If you are looking for a small personal touch Inn for a nice get-away, this is a place to check out. This was our second visit, first to celebrate our 25th and this time with some other couples to tour the area.

My wife and I really liked this place, staff was super friendly and took their time to talk to us and tell us the activities around the area. The place was very clean, well put together and had the TV on with holiday music upon arrival. A nice touch. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is...

We planned an overnight visit to the Niagara region, and stayed at the Harbour House Hotel. We explained that we were two friends, and they set up the room with two twin beds - nice!

This hotel was wonderful! Everything from the service to the room, cleanliness, and food was above par! My hubby and I stayed in room 203, and we enjoyed the view, space and decor.

The staff is discretely attentive...just what we were looking for...to be noticed when needed but invisible most of the time. If you are looking for someplace to take that someone special, this is it! LOVE IT- would return in a heartbeat.

Thank you for your review. Your experience sounds like many of our returning guest. Just enough attention from my team, but also enough space to enjoy the property on your own timeline and guidelines. Being away from home but feeling like at home.

We booked this at the last minute, and were lucky it was outside of festival season so were able to get one of their two pet-friendly rooms. We don't usually take our golden with us as she's too big for many pet-friendly hotels. We felt right at home, everyone including the other guests were so friendly. The room was perfect...

This was our second visit to Harbour House. We spent two nights for our honeymoon.
