My second visit in October was just as great as my first. I've been meaning to share some thoughts but put it off. My memory was tweaked because of some biscuits. On top of this being a beautiful and comfortable Inn to stay in, Val the owner makes some of the best food. I asked her for her biscuit recipe... More

We arrived late on a cold October night to a warm and simple, door open, key in an envelope, welcome. Fresh air through opening windows makes for a good night's sleep. The breakfast was simply prepared and tasty.

We recently stayed here on a 2 night break and absolutely loved it. Our room - no 10 - was more than adequate for our family of 3. Our host, Val, could not have been any more welcoming, accommodating or hospitable if it were possible!! Breakfast is a real treat too with homemade muffins, jams, and plenty coffee refills. If...

Our Backroads group pretty much filled the Inn for 2 nights. Hillsdale House was perfect. Staff very welcoming, and they worked so hard to take care of us all. Room was very comfortable, and the grounds were lovely. Short walk into town / and to the Fort. Great location. Food amazing. Super breakfasts & great job with our special dinner!... More

Spent one night here on a Nova Scotia road trip. The staff are fantastic, friendly and informative, and the house is simply lovely, one of the best places we have stayed and excellent value. If your passing through Annapolis Royal, then look no further!!

We celebrated the marriage of our daughter this weekend at the Hillsdale House Inn. It was absolutely magical!! We were a small group of 27 and had the whole inn for the weekend. The Inn, the grounds, were absolutely spectacular!! The staff were unbelievable. We were treated like their family. Anything we needed was provided immediately. Inkeeper Val was amazing.... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my two night visit. My room was lovely and provided great views of the property. The bathroom was uniquely situated down a set of four steps and provided all needed amenities. The grounds are immaculately maintained, quiet, and provide a perfect escape for reading or an afternoon nap in one of the many outdoor chairs. Breakfast was... More

A 13 room inn/B&B in the heart of Annapolis Royal. Walking distance to the Historic Gardens, Fort Anne National Historic Site, and shops and restaurants. Free wifi with no password required. Rooms are decorated in Victorian style, sometimes a bit too much so. The furniture is period (read: old) and therefore not the most comfortable, as springs are gone and... More

The Hillsdale House Inn was one of the greatest parts of my visit to Nova Scotia. This is a truly lovely piece of property that is located only a couple of doors away from the Historical Gardens and within walking distance of everything in town. The breakfast is the best any where, homemade bread and muffins every morning. Val, the... More

What could be better ? - a beautiful and well maintained Victorian house, a large and comfortable room, a well presented and tasty breakfast, walking distance to the town and all amenities, and very friendly staff. Just wish we could have stayed longer.
