Best afternoon tea

As someone who has taken afternoon tea at the best hotels in London (U.K.) and New York City I would rate this as the best afternoon tea I have ever had. The quality of the tea, sandwiches, pastries, service and ambience (gorgeous but intimate room) was outstanding. We will definitely be back!

Treated ourselves to tea in the drawing room. Like stepping back in time plus outstanding service. The hotel itself is a landmark so don't miss walking around the whole place. Add this to your visit to Niagara-on-the-Lake!

We made a reservation for 5 for tea as a special treat for our holiday with 4 out of town guests. It was not mentioned when we made a reservation for 5 that we might not be able to be seated in the window seating area. When we arrived we were placed on a couch for 3 and chairs at... More

Have been going to Niagara on the Lake for 34 years. On our first visit we stayed at the Prince of Wales. Went back again this year for drinks and apps. Excellent service and good food.

How can I praise the Drawing Room tea experience enough! With bone china, your own pot of tea, and fabulous food. Plan to take your time- it's not to be rushed! We went the whole 9 yards, starting with a delicious cheese and fruit plate, proceeding with tea sandwiches, scones and pastries. And I couldn't forget to mention clotted cream... More

Have been for high tea a few times and never been disappointed. Enjoyed a variety of finger sandwiches and pastries with scones clotted cream and jam. Atmosphere is Victorian. Beautiful at Christmas during December when decorated for the holidays.

A great treat for a ladies Day , relax and soak up the experience. We had a lovely day and this location made our visit very special. If you want to show your daughter a special day this would be one place to start the experience and the art gallery is across the road ....a day of culture.

We stopped in here for a cocktail before heading for our dinner out. It was nice atmosphere as we sat outside along the porch and watch tourists stroll by. The prices are pretty steep for a drink $9.50 but it is a tourist town.

Wonderful spot for a tea party! Great ambiance, felt very old-world and classic. The food was delicious and premium quality, in particular the scones.

I was looking for a late lunch and had a fine order of beer-battered fish and chips along with a local brewed beer. The food was good as was the service.
