As a practicing mechanic I enjoyed this course and gained more knowledge and experience than I had. My skills went to a whole new level.

There is free parking at our building, and we're right at the end of the row of building entrances as you drive/bike in.
There is the usual assortment of motels and hotels within convenient distance of our location. Search with Google or check the Guelph accommodations page for a full directory of hotels, motels and B&B’s.
If a full-service hotel is what you're looking for, check out the Staybridge Suites in Guelph. Let them know you're attending a course at Winterborne Bicycle Institute and they'll give you a special rate for one night up to as many nights as you want. This is a suite hotel, and all rooms contain equipped kitchens. As well, there's a hot breakfast available every morning, and a hot buffet a few nights a week.
There's a recently built Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites, located a short walk from our location, at the junction of Hwy 6, Laird Rd and Southgate Dr. They have no special rates for WBI, but do participate in the Marriott corporate and other rates programs.
London House B&B is about 10km from our shop and the route is rideable in winter weather. We've had students in every class so far stay there, and everyone gives it top marks , especially for the great breakfasts. Rooms start at $70 per night with breakfast. Let them know you're attending our course and you may get a long-stay deal.
Students in several courses have also found inexpensive two-week room rentals in private homes. Guelph is a university town, with lots of off-campus housing in private homes. Quite often there is more housing available than needed, and good acommodation that's a bit further away from campus (but closer to us!) sits vacant. You can find a searchable online database of off-campus housing on the University's Student Living website.
From time to time we also become aware of private homes with rooms to let, in between the "student housing" and "B&B" categories. This information often contains private contact information, so we don't post publicly. Once you're registered, you'll get access to a protected area of our website where we do post this information. If you'd like this information in the interim, please contact us and we'll email it to you.
As students discover other places, we'll include them in this page.
