Amazingly comfortable accommodations well located in Dundas Hamilton area. Rooms are immaculate with a sense of history. Gary is incredible as a host and the breakfasts are incredibly good. Well worth the stay. Would absolutely stay here again

I chose the Osler House because I was particularly interested in staying in a historic house. It certainly exceeded expectations on that front, and the owner lent us a number of books and articles and talked with us about the history and the renovations -- it was like living in a museum for a week! As a B&B, it also... More

We stayed in the Sir Wiliam Osler Room and the room was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The king size bed provided extra comfort for our one night stay. The ensuite bathroom had a soaker tub for two. That was a pleasant discovery. Breakfasts was filling and delicious. The host was very welcoming and gracious. We would stay there again.

My husband and I spent a night here on a recent weekend. The home is quite charming. It was a warm day and our room air conditioner was not sufficient to cool the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Osler House is an historic and elegant Victorian mansion built in 1848 that has been meticulously restored. Once the home of the famous and illustrious Osler family, including Doctor Sir William Osler, it is now operated as an exclusive boutique inn and has hosted many VIP guests including royalty on two occassions. Situated on a 1 1/2 acre quiet and private oasis on the most prestigious street in Dundas, it is just a 5 minute walk to the many shops and restaurants of quaint downtown Dundas; the ideal blend of country quiet and city convenience. Guests are treated to the elegance and pace of a bygone time, from the giant and rare Magnolia tree by the front door, to the house tastefully furnished with a heritage of antiques. Accommodations include exclusive access to the front parlour, billiard and garden rooms,as the owners live in completely separate quarters. Deer and other wildlife are often seen grazing on the lawn while relaxing on the front porch. Yet the house features modern amenities and communications. The complimentary breakfast also evokes a more elegant time; gourmet meals served by candlelight in the formal dining room on fine china and silverware, with pressed linen napkins. McMaster University and medical centre are 5 minutes away, downtown Hamilton is 10 minutes, and both Toronto and Niagara Falls are an hour away. Trails, parks and dozens of waterfalls are all within minutes as well. ... more   less
