The hotel is gorgeous, the location is beautiful and staff are even better! I recently proposed at the Harbour and couldn't have done it without the help of their staff. Amazing attention to detail and time spent on my needs. We had a beautiful room with a very nice fire place and jacuzzi. The rooms are great, the "happy hour"...

We just returned from spending a night at this gem of a hotel and we loved every minute of our stay.

We stayed for the first time over a long weekend in February. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and the room was excellent. The fireplace worked and the room was spacious.

We stayed for two days at the Harbour House Hotel and were not disappointed. Our main objective was to see the fall in winter and we felt that staying in Niagara on the Lake was a much better option as we do not care very much for the Las Vegas aspect of Niagara Falls. Our room (a superior room) was...
