The Harbour House is very pleasantly situated in this delightful heritage town, close to its main historic sites and also to the Shaw Festival theatres. Well appointed and excellently kept, the breakfast (included) is both delicious and varied with attentive service.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We arrived after a long day (3 hour drive to the falls, falls tour and then on to NOTL before dinner) and immediately loved Harbour House. The staff were so friendly and welcoming on check in, asked if we needed any help booking dinner (we...

While the rooms were great, walk-in shower, Jacuzzi deep tub, even a cookie in the room and other small but very thoughtful touches.... the breakfast was amazing. We had to get the recipe for the strawberry French toast that just had us coming back for more. The afternoon and evening shuttle service was great to get around to the restaurants...

We stayed here for the weekend and had a superior room (#201) which was a wonderful size with a fireplace. The only thing that was awkward about the room was a steam shower which was more work than it was worth. We found it hard to turn it off once it was on and the regular shower head didn't have...

I have stayed here several times both with family and friends. Despite there being lots of places to stay in this area, I always return as in my opinion it is "simply the best". Beautiful hotel, with impeccable rooms, service and staff. Great concierge service. Fabulous breakfast!

We were only here for one evening but wish it had been longer. Hotel is located close to the marina and walking distance to downtown. It rained the whole time, but we still walked to dinner. Our room had a fireplace and was very cozy and clean. We enjoyed the wine and cheese served in the lobby. It was very...

We stayed at Harbour House on a friend's recommendation and it totally lived up to our expectations and then some! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is a shuttle there that will take you to town and back, which was nice since it was freezing. They did a nice complementary wine and cheese tasting from 4-5pm (yay free...

I know I'm a little late on this review, but we stayed in 2008 and the hotel and the staff were simply top notch! The front desk folks were helpful, booking dinner, tours, and more. They walked us to our room to show us around, and they let us in a little earlier than expected. We had a marvelous anniversary...

Rooms are beautiful and staff are super friendly and helpful, we had a wonderful couple of days here. The only slight complain I had was the bed was a bit on the hard side but it's such a gorgeous place.

Very nice staff and hotel. The shuttle to town for dinner was great. Breakfast average. Expected to be right on the water but is about 1 block away. Overall clean and comfortable except for the nasty bathroom floor tile that by its nature never looks clean. Nice wine tasting from 4-5. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Thank John C
