While the hotel is situated a short bus ride from the main city, the location is perfect for those who want to be close enough to the action, but in an area not mob'd but students and tourists.
'Rue Mason' street is a stones throw from the B&B with a great selection of bars and restaurants, Magre being our pick of the bunch. It is also convenient if driving to and from Trudeau airport - taking only 30min to arrive - although like any road in North America - timing is everything (and speed limits!).
The accommodation was perfect - one of the best B&B's we have had the pleasure to stay. If you like cute little dogs, Monsieur Petite will greet you each morning with an expectant wag of his tail, hoping that one morning he will get fed a sausage from the breakfast table! Bed and bathroom were extremely comfortable and the rooms were larger than they appear on their website.
The only regret we had is that we didn't leave more time to enjoy the company of our hosts Petra and Daniel who were great in providing information on how to get around Montreal and some of the best places to visit.
It will be our first choice when we next return. Thankyou Montreal - and thank you Petra and Daniel!
