When we walked in the door, I was taken by how pretty the rooms were. Old fashioned came to mind. Our room was comfortable-the ultimate test-we slept well. It was spotless. The AC worked well. At first, I sat on the bed trying to figure out the faint sulfurous smell. Then I remembered the TA post about the pulp mill.... More

Staff treated us like gold. We booked our room late and we were only able to secure one nights lodgings but the day we checked out the staff let us park our Harley on their grounds and use their facilities to change and freshen up the next day. This allowed us to spend two very comfortable days at the festival.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet and comfortable night at this inn. It was early season and we were the only guests but all amenities were available to us. As long as you can handle some stairs this is a fine place for the weary traveller. With a continental breakfast as early as 7:30 we were well on our... More

We stayed there for 2 nights with our 2 year old son. Overall we were very satisfied. As we were looking for a place to stay and form which to go to PEI for a day we did not expect to stay long in the Inn nor Pictou. Bad things: dated decor (a bit smelly rooms, this smell of "old");... More

We arrived on a rainy night to find that we were the only guests booked for the entire Inn that night. First impressions were disappointing. The decor was very dated. A mishmash of decorating styles: Asian, 80s decor, English country house, etc. The worst though was the Creepy Clown sitting in the chair. The Innkeepers, Anne and Mike, were friendly... More

We stayed 3 nights over a period of 2 weeks using Braeside as sort of a home-base while we toured on our motorcycles, leaving our truck & trailer there. Anne & Mike were more than accommodating & we really enjoyed our stay at this lovely quaint inn.

Frankly, Pictou is hardly the garden spot of Nova Scotia particularly with the large pulp factory across the water spewing enormous amounts of smoke and pollutants into the air. We understand that when the wind is just so, the smoke comes over the town and is quite terrible.I am sure that the pollutants are a potential or actual health issue.... More

This was the place we picked to stay for our honeymoon night. Aug. 3rd. MISTAKE. The owner was not at all pleasant- the room was terrible, and DIRTY and the inn was terribly NOISY. We left our 2 dogs in the car, as we planned to leave early in the morning. As it was- when I found a large long... More

This sweet, older but charming hostelry saved our necks by being able to provide us a corner room on a moment's notice on this past Labour Day weekend. This cute place is simply a throwback to an old wooden small-town hotel and must be experienced. It's comfy, warm, quiet, private and has large (but austere) good private washrooms. Beds are... More

I made. a reservation with this Inn and sent a request if I could bring a pet. They confirmed they got the request but they intransigently insisted they had no requirement to reply to my question as it states Pet Free. After 40 years in the hospitality Industry including three of Nova Scotia most famous resort hotels I have NEVER... More
