Absolutely Fabulous!

Me and my husband spent a short weekend at the falls and we could not have picked a better bed and breakfast. This was our first b&b experience and we would do it all over again. Scott was so helpful from the time of booking to our departure home. He is very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and can answer any questions you have on the "must visit" list. Place is very clean and cozy. oh and you cant forget about the breakfasts, PHENOMENAL! Best breakfasts we have ever had staying anywhere. You will not go wrong if you choose Ambiance as your getaway spot.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review for other potential travelers considering a stay here. I'm so pleased that your first B&B experience was here and that you had a great experience. It's certainly a true joy and pleasure to welcome guests from near and far to Niagara Falls. Thanks again for staying and for the very kind words. I hope in your future travels that you continue to consider a Bed and Breakfast property for your lodging needs. Personally, I hope to also welcome you back here to Niagara Falls in the future.

A B&B That Will Enhance Your Experience at Niagara

My partner and I stayed at Ambiance for our anniversary. As a first timer to Niagara Falls, I was more than pleasantly surprised by the location (my partner had stayed on the strip before and was definitely relieved by the tranquility of the B&B). The walk to the Falls and all the attractions was even closer to me than it seemed on google maps. What's more, it's in a residential area, and though just a few blocks away, it made a world of difference! Then there was the hospitality - absolutely top notch! Such a great balance of privacy and attentive service. We stayed in the Blue Room, and it was just perfect. It is nicely decorated and furnished (you feel like a guest at a friend's who actually cares about your comfort and the cleanliness). And what's not to love about your private, pristine washroom! In terms of the value, we went during off-peak and that was perfect for our budget ($80). It's also good to keep in mind that all hotels/motels WILL charge you for parking, whether they advertise that online or not! Usually $12. Here you have free parking and an easy walk and easy drive to Niagara on the Lake. On top of that, we were amazed with the fine breakfast - Scott really goes all out :) It's been 2 months since our stay and after reflection, I still have nothing negative to say about it. I suspect that even though the summer prices are a bit steep for us, I would end up staying there because the very very small difference in price (in comparison to other locations) pays off exponentially. Having zero complaints about your accommodations is worth every penny. Thanks Scott!

Comfortable Rooms Close to Niagara Falls

Stayed at this cozy bed and breakfast, which exceeded our expectations, over Memorial Day weekend. Ambiance by the Falls provides clean and comfortable rooms along with a great breakfast. Scott is a warm and ready host who can provide information about the area and attractions! Thanks for a great stay!

Superb value, close enough to Falls, but far enough away from the strip.

A seriously good location. If you stay on the Canadian side, you know that up on the strip it can get noisy, the hotels expensive. This place is just two blocks off where the strip area begins, but tucked into a nice little neighborhood pocket. Close enough to get everywhere quickly by walking, far enough to be able to sleep. Parking in the back, super clean rooms, and small number of rooms. New owners now for a couple of years, Scott used to be in the hotel business and it shows. They've clearly made it their home. Our New Year's Eve trip from NYC was an adventure, made easier by this lucky choice.

Another great experience!

This was my second B&B experience here. I stayed here about one year ago and had to come back for a few more days to enjoy the Niagara region while visiting southern Ontario. I enjoyed my stay here last year and was not disappointed this time either. The B&B has made some nice decor changes from a year ago and it was still nice then! The Yellow room which I stayed in this trip was very nicely decorated. Scott and Diane were also able to provide great info on some other nearby things a shorter drive away to see and visit besides the Falls. Niagara-on-the-Lake was a wonderful scenic afternoon trip as well as the Welland Canal. Also ejoyed sitting out on the backyard deck with some wine in the evening. They cheerfully provided the wine glasses and opener. The breakfast was again very good and filling. Enjoyed the conversations with other guests at breakfast! You are wonderful hosts and guides. Thanks again!

Wonderful Location and People

My husband and I scheduled a last minute weekend getaway, and we were delighted to spend it here, at Ambiance by the Falls. Scott and Diane were lovely, cordial individuals that made us feel welcome and at ease with our first experience at a B&B. Scott makes a lovely breakfast, but be prepared not to be hungry until late in the evening! You won't find better hospitality, value or location than the Ambiance. We would love to stay here again!

Wonderful Stay and Location

The Ambiance by the Falls surpassed all of our expectations. Scott takes great pride and puts a lot of effort in providing a spotlessly clean and comfortable haven. The food was delicious and on the finest of settings. Would definitely stay again, especially at such great rates. 5 stars. Diane & Bill, Nevada.

New owners- great service

We are just leaving the home after a wonderful stay and wish we could stay longer. I told Scott (new owner) that he was "born for this"! He is truly a very hospitable person and went way above our expectations with everything. Thanks for making us feel special as my husband and i dont often have time to "get away"... but we'll be back and tell our friends for sure!

About the innkeepers

I have worked in the hotel business my entire adult life. After travelling and staying in some B&B properties and researching the B&B industry, it seemed like a good fit for my personality type and an opportunity to leave the daily grind of the hotel business and be able to offer guests a personal accommodation experience while living in a beautiful area! My wife and I purchased the B&B in 2011. We love welcoming guests from all over the world.
