We had booked in here for our first two nights in Canada and it was easy to find, driving in the dark from the airport. The gardens are lovely with loads of birds on the feeders and we saw deer in the evening. If you book the room on the ground floor, it is an good idea to ask (as... More

The house and the hosts are wonderful. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome; provide us with what we needed; and get a restful sleep. Our flight required us to leave at about 4AM, yet they found a way to leave us breakfast. That's pretty cool.

After a long day of traveling, this was a great place to stay near the Halifax airport. The house is historic and lovely, the grounds are spectacular, and the breakfast was hearty. While not a destination on its own, I would definitely recommend staying here as you begin your travels in Nova Scotia.

Nicely located near the Halifax airport, but not much else going on nearby. The house is a beautiful historic house and our room was wonderfully spacious. We were disappointed because they advertised air conditioning but they only turn it on when the owners feel the season has started. The hot tub also wasn't up and running yet. Breakfast was ok...

The Briarwood is a place of exceptional quality. Small, historic, situated off the main road amid acres of green space filled with deer and pheasant, it provides a gentle transition into or away from one's holiday. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the baths modern and the overall atmosphere quiet and relaxing. Breakfast is prepared to order. Clusters of garden seating... More

I arrived late at night and the owner picked me up and returned me to the airport the next day. I was very impressed with the entire operation. Like many B&B homes the furniture and decorations were quite special. Breakfast was ample but not quite as unique as I sometimes encounter. The owner has a fair amount of land and... More

Thank you for staying with us... we appreciate the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay.. Always nice to hear. Just a note that the shuttle is only $20. which seems very reasonable as it is at any hour and the cab is twice the cost (if they arrive in time) . A lot of guests stay the... More

I booked a one stay stay at the Briarwood for myself and my daughter as we were flying in from the UK and needed a break before the 4 hour drive north. We were thrilled with the room, the bed was really comfortable and the decor lovely. Breakfast was excellent and one of us needing gluten free was no problem.... More

Briarwood Bed & Breakfast isn't waterfront, or close to a Metro area but is is a beautiful property within 30 minutes of downtown Dartmouth or Halifax Nova Scotia only 15 minutes away from Stanfield Airport very easy to find, and a terrific place to spend a layover or getaway well equipped and comfortable excellent breakfast and friendly staff
