Keefer Mansion has quite a history and supposedly is haunted, although we did not see any ghosts. The service is wonderful and the food awesome. Upon arrival we were shown our rooms and served ice water with lemon and a tray of treats from the Chef. Relaxed on the porch for a few hours and then we were served an...

We have just returned from a weekend at our former favorite getaway spot. W,e had stayed at the Keefer twice before ( actually got engaged there) so it did hold a special place in our heart which makes writing this review all the more disturbing. We booked the wine pairing for our second nights stay and that's when it all...

Unfortunately our staff needed to follow Ontario AGCO rules and stopped serving alcohol to this party....which of course upended the wine pairing. We strive for excellence and wonderful guest experiences but everyone needs to be safe and respectful. I am sorry to write this, but there are two sides to this story.

Beautiful building, antiques, decorations, artwork with lovely rooms, COMFORTABLE beds, nice covered porch overlooking beautiful yard and friendly, helpful staff. Lots of history in every room and, although possibly haunted, we didn't hear any bumps in the night. Breakfast was good but not up to other b&b's. Go back for sure.

This was our second visit to keefer mansion. The first time we stayed in a room on the top level which was amazing. I don't think that level is available anymore. However, the current stay was great either way. Absolutely love the old ambiance that decor provides. The B&B is in a quiet town, perfect for wining down. We enjoyed...

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying for one Friday night to do some biking around Niagara on Saturday. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. Granted staying in downtown Thorold is not high on everyone's list when coming to Niagara but you should consider the Keefer Mansion as a great option. You can book for just...

My husband and I went to Keefer for a 9 course tasting menu to celebrate his job and we were delighted as how amazing it truly was.

We had about a dozen people looking for an 'end-of-year appreciation dinner' and the Keefer Mansion was the perfect spot. The venue is simply stunning, everyone felt like royalty. Chef Erik prepared a great meal to suit everyone's needs. Highly recommended for a unique and memorable event.

The staff at Keefer make your stay exemplary. The young manager and his girlfriend Tia made our stay- they were so kind, so well-informed, so customer focused and on the ball. The housekeeping staff were also very kind indeed and full of wonderful stories about the history of the place and its (friendly!) ghosts- though of course we didn't sense...

“No elevator, so third floor rooms are a longer climb. Staircase between second and third floor is narrower that between first and second. Pictures and descriptions of the rooms are provided on the web site. The rooms with poster beds are the larger rooms. All bedrooms have modern bathrooms.”
