Hillcrest Inn
Ranked #1 of 13 Niagara Falls B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We stayed at the Hillcrest Inn for our honeymoon the second week of October 2013. We liked it so well we inquired about buying the place next door!!! This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast, and future B&B’s that we stay at will have quite a challenge to meet the high standards and quality that Hillcrest provided during our stay. What we liked about it was the ambience of the early 1900's charm. Cassidy, her husband, and team took care of every detail- clean room and bathroom, with fresh flowers, chocolates, apples and water, cozy sitting rooms, porch outside overlooking the beautiful garden and Niagara River beyond. And now let’s talk about the breakfast served every morning in either the fabulously appointed dining room or the sunroom. You literally do not have any desire to have lunch after tasting Cassidy’s over the top, five star, gourmet, decadent, nouvelle cuisine! Whoever heard of crème brulee French toast, or Portobello mushroom topped with poached egg, fresh spinach, and just the correct amount of cheese and seasoning, or opulent fresh fruit always presented with the most creativity on antique china- Limoges perhaps? This was better than Downton Abbey! There are books and dvd’s to borrow, wonderful coffee and biscotti ready, and if we had questions about the area we received helpful answers. We will recommend Hillcrest Inn to all our friends and family. Thank you, Cassidy.

We stayed at Hillcrest in early Oct 13 and this is an amazing B&B, probably my favourite! The house is beautifully decorated throughout and we were lucky enough to stay in the Master Suite. It has the prettiest bathroom, which comes equipped everything you could need! I loved it so much I kept taking photos of the room and not the Falls! In the guests sitting room there were more drinks provided than we'd ever seen, and also freshly baked muffins. Cassidy also came out with a plate of fresh cookies for us - how lovely! She had Indigo with her and she is such a little cutie! Our bed was so comfortable and had been 'turned down' when we got back in the evening, with scrummy chocolates on the pillows - thank you! It was lovely to lie in bed and listen to the river and the falls flowing. Breakfast was really delicious - and we love how guests in American B&Bs all sit at one huge table and eat together in a relaxed and unhurried way, it's so friendly. Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful :)

I am so pleased to have booked our room at the Hillcrest Inn for our visit to Niagara Falls. The house is beautiful and comfortable and we were fortunate to stay in the Master Suite which has a balcony and has views of the river. It was a joy to meet Cassidy and her baby Indigo who is a darling little girl. Cassidy is an exceptionable hostess and her breakfasts were amazing. Cassidy's assistants were also really helpful in giving advice on whatever questions we asked and I thank them for a personal experience which you often do not get by staying in hotels. I highly recommend the Hillcrest Inn as a place to stay in Niagara Falls. The only observation I have is that this beautiful B&B is not really suitable for families with young children, but perfect for couples.
Thanks Cassidy for a wonderful stay.

This place was just lovely. Excellent location, close to the falls attractions but on the most charming street. The house was beautifully decorated. Breakfast was delicious with an excellent presentation. One of my favorite B&B experiences. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful home, tastefully decorated. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Cassidy and her husband were welcoming and helpful, and her little daughter is a darling. I am sure the new baby will be so when she gets old enough.
Cassidy leaves out fresh baked goods, and there is a tea and coffee making facilities, and its nice after a bit of sightseeing to sit in the pleasant conservatory and enjoy a piece of cake and a hot drink.
We lost our car keys on our trip over to the Canadian side, and Cassidy could not have been more help... phoning all the places we had been to enquiring if any keys had been found.
For our own reasons we were unable to let Cassidy know we were leaving early on our last morning, long before the appointed time for breakfast, and Cassidy rustled up some sour dough toast, strawberry jam, and fresh strawberries, which, at that hour, suited us well.
The breakfasts were always home made and quite delicious. An added attraction is that you can park your car and forget about it. You can walk over to Goat Island, you can walk across the bridge to Canada, and several restaurants are within walking distance.
I would recommend Hillcrest Inn to anybody without hesitation.

I chose the Hillcrest due to the ratings that were on tripadvisor. Needless to say, the Hillcrest exceeded my expectations.

The house itself is beautiful and the room that were booked in was also quite lovely.

Cassidy and her daughter were also a delight. I would not hesitate to book here again the next time I go to Niagara Falls.
