Reviewed 9 June 2014

As a staff getaway we reserved all three rooms at Finlay House the weekend of June 6/7. What a great experience.
The way the B&B is set up made it seem like we had rented our own house for the weekend. The owner has a separate area of the house where she lives, so the common areas was ours to gather for visiting, to play games and just relax.
Pam does a wonderful job with breakfast. The poached pears were incredible. Also, thanks for the special treat to help celebrate Joan & Glenn's wedding anniversary on Sunday morning. Such a nice special touch!!!
The location is perfect. Away from the hustle and bustle of the main street of old town NOTL, but close enough to enjoy the walk there.
We all had an incredible weekend in NOTL and Finlay House was a big part of making this get-together a success. Thanks again Pam!!!

Charming B & B, walking distance to Lake Ontario and Queen Street shops and pubs, impeccably clean, and superb breakfast! (My favourite was the pears soaked in raspberry juice served with crème fraiche. Scrumptious!) Pam was a friendly, accommodating host. I plan to stay here again!

Niagara on the Lake was recommended to us by a Canadian friend and we were not disappointed. Finlay House was the unexpected extra. Well presented B&B, just a short walk from the centre of town and close to restaurants. Our host Pam was wonderful, delicious breakfasts, lots of tips of what to see and do. As well Pam was delightful to chat to, made us feel welcome and nothing too much trouble. Finlay House is highly recommended.

We had a great time in our first trip to Niagara on the lake. Pam our host in the B&B made our trip even more enjoyable and made sure we had everything we needed. The place itself is very centric, located only a few steps away from the center of downtown.

We'll definitely come back in the near future!!

Finlay house is the place to go to if you fear the tacky decor that too often comes with B&Bs. Done tastefully, the room is themed around an author and arranged with the right amount of beautiful ornaments and furniture. The room we stayed in was very spacious, yet cosy, and made us feel at home right away. The hostess Pam was very kind and cooked us wonderful breakfast, offering to help with anything we might need and making suggestions as to what to try around the town. The location is really ideal, 10 minutes walk to the main street where the shops and theatres are.
