“lovely inn, great location, kind hostess”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

We stayed for 2 nights. Had 2 large, comfortable rooms. When I asked the owner/hostess where we could have laundry done, she gave us pillowcases and told us to stuff them with laundry, set them outside our rooms and she would do the laundry. Who could ask for more?

This is an old b and b with a lot of character, including the owner Faith. She has a heart of gold, even though her exterior seems a bit gruff at first.

Would not hesitate to stay there again.

If you love cluttered rooms with antiques with floral patterns, you will love this inn. The two rooms were clean, a good size, filled with antiques and had updated bathrooms. We loved the small balconies of each room complete with table and chairs for early morning lounging. The host was outgoing and had lots of suggestions for sightseeing and going to restaurants in the area. The breakfast was good with rice flour pancakes, cereal, yogurt and toast. The palour has wonderful antiques including a 3D photo viewer and the front door is from the Halifax explosion complete with melted glass parts.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, in the Duke of Edenbough room, and found Faith and the King George Inn to be very nice. As previous reports say, the Inn is lovely and clean, filled with antiques, an easy walk to the attractions in town. Faith will make reservations for dinner for you, gives you advice on things to do and see. Breakfast served both days was the same....dollar pancakes, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh blueberries, muffins, granola served with beverages.

Annapolis Royal is a very interesting little town, with lots to see.... I would recommend this Inn with no hesitation !

We had a simply wonderful time at the King George Inn on our family trip out East this summer. The Inn is a a true Victorian experience right down to the proper etiquette for dining! Run by a retired schoolteacher, Faith, was both accomodating and informative. With the right mixture of humour and good 'ole-fashioned' rules, she makes the stay feel as authentically Victorian as possible.

We started out as guests, and left as friends. We will definitely be back!

We again stayed at the King George Inn both coming and going on our Nova Scotia trip, as it is convenient to the Digby Ferry. It was our fourth visit in all, two in 2008 and two this year.
The owner/hostess Faith keeps a clean and elegant Inn, which was a former rectory and still a lovely Victorian mansion. She spends lots of time seeking out tasteful antiques for well-appointed rooms. We always stay in the spacious and comfortable ground-floor Queen Victoria suite, mainly so my wife can use the jacuzzi. The room has its own outside patio off the bedroom, which now has a roof and it overlooks her verdant back yard.
Faith knows all the sights and restaurants in the area and will also book a whale watching tour for you on Digby Neck. Breakfasts are like sitting in Dickens' Olde Curiousity Shoppe as there are so many fabulous items to view while eating hot pancakes or a variety of other breakfast fare. The coffee is strong and "please use your knife holders," all part of the elegant table service.
Faiith is accomodating to the point that she stayed up one night while we were there to greet guests coming in off a late ferry and I found balloons in my room on my birthday! Wireless internet and cable television kept me busy while the jacuzzi was running.
Trips to the nearby tidal power station, the Port Royal French historic site and Fort Anne are recommended while there.

Room Tip: Keep kids away from some of the nicer antiques

The King George Inn is an incomparably delightful place, beautifully furnished and run by a proprietor straight out of Dickens -- open, thoughtful, considering a guest's every need, humorous and accommodating. We called just on the off chance that there might be space and were lucky enough to pick up on a cancellation. We had a room at the back of the first floor with its own little porch, a jacuzzi and a marvelous Victorian bedroom suite. Every detail was well done, even the bathroom wallpaper. Annapolis Royal is a great place to visit in any case, but if you stay at the King George you will really have an experience to remember. Do go!
