My husband and I went to Keefer for a 9 course tasting menu to celebrate his job and we were delighted as how amazing it truly was. The chef was able to create everything gluten free for me (even the amazing sponge cake) All 9 courses I could actually eat! And boy were they good! Course after course we just... More

We were greeting promptly by Jimmy, who was also our server. He had great knowledge of the food that was being prepared for us and was very attentive and personable. Loved the local... More

We had about a dozen people looking for an 'end-of-year appreciation dinner' and the Keefer Mansion was the perfect spot. The venue is simply stunning, everyone felt like royalty. Chef Erik prepared a great meal to suit everyone's needs. Highly recommended for a unique and memorable event.

The staff at Keefer make your stay exemplary. The young manager and his girlfriend Tia made our stay- they were so kind, so well-informed, so customer focused and on the ball. The housekeeping staff were also very kind indeed and full of wonderful stories about the history of the place and its (friendly!) ghosts- though of course we didn't sense... More

A business meeting and dinner was organized at the Keefer for a group of about 30 from all over Ontario who had a great deal of interest in built heritage. The dinner was wonderful, the service excellent, the staff attentive, and the venue was perfect for a group such as this. They had a tour of the building and everyone... More

We had a chance to dine at the restaurant in the Keefer Mansion. This is definitely NIagara region's best kept secret. The Hostess / server did a great job of telling us the history of the building. What a great charming Inn overlooking the Welland canal. Dinner was excellent with some great options as well as terrific specials. Very nice... More

We visited 13 venues in the Niagara Region before selecting the Keefer Mansion Inn to hold our wedding ceremony and reception on Saturday December 29th, 2012. It was the perfect setting for a small wedding - 31 total. We were able to seat everyone at one long table in the large dining room, the smaller dining room was able to... More

My wife and I spent four nights there during the holidays when our own house was overloaded with family. We took a very small but comfortable room with a good bed, stylish bathroom and a smallish TV that gave us lots of channel choices. The breakfasts were great and the staff went out of it's way to make us comfortable.... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Keefer Inn in Thorold. A beautiful, majestic Victorian mansion with well appointed rooms, four poster beds and antique furnishings. The breakfast ( included) in the morning was fantastic with fresh fruit waffles and quiche - all homemade. The owner was very gracious and accommodating to our late arrival. We are definitely coming... More

We booked in for dinner, stay and breakfast and were very pleased. The room was quaint and well outfitted (even a welcome treat) and the service was very friendly. The history of the building was well displayed and very interesting. Both meals were very good. Highlights included large shrimp, an extremely tender cut of beef and excellent waffles.
