We've been attending the Shaw Festival every August since 2004, but our first and favorite BnB was sold and returned to a private residence a in 2007. So we've been searching for the perfect replacement ever since, and my "average" rating for this property this year is based on comparison with 4 or 5 other BnBs in NOTL. Pam was... More

Thank you for your interesting comments. Early morning coffee or tea is, of course, available before breakfast, you only need ask. Unfortunately, I am not a mind reader and so do not know if any guests are early risers unless they tell me, as previous guests have done. The room on the ground floor has a queen size bed not...

Wonderful location. Pam was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and welcoming. The house is immaculate and all the amenities are provided. Breakfast is generous. We had a lovely stay and would stay at Finlay House again.

Finlay House is everything a B&B should be and more, from the location through the spacious, spotlessly clean rooms, to the wonderful hostess, and her delicious breakfasts. We've stayed at other Niagara-on-the-Lake B&B's but once we found Finlay House that was it. We park our car, walk to all the theaters and restaurants, and completely enjoy ourselves. The previous owner... More

Pam is a wonderful host and the setting is charming, clean and extremely well located. We would return again and again. Privacy is terrific and the amenities are all you could want. Breakfast was lovely and the area is quiet and very appealing. Any visitor to Niagara on the lake would do well to book this gem.

Finlay House was quaint, quiet and relaxed. Pam, our hostess prepared amazing breakfasts and provided helpful hints on the area. Niagara on the Lake is a hidden gem that has so much to offer. We will definitely be back.

We have been to Niagara on the Lake many times and always stayed in Hotels in Niagara, never again this B& B has made up our minds for us. We had a wonderful stay, the bedroom was large and beautifully appointed as was the en suite bathroom. The breakfasts were excellent and Pam was very friendly and interesting to talk... More

As a staff getaway we reserved all three rooms at Finlay House the weekend of June 6/7. What a great experience. The way the B&B is set up made it seem like we had rented our own house for the weekend. The owner has a separate area of the house where she lives, so the common areas was ours to... More

Charming B & B, walking distance to Lake Ontario and Queen Street shops and pubs, impeccably clean, and superb breakfast! (My favourite was the pears soaked in raspberry juice served with crème fraiche. Scrumptious!) Pam was a friendly, accommodating host. I plan to stay here again!

Niagara on the Lake was recommended to us by a Canadian friend and we were not disappointed. Finlay House was the unexpected extra. Well presented B&B, just a short walk from the centre of town and close to restaurants. Our host Pam was wonderful, delicious breakfasts, lots of tips of what to see and do. As well Pam was delightful... More

Finlay House is a charming B&B celebrating theatre and wine! Come and visit for a while. We are a short 2-3 minute stroll to Queen Street the heart of Niagara on the Lake, the prettiest town in Canada, 0.4km to Town centre. The Shaw Festival Theatre is also only a couple of blocks away. Our rooms are bright and comfortable and come with all the "mod cons" - flat screen plasma TV's with satellite and HD movie and sports channels, free WiFi internet, mini bar fridge, air conditioners (in summer), alarm clocks and hair dryers. We serve a delicious 2 course home cooked breakfast for you to enjoy. Free parking. We look forward to welcoming you soon! ... more   less
