“Ahoy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Julie and Bob do everything to make you comfortable. Rooms are attractive and very clean and the extra little touches are appreciated. There is a separate little TV room and you are welcome to use many parts of the house. Breakfast is relaxed and food is very good. They even send you away with a care package for the road. You couldn't go wrong by choosing this very lovely

My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed at The Brass Bell for 2 nights. It was perfect! The upstairs rooms are the perfect set up for couples traveling together with a common room in between. The bathrooms were a great size with all the little extras you may have forgot to pack (the hair towel was the highlight of my stay :) Breakfast was delish! Bob and Julie are wonderful hosts. We are already planning our next trip back.

Look no further if you want a clean and comfortable B&B in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Bob & Julie are delightful hosts. So very friendly and accommodating. They made our two-night stay very enjoyable. We wished we could have stayed longer. If you want a great breakfast, you will not be disappointed. Bob's is gourmet. We were very pleased with our selection of The Brass Bell.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Brass Bell for a 2-night stay whilst weekending in Niagara-on-the-Lake.Our room was very clean and tidy with it's own bathroom including shower and blow-dryer. Bob and Julie were incredible hosts and made us feel very welcome. They suggested places to visit, restaurant recommendations, wineries and local shops. Breakfast was delicious and loved Bob's preparation details. If you are looking for a quiet and clean B&B, centrally located to all attractions and welcomed by incredible hosts, the Brass Bell is the place to visit. We highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at the Brass Bell for one night during a visit to Niagara-on-the-lake with another couple. Our room was very clean and our bed was comfortable. Bob and Julie, the B&B owners, were friendly and hospitable. The Brass Bell is ideally located for biking to the many wineries in the area.

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent breakfast of fresh fruit and French toast.

There's no need to stay in an over-priced hotel in Niagara-on-the-lake. B&Bs like the Brass Bell are excellent value.

We celebrated our anniversary this past month at the Brass Bell. We have been to the Brass Bell on 3 separate occasions now and each time have had a fabulous experience. Bob and Julie are wonderful hosts - friendly, warm and very welcoming. They are helpful with providing information about things to do and places to eat and have an assortment of different discount coupons and wine tasting vouchers.

The accommodations are very comfortable and clean. This time we stayed in the Captain's Quarters, which, like the other rooms, is nicely decorated with a comfy bed, quilts and pillows. The bathrooms are well stocked with soaps and toiletries for your use. The home has free wireless internet and a couple of sitting areas that can be utilized.

Bob & Julie provided a wonderful breakfast with heart-shaped waffles (for our anniversary) and maple and blueberry syrup. Breakfast has always proven to be amazing -- with fresh baked pastries, fresh fruit and this time the very delicious waffles. You can tell that they take pride in providing a fresh, home-cooked meal for their guests.

Bob and Julie are wonderful hosts and their home is an excellent place to stay. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone.
