“Great Memories”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

We held our parents 60th Wedding Anniversary here last weekend. We were able to use the Coach House which is next to the main Inn and Restaurant. The Coach House holds parties for I would say under 50 people. It was very cozy, and comfortable with great views of Peller Estates vineyards. Our day started with of course a great selection of local wines, h'orderves consisting of cheese and crackers, flat breads with different toppings grapes etc...Dinner started with fresh salads and then the main course where we had choice of Beef Tenderloin, Stuffed Chicken, or Salmon. We had a good cross section of people try every dish, all were very good, I personally had the Tenderloin...it was excellent, very tender, moist, and cooked to perfection. Dessert was a lovely Strawberry Shortcake, it was light and simple and used fresh Niagara berries. We also had Anniversary cake. The servers were very conscientious of our timelines and allowed us to take our time. They were both very professional and catered to our parents very well. We would highly recommend any small intimate function to look at the Riverbend Inn in Niagara On The Lake.

Room Tip: Sorry, we did not stay in any of the rooms as we are all nearby locals.

The place has some nice historical features, but it needs some attention. The balcony outside our room had a amazing view, but the railing is chipping and the wood is rotten. The balcony floor needs to be powerwashed. the wall outside is peeling so the paint chips are all over the outside balcony floor. The rug in the room has stains, I found two different items on the floor. One under a chair by fireplace and one under one of the night tables. This tells me that the room is not really cleaned with attention to detail; furniture is not moved, so what else is not done, For 333.00 for one night more is expected. There is no info in the room as to the restraunt, services available, or even where the ice machine is located. The palce has so much potential it just needs to have someone to look at detail to make it special

Room Tip: Rooms near the stairs are noisey. You hear everthing

I would like to reassure you that we are aware of the current situation with the balcony. New spindles have been ordered and all repairs will certainly be tended to in a timely manner. We have also just met with the housekeeping staff to review the procedures for servicing our guestrooms. Your feedback is appreciated and will be addressed with our team. Please know that we will continue to work hard to maintain our high standards.

This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Its about 1.5 km from downtown Niagara on the Lake. A very quiet hotel with huge rooms and very large bathrooms (with deep tubs). The prices at the Hotel restaurant were also reasonable. One piece of advice - don't stay in the ground floor rooms - as the rooms above transmit noise below. We had no problem changing to the third floor and it was fantastic.

I booked a two night stay at Riverbend Inn and Vineyard on June 2nd & 3rd. My husband and I have never been to this area before and we had heard wonderful things about Niagara on the Lake. The Inn was beautiful and did not disappoint. It has a rich history which we learned about. We felt like we had the entire Inn to ourselves. While there were other guests staying there we did not see them, except for when dining at the restaurant. The rooms had a gas fireplace and were filled with beautiful furniture. We had a corner room which looked out both the side and rear of the Inn onto the vineyards which was idyllic. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. The Inn also offered free wifi which was a nice perk! Linda, who checked us in, was wonderful and gave us great advice and coupons on touring the area wineries! While the Inn is not on the Queen Street in downtown Niagara on the Lake, I think this location is much much better.

Room Tip: Get a corner room or a room facing the rear!

The entire staff at Riverbend as well as the owner are a delight. We were married there outside on May 11 of this year.

If you are looking for a personlized wedding with class, this is the place. Our reception was for 100 people under a lovely tent and was a dream come true. Food is exceptional - cannot be classified as "wedding food"

We visited several properties in NOTL before deciding on Riverbend. There are endless choices in this area. but Riverbend is special.

Room Tip: We booked out almost every room for the wedding and I can assure you each one is as nice and as char...

We spent a short one night stay here. Riverbend is a lovely inn with fine decor. The lobby is stunning with huge chandelier. I like that the place is well kept, clean and provided comfortable amenities. The view is unbeatable if you want to stay away from the town and in the middle of the vineyard-this is the place!! Breakfast and dinner were excellent as well as the service. The only 2-3 suggestions that can add more value for us are-the bed was not comfortable as the way we like it because they top the soft mattress on the queen bed. The other thing is it would be nicer if the inn can provide slipper in the room. Also from our room balcony, (2nd floor)there are some cracked and chipped paint that you can easily noticed on the wooden balcony.
However, these are minor things compare with the wonderful experiences that we have got.
In all we love this place!! it is very chaming, the trees are so beautiful , peace of mind and the best place to get away and just relaxing....

We just spent a wonderful two days at the Riverbend and it was as good many others described
it. We were going to take a second or third floor room but settled for a corner unit with fireplace and three windows on the groung floor( that you could open). It was absolutely gorgeous being in the middle of a vineyard listening to the birds in the morning from our room. Good, couteous, professional staff and great restaurant on site, We went to one of the top restaurants in town and the one at the Riverbend can easily compare. We will certainly be back!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are terrific with lots of light and beautiful view.
