... 8217;s one lesson life has taught me it’s that when we think things should happen and when they actually happen—if at all—don’t always coincide. We don’t control luck and timing, only perspective and attitude.
Being single on the backside of forty offers loads (and loads) of time and opportunity for self-exploration. The most important relationship we can nurture is the one we have with ourselves, and few things test ...
... lost all our food shopping (thrown out by hostel staff) we decided to head to one of the well-known food markets, Marche Jean-Talon, and bought some fruit and veg. See pics.
That night Jenny cooked up a storm and we had some great food. The following day we headed to the Olympic Park where the 1976 Olympics were held. The park is a monument to the wonder that is concrete! Everything is concrete! The park is famous for the tallest leaning tower in ...
... largest, however, with that said, it seems a little smaller as it is divided into two factions, this is a little sad and their festivities would be incredible and would closely rival Toronto’s if they ever got their act together and joined forces. The two groups are far apart in their thinking, this is unfortunate – the groups are "Diversité/Diversity de Montreal and Fierté/Pride de Montréal.
The one thing about Montreal Pride is that ...
The bus trip flew past pretty quickly considering it was a good 8 hours, including the quick stop for something to eat at the log cabin restaurant in Actinolite. It was still pretty much clear blue sky's and high 20s temperature wise so when I arrived in Montreal I wanted to get to the hostel and drop my stuff off before thinking about dinner. I had emailed ahead to find out roughly how to get to the hostel and was pleased to hear it was roughly a 5 minute walk!How things ...

We began in the lush tropical rainforest, saw the Laurentian maple forest, continued on to see the numerous birds and rich underwater fauna inhabiting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and concluded with the penguins and auks in the subAnarctic islands.
The four of us again caught the metro. We are getting to be good at this. We went to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Kensington Montreal
I really enjoyed my stay in Montreal at "Le Kensington", its hosts: Josée and Reno are really nice people, I will never forget the warm welcome, the useful tips to travel around Montreal, the conversations with Josée at breakfast or when Reno drove me to the airport when I left Montreal. These kind of things made me feel as at home!
Super City Break!
Staying at Le Kensington is a truly superb experience, totally relaxing and a real "home from home". The Gabrielli's have a rare ability to make you feel "one of the family" within minutes of meeting them. We could not have had a more delightful stay in such a lovely old Montreal house, beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated. We will not forget the wonderful and varied breakfasts and look forward immensley to the day we can return! If you are in the area and you want the best, Le Kensington is the place for you!
Although we have run a BnB in England for 17 years, we deliberately did not mention this during our stay at Le Kensington.
A Home Away From Home
Reno and Josee are the warmest people and provide excellent accommodations. They make sure you know your way around the city and you don't leave without a good breakfast in your stomach. From the moment they pick you up from the airport, you feel like you're visiting old friends. Reno gave me a wonderful tour of the city and always had suggestions for things to do. They truly made my stay in Montreal easy and comfortable and I will undoubtedly stay with them whenever I return.
Great room, service and helpfulness from this really cute B&B. From the first phone reservation where Josee asked what cereals and foods my kids and wife like for breakfast, or my food allergies, to the terry robes to lounge in, we were really pleased. Josee and Reno were very nice and not intrusive, leaving us the dining room to relax and watch TV and read in the evenings. Gourmet breakfasts with fresh fruit and waffles were great. Our kids enjoyed the stay with the toys and flexibility most B&Bs don't have. The room was perfect with 2 double beds, ceiling fan (though they have A/C but who needs that in September in Montreal?), and windows that open. The price was right on for traveling families. We would definitely return to stay with Jose and Reno and wish them much success in the future. You can tell they care and know what they are doing. If the location is where you want to be it's a 'no brainer' to pick Le Kensington over some sterile hotel or motel... Thanks..rob.
Our stay at Le Kensington was a wonderful choice--and we have the experiences to be able to make a comparison. Josee and Reno made us feel very much at home. The accommodations are incredibly clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The location is in a charming neighborhood, but not far from the downtown area.
I have to say that our stay at Le Kensington was the best we have ever had at a B & B. Our trip to Montréal began with a huge dissapointment and Reno and Josée came to our rescue! We arrived in Montréal to a hotel that didn't exist called "Berri Suites" we found this hotel on Craigslist and it turned out to be a scam! To our misfortune we had to stay at a Holiday Inn that night after driving all day and being very tired (We paid a hefty bill for that one night!!)
A Gite Treat! Sweet!
... and one of the best parts was the concise yet detailed overview our hosts gave us of the neighborhoods of Montreal while gathered round maps spread out on the dining table.... providing exactly the sort of understanding that had been our goal (and they didn't even know that was our goal!). Wait ... I think we stayed with special friends .. we must have known them before .... where was it? Hummm......
My family and I recently spent five days at Le Kensington, a bed and breakfast in Montreal. We could not have been happier there. Our hosts, Josée and Reno were warm and welcoming--excellent B&B hosts.
