This review is only about the patio restaurant at the front of the hotel. The food is a bit expensive, but we loved the romantic atmosphere, the warm summer evening, and the food here was great. Supper was a perfect end to a great theatre day in Niagara-On-The-Lake.

We arrived without any reservations, and had none when we left! This was one of the Highlights of our trip. We were greeted as if we were "old " friends. We did get there early afternoon so we had a choice of rooms..ALL of which were thoroughly clean and refreshing. My wife chose a coroner room, with just one room... More

We stumbled across the restaurant on our way out of town. The lunch was delicious. Pizza and caprese salad were excellent, as was the wine. Service was pretty slow though and we spent most of our time allotted in Niagara-On-The-Lake eating here.

We stayed at The Gate House Hotel in July, as their Italian Restaurant gets great reviews. Sadly the rooms were VERY basic, although spacious.On arrival it seemed to be a struggle to get assistance with our luggage. Breakfast was quaint, and enjoyable....and the staff generally friendly...but we wouldnt stay at The Gate House again, when ever we revisit Niagara on... More

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
