My aunt, cousin, sister and I have been having Afternoon Tea at the Prince of Wales once a year for the past 12 years. It's a wonderful time for us to sit, catch up and enjoy ourselves in a beautiful setting. The scones are amazing and we look forward to them.

I was so happy with our service right from the first time I interacted with Samantha. She was a delight. The weather was extremely bad that night and so I was a few min late as well my daughter was held up by the bridge over the Welland canal. I was concerned because we had the last appointment of 530. She assured us that she could certainly take care of us and went to set up a table by the window just as we had requested. Because of the time of day she recommended we try the cheese tray. It was a nice addition . The scones as always were the best. We have been there before but the tea tray of sandwiches and treats seemed to be even more appealing. Great variety and despite thinking with the cheese tray we wouldn't finish everything but we did! After 5 cups of tea and a relaxing 2 hours we managed to polish everything off. We left so relaxed . Our interaction with Samantha was great. Very attentive and just knows how to serve clients well.

Usually have bang on service. I felt a little neglected by wait staff. Even though a tea, easy to serve, the waitress should always have an eye on table. Waited 20 minutes to have table cleared when it was very noticeable we were finished. Regrettably, I had to wave a bus girl down.

I have been there many times before for tea. The service was very good on each other occasion.

Don’t worry, I will be back perhaps to the Churchill lounge though.

This visit was the second for us at the Drawing Room for afternoon tea. It did not disappoint the first time and still exceeded our expectations this time around. This has become somewhat of a tradition for us when we stay at one of the Vintage Hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake. From our enjoyment from this visit, it will continue to be a tradition for us during our stay in the area.

Beautiful setting. Christmas decorations are up, very tastefully done. Very classy, wonderful serving staff.
Went with a good friend for their 'tea for two' special which only occurs in November and you have to book quickly, this is very popular. The teas are delicious. This time I tried the Niagara Fields tea, special to this area. I think it will be my favourite tea from now on.

We always enjoy taking advantage of the two for one high tea offered by the Prince Of Wales hotel in Niagara on the Lake. The ambience is beautiful. The service was excellent and so professional. There were many tea sandwich choices and tempting desserts and scones with cream and jam. I would highly recommend it, not only at two for one price, but any time of year. My sister and I took our mom and aunt. They felt regal and spoiled!

The Tea has definitely improved over our last visit a few years ago; the sandwiches were creative and generous. The staff were attentive to our needs and our server, who I believe was named Brooke, was extremely polite. The selection of tea, made our choice very difficult.

As we are 4 seniors we found that being seated on the sofa and two chairs in the 'hallway' was not comfortable on our backs and conversation was not easy.

I always love going for high tea at The Prince of Wales - it’s the best of the ones i’ve been to. The food is wonderful and portions are good sized. We had the cheese platter in addition to our afternoon tea, which was very generous. We ate too much of the cheese platter and had to take most of the tea items home. The scones are amazing with the Devonshire cream and strawberry jam. Looking forward to our next visit!

My 4 sisters and I took my 80 yr old mother here to celebrate her birthday and to make it a very
special memory for her. She was the daughter of an English mother and Irish father and had memories
of Afternoon teas with her grandparents. Our host was super friendly and very helpful about what tea would be best for our mother. We all had the Traditional Afternoon Tea and were all blown
away with the choices of teas and the delicacies given on our visit. My mother loved the individual teapots and tea cups. We all had a great time together here (as it doesn't happen much since we all live so far away) and we had a good conversation for an unlimited amount of time as we relaxed and enjoyed each others company. This experience will be remembered for a long long time to come. Thank you so much.
