Best B&B in Colchester for the fourth time!

I’ve had so much to say in the past week, but it’s been so busy here, I haven’t had a moment to write it down. I’ll try not to be too long winded. Maybe I’ll just send out the biggest piece of news for now:

WE WON BEST BED & BREAKFAST IN COLCHESTER for the fourth year in a row last night! Yippee!

Really? It never gets old. We are so grateful for the support we have from our new guests, returning guests, friends, family, and colleagues. We honestly feel so fortunate that we have so many great quality B&B’s in Colchester County and we all work so well together. When you are surrounded by great quality, it sets the bar high. Since this week has been Tourism Week in Canada, I put in a plug when we accepted our award and reminded the 250+ people in attendance that “Tourism is everybody’s business.” We support local businesses as much as possible and we send our guests to local businesses. Our guests visit  local attractions and restaurants, but also fill up with gas at our gas stations, buy medications at our pharmacies, and pack their coolers at our grocery stores. Each and every interaction they have at these businesses forms their opinion of what Nova Scotians are really like.

We were thrilled to receive this award for the 4th year in a row and would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us. It means so much!! You can see the complete list of winners by clicking on this sentence.

All of the other news will have to wait until tomorrow – we have to get breakfast organized for a full house…

Proof! Thank you to all who voted!! We think it's beautiful!

Belgravia Best B&B Third Year in a Row!

Last night the Truro & District Chamber of Commerce held the 2012 Best of Colchester Awards. We at the Belgravia Bed & Breakfast were honoured & delighted to be awarded the title of “Best B&B” for the third year in a row! Unfortunately, D’Arcy has been off his feet since last Sunday due to what the doctors think is a ruptured Baker Cyst, so he wasn’t able to join me. Instead, I took my parents, Dave & Deanna, as my dates! We had a lot of fun at our table, sitting with Donnie & Janice  of Eagle’s Landing B&B and Lisa & Leigh from Masstown Market.

D’Arcy & I and the whole Belgravia Bed & Breakfast team would like to extend a huge sincere “THANK YOU” to everyone who supported and voted for us! We are so grateful!
