Alright, I'll start out by saying that in this review I'll stick to points neither listing them as positive or negative because it's all about perspective. One person may find a fastidiously clean house a positive while others might find it stuffy. - the host, Meheroo, is a strong personality with a biting humour. Our group enjoyed her but I've...

My husband & I spent two amazing days at John's Gate Gourmet B&B. Our hostess Meheroo is just wonderful. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, even celebrating our anniversary with champagne & arranging a gourmet dinner. The Inn is lovely, clean & impeccably maintained. The three course breakfast is truly gourmet. We were able to... More

After 45 years of vacationing at B and B's, my wife and I would have to rate Johns Gate as one of the best. Superb breakfast, excellent host, quaint rooms and beautiful setting. Our host helped plan our vacation with restaurant recommendations and sight seeing suggestions. We will be back

The owner of the St. John's Gate immediately makes you feel comfortable and at home. The house is spotless and maintained to the highest standards. The landlady is a sweetheart and couldn't be more helpful. She also has a keen sense of humour which is used to great effect as she serves you breakfast. Oh, and as for the gourmet... More

We spent a fabulous weekend here with family celebrating birthdays. Very close to downtown NOTL and nearby wineries. The breakfast was truly wonderful and the hostess was a very special lady with incredible knowledge of the region .We would not hesitate to recommend this property to all our friends and family .

Spent three delightful nights with my family, occupying all three bedrooms, this past weekend. Would go back in a heartbeat. Walking distance to all theatre action, for which Niagara On The Lake is famous, and fine varied restaurants. Fabulous wineries are within biking distance. A great family experience at a perfect B&B.

I have always being hesitant at booking into bed and breakfast but my wife enjoys them so we booked with Johns Gate. After staying at this bed and breakfast my attitude has changed, Meeheroo was like an old friend and made us feel like we were at home. (Only we didn't have to do the dishes lol) accommodations were very... More

Beautiful home, well-appointed, truly gourmet breakfast, the hostess was very knowledgeable about the region and kindly made reservations for us to restaurants and wine tour. The house is close to downtown but nevertheless peaceful on a convenient, easy to find corner, a walk away from bicycle wine tour.

After staying at this bed and breakfast I can't believe that more people have not written unfavorable reviews. Even though the place was clean and nicely kept and the location was quiet and convenient, there was not much pleasurable about staying at this bed and breakfast. The hostess was very opinionated about what you should do and where/what you should... More
