#53 of 159 B&Bs / Inns in Niagara-on-the-Lake
Superb hospitality awaits you in our comfortable, spacious home in Old Town. We are close to many of the area’s amenities -- restaurants, theatres, shopping, golf, wineries and Niagara Falls’ attractions. Built in the latter part of the last century, The Brass Bell Bed & Breakfast is named after the ship's bell of sea-going vessels, Thus the decor is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles with a light nautical touch (Bob is a retired Navy Commander). Our beautifully appointed rooms all have ensuite bathrooms, two have four-poster queen-sized beds and one has a king-sized sleigh bed.

We spent a night in Brass Bell and it was a great experience. They were very friendly on the check-in, gave us discount coupons for the wineries nearby. For the room. It was very comfortable, bright and spacious. The breakfast was amazing. Quiches, croissants, homemade jelly, etc. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast.

We spent one night at Brass Bell for a much needed girls weekend, and loved our stay! We stayed in Sarah’s Room which was a good size for our party of two. Bob and Julie were warm and friendly and very welcoming. We enjoyed a fabulous feast of a breakfast the next morning, and already talking about returning again soon. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!

This was a perfect stay for 2 couples traveling together! The location was close to everything we wanted to see, and the breakfasts were over the top! Thanks so much to the innkeepers for recommendations for dining and sightseeing, as well as good conversation and excellent service!

We recently spent 2 nights at the Brass Bell. Julie and Bob are great, attentive hosts and made us feel welcome, immediately. After a busier than expected travel day from Windsor, their suggestion for dinner at the near by "Sand Trap" was spot on. Each morning we woke, well rested and enjoyed terrific breakfasts and conversation with the other guests and our hosts. We'll be recommending The Brass Bell to our friends and family.

We were welcomed by the hosts, Bob and Julie, to their home as if we were close friends. Our choice of the ground floor room, indicated by our hope to avoid another daunting staircase, was a winner: the room was beautifully-decorated and spacious, with a lovely, large en-suite bath. The Brass Bell name is a tip that Bob is a proud, retired naval person and much of the home's decor reflects that (as does his banter). Although a touch too far for a leisurely walk to the centre of town, it certainly is but a short drive to there and parking in town is not a huge problem. The location on the Lakeshore Road enables easy access to many wineries west of the town. Breakfasts, jointly prepared by the hosts, were indeed excellent (and accompanied by Bob with witty dissertations on the food -- and other subjects of your choice).
