My wife and I were on our maiden trip to Nova Scotia and we decided to stay at some of the local B&Bs. I found this one on Trip Advisor and the reviews were spot on. We really enjoyed our hosts as well as the other folks staying there at the time. The breakfast each morning was excellent and just... More

Fantastic; Perfection; Relaxing. Bev. and Gordon could run seminars for people wanting to run a B&B. Their period home has been restored beautifully and most of it has been give over for use by their guests; four relaxing rooms on the second floor and a sitting room and dining area on the first; really well done. Now to the breakfasts.... More

My partner and I recently visited the Colby House for a weekend, and our stay was just as warm and welcoming as it was when we stayed there in December 2012. We were home visiting some friends and family and just had to stay here again. We stayed in the Gabriel room last time, which was lovely, but this time... More

All the rave reviews were true. This place is total luxury -- from the beds, furnishings, elegant bathrooms, and all the little extras (chocolates, toiletries ... too many thoughtful details to mention) down to the delicious multi-course breakfast. And the hosts are delightful. They offer the perfect balance of being helpful and attentive while allowing their guests some privacy and... More

This is a beautiful place and the hosts are wonderful people. They go out of their way to make you feel at home and answer all questions you might have about the area. The room, although small, was very comfortable. A lot of effort has gone into making this old house beautifully furnished. If you visit Sydney, you won't be... More

This was a beautiful old house in Sydney, with every room decorated very nicely in a homey and traditional style. The mattress was a King Coil Plush series 9000 & was the most comfortable one I've ever slept on! The hosts were also very nice & helpful & the breakfast was elegant & delicious.

Two people, unknown to one another, in the space of less than 2 hours of our arrival in Sydney asked if we knew where we were staying (we didn't) and then immediately with warmth, recommended Bev & Gordon's Colby House. We are SO glad they did. After our experience of a couple of nights on the road at run-of-the-mill soulless... More

Beverly and Gordon not only make your visit a special treat, but they've also created a unique B&B experience. We especially enjoyed the wrap-around porch for our afternoon relaxation after busy touring. Our color coordinated "Gabriel" room included unique features like embroidered pillow cases and richly appointed furnishing. Breakfast was a special treat and served on a different set of... More

This beautiful, spacious B&B on a big, corner lot (in an established neighbourhood of quiet streets and mature trees), won our hearts from the moment we drove up, walked in and were greeted by host Beverly and her husband, Gordon. The property is immaculate, both inside and out. The decor is stunning, mostly due to Beverly's crafting and sewing talents.... More

The Colby House was the best Bed and Breakfast that we stayed at on our trip through the Maritime Provinces. It is an easy walk to the Esplanade, where you can find several good restaurants. Parking at the B&B was on the street, which was not a problem. We stayed in the MacLellan room, which was beautifully decorated in blues.... More
