This charming boutique hotel is our favorite place to stay when visiting NOTL. The hostess, Cindy, is very accommodating and manages to run the hotel perfectly. The rooms are spotless and the furniture very comfortable. The breakfast, which is included, is spectacular. Cindy creates picturesque meals that are not only substantial but scrumptious. The restaurant - Ginger - is also a wonderful venue for dinner. The food is delicious, fresh and very inventive. We highly recommend this hotel. You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Canada, with two nights spent at the Orchid Inn. Our room was spotless and the king size bed was super comfortable. Cindy was a great hostess, always concerned about the comfort and happiness of her guests. Breakfast both mornings included fresh fruit and was always more than we could eat. Although not in the heart of the business district (aka shopping galore), it was the perfect location for us. We biked everywhere we went during the day (we could have biked at night, but who wants to arrive at a dining destination a sweaty mess or in unappropriate biking attire?), saving on parking fees and any traffic congestion. If you're wondering why I did not rate this property excellent, it is only because of the lock on our door (room 3)--we told Cindy there was a problem, but I don't think she understood the "mechanical" issues. My husband (not everyone has his talent) finally fixed the door so that the lock worked properly, but it was an inconvenience nevertheless. I would absolutely stay at Orchid Inn should we visit NOTL again.

Enjoyed a perfect stay at the Orchid Inn this past weekend. Cindy is a fabulous host offering great service with a smile. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast both mornings was excellent. Lots of variety with everything fresh and nicely presented. Loved all the magazines available for reading before bed! We will definitely return to the Orchid Inn and wouldn't hesitate recommending to others. Thanks Cindy!

If I ever return to Niagra on the Lake I will definitely stay at the Orchid Inn. The room was spacious and clean. The linens were high quality. The location is great. The food at the Ginger restaurant was healthy and delicious. Some of the best meals we had on our 3 week journey through Ontario. Best of all, the owner was friendly and interesting to talk to. If you don't take the time to have a conversation with this amazing woman you are missing out on the best part of the experience. Her sons, who run the restaurant, were wonderful as well. Thank you Cindy, Thane and Seth for making our time there memorable.

I planned a birthday getaway for my boyfriend and I for 2 nights and my expectations were truly exceeded. Cindy, the owner was so sweet and accomodating. She knew my name on arrival and was happy to share her knowledge of the town and activities to do. She asked if 9am was good for breakfast as we were the only 2 that night (not suprising for a Monday).
The 4 poster bed was very comfortable, the A/C worked great and the tub was a perfect size for two. I asked if Cindy could get us some ice and she returned with ice, 2 wine glasses and a bottle opener :)
Breakfast was a highlight for us! Delicious coffee, great portion, including fresh fruit and some chocolate for dessert :) We also had dinner on the Tuesday evening at her son's restaurant Ginger. Delicious meal and of course, great wine.
Location is great! Not exactly walking distance to the Old Town, but there is lots of parking within 2 blocks of everything there.
For the price we paid, I don't think I would at stay anywhere else.

My husband and I spent one night at the Orchid Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary - I couldn't have asked for anything better! We were seeing an afternoon show at the Shaw Festival and wanted to check-in a bit earlier so that we could get ready - Cindy was extremely accommodating! When we arrived, she was waiting for us at the front door and she gave us directions to the theatre and showed us to our room. We stayed in room 9 and it was perfect for our needs. The bed was amazingly comfortable, the room was spotless and inviting, and the ensuite bathroom was extremely clean. Breakfast the next morning was just the icing on the cake. It was one of the most delicious breakfasts I've had! Each room had their own private table in the attached restaurant and we were served by Cindy. Glasses of orange juice were waiting for us and an unlimited supply of coffee and tea. The food was incredible! Cindy is a wonderful hostess - so nice, welcoming, and helpful. The Orchid Inn is the perfect blend between a bed&breakfast and a hotel. We will definitely be visiting again!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9 and it was a great size for us - the bed was incredibly comfortable!

We recently stayed at the Orchid Inn, a lovely bed and breakfast place in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The inn is within walking distance from the downtown area and is easily accessible either on foot or by car. Our stay there was fantastic! The inn itself radiates peace and comfort. The room we had was immaculate. Everything was impeccable. It included a sitting area with a small couch and chair and an electric fireplace. Feng shui must have been used to decorate it. The pale palette was serene. The floral prints in the bedroom area matched the print in the bathroom which matched the floral arrangement in the bathroom. We had breakfast in the Ginger Restaurant both days of our stay. The food was incredible-- beautifully arranged on the plate, colorful, full of flavor and texture. Cindy is the person who makes all of this possible. Her warmth and friendliness light up the place. In fact, we believe that her personality is at the heart of the Inn. We would definitely stay there again and encourage others to do so.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet. We had a back room that faced the side and back yards -- wonderfully peacef...
