High Tea

So glad that we splurged on the High Tea! After selecting our personal tea, we were served a three tier tray of finger sandwiches and pastries. Plus two large fruit-filled scones. So much food that we only ate half! We each also had our own full pot of tea. A beautiful setting - highly recommend!

Went to visit the Prince of Wales hotel for afternoon tea last Sunday. We had to make an appointment a week in advance and when we arrived we found that they couldn't find our names on the booking list. I was a little irked when the lady said "I believe you" as if she really didn't. It put a damper... More

The high tea was a great experience. There was plenty of food and we had to doggy-bag some of it. Victoria was very knowledgeable, especially about the business history of the hotel/ownership. She was very enthusiastic about answering our questions.

We had afternoon tea at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Everything was beautiful, from the furniture to the roses, china, silverware and warm fireplace. It felt like we were transported back to a differ time where the finer things were done to the max and service was expected to be wonderful. Our experience did not disappoint. The selection... More

This place is super cute and very pretty! I went with a couple girlfriends to relax and this place was amazing! The different teas were nice, especially the Peaces and Cream (must try) We also had an amazing server named Grace! She was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area!

On a recent trip to Niagara On the Lake, we booked Afternoon Tea in The Drawing Room at Prince of Wales Hotel. It was absolutely fabulous! Being mid-week we had The Drawing Room virtually to ourselves, and took the opportunity to wander around and take pictures. Entering the Prince of Wales is like stepping back in time. The service was... More

Absolutely fantastic high tea with my Mom for Mother's day. Booked a seating in advance. Pastries and tea were delightful. Scones were perfectly baked with double devon cream included. Wonderful atmosphere. Dress code in effect.

We had never been before and she took the time to explain how everything worked and made some wonderful suggestions that we did try and were very happy with. Grace suggested several teas (we ordered two of her suggestions) and... More

A perfect way to make an already enjoyable experience of Niagara on the lake transform into a complete delight. Take your Mom for... More

This was long-anticipated, and we were not disappointed. Heavenly cream tea was amazing. Friendly staff, namely, Grace, who was very knowledgable and spent time guiding us through all the options. Food tip: we went straight for the warm scones and didn't have enough room to finish the tray. We brought more than half the treats home and it made another... More
