“Wonderful weekend getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

We stayed here March 9 and 10. We stayed in a King room with whirpool tub and a sitting area. The decor was wonderful, The bed was extremely comfortable and the atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for in a getaway. We had a WONDERFUL dinner at the hotel restaurant which served wonderful food paired beautifully with Ontario VQA wine. The building was beautiful and even in the off season this is a wonderful place to get away.

Room Tip: I don't think you would get a bad room here.

The POW is my favorite 'go to quick getaway' spot when I need a mini break. And I'm happy to go with my husband, my friends or by myself-it's always a lovely place to stay. This past new year my husband and I booked a weekend getaway there. Upon check in we were greeted warmly by Carlton, the young man running the front desk. When we requested a room change Carlton made the change effortlessly (or made it appear that way!), quickly and gave us an amazing room with no fuss. It made bringing in the new year in NOTL the perfect choice, and I'm off there again because I can't get enough!

Beautiful hotel... good staff .. lovely dinner .. guitarist in the lounge.. very good.. very expensive however.

We checked in on a Friday.. given a suite with a fireplace .. perfect ..

The downside was that there were high winds and whatever equipment is on the roof, rattled most of the night keeping us awake. We reported this on our comment card and to the staff and were told .. they would look into it .. to be fixed.

Probably would not stay there again because of that.. take your chances is my comment.

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the staff. I am pleased to know that you enjoyed the dining and the lounge experience, too. Many of our guests enjoy our Friday night entertainment. I wish to apologize for the disruption in sleep caused by the noise from the rooftop. You are correct that the high winds have made an impact, as this month we have experienced more than one day of excessive winds. (and beautiful warmer days!) These winds have, in fact, caused some minor damage that we had to repair. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I do hope that you would reconsider another visit to our property and to our beautiful town.
Kindest Regards,
Michelle

We stayed at the Prince of Wales overnight on our way back from Florida to Toronto, where we live. We have stayed there many times both during the summer as well as in the winter.
This stay was in January 2012. After three days of driving 10-12 hours per day and staying at non-descript highway hotels and eating at fast food stops it was a treat to arrive at the Prince of Wales. We got an upgraded suite at the front of the hotel for an additional $50, had a refreshing hot shower and a very pleasant dinner in the hotel restaurant. During the winter the hotel is not usually as busy as it is in season and the additional attention and service that we received was very pleasant.
We have been staying at this hotel once or twice per year for many years and will continue to do so. It's one of the best hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

We were offered an upgrade when checking in and got the best room in the house! Luxurious, oozing character, so many lovely touches, from the heated towel rack, radiant heat in the marble bathroom floor, fresh oranges, period furniture and a rose on the bed at turn down. Pampering to the extreme.

Our group was there on the weekend for business. The staff were professional, very welcoming and accommodating in all aspects of our stay. The Hotel is situated in the heart of the town and is a lovely walk for shopping and sightseeing. Meals as well were top notch.
Although we were on business we felt as though we were on a vacation in terms of the service.

My wife and I stayed at the Prince during the ice wine festival in January. This hotel is among the best in Canada Maybe the world, I have never had such good pairings with food and great Ontario wines ever before. Our room was perfect as it fit perfectly into the heritage of this wonderful town . I can't think of a better place to travel for a long weekend than Niagara on the lake and the Prince of Whales. Thanks for the best weekend ever.
