The Queen's Landing is located right on the marina in Niagara-on-the-Lake, making it a pleasant hotel to stop by for lunch on the outdoor terrace in the summer. A renovated stately home, the hotel looks impressive from the outside, but the dated and garish décor throughout its interiors didn't do it for us. The hotel's clientele consist mainly of a crowd of retired guests, so although the guests are lovely, younger guests might prefer somewhere a little livelier and more contemporary in its décor.

    Location 8.65 /10

    The hotel is located close to the Niagara-on-the-Lake village, just at its entrance. If you are going to be attending the Bernard Shaw Festival in October, the hotel isn't too far from the theatre. Niagara-on-the-Lake has a fresh summery and holiday atmosphere and is well worth stopping by for a night or if you like the sound of touring the wine region and you are going up to the Falls as it is extremely picturesque and relaxed. You will be spoilt for choice in Niagara-on-the-Lake as there are hundreds of vineyards to stop at for wine tastings and every single one has its own distinct feel and practices.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are 142 rooms split into four categories: Traditional, Deluxe, Premium and Suites. The rooms are all decorated in a similar style that is slightly more garish than the rest of the hotel, but they are spacious. The rooms have thick blue carpets with thick orange drapes to match the faux suede headboard. The dark varnished mahogany furniture adds a dull ambience to an otherwise fairly pleasant space. Most rooms have cosy king size beds with quality white crisp linen. Some rooms have an extra (sofa) bed, which is handy if you are staying here with young children. All rooms have a flat-screen television. Other rooms have fireplaces, an attempt to add a cosy feel to the rooms. The bathrooms either have baths or showers.

    Otherwise there is Wi-Fi internet access in the rooms, but this comes at a charge. Wi-Fi is however complimentary in the lobby.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The hotel is a large three-floor renovated Georgian mansion complete with large white columns on either side of the front entrance and its own roundabout in the drive. The gardens of the hotel are the best part of it, especially in the summer, when guests can really make the most of the outdoor terrace that lines the marina and lake behind the hotel. Inside, the hotel has been recently renovated and is fairly smart if you like a chintzy dated style. Despite the décor, the mansion looks spick and span, however the cardboard point of sale displays throughout the hotel make it look cheap.

    The thick red carpets throughout the hotel and flowery curtains to match were a little too much for us. In terms of facilities, the hotel is well-equipped. It has a large restaurant - which reminded us of a slightly upmarket residential home dining room - as well as a bar area, which, with its lime green faux leather bar stools, is a more modern addition. Otherwise there is a good size gym (with more of that garish red carpet), a full indoor pool backed by floor-to-ceiling windows and a quaint little leafy outdoor terrace - there is no spa onsite, but there is sauna, which is complimentary for guests. The library room, a cosy Georgian living room with a fireplace, is the ideal place to take refuge from the rest of the hotel's bad taste interiors.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The main restaurant, or dining hall, is located to the back of the hotel on several levels. The hall reminded us of a residential home canteen or an old-fashion cruise boat's restaurant at best. Carpeted and crammed full of tables, the space isn't the most pleasant. Cheesy music plays over the speakers, which took us right back to the days we used to watch Dynasty on television! The décor was enough, we thought. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here. However, its outdoor seating on the terrace that lines the marina overlooks the lake, which is very pleasant during the summer.

    Otherwise for a little bit more of a contemporary experience, and for sport fans, the hotel bar just next door to the restaurant serves light bites and pints while showing the latest sport on its television screens above the British pub style bar.

      The Charles Inn is our favourite hotel in the entire Niagara 'region'. It won our hearts with its unbeatable authentic Canadian-meets-British Empire charm, which we found simply irresistible. Located on the other side of Niagara-on-the-Lake, the hotel, that looks more like a large house, sits in a lovely little garden that lines a golf course. Passing by, it is easy to imagine the haunting tale of this house's history. No longer spooky, despite its soul living on through its quirky architecture, walking into the Charles Inn is like coming home (if you were part of an aristocratic family holidaying at its summer house that is). The perfect place for a romantic break with your other half, or even on your own - we were convinced anyway!

      A cute modern and very popular little inn located right in Niagara's wine country and not far from Niagara-on-the-Lake village, is the perfect place to stay at if you are travelling with a family or as a group of friends; it is even a great option if you are looking to have a romantic getaway with your other half. The Pillar and Post is also one of the fullest hotels when it comes to facilities as it has a lovely spa, a beautiful outdoor pool and a lively medieval restaurant that is extremely popular with the locals.

      The Shaw Club is a practical and attractive contemporary boutique hotel in the small village of Niagara-on-the-Lake that sits on the banks of Lake Ontario. The hotel is located just across the road from The Shaw Theatre, where it gets its name from. It might not have all the facilities a five start hotel has to offer, but in terms of atmosphere and service, it scored very highly with us. The hotel is ideal if you are going to be exploring the wine country or attending the Shaw Festival in October and if you are going to be driving up to Niagara Falls. The hotel is perfect for a young clientele that is fond of clean lines and neutral tones in terms of décor.

      If you thought The Queen's Landing was chintzy, then you've got another think coming with The Prince of Wales! Giving a whole new meaning to kitsch, the hotel's garish interiors are a mix of Italian Renaissance and Victorian luxury, which is proving very popular with an older crowd of guests. The flagship property for Vintage Inn Hotels, it sits in prime location in Niagara-on-the-Lake village. With a wraparound porch and its name hanging in big gold lettering, you won't be able to miss it. The perfect place to stay if you like Georgian hotels, as although the interiors are garish, the rooms are harmonious when it comes to décor.

      The charming Harbour House was one of our favourite hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Sitting low down a slight hill almost right on the banks of Lake Ontario, the hotel might not look like much from the images we have, but it was difficult to capture the hotel's warmth and crisp-looking rooms. We felt right at home straight away, especially due the delightful staff that is happy to go out of their way to help guests. A quaint board house with spacious rooms and a soothing atmosphere, the Harbour House is a great haven of peace and tranquillity to use as a base to explore the area from. Ideal for a clientele favouring smart, neat hotels with an authentic charm and excellent service.
