Spent a wonderful night at Talwood Manor with a super hostess and a great cook - the accommodations were superlative and Judith we will spread the word and hope to return to your exceptional B&B!

- Karen, from Etobicoke, Ont. 26 October 2018

My husband and I booked a room at the last minute at Talwood Manor on July 30th, 2018 on our way back to Canada. What a pleasant surprise to find this wonderful B&B! Judith was the most gracious host ever, very accommodating and helpful. Her breakfast was over-the-top delicious, as was our experience there, albeit a short one. Highly recommend this beautiful B&B. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Judith!

- Mark & Jackie Lemieux, from Markham,Ontario 4 August 2018

I was a guest at the Talwood Manor on July 8th and 9th. I have stayed at many B and Bs over the years, but this was the best experience I've ever had in this type of lodging. After a long day on my bicycle, I was dying for a cup of tea. Upon greeting me, Judith offered me a selection of no less that 15 flavors, along with coffees and free non alcoholic beverages. The historic 100+ year old home is beautiful and it's immediately obvious that a lot of thought went into the remodeling and decorating to stay true to the era in which it was built. The room was great, but the highlight has to be the gourmet breakfast. Judith spends her mornings traveling to farms and local markets buying the ingredients for the next day's morning meal. I had an excellent asparagus Frittata along with crepes & fruit the first morning and Eggs Florentine the second. I didn't get a chance to try her Eggs Benedict, but I hear it is fantastic. If all B&Bs treated their customers like Judith does, no one would ever stay in a motel ever again.

- Randy Newberry, from Virgina and New York 9 July 2018

Recently stayed two nights at Talwood Manor. Great location to walk to restaurants, quiet neighbourhood. Judith is a very accommodating host, dedicated to ensuring her clients are well looked after. Easy drive to many area attractions--charming house and amenities made our stay enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

- Carl and Val, from Ottawa, Canada 30 August 2017

It was our very first time staying at a B&B and we were NOT disappointed! Tulwood Manor has beautiful decor, a lovely hostess and friendly felines! We stayed in the Tudor Room and were quite happy with the comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. The breakfast was the nicest surprise ... to our eyes and our stomach! It was delicious! We recommend Tulwood to all travelers.

- Cristine and Brian Boyd, from Rootstown, Ohio 21 August 2017

We had a lovely stay at Talwood Manor. Judith was an outstanding, accommodating and welcoming host. And her gluten free baking is divine!

Thank you!

- Katie, from Brantford, ON 28 June 2017

A wonderful B&B to stay in, and the breakfast was fantastic. Talwood is a special place,filled with love and warmth. The owner makes you feel at home, and has great site seeing advise, along with some restaurant recommendations. Thank you Judith for making my stay special. Kathy

- Robert and Anita, from Etobicoke 22 July 2016

While here on business, Judith "saved" me from spending two nights in an unsavoury motel. Talwood Manor is lovely! Better than advertised! Breakfast was out-of-this-world delicious and served at the perfect time to get me off to my trade show. Thank you Judith for providing a place to relax at the end of my day and for helping me start my day rejuvenated.

- Rita, from New Dundee, Ontario 27 May 2016

We came to Port Colborne to use the Friendship Trail and Talwood Manor was an ideal location from which to bike. Judith was an excellent hostess. She Made us a delicious gluten free breakfast both mornings. We felt like royalty in the Tutor suite.

- Hanneke and Aant Koonstra, from Uxbridge, Ontario 20 March 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Tudor Room on February 29th. Judith is a wonderful hostess and breakfast was delicious. Beautiful home, very comfortable, and we highly recommend it!

Great place to stay when doing the Niagara bike loop. Talwood Manor is easy to find,has bike storage and in walking distance to restaurants. The room was beautiful, comfortable and the full breakfast was delicious. Thanks Judy

- Anonymous, 1 October 2015

My husband and I have stayed at many B&B and they have all been nice, however this is the best one yet. Delicious breakfast, friendly hostess, beautiful decor and walking distance to down town Pt Colborne. We would definitely stay here again.

