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

We stayed at a very busy time in the area so not many options were available and it was OK for the price but not somewhere I would go back to or recommend. Nice old place but overdue for some updating. The wind was blowing a foul order over from the pulp mill across the harbor which didn't help, the... More

The inn is quaint if you want to stay in an "inn". The rooms are a bit dated. However if you need to open a window in the sumer due to heat, then the smell from the pulp and paper plant could be an issue. It is not he owners fault, but it is quite strong. We had to keep... More

My family, (Husband, Mother, Aunt, Sister and Brother-in-Law) stayed at The Braeside Inn, Pictou, NS, for 1 night while on our way to PEI. The rooms are a little dated, but they were clean and affordable. The dining room is lovely and the servers were exceptional. We had a wonderful dinner and a lovely continental breakfast (bkfst. included in cost... More

From the plastic under sheets to the old thin tiny bath towels this place is stuck somewhere in the 1950's. Tiny TV with video recorder, small bed, cheap linen and pillows, noisy A/C. Morgue like dining / Breakfast room. B/fast of Tinned fruit, bowl of some sort of yoghurt, a few cereals and cook your own toast. It looks great... More
