We stayed here for a night in April, and couldn't have felt more taken care of. The house was immaculate and the hosts were very welcoming. Our room, the Merlot room was large, with a king four poster bed and a comfortable arm chair. It also had a great en-suite bathroom with a large jacuzzi tub. The hosts arranged a... More

We stayed for one night at this lovely B&B in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The owners were very helpful and made us feel at home. The room was very clean and cozy. The breakfast was nice too. We'll definitely stay again.

A return visit to Merlot House It's September 22, 2013. We spent our wedding anniversary staying three nights at Merlot House to see some Shaw Festival plays. For logistical reasons, we hadn't been to this B&B since last year. It remains a great place. The Merlot Room is still their best accommodation: king - size bed, comfy linen, nice sitting... More

I found Merlot House B&B through a quick search of tripadvisor. Typically I do not like B&B's and prefer to stay in hotels. I often find B&B's are old homes, cluttered with old crap. I found Merlot House to be very modern and clean, with very minimal amounts of "clutter" which I often think of when I think of B&B's.... More

Shirley and Mike run their B&B as they'd like to be treated while traveling: first-class comfort all the way. From the initial welcome to the outstanding breakfast fare, they are wonderful hosts who provide beautiful accommodations with generous "extras" throughout the house. The location is ideal to town and the theatres, the wineries, and local sights and both hosts are... More
