... temporary home for the night. Tuesday morning was beautiful and we spent the morning exploring Ste Catherine's and napping on the lawns of Vieux Port while waiting for Cassie! She arrived from Toronto around 3:00pm Tuesday afternoon amidst a huge rainstorm. We returned to châteaux Georges before going to supper at an amazing billiard bar and grill in Laval. It was a great find with yummy food ...
... night in Ottowa which started at a sorority house, the girls took their sorority seriously to the point where Nath wasn't even allowed to touch their signs, only sorority girls from that club can. After Nath got a few sneaky photos with the signs we headed out to the area called the Market which had heaps of pubs and restaurants. It was great to catch up with a few friends from summer camp and we ended the night with the famous Smokeys poutine. Poutine is ...
Today takes me back towards the Old Town along a different route, to see a new section of the downtown area. I walk along Boulevard Rene-Levesque, named after the former reporter, government minister and founder of the Parti Quebecois, the political party that advocated for a sovereign Quebec. Being our neighbor to the north, I remember the political struggles of Quebec and how there was a real effort for independence. Since Mr. Rene Levesque was one of the ...
... share my name. There is usually a glitch somewhere where they have to clear my name in the computer system before allowing me into the USA. They have to read the many, many, many screens of data showing all of our entries into the USA, as we are there at least three to four times a year including our cross border shopping weekends. Once this has been completed, they clear my passport and we are good to go. However, when we were across to Maine in April, they copied my ...
... for this 232m hill that rises at its heart -- the "Royal Mountain." Walkers, joggers, cyclists, dog owners, and in-line skaters all use this largest of the city's green spaces throughout the year. In summer, Lac des Castors (Beaver Lake) is surrounded by sunbathers and picnickers (no swimming allowed, however). In winter, cross-country skiers and snowshoers follow miles of paths and trails laid out for their use through the park's 200 hectares (494 acres). Ice-skates, ...

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.
