Below is an excerpt of a glowing review for each of the winning inns.

A la Carte B&B - Montreal, Quebec


"My wife and I came to Montreal for our honeymoon and stayed at A la Carte. The location is excellent with a good nightlife, lots of restaurants and shops. Very safe neighborhood with lots of couples and young people out and about. You can walk everywhere but public transport is easily accessible if need be. The B&B itself is very clean, warm, and cozy. Breakfast was made to order and fantastic. Daniel loves to cook! We stayed in the Mother Nature room which was, again, very clean and comfortable. Petra, Daniel and Monsieur Petit (their adorable dog and mascot) were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about all of Montreal, the sights, shops, and restaurants to see and exactly how to get around. This is the #1 rated B&B in Montreal for a reason. We look forward to visiting again soon. Thank you Petra, Daniel and Monsieur Petit for Making our honeymoon so great and memorable!"


Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn - Victoria, British Columbia


"From our greeting at the door to warm goodbye at the end of our stay, the staff at Abbeymoore made our Honeymoon sensational. We experienced all the things that you would expect at a great B&B (comfy bed, tourist info, clean bathroom, etc). What made our stay amazing was the excellent food, real conversations with friendly staff, and above-and-beyond service. If I had to wager, I would say that Anne, Chris, and Michelle have a running competition to out do each other on customer service lol. For example, my wife and I mentioned that we went to the theater on the wrong night and planned on going the next day. Not only did Anne take it upon herself to call the theater to find out about tickets, but she secured them for us and had them at breakfast the next day! And yes, we enjoyed the performance. Both of us enjoyed our stay in Victoria and had a chance to go to a few B&B's. Part of me is sad that the other experience we had in town was pale in comparison to staying at Abbeymoore. However, we are both happy about having found this gem of comfort and hospitality and plan on staying here again next time we come visit."


Auberge McGee's Inn - Ottawa, Ontario


"A fantastic stay at this Victorian Inn-great service; fantastic food; clean rooms; and a charming atmosphere. The location is close to U of O, and the downtown core, including the Byward market. The staff were courteous and helpful and welcoming to my family and my five children-we were provided with a playpen and an air mattress and room 14 accommodated all of us beautifully and as it was upstairs it was quiet. I had been hesitant about a B&B but will choose this type of accommodation from now on and highly recommend McGees Inn."


Beacon Inn at Sidney - Sidney, British Columbia


"The Beacon Inn in Sidney is a step back in time, and a stop that should not be missed when visiting Vancouver Island. The staff and amenities are amazing. The bed was very comfortable, the room as beautiful as anything in a decor magazine, and the breakfast was something to look forward to in the morning. The ambiance is such that I felt at home, and comfortable in the sitting room sipping sherry or chatting with other guests. No detail in decor or comfort has been overlooked and no request is too small. Guests here are made to feel very welcome, and for someone traveling alone, this made it special. I will return again to this wonderful Inn, a place to relax, unwind and be pampered."


Crystal's View Bed and Breakfast - Vancouver, British Columbia


"Crystal's B&B should get six stars, it's really that good! I've traveled and stayed in many B&B's and none have been this plush and inviting. What makes Crystal's so fantastic is the host herself. She and her family go to great lengths to make you feel special like one of the family. I've stayed with her many times over the years and have seen her spend literally hours going out of her way to accommodate her own guests and find space for travelers who were stranded with no where to stay or had family emergencies. Crystal and John are incredible hosts and even better human beings. I love the ambiance, the plush accommodations and the warmth. Highest Rating!"


A Good Knight - Victoria, British Columbia


"We have just returned to the bleak reality of life at home after spending 9 wonderful days at the Good Knight B&B. Woke up this morning - couldn't smell breakfast cooking or coffee brewing, the table wasn't set, the soft music wasn't playing, the candle wasn't lit. And where's my fresh fruit bowl? And the back veranda just doesn't have the same appeal! :) But seriously, if you are thinking of staying in a hotel rather than this particular B&B, think again! You will NOT be disappointed! We've never been treated better - anywhere! This is an unbelievably spectacular home, with a very special hostess, and we know you will agree with us if you stay at the Good Knight!"


A Suite Dreams Toronto B&B - Toronto, Ontario


"We stayed at Suite Dreams in the Garden Suite for 4 nights this fall. Mr.Tan was very friendly and helpful. He arranged bus tours and taxi pick ups for his guests and provided us with plenty of information on the sights of the city. The inn and room was very clean and spacious and the shared washroom arrangement with the owner worked out very well . We enjoyed our conversations at the nutritious breakfasts and found the location to be very handy for public transportation. We will stay here again when visiting Toronto."


A Touch of English Bed & Breakfast - Kelowna, British Columbia


"Visiting A Touch of English B&B was more like staying with good friends in a very posh house rather than a staying at a normal B&B. We were greeted with such warmth and familiarity and invited to make ourselves at home. The room was beautiful and set out with such a great attention to detail, from the lovely bedspreads down to the complimentary port on the side table. The evening drink on the terrace, the fantastic breakfast in the morning with home made smoothies in wineglasses and delicious home made waffles served on fine bone china all made us feel like royalty. A fantastic experience and a must-stay B&B if you are ever in the area - and worth travelling to even if you're not! My only regret is not having the time to stay longer and really enjoy all that the place had to offer."


A View of the Lake B & B and Demonstration Kitchen - Kelowna, British Columbia


"Thank both of you for your hospitality and kindness. You are such a lovely couple and gracious hosts. Your B&B is something truly special, and we were very fortunate to have stayed with you. As well, we are still talking about your gourmet breakfasts we enjoyed each morning while socializing with the other guests. Thanks Steve for your yummy creations (and for trying new dishes with us), and thanks to Chrissy for helping you out in the kitchen. You make a great team!! Your breakfasts were to die for, delicious and decadent all the way. Now we have to work on losing a few pounds! We had a wonderful time and we were thrilled to have been able to celebrate our Anniversary at 'A View of the Lake'. Our visit with you will always hold a special place in our hearts and we have lots of photos to remember our special occasion. We plan on coming back again next year to see you. Be prepared and heads up, as our next visit we hope to bring along with us 6 other people (3 couples) so that we can have Steve cook up a gourmet feast in his Demonstration Kitchen. Thank you again for such a wonderful time, and take care."
