Our delicious continental breakfast is served in our main dining room and features St. Viateur Bagels, croissants, toast, jam, cream cheese, fresh fruit, cereal, yogourt, coffee, tea and OJ. We have 7 fully self-contained Suites with private bathrooms and kitchenettes. For the traveller on a budget, we also have 4 Rooms with a shared bathroom and access to our main kitchen.

Wonderful place to stay!

5 on May 05, 2016

We have only stayed here a couple of times. We have tried to book other times but were unsuccessful due to poor planning on our part. The 2 times we did stay made us want to come back again. The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean! The breakfast is tasty and satisfying. People are very warm and helpful. The price is very reasonable. The location is very convenient to downtown and for us it is perfectly located near our son attending McGill. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B.


Quiet, affordable, neighborhood stay

3.6 on April 17, 2016

I was travelling with another adult, and so we stayed in one of the suites, which met our needs well for a little more privacy. I very much enjoyed the quiet residential neighborhood and the access to downtown and tourist sites. The breakfast accommodated different tastes with serve-yourself choices, pleasant hosts and pleasant company. We arrived after a delayed evening flight, but the hosts had given clear directions for accessing our room with our late arrival. We had a lovely time in Montreal.


Good fit for a busy meeting schedule.

They provided clear, effective instructions for late arrival; clear suggestions for close-by food & shopping needs (incidentals); friendly service at breakfast; and easy procedures for early checkout as I worked around meeting schedules. I was also able to enjoy the proximity to Mount Royal since I was able to take time to walk off some of the jet lag.


really nice place near McGIll

We stayed in the brick room which has a full kitchen and bath and there's a lovely breakfast room with continental breakfast as part of the stay. Also the brick room has sun streaming in, in the morning. A quiet place, very clean and comfortable. Only complaint I'd have is the bed which was a little too soft for me. We found on street parking but they also offer $17 /day parking if you prefer. Incredibly close to McGIll and nice. cheers


Awesome B&B cheers

Had a great time at University B&B staff was very friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was very clean and pretty. Will recommend to friends and family if traveling to Montreal

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We strive to have a homey, friendly atmosphere and would love to have you stay with us again. When recommending our B&B, always let your loved ones know that they can book direct with us for special discounts and perks (such as free parking, cancellation-fee protection, and free room upgrades). Returning guests may also want to invest in our Friends & Family Rewards Card--it's free and easy to use (details will soon be online). Getting your loved ones to present your card during their stays can lead to free nights for you. In other words, a win-win situation!


Wonderful but don't arrive late!

3.8 on April 23, 2013

Hello, We loved University Bed and Breakfast in Montreal. Wonderful location. A room full of character and with all the amenities we could possibly want. Very quiet too. The only issue? We arrived after 6 PM to locked doors, no one to greet us, and no way to get in! We had not had any advanced warning of this, not even an e-mail. Imagine being in this situation after an international flight and a heavy suitcase to carry. There was a message in the tiny entrance preceding the locked door, telling us that our keys were in the lock box. There was a lock box with a combination lock. Problem is, no one had told us of this and we did not know the combination. So, we were there and had to try and call the owner on our cell phone (international call for us). We only got a voice answering machine. I left a message, but not one called back. In desperation, we rang the bell of the next door neighbors and a friendly lady emerged who was able to tell us what the combination was, so we were able to get our keys. All was well in the end, and we loved the place, but we had a tremendous scare on arrival. I would suggest that guests be informed of all of this prior to their traveling. We sure were not. Otherwise, once again, a lovely place.

Innkeeper Response
I'm very sorry to hear you had difficulty getting into your accommodation. We have a strict policy of confirming and RE-confirming that all guests have the necessary information for late check-ins, and I'm unsure why this did not occur with your reservation. I hope you give us the opportunity on your next visit to Montreal to provide you with the service and comfort all of our guests can expect from the University Bed & Breakfast. Please book directly so that we can offer your our best rates and special perks (such as free parking or a room upgrade).


Comfortable, convenient and welcoming

4.8 on October 19, 2012

Very pleasant, but not fancy B&B. Best location for visiting McGill as it is practically on campus. Comfy beds and pillows. Quiet location, though sound travels up from the dining area. Lovely breakfasts with fresh Montreal croissants and bagels. French press coffee. Only complaint regards low water pressure in the shower.


Great place, no "kitsch", great coffee :-)

4.6 on October 06, 2012

The house is centrally located in quiet area next to McGill. The rooms are traditional with modern touch and furniture, facilities and kitchen/breakfast area are completely decorated without any Victorian or similar touch. Great breakfast: best coffee in town (Bodum, very strong). Thumbs up ! It's a recommendation.


A great Place to stay near McGill University

No doubt that next time I'll be staying in Montréal. I'll be looking into the University Bed and Breakfast. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and welcoming.

The room was comfortable, the location was great and the breakfast was adequate. The worst part was sharing a bathroom. I definitely suggest getting a room with a private bathroom!
