This B & B is not in Truro! Really, not even close. It is about 15 minutes away. At check in I met the owners and inquired where Truro was and he noted "it was just a few miles away". We wanted to be in Truro to get up early to see the tide changes. I said I would check... More

Our room was very spacious. We had an excellent rest. The breakfast was hot and tasted great. We felt very much at home. Our host Ann and Larry were gracious hosts. We were made to feel welcome from the onset and when we left felt like we were leaving friends. These are two people that are in the right business.... More

Anna and Larry are great hosts. Their home is spotless and the breakfasts are delicious. They are very knowledgeable and can help you find the activities you are looking for. Try the Nook and Cranny for dinner in Truro. Also try the tidal bore rafting. Tidal Bore adventure rafting (Capt Morgan) did a great job.

Private home B&B in a suburban setting convenient to the Confederation Bridge and travel to P.E.I. Rooms were on second floor, quite large and well appointed with nice bathroom. Breakfast included many choices and was well prepared.

What a lovely home and lovely hosts! We spent 1 night here en route to Cape Breton. Beautiful inside and out, and the best sleep I have had so far on our holiday! Breakfast was wonderful and it is very easy to get into Truro from the B&B. Wheelchair access Although there is none as this is part of a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Tulips and Thistle B&B in Truro, Nova Scotia last night. We enjoyed our stay very much. Ann and Larry are very friendly hosts and they made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We were treated to a bedtime snack before bed. Our room was the Mississauga room. It is the smallest...

We spent 3 days at the Tulips and Thistle B&B in Truro and were warmly welcomed by Anne and her husband Larry. Anne made sure that every morning we were sent off for our day's adventures with a full stomach. We had a menu to pick from the night before and in the morning we were treated to an amazing... More

What a great place to stay. Room was great, it had great atmosphere, Couldn't ask for better hosts they were friendly, knowledgeable about the area and fantastic cooks. They made you feel very welcome and part of their home. It was nice to have a menu and a choice of what you wanted for breakfast. Highly recommend the Chefs Surprise!!... More

The Bed & Breakfast is farther out of Truro than I expected. Not a negative, just be prepared. The house is beautiful as are the seating areas outside. The antiques are beautiful as well. We were traveling with my 18-month old son which was not optimal in such a house. Our room had two beautiful porcelain pitchers on the lower... More
