We have stayed at the Harbour House about six times and each visit has been consistently enjoyable. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and the included breakfast is delicious! The staff are friendly and helpful and we look forward to our next visit!

Friendly and outgoing staff made our stay a memorable one. The reviews were accurate. Very clean room with lots of personal touches. The most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. Great location...walking distance to all that NOTL offers. Fantastic breakfast with lots of healthy choices. Will be back again for sure. Best stay-cation we've had!

From the moment we walked in, we felt relaxed! The décor, the attentive service, the amenities and the beautiful rooms all added to an incredibly memorable evening! Dinner at the Charles Inn, their sister property was the perfect compliment to our stay...and one the most incredible meals we've ever had!

We stay at the sister resort, the Shaw Club, but always come to Harbor House for breakfast at least once. High quality buffet breakfast, hot and cold. Lovely setting. Quiet (in the off season, anyway). Conveniently located in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Our third stay at this boutique hotel and the standards never vary - always magnificent. From excellent staff, beautiful rooms, afternoon wine tasting, European breakfasts and private car shuttle to and from restaurants in Niagara-on-the-lake - what more could you ask for.
