Our experience at the Brass Bell B&B was absolutely PERFECT from reservation to the last good-bye waved at the door! We were received warmly and with big smiles. The Brass Bell is a charming and cozy property; impeccably clean. Our room was very comfortable and neatly arranged. A look around, and you realize the amount of care and dedication put... More

Rooms and bathrooms were comfortable and impeccably clean. There is an upstairs guest lounge fitted out with coffee, water and soft drinks. Breakfast was good and Julie and Bob Bonnell helpful and charming. Though I had worried that it was "too far out of town" we found it convenient and easy to get to. To the hosts: Watch the scented...

The Brass Bell, owned by Julie and Bob Bonnell, is charming and in an excellent location on the very quiet Mary St., just 3 minutes from downtown NOTL. Bob could not be funnier and Julie any more adorable and charming. Bob's quite the breakfast cook! Everything is yummy He looks pretty cute in his Brass Bell apron. This long married... More

We stayed for 2 nights in mid-September with another couple (who knew the host couple personally), so we may have been treated specially...although the hosts are lovely people who (we suspect) treat ALL of their guests like friends. We were asked about our personal tastes and our breakfast was tailored accordingly! Beds and bathrooms were flawless. Bedrooms were spacious and... More

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

Stayed at The Brass Bell for one night whilst visiting Niagara Falls with family who live in Canada. Julie and Bob were great hosts and the B&B itself was lovely. 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.
