Welcome to The Barracks Inn Boutique Hotel, an exquisite luxury inn located in the Ancaster Village. This remarkable venue blends classic historic character with elegance and well-thought design. The enchanting old stone barracks, a century stone building, began its life in the early 1800's, serving as a barracks for British soldiers. After an interesting history, the property has been restored and renovated to serve as The Barracks Inn, Ancaster's only boutique inn. Luxury is fragrant throughout the Historic Inn with well-appointed bedrooms and common areas to spoil you. The Barracks Inn features 18 luxuriously appointed rooms, subtly blending unique period décor with the finest of modern guest amenities. As Ancaster's only luxury boutique inn hotel, attention to detail is in everything we do. Each room has been individually designed with fabrics and materials chosen for their colours, contours and textures drawing from the historic elegance with modern day indulgence. Amenities and furnishings for each of the 18 bedrooms have been hand selected and when it comes to comfort, we've thought of it all. This unique boutique inn will cater to the leisure and business traveller. Featuring conference/meeting/group facilities, Spa Packages, Golf Packages, Couple/Romance package, and Holiday/Winter Packages.. The Barracks Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of the Ancaster Mill, a most popular wedding venue. Also within walking distance the Ancaster Village has great shopping with many boutique stores, The Spa at Ancaster, many dining options such as Cavallo Nero's, the Rousseau House restaurant and lounge, and many more. Just a short distance from international airports including John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport or Hamilton International, and only 70 km from Toronto Pearson Airport is wonderfully convenient yet retains a tranquil and undisturbed setting. Ancaster is in southern Ontario and is a scenic suburb of Hamilton. It is situated beside Ontario's Niagara Escarpment and the town is home to an abundance of natural beauty offering many enjoyable recreational activities, as well as offering an array of shopping and dining opportunities. Visitors will find much to do in this picturesque town, such as spending time at the Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum, visiting many of our conservation areas along the Bruce Trail and our many cascades and waterfalls such as the Tiffany Falls, Sherman Falls, and the Hermitage Falls just to name a few . Golf enthusiasts will enjoy playing a round or two at the Knollwood Golf Course, Ancaster also hosts a number of fun annual events throughout the year.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Barracks. We stayed in the executive queen room. Our room was very clean and looked freshly renovated. Well appointed and modern with vintage furniture. We loved the bathroom with its spacious walk in rain shower and heated floors. Staff were very nice and the included continental breakfast was fresh. There are some great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The only complaint I could make is the hallways echo due to the hard finishes and tile. People passing by your room can be very loud. Thankfully this wasn't a huge problem as the hotel is small and everyone on our floor were respectful.

Hotel's Favourite
We absolutely love this hotel. This was our second stay. It is impeccably clean and cared for, lovely without being stuffy, very warm and welcoming. We interacted with three front desk individuals in our very short overnight stay and they were all kind and helpful. Every detail that can be attended to is addressed and done so very well. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the shower is amazing! The rooms feel immaculately clean without feeling sterile, so well cared for. Also, there is perfect air quality in the room. Members of our family have strong allergies to dust, mold and chemical products and this is by far the healthiest hotel environment we have been in in a long time. The breakfast offering is beautifully presented for a buffet and has some healthy and homemade options. Thank you so much for doing what you do so well, other hotel owners should visit you to figure out how they could improve! Your care and quality is very rare these days and is really appreciated. We have relatives that just moved close by and we are looking forward to many more stays here.

Fantastic experience. Every time we stay we are extremely pleased with staff and the facility. This place is truly a jewel. The rooms are spacious and the stone accents make for a very unique experience. Would highly recommend The Barracks Inn

The room was absolutely beautiful. We had access to a private balcony that overlooked the Main Street. My husband and I enjoyed the king size bed with crisp white sheets and plenty of pillows. There was everything you could possibly need in the room. The soaker tub came in handy to warm up after a chilly walk at night. Overall, 10/10 stay.

The room was beautiful, luxurious even, including the very comfortable bed, the decor, the Acca Kappa toiletries and the excellent large walk-in shower. Free parking was appreciated. Our only disappointment was the noise generated by guests returning in the small hours to their rooms, the clatter from their heels & rolling luggage wakening us from sleep repeatedly up to 2 a.m.

This beautiful Inn is a new favourite!!!. The Barracks Inn has retained it's historic charm but provides a luxurious 5-star experience. Guest rooms are comfortable and spacious with excellent attention to detail and high-end finishes. Exceptional customer service with every staff member being warm, friendly & professional. Every inch of the Inn, from the rooms to the common areas, was spotless. Perks include a free breakfast (pastries, yogurt, hot oatmeal, juice, good coffee, etc.) & free parking. Excellent location in the heart of Ancaster just steps from nice shops & great restaurants. Highly recommend a stay at The Barracks Inn. We can't wait to return!!!

Great to dress for and relax in after a wedding. Breakfast was ample and did not feel nickle and dimed. Very comfy bed, could have used another pillow or two but was too tired to ask for more. Decor was classy!

The Barracks Inn is a lovely boutique hotel in downtown Ancaster. We stayed in the Royal Suite and couldn't recommend it more! It was clean, wonderfully appointed and huge. Staff at the hotel were very nice and we would love to stay again.
