      A B&B right on the water!

      A great experience! A B&B right on the harbour ... close to lots of action, restaurants, and points of interest. The proprietors were hospitable and welcoming! The breakfasts were delicious! Pencil us in for another visit soon!

      Making Waves Boatel is a dream!

      Delightful B&B, wonderful regional food for breakfast, quiet and comfortable room. A highlight was the view from the deck of the downtown night lights, including the fabulous light show from the CN Tower. The hosts were very hospitable, and the location is wonderful. I'd stay again!

      We really enjoyed our time on the Boatel! Diane and Ted are great hosts and we enjoyed the interaction with other guests too. The location was perfect, so close to everything! Diane’s breakfasts were beyond spectacular.
