“Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

My wife and I had the pleasure of a three day visit to Niagara on the Lake. Although we've visited many times before, we never stayed at the Harbour House Hotel until this past trip.
We were both impressed with the overall cleanliness of the hotel, the decor and of course the great buffet breakfasts.
Our room was comfortable and clean. The Staff was great. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back.
Harbour House Hotel is expensive, but well worth the cost for the breakfast buffet alone.

It was a lovely hotel on the small size and the rooms were very comfortable and restful to sleep in. The washroom was exquisit and the wooden shutters were lovely and homey. The included breakfast was very nice and very much appreciated.

The only thing stopping another stay here again, is the high cost per night.

Terrific weekend getaway for our wedding anniversary. The room was very cozy, the fireplace was wonderful on a very damp and chilly evening. Although the hotel was totally booked it was always nice and quiet. We didn't use our car all weekend, shuttle was available if we liked, although we walked to the shows and restaurants. We chose the package that included bikes with a picnic and passes to several wineries, it was one of the most enjoyable days I've ever had! The breakfast included fresh fruits, breads, cereals, pastries and some absolutely delicious warm breakfast casseroles (different each morning), everything was wonderful! The staff could have been any kinder and all were extremely helpful with any questions we had. The only negative would be that after traveling quite a distance and arriving after 3:00pm our room was not ready. Other than that ,everything was terrific!

Loved this small boutique hotel. They have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable, from the free wine and cheese tasting at 4pm every afternoon, to the delicious breakfasts with the special dish of the day - variations of French toast. Our room was lovely and very well decorated and comfortably fitted out. One small negative, I didn't like the toilet not having a lid, especially with the tea and coffee making facilities in the same room. The location is ideal for a short stroll to the Main Street. Parking is under cover, and the wifi is free and fast.

Room Tip: We had room 303 on the third floor and it was lovely.

Recently my 2 sisters & their husbands along with my husband & I spent a few days at the Harbour House to celebrate a significant birthday. We purchased the wine tour package. We loved the accomodations, the staff, the breakfast as well as dinner at the Charles Inn and wine tour included in the package. I would highly recommend this inn to people looking for a relaxed and comfortable setting close enough to walk to the main street but far enough off the main street to be quiet.

This is what I just sent the manager of the Harbour House(much more an Inn than a hotel - way better):

Ryan:
Just wanted to let you know what an extraordinary time my mother and I had at your inn this past Thurs/Fri.
Everything was perfect - the staff, the rooms-so clean with beautiful bathroom and furniture, wine and cheese - scrumptious breakfast and to top it off a ride to and from our theater!
Also - the apples and cookies were a nice added touch.
We met some really nice guests as well and purchased some of your amazing home made granola : ) Thank you so much - we will be back and will mention your treasure to others!!
Lisa

Room Tip: May be better on the 2nd and 3rd floor - than the first - although the whole Inn was quiet!

We stayed at the Harbour House for two nights for a small honeymoon get away in September. The room was not ready on our arrival, but it was only 2PM. The staff is really friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 107 conveniently located on the main floor, which has a gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub and separate shower. I found the heated bathroom floor a real treat and unexpected touch. The hotel was very quiet at night, even when full of guests. There is a selection of DVDs, games and books in the front lobby.

Breakfast is lovely, but a tad heavy on it's selection of pastries/carbs. There is complementary wine tasting every day at 4PM. We had the hotel help us with reservations for dinner each night. It was helpful to review their book of menus in the area. While the hotel is definitely close enough for a walk into town, they do offer a complimentary shuttle to take you around, which we made use of. Twice the hotel went out of its way to make our stay extra special. The first was a bottle of sparkling wine in our room and the second was informing their sister property, the Charles, that we were on our honeymoon and we were provided with a special cocktail to celebrate with.
