“Comfortable place and most helpful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Everything was well done by Ed & Irene from directions, security, comfort, a superb breakfast and good parking. Abacot was clean and comfortable throughout. The King George room had a really comfortable bed and the shower was easy to understand, unlike too many others elsewhere. Our hosts were most helpful with regard to directions, local restaurants and in providing useful information on what is of interest in the area.

Thanks for the great review Charles. We are pleased to have hosted both you and Helen. We think everyone had a great time that weekend as we have had a number of reviews from guests who stayed during that time. Some time things are just special. Hope to see you again soon. Best regards.

Loved Ed and Irene! Very helpful with finding places to eat or things to do. Set up an afternoon wine tasting for us and it was the perfect way to see the wineries.....especially since it was the last weekend of the wine festival. Enjoyed a bottle of wine on the back deck of the inn which was very pleasant. Fun conversation over breakfasts. Highly recommend a stay here if you are in the area.

Ed and Irene added much to our Shaw Festival visit. We ate well at the restaurants they recommended, bought good wine at a recommended winery after a free tasting, and had pleasant chats over our delicious breakfasts. Our twin room was spotless and comfortable; we will definitely book in there on our next trip.

Our stay at Abacot Hall was everything we had hoped it would be. Irene and Ed are perfect hosts, and their home is warm, charming, clean, quiet and beautifully kept. It was a treat to sit out on the deck overlooking a gorgeous back yard with an early morning cup of coffee or an evening cup of tea. Ed and Irene provided us with a lot of guidance and information about the area (even made our play reservations for us) and updated us on the goings on around town. The breakfasts were delicious, and the conversation always lively. I would not hesitate to recommend Abacot Hall to others and hope to get back there myself. It is a great place just to have a nice quiet break. We will have fond memories of this trip.

Our first visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake was all the more memorable because of our delightful stay at Abacot Hall B&B, which couldn't have been more perfect. The charming home reflected the good taste and warm personalities of our host and hostess--Ed and Irene. Our room--the Victoria room--had a beautiful view of the park-like back yard, and attention to detail was evident everywhere. Our delectable breakfasts were made to order by chef Ed and who used local fruit, produce and jams. Our hosts, who are world travelers, provided us with all we needed to know to enjoy the beautiful Niagara area and gave us information other parts of the world that we expressed an interest in visiting. The scent of the roses at the entrance to the home remains....

We found Abacot Hall to be a great resting point during our 2 week summer driving adventure. Niagra on the Lake was a lovely town and Ed & Irene welcomed us with friendly smiles and fantastic hospitality. Staying at Abacot Hall created fond memories for us this summer, and it was due in part to Ed and Irene and the people they are.

Delightful and relaxing stay at Abacot Hall in August at the start of a three week trip to Ontario. Ed & Irene had many suggestions for local activities. We chose a theatre visit (saw an excellent play), sampled ice-wine in town (new to us and a must-do) and took the river route to Niagara Falls. Ed also put in extra effort to buy in something that was not on the breakfast menu to serve on our second morning - black pudding is lovely! Ed & Irene strike an excellent balance in being unobtrusive and yet very friendly. We were recommended to this delightful B&B by a friend and are more than happy to add our unreserved recommendation to others.

Room Tip: They are equally lovely
