We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Columns! April was great & so helpful with recommendations for sites & attractions. The breakfasts were BEYOND believeable! We couldn't believe the spread of food & that was only the starters. The mains were to die for & a fresh idea each day. We stayed in the Crystal Heeg suite & the...

Recently stayed at this lovely old mansion in a residential neighborhood on the Assiniboine River. The room (Henry Moore) was big, well decorated, huge ensuite bathroom, great linens and quiet. The breakfast included was more than plentiful and all very good. Although some elements could use some freshening up what bothered me most was the fact that there are 3...

The hosts are very warm and welcoming, and the house itself has incredible history and charm. Our bed actually heated up, which was nice when the weather was so cold. There is free internet access in an office room, and an assortment of DVDs if you want to have a night in. Our room had a balcony that would have...

We had the joy of staying here when we visited Blessed Vasyl Shrine. April has the gift of hospitality plus! Her and her staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The beds are luxurious and it is so quiet at night you can almost hear the snow fall. Her breakfast buffet and entree rival that of...

The Columns is located in a lovely, historic area of the city, and right on the river. Perfect for a long walk or run (weather permitting). My room was spacious, with gorgeous feather top (and heated!) mattress, kitchenette, and huge bathroom. My host, April, was tremendously welcoming. Like others have posted here, she felt like family (in the best kind...

The bed was comfortable although the room and bathroom needs some tender love and care. The hostess was great and the food exceptional. Would love to see the place finished of all the renovations.

West Gate is a very upmarket area with old mansions, some in need of maintenance, The Columns is one of these. April (our host) was very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Henry Moore room was big with big bathroom and luxury finishes - the only problem was the noise from people moving around on wooden floors upstairs,...

The Columns is a historic house with lots of dark wood, leaded pane windows, and furniture in keeping with the building's architecture. The innkeeper, April Kassum, was helpful and considerate and is a great conversationalist. I would love to stay here again!

This lovely B & B was the perfect place for our stay in Winnipeg. It was very well situated within the city which made it easy to get around from it's location.

My wife and I found April Kassum to be a wonderful hostess and a fountain of local knowledge. She provided a bountiful and varied breakfast that exceeded expectations every morning. April is indeed a gourmet cook who could open her own very successful restaurant if she chose. The Columns has a large back yard deck and lawn which extends to...
