My husband and I spent a very pleasant evening and overnight this past weekend. Our room provided everything we needed and we really liked having an outside entrance and a room with river views on two sides. We enjoyed a very tasty dinner and breakfast with awesome service. Nice to find locally roasted coffee as well as local beers and... More

Despite patchy reports we scored a large and comfortable room that was reasonably well insulated from the pub below and the traffic out front. The décor is a little dated but not so much that it’s offensive. The staff were friendly and efficient and the whole place felt like a family run operation. Although the bathroom could do with a...

We arrived, and we informed that the king suite we had booked was already taken, and that they had tried to call us for a few days to switch our room. I checked my cell phone (which I carry with me 24/7) not a single missed call or message. We took the queen bedroom anyway as it was less in... More

We were guests at a wedding held on the banks of the beautiful Mersey River this summer and it couldn't have been more perfect. The rolling lawns and huge shady trees made a romantic background for the ceremony and the meal was delicious. The food was served quickly by a friendly and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend Lane's for a... More

A day trip to Liverpool from the Annapolis Valley ended with a very scrumptous supper on the quaint stoned patio, in a park like setting with lovely views of the river. The staff friendly and our dining experience was top shelf!! can't wait to return, very impressed. Michelle Greenwood NS

We stayed at Lane's while on a cycling trip late July and had a 2nd floor room with a view of the parking lot and partial river. While the room was dated, we found it quite charming. It was clean and more than adequate for our needs with a lovely little sitting area. The staff was absolutely wonderful. When we... More
