We are so pleased we stayed at Lions Head B&B. Helena, the owner and chef, was just wonderful. Each day at 9am she serves an outstanding fresh breakfast. She serves using her china, crystal, and silver , in her dining room. She shares stories and engages all guests individually. We were fortunate to have a house full of wonderful strangers...

Helena is an incredible hostess! From the minute you meet her you will be delighted by her charm. She's a great chef too and makes amazing breakfasts! We loved the location! Within walking distance to all the falls fun! We just parked our car and walked everywhere. You will not be disappointed in a stay at lion's head!

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.

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.
