My second visit for Afternoon Tea and once again it was excellent, our hostess Olivia was attentive and very personable, the surroundings add to the ambiance and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We have had high tea at Niagara on the Lake from time to time. We have our expectations, but this time we were disappointed. The selection of teas was awesome and it came steeped just right. The scone was delicious and was supposed to be warm. It wasn't. The small sandwiches were of less expensive variety than we have had... More

I had been looking forward to this for about a month, when we booked our table, along with our hotel stay. The Drawing Room was a huge disappointment. While the surroundings are gorgeous, and the ambience is lovely, ... the food and beverages leave a LOT to be desired. I've had better meals at a local bake shop where I... More

After staying the night in this hotel, we decided to have breakfast in the drawing room. The room had a deal, but this was still very pricey for what was served. The food was okay, nicely displayed, great waitresses, very friendly, the view from the table overlooked the park so everything was delightful, but not worth the price.

I was there on Jan 1, 2016 to celebrate my birthday and did not have a good experience. I wrote a review on TripAdvisor about that day. There were not enough staff, and a few other things combined. On Jan 1, 2017, we decided to return and give them another chance. I reserved my table on OpenTable and made a... More

While pricey at $35, the tea, sandwiches, desserts, and surroundings were lovely. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Certainly worth a visit if in Niagara.

Booked a time for afternoon tea on a slow mid-week day before Christmas and the Drawing Room was still full. You choose your tea and you are brought an entire pot of it along with a selection of sandwiches and sweets. I picked the Heavenly Cream tea and it was very good. Service was top notch and having the tea... More
