Friends often ask why we choose B & Bs over hotels. They wouldn't ask that question if they spent a night at Hoppy's B & B in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We were there last weekend for a combination birthday/anniversary trip. I admit I was a bit skeptical whether this B & B could live up to its reputation but I can say without reservation (a little hotel humour!) the 5-star reviews are well deserved.
Amitha and Terence (Hoppy) are the very definition of gracious hosts and good company. And Starling, (Mum Hoppy!) holds a special place in my heart--she knows why!
Every detail is meticulously attended to--bathrobes, slippers, toiletries galore, the most glorious cushiony beds...and the food...simply superb. I was a bit nervous whether our friends would like the asian fusion breakfast but they LOVED it! If wine country hadn't been calling we would have happily sat nibbling all day.
We can't wait to return. Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of our favourite destinations and now it's even better.