- Diana & Dave Madden, from Hamilton, ON 29 June 2015

Everything about this B&B is first class. The furnishings, the cleanliness, the soaps and shampoos purchased from local shops, the eggs Benedict were superb and most of all, the proprietor, Judith. This is the place to stay in Port Colborne!

- Mary, from Thornhill, Ont 23 June 2015

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at "Talwood Manor" in Port Colbourne during My Sons wedding in early June 2015. The room was very nice and the Breakfast superb.

- Brion Jorgensen, from Harriston ON 8 June 2015

My wife and I travelled the S.W portion of Ontario in a car for 10 days. During that time we stayed in numerous B&Bs and a couple of Hotels. Without a doubt Talwood manor was by far the best. From accommodation to Hospitality we would highly recommend Talwood. Manor. The room was great and the operator-owner was just a super Lady. Anyone who likes Antiques and great Hospitality should stay here !!! Thank you Judith. Ione and Ed from Calgary.

- Ione and Ed, from Calgary Alberta 2 June 2015

Lovely old home on corner property, surrounded by trees, shrubs, gardens, gazebo, and beautifully decorated window boxes. Then, when you enter, pass through the covered cosy porch room, the drawing room is breathtaking. Exquisite furnishings, tasteful decor. Every detail considered. We were treated like royalty, yet felt down-to-earth, comfortable. Rooms divine, private, immaculate. Our favourite, the Highlander. Judith a superb and considerate host, most hospitable, cheerful, and informative. Enjoyed her passion whilst speaking of her city. Breakfast gourmet-delicious taste-sensational. Close to downtown, and the canal. Divine to walk the safe, serene neighbourhood at sunset. Thank you!

- Gary, from London 16 February 2015

We stayed with friends for a cycling weekend . The Talwood Manor was very comfortable,clean and well furnished. Judith was an excellent hostess and provided us with many comforts. The breakfasts were amazing and really for us off to a a good start. The principle rooms are lovely and you really feel that you are some place that is special.

This is a great location for cycling the Niagara route.

I have stayed at many BB and this is the best for the price.

Helen

- Helen and Sam, from Clarksburg Ontario 4 October 2014

This 4 bedroom B&B is immaculately clean and nicely furnished with some 5 star feature. (ex. self warming toilet seat with built in fan.) Judith, the host is wonderful, has a warm personality, we felt really welcomed. The garden around the house is well manicured and there are some parking spot at the back of the house which is a bonus. The breakfast was the highlight of our stay, she offered a wide selection of gourmet breakfast with really expensive food options. The best B&B stay ever!

- Eva V., from Toronto, Canada 20 August 2014

Nous sommes restés une nuit pendant notre voyage de vélo. Quel endroit! le décor est exceptionnel et la proprio est très accueillante et attentive. Judith nous a même offert une collation en après-midi, ce qui nous a beaucoup touchés. Le déjeuner a été super bon et nous avons même prolongé la discussion après le déjeuner. Un endroit à y revenir pour découvrir un peu plus le canal Welland et les alentours. Pour les cyclistes, le gîte est équipé de tout le nécessaire, garage pour entreposage et pompe à air. Un grand merci pour l'accueil chaleureux!

- Madalina Burtan, from Montréal 17 July 2014

Talwood is the best choice for a stay in Port Colborne and an easy walk to Roselawn if you want to take in some local plays or readings. Great setting, tasty food, a good humoured and solicitous host with great taste not to mention a good night's sleep in air conditioned comfort on a warm night.

- Vicki, from Toronto 5 July 2014

Talwood Manor was an excellent experience for my husband and I. Judith was a wonderful hostess. She was very knowledgable about activities to do in the are, good places to eat and good places to shop. She was very generous and friendly. As well her breakfasts were delicious. I found myself wanting to eat every meal at her house as her meals were better than most of the local restaurants. Thank- you Judith for your kindness and warmth.

