We stayed for two nights at the end of a two week stay in Ontario - we could really have stayed for 3 or 4 nights. Hotel is in a great location two blocks from the main street and right across the road from a 9 hole golf course that looked like it wouldst be a fun place to play.
We had a top floor room in the main building with a nice balcony - unfortunately the weather wasn't really good enough for us to enjoy this (or the pool and hot tub in the gardens). The room was nicely decorated and had a decent sized bathroom.
We only ate breakfast in the hotel. The complimentary continental breakfast was much larger than we expected - an old fashioned three layer cake stand had cold ham and peppered mackerel on the bottom layer, fruit (pineapple, melon, watermelon, strawberries) on the second layer and pastries on the top. Fruit juice, yoghurt, toast, bagels, tea or coffee was provided as well.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful - the front desk gave good recommendations about the best wineries to visit and gave us a selection of vouchers for free tours and tastings.
Perhaps the only complaint would be that the 25 minute head massage my wife booked at the spa started late (despite her being early for it) and finished early so it was really only a 15 minute session in the end and not good value for money.
As I write this, the Oban Inn is ranked 11/15 in Niagara on the Lake. If it genuinely deserves to be this far down the pecking order then the 10 hotels above it must be astoundingly good - we'd have no hesitation staying here again.
