Great hosts, great food, great everything! Rooms very comfortable and hosts went out of their way to accomodate us. Make sure to listen when they recommend activities in Annapolis Royal - they know their stuff!

In town on business, I was so glad to stay at the Hillsdale House. I was treated with such warmth and hospitality by the staff and owners who opened their home and hearts. The owners know their area well, and were able to direct me to lovely pastimes, drives, and diners for my time off. The Hillsdale House offers the... More

We've stayed at the Hillsdale House Inn numerous times and keep coming back because it is just the best place to stay. The accommodations are superb, it has a nineteenth century ambiance, and the breakfast is to die for. Val and Paul are just the greatest hosts and all the staff is super friendly. I can't say enough about it.... More

I'll start at the end of our stay. We took the ferry from Portland, ME and had to drive back very early to get home. The owners packed a breakfast care package of homemade muffins and fresh picked blueberries, along with cups of fresh coffee. The care and consideration that the owners pay to their guests is true of everything... More

We spent two nights at Hillsdale House and I wish we had been able to stay longer. The rooms were beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable and the food was fabulous! Paul and Val were gracious and warm and they helped us plan our visit to historic sites. We fully intend to visit again and again!

Comfortable room - watching the deer graze at sunset while enjoying a glass of local wine. The breakfast was yummy. The location was perfect - an easy walk to shops, dining, and thee water. Highly recommended.

Our party of four stayed at Hillsdale House and loved everything about it. Friendly innkeepers, beautiful rooms with comfortable beds, delicious breakfast in a gracious dining room. The public spaces were welcoming and beautifully decorated. We stayed one night and would have liked to stay another!

The Hillsdale House Inn is lovely. There are beautiful gardens and lawn spaces with seating. Our room was comfortable, well equipped, and pretty. The bedroom and bathroom were extremely clean. The breakfast was delightful with fresh fruit and eggs or pancakes made to order. We were well served by the waitress. I would recommend Hillsdale House emphatically.

Hillsdale House Inn reflects the age, character and friendly atmosphere of Annaplis Royal itself. The rooms are well appointed, quiet, private and decorated with peace and tranquility in mind. The Inn is Victorian with a modern addition and provides an oasis where guests are treated very well, spoiled in fact, by friendly owners and staff. The full breakfast is excellent.... More

Wonderful stay at Hillsdale with friends from Winnipeg who were rightly impressed. The inn is well maintained and the breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this inn and its gracious hosts.
