Incredible location close to shops, the water and restaurants. Full of character and history. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and really made me feel welcome and informed about this town that I’ve never been to


Very friendly, efficient and helpful service by the staff, particularly at reception. The breakfast food was delicious. The house/inn is lovely. Fantastic location - convenient walking distance to many restaurants, shopping and the university.


Breakfast was delicious, the staff was friendly. The location was stunning! Close enough to walk to anything that we wanted to see (downtown, walked to Kingston Penn) This was my first visit to Kingston, such a beautiful city.


Great breakfast on the patio, great choice of food. Quiet location, walkable distance to downtown. We've been to the Hochelaga Inn many times and always loved it. They let us put some items in their fridge, that was very helpful.
