This property is in walking distance of the falls and is easily accessed from the US. A beautiful old building with great character. The room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The hostesses culinary skills were evident at breakfast which was delicious. Breakfast around a large table with other guests gave the opportunity for conversation and travel tips.

Beautiful place to stay at! Expertly decorated with great taste. Breakfasts were delicious and plated beautifully. Innkeeper was extremely helpful and helped us to book some attractions and recommend nice dinners. We had a lovely time.

This is our second year staying at Lion's Head and it was just as great as the first year. Helena is a fabulous, outgoing hostess. She has lots of info on places to see, places to eat and things to do in Niagara besides visiting the falls. Her rooms are lovely and the house is full of beautiful, interesting touches.... More

If there were 6 stars I would have given that! Helena, the owner and innkeeper is friendly, accommodating, warm and has an effervescence to her that you will not find at a chain name hotel. She is very helpful in navigating you around town and has excellent recommendations for you to try. On top of her overwhelming knowledge of the... More

We stayed for 3 nights and truly enjoyed the stay. I was not a huge fan of B&B's because of previous experiences. This was extemely clean and had a gourmet breakfast every moning. If you get a chance to ask Helena about her travels you may decide to skip a few attractions and listen to a very interesting lady.

For our special anniversary I wanted to surprise my husband with a stay in a romantic old home with character on our first trip to Niagara Falls. The reviews of Lion’s Head were so excellent that I felt confident it would be a good experience. Imagine my disappointment when we were led into a small modern room down a hallway... More

What a wonderful experience! My husband and I visited Niagara Falls for our first time over Labor Day weekend, and it could not have been any nicer – starting with our accommodations at the beautifully decorated Lion’s Head Bed &Breakfast. The rooms were impeccably clean, comfortable, and inviting. Helena, the proprietor, was a wealth of knowledge and provided us with... More

Helena was magnificent! She was very kind, knowledgeable about the area, seemed to be very well traveled, and entertaining. We drove down to Niagara Falls and I was nervous that we would miss the check in time. Helena was very accommodating and had very detailed instructions for us when we arrived. The room looked EXACTLY how it does online and... More

This was the best idea I have had in a very long time and I am so happy we followed through. The Lion's Head B&B was a spectacular experience, attributed to the the open and friendly owner, Helena. The beautifully rustic appeal melted my heart, but meeting Helena stole my heart as she is a beautiful Soul. Her Breakfast's should... More

My girlfriend DJ and I had a most pleasant stay at the Lion's Head B&B on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Our hostess Helena was super friendly and accommodating and her breakfasts were terrific. There is only one choice for breakfast so parents with small children may have some trouble with that, although I am sure that Helena would... More
