THE JUNIOR SUITE
"We had the good fortune of being upgraded to the Grand Suite for our stay with Melanie, and it was truly grand! Melanie was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. The check in was seamless, though Melanie was working, her very pleasant friend met us and kindly showed us around the suite and was a wealth of information on Almonte. The apartment is exactly as described, well appointed and very spacious with a funky design, lots of nice touches and definitely all the comforts of home. The bed is extremely comfortable and cozy. Only being the two of us, we did not use the second bedroom, but it too is nicely arranged and very welcoming. The balcony off the apartment is a gem of a spot - perfect for reading, sipping your morning coffee or afternoon tea, or for simply gazing out at your surroundings, this is where we spent much of our time. It is surrounded by mature trees so it's easy to stay cool and feel very private and secluded, truly a delight. The apartment is an easy walk to the main street of Almonte or for taking the lovely river walk. We'd highly recommend a stay with Melanie and can't wait to return for another visit. Thanks Melanie!"

"Wonderful and comfortable place to stay I highly recommend."

"Melanie was there with a smile when I arrived, showing me all I needed to know about my stay in the Junior Suite. I stayed for a week and found the unit to be just the right size for me. Having a full kitchen was wonderful not only for cooking my meals but also for preparing take-away lunches. The bed was very comfy and clean, and having unlimited use of internet and Netflix was great for rainy evenings. Old Almonte downtown was steps away as was the pretty River Walk. I would definitely stay here again. Melanie was a thoughtful host, checking to make sure I had everything I needed."

"Love love love staying at Almonte Suites. This visit I stayed in the Junior Suite which is on the ground floor. (I stayed in the upstairs suite in December). As before, Melanie made me feel right at home. She texted me the day before I arrived to make arrangements for someone to be there to give me a key, and again the day after I arrived to be sure everything was OK. The kitchen has everything you could need, the living room is comfy and the bed is the most comfortable I've ever slept in (other than the bed upstairs which is just as comfortable :) This apartment was just perfect for my needs. Thank you for making such a lovely place to stay!"

"My husband and I stayed at the Almonte Suites (Junior) for five nights in April 2016. The suite was clean, convenient and comfortable, just as advertised. Melanie was very welcoming, showed us around the suite and checked in several times to ensure we were comfortable. The suite has a Keurig and Melanie kindly provides coffee, tea and milk in the fridge. The space is very compact (the shower is a little tight) but bright and nicely decorated. The suite is in a great location, walking distance to great restaurants and Almonte's historic main street."

"Just got back from one night in the junior suite. I highly recommend this place. Clean, central, quiet, well equipped, wifi, free parking and a very responsive host. What else can you ask for?!! thanks Melanie! Hope to be back."

"The place was perfect for us, well equipped and exactly as described. We appreciated the thoughtful little extras such as fresh milk pods in the fridge to go along with the coffee, very hight quality sheets on the comfy bed, and an umbrella. The location couldn't have been better - with cafes and shops just around the corner and the river walk close by. This was my first time to Almonte and I was charmed by the whole town. The only suggestion I would make is to add a curtain to the bedroom doorway for a bit more privacy."

"I rented melanies house for my entire bridal party and myself. The grand suite was perfect for all of us to get our hair done and there is also a little solarium type balcony which had alot of natural light for us to get our makeup done. It was perfect!"

"Melanie was waiting at the home when we arrived, and she showed us around her beautifully renovated home, of which we were renting just a junior suite. She sorted out some parking for our car, and even drove us to the wedding we were attending!! So awesome! The bed was extremely comfortable and the room had everything we needed. The house is so conveniently located to the beautiful heart of Almonte. We would highly recommend staying with Melanie when you visit the Almonte area."

"Melanie made us feel very welcome, and was extremely accommodating during our stay."

"Melanie's junior suite was perfect for our weekend away, to attend a family wedding at the herb garden. Very clean , comfortable bed, walking distance to downtown Almonte. It was a pleasure to meet our host , who provided us with information of the area and fresh towels for our stay. Thanks for making us feel at home."

