Sisters and I had a dinner at the hotel and quite enjoyed it. We had a variety of meals from pasta to scallops and all were pleased with the food. The chocolate cake wasn't spectacular, but aside from that we were happy with our choice. Still spoke of it the next day.

NIce looking both indoors and outdoors. We ate indoors. Service staff is nice. Food is fine. I had the soup of the day which was very good and the ravioli which was heavy. The concensus amongst 6 of us was "it's okay"

My wife and I stayed only one night...travelled from Montreal. Reached the Gate House late in the night. Great welcome, clean, very functional....the manager invited us to have a glass of wine. Good breakfast...and off we went walking on the commercial high street. Good location too......

While this is not your typical NOTL hotel/inn...it is worth considering for your next visit! There are no antiques or War of 1812 references here...think 80s/white Italian marble deco instead. While this hotel will not appeal to everyone's design-taste, the guestrooms were very clean and well maintained, the deluxe rooms were extremely spacious (20x20?), and very conveniently located on the...

We had never been here before and had no reservation. We drove up and down once and came upon The Gate House and it looked lovely. They had vacancy so we saw two rooms and chose one on lower floor as there was no elevator. Staff on desk gave us a really good rate. This also included breakfast but we... More

My friend and I booked four nights for the Shaw Festival and found our room extremely pleasant. Two double beds and twin sinks bathroom helped to make it a great stay. Certainly the location was ideal as we did not have a car. My only complaint would be that the room itself, while large was slightly sterile and their was... More

We made the mistake of stopping here for a late lunch/early dinner on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. As we approached the patio of the restaurant staff members averted their eyes. This should have been a clue. We were not in casual dress but rather a notch or two above the Niagara vacationer garb. When we sought out management to find... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting the Shaw Festival and were very comfortable. The hotel is a little bit out of the fray of the town but still on the main street; its simple but very tasteful interior is a welcome contrast to the often too elaborate decor of other hotels in the town. The breakfast, which was... More

After a recommendation from a friend my 91 year old Father and I enjoyed a meal at Ristorante Giardino on August 1st. As season's pass holders at the Shaw Festival we regularly enjoy eating in local restaurants often with friends or family. We will not be returning to Giardino's however because of inadequate access for my Dad who uses a... More

We arrived late at night with no reservation until the next day. The Gate House, which was in townn, had rooms available. No elevator, but staff did help us carry the bags upstairs, without us asking for help. The first room had curtain falling down and broken lamp. They were quick to move us to another room and extended our... More
