We went, party of 4, for Mother's day High Tea. We were seated in a rear function room. Negative, little sunlight and no view of the park/flowers on the street. Positive, no one staring at me drinking my cuppa. The tea is loose. Most selections are flowered which is not to my liking. Others were happy. One in the party... More

My daughters took me here for Mother's Day and it was a nice experience. The decor is charming, the tea selection is excellent and the food served was very good. Service was polite and good, but we had to remind the server to get our second pot of tea after 15 minutes. All in all a pleasant experience, but I... More

We actually made reservations for the candle light evening tea. This is a MUST. It was truly incredible. Samantha was not only beyond helpful, but she made the experience perfect. She not only was very knowledgeable and helpful, but she also was very personable and made us feel truly at home. The tea was to die for (try the Niagara... More

The Drawing Room provides the perfect environment in which to relax after a day exploring the wine country of the Niagara region. My wife and I enjoyed a beautifully presented and delicious high tea before the theater. The decor is a bit faded but still retains the Elegance of an earlier and more genteel age.

I went with a group of family and friends to celebrate my sisters 20th birthday. My mom had called a month and a half prior to us going and made a reservation for high tea, she told them the reservation was for 12 people and there were no issues making the reservation. When we arrived (all dolled up for the... More

If you want to go for High Tea this is the best one I have ever been to. The room is lovely nicely decorated and the serving size of the high tea is more than usual. The sandwiches and desserts were lovely and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend if you are in Niagara on the lake to try... More

We have been to Niagara on the Lake several times. It is one of our favorite places for a getaway. However, this was out first time trying the Traditional Tea at Prince of Wales. We were glad that it is offered at what many Americans consider to be "brunch" or Lunch time. It was a wonderful experience. The table arrangements... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our high tea at The Prince of Wales. The tea was delicious and the choice of food was nice. The scones were even warm! Sandwiches, cookies, cup cakes and cream puffs were definitely enjoyed. Niagara on the Lake is a lovely spot and the hotel itself is so interesting. We just went for tea but it was worth... More

While visiting Niagara on the Lake, we decided to try Afternoon Tea at the Drawing Room. This was our first time experiencing a traditional tea. What a wonderful delight! They present you with a case of about 20 different teas to smell. Each person selects their own tea which is served in individuals pots. We started with a cheese and... More