- Jacquelyn Campbell, from Cambridge, Ontario 14 June 2014

In mid March my husband and I stayed at Talwood Manor for the second time. Judith is an informative gracious hostess and an excellent chef, her breakfasts would bring anyone back for more. The themed rooms are very clean, cosy and comfortable. The location is in a quiet area close to downtown. We highly recommend Talwood Manor .

- Art & Eleta, from Kanata Ontario 18 March 2014

My brother and I stayed one night at Talwood Manor, but it was long enough for a very memorable stay. Judith was very friendly, but not intrutive and gave us interesting information about the history of the beautiful manor. The room was comfortable, the bathroom spotless (very important to me). Our breakfast was fantastic! The best breakfast I have every had! Seriously, I would be back to Port Colborne just for that breakfast. Thanks Judith!

- Janice, from Hudson Bay, SK 2 December 2013

My Mum stayed here when she traveled to Canada on her own for a family funeral. Everything was just great, Mum had a great stay despite her sad circumstances, Judith could not have been kinder and more considerate of her and she especially enjoyed the breakfasts. Mum highly recommends the poached pears and scrambled egg with salmon. Judith was great with the booking, answering all my queries and I was happy Mum was in great hands. If we come to visit Canada we will be staying here!

- Janet, from Dubai 6 November 2013

If you are looking for a bed & breakfast or even a hotel for your getaway, look no further. This weekend could not have been any better. The food was something you would find in a fine dining establishment. The comfort is like being at home. The host Judith, was extremly nice you could not ask for a better person. The tudor room is where my wife and I stayed in. All I can say is wow. In regards to the location its perefect. Its on a quit street in a nice town. If you need to get any were 20 mins will get you there ie walmart, dollarama etc... also if you plan on checking out niagra falls its only 30. This will be, me & my wife's yearly weekend getaway for now on. Thank youso much Judith

- David & Lattoya, from Canada 6 October 2013

What good fortune to have discovered this gem! My good friend Kaye and I came to Port Colborne knowing little about it, and much to our delight we had a memorable stay,in large part because of our stay at Talwood Manor B & B. Judith is an extraordinary, good hearted hostess (and person) who made us feel both welcomed and special. A marvellous story-teller with an unfectious easy laugh and a wealth of information promoting her home, Port Colborne. There was such attention to every detail at Talwood; the well-appointed rooms, the delicious customized breakfasts, stocked guest fridge in the common area upstairs, the themed bedrooms,the numerous brochures promoting the Artisans and shops and sites in the area, menus for local Restaurants, specially selected soaps, lotions, room sprays, jams, teas and even the blueberry juice served at breakfast from the East Coast. Only the very finest for her guests. We stayed in the Asian Room, with two twin beds overlooking the backyard gardens which worked perfectly for our needs. We luckily, had the opportunity to view each of the other rooms; the Highlander (Scottish theme); the Tudor (British Royalty), the Tropical (the Florida Keyes) all handsomely decorated with the help of Judith's niece. Judith's Sister Margaret also contributes much help and support to this very successful and charming home and B&B. We will definitely be back!

- Beth Paulin, from Burlington, Ontario 31 July 2013

Veteran travellers recognise that in taking a room at a B & B you haven’t stayed at before, you may be putting yourself at some risk of being disappointed or even upset with the experience; for example, normally you don’t know your host or hostess, you aren’t familiar with the type of lodging provided, and have little or no knowledge of the quality of food or services offered by the host. Veteran travellers also know that in the majority of cases, a stay at a B&B is a fond memory in the making. This is truly the experience my wife and I enjoyed while staying at the Tallwood Manor located in Port Colbourne Ontario. The ambiance of the home is like no other we had experienced prior to our stay; the décor and furnishings are right out of the pages of a magazine, (“English Living” to be exact). Rare antiques fill the home and period ornamentation pieces emanate a sense of luxury and serenity that is rare in the “mass production” mind-set of today’s hurried world. Judith, our hostess, is a very special and gracious person, with the instincts and skills of a gourmet chef. Her attention to both the physical setting and the ambiance of her home is rare, and is intended to afford guests the ultimate in Bed and Breakfast accommodation. She excels at bestowing a breakfast that will impress even the most exacting foodie, while her attentive and caring nature make guests feel comfortable and welcome. My wife and I thank you for both a delightful experience and a fond memory, and wish you the best, knowing that your personality and skills and the home, which you have worked so hard to create and maintain, will be a stunning success. We will be back!

