of small eateries, local grocery stores and the Wellington Museum. And their waterfront location is a great place to recharge and unwind after a busy day.
I have to say that I haven’t had such a quiet night’s sleep with breezes from Lake Ontario wafting through the windows on both sides of my unit for a long time!
Thanks Cheryl and Kelly!
I’ll be back in September!
