Location, location, location! A genuine Victorian manor house built in 1885 and located on the edge of the Plateau, one of North America's hippest neighbourhoods. Steps away from Square St. Louis and the Prince Arthur pedestrian mall with it's BYOB (bring your own bottle) restaurants. On St-Denis and St-Laurent you will find even more restaurants, fantastic cafés and night clubs. Right next is the village, the Latin Quarter and downtown Montreal with some of the greatest shopping and Montreal's famous underground city. A twenty minute stroll to Old Montreal and the old port. Close to the Sherbrooke metro station, day and night buses and Bixi (bike rental.) About thirty-five minutes from Montreal-Trudeau airport by car. Ten minutes from the central bus station and fifteen from the central train station.

Cozy gem!

4.8 on July 31, 2014

Our stay at the Gingerbread Manor was so enjoyable. We stayed in a room with a private bathroom, and it was stocked with everything we needed. The room itself was neat and felt comfortable for the two of us; we had a restful sleep and were treated to a marvelous breakfast the next morning (think: homemade French toast with blackberry jam and creme brulee yogurt!). One of the hosts also recommended a delicious place for dinner--a creperie on St. Denis St, where the chefs are from Brittany, France. Overall, a great place to stay!

Extremely Beautiful Inn

We really enjoyed our stay here! Location was perfect: Within walking distance of shops and restaurants on St-Laurent and St-Denis, and just two blocks from a Metro stop. The room was comfortable (note that there's only one room with a private bathroom, which is the one we chose). The innkeepers are a couple of very friendly, funny guys who were helpful with recommendations, and cooked a mean breakfast! Would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable and friendly

Das BnB war sehr gemütlich. Wir hatten ein kleines Zimmer mit Balkon zur Strasse raus. Alles ist sauber. Das Bad wird geteilt, was überhaupt kein Problem war. Die Gastgeber sind sehr hilfsbereit und unterhalten mit diversen geschichtlichen Informationen. Ausserdem ist es sehr schön gelegen. Die Strasse ist wunderschön im typischen Montrèal Style, mit den Treppen aussen am Haus. Man ist hier auch zu Fuss gut unterwegs und es ist nicht weit zur Innenstadt. We really enjoyed our stay at Gingerbread Manor. The hosts were very kindly and everything was clean. The city is within walking distance. The BnB is at a one of the marvelous streets of Montreal.

great location

Great location near metro and within walking distance of old town. Breakfast was pretty good. Room was small.Owners very helpful.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry that you were unhappy with the room that you selected. There are 5 different rooms available. Two small rooms (Carleton with the private balcony and Wolfe&Montcalm), two large rooms (Champlain and Frontenac) and one medium sized room (deMaisonneuve with the private bath). As you realize the prices of the rooms reflect their sizes. Many guests are very happy with the small room based on price and that they still get to enjoy our wonderful full breakfast, our hospitality and the beautiful Victorian manor.

great location, accommodating to dietary restrictions

Gingerbread Manor is within walking distance of many of Montreal's best tourist features including McGill, Mont Royal Park, the Old City incl Notre Dame and Lachine Canal. Easy metro access to the wonderful botanical garden and Atwater Market. Bikes to rent right there and many restaurants all around. Our room was spacious with tons of natural light. Sharing a lav and bathroom were no problem at all.

Wonderful Old Montreal Experience

I have not stayed at a B&B before and found this lovely place online. Hoping it was as good as it looked on the internet, I booked it for 3 nights. It was even better than I had hoped! Lovely old home which was wonderfully appointed with modern amenities inside. Close to the Metro station, so there was easy access to anywhere in the city and also located right between St. Denis Street and St. Laurent - a lovely district with beautiful old homes. The breakfasts were superlatively delicious and the host was so helpful with ideas and suggestions on what to see and do. Also makes fabulous macarons :-) I would definitely recommend this B&B for a memorable old Montreal experience. (Of note: there are quite a few stairs to climb - very picturesque but a challenge if you have mobility issues.)

We stayed in Gingerbread manor during my cousin's wedding in Montreal. We were welcome with warm hospitality at the manor. Our room was spacious and clean. We shared bathroom with clareton but I have problem during our stay of using it. The bathroom was clean and equipped with things from hair blower to make up remover. And it's very convenient to the metro like two blocks away!
