Queenston was a thriving town for tourists boasting 13 inns and taverns but now only the South Landing Inn remains and has managed to stand through 200 years of history to be a premier destination for the location.


South Landing Inn has undergone some gentle renovations to improve the already high standards of service it provides to thousands of guests every year.
