As you wander up to this historic building during the spring, which is home to the Prince of Wales Hotel in the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, the gardens are full of radiant colors. The trees are adorned with beautiful pink flowers while the brightly colored tulips line the walkway leading to the entrance of the hotel in Niagara on the Lake.
Across the street, a horse and buggy takes passengers on a tour past the historic grounds of the Prince of Wales Hotel and down the street to other interesting landmarks. The hotel was built in 1864 and is situated in the heart of the historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.
The Victorian elegance of the hotel is easily seen from the outside, but once you pass the breathtaking garden and go through the entrance of the hotel, the interior design is stunning. All the rooms are decorated in the Victorian style with antique furnishings and traditional brocades and tapestries.
A garden spa is hidden on the grounds of the Prince of Wales Hotel where guests can pamper themselves with up-to-date therapies and then enjoy an elegant dinner in the restaurant. For those who prefer a simpler pace of life while on vacation, there is a restaurant which caters to a less formal type of atmosphere. A beautiful way to spend an afternoon while staying at the historic Prince of Wales Hotel is to check out their tea which is held every day.
The Prince of Wales Hotel is a place which is not truly appreciated and brought to life until it is visited in person, with Spring being the prettiest time of year as the gardens are bursting with color. A place where people are treated with great respect and the staff is always on call to ensure that every guest has the best possible visit while staying at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Ontario, Canada.Horse and carriage outside the Prince of Wales Hotel (built in 1864) surrounded by colourful tulip flowers, Tulipa, in the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.
