Deciding where to stay on a three week trip across Canada was a daunting prospect. Ontario alone is four times the size of England, and finding unusual, beautiful places to stay could have been like finding the proverbial needle in a very large haystack. That was until I stumbled across this gem of a guide amidst the ranks of its better known bedfellows Lonely Planet et al. And what a find.
The ethos of the Greenwood guides is to find truly wonderful places to stay, places that will transform your trip and have you returning again and again. Every place has been personally visited by their clearly dedicated team, and not once did I feel that I could have made a better choice. From my B&B in Toronto, to my lighthouse in Novia Scotia and my houseboat in British Columbia, I felt pampered, revived and thoroughly spoilt. This is a book for the more independent, adventurous traveller; don't expect chain hotels and anonymity. Rather you will find real people, delicious food and places miles down dirt tracks that you would never have found by yourself. An essential appendage to anyone holidaying in Canada who is after the unusual, the artistic and the downright fantastic.
