This B&B is very charming and located close to everything Niagara Falls in the U.S. You can literally park there and never get your car out until you leave. We walked everywhere by the falls from the hotel. Everything was clean and decorated beautifully! The surprise little bottle of wine, cheese sampling, and crackers made for a perfect small dinner after eating so much for lunch at a local Indian buffet! The cheese by the way was a very tasty gourmet sampling and just what I always hope to get (and very seldom do) with this sort of thing.
There were a few odd moments however. You couldn't go to your room until it had been "inspected" by the owner so we had to wait in the lobby. The lobby was so nice and the people so helpful that it didn't bother us that much, but it was a little unusual. Also we tried to put our room on a different credit card than the one we'd originally used to book the room because we wanted to get the AARP discount. There seemed to be a problem with this which never really got explained but it all worked out just using the same card.
The only complaint I have is the breakfast we got the next day. You are allowed to order anything on the menu free as a perk for staying at the B&B. The open air restaurant is just wonderful and very pretty with lots of flowers and a nice view. This sounds great. However, in practice it didn't work out. I asked for a crab omelet and specially asked about the crab - was it real crab and not that fake fish stuff? They assured me it was real; but when I got the omelet it was not only NOT real crab but it was overcooked and tough. My husband got a "normal" breakfast, and it wasn't very good either. We thought about complaining and getting a different breakfast; but if the normal one wasn't great, it didn't seem to make sense. We were headed across the border and wanted to get a quick start, so decided to eat just a little of what was presented. I couldn't eat the omelet so my husband traded with me and ended up eating mostly toast - he's such a sweetheart!
