My wife and I stayed at Hoppy's Bed & Breakfast for one night in August, 2012.
We were warmly greeted upon arrival by both Terence and Amitha (and Odie!). We stayed in the Cinnamon Bark room which provides a King size bed and an ensuite bathroom.
We found the room to be clean, quiet, and calming. Of particular note are the "extras" all around the room. You can tell the owners have listened to input from guests as you can find items like earplugs, sanitized flip-flops, pool towels, designer shampoos etc. Pretty much anything that you might need during your stay is located somewhere in the room, and even a large number of "wow, who would have thought of that?" items such as the Shimmering Body Powder my wife discovered in the bathroom.
Our only complaint is that the bed mattress is approaching worn-out status. It was unevenly supportive depending on exactly where you slept. The pillows were rock-hard as well; one of us found this pleasant, and the other did not. In any case, this is just a minor issue and did not seriously detract from our enjoyment of our stay or even our sleep quality.
We were invited to swim in the large in-ground pool in the backyard and it was a pleasant experience. The water was perhaps a bit too warm for aggressive swimming, but nearly perfect for a nice, calm float in the water or relaxing strokes around the pool.
Breakfast was very tasty, and created with our particular needs in mind. We were very happy that Terence and Amitha spent time talking with us over breakfast. It was very nice and genuine and makes you feel welcome.
The location of Hoppy's is Perfect (with a capital "P") for those who wish to bicycle the trails in Niagara-on-the-lake. You are no more than a 1 minute pedal from the park where you can pick up the bike trails in any direction.
We're pleased to recommend Hoppy's as a fine place to stay when visiting the Niagara area, and we would be hard-pressed to find better value for the money in the town.
We're looking forward to staying at Hoppy's again!
Stay in the Cinnamon Bark Room if you can! And bring your bathing suit; the pool is a worthwhile e...

Sorry to hear about the sleep discomfort you experienced. Our Dream maker mattresses are just 5 years old, But we can see why you may have encountered discomfort. These are twin beds put together to make up the King, and if one tends to sleep towards the centre of the two beds, one might encounter some discomfort where the mattresses meet . We thank you for your comments, and will make it a point to inform our guests about this.
We hope you have a safe Autumn.
