The Oban Inn, Niagara-on-the-Lake – 17 to 21 September 2015

While in Niagara-on-the-Lake, we stayed at the Oban Inn on Front Street.

After parking the car, entering the hotel, the first thing you see at reception is a Roman Bather.

The current Oban Inn was opened in November 1992, after the 1824 Inn was completely destroyed in a fire on Christmas Day 1992.

Having forewarned the hotel, prior to arrival that our checkin date was my wife’s birthday, a small birthday gift was awaiting her on the bed in our room.

If you are after a cooked breakfast, this is not the place for you. The breakfast is a selection of fruits, pastries meat and cheese. We were also offered toasted bagels or toast.

We had a problem with the plumbing in the bathroom, which once mentioned at reception was fixed and gave sterling service for the rest of our visit.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is an ideal base for visiting the Niagara region, and where better to stay than the Oban Inn.
