The Riverbend is a beautiful hotel only a mile from central Niagara-On-The-Lake. However, they try a little too hard to be "classy", by adding things like fake impressionist paintings. The room was nice with a vaulted ceiling and great view of the vineyards.
However, when something went wrong, and it did, they were unwilling to admit error and provide a customer-friendly remedy. During the night my smoke detector started beeping. Apparently, the battery was dead. After the handyman came in and couldn't solve the problem, to the consternation of me and nearby guests, I was moved to an inferior room. No compensation was provided; it seemed to them that I was the one that caused the problem
If they want return customers, they should be loosen up a bit and look at things from the customer's viewpoint.
