“Wonderful Stay!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We had a wonderful stay again at Hillsdale House and this time we attended the Fall Harvest dinner. Everything was top notch and as usual Val and Paul we the perfect host and hostess. We always try and stay in a different room on our visits and have pretty much enjoyed the majority of them at this point.Breakfast is one of the best, if not the best, we have had at a B & B. We will definitely be back.

We were directed to this wonderful B & B by the mistake of our GPS and were very thankful that we were. As soon as we entered the premises we were greeting by a very friendly and accommodating Val (found out she was from Saskatchewan as well). We wanted to stay for 2 nights but she only had a room for 1. With our luck again, she moved us the second night to a bigger suite at the same price. Everything at this Inn made me want to run one! The dining room was very cozy and the servers so polite. Val and Paul made you feel at home. You could actually could go into their kitchen and grab a muffin or have a chat. Val gave us everything we needed to know about the sites and restaurants of Annapolis Royal. We attended the Graveyard Tour and would highly recommend it. We especially liked the story about the rivalry between the Hillsdale House and the one across the street (the sister’s). I would most definitely stay here again. Job well done Val and Paul :-)

We stayed at Hillsdale House Inn for two nights, and enjoyed both the town of Annapolis Royal and the accommodations very much. It was a bit out of our way, but well worth the trip.
Val was there to welcome us on our arrival, and she gave us a quick rundown on the town, including great recommendations for restaurants. We found that Annapolis Royal is blessed with good restaurants.
Our room was clean and comfortable, as well as being furnished with lovely Victorian antiques. The spacious home is Victorian, with beautiful wood paneling - some ornately carved, and period antiques.
Breakfast was ample and beautifully presented.

Room Tip: Our room was in the annex, first floor. Our entrance was direct from the parking lot, and we did not...

Our stay at Hillsdale house in mid-september was a step back in time. We booked a day before arriving and got a last minute special. Val and Paul were very hospitable and gave us information about things to do in the area. Our room was charming and breakfast was outstanding. Hillsdale House is located within close walking distance of the historical garden, Fort Anne, the cemetery and the shops and historical sites of downtown Annapolis Royal. At Val's suggestion we participated in the graveyard history tour which was very interesting and informative ... we learned a lot about the history of the area.

Room Tip: Our room was on the third floor which was fine for us but might be tricky for some guests.

The morning of an overnight stay at the Hillsdale House i woke up with a bloodshot eye. I was anxious. The proprietors referred me to quick medical treatment for what turned out to be just an irritation. Then they went out of their way to arrange a wonderful whale watching experience complete with the saving of a whale caught up in ropes from a lobster trap. They even offered to pick up a prescription so I could "make the boat." They could not have been more helpful and the accommodations and breakfast (don't miss the muffins) were just what I hoped for. I recommend without qualification.

Very comfortable, high standards, good service and helpful staff. Good value for money. Easy walking distance from the town centre. Lots of character etc. I recommend this Inn for your stay in Annaplois Royal.

Room Tip: Just look at the clear Hillside House website. Little or no traffic noise on the front.

I travel up to that area for work and always stay at Hillsdale House Inn. The owners are great, and the breakfasts are amazing. Fresh berries, homemade muffins, good coffee, and everything is delicious. And the owners are really helpful. They will give you good suggestions on what to see and do. I was there hoping to play some music, and they found a jam session for me! They went above and beyond. My room was really nice too. This I had the one with the big windows (may have been the old carriage house?) Really cozy, comfortable room. Thanks Paul and Val!
