This hotel was wonderful! Everything from the service to the room, cleanliness, and food was above par! My hubby and I stayed in room 203, and we enjoyed the view, space and decor. It was also really quiet, so we slept well! And the best part? We hardly used out car! The reception helped us book restaurants, and we had... More

The staff is discretely attentive...just what we were looking for...to be noticed when needed but invisible most of the time. If you are looking for someplace to take that someone special, this is it! LOVE IT- would return in a heartbeat.

We booked this at the last minute, and were lucky it was outside of festival season so were able to get one of their two pet-friendly rooms. We don't usually take our golden with us as she's too big for many pet-friendly hotels. We felt right at home, everyone including the other guests were so friendly. The room was perfect... More

This was our second visit to Harbour House. We spent two nights for our honeymoon. In addition to having the honeymoon suite which was very nice, we also ordered sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries the first day and a cheese tray the second day. We were too late returning from our journeys to enjoy the cheese tray so they packed... More

We were lucky enough to spend two nights at the Harbour House while visiting the Niagara area and only wish it could have been longer. The house is lovely and the room we had was perfect. It was roomy with a view over the marina and despite the weather being inclement for much of our stay the view was fabulous.... More

We usually travel to NOTL twice a year and stay at the Harbour House. Recently we have seen some changes that are not to the previous high level of expectations. The carpet in the room is showing its age, towels were replaced with ones that were very scratchy. It felt like we were drying off with sandpaper. It is very... More

Thank you for your review. I will re look at the towels that are in circulation; we have upgraded to a higher level towel; this may need some investigating. Our staff here are wonderful and I always enjoy reading they did such a great job. More
