South Landing Inn

Reviewed August 1, 2013

We chose this place as a lower cost alternative to the hotels in Niagara on the Lake. We were very pleassntly surprised to find a very nice, clean, well- appointed establishment. It can is convenient to the Shaw festival, the various attractions along the shore, and the falls themselves. The made to order breakfast for $5.00 is an added bonus. We will be back.

Great location, clean, friendly service and close to everything. Good value for your money.We stayed there 3 nights. Good breakfast available at a good price. We would consider staying there again since it was easy to get everywhere from this location.

Room Tip: There are end rooms with tables to sit out if you like to enjoy the sunshine.

We stayed two nights here after Labor Day in 2010 and again in 2011 and in 2012. In 2011 and 2012 we stayed in the Annex. Our annex second floor room was quieter than the ground floor which can experience footfall noise from above. Two of our Fall visits coincided with a gathering of cyclists who were very early risers, and we heard their conversations outside our room. The July visit was very quiet and peaceful. The inn is a 15-20 minute drive from the center of NOTL, but the cost saving is worth it to us. The owners are most gracious and responsive.

Room Tip: As far as we could tell, all the rooms are good to excellent.

We stayed at South Landing Inn for two nights and it was exactly what we expected.
The owners and their adult son run the place and do an excellent job of it. The breakfast is wonderful and there is good reason they are "famous" for their french toast and home-made jams!
The room was like staying at your grandparents' house, decorated from years ago but comfortable and clean and ideal for a bed and breakfast. Location is quiet and close to everything. Walking trails, bike trails, vineyards, Niagara-on-the-Lake, all within close distance. We even ventured across the border for lunch in New York one day.

We absolutely loved staying here and would stay again in a minute. Can't say enough wonderful things. Price is very reasonable, as well.

Room Tip: We stayed in the old house on the second floor and had access to a lovely balcony. Very happy with...

Charming, friendly, helpful folks run this gracious heritage hotel at the foot of Queenston Heights. We came to watch the 200th anniversary re-enactment of one of the key battles of the War of 1812 and staying in this location meant we could manage the crowds and walk everywhere. Our room in the original building was cosy and well appointed with a gorgeous view of the Niagara River. A delicious modestly priced breakfast was offered every morning in a dining room that felt like home. We loved staying here and will definitely come back. The kind of place you want to bring your elderly parents for a treat.

Room Tip: Ask for one in the original building with a view of the river

When our U.S. cellphone lost its signal when we crossed over the border, we started wondering if we could find an affordable place to stay. We drove closer to the Lewiston crossing and we were able to locate South Landing Inn. Our room in the Annex is really large and comfortable along with being impeccably clean. The front desk showed us several rooms and explained the options. It is a great find and is only about 10 minutes from the Shaw Festival and downtown Niagara on the Lake for less than half the price of many close in hotels.

Room Tip: The rooms with the balconies are definitely the most desirable.

I can't understand the hostility of some the comments on this site. The place is a delight, enjoying an idyllic setting in the historic town of Queenston, and within easy walking distance of landmark sites related to the War of 1812, among them the Laura Secord Homestead and the towering Brock Monument.
I stay in the annex across the street from the historic inn itself, and the accommodation is wonderful — nicely furnished rooms, very comfortable beds, adequate lighting, wireless internet access, an excellent choice of television channels, and an efficient heating and air conditioning the system. The bathrooms too are excellently equipped, and the housekeeping is friendly ans conscientious.
The hotel, operated by an elderly German couple who have been there for three decades, has its eccentricities. No land-line telephones in the rooms, no immediate on-line booking, a quaint room in the main building which functions as combination reception area, kitchen and breakfast room. But to me, all this is again part of its charming distinctiveness. Room prices are moderate by the standards of the Niagara area, and breakfast at $5 is a real bargain: a choice of scrambled eggs or French Toast, plus juice and as many cups of good coffee as you want.
