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.

Fred and Marion are a nice elder couple and really care for their guests. The room was very nice and clean and if you do not mind a shared bathroom this B&B is just perfect. They serve a very good breakfast with boiled eggs and homemade jam. The ferry to downtown Halifax is just a short walk away. Definitely a... More

We arrived to be warmly greeted by Marion who showed us to our room upstairs where there are two guest rooms, a shared bath and a small sitting area with tv. The wifi was reliable which helped us with finding a restaurant in Halifax and checking travel plans for the next day. Truly feels like you are staying in someone’s... More

Blockhouse Hill is located right by the ferry terminal to Halifax (10 minutes boat ride). We had a whole floor for ourselves and felt right at home. Marion cooked an excellent breakfast with home made muffins, banana bread, pancakes, jam and granola. Fred told us all about Halifax.

My experience of Fred and Marion's kindness started even from before arriving at their home when they drove over from Dartmouth to Halifax to pick me up on return from a voyage on the Tall Ship Lord Nelson. Their words on arrival at their house "welcome to our home" summed up the happy time I had for my all-too-short stay,... More
