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.

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.

Wow! Top notch all the way! Every aspect of the hotel was impressive - noticeably the beautifully-presented gourmet breakfast (included in the price) - the cleanliness, “newness”, spaciousness and QUALITY of the furnishings in the entrance, hallways, common rooms, bathrooms, and bedroom - and the helpfulness and friendliness of the employees (one who offered to prepare a fire for us in the lobby fireplace and to serve us scotch/wine, and another who explained the history of the building). My husband and I booked our room as a fairly local escape (away from our teenage children), and really felt pampered by the quality of the atmosphere and service! Classy all the way! Additionally, we were able to walk to the English Pub (Coach and Lantern). We look forward to returning with friends in the future to try the Scotch/wine on the outdoor patio or in the 2nd floor lounge.

Very recommended! The room was very roomy, clean, and nicely decorated. The bathroom was amazing, with heated floors and a raindrop shower. The staff was very friendly. We arrived early from Buffalo (to avoid the "snow bomb"). Our room wasn't ready yet, but they invited us to wait in the upstairs balcony until it was. They were able to quickly clean the room and let us in. The breakfast buffet provided many options and kept us powered through the snowy days. It is within walking distance of a small shopping center with a Tim Horton's, a highly recommended (by us) Indian restaurant, and a very good cheese shop (that was very friendly to us as we wandered in from the blowing snow). If we are ever traveling this way again, we'd definitely stay here.

My wife and I booked a room at the Barracks for a wedding we were attending at the nearby Ancaster Mill. The location was perfect and within walking distance. The room was beautiful, unique and well equipped for our too short stay. Breakfast in the morning was a bit sparse as we have some dietary restrictions. My wife opting for the gluten free toast with jam, and I for fresh fruit. We also mentioned in our online booking that we were dairy and gluten free. I inquired about dairy free options for coffee and they were able to get some oat milk. Aside from the breakfast, we enjoyed the room and how it felt nothing like a typical hotel room. Would go back again!

Incredible hotel.... 10/10. Extremely cozy and elegant. A warm fire welcomes you in the lobby. The rooms are CLEAN and extremely comfortable. We could have stayed all week! Breakfast was wonderful.... bagels, oatmeal, fruit, cold cuts, yogurt, chia pudding etc. Chris (the general manager) is a true professional. If you have any concerns you should email him directly... he will respond promptly. I will be staying at this hotel again and I would recommend it to anyone with high expectations. I am very picky and have absolutely NO complaints about this beautiful place.

The Barracks Inn is a lovely boutique inn that you do NOT want to miss! It is a quaint, cozy and beautiful property. Be careful you may not want to leave. The lobby area has a beautiful large fireplace that you can sit and have morning coffee or and evening wine. There is a beautiful Christmas tree up right now that makes it that much more enchanting. There is not a restaurant but there are enough around that you can walk to or go into downtown Hamilton (highly recommend Brothers Grimm Bistro) for an array of different food choices. The Barracks Inn does offer a lovely breakfast with different scones, oatmeal, fresh fruit, coffee and more. The rooms are beautiful and quite large. We did not hear a peep from the other guests so I think the rooms are pretty soundproof. We actually slept great. The bed is very comfortable with yummy linens. The bathroom is very large with a large walk in shower. Nesspresso machine and pods in the room as well. On the second floor there is a nice sitting room and in the warmer months a balcony to sit out on. The staff are very sweet and friendly. We absolutely loved our stay and will stay again. Our experience was perfect! Thank you to everyone at The Barracks Inn for a wonderful experience!

We had a wonderful two nights at the Barracks Inn. The room was excellent! It offered a nice lounge on the second floor with an outdoor patio area looking over Wilson Street. Breakfast was available on the first floor. Great variety and delicious coffee. We were able to walk to a coffee shop and to the Pub for dinner. The Inn has been totally renovated with attention to the historical details. Truly lovely!! We are looking forward to returning another year!

Our weekend at the Barracks Inn was wonderful. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. The room was beautiful and meticulously maintained as was the Inn itself. Breakfast was limited but fresh and beautifully presented for a continental breakfast. We will be back.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, attending a wedding at Ancaster Mill, which is a few minute walk from the hotel. Unless you are wearing very high heels, then it's probably a 6-min walk. The hotel is located on the main street, with various restaurants and shops, very convenient location. Beautiful location but traffic is on a heavy side. The room was clean and spacious, light breakfast was included (from 7 to 10 AM). It was a very pleasant and problem-free stay. The parking is behind the hotel, and is free. Highly recommended.
