October 2, 2017 Betty and Lorne made me feel very at home and comfortable during my stay there. I arrived late, around 8:30pm and that was just no problem. I arrived alone, on motorcycle, and they held the car port open for me, in case of rain or frost. Next morning was 3 degrees Celsius, and I was glad the bike was under cover, given the frost on roof tops all around us. Breakfast was eclectic, including juice, yogurt, cheese, oranges, and home made :whole wheat toast, raisin toast, apricot jam, and bumbleberry jam. Hot tea served in a bone china tea pot (tea lovers know this is unusual and good). I had a double bed with duvet, and a washroom with shower to my self. All clean and fresh. I'd go back anytime. Highly recommended. Thank you Betty and Lorne. Rob de Best

Lorne and Betty are lovely people. They are very informative on the area, great conversation, and intersting lives coming from the north, both have a lively sense of humour. Best homemade raisin bread and scrumptious preserves.

The house is spotlessly clean, good area, comfortable bed.

Highly recommend it.

I love Betty and Lorne. I have stayed @ Hamiltons B&B many times and have had a fabulous experience each and everytime. They are wonderful caring hospitable people. The house is always spotless and quiet. Except when the resident bluejays are demanding that Betty feed them

The Hamiltons have a bi-level home in a well established residential neighborhood in Port Hardy. They have been hosting tourists, ferry traffic and itinerant workers for over 20 years, and they do it very well. Their friendly helpful hospitality is quickly evident from the moment you arrive, and you can tell they enjoy your being with them. Be sure to ask about the history and sights to see in the area, as well as Lorne's rock/gem hobby, or his fishing in the region. Betty can also sense your needs upon arrival, and will help prepare you for the next step of your journey, whether it's to meet the ferry, or to travel elsewhere.

Betty was the perfect hostess. Our ferry was late but she was at the door waiting when our shuttle arrived. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast was good (especially the strawberries). We got a brief history of their being the first B&B in town and the Queen of the North ferry.

We had an awesome stay! The Hamiltons are friendly, helpful and made our stay comfortable and welcoming! The breakfast was delicious...especially the home baked bread and preserves!

Port Hardy's scenic view are spectacular!

My husband and I spent two nights at Hamilton B&B. Betty and Lorne were very helpful in making our visit to Port Hardy enjoyable. Our bed was soooooo comfortable; breakfast was great! They made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this B&B.
