“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Just returned from a stay at the Dorchester House in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Our hostess, Barbara, is a wonderful lady with lots to tell you about the area and some great added touches one would not expect. Our room was simple and clean and the ensuite bathroom featured some very fragrant lavender soaps and shampoos from a small boutique in the area. We checked this out on our way out of town and I would highly recommend the visit to the neob Lavender Boutique (neob = Niagara Essential Oils & Blends) on Niagara Stone Road. Although it was one of the hottest days of the year we were able to enjoy our coffee on her shady patio amidst the tall trees, flowers and birds. She has a resident cat and a beautiful dog named Wicker -- a Norweigian Elkhound. Wicker kept mainly to herself and was not bothersome for any of the guests. Barbara's breakfast was out of this world. If you go expecting cereal and milk you will be highly disappointed. There were five of us staying as guests and a full buffet of cheeses, meats, beans, mushrooms, yogurt, roasted potatoes, 2 wonderful casseroles with tomatoes, cheese, eggplant, sausages, yum! This was more of a brunch than breakfast, so make sure you have a good morning appetite! This was just a quick getaway for us, but I would highly recommend this B&B. It is close to the water, to the wineries and to the many shops that make up Niagara on the Lake!

We had the pleasure of staying at Barbara’s charming B&B in April. We rented two rooms for one night. Both rooms were clean, comfortable, and quaint. Just the ambiance we were hoping for in NOTL! Although the rooms were very nice, what really sets apart this B&B from the rest is our dynamic hostess Barbara, and her extraordinary culinary talents! Barbara prepared an extensive and delicious breakfast that was anything but typical. In addition to flavourful coffee, locally made preserves and fresh baked breads and pastries, Barbara’s gastronomic delights included smoked salmon, warm brie, sautéed mushrooms, chacuterie, and paddypan squash…a foodie paradise!

Normally, we can’t wait to hit the wineries right after breakfast but at the Dorchester we stuck around until well into the afternoon drinking several pots coffee and enjoying lively conversation with Barbara and two other guests!

We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely and charming B & B a year ago. Our hostess, Barbara, was friendly and beyond accommodating. The room was beautiful and the little extra touches of beautifully scented soaps added to the ambiance. Barbara prepared an ample and delicious breakfast with incredible home-baked goods, which were made available by the way, during the entire stay.
Sadly, there was no availability this past weekend and we chose another B&B - no comparison!
We certainly hope to be back.

This was our first ever B&B experience and we took the whole family for the 2 rooms upstairs. Needless to say, Barbara is a fascinating lady and her breakfast was just brilliant. We had a great time at Niagara-on-the-lake and we had one of the best dinners over at Brasa near the Falls. We will definitely stop by next time whole family comes down to Toronto. Her wolfhound and the small puppy were so friendly and charming. 10/10!

How many reviews does it take to get a higher rating? Barbara is a gracious and generous hostess, fabulous cook, and great conversationalist (as are her guests). Her home and gardens are beautiful and comfortable. It is a reasonable walk to the Queen Street shops and theatres and a short drive to wineries and the Festival Theatre.

Beung by myself on a work trip in Toronto I wanted to do something for the weekend and this couldn't of been a better choice. The rooms are comfortable and clean the gardens were stunning and the breakfast outstanding - best of all were the ideas of where to go for my vineyard visits - thank you so much I have already sent other friends from NZ to niagara on the lake because of your hospitality :)
