We stayed 2 days in Cabin 20. Although we were not far from home it was the perfect time away from all of the hustle of our regular day to day routine. We have never taken time for ourselves before as life is busy with work, children, grandchildren and aging parents, This cozy cabin was perfect. The outside world stopped... More

If you visit Pictou you absolutely must stay at this hotel! Dennis and Preston are the best example of Nova Scotian hospitality we experienced during our ten-day vacation. They are extremely gracious and helpful. Because of their assistance we were able to revise our itinerary and vist all the places we wanted to see on our trip. Thanks ever so... More

I was recently travelling on business and arrived in Pictou close to 6pm. I would have selected this motel but decided to book at a B&B within walking distance of restaurants. I did drop in the next morning to see a few rooms before leaving Pictou. I was conducting research for my next trip as I was not very happy... More

We had a great stay here this summer! Members of my family rented two cabins and two motel rooms while in Pictou for a family reunion/anniversary week. The cabins were spotless and were equipped with everything we needed. The updates were very well done. We appreciated the air conditioning in our cabin! One of our families had a missing room...

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
