“Had a wonderful dinner here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Special occasion by invitation only. The history and hospitality was amazing. I can not comment on the standard visitation but I think it would be a good way to get some information and history.

“Poor Service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

I'd hate to tell you not to go but I must be honest with our experience. It was the last day of tours for the season and the tour guide was chatting with a officer of some kind for over 20 min while we waited patiently in the waiting room. We couldn't wait any longer, as we were heading back to ontario on that day, so we politely excused ourselves and left. Not a very good experience, Though one I doubt would be repeated.

“The Lieut. Governor's Mansion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We visited this beautiful 3 storey old stone mansion on three occasions, the last being a New Year's Day Levee hosted by the Lt Gov himself. There was a huge attendance by families and well wishers from all walks of life. We were treated with hot apple cider and a delicious seafood chowder followed by home made chocolate cookies. You also had a tour of this lovely mansion
adorned with Xmas decorations and live music. The old and historic pictures on the wall are amazing as well as the gorgeous antiques through out.
We plan to attend again next year for sure.

“Beautiful house and architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Just walking past you can sense all the history that comes with this beautiful property.
The inside is very much in the time period of the early days of Fredericton. The grounds are quite lovely as well!
