This is a very pleasant place to stay. It is certainly within walking distance to most of the things you would want to see in NOTL. The staff was very nice. Breakfast was good. However, when I spend this much on a room, I expect it to be top notch. It really wasn't a bad stay but could have been... More

I discovered this boutique hotel on tripadvisor which included a 15% discount as a bonus. The reviews were all positive and I was not disappointed! The delicious continental breakfast was included and featured a hot breakfast casserole every am as well. The room was clean and beautifuly appointed. The location was perfect..we walked everywhere in the town. The wineries were... More

We traveled as a group (3 couples) to NOTL and would all happily return for another visit. Harbor House is an Inn, with some lovely B&B characteristics. It is not a hotel in the traditional sense with room service or fitness facilities. Reserved in Feb for 2 nights, 3 rooms. Added one night on (one couple) - this change was... More

This is a GREAT place for a romantic get away. It's a beautiful old building, the rooms are clean and lovely, nice plush beds, beautiful bathroom with big bathtub/hot tub, great breakfast (WONDERFUL), very close to downtown (10 min walk). Only complaint would be that the service at the front desk is slow. If the owner is around, he's wonderful,... More

Room (actually a suite) was beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained. Staff bent over backward to serve guests. Could not have been nicer or more helpful and gracious. Covered parking is much appreciated. My only gripe is about the breakfast. Served from 8-10, but ran out of many items by 9. Also the breakfast room is too small and has communal... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely, relaxing one night stay at this quaint hotel in beautiful Niagara on the Lake.

Our first visit and we were charmed by the small inn feel. Room was spotless, upgraded bathroom, lovely linens. Healthy breakfast buffet with fresh fruit, granola, egg casserole, large bread selection. Very attentive staff that helped with dinner reservations. Pet friendly but make sure they know in advance since pet rooms are limited.
