Located on the water. Some locals fish off the pier at the end of the park, beside the property. There are a couple of smaller rooms that are a bit cheaper int he back, by the water, but the others are more comfortable. Nice restaurant and bar. Short walk to town center or the supermarket up the road.

Nice spot to stop for a night. The rooms are not going to win any awards-- however, they are clean and the staff is accommodating. The pub and restaurant are very good! Fresh food and quality service.

We stayed for one night in mid September, on our way south. The room was large and comfortable with nice views of the river. We ate at the restaurant.... Yummy. The haddock was so fresh! Breakfast was really good and substantial.

Unfortunately, there are no rooms on the ground floor and our party consisted of 4 senior citizens, two of whom are handicapped. The only way to the rooms was up narrow, steep stairs or two-tiered stairs on the outside. No elevator. Room was adequate but no mini fridge or microwave. One of our party had insulin to keep cool and... More

Thank you for your review. I feel compelled to correct the information regarding the first floor. We were sold out of first floor rooms when you were staying with us. We offer two rooms with Queen beds and a room with a King bed on the first floor. These rooms are accessible by a ramp although they would not qualify... More

I understand this hotel is going to undergo a rehab, so hopefully things will be better then. The restaurant by the way just went through a rehab and is very good. I ate several breakfasts and dinners there and enjoyed them. My room was a small "Suite". It had a sofa and coffee table, But there was literally nowhere to... More

Thank you for your review. Your room was a third floor room in the original 1798 section and yes, it it on the list for renovation this year. These rooms are much smaller than the rooms on the first and second floor so there isn't much room for extra amenities such as a fridge and microwave. They were provided upon... More

Can't say enough good stuff about Lane's. I had booked several rooms for our group travel. Six of us. They had a private party going on and I had, had some concern our group would be somewhat ostracized since we were traveling my motorcycle. Just the opposite. They actually switched the birthday party group to the dining room area and... More

I chose Liverpool as a staging post to visit the SW of Nova Scotia and happened across Lanes. The Inn is a gluing together of the old front half of a property and a 'motel' style add-on at the rear. The restaurant has been recently renovated and done well to match the style of the old part. The food was... More

Thank you so much for your kind review, blaizefly! We love all your fantastic comments, and hope you're in to see us again soon! The new Restaurant/Pub should be open May 13, and we're so excited to show everyone. (With so many changes on the horizon, we promise the chowder will remain the same.) More
