We stayed at this Wandlyn for 2 nights because it is very close to the area we were working for the weekend. Check in was quick and easy, our room was a drive up which we requested. We had our 2 dogs traveling with us and they were very welcome - there was a big grassy area right behind our... More

Amherst is a popular area, and this Wandlyn Inn is an economical option for lodgings. It is clean and safe, the staff is friendly, and our drive-up room on the ground/parking level was convenient. However, it has become a bit shabby and could use some sprucing-up. The included continental breakfast was very limited. We ate dinner here the 2 nights... More

Have stayed here a couple of times in the last month. Great clean rooms. Awesome staff. Not sure about the food. We haven't had a chance to eat here. Great clean rooms. Slept very well on our king sized bed

The Wandlyn was okay but not good. At $107. it was overpriced. The staff however, was very good. Both the evening and morning desk people were very helpful. The main complaint was that the room was not prepared - there were not enough towels and the toilet had been used - and not flushed - before when we walked in.... More

It is an older hotel but was clean. A little worn but the price was really good. Loved the carved figures out of trees that a local gentleman did of the town's historical figures. Huge trees and painted.

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There is a coin opperated washer and dryer available. The service was very good and the staff was friendly. Convenient location. Not fancy, but a good deal for the price.

Clean, older hotel, greatfor a one night stay as Amherst is a small town with not much to do or see. You can use them as a stop over on your travels through the northern part of Nova Scotia. The food in the restaurant was exceptional, the service was beyond reproachh. All in all a pleasant stay.

As other reviewers say, the hotel is dated, which I think is somewhat charming. It doesn't try too hard to be something it's not; it's a throwback to another time when you drove up to your room and it didn't need to be fancy. The carpets are nearing the end of their life, but the customer service was great. I... More
