This B&B is ideally situated for visiting Niagara Falls and its many attractions. It's a 15 min walk one way to the falls and the other way to the rapids walk. It's also on the WeGo local hopper bus route. The house is authentic and stylishly decorated and Helena the Innkeeper clearly has an efficient operation going. She knows what... More

I thought the location was nice, the food was good just don't ask to have the coffee left at the table, the host is not real accommodating. My room was small the bed hard and the bathroom was down the hall, it was notated it is private but it was "down the hall". I am in my 50's and my... More

Helena was the perfect host during our three nights stay in Niagara. She had some great stories to tell and made us feel very welcome in her charming house. The Lions Head is ideally situated on River Road and is only a 15 minute stroll to the falls. The rooms were as shown on her website and her breakfasts were... More

This B&B is just amazing! The bedrooms are exactly as we see in the pictures,Free parking, close to the Wego bus line but the best is the breakfast! You feel you are in a 5 star restaurant with all the gourmet food that the hoster/cook can prepare!

WOW! Is all I can say to begin this review! What an incredible experience! Helena is an amazing hostess. As soon as we arrived, she made us feel right at home. We stayed for 3 nights.

This property is in walking distance of the falls and is easily accessed from the US. A beautiful old building with great character. The room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The hostesses culinary skills were evident at breakfast which was delicious. Breakfast around a large table with other guests gave the opportunity for conversation and travel tips.

This is our second year staying at Lion's Head and it was just as great as the first year. Helena is a fabulous, outgoing hostess. She has lots of info on places to see, places to eat and things to do in Niagara besides visiting the falls. Her rooms are lovely and the house is full of beautiful, interesting touches.... More

If there were 6 stars I would have given that! Helena, the owner and innkeeper is friendly, accommodating, warm and has an effervescence to her that you will not find at a chain name hotel. She is very helpful in navigating you around town and has excellent recommendations for you to try. On top of her overwhelming knowledge of the... More
