We can't say enough about the Keefer Mansion and the staff... We truly had the most romantic night of our lives getting Married at Keefer! My husband and I had gone to many venues for our up and coming wedding. Nothing was feeling right. It was a second marriage for both of us and we had a combined 4 boys.... More

The Keefer is so popular they need more staff. The staff are excellent and knowledgeable but there needs to be more of them. The restaurant food is very high quality and local. Rooms are lovely. The mattress in our room could be replaced as it was pretty soft. The location and building are spectacular. Very special. Come here expecting to... More

My husband and I booked the Wine Dine and Rest package once again for our anniversary. We stayed in room 305 this time, and were quite happy with the room. The bed was high, the windows were plenty (especially in the bathroom) and the exposed brick gave both rooms quite a lovely look. I actually preferred this suite to the... More

The Keefer Inn was such a disappointment. I thought it was "world renowned dining"Everything was bland and tasted the same. The pictures looked soo good on the internet, but didn`t live up to the hype. My bf and I had a better meal at the Keg- a chain restaurant!!! The service was abyssmal and the place was like a ghosttown.... More

We recently stayed at the Keefer Mansion and had both dinner and breakfast there. It was fabulous -- possibly the best food we have had in the last 12 months. Both the beet salad and the homemade pasta appetizers were delicious. The creme brulee was perfect! The only tiny thing I could find to complain about what a spelling mistake... More

Our Niagara area friends told us this was one of the best places to eat in the region, so this is where we took them to dinner. What a disappointment! Sunday evening and we were the only dinner guests, which may explain why the menu was so mundane. A tired and tasteless asparagus soup was followed by a main dish... More

Stayed for one weekend, although I cannot remember the room name, it was on the second floor....very "boutiquey"!! loved the romantic elegance, if I could find one thing that wasn't great, it would be that none of the rooms available had a king sized bed, Other than that- wonderful!

My daughter and I stayed at the Inn for 2 nights and where overwhelmed by the beauty and charm of this building. The staff were all wonderful, the breakfast was delicious and fresh. The rooms are beautifully decorated - well worth the trip just to see this beautifully restored Inn.

“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.”
