Pillar and Post Inn

Niagara on the Lake, Niagara

The hotel

One of Canada’s finest country inns, the Pillar and Post was built in the late 1890s. Since then, it has been lovingly transformed into an AAA Four-Diamond hotel, oozing with charm and elegance. Guest rooms are very well equipped, not only with modern amenities but also delightful contemporary, comfortable furnishings. The sunlight streams in through skylights and there are beautiful terracotta floors throughout. A range of superb amenities include an outdoor swimming pool to splash about in or a heated indoor pool if the weather’s cooler. There’s also a fitness centre with sauna and steam room but the real star of the show is 100 Fountain Spa, perhaps the best in North America. A haven of wellness and relaxation, you can treat yourself to a wine tasting of a different sort here! Harnessing the powerful antioxidant nature of grapes and grape seed extract, your Head to Toe Wine Taster includes a Vinotherapy Facial, a Purple Feet Pedicure and ends with a Vinotherapy Wellness Wrap — pure and utter bliss! Feeling completely rejuvenated, float along to Vintages Wine Bar and Lounge to feast on classic pub fare and local wines. For something a little more substantial, the Cannery Restaurant serves gorgeous steaks and seafood along with pizzas fresh from a brick oven.

We stayed Sunday to Monday and loved the vintage inspired hotel. The meal was unbelievable and Server David gave top notch service. The room was clean and the gardens & pool so beautiful. Also walking or biking distance to everything!!!

We just spent three nights at the Pillar and Post for a birthday celebration. Took advantage of the Sun/Mon/Tue special - upgraded room and dinner included. The room was beautiful (with softest, fluffiest robes I've seen anywhere!), the dining was amazing (must haves - the short ribs and the salmon) and the staff were great. We had beauiful weather, so spent time lazing around the outdoor pool (heated to a perfect temperature) sipping cocktails. NOTL was busy on Sunday but quiet on Monday and Tuesday. Would also recommend lunch at Jackson Triggs and Strewn wineries. Also recommend renting bikes from Zoom and riding on the path along the river between NOTL and Niagara Falls. A fantastic getaway - the Pillar and Post was the perfect destination. Read less

Fantastic stay here! Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, very good drinks at the lounge! Very cosy room, super comfortable king size bed. Came here to celebrate our anniversary with another couple also celebrating, well worth the stay.

We were treated so wonderful from the moment we checked in. They had a bottle of champagne waiting for us with a note. The front desk also hand delivered chocolates. I would highly recommend staying here
