“Wonderful getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Amarula House has it all. Be sure to book your next stay in NOTL at this charming, conveniently located B&B. Lyn provides not only information about the area and things to do... but will cook you a delicious breakfast that will keep you going all day. The rooms are clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend the Amarula House and look forward to a return visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to NOTL and our stay at Amarula House! Lyn made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived and she made sure we had homemade muffins and banana bread for our ride home. We stayed in the Buffalo room, which was impeccably clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and Lyn happily accommodated a vegetarian and carnivore. Amarula House is in an ideal location to walk to shops, the theatre, and restaurants. Lyn and Amarula House are a delight!

Perfect location for all amenities shops, theatre, restaurants, wineries and driving to see Niagara Falls. All rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable and all have a private bathroom. Fabulous breakfasts best we've had, better than any big hotel we have been to around the world. Lynette's knowledge of the area was good for letting us know where to visit and where to go to eat she really looked after us and for these reasons we would definitely go back to the Amarula Mike and Doreen Scotland September visit

Room Tip: Well worth a visit

Amarula house is a comfortable, welcoming base for exploring idyllic Niagara-on-the-lake. All three of the guest rooms have large comfortable beds, private baths. Lynette's gourmet breakfasts are so generous, you may not need lunch! We relied on her travel advice and recommendations. And the location simply can't be beat - just steps off the main street, with wonderful restaurants, shopping, and beautiful parks by the lake all a short stroll away (but far enough that it is QUIET!) Park the car, for free, and walk and relax. I've stayed in quite a few B&Bs, and my experiences have almost always been wonderful, but I will say that Lynette's great sense of humour and willingness to go the extra mile for her guests made our three day stay during our 1-year wedding anniversary a real joy. Now that we've gushed, I just hope we can get a room next time!

Room Tip: We stayed in both the water buffalo and leopard rooms and loved both. All the rooms are large, with...

Small B&B in a great location, convenient to downtown and all theatres, but quiet. The African-themed decor is attractive and interesting (the hostess is originally from South Africa). The Zebra room, where we stayed, was comfortable, with a nice bathroom and a separate outside entrance. Breakfasts were tasty with generous portions and lots of home-baked pastries and breads.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this bed and breakfast in Niagara on the Lake. The rooms/bathrooms are beautifully decorated, the breakfasts were delicious, and the hostess was helpful with sightseeing suggestions. I would definitely choose this B&B again!

We were introduced to Lyn and Dean by previous owners of this property. We've been coming here ever since they opened. Can't even remember how many times we've returned. This is truly our home away from home. Every time we come and think of buying something for ourselves to come to we decide against buying as there is no need as long as Lyn and Dean tolerate us (some of our visits are so long that it feels like this is our house...). We absolutely love coming and if not for our crazy schedule we would be there a lot more. The most accommodating hosts we've ever met, truly feel like a family (or better ;-). Breakfasts are unbelievably tasty and nutritious. The very best beds in town! Location can't be better and the pool to top it up! Absolutely #1 for us and we are not easy to please for variety of reasons. We are very thankful to have a place of escape and wish we could come more...
