This is our second stay at Dean and Lyn's Amarula House. Prior to finding this gem, we had stayed at hotels in NOTL but after staying here we will never look for another place again! It is so hard to write a review when everything is wonderful so I will start with the owners. Most of the time you see... More

We booked two rooms in this wonderful b&b over a January weekend during the Niagara Ice Wine Festival. The location is perfect. It's about 2-3 short blocks to the Main Street in NOTL and all of it's cute shops and restaurants. Two short blocks to the Olde Angel Inn and some great beer! The Buffalo Room is very large and...

Amarula B&B is first class, very friendly and helpful (with luggage) owner, with full breakfasts to die for. Lovely rooms and the whole experience was great. Near to the theatres and shops and a swimming pool for hot days! Highly recommend it.

Two weeks after making a reservation (and three weeks before our intended stay) the owner cancelled our reservation; a repeat customer wanted the room, so she just threw us out, saying she'd find us another room at NOTL. When my wife expressed some distress (and disbelief) the owner first got snippy ("I don't see why you're making such a big... More

Just got back from spending 4 days in NOTL. It is so nice knowing that we will never have to make a decision on where we want to stay! My husband and I along with my sister-in-laws recently stayed at the Amarula House. You know how they say, first impressions are important? Well, as we drove up to the home... More

Perfect location: easy walking distance from all three Shaw theaters and a variety of restaurants and shops. Spacious room with comfortable bed (pillow-top, I think). Delicious breakfasts, with fabulous fresh fruit, baked goods, and hot foods. The breakfast room is set up to encourage conversations with Lyn and other guests. All in all, a great choice for a NOTL vacation.

Great location...walking distance to Queen Street and theatres. Very comfortable and nicely decorated accommodations, large bedroom, large bathroom. Lynn as our host was humorous, endearing and very knowledgeable. We highly recommend Amarula House and we look forward to staying there again very soon.

Amarula house is in an ideal location for both of the Shaw Theatres or just for touring the town. Rooms are more than adequate – roomy, comfortably furnished and clean. They are quiet and private. Large washroom with claw foot tub and separate shower. Our suite, the Buffalo suite had its own sitting room with a gas fireplace and a... More

Went out of her way to accommodate our wishes. I was looking forward to tswala, biltong, putu, koeksisters and konfyt for the breakfast with a South African flavor but my companions seemed to prefer and really enjoy what we got. We'll go back again if we can get a reservation next time.
