Trip Advisor Review for:
Colonel Butler Inn, Niagara-on-the-Lake
April 17-19, 2017
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The check in was effortless and friendly. Even greeted with cookies. This small Best Western ( two stories) is clean, pretty and quiet. The room I had was two double beds. The room was well appointed, nicely decorated and furnished. Furnishing was with light oak and maple, unlike some hotels which have heavy dark furnishings. The beds, very comfortable - I am a light sleeper but slept nine hours my first night. Other features which I enjoyed and should be standard in nice hotels include:
Keurig coffee machine in the room.
Real coffee mugs and real glasses - not paper and plastic.
A mini fridge that was cool, rather than luke warm like other hotels.
Lots of towels and supplies in the bathroom.
The Wifi was easy to access and worked well.
Full length lighted dressing mirror. Handy when dressing in a suit.
A wonderful complimentary continental breakfast which included actual fresh fruit, choices of cereals, breads, bagels, muffins, plus hard boiled eggs. Waffles were available too. To make my day, they even had Earl Grey tea! Any place that has Earl Grey tea has to be good!
The Colonel Butler Inn is so convenient to historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. I pretty well walked everywhere in a few minutes. For lunch and dinner there are two restaurants within yards of the hotel, one is Butler's which is next door and the other is a lovely place, across the street, the Little Red Rooster. Also there is a Subway and a Tim Hortons very close by.
The town is billed as "the prettiest town in Canada," and I would agree. So if you are going to visit the area, I would very, very highly recommend the Colonel Butler Inn. I have been here twice and not been dissatisfied in any way. For the most part, I like and trust Best Western, having stayed in many of them in Canada, the USA and even some in Europe. Only one bad Best Western experience, but that place (which shall remain unnamed) is now closed. Anyway, the Colonel Butler Inn puts the "Best" into Best Western. I could not have asked for a nicer little Easter vacation. Thanks to the friendly and welcoming staff. less
