What others are saying

  • I have stayed here twice. Beautiful historic building, but all of the modern conveniences. This is an 1820 historic building, but has been fully renovated. At the same time they have kept the character of the old building. It is the best place I have stayed in the Hamilton area. Breakfast was included, and it was very also very good. Great place.

  • This Inn was over the top! The staff was so courteous and polite! The room was beautiful! The breakfast was wonderful with the chef that was in the dining room with us preparing us omelettes! We were treated like royalty. An establishment that the owners and management should be very proud of!

  • The Barrack's Inn is a wonderful compliment to the charming downtown of Ancaster. It was a pleasure to stay in this Inn. From the welcoming staff to the charm and elegance of the building it was all fantastic! I highly recommend walking through the library onto the terrace facing Wilson St just to take in all the local sites and sounds. We look forward to staying again!

We did it again! !
