The four of us are on a road trip from Winnipeg to Montreal (mom, dad and 2 kids) and stayed here at the Colonel Butler in Niagara-on-the-Lake for 3 nights. Cost was about $220 per night, which is very good for anything halfway decent in the Niagara-on-The-Lake. It’s close to the main historical and shopping districts (not walking distance but close - 4 or 5 minute drive) and its also close to many local wineries. The guy at the desk (Kyle) was a local guy and he had tons of excellent advice for us, which was really helpful. For example he suggested that if we wanted to see both Niagra Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake, we should get to Niagra Falls early in the morning, do what we want until around lunch time, then head back to town for lunch and afternoon tours. Boy was he right. The food is twice the quality for half the price in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The room was super clean, and although the hotel is old, it is well maintained. The continental breakfast is fair enough (waffles, cereal and dry goods) but they also have a partnership with the ‘Butler Grill and Bar’ next door, who provides a very good restaurant breakfast to hotel guests for $7.50 per person, which includes beverages and taxes. The rooms are small, but not too small - we fit four quite comfortably. There are nicer places in this town, but not for this price you pay at Colonel Butler. And unless you love the tourist trap feel and hustle/bustle of Niagara Falls, you should really consider staying in Niagara-on-the-Lake, it’s a beautiful town and so very welcoming! less

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review! It was a pleasure having you and your family with us last week and I'm thrilled to read that the suggestions worked out well and that you had an awesome stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The upgrade to a hot breakfast at Butler's Grill is a new addition and has been very well received by our guests so I thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed that too. Winnipeg might not be around the corner but I sincerely hope we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Colonel Butler Inn so that you can enjoy more of what the town has to offer. Thank you again & all the best.
