It was a very pleasant stay. We stayed in one of the bachelor suites which was right downtown Pictou. The balcony was lovely. It was nice to have the full kitchen. Wifi worked really well. Bed was very comfortable. Check in was nice, they had the incorrect dates for our reservation but it worked out fine luckily. Thank you for... More

Clean and comfortable, but the setup was a little strange (fridge and microwave in the bathroom). The inn seemed a little cluttered with cleaning supplies left out near our room, plus a coffee station set awkwardly between room doors. It was an alright experience, but there are more affordable places in town for the value.

We stayed here for one night! We were upgraded from an INN room to a suite which was nice. The room was very spacious. The sink for the bathroom was outside the bathroom beside the kitchen!!??? Towel bars would have been nice in place of the TV tables that had the towels etc. on them. The room was well supplied... More

Our family of 3 stayed in the 3rd floor suite in the main house for one night. After going up a narrow stairway we had a very large room with a king size bed, pullout couch, kitchen area, dining table and a large bathroom. It was very clean and looked new. The bed was comfortable. We had a glimpse of... More

Would not stay there if they paid me. Had confirmed reservations & received call from manager that they would not honor reservation because of typo in price. Checked price next day & same room listed for $30 more. Seems like either Dolan's or Hotel's.com would have done the right thing & honor the confirmed reservation.

My room had a huge, comforable bed, a giant whirlpool bath and an ocean view. The fridge was handy and the tv was great. Free wifi supplied gave me everything I needed for a wonderful few days. I would definitely recommend this to friends.

We enjoyed our stay at Dolan's Inn. Our hostess was friendly and welcoming. Our room was pleasant, spacious, and clean. Once we were able to set the right temperature on the air conditioner, the room was comfortable. We never had the chance to ask, but does the little town of Pictou only get 4 channels on the tv? I guess... More

We had a great apartment for 2 nights. Lots of extras, clean and inviting. Full kitchen, BBQ, and a washer and dryer. After traveling for two weeks we need them. We had the 2nd floor apt, with a wonderful view of the water. The owner Tony could not have been nicer. He came in to adjust the temp., and to... More

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
