We stayed a night in this very cool B/B. It is in a good location and the rooms are a very good size, clean and well furnished. The host Doug is very helpful and we had a nice breakfast as we'll in the cool pub downstairs.

We stayed here recently. The house is very impressive and our room was quite large and overlooked the harbour. The room is simply furnished, clean, and quiet. I would suggest that the owner put in coffee makers in the rooms, a small touch that is very appreciated by guests. We hurried on in the morning so did not take advantage... More

Rooms were very large and clean. Location was great. Service was okay, we could not get the ceiling fan working and kept trying to call the front desk but no one answered. This may be petty, but I found it really annoying because there was a hand written note from housekeeping saying that should we need anything to let them... More

I'm a little embarrassed to say I didn't want to stay here because of where this B&B sat in the review status. I've sworn by trip advisor as a travel consultant for years and when in the hotel industry as well but this was an absolute delight. It was a long weekend and we did not have a lot of... More

The Customs House Inn was chosen for us as part of our touring package of Nova Scotia. Upon arrival the Inn wasn't much to look at (I should have known not to judge the book by it's cover). As soon as you walk in it is was spacious, comfortable and clean. Our room had a kitchenette as well as a... More

I chose this title because I believe that the place has potential but that the owners still have some way to go to add the finishing touches to make it a B&B that will see repeat business. When we arrived in Pictou we had some trouble finding the place. When one approaches from the street close to the marina, the... More

I stumbled upon this gem through our corporate travel website when I was looking for a someplace after I got off the Wood Islands - Caribou ferry. What a GREAT find! Given the later hour, the innkeeper was out but had left my key and note taped to the office door. I found a really charming room with high ceilings,... More

This was a lucky last-minute find in our recent road trip through Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Pictou is an amazingly scenic place. The local residents, to commemorate their founding fathers and mothers, built an authentic replica of the ship that sailed here from Scotland. It sits in the picturesque harbour, with a number of good eating places nearby. Customs... More

This Inn was a real find. Our King room was huge, well furnished and had a huge bathroom. This is the old Customs house, That has been restored and is very nice. The continental breakfast in the old pub was basic but good. The room rate was very reasonable.There are several restaurants within walking distance ( the Thai was great)

This was a really nice spot. Rooms were very spacious and Doug, the inn keeper, was a good guy. We all had a good conversation over breakfast. We stayed there during Canada Day and things in the town of Pictou were a bit slow, but we enjoyed the quite pace for a change. I would stay there again if over... More
