    All good except the sandwiches. Very minimal filling and dry bread! Both the white and brown (?pumpernickel) quite dry. I was really shocked. it seemed the cream cheese was scraped on and then off again. Salmon nice but again needed something else to moisten the sandwich. All other food very nice. There are many other tea rooms in nice rural villages that would be far superior. Also the tea selection was quite limited and one of our orders was either wrong or the wrong description and u unfortunately had to be sent back as someone was allergic to one of the ingredients.

    The highlight of the meal was The Drawing Room Interior. The premade sandwiches and desserts were mediocre at best. As a local who has dined at The Prince many times over 35 years this experience was disappointing @$155.00/2persons on Mother's Day. Will return to the Churchill Lounge, not The Drawing Room. Get it together guys - not everyone is a tourist....

    Beautiful building packed ful with ornate. Table against the wall by the kitchen and worker in and out with wood etc takes away from the experience along with the crash a couple of tables over. The food was ok. The tea was ok but much like I can buy in my local stores. Not what I have come to expect from Ontario high tea experience. Best feature was the server who definitely loved her job. Hostess and walk into the drawing room was not welcoming and overcrowded not with people but with stuff around the counter, tables, walls. Not the elegance I was looking forward to. Outside was gorgeous definitely a place to visit. Personally, I would skip the tea. If you really want to try it out, ensure your reservation is by the window.

    Beautiful day and experience. This is my first time since summer of 2018 when I was the only one having gluten free and it was not as good as the rest of non-gluten options my friends were having. This time we were very impressed with quality and variety. This was my husband’s first time and he was very happy with the tea and food. We ended up taking a sizable container with us for later treats. The service was excellent. Jody and Bella were very attentive and kind. Booked for our next time on May 17 to treat our Ukrainian guests coming to town. Thank you for a very special time.

Everything was excellent as usual, the service was warm, friendly and beyond amazing. The ambiance was so relaxing, the music so soothing and the food was so so good. I just loved every minute of it. Thank you for giving us such a nice experience and a beautiful memory 🌟🌟

    This was my first time at The Prince of Wales Hotel. I booked this for my mum's birthday. It was such a lovely experience. Victoria was our waitress and she was so pleasant, helpful and kind. The food was delicious and plentiful, that we had to take some home. I will definitely be back. I would absolutely recommend the high tea at The Prince of Wales Hotel.

    This is a lovely tea room! The antique decor and old world ambience is authentic, and the savory food was actually better than a very fancy tea room I’ve been to in Ireland, so that says a lot! They had a very nice selection of teas including organic herbals. My favorite- Niagara Fields. I highly recommend this place.

    I believe this is the best afternoon tea experience in Ontario! The spotless starched table clothes, the beautiful fine china, the fresh scones that you can feel coming straight from the oven...Ritz, Millcroft, ...you are good too, but Prince of Wales is actually the King.

    My girlfriends and I live locally and absolutely love coming here for high tea approximately every 2-3 months or so. The food and tea is excellent and The Drawing Room is gorgeous (so is the entire hotel). We always leave satisfied and have plenty of leftovers to take home. I highly recommend this experience to both locals and tourists. The only downfall is the cost, it is on the pricey side.
