We spent two nights here visiting the charming town of Niagara on the lake. The owner, Eva, made us very much at home. There are a number of very nice touches, apart from the wealth of 'Victoriana', including a self service room packed with a variety of teas and coffees, plus biscuits and treats, butlers cupboard to top up anything in the room, music in the downstairs lounges which we were invited to change to something of our choice, and rocking chairs on the outside verandah. The rooms were pleasant, but a bit short of natural and artificial light, and with all the furniture, space was a tad tight to open suitcases, but these were small points.
Breakfast was around two tables, so you get to meet other guests, which is very sociable. The downside was that it was served only from 0900 to allow the baker time to deliver his lovely fresh croissants. The breakfast choices were different, using local produce rather than traditional bacon and eggs, which I rather liked. The only down side was the timing if you wanted to get on the road before 9:30 or so.
