We stayed at The Brass Bell for one night in the Down east room. The accommodations were clean, spacious and quiet. The breakfast was very good. The hosts do a great job of accommodating any dietary restrictions and preferences and the breakfast was so hearty we were good for the entire day of sightseeing in NOTL. The hosts are just... More

We have stayed at The Brass Bell several times since it opened over a decade ago and the quality of everything--while high from the beginning--has improved over the years, especially the bedding and decor. Bob and Julie are wonderful hosts and walking encyclopedias of everything worth doing in NOTL and Niagara Falls. This last visit we brought friends from the... More

Very knowledgeable hosts and the meal at the The Old Firehall restaurant, recommended by our hosts, was the best I've very had in a Fire Station. The 'Firefighters' Steak was... More

Julie and Bob were wonderful hosts, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in the captains quarters which was very well appointed and a clean en suite. Breakfast was delicious and prepared promptly at 9am.

We just returned from spending a night at The Brass Bell. Our hosts, Bob and Julie Bonnell were extremely friendly and full of ideas for restaurants an wineries to visit. The Brass Bell is less than 3 minutes from the hustle of downtown, but is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood. We stayed in the room on the main floor.... More

Julie and Bob were so welcoming, friendly and super helpful from the moment we arrived. The B&B is conveniently located in Niagara-on-the-Lake and was easy to find. There is lots of common space at the Brass Bell, including a fridge to store wine or grab a soft drink. Breakfast in the morning was very tasty - and we were able... More

Bob and Julie Bonnell are awesome hosts. Upon arrival they will ask if you have any dietary issues and give you a tour of the bnb. Bob will take your luggage to your room. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean, as is your room. A TV is provided. The mattress and bedding are in excellent condition. My husband... More

The ambiance of the home and the room was wonderful and welcoming. the decor was exquisite. I was amazed at the attention to detail in the bathroom. The decor was lovely but more... More