- Rod & Laurene Locke, from Buckhorn Ontario 24 May 2013

We have stayed at Talwood Manor twice already and we are definitely planning to go back. Judith is a wonderful host and we thoroughly enjoyed her hospitality, as well as her company. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and full of charm. The food is also exceptional. If you are planning a trip to Port Colborne, we would like to reccomend Talwood Manor as a #1 place to stay!

- Jelena and Dave, from Brantford 22 May 2013

Praise to Judith of Talwood Manor. Tudor room is well fitted, inviting & comfortable, and breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend. You will be warmly greeted by Joey the tabby cat.

- Ms. Lori, from Windsor, ON 15 October 2012

We stayed with Judith in order to attend a family function and the accommodation was outstanding and first class all the way. The first day we were jet lagged very badly and Judith very graciously fed us breakfast at 1 in the afternoon! Our room was quiet and peaceful, very important to us. Breakfast was always a delight and an epicurean experience. Highly recommend. Nice places to walk to in the morning too.

- Rob and Jean, from Vancouver 20 September 2012

What an amazing place, it was like a piece of heaven!!!!!!!!!! Judy was the best host EVER

- Marie Aubin, from sturgeon falls 17 September 2012

Une belle découverte,de l'ordre de celles qui alimente notre désir de voyager et crée d'agéables souvenirs.

- Bernard et Lyne de Charlevoix, 10 September 2012

We have traveled around the world and have stayed in many B&B so what you are about to read comes with a little knowledge. If you are looking for lodging while in charming Port Colburn or the surrounding area you may be hard pressed to find a B&B that offers as much charm and hospitality as the Talwood Manor offers. The owner Judith is a most gracious and accomodating of hostess.

Our room was immaculate, well decorated and spacious. Judith added many little extras (wine glasses,soda, water,tea,juices,cookies and i'm sure i have missed some) to mske our stay that much more enjoyable.

Judith went out of her way to prepare breakfast to meet everyones wishes, from a meatless breakfast for a guest right down to freshly squeezed blueberry juice.

The Talwood Manor is a MUST if your plans include spending a night or two in the Port Colburn area. Oh yea if you happen to see Fred the gardener be sure to say hi to him

- Fred no not the gardener, from Fredonia New york 20 August 2012

Our first visit to Talwood Manor was in February when we visited Port Colbourne looking for places for our friends and family to stay for our daughter's wedding. We reserved three suites and returned in July for the wedding. On both occasions we were impressed with the attractive accomodation, Judith's friendly charm, and the outstanding breakfasts! An added attraction of Talwood Manor's location is that it is just a short walk to both the Welland Canal and Lake Erie. We highly recommend Talwood as a place to stay and plan to return again. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality Judith!

- Bob and Debbie Campbell, from Toronto, Canada 5 August 2012

We stayed @ the Talwood Manor this past Saturday night, July 7th 2012. What a wonderful stay. Although we had very little time to enjoy this beautiful home,we were visiting Port Colborne for a surprise Birthday party. Judith was a warm & inviting host. We stayed in the Tudor Room. Beautiful,clean & so comfortable! The King size bed was so comfy. Very quiet,peaceful sleep. Bathroom was huge & private. Nice big claw foot soaker tub & seperate walk in surround glass shower. Nice private nook outside our room to have coffee & tea to ourselves in the morning. ( bonus! as Kelly is not a morning person). Breakfast was excellent. We were given quite a selection to choose from. We would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast. Clearly a 5 Star... Thank you again Judith! Bruce & Kelly Bond

