Last night, I ate at the Gate House for my first and only time. I ordered the spaghetti entree ($19). I should have known to eat elsewhere when I learned the were unable to 'add meatballs.' Nonetheless, I plowed ahead, and close to an hour later, received what I assumed to be a can full of spaghetti (just $18 more... More

I went with my mother for dinner and found the overall experience average. I was told that the servers were understaffed, explaining their 'poor' service... wasn't necessarily happy with the nervous but I understood. The food was average... nothing over the top. A bit expensive for their food.

We didn't actually stay here , but we called in and had coffee and cake on the terrace and watched the world go by ! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful to the extent of ringing a taxi company for us and showing us around whilst we waited . I would definitely recommend to our friends to stay here...

My friend and I stayed three nights and the entire experience was wonderful. The room was spacious and thoughtfully appointed, and we had a delicious dinner in the restaurant. The best part, however, was the world class service. Everyone was warm, attentive and professional. Special thanks to Joel, who went above and beyond in providing tech support and giving us... More

And then you get upstairs to the rooms. Orange carpet in the hallway, cheapest possible finishings, and little of them, with a bare, naked feel, but the nest part was chlorine stains all over the carpet, just a great feeling walking into this. The room itself was "cheap spartan", orange carpet again with white splotches caused by bleach, orange cheap... More

Our overall stay at this hotel was good. However, we were disappointed with the decor and amenities provided in the room. It was sparsely furnished and a bit cold. There was no tea making service, safe or mini bar in the room. We paid approximately Cdn$175 per night and we expected a few extras for this class of hotel. Wifi... More

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...
