“Be charmed!”
Reviewed 15 October 2011

Amarula house is a comfortable, welcoming base for exploring idyllic Niagara-on-the-lake. All three of the guest rooms have large comfortable beds, private baths. Lynette's gourmet breakfasts are so generous, you may not need lunch! We relied on her travel advice and recommendations. And the location simply can't be beat - just steps off the main street, with wonderful restaurants, shopping, and beautiful parks by the lake all a short stroll away (but far enough that it is QUIET!) Park the car, for free, and walk and relax. I've stayed in quite a few B&Bs, and my experiences have almost always been wonderful, but I will say that Lynette's great sense of humour and willingness to go the extra mile for her guests made our three day stay during our 1-year wedding anniversary a real joy. Now that we've gushed, I just hope we can get a room next time!

Room Tip: We stayed in both the water buffalo and leopard rooms and loved both. All the rooms are large, with...

Small B&B in a great location, convenient to downtown and all theatres, but quiet. The African-themed decor is attractive and interesting (the hostess is originally from South Africa). The Zebra room, where we stayed, was comfortable, with a nice bathroom and a separate outside entrance. Breakfasts were tasty with generous portions and lots of home-baked pastries and breads.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this bed and breakfast in Niagara on the Lake. The rooms/bathrooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfasts were delicious, and the hostess was helpful with sightseeing suggestions. I would definitely choose this B&B again!

We were introduced to Lyn and Dean by previous owners of this property. We've been coming here ever since they opened. Can't even remember how many times we've returned. This is truly our home away from home. Every time we come and think of buying something for ourselves to come to we decide against buying as there is no need as long as Lyn and Dean tolerate us (some of our visits are so long that it feels like this is our house...). We absolutely love coming and if not for our crazy schedule we would be there a lot more. The most accommodating hosts we've ever met, truly feel like a family (or better ;-). Breakfasts are unbelievably tasty and nutritious. The very best beds in town! Location can't be better and the pool to top it up! Absolutely #1 for us and we are not easy to please for variety of reasons. We are very thankful to have a place of escape and wish we could come more...

On a quiet street very close to theaters, Amarula House is a gem. The rooms are lovely and always spotless and the breakfasts are beautiful and plentiful, full of home-baked extras. There is a lovely pool behind the house for guest use. The host couple is remarkably warm and interesting, ready to offer helpful information. Our first choice in Niagara-on-the-Lake!

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!
