“Yvonne give up now!!!!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We arrived at this B&B and there was no one there to let us in ( Yvonne said she expected us 30 minutes later)..... We were given the code to gain entry. When she arrived we were told to remove our shoes (never have we been asked to do this on all our travels round the world....). The rooms smelt musty and damp, if there had been an alternative that night we would have left there and then, but after a 9 hour drive we just put up with it, but cancelled the other two nights, already booked. The house was up for sale and most of the fixtures and fittings had been removed!!!!! The towels were very poor quality, and the whole place tired. The breakfast was poor and very limited. She was a very nice lady and knowledgable, but had obviously given up on B&B. For the other reviewer who gave this a high score, this was very misleading, in fact what planet are they on!!!!!

Room Tip: None -give this a miss

As we were booking at the last minute, we were unable to get into most places. This B&B, set in a modest residential neighbourhood of splits and ranch houses, was a disapointment. The breakfasts were not as good as we have had at other places and the room on the lower ground floor was just OK. While we did not mind the 'no shoes' policy, it seemed a bit excessive when the carpeting was industrial grey. The parking was extremely tight, with the result that another guest backed into our car. The owner was knowlegable and tried to be helpful regarding local activities.

The lovely proprietor shared her home with us and made us feel at home. We were not trapped in our bedroom, but we were brought into community with our fellow travelers. Our time spent here at Niagara on the Lake was certainly enriched by her charm, her stories, and our conversations with other guests. At first we were disappointed that we needed the car to reach the theaters, but we realized that the short ride insured that we had a tranquil resting place in the afternoon when we tired of the crowded commercial area. How sad that she will not be maintaining this establishment next year.

I spent 2 nights at this charming Bed and Breakfast with very comfortable well appointed rooms. Yvonne went out of her way to make me feel at home and was extremely helpful in every way. The breakfast was delicious and I have no hesitation in recommending Avoca Bed and Breakfast to anyone visiting beautiful Niagara on the Lake!

We stayed one night and we had a great time. Yvonne is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her home is lovely and cozy. We highly recommend Avoca Bed and Breakfast.
