This past weekend we spent a most enjoyable at the Rodd Grand in Yarmouth. We were there for the Mothers Day brunch on Sunday and were delighted to say it was excellent. A very good selection for either breakfast or dinner. The roast beef was very tasty. Ashamed to say I visited the dessert table twice. Having my Uncle and... More

I use the Grand Hotel numerous times a year to attend meetings, hold functions in the convention center and I frequently use the restaurant. I am always greeted with courteous and accommodating staff. The rooms, restaurant food and service is all one would expect and fairly priced. The hotel is under new management and it is obvious that they are... More

While staying overnight on a business trip we went down for breakfast and the dining room was very busy with only one staff member. After getting coffee and tea we noticed our meals were not arriving and we had a meeting at 8:30 am. We reminded the staff who not only responded immediately but took responsibility and offered us free... More

We stayed here over the last weekend for a family funeral. The hotel was in pretty good shape and you can see the attempt at renovation. I know being from the area originally that southwest nova has fallen on hard times and understand like most people that the lost of the Scotia Prince ferry service over 6 years ago really... More

The only thing I could possibly say that was good about this hotel was the pool. Outside of that, the staff weren't very friendly in that they made you feel unwelcome. They made you feel if you ask them anything about the room , you were imposing on them. Certainly they did not ask if we enjoyed our stay or... More

After reading some reviews we were a little worried but we got to see firsthand the improvements made over the winter and the rooms look great. The thing that made this stay so amazing was the staff.

I travel throughout the province in my business. This hotel although old and in need of upgrades is one of the finest I have stayed in, with respect to service. Over the years of staying here the staff have become like family, always meeting you with smiles and professionalism. All the staff are currently working hard together as a team... More

Everyone we spoke to was very helpful and friendly. Kids loved the pool. (large pool for a hotel) We have... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel on April 17 as my daughter had a badminton tournament. We orginally booked at a competitor’s hotel because of the reviews, however we found out that the team was booked at this location.
