“We Love This Place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Just got back from our 2nd stay at Bernard Gray Hall. Gloria & Henry are wonderful hosts. Beautiful, comfortable, large rooms. Wonderful breakfast (Henry's poached eggs are stunning). Very close to Queen Street so you can easily walk anywhere you choose. Would recommend without hesitation and will be back ourselves.

We stayed here for one night and found it to be perfect location for walking the town and seeing a play. The hosts are helpful in a low key way. Breakfast was tasty. The bed was very comfotable. All in all for an older house it was pretty comfortable. And we enjoyed seeing the cats who went in and out at will. It was defintely worth the stay. The town is very charming and walkable.

We've been attending the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Ontario, Canada for a number of years, the last several of which we've stayed with Gloria & Henry at their Bernard Gray Hall B & B. "Our" room is very comfortable, wifi works great and Henry's breakfasts are good and certainly plentiful. With the Festival theatres all within 5 or six walking minutes, it could not be more convenient. We will no doubt continue to stay there during our yearly visits.

The old house that was once a doctor's office and residence is very warm and comfortable. Our hosts, Gloria and Henry Szylak were very accommodating and friendly. The house sits just 2 blocks from the main intersection in NIagara-on-the-lake. Close to everything. The Shaw Festival theatre is just a short distance away.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Shaw room that overlooks 3 sides of the building.

We stayed at Bernard Gray Hall for only one night but we'll be back.

Gloria and Henry Szylak are wonderful, knowledgeable, helpful hosts and their home is very comfortable, clean and quiet. Our room had some very nice antiques plus we had the use of the lounge (with a very good book selection), front portico (equipped with a small bar fridge!), yard and pool. Free wi-fi is also available.

The breakfast was very, very good. We had fresh baked blueberry muffins, fruit salad, orange juice, coffee, bacon and eggs (any way you want), breads and a variety of wonderful jams.

Bernard Gray Hall is very close to everything in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

In a Canadian town(NOTL) on the Niagara River there is great theatre at the Shaw Festival. And an abundance of hotels and B&Bs.During our many visits there, we stayed at various ones. We found a keeper on a previous trip and that choice was reinforced this time. Henry and Gloria have been hosting for 22 years and are not bored or boring. They attract a repeat business and that tells it all. Relaxing public spaces- indoors and out, plentiful breakfasts, Wi-Fi, and even a pool and air-conditioning. Location is ideal. Comfortable beds and baths. If they have room, book it!

Great place to stay in NOTL, close to the theatres and main shopping street, but still very quiet at night. This older, well-maintained house truly feels like a home-away-from-home -- very clean rooms, comfortable bed, full-size bathroom. Breakfast is very large and delicious, and Henry Szylak bakes something fresh every morning. Should love, or at least like, cats -- there are 4 very friendly felines in residence who are not allowed upstairs in the bedrooms but like to greet visitors in the dining room. Always a highlight of my stay in NOTL.