- Bruce & Kelly Bond, from Sarnia, Ontario Canada 9 July 2012

My brothers and their wives booked Talwood Manor Tudor room as a gift for our 25 wedding anniversary. At first I was very skeptical of going. After reaching Talwood Manor, the stunning exterior of the beautiful house with an extravagant garden blew my mind and gave me a sense of excitment. it is a Great Place, with a warm and friendly atmosphere, A real touch of class, Tudor room is very comforting and The sight of the four poster King-size bed with burgundy-gold canopy and adjustable personal reading lamps is rivaled only by its luxurious comfort: a bed truly fit for a King or Queen! ( true say )the enclosed balcony with table and chairs with lavish 4 piece bathroom with glass shower and soaker tub. Relax in the scented water while reading an exclusive magazine . Judith was an excellent hostess provides luxury and service that exceeds expectations; from the beautiful theme rooms with everything you need to delicious . Judith and her helper worked hard to prepare simply delicious breakfasts. The other staff kept our room and bathroom clean and well stocked. overall!!! great place, an extraordinary experience....THANK YOU!!! Talwood manor for making our 25th Anniversary a very memorable one.

Personally a 10/10 recommendation for Talwood Manor.

- HUMERA/AKBAR..............20May2012, from TORONTO CANADA 28 June 2012

We've have stayed in several B&B over the years and it's usually the little touches that make the difference. That along with the house itself and the amount of effort and passion the owner puts into it. Talwood Manor is all that. From the outside you can't really tell how spacious and amazing the inside is. What a stunning lounge and dinning room. Once upstairs you quickly see how much effort has gone into Talwood. Our group had three room. We stayed in the Tudor, which has a great ing poster bed, the potch sitting room and the amazing bathroom. The upstairs lounge area was great for the group. All the fixings for fair trade coffee, tea, juices... even Dad's cookies. The breakfasts were stunning, really enjoyable meal and we never felt rushed. Judith was a great host and a really nice women. i would recommend staying here. And if, like us, you are on a cycling trip it's nice to know Talwood is cycle friendly...locking the bikesbin thr garage is a nice added touch. Hope to come back soon.

- Joe Borges, from Oakville, ON Canada 27 June 2012

Waaaaauw what a wunderfull stay. We stayed 8 days/nights in this BandB and we have had a great time. Judith took very good care of us. It was clean, mmmmmmmjammie breakfast and good beds. We recommand this stay here. It is nice to go and see the falls, just 45 minutes drive from Port Collborn. Thanks Judith and we recommand this BandB in the Netherlands! Greetings from Annie,Corrie and Betty

- Betty, from Netherlands 12 May 2012

We stayed at Talwood Manor in the Highlander Room on September 17. The room was beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. The house itself was charming, with marvelous antique furnishings, beautiful woodwork, and lovely seasonal decorations. Breakfast was outstanding; my partner had blueberry french toast with real maple syrup, and I had eggs benedict on a unique savory waffle. Delicious. Judy was a gracious and accomodating hostess. We would highly recommend Talwood Manor, and hope to return!

- Andrea & Gerrie, from Barrie, Ontario 18 September 2011

ce B.B. de l'extérieur n'a l'air de rien mais a l'interieur c'est tres bien tres propre ameublement antique de bon goût et aussi tres calme.Tres bon déjeuner avec de petites attentions la proprietaire tres tres gentille nous a meme donnes des morceaux de gateaux pour notre lunch.Nous étions en vélo cet endroit est tres bien situé du centre ville et du départ pour la piste cyclable.Je recommande fortement cet endroit meme nous y retournerons l'année prochaine

