They were rude and did not honor our reservation. Said their kitchen had closed! We drove over an hour to get there for a special occasion. The person who we spoke to was condescending and loudly repeated our name 6 times for the whole restaurant to hear. Tip for travelers: AVOID this place

Form the Inn to the restaurant and the spa, each experience was wonderful. The rooms are spacious with super comfortable beds that you just don't want to leave. Restaurant is cozy and the food is delicious. Spa was a wonderful experience. I had a facial but it was more like a full body massage and facial. The location is just... More

The service was great and the food was very tasty, especially the mussels appetizer. We could have had a bowl of the broth they came in as a soup! We felt that the portions were a bit small for the price, however. Additionally, the building, while elegant, was not the original structure, which was burned down ten plus years ago.

Hubby treated me to a lovely birthday dinner at this elegant old inn that overlooks Lake Ontario. The ambiance inside and out is beautiful and serene. The service was excellent as was the dinner. The only wines available however are local Ontario wines--we had one we liked but would have liked a choice--however, it may be a local law as... More

Everyone liked their dish. Very good food. THis may have been one place you could also buy wine not from Niagara...which can be a good thing.

A new chef just arrived in Late September, give her time to adjust with new staff, when food finally arrived it was perfect. New wait staff as well.

Our stay here was more like 3 star. Our suite was in a small house and there was a party going on in the hallway and in the upstairs. We couldn't sleep well due to the noise and people in the rest of the house, plus the stomping from people walking above us. They should not have let us rent... More

A few short weeks ago my husband and I hosted a dinner and theatre night with close personal friends. We decided to dine at The Oban Inn as a) it has a grand reputation, and b) it is right next door to where we live. The first experience was a-bust as dinner arrived late and we had to abandon it...

Enjoyed an anniversary dinner at the Oban Inn. It was a busy night, but service was friendly and food delicious. Price wasn't too outrageous given the location and setting. Would go back again.

Thank Maryann B
