Upon arriving at the Train Station (built in 1887) I was pleasantly taken back by the artistic atmosphere. What a great concept, saving an old train station along with train cars and a caboose and restoring them into a beautiful and playful place to stay. 4 stars for the atmosphere. The dinning experience was not even close to the expectation's... More

Good Afternoon David, I had an opportunity to speak with the staff who were working on Friday evening and everyone involved was very upset and disappointed to hear your comments. We welcome all feedback from compliments to constructive criticism. Without feedback we would never know where we need to improve or what may need to be changed. For your Caesar's... More

My wife and I stayed in caboose # 10 on Saturday June 28th. We have enjoyed a meal at the dining car on a previous trip but this time we stayed the evening in a caboose. We were courteously greeted at the gift shop/check-in and were delighted that they could check us in early (Noon) as we had been on... More

This was our second time to the Train Station Inn for a meal. The food and the service were excellent on both occasions. Most of all we really appreciated the charm and the warmth of the atmosphere. If you are going for dinner it is best if you make a reservation. Unfortunately while we were there a few people were... More

We did not stay overnight at the Train station Inn but we had dinner the day before our return home. We were in a "3rd class car" that has been transformed into a small but very cosy and absolutely 1st class restaurant. You don’t go there for the view as there is none. You go there to have a very...

While planning our trip to Nova Scotia I came across the Train Station Inn which was so unique. My wife and I looked at the Boxcar Jimmie and thought it would be fun for our daughter to be able to sleep in the loft. She loved it! Everyone there were so nice which made the stay enjoyable. We had dinner... More

My 5 year old nephew *loved* the Train Station Inn. He absolutely could not get enough of sleeping in a train. The owners were so generous and you can see how much they love the property, enough to make it what it is. We really enjoyed eating in the dining car, too. The food was delicious! I only wish that...

We stayed at the Train Station in August 2013 during a 2 week vacation through NB and NS. I've been around the world and have to say the Train Station was the most unique experience. We were treated liked royality. The spice toffee cake in the Governors Car is to die for.

My partner did not know we were going to stay here on a recent tour of Nova Scotia.On arrival down the trail i think he thought we were staying at an Inn, which is the first building you see (the old station building), once we turned the corner, he saw the carriages and realised we were going to be staying...

For train enthusiasts (of any age) and anyone else passing through you just have find at least one night in the itinerary for this delightfully unique hotel. The staff were very accommodating, helpful and friendly, and the hotel experience is as charming as it is unique. This hotel is a destination in itself, and is as much a thing to... More

Being married to a train enthusiast it seemed like the perfect place to stay! The train cars themselves are nicely renovated while still leaving some of the original train aspects intact. I would defiantly recommend staying for the experience but don't expect to be comfortable. The beds leave little be be desired. If you are looking to get a good... More
