My wife and I spent one night at the hotel a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and comfortable, the staff were very nice, the included breakfast suited us fine, and the front desk staff were very helpful with directions, suggestions, reservations, etc. Just a very good experience and would definitely recommend to others. We will stay there again next time in the area.

Room Tip: Ours was 3rd floor harbour view, but seemed very quiet throughout the hotel, so not sure there is mu...

Stay was business related and overall very happy with the service, facility and location. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The meals were fine, although we had dinner offsite while there.

My wife and I had the pleasure of a three day visit to Niagara on the Lake. Although we've visited many times before, we never stayed at the Harbour House Hotel until this past trip.
We were both impressed with the overall cleanliness of the hotel, the decor and of course the great buffet breakfasts.
Our room was comfortable and clean. The Staff was great. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back.
Harbour House Hotel is expensive, but well worth the cost for the breakfast buffet alone.

It was a lovely hotel on the small size and the rooms were very comfortable and restful to sleep in. The washroom was exquisit and the wooden shutters were lovely and homey. The included breakfast was very nice and very much appreciated.

The only thing stopping another stay here again, is the high cost per night.

Terrific weekend getaway for our wedding anniversary. The room was very cozy, the fireplace was wonderful on a very damp and chilly evening. Although the hotel was totally booked it was always nice and quiet. We didn't use our car all weekend, shuttle was available if we liked, although we walked to the shows and restaurants. We chose the package that included bikes with a picnic and passes to several wineries, it was one of the most enjoyable days I've ever had! The breakfast included fresh fruits, breads, cereals, pastries and some absolutely delicious warm breakfast casseroles (different each morning), everything was wonderful! The staff could have been any kinder and all were extremely helpful with any questions we had. The only negative would be that after traveling quite a distance and arriving after 3:00pm our room was not ready. Other than that ,everything was terrific!

Loved this small boutique hotel. They have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable, from the free wine and cheese tasting at 4pm every afternoon, to the delicious breakfasts with the special dish of the day - variations of French toast. Our room was lovely and very well decorated and comfortably fitted out. One small negative, I didn't like the toilet not having a lid, especially with the tea and coffee making facilities in the same room. The location is ideal for a short stroll to the Main Street. Parking is under cover, and the wifi is free and fast.

Room Tip: We had room 303 on the third floor and it was lovely.

Recently my 2 sisters & their husbands along with my husband & I spent a few days at the Harbour House to celebrate a significant birthday. We purchased the wine tour package. We loved the accomodations, the staff, the breakfast as well as dinner at the Charles Inn and wine tour included in the package. I would highly recommend this inn to people looking for a relaxed and comfortable setting close enough to walk to the main street but far enough off the main street to be quiet.
