Ideal location to walk to Old Montreal, museums, parks and metro station. Bring your walking shoes and leave the car in a reserved garage or use street parking. The manor is old but the rooms are charming and updated. Only two rooms have on-suite but the shared bathrooms have been updated and are fine. Hosts are very helpful and prepare a great breakfast...two sitting times to accommodate early risers (8am) and late sleepers (9am). It was a pleasant B&B and we'd definitely stay there again.


Cozy gem!

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!

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.)
