We were looking for a pet-friendly place to stay in Pictou in December and were happy with the Lionstone Inn motel. The room was nice and clean. The pantry kitchen was a big bonus. We paid $105 (two dogs included) before taxes.

So very much appreciated the clean, quiet & comfortable, friendly environment of the Lionstone Inn. We had planned to stay one night but ended up staying for three we were so relaxed there. The location was perfectly convenient for day tripping around the county and exploring the scenic beauty. And time to rest and cool our heels was so needed!... More

The not so positive aspect is that the furniture is very worn. The rattan on the sofa was unraveling and the cushions had seen a lot of use. The kitchenette was sparsely furnished... More

If you just want an inexpensive, clean place to stay for the night, this is perfect. The bed was comfortable and whilst the facilities were somewhat dated and limited, for a one night stay that was fine. Nice to have the option of a cottage with 2 rooms.

We (2 couples) stayed in the duplex cottages #25/26. These are very 50's in decor and fixture, and sloping floors, but we were warm and comfortable and the price was reasonable. The only complaint we would make is that only one of the rooms had a decent t.v.(flat screen) while the other had a very old poor tube set that... More

The staff are super friendly and the room is basic but clean. Great value for your dollar and if you are looking for a clean, friendly place to stay in Pictou this is definitely a great place to stay. Pillows were comfy, beds were comfy and staff is great and accommodating.
