We chose this hotel for its position on the lake but also close to the airport for our flight home. The room was large and spacious with a 2 person whirlpool bath in the bedroom and a large walk in shower in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. Tea and coffee making, a fridge & a balcony. 2 small... More

When we arrived at the hotel our room passes we were given did not work, so they issued us new cards....which did not work. Their handyman Ryan came up and reprogrammed the door and then one of the two cards worked. (Ryan was a cheery, competent gentleman who had helpful information regarding getting to the airport.) The rooms were clean... More

My compliments to the chef!! I was totally impressed with the caliber of the meal I had! The presentation and taste was equal to any fine dining restaurant around the world. I had the seafood casserole with a beautiful and light puff pastry top. There was even a small piece of pastry shaped like a lobster sitting right in the... More

Dear Guest, We are very sorry for the noise issues you encountered during your stay.

Wonderfully accommodating front desk staff. The room was beautiful and very clean. The tub is a woman's dream. It takes awhile to fill but so very very worth it. Ordered room service which was fast , hot and yummy (Natchos and clubhouse. Deep fried ice cream and strawberry shortcake). WThe grounds and beach are beautiful and lovely to walk around.

This Inn is close to Halifax airport but when you wake and have a lake view you could be anywhere. The rooms are spacious, traditional but have all the modern day facilities that you could ask for. Food in Oliver's bar and in the main restaurant is very good, the service and ambience is great.

Stayed here on our way to a graduation in Windsor. Very quick ride down in the morning. This Inn is actually well suited for shopping in Halifax and Bedford areas yet you still feel like you are away from it all. We had a terrific room with fireplace and view of the lake. After of few hours of shopping we... More
