We arrived at the door under a bolt of lightning to be warmly met by Jamie who promptly took us to our room and gave us a guided tour. We were extremely impressed with our King room, it was spacious light and really comfortable. The atmosphere from the minute we arrived to the minute we left was as welcoming as... More

Hosts were very nice, but the room with one queen bed and bath was terrible. Stained and yellowed wallpaper, uncomfortable mattress, worn sheets with not very high thread count, and the bedspread was worn as well, and pilled. Pillows were flat and also needed badly to be replaced. The bathroom had the lino lifting up one side of the toilet.... More

Willow House is a beautiful old house, in the heart of Pictou. Great location; easy to find, great paths along the water for a stroll and close to tons of restaurants within walking distance. The Inn's host Jamie is very pleasant, has an amazing memory for the name of his guests and they serve a very yummy breakfast! The room... More

Other reviews are correct. The place was clean, the hosts were warm, the food was great. However, it badly needed renovation before I will reconsider. The bathroom faced the main road and it was quite easy to look out (and in). It was also quite small and I was barely able to sit down next to the shower cube (use... More

This is a heritage property in downtown, and the owners are really sweet and friendly. The furniture is made up of lovely antique pieces, however the inn really needs a renovation. The wallpaper is peeling off of the walls, there were cracks in the plaster ceiling, stains on the floor, and everything was dark and in need of care. The... More

We arrived unannounced & Jamie immediately made us feel at home in this lovely old B&B. Yes, there are stairs but our room was clean and comfortable. Full breakfast (delicious scones) around a large table was a friendly affair with other guests. It was easy to walk to the major sites along the waterfront and Jamie was a good source... More

We enjoyed 2 comfortable nights with friendly hosts at the Willow House Inn. Our king bed room on the second floor was spacious and quiet. The breakfasts were tasty and complete. We enjoyed the company of other travellers. Would definitely recommend Willow House for value and comfort.

Lost count of how often we have retreated to the charming comfort of Debbie & Jamie's abode . We travel to Pictou for business , however find a welcome, warm cherry embrace at the WILLOW HOUSE INN. Of particular note, whether booked to capacity or in the off season , these local folks have "time" for all , chatting about... More

We reserved this B&B last minute while on the 8pm ferry from PEI to NS. To secure a room (with less than 2h arrival time) we had to leave our credit card details, which we did. The B&B was easy to find and nearby the ferry, which was nice for the late arrival. Unfortunately, our prepaid reserve put us up... More

The couple who own this B & B welcome you into their home as though you were old friends. For the first time, I even went downstairs after dinner to enjoy the homey atmosphere with other guests and looked forward to seeing them at breakfast. We had a suite of 2 rooms and our own bathroom on the 3rd floor... More
