      Making Waves Boatel is a dream!

      Delightful B&B, wonderful regional food for breakfast, quiet and comfortable room. A highlight was the view from the deck of the downtown night lights, including the fabulous light show from the CN Tower. The hosts were very hospitable, and the location is wonderful. I'd stay again!