"The Almonte Suites was an AMAZING find! Melanie is a wonderful host. The Junior suite was beautiful. It is completely furnished. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking pans and dishes. Parking behind house and across the street. Very very very very clean. It is in downtown Almonte. Close (5minutes) to quaint shoppes you can walk to as well as a few delicious restaurants. The house is close to the water and it has river walk too. You are less than 30 minutes to Ottawa, Arnprior and Carlton Place. You are 20 minutes to the shopping outlets. It is in an ideal place. It is very quiet and quaint but close to the city. I would stay here again and again and recommend the Almonte Suites to everyone! A hidden gem!"
"My wife stayed and had a wonderful time at the Almonte suites. Communication was great, location is awesome and there was alot of space for her to relax. She had a great time and would stay again. Thanks Melanie."
"Melanie made me feel very welcome at the Almonte Suites. Very sweet apartment and has everything you need to stay comfortably for a weekend. The town of Almonte is beautiful and parking was not an issue. I would most certainly return for a visit if I am ever in the area again. I highly recommend The Almonte Suites, it was a very pleasant stay!"

"Absolutely fantastic host! Super friendly and helpful! "
- Paula, June 2016
"he suite we stayed in was extremely pleasant. Modern appliances were clean and there were extra touches like mood lighting that were an added bonus. The furniture was very comfortable. This B&B is located in a quaint little town that has much to do- there are nice walks to take that include waterfalls, a Farmer's Market and plenty of nice shops with beautiful architecture throughout.. Melanie is a very gracious host! She accommodated our late arrival and inquired as to our comfort. We could not have asked for a nicer stay except that it would last a little longer."
- Patrick, January 2016
"Great location in a lovely town. The proprietor is a very nice, helpful woman who really made sure that we were happy and comfortable throughout our stay. The accommodation itself is warm, private, and an ideal alternative to hotel accommodation."

"The bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept in. I was even checking the pillow brand afterwards to try and buy myself some! Wonderful little space and close to everything :)"

"We had a great stay with Melanie. Rooms were comfortable, and place was very clean. We were greeted upon arrival and were shown around the house. I would stay again.our paragraph here."

'We had a great time staying at Melanie's. She met us personally and let us check in early. The place was clean and better than the pictures. We would stay here again."
- Paul, September 2015
"We recently enjoyed a stay at The Almonte Suites. Excellent location...We were a 2 minute walk from quaint downtown Almonte - farmers market, butcher shop, boutiques, restaurants and massage therapy! We attended a wedding at The Herb Garden (only 12 minutes away) and downtown Ottawa was 40 minutes. The suite was clean, spacious and just like the pictures. We had family rent the junior suite and it was great to be altogether. Melanie was very pleasant, helpful and kind! We would highly recommend a stay at The Almonte Suites!!"
"Our host stayed in touch as the booking date approached and met us at the door upon arrival, showing us through the accommodation space to let us know where everything was. The suite was just as she'd described it and as shown in the photos on the listing. In fact, it was even more spacious and charming than we'd expected. The location was great...just a short walk to everything we wanted to do and see in Almonte and close enough to Kanata/Ottawa for business purposes. We all enjoyed the nearby restaurants and eclectic shops/galleries, as well as the lovely landscape of the area and the many historic stone structures. I would happily recommend it to anyone else looking in this area for comfortable accommodation with lots of character."
Karen, June 2015
"Melanie greeted us with a warm smile and an abundance of information. We stayed in the Almonte Grand Suite. It was everything and more than what we hoped for, very spacious and tastefully decorated, wonderfully comfortable beds. All four of us fell in love with the great back deck / tree house and we were happy to have complimentary tea and coffee. The town of Almonte and Mississippi Mills are remarkably beautiful and the people are welcoming and friendly."
- Anne and Paul
"My visit here was quite pleasant. Rooms were clean and I enjoyed the comfort of having a full suite instead of just a bed like at a hotel."
