The service at the restaurant was terrible. We had 3 meals the at breakfast the service was extremely slow & at dinner the service was extremely slow. The wait staff was indifferent. The quality of the food was mediocre. Thus these meals were over priced for the marginal quality food & bad service.. It is unfortunate as everything else at... More

Although the BlueNose was closing on Sunday for the winter season, the Inn was functioning as if in high season. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The décor of the Inn and its rooms is traditional with wood, brass and crystal, large floral prints, and comfortable furnishings. Our room, #326, had a living room with a gas fireplace and with...

Although this was a late season special event (in fact, the Inn was hosting a murder mystery dinner), it was clear the staff of the Bluenose are dedicated to helping guests have a wonderful time in this amazing part of the world.

We had a wonderful large room with a balcony which faced the water. The bed was so comfortable and the furnishings were homey with a beautiful fireplace. The hotel is located close to downtown (within walking distance) and only 3 miles from Acadia. We were with a group, but we would definitely stay here again. Lovely bar area with great... More
