We spent 2 nights here during a wider holiday to Canada with a view to some civilised 'down time' from the bigger cities. Niagara on the Lake did not disappoint and the experience was enhanced by the completely professional and convivial pairing of Faith & David. The house is beautiful and organised to ensure that guests have time and space to relax with a free supply of coffee and home baking (one of the few B&Bs I've ever been in where you actually feel able to stray from your room). The house is spotlessly clean and packed with accurate local information which Faith has clearly sourced carefully and there is plenty of opportunity to lightly grill the hosts for even more local knowledge. David helped us plan an on-bicycle wine tour which, thanks to the networking of this twosome, cost us only the price of bike hire (saved us at least $80). We ably managed to sample 30 and still bring david back unused vouchers. The final positive is saved for breakfast ... POSITIVELY SUPERB. I want the Aquabella to be an hours drive from my house in order that I can go every second weekend (every week would be decadent); sadly it's 8 hours on a plane. The bar for my B&B reviews is now well and try set. I expect to be limbo-ing under it for quite some time to come.
