This was one of the loveliest stays I've had in a long time. My mother and sister and I chose the Girls' Getaway package and it was all we could hope for and more. The hotel is next to the harbour and about a 10 min walk to town centre, and there is also a very accommodating free shuttle service....

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed our “Just Us Gals” getaway package and appreciated our quaint and convenient location down by the Harbour and yet still close to the main attractions.

I have heard a lot of great things about this hotel through Trip advisor. I am so happy that I was able to experience all the wonderful comments first hand. You cannot even begin to imagine how everything was absolutely so perfect there! First off, the grounds, and the hotel itself. Small (meaning, not a huge hotel feel), quaint, and...

I recently stayed at Harbour House for the first time. I have stayed in several other hotels in Niagara on the Lake, and have always had a good experience. However, the few days I stayed here were some of my best yet! The room was immaculate and my friends and I were treated like royalty. The staff are friendly and...

Always an exceptional visit when we stay here. The size of the hotel lends itself to a very friendly and personal experience. The staff is always there to help out and share their knowledge of the area, as well as being utterly accommodating in every way. The "happy hour" local wine sampling is a nice way to get to meet...

We went to Harbour House for a weekend getaway in February. What a fantastic experience! The room was wonderful, the wine tasting and breakfast were amazing! We had a very romantic dinner at the Charles Inn and the shuttle service to and from the restaurant was very much appreciated on the cold winter night! Larissa at Harbour House was absolutely...

The hotel is gorgeous, the location is beautiful and staff are even better! I recently proposed at the Harbour and couldn't have done it without the help of their staff. Amazing attention to detail and time spent on my needs. We had a beautiful room with a very nice fire place and jacuzzi. The rooms are great, the "happy hour"...

We just returned from spending a night at this gem of a hotel and we loved every minute of our stay.
