Wonderful service at this small boutique hotel in NOTL. Beautifully appointed rooms and very comfortable bed. We did, however, find the room to be rather dark as the interior lighting was minimal. During the day it was quite dark in the room and at night it was impossible to read unless sitting in the bed and using the reading lamps....

We recently returned from a 4 day break in Niagra on the Lake where we were privileged to stay at the Harbour House. This is a small boutique style Inn, with beautifully appointed rooms, each with its own fireplace, and a cosy lounge where they serve cheese and wine each evening. The personnel are warm, friendly, smiling and so helpfu.l...

My husband and I just returned from a two-night stay at the Harbour House. We made late plans to celebrate our 22nd anniversary, which this year fell on a Saturday, so we ended up booking for Sunday and Monday, as the hotel was fully booked for Saturday. It was worth the wait. I found the hotel using google which led...

Service was great. They reserved restaurants and a wine tour for us months in advance. They only serve breakfast and it was a small but more than adequate buffet which is included in the price of the room. Rooms were very large and clean. The hotel is quaint and lovely. A little pricey but worth it. I would not hesitate...

My husband and I spent the weekend of Sept. 6-8th 2013 at the Harbour House for our 30th anniversary.

Breakfast was great! The location is perfect to walk by...

We went here to celebrate a speacial occasion and had a really great time. The atmosphere was laid back but efficient - it was non intrusive but not impersonal. We took a map from the front desk and walked the wine trail. They also helped set up dinner at the Charles Inn for us - which was also great. The...

We stayed here for 3 nights while going to plays at the Shaw Festival and visiting wineries. We liked this hotel and the breakfast was great. Would likely stay there again.

Niagara-on-the-Lake has a whole host of quaint venues in which to rest one's body. However, one such place not to be missed is the Harbour House Inn on Melville Street. This unassuming 30 room inn offers pleasantries from check-in to check-out. The staff is ever gracious and accommodating; the rooms filled with luxurious amenities (whirlpool bath, gas fireplace, chaise lounge);...
