We absolutely loved this charming B&B located in the beautiful town of Niagara on the Lake. Right across from the park and within walking distance to shops, spas and restaurants. We were there before Christmas and saw the beautiful holiday lights in the area. Our hosts Marzena and Yarek were fabulous and so kind and gracious with us. Breakfast was delicious!! Darlington House was very clean and the beds were so comfortable, there were so many lovely special touches everywhere, we had a perfect couple getaway, we wished we could have stayed longer!! We are looking forward to returning in the summer to enjoy cherry season in July! Thanks again!! Tanya & Joe

Tanya and Joe, Thank you for your detailed review! We really missed the atmosphere of having people in our house. I hope we will go back to normal life soon. Take care! Maybe one day we will visit you?

Property's Favourite Review
Pampered relaxing time away. It was a beautiful, Victorian styled home away from home. Very clean and the linen was crisp and beautiful. But most of all, the breakfast was exceptional on real lovely china.The breakfast was lovely, with variety every day and was so filling, we were full until dinner. The cottage is opposite to a beautiful historic park, was great for walks and bike rides, also located for a quick walk to downtown and the lake. We were skeptical initially, but Marzena and hubby worked around the clock to keep us safe sanitizing and especially the breakfast and service is to die for ☺️

Priya and Andrew, we miss you. Thank you for writing this exquisite review.! You stayed with us so long that we got used to your presence. I am happy that your vacation or longer get away from normal responsibilities, was comforted. This is our job to make you feel like that. Thank you, Priya for noticing the china. I believe that if we go on vacation for a short time even, it suppose to be a difference from our regular every day. ( unless somebody uses china every day for a meal- which is so lovely, they are made to use them). Thank you again.

A wonderful stay at Darlington House. A quiet location, a short walk to the Main Street of Niagara on the Lake. We stayed in the Yarm room and it was beautifully decorated with a comfortable bed and lovely linens. Wonderful hosts Marzena and Yarek were very thoughtful and surprised us with a lovely desert and sparkling wine for our anniversary. In the morning we were made a delicious hot breakfast to start our day. Thank you for your hospitality!

My fiance and I stayed here to celebrate our engagement. He couldn't have surprised me with a better weekend and stay in NOTL. Hosts were super welcoming and informative, the location is superb and convenient. We were sad to not have booked another night. Highly recommend and we will for sure be returning!
