The Braeside Inn is a quirky little inn in Pictou, Nova Scotia. It has lost its shine of previous years. It has a lovely view of the water, and is in walking distance of the waterfront and restaurants. The decor in the downstairs lobby is delightfully quirky, and there is a lovely room in which to read and drink your... More

My family and I stayed here last night, and I have to say, we were well-pleased! It is dated, but I felt that added to its charm. The owner is friendly and so kind, and he even took the time to elaborate on the inn's history. The breakfast was good--standard continental fare, and the dining room was quite beautiful. I'd...

When I go away for any amount of time I love to be in a place that makes me feel like I'm part of the history, and the Braeside did that. I received a warm welcome, was provided with anything I requested immediately, and was impressed that they were able to maintain the historic building but yet provide air conditioning... More

The inn is a throw back from the 50's. It was once beautiful but time has not changed anything about the hotel. Our room was extremely small with an old worn armchair, with no room for anything. And, the catch was we were upgraded to a larger room. The town too is suffering from the loss of the ferry. Shops... More

The best thing to say is that the owners were very friendly and the location is pretty good. Our booking got lost between the on-line booking agency and the owners, but luckily they still had space. (Make sure you have received an email confirmation directly from the hotel as well as the on-line agency). The room was 'tired', the 'special'... More

We had a decent meal here at an affordable price. The service was average, the clientele were mostly local folks in coffee groups or family settings. It is clean, but in a greasy spoon sort of way, well scrubbed, but rustic, if you know what I mean. The seafood offering of clam strips and fried haddock was good, but a... More

Whilst driving toward Pictou, we phoned to see if the Inn had any spare rooms and was advised that there was only the one left, but it was of a higher rate. Room 12 is a very large cornered room located on the second floor, accessed by stairs only. The bed and pillows were comforftable (a blessing considering it was... More

It is a nice place to stay before taking the ferry across to PEI. In our corner room, we could have the windows open for cross ventilation or use the AC. It's close enough to walk 5 minutes to the harbor for dinner. It would be hard to find except that there is signage directing you as you drive into... More
