Can not say enough about this wonderful outstanding hotel. The staff is so great especially Bruce. He is so helpful with everything from welcoming you to the hotel to driving you to dinner to answering any questions you may have about Niagara on the Lake. He is like having your own historian. The young ladies behind the desk are also... More

In Niagara on the Lake the world disappeared leaving hubby and I alone together in a sea of flowers, sips of wine, history and great food. The Harbour House Hotel was a top notch home base for our explorations.

Absolutely loved this hotel! Will definitely go back! Comfortable, clean, and unique room with fantastic customer service. Our stay was extremely enjoyable and very luxurious. Walking distance to Main Street.

My husband, teenage son and I just got back from two days at this lovely place. I would echo many of the other reviews: great service, nice room, breakfast and location of the property near the water. We really liked it a lot and they were also very helpful with dinner reservations and advice on which wineries to visit. Could... More

My partner and I stayed here August 4-5, 2014. We chose this hotel as part of the Whirlwind of Wine tour package. The rooms were nice and spacious. The location was great - so close to the main downtown area and right near the water. The staff was courteous and extremely helpful. The wine tasting happy hour was a nice... More

We selected the Harbour House Hotel after reading the the reviews on Tripadvisor. This was our first visit to NOTL and DEFINITELY won't be our last!! What a gem of a place. We arrived earlier than expected and were greeted with a friendly smile and shown to our room on the second floor. We were given a personal tour of... More

Fourth summer in a row in NOTL, each for 5 days at Harbour House. As usual, a wonderful experience. Not much to add to previous reviews. Still noted for first class accomodations without the stuffiness one sometimes gets at such places. We usually stay in the Honeymoon suite to get the benefit of the extra room and larger tub. Great... More

Thank you so much for your continued patronage, and for taking the time to let us know about your experience. The Honeymoon Suite is a comfortable and relaxing retreat and the bathroom is fabulous, we are so glad you enjoy it! I will be sure to look into extra lighting in the room. Niagara sparkling is certainly world class and... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Harbour House Hotel in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, to celebrate a big birthday. Although the hotel is a bit of a walk from the main part of town, it is situated near the river, and we had a lovely view from our room. The room was spacious, and nicely appointed, with... More

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We are happy you chose to join us but regret that your stay was anything less than perfect. I am surprised that you found the bed uncomfortable as this has typically been something that our guests rave about. We replace our beds regularly, but I will be sure to examine all... More

Thank you all so much for just an incredible getaway. My wife and I needed to escape the rigors of the rat race and we found our little gem in the NOTL. We have plans to visit yearly.

With all the travelling we have done this summer, all with other groups of people, we wanted something for ourselves. We live in St. Catharines and have never taken advantage of the NOTL area. We couldn't be happier with our local couples getaway. The Harbour House staff was amazing, probably the most accomodating and friendly we have ever seen, and... More
