“Excellent food and service, beautiful rooms and view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary at Riverbend and had a wonderful time!! The food and service was excellent. The rooms were classy, clean and spacious. The property overlooks its own vineyards and we couldn't ask for a more beautiful spot to celebrate our anniversary. We will definitely be back soon!!

When the Wiens family began renovating an historic home overlooking a vineyard and located on the serene River Road to NOL, we were intrigued. The owners allowed previews and we immediately booked an incredible suite. The decor of each room is impeccable and this suite has a balcony overlooking their vineyard and gardens. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining and an upscale menu. I noticed the bread pudding on the menu and called at the curtain from the Festival Theater to find it hot and awaiting me in the strikingly beautiful lounge. Wine Flights are offered and include their own wines. This is a unique and special place to celebrate life's moments not to be forgotten.

We booked a room at Riverbend - please note we had stayed here many times in the past - but new ownership has come and and the place is run down and the noise is like that from a frat house. Our room had a musty mouldy smell - and we could not get either the fan or ac to work. We called down and the on site repairmen could not fix it. We had chosen this room as it the quiet (normally) and overlooks the gardens. I brought this to the mgr on site ( Arlene) and was
told that she could not be responsible for rooms!!

Riverbend has become run down and low class. It use to sell itself and elegant and classy. It now should sell itself as a meeting grounds for frat houses. Noisy, smelly and a mgmt team that could not care less.

Will never return to this place - do yourself a favour - stay somewhere where they actually want your business.

Who evers owns this place - get a new mgmt team in place.

We spent the night at the Riverbend Inn in Niagara. The room was great, with the open vineyard making the perfect scenery. We had dinner and breakfast there and the food was very good. It made for a very memorable weekend.

We loved the classy mansion with wonderful, gigantic chandeliers, classic old woodwork, spacious room and views of the Niagara Parkway and the vineyards. Dinner was excellent and service friendly and efficient. Both breakfasts were attractive and tasty. We found all staff to be cheerful and helpful--made us feel right at home. We'll be back. A nice gift to see us on our way was appreciated too.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony overlooking the Niagara Parkway.

A special location away from the crowds of tourists downtown NOTL . We stayed in a beautifully proportioned and spotless room overlooking vineyards & the Niagara Parkway (Queenston direction).
The food was very good, and although I felt they could use extra dinning room staff
the price was reasonable. Very comfortable, we would definitely like to stay again.

My sister & I spent 2 nights at Riverbend Inn! Celebrating our birthday! We found the Inn a
wonderful experience, both the accomadations & their restaurant!
Our room was on the third floor. It had a collection of beautiful antiques with a fireplace. A
comfortable large King size bed.Chocolates were a nice touch! The room was airy, bright,
with high ceilings, with a beautiful view of the vineyards & countryside. The bathroom was
clean and large. A large sofa provided room to lounge or watch TV. You had your own
individual climate control. Lots of cupboard space for belongings. Everything was spotless!

The Restaurant in the Inn served delicious original dishes, I had the special of the night
Lamb sirloin with chive & parsley polenta & delicate vegetables presented artisticly!
It was superb the best lamb,tender delectable. The crabcake was a delightful starter,
salads were too! To finish off with Creme Brule or Banana Bread
Pudding a perfect end to a wonderful experience.
And with all these delights the service was excellent! Professional
and attentive for all meals. Breakfast was enjoyable and a great start to the day.
Great view from the dinning room too.

We couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate. We highly recommend Riverbend Inn.
We will be returning on our next visit to Niagara on the Lake & the Shaw.
Please go and enjoy! Mary-Lou & Terry

Room Tip: The Inn has a selection of many rooms! Ours was lovely with a king size bed on the third floor. For...