- Claude Laurin, from Canada 9 September 2011

From the outside Talwood Manor is a large, unpretentious house, with a large garden - but when you step inside you are stepping into another world. This is a beautiful b&b. Elegant and stylish (as said)it is like being in a high class Regency style home of 18/19 century in UK (Bath, possibly). The wow factor is everywhere you look. Judith is a wonderful hostess - so friendly and welcoming. Her breakfast table is so beautifully dressed, the food,expertly cooked, and so tastefully presented (pardon the pun),made breakfast a joy. Her staff, the ones that we met, Helen and Robyn were both lovely and friendly people too, and helped make our stay here so comfortable. My husband and I, son and daughter-in-law, had the Highlander suite and the Tudor suite respectively, sumptious and comfortable with the lovely little touches that individualised the rooms - eg in the Highlander suite on the dresser was a framed print of the Declaration of Arbroath(14th Century Scotland) - amazing. In the Tudor suite were wallhangings that would be typical of the period and a fantastic (and enormous) fourposter bed. Graeme and Lesley just loved that! Out in the upper hallway were provisions for making tea and coffee, and biscuits in a dish. A fridge held water, milk, juices and beer. I could go on and on extolling the virtues of this b&b. I would look nowhere else in Port Colborne if I was planning another visit. Indeed on leaving the town, I went to the Visitors and Information centre and told the staff there just how wonderful a stay we had had at Talwood. So to those of you who may read this review, who may be considering staying in Port Colborne for any reason - I would say to you - look no further than here - and just hope there is room available. First class classy joint.

- Kathleen McGuigan, from Edinburgh Scotland 25 August 2011

We enjoyed our stay here immensly. Judith was an excellent hostess. Judith and her helper worked hard to prepare simply delicious breakfasts. The other staff kept our room and bathroom clean and well stocked. Thanks ladies. Beautiful home and grounds.

- Allan and Dorothy Dill, from Petrolia, Ontario 19 August 2011

This is such a wonderful place to stay. The house is magnificient, the food is super delicious and Judith is such a lovely and hospitable hostess. I highly recommend Talwood as a marvellous Bed and Breakfast experience while you are in Port Colborne. And Judith's eggs benedict are delicioso.........:):) Enjoy your stay, Suzanne

- Suzanne Manvell, from Toronto, Ontario 9 August 2011

Modest from the outside but gorgeous inside with a super-friendly hostess. Very comfortable rooms and beds, a better breakfast than I've had at 5-star hotels. We had the savoury and she produced asparagus omelettes, oven-baked hash browns (get the recipe), a big bowl of fruit, juice, tea, coffee. We would bicycle all the way there again just to stay at this B&B.

- Anonymous, from Burlington, ON 8 August 2011

A real touch of class!! Clean, comfortable with amazing breakfasts as well! 10/10!! Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful!!

- Kim and Ed, 1 August 2011

Great Place, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Judith, the owner, was personalable and makes you feel like part of the family. The breakfast was incredible, and the rooms were clean, neat and very accommendating.

- Dan, from Buffalo, NY 30 July 2011

Judith has created a very special atmosphere at Talwood that is extremely inviting, warm and first class. My spouse and I had the pleasure of staying at the Talwood on July 16, 2011 in the Tudor Room. The home and the room were beyond our expectations although we had viewed the website. We highly recommend Talwood Manor and would love to visit again in the future

- Wally and Jan Selihar, from Markdale, Ontario 24 July 2011

we stayed at Manor Talwood for two days my husband and I and we lived a very great experience. Everything was clean; the room, the bathroom etc... and the decoration was fabulous. About the breakfast it was wow! It was like our home sweet home! We recommand this place with great pleasure! Sorry for my english... I'm french

- Brigitte Levesque, from Quebec city (Canada) 20 July 2011

My wife and I came to Port Colborne for a visit (because this is where I was raised). We opted for a B&B instead of a hotel/motel and chose the Talwood Manor (which is located kitty corner from my old high school!) It was an absolutely excellent choice. The place, our room, the breakfasts, Judith, everything was outstanding! Both of us actually look forward to finding another occasion to visit Port Colborne...and we will certainly return to the Talwood Manor!...

