This was an overnight stay on our Atlantic Provinces trip as we were hoping to take the ferry to PEI in the morning. The lady at the desk was very nice and the room was fine for a night. Unfortunately, we could not get on the ferry in the morning. It's kind of a weird situation there. We wanted to... More

The Lionstone Inn was a great spot for a rest. The friendly staff and the room we had a little cottage with one double bed which was so comfortable, three piece shower and a wicker chair and coach very cute. The cottage was very clean and well kept. The grounds were beautiful, very well maintained. Free coffee in the morning,... More

The room we stayed was very clean and roomy for the four of us. I would recommend the Lionstone Inn for a great clean place to stay if your in the Pictou area. Great stay... More

Close to grocery and tim Hortons. Clean... I was annoyed that the room was charged in advance of our arrival, must have missed some fine print. Beds were hard, noisy and tip if you sat on the end. No toiletries provided. A quirk we discovered was if you are in the shower, and happened to touch the curtain rod, a... More

We do not dismiss any review and investigate and correct each and every legitimate short coming. As previously promised, we had an electrician check out your claim and they did not find anything. Our tubs and showers are completely made of acrylic which does not conduct electricity. Furthermore, you spent two days with us and never mentioned a thing. You... More

We stayed here for one night. It was a quaint very clean room. We had an air conditioned room. An added bonus was the kitchen in the room. For the price this was an excellent choice for us. If you are looking for top class this is not you but for a quaint vintage room this is perfect. The grounds... More

We stayed here for a few days of our East Coast Road Trip. The Lionstone Inn is right off the round about, right before heading in to Pictou. Near a Sobeys, Tim Hortons and a Visitors Centre (which also has Logan's Fish Store for fresh lobster and other frozen seafood). We stayed in the little red cottage. It is a... More

We stayed here while attending a family reunion in Nova Scotia. The place is very clean and very friendly. Just a short walk away for subway/sobeys/liquor store. The kids loved our cottage for the weekend and so did we.

Pictou lodge was full, so we decided to stay at the Lionstone Inn. On the outside, the cottages looked cute, the price was really good, and there were great reviews. On the inside, the bed was a soft double, the couch was uncomfortable wicker, the ceilings were stained, the paint was peeling off the walls in the bathroom, there was... More

We only stayed one night, staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was pretty small, beds are only double so for 2 people is pretty tight. Clean room and bathroom. It does have a kitchenette with all you may need if you want to cook. The only reason we stayed there is because we were taking the ferry to PEI... More

My sons and I stayed in a cabin and loved it. We had moved to town and our home wasn't closing yet..The owners were generous with their attention and the cabin was a perfect place to rest after traveling for two days.
