We always check TripAdvisor for reviews and places to eat/stay. As this B&B was rated #1, it was our go to choice and we weren't disappointed! We got the last room which was perfect for us as we were on our honeymoon. Room was good size, very comfortable bed, air conditioning and chandelier to top it off. Water, chocolates and... More

This was our first visit to Sydney and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Our hosts were wonderful and we loved our room. Breakfast was excellent and we had a great visit and met other travellers over breakfast. Can't beat their maritimes hospitality. Thank you so much Bev & Gordon!

Beverly and Gordon deserve their 5stars. They have a beautiful and clean house in Sidney within walking distance to restaurants and downtown. We stayed only one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is warm and welcoming. The breakfast ~ well it is almost worth the trip for the breakfast alone. On our. Is it we had wild blueberry crumble... More

Gordon and Bev's beautiful home was a wonderful place to spend our one night in Sydney. We had a lovely walk to the waterfront where our restaurant was located and then had a very comfortable night in our lovely room. Breakfast was superb.

Colby House is among my favorite BnBs I've stayed in. The rooms were extremely clean, the sheets soft and comfortable and the house inviting. The breakfasts were both delicious and filling. The first morning we spent a long time talking with Bev (the hostess) about the lift of a BnB owner, real estate and listened to her son's bluegrass band.... More

The Colby House is one of the nicest B&B's that I have been to. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The location is very central to many of the areas attractions. The rooms are very nice and the breakfast is great! This is a must stay when you are in Sydney, NS!

The beds were the most comfortable of our trip, and the breakfasts were most delicious. The hosts are friendly, welcoming, and helpful, without being in any way intrusive. The décor is beautiful, the bathrooms have everything you need (including disposable razors, Q-tips, and cotton pads!)

This was an absolutely wonderful bed and breakfast. The rooms were so well-appointed even though the beds were only double rather than queen sized. The food for breakfast was amazing. The wrap-around porch was so fine in the hot, although windy, weather. You could walk to almost any area - downtown, the casino, a great coffee shop.

Over the course of my 2 weeks in Nova Scotia, I stayed in 7 B&Bs. None had a breakfast like this one. I spent two nights here, and the tableware changed between days. Both days the setting was incredible, I felt like I was dining at a 3 Michelin star restaurant when I sat down for breakfast. And the food... More

The Colby House was our final stop after several weeks traveling in Canada - and our best. Bev and Gordon welcome you into their home as honored guests. The four individual rooms are lovely; the amenities of their home are for your use from the great porch to elegant living room. They will tirelessly answer all of your questions or... More
