Sitting on a historic village green where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario, the Charles is all about outdoor living.

The bright, airy common rooms in this sprawling Georgian mansion flow out to tiered terraces and private gardens; just down the road are historic forts, parks, a golf course, and access to the waterfront pedestrian path – with views across the river to New York State.

You could spend a whole day al fresco here, taking your crab Benedict breakfast (massive, moreish) on the verandah facing the ninth hole.

It’s just as well: the (least expensive) deluxe rooms are a bit poky. Go for a larger premium-tier room if you plan on late lie-ins and evenings by the fireplace.


Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...

Niagara Falls

Ontario, Canada

View of falls from underneath at the side

There’s only one reason most people come to this Ontario city straddling the border of the United States and Canada, and that’s to see the remarkable Horseshoe Falls waterfall. Just outside the city is the Niagara Wine region, home to world-class vineyards – another compelling reason to visit.
