“Comfortable and Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Finlay House has an excellent location. It's only a few short blocks to Queen Street and is located on a very quiet street. Pam, the owner, is a very hospitable hostess and we thoroughly enjoyed her delicious and massive quantities of breakfast. Although the furnishings downstairs are a little dated, the house was comfortable and cozy. There's a nice porch in the front and it is set up with wrought iron tables and chairs. A great spot for enjoying some wine before dinner! The downstairs room is quite small and you have to walk out and around the dining room to get to the bathroom. It's private, however, since no one is downstairs at night or before breakfast at 9am. The upstairs bedroom was very spacious and had a flat screen TV. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend the Finlay House to anyone visiting Niagara in the Lake.

Room Tip: If you can walk up stairs, the rooms are more spacious and have an ensuite bathroom.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. There is now a beautiful room divider/screen which separates the downstairs bedroom from the dining area providing much greater privacy. Robes are also supplied in the bathroom and, of course, the room rates reflect the different room sizes and facilities available.

My husband and I recently stayed for 2 nights at Finlay House whilst touring through Canada. Pam was the perfect hostess - she really has thought of everything. We were served a wonderful breakfast - everything has the personal touch. The location was great as we were able to walk into Niagara On The Lake with it's many shops and restaurants, as well as to Peller Winery.

We stayed at Findlay House for 3 nights in July 2013 (our second time there) because it's so well located that you can walk to all the theatres, and restaurants, as well as into town and to the lake front. No need for your car once you get to Niagra-on-the-Lake. It's a small, reasonably priced, personal B & B (only 3 guest rooms), in a private house. Very clean and quiet, serving a delicious breakfast prepared by Pam the owner. We'll return next year for sure!

Room Tip: Rooms have bathrooms en-suite, but one room's bathroom is down the hall.

Very spacious and clean bedroom. Easy walking distance to main shops, theatres and tourist attractions. Pam was very flexible and accommodating to our needs. She respected our privacy but was always there if we needed her. Breakfast was tasty and filling, which meant we often did not need lunch which is atypical for us!

We have just returned from our two night stay at Finlay House with our three teenage children and would strongly recommend this B&B. Pam was a welcoming and helpful host who provided an excellent healthy breakfast.
The location is less than 5 mins walk to the centre of town and in a lovely neighbourhood. The rooms were spacious, tasteful and spotlessly clean.

July 2013, my wife and I stayed at the Finlay House for a weekend getaway. Excellent location, room, breakfast, host and price. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests. All three Shaw Festival venues are a short walk away. The "old town" main street (Queen Street) is 3 short blocks away.

We enjoyed our stay at Finlay House and would recommend it to friends and family. The breakfast each day was delicious and plentiful. Our room was the William Shakespeare on the first floor. Having a private bath instead of ensuite was not a problem. Cannot say enough about the location! If you enjoy walking, you can leave the car and walk to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and the lake. Pam was a great hostess.
