My husband and I recently stayed at Merlot House B&B and had a lovely time! Mike and Shirley were excellent hosts. The suite we stayed in was spacious, very well kept, clean, beautifully decorated and had a cozy and very comfortable atmosphere. The home made breakfast was absolutely delicious!

This is just a fantastic place to stay when you are looking to treat yourself. It was way more than my wife or I was expecting. The rooms are elegantly appointed without being tacky. Very comfortable beds (I don't remember much after my head hit the pillow). The breakfasts were the bomb - you really don't need to bother with... More

Well prepared and tasty. The innkeepers, Mike and Shirley go that extra mile (kilometer) to make your stay enjoyable. They knew that my wife and I... More

A wonderful, very clean and comfortable place to stay in Niagara on the Lake. Not only that, the breakfasts are really terrific! I would stay there again in a heart beat. It is a little walk to to the main street but the streets are so lovely it is not a hardship.

We highly recommend Merlot House. The breakfast cooked each morning was of an excellent standard and different every morning The house is really nicely furnished with everything you need at a b&b. The hosts were extremely helpful with advice about the area and made us feel very much at home.

Wonderful stay. Mike and Shirley were perfect hosts. House and room was beautiful. Large, comfortable king size bed. En suite bathroom. Very close to downtown and minutes away from wineries.

My husband and I recently made a last minute trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake to celebrate our anniversary. We were so fortunate to find a room available at the Merlot House as it was a very busy week with little hotel or B&B availability. What a stroke of luck!
