One of the best inns i've ever stayed at! The lobby is stunningly beautiful with lots of antiques but also a nice modern touch to it. The restaurant there was fantastic, reasonably priced and fresh, with a patio that has a picturesque view of the mountains. The inn also has a nice pool, small but quiet and cold, perfect to...

Beautiful architecture and location, but it really needs fresh paint. Excellent kingsize bed. Good room, bathroom needs refurbushing. Breakfast, not from a buffet, below what you may expect. Weakest coffee I ever had. There seems to be a policy of minimal investment.

conveniently close to the airport, just off the highway. We ate in the restaurant with a large group of family members. I've been here a few times and the food has always been very average if not a little disappointing. It likes to give the impression of a fancy establishment but the quality of the food is not great.

This is a pleasant hotel with good amenities in a very handy location for us. Situated right by a number of highways it is easy to get into Halifax, Dartmouth, or to explore the surrounding areas, which is probably its best feature. Everything else about it is average, from the room service to the food. The room itself was OK,... More

We spent a nice and amazing time here at the Inn on the Lake. The view, the jacuzzi, our large room, Encore's restaurant (fine cuisine), the service, the reception, everything was great. We hope to be back again.

This is what happened to me, upon arriving at the Inn my bridal party and I discovered the room that was booked 6 months earlier specifically for my wedding day and night was given to someone else. The bad part about it is that the individual staying in my reserved room was there for a month and a half (so... More

Dear Amanda, We have 3, two story suites, one of which you were booked in. All are the same dollar value and it is standard policy at the Inn and most hotels, that we never promise a particular room number just room type for the very reason you experienced. When you called to ensure an early check in, we explained... More

Spend the night there if you have an early flight to take. Minutes from the airport, this hotel has everything you look for. Great service, clean, and with a great pub / restaurant on site. Pick a room with a balcony with lake view, pour yourself a scotch and relax. Would recommend this spot to everyone.

Spent two nights (July 26 and 27) at this awesome Inn. We has a King Suite on the third floor over looking the lake. We were met by two great ladies at the front desk who made the check in fast and easy. Our room was very clean and huge. The bathroom was a bit small but very clean and... More

We checked in late on Sat night after Delta airlines managed to make us miss our flight and cost us a day of our vacation. We were tired, frustrated, and generally cranky. The motel restaurant was closed, like everything else in the town. The motel doesn't have an elevator, and one of our party has knee problems, so we were... More
