Just outside of Dartmouth is this romantic property. Every room has a hot tub and most have a fireplace and balcony. The restaurant features upscale dining and please, try the mussels! Theres only two floors so an elevator is not needed. They don't have many rooms so it feels private and walks along the lake are very romantic. My wife... More

Stayed here a few times over the years and it's been consistently good. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the rooms are good, well appointed and you can usually get a good night's sleep. This is not the standard box hotel, even if the details are pretty much the same as every other hotel. Evening meal in the bar andr... More

The website of this hotel looks really nice so as we were looking for a place to go for special occasions and we had to drop friends at the Halifax airport we decided to kill two birds with one stone and try this hotel. We spent one night at this hotel midweek. Check-in was fine but there is no elevator... More

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
