Queen’s Landing, Niagara-on-the-Lake
Queen’s Landing is another Vintage Hotels property in Niagara-on-the-Lake which is perfect for couples wanting a romantic winter getaway near Toronto. The Georgian-style manor opened only in 1990 but its architecture reflects the time period when Loyalists began to arrive in Upper Canada from the American colonies.
The hotel has a lovely waterfront location overlooking the scenic Niagara River and Lake Ontario and I love that it is just a short walk from Niagara-on-the-Lake’s main street shops and boutiques.
Queen’s Landing has 140 elegant guest rooms and suites that are both luxurious and comfortable with many contemporary amenities including plush hypoallergenic duvets. Many of the rooms also have fireplaces which are ideal for cozy winter nights.Find the best deal, compare prices, and read what other travelers have to say at Tripadvisor
