Dolans was a great experience where there were a couple very small hiccups which were handled very fast. Check in- they changed the location of the office for all 10buildings you could stay in so after going into the first building had to go 3 houses down the street. Not a major inconvenience but they should update their signs accordingly.... More

We stay here only one night during our trip of 4000 km. Place is a typical Canadian house with some beds to sleep. House is clean and quite. Very comfortable. There is no possibility to use kitchen to cook something.

My friend and I were travelling to PEI and decided to spend a few days in Pictou to meet up with family. So we booked a few nights in Dolan's and we're not disappointed. When we arrived we were upgraded to a fantastic apartment by the water with every convenience we could wish. Two bathrooms, big living space, massive tv... More

Stay here often while in Pictou County on business, usually just one and two night stays. Nearly every time I'm upgraded to a suite, and if the higher end one's are free they will often move me there. Service is always impeccable from the housekeeping staff, to the manager to the owner himself. Better than all the road warrior motels... More

Our previous night was spent on the ferry and we were exhausted. We Googled hotels about 1/2 hour before driving into Pictou and the lady who answered was so helpful. The room at the inn was great. Immaculate, spacious, comfortable and affordable. Thanks for the Nova Scotia hospitality! :)

We stopped at one of the Dolan properties and called the number on the door. We were told to go on in and have a look at the suite. It was lovely but a bit more than we needed. She then told us to go to one of the other properties and have a look and if we liked it... More
