“Beautiful, Friendly, Comfie”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We booked at the last minute and the owner was very gracious. We were there in off season and had the house to ourselves but the other building was booked. We received vouchers for a beer at the local tavern. The owner was very helpful and friendly
It been renovated with period furnishings and is lovely in every way.

This place could do with some maintenance outside as well as inside. I felt like this place was shabby and not restored like other b&b's that I have stayed at. The owners are nice and breakfast was good. The homemade cookies in the lobby were an excellent touch.

This was our favorite B&B (out of a total of 5) from a recent trip to Nova Scotia. Heather and Thomas take great care, without overdoing it, in looking after their guests . They made, and cancelled, dinner reservations for us, and we ended up having a light meal at their table. Breakfast was especially nice, served in a sunny glass enclosed area. The whole place has a good feeling, that is both upscale and comfortable The hosts provide a little personal attention if you so desire.

The rooms in this Inn are lovely however the grounds are very unkept and this dampens your arrival and if you want to spend any time outside. Piles of wood, over turned wheelbarrow greeted you as you parked your car. Our room was very clean and comfortable except for a faulty air conditioner. This became a sore point for us as this was a very expensive room and we were lectured twice once with a bang on our door at 3pm to tell us to turn it off and how we didn't know how to work it. I think at 153 a night plus tax we should have had a unit that didn't ice up and then not work properly but the new owners were experts and made sure we were told. Very unpleasant experience and a first for us. Breakfast was mediocre as the French toast was under cooked and it was the same menu each morning. Not returning for sure.

We stayed at Tatttingstone Inn for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding in Berwick. Heather and Thomas were wonderful hosts, very welcoming and hospitable. The rooms were immaculate and the beds were extremely comfy. We were greeted in the morning by Thomas and Heather as they prepared a delicious breakfast for us in a lovely sunny room overlooking their garden. They were both very helpful with any advice and info we needed during our stay. We would definitely go back to Tattingstone Inn and lovely Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

We stayed here for two nights. Like our previous location [Digby] this had 10 rooms but it had the personal feel of a B&B and didn't feel like a small hotel. This reflected the involvement of the owner, Thomas, who was very friendly, spending time chatting to guests and helpful both with advice about the area and providing cups of tea/coffee when needed. Our room in the Carriage house just across from the main house was medium sized, clean and comfortable. The guests in the adjoining room had a dog staying despite the website indicating no pets. It didn't disturb us but we would have preferred not to have it around.
Breakfasts were tasty and well presented in nice surroundings. This is a good base for a very attractive town [Wolfville] and surrounding area. Free wi-fi though I had to stand at the window to pick up the signal.
It was a bit pricey and this would be the only thing to make me think twice about returning.

Heather and Thomas were so wonderful! We felt very welcome, but not intruded upon. Our room (room 1) was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. The bathroom was small and had a missing shutter, that was my only complaint. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, as were the cookies in the cookie jar! We felt quite pampered.
