“Beyond compare!”
Reviewed March 6, 2011

We secured this B&B via their website with no preconceived knowledge of what to expect. What we received was undoubtly the most warm and wonderful hospitality imaginable. Howard & Jolanta are the epitome of what innkeepers should aspire to be. We immediately felt at home. They gave us detailed advise to the local wineries, shops and restaurants often making reservations for us and/or providing us with maps & directions. The rooms were graciously appointed. The location was quiet with a quick 3-block walk to the center of town. Breakfast was superb. We will definately visit Niagara-on-the-Lake at least two more times this year and will stay at no other facility. We have not only found an extraordinary place to stay, we found very special new friends.

My fiance and I just spent the last weekend of January at Lyons House. We had such a great experience from start to finish. We were completely taken care of by our hosts. Howard helped us with our reservations for dinner on both nights, plus offered us free tasting vouchers for 6 wineries in the area. He gave us a great suggestion to go to Ravine Estate Winery for lunch which was fantastic! The room was absolutely beautiful, with a plasma TV, beautiful bed, and floor to ceiling windows. Breakfast each morning was amazing, and the other couples staying at the place were great! I'm so excited to go back in the summer! Would 110% recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Niagara on the Lake.

My friends and I visited Niagara-on-the-Lake in November for Taste the Season. We had an absolutely perfect experience at the Lyons House Bed & Breakfast! I felt extremely comfortable and at home from the very beginning--we were treated like family. Howard really went out of his way to take care of every detail for us! The service and hospitality was far superior to any hotel at which I have stayed.

We just spent the weekend at the Historic Lyons House and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Jolanta and Howard were wonderful hosts, they have a beautiful home and made us feel welcome in it. Beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast. We will definitely visit them again.

It was as though we had personal concierges. Howard and Yolanda really aim to please. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The house is gorgeous. Yard is perfect for relaxing with friends and wine. Walking distance to the downtown "action" of Niagara on the Lake. They even made last minute reservations for us by using their "pull" at the restaurant. We stay at lots of inns in US and Canada. Lyons House is the best.

This is the first B&B I have stayed at it and it sets the bar higher than high. Howard was so welcoming from the beginning and this B&B immediately becomes your home away from home in NOTL. Lyons House far surpasses the comfort and atmosphere of any hotel. An excellent location - short walk to Queen St and centralized from all the wineries. Howard went out of his way when he discovered we didn't have a driver to winery hop to meet up with us and drive us! AMAZING! The rooms were gorgeous and the minifridge with bottled water was much needed and appreciated. And I haven't even mentioned the eggs benedict breakfast that was quite probably the most delicious breakfast I've ever had. I really can't say enough good things about this B&B.

We stayed at the Lyons house for 3 nights in early september.
We were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday at NOL. I found this establishment on this trip advisor site . The hosts were a great and were consider friends when we left. Howie is an excellent chef and presented his breakfasts like you were staying at the 4 seasons.
Every morning we had a new creation that was better than the last. Our room was immaculate and spacious. I had ordered the romance pkg and the hosts prepared and did everything I requested .
We will definately return and soon ..
