I proudly brought a friend to visit Niagara-on-the-lake (from the UK), and made the decision last minute during busy season! Mike and Shirley were so accommodating, and are perfect hosts. The bedrooms are cosy and large, the breakfast was completely delicious (you won't need lunch!), the house itself is very lovely. It's everything (and more) you'd expect from a first... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this lovely bed and breakfast recently. It was situated very close to the shopping and restaurants in Niagra-on-the-Lake. The innkeepers, Mike and Shirley, were warm and friendly and helped us reserve tickets to the theater. Our room was very neat and comfortable. Breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. Our hot egg dish was to... More

We had stayed here two years ago and when it came time to plan our honeymoon it wasn't difficult to imagine spending our relaxing time away back at this B&B. Mike & Shirley are great hosts and they made us feel very welcome each time. The Merlot Suite that we stayed in was very warm and comfortable and the breakfasts... More

We spent two nights with the McBrides and were completely impressed with their home, their hospitality and all the amenities that make a B&B special. The breakfast part was so good that we even were able to skip lunch. We will return.

We spent two nights at the Merlot House and were incredibly pleased with our stay. Mike and Shirley are the consummate hosts! The Merlot Room in which we stayed was clean, comfortable and very inviting. The same can be said for the Chardonnay Room in which our in-laws stayed. Breakfast on both days was delicious and the presentation incredible! What... More

Mike and Shirley manage to combine a professionally run business with a relaxed elegance that makes a stay at Merlot House a unique pleasure. The artistic additions from their many travels enhance the feeling of staying in their home rather than a sterile over hyped expensive hotel . Gourmet breakfasts were served in a beautifully appointed breakfast room. Lovely deck... More

Mike and Shirley are the best. Our stay exceeded expectations in every way - the breakfasts were incredible and the rooms were beautiful and very clean. Our hosts were very thoughtful, even going so far as to buy pastries from a local bakery with a happy birthday message for my wife (it was her 30th birthday). When they cleaned our... More

Just stayed two nights in the twin room--cant say enough about this beautiful home and the owners, Mike and Shirley. There are only 3 rooms, one king, one queen and the twin each with own bath. Everything from linens to the furnishings very high-end though price was considerably more reasonable than Hilton outside of town. HIghly recommend and will definitely... More

My husband and I didn't know what to expect when we booked a suite at Merlot House. It was a wonderful experience. High quality in everything: the food, the cleanliness, the quietness, the hosts that were simply awesome. Thank you so much for the memorable experience at the Merlot House!!
