We had a wonderful time, despite the rain! The staff were very friendly and great at suggesting places to visit. We will most certainly be returning to this lovely spot in the very near future.

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Harbour House, and it was a fabulous experience! From the moment we checked in, until the moment we checked out--it was perfection! Very friendly and helpful staff, great wine and cheese pairing in the late afternoon, wonderful breakfast!!!, ride to and from dinner--unheard of in other hotels! I loved all... More

I just recently stayed at the Harbour House with my other half and we absolutely loved this little boutique hotel. Everything from the quality of the rooms to the friendliness of the staff is superb. Such warm and welcoming atmosphere, gorgeous and convenient location right by the lake, minutes away from the restaurants and shops. The unique attention to details... More

Chose Harbour House after reading other Trip Advisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. Lovely room and gorgeous bathroom. We stayed in 4 hotels during our trip to Ontario and this hotel was my favourite. The hotel is only a short walk from the main town centre but I particularly liked the fact we were offered a lift to a restaurant that... More

My partner and I stayed at The Harbour House Hotel as a special night away, to just indulge in each other. The check in was very efficient, and the staff were extremely friendly. The wine and cheese sampling was delightful. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic!! Fresh fruit, homemade breads, freshly baked apple french toast and warm maple syrup... More

Thank you to the harbour house for giving my fiance and I a relaxing retreat away from our baby. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I had a wonderful full night sleep and the corner jacuzzi tub was perfect for two. We did a wine tour with grape escape wine tours which was awesome. Our fav. winery was Reif Estate.... More

I visited Niagara-on-the-Lake with my other half recently and we were very excited to stay at the Harbour House Hotel. In fact, it has a lot going for it: fantastic central location, gorgeous decorating, and all the mod cons. Everything was going swimmingly until we hit breakfast the next morning at 9.30am. (Breakfast is served, buffet style, from 8-10am.) Unfortunately,... More

My husband and I had booked a night at Harbour House for ourselves as well as a special thank you for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. We had stayed at several other inns and hotels in Niagara on the Lake before, but we didn't expect the ambiance and the quaintness of the hotel. It was like being in Cape Code, MA.... More

We had gone down to Niagara on the Lake and had stayed at the Shaw Club Hotel which is also an exceptional property but decided to try the Harbour House which is a sister property to the Shaw Club. Right from time of booking until our departure we had attentive service and from such a warm staff. The suite we... More
