Visited this lovely Inn for lunch recently. For some reason I bombed out with the food !, I ordered the French Dip baguette. I had to return it as the beef was cold and rare. My experiences with this type of sandwich is that it is served hot with a dipping sauce. It came with about 2 tablespoons of a... More

Dear Ruth G, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We readily welcome both positive and constructive comments. We looked into what happened that day and the fact there was a change in servers definitely complicated the level of service you received. They were aware that you did not like your baguette and should have removed it from... More

This is a very nice local inn near to Halifax. So if you don't want the craziness of the downtown area, with some beauty and quiet, this is your place. The inn is well kept with some very nice decor. Feels like a more personal place than a Hilton or a Marriott. Staff very friendly. Restaurant was excellent. Food is... More

Stay in September 2014 was not too bad. It sure is an old hotel and right beside a busy highway. We we're given two breakfast coupons with a value of $13.00 each. This was for the so called FREE breakfast. Don't exceed the allotted amount or you will pay the extra. My complaint is that we didn't get breakfast because... More

Dear Walter M, It appears we have a misunderstanding on what services are included with the rental of a room at the Inn and we experienced a break down in communications. The Inn is not obligated to offer free breakfast to any guests. We do not advertise or promote free meals. As a courtesy to guests who are leaving before... More

Great, helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable room with high quality evident, totally clean with the nice extra touches that rival 5 star hotels. One of the most comfortable beds, excellent bathroom and even the carpet was a pleasure to walk on! Few places have impressed us as much as this hotel. Highly recommended and won't disappoint.

We stayed here for one night in July and truly enjoyed it. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and it's so quiet on the balcony it's hard to believe you are near a highway. The restaurant is upscale and has a wonderful selection. The Seafood chowder was so creamy and the Halibut was done perfectly.... More

We just love it here. The rooms are clean and neat. The food and staff are amazing.
