My boyfriend and I just returned from a relaxing 2 day stay at the Harbour House Hotel. After visiting Niagara Falls last year and staying at the Falls and just happening upon the adorable little town of Niagara on the Lake last year quite by accident we knew we wanted to return and stay here. After researching hotels in the area the reviews of Harbour House were so good we had to try it and I must say our visit did not disappoint! We booked the Whirlwind of Wine 2 day package and stayed in a Premium Room. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating. When we checked in they provided us with an envelope that explained our package including our dinner reservation that night and arrangements for our wine tour/tasting the following day. After they showed us where breakfast would be served etc. we were taken up to our room and showed how to use the jacuzzi and fireplace. When we got to our room we instantly felt the stress of our long drive disappear, it was just just so relaxing and inviting, right down to a little bag of cookies waiting for us in the room. They take care of all of the details, robes in your room, a cozy blanket on the chair, cookies, even a little rubber duck sitting by the bathtub :) After a little rest we went down to the lobby to partake in the wine and cheese sampling and we met some of the hotels other guests.
We enjoyed dinner at the Charles Inn our first night (I will be posting a nice review for our time spent there too) we took advantage of the complimentary shuttle service that they provide to take us to and from dinner and our driver showed us around a bit a gave us a little history of the town.
The next day we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the conservatory and we were picked up from the hotel lobby to go on our wine tour and returned to enjoy more wine and cheese in the lobby at 4:00 PM.
The hotel is in a great location and we had a view of the river from our room. It is about 5 minute walk up into town and once we parked our car upon arrival we didn't use it again until we checked out.
I cannit wait to return again next year as we plan to make this an annual trip, my only hope is that we can stay for 3 days instead of just 2 - it just went by too fast!!
