The Shaftesbury was a great place to stay during the Christmas holidays. The decor was warm and cosy with an old fashioned Christmas feel. Great place to unwind after a long trip from Hong Kong. Meals prepared by Ossie and her mother were great. The rooms were well kept and spacious. Undoubtedly one of the top places to stay on...

Ossie, the Innkeeper, greets her guests warmly and answers any questions asked of her. She guided us to many of the special sites around the island and suggested fun activities. Her breakfasts are superb, ordered from her menu. We had dinner in her dining room one night and wished we would have eaten there more often. Ossie is a wonderful...

What a lovely, warm, and welcoming place! I felt at home immediately in my lovely room. The inn is a short and pleasant walk from the waterfront and the central area of Little Current. Ossie had wonderful suggestions for places to visit and I had a delightful couple of days exploring the island. She's a wonderful ambassador for the area...

As other reviewers have commented, you do get a very friendly welcome from Ossie, who makes you feel at home immediately. Dining is an interesting and enjoyable experience, with an emphasis on middle European dishes, as befits Ossie's family connections, but local, wild trout and whitefish sit happily alongside Wienerschnitzel and goulash on the short menu. Breakfasts are hearty and...

The owner, Ossie, is delightful and very helpful. The room was large and clean. Food was very good! The neighborhood made for a lovely walk after a long day on the road. we would recommend The Shafetsbury In to those adventuring or just getting away on Mantoulin Island

We almost missed this property since Tripadvisor lists it under "B&B/Inn" not "hotel". I'm glad we found it, though. The Tripadvisor reviewer who says that the nomenclature "boutique hotel" is misleading is probably right, but "hotel" works, and it's a charming, comfortable, elegantly conceived accommodation in an attractive setting on a quiet street just outside the town centre. About twenty...

I was quite amazed at the fantastic hospitality of the Shaftesbury Inn. The owner Ossie was really warm and welcoming, the place is charming and quiet, with meals and service that make you feel like home. Would definitely return, hopefully sooner than later and a nice visit this summer. it has its own unique little touch.

Owner very pleasant. Recommended hikes and activities with specific tips. It's an old house in a small street. Nice back yard, quiet. Rooms are dated but very spacious, clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the included breakfast. We will definitely return.

This is a quiet place far enough from the town to have the residential feel but close enough to walk downtown. Ossie is very friendly and pretty much does everything from checking you in to cooking your breakfast. My wife and I have had mixed feelings about the B&B places we have tried but this place was great. It is...

We stayed at the Shaftesbury Inn after taking the ferry from Tobermorey to South Baymouth. We made arrangements with Ossie, the owner, that we would not be arriving until 7 o'clock. She was ready and waiting for us, and welcomed us as if we had just returned home, and that is how we felt during our overnight stay. The Inn...
