|The Greystone Manor Bed and Breakfast, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada|
Continuing with my recent Canadian holiday, the Greystone Manor is the bed and breakfast I chose for our overnight stay at Niagara Falls in Canada.

Last year Pat made our overnight accommodations for our stay in Niagara Falls. I forget the name of the hotel but it was one of those chain hotels that cater to families. Folks, even though I've been in the hotel business for the past eighteen years, I'm finding I'm not predisposed at staying at these touristy, kid worn out hotels. I was going to say at hotels but I held back because this year we stayed at a Best Western in Hamilton, Ontario, which was probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in. So I can't make a blanket judgment.

I did my research this year and I chose a bed and breakfast on the Canadian side of the border of Niagara Falls called the Greystone Manor. I choose well.
Located a short distance from downtown Niagara Falls, on a quiet street, the Greystone Manor was an ideal location. We were greeted warmly (with a smile!) as we exited our car. We were expected!
"Lisa" showed us around the delightful Victorian style house where we were going to spend our night. Ah, no kids. No worn out rugs from the rug rats. No surly front desk personnel burned out by all the tourist families with their little kiddies. No dirty carpets. No noise. Ah yes, accommodations for two senior men who are way past the family accommodations. Oh why it took me so long to discover bed and breakfasts.
The Greystone Manor was spotlessly clean. No rugs. And did I say quiet? Oh yes, I did.
We were shown the dining room where our breakfast would be served. I have to tell you folks, the next morning when we had our breakfast that was the first time in my life I've been treated like that. Wow. So this is how the Other Half lives? It's a shame that Pat and I aren't big breakfast eaters but it was a pleasant surprise to be treated like special guests.
You know folks, I wasn't going to go back to Niagara Falls next year but after our delightful experience at this bed and breakfast, I'm going back!
