I recently stayed at the BranCliff with a bride-to-be and 5 other bridesmaids as part of a wedding weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We had almost the whole Inn to ourselves which meant we had an enormous amount of privacy. Debbie was incredibly accommodating and the room set-up was perfect for each bridesmaid to have her own little oasis. Each room was so unique and charming we ended up taking wedding pictures in many of the rooms while we did hair and makeup the morning of the wedding! Being able to wander from room to room and have a delicious gourmet breakfast in our plush bathrooms made the weekend stay feel like we were in a home away from home.
This is truly a wonderful little retreat for any kind of visitor to NOTL, but I would definitely recommend it to future wedding parties looking for a bit more of a unique and personalized experience!

Debbie made our weekend so special with her unique touches. Felt so warm and welcoming like if she was family. Our rooms were so clean and the breakfast was worth ever penny. Wouldn't look to stay anywhere else. Went on a horse and buggy ride, walks to all the shops. Location was perfect. Looking forward to going back this summer.

My sisters and I had our 1st sister reunion at the BranCliff. The suite was beautiful. Everything was so clean and looked like new. The beds and bedding were a sleepers dream. The Inn was perfect for walking in town everyday. I wished we could have stayed longer.

Each morning we had fantastic breakfasts. The pancakes(raspberry then blueberry) were the best I ever had. Everything was wonderful and perfect.

Debbie was amazing. Besides the wonderful breakfasts, she also gave us great suggestions on what to do and had some great discounts for us.

Our experience in NOTL was nothing short of amazing and that was largely due to the accommodations at BranCliff.

From the moment host, Debbie, welcomed us into the building (circa 1859), we were hooked. Simple and elegant and packed with old charm. The front of the building is covered with ivy and is a beautiful backdrop for photos. We stayed in the suite on the main floor and were very pleased with our selection. Large king (or two double) bed, stained glass windows and sky high ceilings.

Breakfast in the morning was a buffet spread, fit for royalty! An array of local fruits, yogurt/cereal, meats & cheeses, as well as, eggs/quiche, bacon/sausage, hashbrowns, homemade raspberry pancakes and many different breads/bagels. It was delicious and Debbie's attention to detail was so wonderful. She chatted with each of the guests about where they were from and what their plans were in town, trying to make suggestions if she could.

Our recommends included a trip to nearby St. David's, where we did a tasting & had dinner at Ravine Vineyard - it did NOT disappoint. A day later and we're still raving about our meals.

Can't wait to go back to Brancliff - we highly recommend a visit there! :)

My BFF and I lucked out when we managed to snag the last room available for our one night stay in NOTL. The Rose Suite was beautiful, spacious and quiet. There is a lovely sitting area, bar fridge, coffee for the AM and a very large and well stocked bathroom. Deb met us at the door when we arrived and was quick, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the house and ideas for dinner and the next day. Breakfast in the well appointed dining room was varied and delicious. It was very nice to be able to choose from the large selection of breakfast foods available. I will definitely come back to BranCliff in the future.

We stayed here as part of a bridal party for a wedding, and could not have been happier with our choice. The inn is beautiful, and we were very impressed with our rooms- just the right balance of character and old world charm with new, modern and CLEAN amenities. The rooms were very quiet, beds very comfortable, they provided robes (which always make me very happy) and lots of toiletries; rooms were kept very cool, plenty of outlets. It worked perfectly for our bridal party- we had 5/6 rooms in the inn and therefore were able to leave our doors open, use one room to get our hair and makeup done in, steam the dresses in another, have one set up for photos, etc. Not only was it functional, it was also beautiful! The outside is stunning, the beds made a great backdrop for dresses / boudoir shots, and the gazebo out back is perfect for a first look. Breakfast was amazing- huge selection of healthy, fresh and delicious food. Debbie was incredibly helpful, provided great advice, and was willing to go out of her way for anything that was asked of her (e.g. running out to the store to pick up a bottle of wine that someone wanted to deliver to us, providing our florist with mugs of water for our bouquets, suggesting a place to order pizza from, etc.). My only complaints / suggestions would be: the doors tend to slam (is there something that could be done to help them close more smoothly?), there was no conditioner provided (the shampoo was insufficient for long hair that tends to tangle), and the rooms get pretty bright pretty early in the morning (not a place to sleep in late)- all in all, relatively insignificant things compared to our overall fantastic experience here. Definitely worth the price you pay, and perfect for bridal parties!!!
