There was a fellow there who was obviously doing some sort of film....lets say his subject was dressed....oddly. See for yourself. I would have tried to film him when he stood up but...I don't think it would have been appreciated. I guess having half an animal costume on is better than nothing at all on a day that was not going anywhere past 6 degrees..... Anyway, we walked some ...

... The reason it survived was the building material used on the outside and the fact that the builders had installed iron door joining the library to the rest of the building. On the day of the fire these doors were closed. After the tour we walked outside into pouring rain. Hoping it clears by the time we get to Montreal. Really pretty drive.

We find it easy to while away an hour or two catching up on new releases – there are no large music shops in Perth, Australia. We emerged and returned to our comfy 'home away from home' on the Mont Royale plateau for another late afternoon session of TV golf.

    Historical Traveler Reviews University Bed & Breakfast Montreal

    Great Value and Location

    from

    We stayed here for 4 nights. Check in was a bit strange, the person working that day was unavailable when we arrived, so there was a delay of almost an hour. The desk is not staffed all day.

    We were able to park on the street right in front of our room, you need to pay attention to the signs and move to the other side on certain days.

    The B&B is about a 2 minute walk from McGill, hence the name. The Metro is a 10 minute walk, convenient enough for the able and many museums and sights are within a reasonable walk.

    The room, at $99 C a night was roomy and clean, with a small kitchen and nice bath. Housekeeping is minimal, they change linen once a week or after your stay. The place is cleaned and tidied daily. We loved it.

    University B&B, a very friendly and comfortable B&B

    from

    Last year I visited Montreal on my own for a week, during my stay in Canada. I found the University B&B through the internet and in no time I had made a booking for the B&B. On the internet I could already see that they had all different kinds of rooms and they "gave" me the White Room. When I arrived I couldn't believe my eyes. It was more like a small appartement than just a simple single room. The owner and staff were all very friendly. The room gave me a very homely feeling. There was a beautiful breakfast each day. I can really recommend this B&B. Especially since the staff and owners all speak English.

    Home Away from Home

    from

    I can't say enough good things about the University Bed & Breakfast. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and more than helpful when it came to getting around Montreal.

    Our room was comfortable and I felt like I was staying at a relative's home rather than a strange, cold hotel.

    Ian and Pia are wonderful! Reservations were easy to make and the price is just right.

    I plan to return to Montreal in the future and I already know where I'm going to stay.

    Does what it says on the label

    from

    Just had 4 nights here. We found the place to be exactly as several of the previous reviews had told us it would be like. Our room was very spacious and clean, and you could easily apply the phrase "shabby chic", that is to say not as well maintained decoratively as you would expect your usual mainstream hotel. But we knew what to expect, and it did not spoil our enjoyment.

    The place is extremely well located, and were able to walk to all areas of the city, often walking back late at night from one of the many excellent restaurants nearby.

    The young staff were pleasant and always helpful, although the owners were conspicuous by their absence, as they were apparently enjoying an extended holiday in Turkey.

    We would happily stay here again.

    Would stay here again and again and again....

    Just came back from a 4 night stay at the B&B and my experiences are the exact opposite of the last review.

    The Worst Place I've Ever Stayed.... Ever

    from

    We stayed at this B&B on a family trip including me & my husband, our one-year-old, and an elderly relative. We were looking for a place to stay on a budget that could accomodate all of us. The owners assured us that it would be comfortable for a child and for our limping aunt, and they promised us a room on the ground floor (to avoid stairs), a queen bed and a pullout couch in the "suite," and enough room to set up a portable crib (which we brought). I asked them to please tell me if they could not accomodate our needs, and that we would go elsewhere if they couldn't. They assured me that theirs would be a great place for us.

    Perfect for budget travellers

    from

    We stayed at the Universtiy Bed and Breakfast in the Brick Room. We paid $99.00 per night, which is a very good deal in Montreal. Yes, the rooms aren't quite polished. It is very old building with plaster walls. So, just like that first little apartment you rented when you were young and broke, you will find ripples in the walls, some chipped paint, and some holes in the wall behind the bathroom sink. If you are accustomed to staying in 4 star hotels...this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a good deal and don't want to stay in a questionable area, this is your place. Maybe it is a bit rough around the edges, but we always felt safe, the clientelle were good people, and the employees were friendly. They seem to be fixing it up as they go, so it's a work in progress (another review calls it "shabby chic"...good description).

    Good Choice for Budget Travelers

    from

    Stayed at the B&B for 2 nights in March with my husband. It was fine for two nights on a budget. It does look a bit sketchy from the outside. The first room (beige) was a bit dingy but we moved to another room (white) which was bigger and nicer for the second night. I believe they are currently making some upgrades to the rooms. The location is great for walking everywhere. Very central. I thought the staff were pretty friendly and helpful. They were fairly chatty at breakfast and called us a cab when we were ready to go. They'll keep your luggage for you if you're leaving after the check out time. As far as cooking in the room, they didn't say don't cook, they just said don't cook anything smelly (like fish). We weren't planning to cook anyway - too many good restaurants to try in our measly 3 day stay! I'd probably stay there again if I was on a tight budget, but I might try the Courtyard by Marriott next time if I had an extra $40 to spend. (Since it's also centrally located and gets good reviews.)

    Suite little deal

    from

    I thought this place was charming. This was my first trip to Montreal and I wasnted to be near the action. We also didn't have a long time to spend here so we wanted to be able to walk to everything. And we did. This place is near the University so there is so much happening close by. Excellent restaurants, lots of city sights, Mont Royal hiking trails and viewpoint were all accessable by foot. (albeit some were a lot farther of a walk than others)We spent a lot of time in the latin quarter were there is always something to do. Just a 5 minute walk from the B&b and you are in the middle of some very hip places. The suite itself was what I expected (shabby chic I guess you would call it) My husband thought it was a little too shabby to be chic. We were glad the lighting was very low and ambient so you really couldn't see too mcuh of what was in the corners! The bathroom was small and a probably my only real complaint of this place. It could use an overhaul. The kitchenette was nice although they ask you not to cook so that's a little strange. No matter there were plantly of restaurants we wanted to try. Our roof top patio was a bonus. Although no views it was nice to get some air. THe breakfast was served by University students in the morning. It was okay but nothing to write home about. Continental only but fine. The hosts were not very friendly but they weren't rude either so it was fine. We really didn't see them while we were there anyways. All in all great value, good location with some Montreal charm. Would recommend it to anyone on a budget who likes ambience but who doesn't need the finer things in life:)
