“A great Bed ad Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Spent one night here in June 2013. This historic house is beautiful and the hosts are terrific. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable in all aspects. Our carefully prepared and presented breakfast consisted of a fresh fruit and yogurt appitizer followed by a superb eggs benedict. Fresh squeezed juice, fresh baked croisants and coffee or tea made a perfect start to our day. On future visits to Niagara on the Lake will include a stay at Historic Lyons House. It was the hottest day and night so far this year. but Lyons House is fully air conditioned and if you visit on cold days, each suite has its own fireplace. Very comfortable in any weather.

Room Tip: Any one of the suites is excellent and very quiet

Me and my husband stayed at the Historic Lyons for two nights. We received a warm and friendly welcome when we arrived and felt very at home the whole visit. The Victorian home is beautiful and well maintained and there is onsite parking. There are three good size guest rooms, with queen beds and flat screen TV’s (with cable). The B&B is located just blocks from the main street, restaurants and entertainment. You don’t even need to get in your car until you leave. Howie & Yolanti are so friendly and ready to accommodate you in any way they can. Howie gave us some great tips for bike trails, breweries, vineyards and restaurants. Each morning there was a different delicious homemade breakfast waiting for you, I felt like we really got to know the other guest during breakfast and had great conversations.
I would absolutely recommend this Bed and Breakfast, and we plan on returning here one day ourselves.

This 3rd visit to Lyons House was as great as the first two. The location is perfect for those who wish to walk downtown, to the theaters, and to eateries. The breakfasts are delicious and varied with a different one each day. All 3 suites are excellent and beautiful and we have found our visits to be so relaxing and refreshing as we sleep so well and enjoy the company of Howie and Jolanta and their excellent suggestions on dining and wine experiences as well as other attractions. We always meet the nicest people at breakfast or enjoy talking to our hosts.
We have already planned another trip for October so you know that we just love NOTL, the shows and most of all Historic Lyons House.

Room Tip: Any of the three suites are great.

I actually thought about giving it a 6 out of 5. absolutely wonderful. fabulous service and hospitality. Upon arrival Howard met us , gave us advice, suggestions and helped make our 25th anniversary very special. Howard took us to the theater, suggested and made reservations for meals a wine tour and horse and buggy tour. I don,t think we could have been taken care of any better. also the breakfasts were very good. Beautiful clean room and great location with short walk to town. If ever back at Niagara on the lake I would not think twice as to where to stay.

We recently stayed at the Historic Lyons house for May 9 and 10, 2013. Howard was awaiting our arrival, got us settled, and immediately offered wonderful suggestions for reservations for dinner. The house itself is immaculate, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. We spent an evening in the back garden having some wine and conversation, the common area has very comfy couches with a fireplace which was perfect to read a book by on a rainy day.
Now for the breakfast..........absolutely top-notch! Howard's culinary skills are outstanding, we didn't need to eat again until suppertime. Gourmet food at it's finest.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to any and all travellers, you are guaranteed a wonderful stay!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay with Howard and Jolanta, who are the perfect hosts; mindful of guests privacy, warm and cheerful, and offering support regarding restaurants, wine tours and theatre. The house itself is beautifully decorated with fantastic artwork throughout. The grounds and the neighborhood are lovely, all within a short walk to the main street. The small touches of wine glasses, chocolates and spotlessly clean rooms, coupled with the sumptuous breakfasts ensures we will be returning regularly!

My partner and I stayed at the Historic Lyons House back in February and had a wonderful experience. The beautiful house, lovely owners and the gourmet breakfast (homemade croissants and eggs benedict, all with a delicious parfait) totally made our trip. It was my first experience with a B&B and was definitely a great introduction. I would love to go back in the summer to see this town at its finest. I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake.
