We stayed with Ann and Larry in 2007 and again in June 2015 for another night after touring Cape Breton and PEI. Next time out that way we will stay in Truro an extra night or two to avail ourselves to the wonderful hospitality and food they provide. These are people who love sharing their home with guests.

We have traveled thruout Europe, U.S. and Canada in B&Bs. Tulips and Thistle is number 1. Everything is perfect, Larry and Anne, rooms, breakfast; just everything. The cost is reasonable and great value for the $$. Stay here or you will miss the best B&B.

This bed and breakfast was perfect as a hub for all of our Nova Scotia adventures. The room was big and bright. Of course it was bright due to the skylight with no cover so your up at dawn, but that is the only flaw in the place. The Wifi was strong and the little electric fireplace a cozy touch... More

The room (master sweet) was great ! The breakfast was fantastic and Anne and Larry's friendly welcoming hospitality made us feel like we were visiting old friends. Great times, great conversation with many laughs.... Great memories.

I had a slightly different experience from other reviews posted here but let me begin with the positives. The hosts are nice, the bed was comfortable, the towels were nice and the breakfast was delicious. I stayed in the Mississauga Room. I was disappointed in the room ambiance which seemed very dated. The walls were a powder blue and wall... More

I was stuck in bad weather and pulled over in Truro looking for a place to stay when a local gas station recommended the Tulip and Thistle B&B. Even though I arrived late and only called moments before, Ann and Larry were so friendly and welcoming. They showed me to my room, helped me get settled and even gave me... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at this B & B, but it was beautiful. We had the master suite. The interior was cozy and the hot tub in the bathroom a dream. The hosts were very accommodating. The lovingly prepared breakfast was delicious. We recommend staying at this B & B absolutley.

We stayed at this B&B for two days and wished we could have stayed longer! Ann & Larry were very hospitable and also helpful with restaurant and attraction suggestions in the area. They offer a choice of 4 rooms-three have ensuite bathrooms while the fourth room has it's own private bath across the hall. We stayed in the Fergus Suite... More

Though I had said that we'd arrive early in our reservation email, when we arrived at the B&B the host and hostess Larry and Ann were out for shopping. However, this does not affect our good impression much because subsequently during our two-night stay we had a wonderful time. Larry and Ann were really helpful and hospitable. They offered many...

We stayed for two nights while attending Nova Scotia Music Week events. The room was wonderful, the bed comfortable and the location quiet. The breakfasts were truly superb. Ann and Larry are terrific hosts who made us feel right at home. We admired the spacious yet cosy nature of their large lounge and dining area. Only one suggestion - it... More
