Having driven all around southern Nova Scotia, this (formerly) railroad-owned inn is THE place to stay (unless you are broke). A lot of it is somewhat depreciated, which would get it a rating of three stars, but the coolness factor is a five, so four is the net. Some of the reviews say that there isn't entertainment here but I... More

Breakfast, lunch and dinner were amazing. Excellent seafood options and great service! Love the view of the basin from the restaurant.

Good breakfast but lunch and dinner a bit disappointing. Chicken sandwich should not contain bones! Fairly limited choice on both lunch and dinner menus. Dinner prices probably overpriced. Hostess and servers were lovely.

Chef Dale has done it again! The most incredible buffet including Lamb, Halibut, even Smoked Shrimp! Awesome! A wide selection of dishes, hot and cold, International salads, just a myriad of excellent choices. Then there is the "Temple of Desserts"! Excellent value, fine dining experience, beautiful setting, perfect location!

Beautiful grounds, exquisite dining. The staff are very attentive. It is like being brought back in time with all the charming allure. Golfing at their course, facial at their spa, swimming in their beautifully scenic pool are just some of their must dos!

The Sunday Brunch at the Pines is something I look forward to every summer. The food, the setting and the service is great. I was a little disappointed with my last visit because they had none of their usual cheesecakes! Not that I need it! :-) We could not get a reservation until 1 pm so perhaps there was some... More

If you are looking for a restaurant that gives you a special meal this is the place. Fine dining with special combinations,sides and flavours. Delicious food, fresh, and something to please everyone. Beautiful atmosphere, service was a bit slow, but this is a dining experience not a eat and rush out Place.

Cuisine this is not! The food served here is not restaurant quality. Rather it is as if they are operating as a cafeteria with waiters. There is just no way anyone could seriously recommend this as a place to eat.

My server was able to bring me gluten free bread, and confirmed the first 2 courses were gluten free when asked gor a double check. But come the entree, they served up a plate with flour-battered potatoes. Clearly they have not grasped the gluten-free concept.
