After a long car journey it was a relief to drive into the quaint Niagara on the Lake and find ourselves booked into such a charming B & B. Although we were running late and had limited means of contacting the owner, Pam was most welcoming on our late arrival. Lovely looking residential property on a corner location in easy...

We selected the Finlay House based on other's reviews and we weren't disappointed. The Bernard Shaw room was spacious and comfortable (window air conditioner). The breakfasts were generous, nourishing and tasty and Pam always sent us off with fresh baked muffins or banana bread for a mid-day snack. Early coffee was available upon request. The location was ideal - 5...

I stayed two nights with friends visiting from the UK. We shared the "Bernard Shaw" room at Finlay House, and were completely satisfied with the accommodation. There is a wrap-around verandah for the use of guests, and a kettle conveniently located just inside the screen door for making tea. Couldn't have been better. Will return.

We've been attending the Shaw Festival every August since 2004, but our first and favorite BnB was sold and returned to a private residence a in 2007. So we've been searching for the perfect replacement ever since, and my "average" rating for this property this year is based on comparison with 4 or 5 other BnBs in NOTL. Pam was...

Thank you for your interesting comments. Early morning coffee or tea is, of course, available before breakfast, you only need ask. Unfortunately, I am not a mind reader and so do not know if any guests are early risers unless they tell me, as previous guests have done. The room on the ground floor has a queen size bed not...

Finlay House is everything a B&B should be and more, from the location through the spacious, spotlessly clean rooms, to the wonderful hostess, and her delicious breakfasts. We've stayed at other Niagara-on-the-Lake B&B's but once we found Finlay House that was it. We park our car, walk to all the theaters and restaurants, and completely enjoy ourselves. The previous owner...

Pam is a wonderful host and the setting is charming, clean and extremely well located. We would return again and again. Privacy is terrific and the amenities are all you could want. Breakfast was lovely and the area is quiet and very appealing. Any visitor to Niagara on the lake would do well to book this gem.

Finlay House was quaint, quiet and relaxed. Pam, our hostess prepared amazing breakfasts and provided helpful hints on the area. Niagara on the Lake is a hidden gem that has so much to offer. We will definitely be back.

We have been to Niagara on the Lake many times and always stayed in Hotels in Niagara, never again this B& B has made up our minds for us.

As a staff getaway we reserved all three rooms at Finlay House the weekend of June 6/7. What a great experience. The way the B&B is set up made it seem like we had rented our own house for the weekend. The owner has a separate area of the house where she lives, so the common areas was ours to...

Finlay House is a charming B&B celebrating theatre and wine! Come and visit for a while. We are a short 2-3 minute stroll to Queen Street the heart of Niagara on the Lake, the prettiest town in Canada, 0.4Km to Town centre. The Shaw Festival Theatre is also only a couple of blocks away. Our rooms are bright and comfortable and come with all the "mod cons" - flat screen plasma TV's with satellite and HD channels, free WiFi internet, mini fridge, air conditioners (in summer), alarm clocks and hair dryers. We serve a delicious 2-3 course home cooked breakfast for you to enjoy. Free parking. We look forward to welcoming you soon! ... more   less