- Bill & Svet, from Toronto, ON 8 July 2011

We had a wonderful 25th anniversary celebration. The Tudor room was large and very comfortable.Common areas of the house were tastefully decorated with furniture fitting for the style of the house interior. Judy was a warm and friendly host with good information about local restaurants and events. Being located directly across the street from the Showboat Theatre was an added benefit.

- Ed and Nancy Van Gennip, from Scarborough 2 July 2011

If you are looking for a place with the wow factor this is it. judith has ammazing taste and that you wont see any wear else. Perfect spot to take a companion if you need to patch things up or for a special treat.I will be returning with my girlfreind shorty. Big bonus points for me. Lucky to be able to find this place.

- Nickolas Hoffman, from buffalo, New york 30 June 2011

Judith was sn excellent host welcoming us with enthusiasm , we had the tudor room and highlander room both of which were excellent. We thourerly enjoyed breakfast in the splendid dinning room. Judith was also kind enough to let us use her BBQ one evening, enjoying steaks and sausages plus beer and wine in the gazebo in her garden. Also a mention to Joe the cat who welcomed us as well in the morning and on our return everyday. Judith was also very helpful with information before we came to Canada Once again many thanks and our best regards to you.

- Carol lockwood, from England 26 June 2011

My husband and I are so pleased to have found Talwood Manor B&B and Judith, its most gracious host. From the well appointed and comfortable themed bedrooms to the delicious gourmet breakfast, served in style in her stunning dining room, Judith has created a place that is both delightful and welcoming. You can relax in the library or sit on the screened in front porch or enjoy the lovely garden.

With her extensive knowledge of the area, Judith was able to direct us and helped to ensure we made the most of our trip. I am looking forward to making Talwood part the reason to go back to Port Colborne again in the near future.

- J & S Robinson, from Toronto, Ontario 24 May 2011

Talwood Manor is the best B&B that I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Judith provides luxury and service that exceeds expectations; from the beautiful theme rooms with everything you need to delicious gormet breakfasts. Hot chocolate for the tired traveller, heated toilet seat! even starting up my car and clearing off the snow. What more could anyone possibly want for? I plan to go backto Port Colborne every chance I can get!

- Anonymous, from Barrie, Ontario 21 January 2011

Having grown up in Port Colborne, this is definitely one of the nicest accommodations in the city. We took advantage of the Tudor room over the Christmas season, to which the house was decorated beautifully. Our host provided us with the right amount of attention and then left us alone to enjoy the wonderfully restored house. If you're staying in Port Colborne, check this property out first.

- Chris and Meredith, from Toronto, ON 1 January 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Talwood Manor B&B for 5 nights in September, 2010. It is truly one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at! Judith was a wonderful host and went way above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay comfortable and memorable. This being our first time to Ontario, she was a tremendous help in planning our daily excursions to see the Niagara region and in deciding which restaurants to go to for dinner. The Highlander room we stayed in was lovely. The breakfasts were amazing: absolutely delicious and very filling! Judith and her friend, Helen, are both very kind and friendly and made us feel so much at home. If we're ever back in the Niagara area again, we'd love to return to the Talwood Manor!

- Mary Pierce, from Lamont, Alberta 10 December 2010

My husband and I booked into Talwood Manor for our 10th Wedding Anniversary, and we could not have chosen a more wonderful place to stay. The house is a beautiful building with spectacular detailing throughout. Judith was a delightful and thoughtful host, and the breakfast - wow! It was superb! Such a wonderful place to stay. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to go to Port Colborne and re-visit Talwood Manor!

- Vonnie & Alfredo, from Toronto 18 October 2010

My girlfriends and I enjoyed 2 wonderful nights at Talwood Manor. It was our 13th annual B&B weekend. Judith was a wonderful hostess. The B&B is beautiful and we felt quite 'at home'. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning, and I was pleased when Judith accommodated a special dietary request on the second morning! Having been in a number of B&B's, Talwood Manor would be ranked one of the nicest we've enjoyed. Thanks Judith, (Helen and Margaret too). Carol, for Mary, Julie and Lynn from Toronto.

