“Wonderful, couldn't ask for anything more.”
Reviewed 19 April 2011

Never having been to a B&B before I did alot of research and was a bit unsure of what to expect. After finding Amarula House and speaking to Lyn (the owner) we booked and it was absolutely wonderful. The home is in a perfect location, 1 block from the main street. The rooms were comfortable and all recently and beautifully redone. The breakfast was delicious. Lyn was super hospitable and made our first stay at a B&B so enjoyable. Thank you Lyn.
We will most definitely return.

A friend and I stayed at this very comfortable B&B for the Ice Wine festival. The hostess was very gracious and was more than happy to help us with our weekend visit....she even offered to pick up our wine tour passes!! We were given many free wine tasting vouchers too. Our "Leopard" room on the ground level was tidy, spacious, had a cozy gas fireplace and a large, bright bathroom. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. We were able to see the other rooms and they were all very lovely too. The breakfast was plentifully with freshly baked goodies... bran muffins, spice cake and chocolate chip cookies along with fruit & yogurt. We also thoroughly enjoyed eggs with cheddar cheese, mushrooms&zucchini in a light cream sauce, sooo tasty and sauteed tomatoes. I am definitely coming back to stay here in the summer. Book early!

Ten reasons “Why we love Amarula house”:
1. there are always good conversations to be had…
2. Lyn is very friendly and welcoming
3. the food is fantastic…
4. and there is always LOTS of it
5. it’s like no other B&B we’ve been to
6. the rooms are separate from the family living quarters…
7. and they are very clean!
8. it’s a block away from the main street
9. mandolin players are welcome
10. we’d recommend it to everyone without hesitation!

What do you need to make a great B&B - clean, comfortable rooms not over decorated with clutter - check. Clean bathroom with lots of hot water - check. Soft sheets, firm pillows - check. Wonderful decorations with just the right amount of Africa - check. Wonderful hostess with great stories - check. Breakfast for both a carnivore and a vegan that were plentiful, hot and delicious - check. Close to the scene, but far enough away you don't get all the noise - check. We've stayed in over 20 B&Bs over the years and the Amarula House moves into our top 5 with no problem. We plan on going back next year and staying with Lynn and bringing friends and family with us this time.

This three bedroom B& B was the perfect accomodation for three couples who travelled to Niagara On The Lake for a weekend of shopping, golfing, visiting wineries and going to the theatre. The rooms are large, tastefuly decorated and comfortable. Each room included a modern en suite as well as a bar refrigerator. The common area for guests includes a sitting room, a balcony as well as a breakfast room. Breakfast each morning was delicious, featuring home made baked goods as well as eggs. The host and hostess, Lynette and Dean were welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful in planning events or making suggestions to enhance your holiday. A truly wonderful place to stay

Perfect in every way. Location, friendliness, cleanliness,quality of linens,matress,food,hospitality. I can't say enough about the place - and I am a bit picky. I like "nice" and we got it here. I rate it a 10 out of 10. We had three couples - so we had the whole place booked for ourselves. Having the living room to use for all six of us to sit and chat was perfect. We could leave our wine and snacks out in the livingroom for the next day and Lyn even washed our stuff too as well as the wine glasses. They are the greatest hosts and it was very interesting learning about their homeland.

My two girlfriends and I have been visiting Niagara on the Lake for the Shaw festival, for many years. The last three years, we've stayed at Amarula House, a delightful B&B just one block from the main street. We highly recommend it. The decor is attractive and different from the common B&B "chintz and faux Victorian (the owners emigrated from South Africa and the house is decorated with things that are evocative of their former home)". Lynn's breakfasts are excellent and different each day, and she remembers one's personal likes and dislikes. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and the rooms are made up daily, not always the case with B&B's. The owners are very accommodating and happy to help one get reservations or choose plays. There is a swimming pool and good off- street parking. We plan to make Amarula House our regular base whenever we are in NOTL.
