You will find many room options at Inn on the Lake - I stayed in two during my visit. The first was a lovely room on the 3rd floor with fireplace and jet tub in the bathroom. Unfortunately, I had to switch rooms due to the noise from another room. While the hotel has quiet hours, they do not enforce... More

Nice rooms, good service, great food. Stayed for a getaway weekend for our anniversary. In room hot tub was great. A little noisy but worth it. Stayed in January, during a snow storm, so obviously didn't get to use outdoor pool.

This is a clean, relaxing, well maintained boutique hotel. This is the third time I have stayed at Inn on the Lake for business purposes and I have to admit I am always glad that my employer chooses this location. It is perfectly located on the highway near the airport and the city center but you still feel like you... More

We unexpectedly stayed at the Inn for one night in September. We were on vacation touring Nova Scotia and PEI. All of our rooms were booked in advance, but we had to make some last minute changes and ended up staying here. I am so glad our plans changed. This was the most lovely of all the places we stayed...

The hotel offered everything we required for our romantic night away. Exceptional service, food and atmosphere. Hotel is easy to get to, right off the highway with plenty of parking. Craig at the front desk was very informative, welcoming and pleasant to deal with while he got us checked into our room and informed us about the "Choicehotel.ca program", we... More

We have eaten at the bar & in the restaurant many many times and for all three meals and have yet to have anything less than a fantastic meal. The service has been nothing shy of outstanding. It is located minutes from the airport and corners the highways to Dartmouth & Halifax. It is nestled on a beautiful lot on... More

The Inn On The Lake is a wonderful hotel that is very close to Halifax/Dartmouth as well as the Airport. The staff at this hotel are wonderful... very friendly and helpful! Our room was very nice, yes... a little dated, but extremely clean. We ordered mussels and a seafood casserole to our room and it was delicious! We loved our... More

Went for supper -Nice ambience and server was very good but food was hit and miss. Mussels were very good . Lamb was excellent while salmon was overcooked. Creme brûlée was ok but have had much better at other locations. Overall was too pricey for quality . Would probably go again but might stick with food items that require less... More

Had the pleasure of attending a two day business meeting here earlier this week. Beautiful well appointed room overlooking the lake. Had a great nights sleep. Excellent food serves at the business meeting and in the restaurant. The thing that sets the hotel apart is the staff. Very responsive to all requests. Special mention to the person who served the...
