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

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!

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
