I stayed here for a girls' weekend and enjoyed every moment. Debbie and Mark are very kind, and go out of their way to accommodate. I was a last minute guest and was told I might have a sofa bed, and they went to the extent to rearrange the rooms so I could have a real bed. On Saturday I had to leave at 5:30 am to do a 32 km walk and Debbie was kind to get up extra early to provide breakfast. The historic Inn is well appointed, very comfortable and spotless. Thank you for a lovely weekend!

A friend organized a girls' weekend away at this B&B and it couldn't have been better. Deb and Mark, our hosts, were lovely, the inn gorgeous, my loft room as cozy and elegant as can be, breakfasts delicious and location - just a block from the strip which made it "quiet" without taking us away from the fun - stellar. I would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Deb and Mark for the wonderful weekend!

Stayed for a weekend at the BranCliff Inn and couldn't be more satisfied. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortably furnished with big screen TVs and easy to use coffee makers. The Inn is quiet and the rooms are spacious loft-style. Debbie stocks a refridgerator in your room with an array of cold drinks. Breakfast was delicious, plentiful with plenty of options. Best of all the Inn is located conveniently with onsite parking. I would choose to stay here again.

Excellent!
The place was beautiful and the Debbie and Mark are wonderful hosts - so friendly and kind and genuinely great people.
The garden out front and in the back yard was beautiful!
I forgot a jacked and Debbie even lent me one of her own for the weekend!
Would recommend it to anyone - for a girls weekend, couples trip etc.. could be a very romantic location as well.

I've stayed in many Niagara on the Lake B&Bs over the last 15 years but the BranCliff Inn, acquired only a year ago by new owners, is the best by far and I can't recommend it highly enough. The rooms are gorgeous - particularly those with loft bedrooms. Debbie and Mark can't do enough to make sure you have a great stay. And the location - a block from Queen Street - is perfect. For REAL fun, book the entire inn for a girls' weekend, wedding guests etc. It's perfect and Debbie will set you up with caterers etc. Like inviting your guests to a weekend at your private mansion.

BranCliff Inn is a wonderful place to stay and Debbie and Mark are great hosts. The rooms are very clean, spacious, well furnished and have a fridge and coffee maker. The loft beds are a plus and allow for a very large living room in each suite. An absolutely excellent hot and cold breakfast is served each morning. The grounds are beautiful and include a gazebo for comfortable sitting. We have been staying here for many years (including with previous owners) and will be back again next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

This historic school house was totally gutted over a two year period by the former owners, who sold it to Debbie and Mark last year. We have been coming to the Shaw Festival since 1980 and have stayed at a lot of B & Bs and Hotels and this one is by far the best of them all. We were one of the first guests when it was opened in May 2005, by Pat & Greg Knight. They named it "Allison House", after their daughter. We have been back twice every year since for four nights in June and four nights in September. We have already booked our room for June and September next year. It is very close to the Festival and Court House Theatres and still an easy walk to the Royal George. We thought it had everything until Debbie and Mark took over and added.WiFi and flat screen HD cable TV in every room. We thought Pat's breakfasts were fabulous, but have discovered that Debbie's are even better. In short, we can't imagine any
B & B having more to offer and will be back for our 18th stay this September.
We cannot find a single thing to be critical about BranCliff Inn or our hosts and cannot take exception to any of the comments made by other reviewers. Be kind to yourself and give yourself a treat by booking a room here soon.
