The Historic Pacific

Great location! Close to the downtown, restaurants, bars, theatre and the lake! Many thanks to the owners for making the room relaxing, clean & comfortable! Food was great, small fridge in dining room to chill your wine! Key to your room.

Beautiful clean gorgeous bedroom
Delicious fresh breakfast
Clean modern bathroom
Period piece furniture (beautiful!)

This B&B is in a great location, 1 block from downtown area which we walked to. The rooms are on the second floor, they are clean and nicely decorated with private bathrooms. We were provided with a key to our locked room, and felt welcome to come and go as we wished. There is a private dinning room with a small fridge, coffee maker that we had available to us. The hosts were welcoming, and respectful of privacy. The breakfast is as described - continental, it was a nice simple breakfast that was nutritiously made. We have stayed in Niagara on the Lake before, and did our research before we arrived, this B & B is priced appropriately. We would recommend and stay at Historic Pacific again. Thank you.

We've stayed at the Historic Pacific before but in the Armstrong Room, for a friend's wedding. This time we just wanted to get away for a couple of days, somewhere with a change of pace and where we could relax.
The Historic Pacifc fits those criteria. Right from the start there's a relaxed feel, we were able to come and go as we wanted and this time we stayed in the Niagara room, which is at the front of the house. It has a lovely bay window which overlooks the street (a pretty one, as are most in downtown Niagara-On-The-Lake.) I love the side table units and the lamps atop of these are a nice quirky touch although the chains to turn these on and off are a tad stiff, so make sure you don't have things you don't want to knock over nearby!

The location is brilliant, close to the lake and Queen street, but nice and quiet in the evenings. Breakfast was served between 8.30-9.30am (we stayed from Friday to Sunday). They do a continental style breakfast now, although with fresh homebaked pastries (by Jen) and other baked goods, as well as during our visit, egg fritatas and hard boiled eggs. The presentation is lovely and there was another couple staying whilst we were there and breakfast was a good time to chat and trade tips and suggestions. Last time we bought some of Jen's jam, although this time she'd had someone come in and buy a large batch, so was in the process of making more - I recommend buying some if your ever in the area!
There wasn't a shelf above the sink in the bathroom, which wasn't too tricky as we were only there a couple of nights, although it could have been helpful to place things on rather then on the sink. There is a little cupboard above the sink though, so you could place things in there. They provided us with lovely lavender soap, conditioner and shampoo, made my a local company as well as some fruity/chocolately nibbles. Also on a side note, there is a hanging shelving unit in the shower, with a couple of hooks underneath which you could hang flannels on if you wanted.
The bed was a little soft for me, although comfortable was a tad tricky on my back, that's a personal preference though. There are a coffee machine (which can also make tea) and a fridge with water in, so that at any point you can go make yourself/get a drink, although usually in the afternoon a pot of coffee appears on the dining table.
We were not bothered about not having a TV, as that's not really what being in Niagara On The Lake is about for us. Sometimes you can hear the horse and carriages trot by and there are a plethora of birds to hear in the surrounding area.
They have started a brewery, which you can go visit in Virgil, Silversmith. So Chris can mainly be found there at weekends. I'll review that in another post.
It's a lovely relaxed place to stay and feels like a lovely family run B&B.

Room Tip: Depends on whether you want the spa shower room or not, they now just do two rooms, so if you want t...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a 4 night stay at The Historic Pacific located 2 blocks from downtown Niagara on the Lake. This is an absolutely beautiful B&B located just one block from Lake Ontario. Jen, the Innkeeper, does a fabulous job making The Historic Pacific a warm and comfortable place to stay. From the fresh organic vegetables and herbs grown in her garden to the well appointed rooms with a touch Niagara on the Lake. Its hard to fathom why one would consider staying at a big hotel for the same or more money when you can get a beautiful room in a more personalized environment.

Room Tip: For additional space choose The Pacific Suite.

Stayed in the Niagara Room in summer 2012. Very poorly planned bathroom with no place to even put a bar of soap or facecloth in the shower, No place to lay out a toiletry bag. It was very hot with poor a/c and no t.v. Breakfast was good but not extraordinary. Overpriced. Find another place in this quaint town.

First some absolute positives: the location is perfect, on a quiet picturesque street one short block from the downtown shops and one block in the other direction to the lake. The Festival Theatre is a short walk, so there is no reason to move your car and pay for parking there. The rooms are large, the beds are reasonably comfortable, and the full gourmet breakfasts were a treat to the eyes and the palate. Jen could be a professional chef/baker and every morning there were fresh fruits, vegetables from her garden, two or three home baked items and her own homemade jams.  The jams were good enough to take home a few jars.   We asked Jen to make dinner recommendations and reservations, and she did a fine job with both.

There are also some surprises that you would want to know about when deciding about staying here: I don't call them negatives because they may or may not matter to you. There are no reading lamps, so having enough light to read in bed at night can be a problem if you are not using an e-reader.  We typically carry our own large bar of soap when staying several nights at a hotel, and it saved us this time since no bar soap was provided.  There were no washcloths either, and no daily maid service to make up beds, refresh used towels or replenish shampoo.

The Armstrong room is a dark brown and can be a bit hard on the eyes because of the contrasting glare from the windows.    It has a fancy steam shower, which I loved but my husband found intimidating because it was so high tech (he made a mistake and turned the handle the wrong way and the rush of the jets aimed at the door opening caused a bit of a mess).  It was actually funny, but made us regret not having a maid with extra towels to help us get the room back in shape after all the waterworks.  The bathroom is too small to include a sink, so the vanity is actually within the bedroom.  There is no independent lighting over the sink, so it can be disturbing to the person still in bed when the other needs light to wash up.

Our friends stayed in the Pacific Suite, the biggest and brightest room in the back on the house.  They had the same issues, plus they could not get an internet connection at all.  In our room, and in the upstairs public sitting area, the connection tended to fade in and out from time to time.  This was more noticeable while trying to use iPad/iPhone apps, and less so when doing less demanding tasks such as reading lengthy emails on a laptop.

I want to repeat that this isn't meant to be a negative review. I am highlighting what is a bit off so that you can judge for yourself whether these things matter to you.   I really did like this place, but for the price we spent,  I think that some of the items could be improved if the innkeepers choose to do so.
