“Comfortable and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2011

We had a very comfortable, enjoyable stay at Merlot House, Niagara on the Lake. Michael and Shirley, our congenial hosts, were very welcoming and we loved the decor and the peaceful, relaxing ambience of the rooms. Breakfasts were scrumptious and we particularly enjoyed the Butler's Pantry.
The location is perfect - an easy, pleasant walk into town.
We would certainly like to return, and we will book early to avoid disappointment. Word will get around that this B. & B. is special!

Thanks and thank you for your kind hospitality with hot water bottle and heating pad.

Marylou and Adam, Stoney Creek, Ontario.

Room Tip: The Merlot is spacious with a double whirlpool

- parking available
- wonderful friendly hosts upgraded us to their best suite
- plentiful homemade breakfast which was delicious and even included freshly squeezed orange juice and an Italian chocolate to go with coffee!
- nice layout of B&B privatizing guest areas from host areas - only guest rooms upstairs all with ensuite and gas fireplace and cable tv (bottled water, although the tap water is potable, and wine glasses and games, such as backgammon and cards, provided in room), guest only dining room (with gas fireplace), and guest only lounge area with computer with complimentary internet and games and books AND guest only butler's pantry with sink, and coffee/tea/pop available at all times including a mini-fridge with complimentary small snacks like cheese, apples, and yogurt.
- very tastefully decorated with obvious attention to detail
- comfortable bed, thick towels and bathrobes as well as fragrant soap/shampoo/conditioner provided
- very clean
- hosts gave us a lovely parting gift (wine accessory) as well as free sample cards for various wineries
- good location on a quiet residential street, just around the corner from the Pillar and Post, walking distance to main street of town.
- it is clear that these hosts have travelled and understand what people want for a home away from home.
- would definitely recommend it to anyone and would go back again
