The Prince of Wales Hotel: Fall Getaway to Niagara-On-The-Lake
Take a stroll along Picton Street in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake and you can’t help but notice the elegant architecture of The Prince of Wales Hotel. Built in the mid-1800’s, this four-diamond heritage hotel maintains its original charm while offering the best in modern comforts. The Prince of Wales Hotel has changed its name several times throughout history and maintains its current name in honor of George V and Queen Mary’s visit in 1901 where they were guests.
The Victorian-style guest rooms feature Tiffany lamps, traditional brocade curtains, and antique furnishings. Amenities include an indoor pool, whirlpool and The Secret Garden Spa. There’s even a convenient shuttle bus if you want to travel between the Vintage Hotels’ sister properties.
Fall Getaway Package
We stayed at The Prince of Wales Hotel on a Fall getaway package that included a 1-night stay in a deluxe room, dinner for two, a bottle of wine, wine tasting passes at Konzelmann Estate Winery, tour & tasting passes to Chocolate FX Factory, and full breakfast for two. As you can tell from the list of all the things that were included, this deal was a steal! Check out current deals at The Prince of Wales Hotel here.

The Prince of Wales Hotel Deluxe Room
Our Deluxe Room came with a gas fireplace and balcony. Individual touches included a complimentary plate of fruit, Vintage Hotels chocolates, and a bottle of red wine. The guest room was truly an intimate hideaway, especially once you slip on a fluffy bathrobe and perch in front of the fireplace!
Dinner at The Cannery Restaurant
The dinner vouchers were valid at any restaurant onsite at any one of the Vintage Hotels’ properties that allowed you to order a 3-course meal from the regular a-la-carte menu. We chose Pillar & Post’s four-diamond, The Cannery Restaurant.
I immediately fell in love with the rustic farmhouse decor at The Cannery Restaurant, which had exposed dark wood beams, and a wood-burning fireplace. With candles lit up on every table, the ambiance was so cozy and romantic!
For starters, we had the Taster Platter of Crab Cake, Poached Pear, Cambozola Bruchetta and Twice Baked Goat Cheese and Pistachio Soufflé. For mains, we had Slow Roasted Prime Rib and Loaded Beef Tenderloin. The dishes highlighted local Niagara-on-the-Lake ingredients and the portions were generous.
Breakfast at Noble Restaurant
The next morning, we had a full breakfast for two at The Prince of Wales Hotel’s flagship restaurant, Noble. The light-filled space made for a delightful breakfast experience.
There is so much to do around the Niagara-on-the-Lake region. Read about visiting local wineries here. We only had enough time to visit Konzelmann Estate Winery, but not the Chocolate FX Factory this time around. However, the chocolate factory passes do not expire so we’re fine to use them in the future. We had to leave enough time for a state-side detour to Buffalo for some shopping fun! On our way to Rainbow Bridge, we passed by Queenston Heights and took in the Fall foliage along Niagara Parkway.
I can’t believe that we scored such an amazing value on the Fall Getaway package to The Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake! I would highly recommend this package and I hope to find a similar deal next Fall.
