Had nice stay - 2 nights. Convenient to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, etc. Staff very friendly & helpful. Nice room. Beautiful lake area, unfortunately couldn't enjoy due to bad weather. Area lacks restaurants.

A flight that landed at 11:30 at night was a motivator in booking a hotel closer to the airport than to downtown Halifax. It was a smart decision, as it made a good jumping-off point for our day-trips. The staff was friendly, our room was large, clean and well-appointed with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Although there is no elevator,... More

Four of us sat down on the deck Friday evening 11th. July, for a most excellent and enjoyable evening meal. The quality of food and the service was superb and a great night was had by all. I can highly recommend this eatery, and we will return on our next visit to wonderful Nova Scotia. Well done Inn on the... More

On 7/3 UNITED cancelled our flight due to severe weather conditions so we couldn't come and use our one-night reservation with this hotel. While the flight being delayed and later cancelled I was keeping the hotel front desk in the loop - by calling them on each update. So the hotel was aware we wouldn't be able to come and... More

Dear Rostov-Don, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience. We understand your frustration, however, you booked your room through Orbitz which has a non-refundable cancellation policy which you agreed upon when you chose to book through a third party booking engine. Third party booking engines are a great way to save money, however, there... More

Did not stay at the Inn although it looked like a very nice place to stay. We celebrated our Grand Daughter's Graduation with a nice supper and I was pleasantly surprised at the awesomeness of the service and quality of the food at their restaurant. There was eleven of us so we had a variety of meals ranging between fish,... More

What can I say about this inn. The value was great, fireplace in our room, great view of the lake. The concierge was so helpful, and the staff at the lounge were more than accommodating. I recommend this hotel for anyone traveling through Nova Scotia.

Surprised my wife with a night here with the Romance Renewed package the day after our wedding. It was a lot closer to the Halifax Shopping Center and Bayer's Lake than I had imagined, only about 15 minutes with light traffic. It was also a lot quiter than I had expected considering it is right on the highway. The room... More

Stunning location marred somewhat by highway traffic noise, but I knew about the highway location before booking. Easy check in and a comfortable room that was nice and clean even though it showed some - to be expected - wear and tear. My two encounters with the dining room (tea and desert, taken out to the lake front and breakfast... More

I stayed here one night on business. As a Diamond Member with Choice Hotels, I was given a room upgrade to a room with a big whirlpool bath in it. The check in and service were great. I had a breakfast voucher which paid for a nice freshly cooked breakfast the next morning. Great restaurant right at the facility. Nice... More