- Carol Herd, for Mary, Julie and Lynn too!, from Toronto, Canada 13 September 2010

We arrived at Talwood Manor after a long day of cycling and were warmly greeted by Judith who gladly let us store our bikes in her garage. She then welcomed us into her beautiful house which has been lovingly restored and renovated. She has clearly put her heart and soul into her bed and breakfast and no detail has been overlooked. We stayed in the Highlander suite which, of course, has a Scottish theme. It was spotlessly clean and all the furnishings were beautiful. The new bathroom boasts a granite countertop and a heated toilet seat!

We then relaxed a bit in the library and had a look at the books and CD's Judith has collected. Every item is a conversation piece. We had dinner at the Canalside Restaurant which was recommened by Judith. It's a pub-like place, not fancy, but the food was delicious and the prices very reasonable.

As lovely as our evening was, the piece de resistance was breakfast the next morning. We were served at a beautiful antique dining room table with silverware and a chalice for our orange juice. There was peameal bacon, poached eggs, blueberry frenchtoast and fruit salad with a lemon chiffon sauce. We felt like royalty.

I hope I have a chance to get back to Port Colborne so that I can go back to "The Manor".

Judith has done a fabulous job restoring this old home, which is right across the street from the Roselawn Performing Arts Centre. Inside, the colours, the wood and the furnishings work together harmoniosly. Each of the four rooms have thier own themes and holds true to them. Judith has put so much thought into the workings of the Inn, that even the shared bathroom has an anti-slamming toilet seat(love that). Judith and her friend Helen pump out an incredible breakfast each morning and each morning a delightful surprise. We won't stay anywhere else while in Port Colborne............. We highly recommend the Talwood.

We were in town for my boyfriend's sister's wedding - all of us in the wedding party had the pleasure of staying at Talwood. Every room was perfect in it's own unique way, and we all fell in love with them! Judith is a natural host, and an absolute delight. Breakfast was amazing, as was Judith's assistant, Helen. We would most definitely return to Talwood Manor B+B, and recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful, and restful retreat in the lovely town of Port Colborne.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful 2 night stay at Talwood Manor. It was a girls weekend away. Judith made it all the more special. Friendly, met some really nice couples that also stayed at the B&B and shared interesting conversations at the breakfast table. Judith is a wonderful cook. I felt like I was in my own home. This was my first experience staying at a B&B and I picked a good one. Thanks Judith.

We had a wonderful 5 nights at Talwood Manor at the end of July and the experience could not have been more delightful! Judith (and friends) were absolutely gracious, friendly and helpful as we got to know the beautiful Port Colborne area. The breakfasts were fabulous and Judith went out of her way to accommodate my dietary quirks. Our room was so comfortable and elegant - we didn't want to leave. We highly recommend this wonderful B&B and hope to return soon.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful B&B. Judith was a gracious, friendly hostess, and took care of our every need. We stayed in the Highlander Room which had a fireplace and was clean, and impeccably decorated. The breakfast in the morning was exquisite, complete with fine china. The eggs benedict was delicious, and Judith even make decaf coffee for me, which was very kind. We would stay again, in Judith's B&B in a heart beat!

Wow! We could not ask for better accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Judith is very kind and thoughtful. We will return again. Now that we know there is a live theatre across from the B&B we will consider returning for a show and overnight. Marilyn & Ron Christie Nottawa, Ontario

I have stayed at Talwood Manor on two occasions while in Port Colborne on business, and my expectations were exceeded on both visits. Judith is a wonderful host and serves the most amazing breakfasts imaginable! The decor of the Manor is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed - no details were left out. I would highly recommend the Talwood Manor and will go back again when in the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Talwood. There was not a thing we could want for-everything was done top-notch. Judith is just an exceptional hostess. We will return and look forward to exploring more of the area.(The heated toilet seat was an exceptional bonus!)
