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.

Initially chose Amarula House on a recommendation from someone in the B&B Business because our favourite B&B was unavailable. What a lovely find! Great location! We walked everywhere except for the wine touring. The exterior of the house doesn't seem to reflect the space that is found within the house! The rooms are quite large, very spacious and each room...

Your hostess is from S. Africa and the sites are aptly named, Elephant suite, etc. Excellent location, good parking and within easy walking distance of downtown. Small B&B with just 3 rooms which made for a delightful breakfast with the other guests. Pool also! Heat wave,in the 90's when I was there and my only discomfort was that the suite... More

We have just returned from our second trip to NOTL this season. We had our usual wonderful stay at Amarula House - it offers a great location ( one block off the main street in the centre of the town), very comfortable, spacious rooms and a 6 Star Breakfast!!!! This visit we were able to enjoy the lovely back garden... More

We visit NOTL annually for the Shaw Festival, and first stayed at Amarula House after our first innkeepers retired. Lyn's hospitality made us feel like old friends and thoroughly at home. The location is ideal, within a block of the main street, a short walk to all of the theaters, and around the corner from the best book shop in... More
