Our family of four had dinner at the Gate House Hotel restaurant (we did not stay at the hotel-thankfully!) last weekend-and we will not be back. The positives: 1) pizza (although oily) was delicious-one of the best we have had in a while 2) curtains inside the restaurant were pretty The negatives: 1) service was (just) ok-waiters not very friendly...

I can't comment on the food because we left. We really loved the look of the restaurant and the patio was beautiful. Walked up and saw multiplte empty tables, many more empty tables inside. We were told there would be a 50 minute to an hour wait. We were puzzled to say the least. They apparently only have two seatings... More

My friend and I, both recently widowed, spent six nights at the Gate House. It is a wonderful little boutique hotel. The staff, without exception, were very friendly and efficient. The entire hotel was sparkling clean. Our room was large and we appreciated the two sinks. The restaurant's food was very good. We ate most of our meals there. Frank... More

We drove to Niagara-on-the-Lake without a reservation for hotel accommodations. Not knowing what to expect, we found the Gate House as we entered Queen Street. The restaurant patio looked inviting. The location was perfect walking distance to Queen Street's attractions. We walked in and they showed us two different rooms. We chose the larger room, Room #1, and it was... More

We didn't stay in the hotel but did visit the restaurant. Stay away, it's not worth your time or money! Very slow and rude service. Read the other reviews, we ignored them and gave the restaurant benefit of the doubt!!! It was a terrible mistake

My wife and I stayed at the Gate House on July 10, 2015. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very spacious with two queen beds and a large sitting area. The room was very clean with a newly renovated bathroom. It was adequately air conditioned and quiet. A Kuering coffee maker was available... More

Canada Day is a special time for our family we end the day with Dinner at the Gate House for the last 10 years and 2015 at 4:45 our family was there. The first 2 hours went by with no service other than begging for a cup of coffee which ended up being cold. At 8:00pm we were done. I... More

This letter was written to the Manager at the Gate House Restaurant. He said he would make enquiries and get back to us as this wasn't the level of hospitality he aspired to; I never heard from him again. My family and I were at the Gate House Restaurant for dinner on Saturday, May 23rd. We had not booked a... More

For 250 this hotel was worst than a motel. The rooms were furnished with furniture from the local dump. The amenities were non-existent. We had a blackout for more than 4 hours. the emergency exit were completely out. Just do yourself a favor, book a motel 6 because the service is about the same if not better. The Gate House... More

A good place to stop for lunch when touring the Niagara Falls area north of the falls. The food was excellent and different. The fish spaghetti was especially good. And so was the fungus soup; different. The service was excellent. We did not stay at the hotel; only ate lunch there.
