Wanted to find accommodation near Alderney Landing for the ferry to Halifax and chose Blockhouse Hill because it is only a few minutes walk from the ferry. When booking, there were cordial e-mails offering assistance with aspects of holidaying in Nova Scotia. Marion's warm welcome when we arrived set the tone for a very enjoyable two-night stay. There are two... More

Traveling solo for over two weeks, my time in Halifax was something I was really looking forward to. Blockhouse Hill B&B and my hosts Fred & Marion did not let me down. Allowing strangers to stay in your home takes a lot of trust and an inviting personality. I was comforted knowing I was only a stranger for about 5... More

We recently stayed at Blockhouse Hill, aka Fred & Marion's home. They treated us like friends and made us feel so welcome. We had the pleasure of meeting great fellow travelers and spending an enjoyable couple of days with them. The breakfasts were fantastic and the setting was comfortable ...

This was our last stop of our trip around Nova Scotia. What a find. Fred and Marion were the most delightful hosts. We had both rooms in their home which were light and airy. We had a lovely sitting room where we could relax at night. Coffee was delivered there at 7 in the morning great to wake up to.... More

This was our first B&B en route NL. Fred and Marion, our hosts, certainly treated us like family. The place is very clean and comfortable and Marion's breakfasts were the best. Our guest sitting room, close to the bedrooms, was a good place to relax at the end of the day. Coffee was delivered to the sitting room at 7am... More

Very friendly and helpful. Fred offered to drive us down to the restaurant that wasn't a 10 minute walk. Place is located close to the ferry terminal. Our flight was cancelled by Air Canada without any warning and we lost a day of vacation but they didn't charge us for the extra night we missed even though we didn't have... More

The Blockhouse is a one of the most comfortable, welcoming and friendly B&Bs I have ever stayed in - and that is a lot! Fred and Marion are charming and entertaining hosts and Marion's breakfasts are a star attraction on their own.

Fred and Marion went out of their way to make our stay in Dartmouth as pleasant as possible. - special considerations for dietary restrictions, a birthday morning muffin with a candle and song, and fireplace glowing when coming home on a wet night. When eye drops were needed on a Sunday morning, Fred called around and then drove me to... More

We stayed here several years ago and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were adequate and it was quiet and in a great location for sight seeing. We let our family satay in our Condo and moved in here for a week. It is central, a little pricey but clean and the owners were very nice.
