We traveled from Boston to Calais, Maine and then on to Nova Scotia the next day. The Visitor Center at Amherst, Nova Scotia called and reserved Dolan's for us. It has to be one of the best places to stay! We had a studio apartment with our own front porch looking out onto Pictou Bay. There was a full kitchen,... More

After touring PEI, headed to Nova Scotia on the ferry. Very lovely spot in downtown Pictou. Place was very accomadating for ourselves and friends. Can not beat the price! 3 bedrooms complete with pullout couch. Plus was not charged for additional guests. Owner went above and beyond recommending dinner options and ensuring we had everything for our stay. Two thumbs... More

Lovely bachelor apartment for 2 nights. Not great for sleeping. No curtains/blinds on upper windows so street lights and bank sign shining in all night and through window in door as well. Love getting up early but not when we don't have to, lots of morning light at 0515! Great bed though! Location is nice- close to water.

We checked in to Dolan's today and because of construction, we were upgraded from a simple room in the main house to a Gold house apartment. Talk about customer service! The staff was friendly and even drove us over to the new accommodations to show us how to get there. The room was bright, airy and clean. Love it!

We rolled up to Dolan's, Pictou on our motorcycle (at the location shown in photo above) in September, having made loose arrangements with the innkeeper (didn't need a firm booking due to time of year) only to find a an empty inn BUT friendly instructions on the door as to how to proceed.

Our family stayed in a Dolan's Inn and Suites in downtown Pictou prior to catching the ferry. The lady from Dolan's had us set up on the third floor of a building but upon seeing our luggage, and my bad knee, she took us to another one of their suites closer to the center of Pictou. The accommodations were great... More

After reading the reviews this place seems to get mixed ratings and I can see why., I asked the proprietor how many rooms they had...20+ in various buildings. This isn't clear online. We booked a 'silver' room...and were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment in a different building. Brand new..yellow building right near Sharon's diner. Full kitchen, big bathroom. No... More

We've spent two holidays (July 2010, and again in July 2011) with Dolan's Inns, both times staying at the Silver House (and for part of one visit, staying at the apartment beside the convenience store). Relative to the cost of other accommodation in the area, these apartments are excellent value. For less than the price of a hotel room, you... More

A group of 5, all in our 40's and 50's from Germany and Canada. Owner is a uniformed policeman who stood infront at his cop car with his K9 dog watching us the whole time while we unloaded without any introduction making us think we were getting a ticket.
