“Better than "the best"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

Azelia is the nicest Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at.
The rooms are extraordinarily well appointed and maintained. Cleanliness is beyond spotlessly clean. The breakfast meals are of theatrical presentation and fantastic quality. And, of course I cannot say enough about the friendliness and warmth Mary Pat and Al are surrounding you with during your stay. Thank you again and again!

There's not much to add to the numerous "excellent" Tripadvisor reviews for Azelia Farmhouse B&B and its wonderful owners. Beautiful setting, top-notch B&B, gracious and friendly hosts, all needs seen to. Clearly the owners have thought about how they'd like to be treated at a B&B. The location couldn't be better -- rural yet a convenient distance from the college town of Antigonish. Whether you're on your way to/from Cape Breton or to/from Bay of Fundy, NB, or PEI, Azelia is absolutely worth a stop. It was the last B&B we stayed at on our trip to Nova Scotia and although we were very positive about all the places we stayed (having researched them on Tripadvisor or course), Azelia was the best of all. If we ever decide to run away, this would be the place to look for us -- we'll definitely be back!

Graciousness practically gushes out of every element of this wonderful bed & breakfast. Mary Pat's breakfasts have an artistic flair that is only bested by their taste; they are the Monet's "Lillies" of food. And if you get rained in for a day, there is a good chance you will be offered homemade oat cakes. Should the opportunity arise, my wife and I recommend you take it.

Azelia Farm was by far the best B & B that my family and I stayed at on our holiday. Al and Mary-Pat were wonderful hosts and made sure that all of our needs were met. You can tell the amount of effort that they have put into their house to make it welcoming to their guests.
Our rooms were great, and came at a very reasonable price. We had the Bee suite which consisted of the twin room (with two twin beds) and the Bee Room (with one queen bed). In our rooms there were televisions, a mini fridge, a full bathroom, coffee maker, air conditioning, juices in the fridge, the list goes on!
In the morning, Mary-Pat brought us up two coffees and set them outside of our room - how sweet!! Our breakfast was amazing! For starters, we had fresh fruit and cinnamon rolls, and then 3 stacked pancakes garnished with fresh strawberries!
The land the house was on is beautiful, all green and well manicured!
I can't think of anything that Mary-Pat and Al could of done better, since they seemed to think of it all on top of having great people skills!
I would recommend this hotel to a friend because it really is the perfect accommodation!!
Thank you Mary-Pat and Al for a wonderful stay!

When booking our trip to Canada, I searched out many B & B s. Since Antigonish was on our itinerary, I specifically looked for something pleasant, comfortable, and convenient. From the moment we arrived for our two night stay, Mary Pat and Al (the owners) went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. From their location in a lovely rural setting to the warm smiles and freshly-baked apple pie, to the fresh coffee delivered exactly 30 minutes prior to a gorgeous gourmet breakfast downstairs in the dining room, to the highest standards in cleanliness, everything about the Azelia Farmhouse was truly delightful. If we are able to visit Antigonish again, we would think of staying nowhere else but at the Azelia Farmhouse with the Connors!

Mary Pat overwhelms guests (in a good way!) with her hospitality, delicious breakfasts and perfectly appointed rooms. She anticipated our every need, including a special early coffee delivery, and we wouldn't hesitate to return if our travels take us her way again. We can only hope that we have the occasion to stay with Mary Pat again! Fabulous in every possible way from the soft sheets to the cozy robes to the in-room coffee. You will be overjoyed that you stayed here.

We can only second the same wonderful experiences that others have had staying with Mary Pat and Al Connors at this exquisite farmhouse B & B. Clearly Mary Pat cares about service and being welcoming to her guests. Her breakfast for us and another couple was the best of several B & Bs we travelled to while visitng Cape Breton. This is a great stopping off point to begin, or end, the Cabot Trail. They are friendly hosts who really care that their guests have a comfortable stay; modern electronic connections for those desiring Internet and satellite TV service are available. Mary Pat is always looking out for new ideas so bring original suggestions! The value for money was unsurpassed. Don't pass this one by.
