Great hotel with a great staff. Cute small hotel. We stayed in the officers suite which was a perfect size. Refrigerator, nespresso machine, great shower with multiple heads, terrace and a comfy bed. Housekeepers were great. Will definitely stay here again and highly recommended.

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 ...More 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. Less
