“Great local treasure”
Reviewed November 15, 2007

Catching up on posting some reviews for older hotel stays.

We thoroughly enjoyed a few days stay at the King George Inn in Annapolis Royal. Having never been to this town before we came into the village after a long drive and noticed all the old historic Victorian homes. Much to our surprise and pleasure the King George is one of these local treasurers!

We were greeted by the innkeeper who attended to our every need. She was keen to share her knowledge of the area with us and help us with planning our daily activities. Surprisingly there is plenty to do right in Annapolis Royal that you can even walk to. One night we joined a haunted graveyard walk that was quite the experience!

Breakfast is served in the house's formal dining room and was a great start to the day. On our last day there we needed to depart very early and we were specially prepared something to take along with us on our way.

We had the opportunity to stay in two different rooms - which gave us an even better taste of the inn. As pictures can sometimes tell a thousand words - you have to stay here in person to get the feeling for the real experience as a picture doesn't do it justice.

We agree most whole-heartedly with all the positive reviews. You will remember this B & B!! Faye is fun and her dog is very cute. She immediately made us feel welcome, and treated us like royalty, way beyond any other B&B we've stayed in ever. If you stay in Annapolis Royal, you'll love the King George Inn.

Grand Victorian amongst others on the main street of historic Annapolis Royal. House full of Victoriana. Appropriately and comfortably furnished halls and rooms. Scent free, non smoking policy. Large room, comfortable bed with luxury bedding. Private bath immaculate. Full breakfast in formal dining room. Well educated owner former gym/calculus teacher turned bed and breakfast manager/owner/interior decorator/entrepreneur. A hoot to stay here. Would recommend to others as a fun experience and a good value.

I loved visiting Annapolis Royal's historic sites, took a night tour of the old cemetery, visited the hydroelectric plant, visited the special gardens, had a very pleasant meal in the friendly pub next to the farmer's market. Would recommend Annapolis Royal as a must place to visit time and again. Rich in important history and historic preservation is strong here providing a charming, sedate atmosphere to experience.

  • Liked — Location, price, the experience, full healthy breakfast
  • Disliked — Front steps needed painting

We spent two nights at the King George Inn in Annapolis Royal at the end of July, 2006. The Inn is very beautiful, well maintained and within easy walking distance of historic areas and restaurants in Annapolis Royal. The innkeeper, Faye, is a terrific hostess! She called both of us by name when we arrived, walked us through the rest of the inn in addition to showing us our room and gave us the chance to select the time we wanted to have breakfast the following day. Faye has to be the friendliest, most helpful innkeeper in Canada. She gave us great advice on places to visit and willingly makes all necessary reservations for her guests.

Although the inn is located in an old historic building, our room was very up-to-date with a nice sized and modern bathroom. Faye's breakfasts succeed in achieving the rare feat of being both very healthy and very tasty. Fresh raspberries and blueberries, homemade jams, homemade muffins and homemade granola were available as well as hard boiled eggs, delicious pancakes and an assortment of cereals and yogurts. Faye found out that my wife prefers Diet Coke in the morning so she made a special trip to the store to make sure my wife got her morning Coke fix.

  • Liked — Very charming Inn with a great innkeeper
  • Disliked — no complaints at all
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't skip breakfast

We had the opportunity to stay at the King George at the end of August for 2 nights. We were treated like a King and Queen. Beautiful house full of antiques . Very quiet . We were treated to a sit down breakfast both days and were asked every evening at what time we would like to have breakfast. A bit of the history of the Inn was told to us while we ate. Our Innkeepers Faye and T.C. (the pup) were both very entertaining... We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Inn to anyone wishing to learn about the history of the King George Inn and Annapolis Royal Area plus also enjoy having a host that is very witty and shows lots of humor... We will return !

We were looking forward to our stay here but ended up calling the travel agency to get a different accomodation. We were made to feel very unwelcome. Children need not apply. The hostess used foul language with me - enough said. She was very condescending when I was asking questions about the house rules such as when is breakfast served. She also made a rude comment about the amount of luggage we had which was totally unneccesary. We would not recommend it at all. We couldn't get out of there soon enough.

We were driving along the Evangeline Trail and happened to stop in the town of Annapolis Royal. We decided to spend the night and spotted this huge house that was a B&B. Turned out to be one of our best finds on the whole trip. A great house, with a fascinating history, and a great host, Faye (and a very cute little dog, as well!).

Great decor, comfortable rooms, right near town, and nice breakfast spread. I'd definitely go back!
