Great location, quiet neighbourhood. The Inn's grounds and main house is lovely. Wendy is very pleasant and accommodating. We stayed in the Garden Cottage and the Stoneleigh. Both rooms are clean, however we found the decor and overall state of the rooms tired and in need of updating. The Garden Cottage has a very strange layout, the bathroom sink is...

My Mom and I stayed at the O.M.I. in May of 2016 for five nights. We had a lovely stay in the Library room.
