“Great Stay, Great Food”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Our Hosts were terrific. The breakfasts were amazing.
We used 2 rooms with 4 people and really enjoyed using the common room upstairs to get together and have a glass of wine and discuss the highlights of our days. Also enjoyed meeting other guests.
Our hosts were very knowledgable about the area and provided ideas and lots of coupons for wine tasting at local wineries. I would highly recommend staying at Almar House. Very reasonably priced for this location.

We recently stayed at the Almar House with another couple and it was a great experience. 2 of us had never stayed in a B&B, and we agreed that Chris and Sarah really raised the bar for future stays. They accomodated us last minute with booking the night before. Once we arrived, we were greeted by Chris, who handed us a bunch of coupons for our wine and bike tour, which ended up saving us quite of bit of $$. He also gave us suggestions on where to go.
The Almar House is a nice little walk to downtown, where we enjoyed a beautiful dinner.
The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and very comfrotable. The fact that all 3 bedrooms each had ensuites was both appealing and convenient.
The breakfast was by far the best part. Wow, can Chris cook!! We started with a strawberry pannacotta, and finished with Eggs Benedict. I am extremely picky when it comes to my Egg's Benni's, and I must say they were proabbly one of the best I've had. Absolutely delicious. That meal alone would have cost at least $50 per couple at a restaurant. All in all, we were extremely pleased with our stay at the Almar, and would do so again. I'll be sure to recommend it to others as well.

Cheers

We stayed at the Alamar Guest House for 2 nights in June 2013 and would stay again tomorrow. We were met by our friendly hosts Sarah and Chris who were so helpful and recommened things to see and do. We stayed in the Elizabeth room which was clean and comfy. There is a common area with a fridge, books and dvds to use. The breakfasts are truely amazing, so much thought goes into each creation and the food is of excellent quality. The guest house is in a pretty residential street only a short walk (10-15 mins) to the shops and restaurants of Niagara-on-the-Lake. We would definitely recommend this guest house to our friends and family.

This is the second time that we stayed with Chris and Sarah.. We really enjoyed the stay because of the hospitality.. They both make you feel like you are staying with them instead of sleeping at a B&B. The other fantastic quality of the B&B is the breakfast... Just the best. We've stayed at larger and smaller B&B's and this breakfast is one you don't ever want to miss.. Their company is so relaxing and pleasant. The other couples were very nice and both nights were most enjoyable. We'll be back next time we are in town.. thanks again for the pleasant stay.. Willie and Cheryl

This is a very nice B&B. We stayed in one of the rooms with a four-poster Queen bed. Room was clean and nicely decorated. It was a bit on the small side. Nice, modern bathroom.
There is a nice guest lounge that we enjoyed (although it could use another chair in it). The lounge has a guest fridge, which is nice.
Location is terrific. Chris, the host, is friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this place.

My husband and I found this place on a trip to niagara-on-the-lake, we were thrilled every thing about the house was perfect, from the room to the art work to the hosts and the new baby, the house was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was amazing, would highly recommend this place to stay. Great location too.

It was great to spend two nights at the Almar House in the height of wine harvest season in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Chris was a very accommodating host, and very knowledgeable about the area. We really appreciated the loan of two bikes used to ride around to some wineries! Breakfasts were delicious and the perfect size (sometimes I find the breakfasts served at B&Bs to be a little overwhelming...). The room was spotless and comfortable. The location within the town was perfect in my view as well - close to the business district but on a quiet street. This was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone!
