Historical Traveler Reviews Harbour House Hotel Niagara-on-the-Lake
What a treat!
Wow. Wow. Wow. From feather beds and fireplaces to jacuzzi baths and olde town charm, this is the height of hospitality AND value. I can't stress enough how much the staff did everything they could to help us. More importantly, I can't stress enough how much they succeeded. Thank you - rest assured that we will be back soon!
Like my own private club
My wife and I spent a wonderfully romantic evening at this new "boutique" hotel. Our room was spacious yet intimate. The bathroom was awesome and, of course, a fireplace is always welcome. It seemed as if we were in a private club. The fortunate thing for us is that we reside relatively close to Niagara on the Lake and can return as we wish. In terms of value, it is untouchable.
We stayed at Harbour House late fall on a spare of the moment weekend getaway, we found an unexpected treasure that we now continue to enjoy when ever we can. The attention to detail in both the rooms and bathrooms is not match any where in the area. The staff have a welcoming warmth and frienly way of helping you with every detail of your stay. We have recommended Harbour House to many of our freinds and will continue to do so as each visit is as enjoyable as the last, even Dixie our dog is welcome which means we can get away a little more often. We thank Harbour House for thier commitment to quality in accomedation and service.
A terrific combo
As residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake, we were initially concerned about accommodating another hotel in our popular town. Our concerns proved to be unwarranted, however, as Harbour House represents what we strive to be for tourists and small conference goers alike - extremely attractive and comfortable, well located, initimate, reasonably priced, with a high service level. We are confident that guests will love using it as a base for their activities in the region.
Just to be sure, we bunked in for a weekend before the tourist season started. The experience more than met our expectations!
Even better than last time, if that is possible!!
Just returned from another visit to Harbour House. This is without a doubt the best accommodation in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The breakfast is fabulous and I love the wine and cheese reception. Every staff member that you encounter is smiling and wanting to ensure that everything is perfect. No food & beverage service on site but the concierge makes reservations and we had a great meal at The Charles Inn.
Harbour House wowed us
We recently celebrated our 20th anniversary at Harbour House- and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. We've stayed in most of the hotels in Niagara on the Lake, but Harbour House just opened late last year and this was our first stay- we have never had better service anywhere- the friendliest staff, most service oriented- great rooms with jacuzzis and fireplace, great views of the harbour, and a fantastic breakfast. It was like staying in a private club- they arranged horse drawn carriage rides, made dinner reservations for us at The Charles, which was superb- took us to dinner and picked us up so we could enjoy our wine without worrying about driving. I forgot- the most comfortable bed ever!! great, great, great!!
I'm a travel writer, and I stay at a lot of places good, bad, expensive, not expensive. This is simply one of the loveliest places I've ever stayed, and if you're a Yank, the rates are not terrible for the four-five star accomodations.Views of the harbor are soothing.
Rooms decorated stylishly and not too fluffily..aka, no Victorian B&B trappings. Bathrooms, with huge jetted tubs and sophisticated gray slate floors, even have dimmers! The staff here really seems to take extra steps to ensure people have a good time, from pointing out their favorite wineries to making sure you get to the Shaw shows on time.
Breakfast is elegant and tasty. Can't recommend this place enough.
Loved the Town
This is a beautiful hotel. The trappings are similar to what one would expect paying in the $300 plus room rates. The downfall has to be that there is absolutely no restaurant...and unless you received a room overlooking the Niagara River you're realy on the wrong side of the "tracks". Queen's Landing Inn, on the otherhand will be my next stay.
Queen's Landing Inn's Tiara Restaurant is an outstanding Restauarnt...and if Rudy is working (the waiter) ask for him.
This would be rated as the best B&B in town...but not a HOTEL.
The reviewer claims Harbour House is on the wrong side of the tracks. If three blocks from the centre of the Village and two blocks from our Festival Theatre--overlooking the majestic Niagara River--is not a good location, then why are all the other hotels in town so envious!
Maybe he/she didn't understand the rating system!
The best thing to happen to Niagara-On-The-Lake
We saw the advert in the Globe and decided to try it. Having stayed at the Oban Inn many times, we love the town. The Harbour House Hotel is a wonderful addition to the town. The hotel is small, the rooms are exremely comfortable and the staff couldn't be more friendly. We booked for two mid-week nights and received a free third night. Obviously the hotel offers great value and we will definitely return. Although I haven't atayed in all of the Niagara hotels, my bet is that Harbour House is the best in town. Don't hesitate to make a reservation. One warning, be aware of the service charge. We were quoted for a two day package plus taxes and service. I did not expect to pay 15% service on top of the entire bill. Still it was good value. We will return often.

... was keen NOT to sleep but to keep awake for the day and ensure we didn't undo our body clock adjustments we had achieved in San Francisco. We clambered over one another and valiantly managed to find things in our suitcases to dress more warmly so we could head out and find some breakfast. We headed out the foyer and still got a shock from the cold. Despite putting on most of what I had to keep warm, my face, my arms, my legs, my hands, my neck - most things felt painfully cold. ...
... nearby buildings. John hesitated, then stepped onto the glass, walking over each pane but Rhianwyn stood frozen, not wanting to get within 3 feet of the glass. Finally, summoning all her strength she stepped gingerly onto the glass, never looking down and hoping that the toddlers happily jumping up and down on the inch thick surface would not dislodge it! It was a brief visit to Canada , in the middle of winter, but so worth ...
... elevator down and walked through the tunnel to get to the observation deck. You could feel the rumble of the water through the walls. The view was unbelievable. We were so close and you got to see the edge of the falls. We stood and watched for a while then went back through and took the other tunnel which had two look out arches where the water was pouring past. It was really cool to see. We then went back out to the deck to see the front again ...
... River cruise and stopping at the magnificent floral clock. After arriving at the end of the tour we were given an hour for free time to swim around at the bottom of the falls or time for walking the river track. It was time to finish the tour and I hoped in the bus to take me back to my hotel. On the bus ride I was feeling very sick from going round all the turn but fortunately I didn't throw up until I got back to my room, there I threw up, then lay on my bed for the rest of the ...
Went for a stroll, no backpack, the area around Dundas Sq was heaving with a free rock concert getting going for the Pride festival... apparently there was also a huge fireworks display which we missed..
Back to Eaton center for a bight to eat and an early night..
Flight was not till 13:45 but herself wanted an early start...
