My husband and I have traveled to Niagara on the Lake for the Shaw Festival several times, each time staying in a different hotel. This year we tried the Harbour House, and may very well break with tradition and return next year. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Festival Theater, the largest venue in town, and offers a shuttle to get to the other theaters or restaurants quickly. Its location off the main street means that it's quiet, parking is convenient, and the rooms are both spacious and comfortable. A generous buffet breakfast is included in the room rate, as is a wine and cheese reception in the lobby area each afternoon. The staff were very helpful, offering to arrange dinner reservations or trips to local attractions. Offhand, the only suggestion I'd make would be the addition of a dresser of some kind in the bedrooms; I do like to be able to unpack, even for a short stay, and though the closets were ample, the drawer space was quite limited.
The hotel is expensive, and has no spa, exercise room, or restaurant, so for that reason I can't give it full marks for "dollar value", but otherwise it is a lovely alternative in this beautiful little town. A nice change, and one to which we look forward to returning.
