I read the Scottish lady's review after booking our room and became a bit concerned that we would not enjoy our stay there, but we were quite pleased with the whole experience. This is the second B&B we have tried in the Pictou/New Glasgow area.
We found the interior to be nicely decorated. The hostess was very polite and accommodating to us and our young children. Our room was modest but clean and nicely decorated; better than most hotel rooms we've experienced. The continental breakfast was simple yet satisfying (toast, cereal, etc.) and she offered a cooked breakfast for $5 if one was so inclined.
We visited the web sites of every B&B in the area we could find and e-mailed or telephoned them all. We got the best price and among the most pleasant communications from Sam at the Auberge Walker.
I might also add in contrast to the other review that the stairs were fine by us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Please ignore the picture of the wrong hotel on Trip Adviser it is NOT The Scotsman Inn! We have told Trip Adviser many times they are showing the wrong picture but they won't change it. I guess they like giving people the wrong information! Please look at owners photos to see the REAL Scotsman Inn! The hotel was built in 1865 as a family home and business. It is a historic 4 story brick and stone building located in the heart of Pictou; yet only 2 minutes walk to the water front, museums, the ship Hector and the marina. Shops and restaurants are right outside the front door. The rooms are furnished with period furniture, artwork, and hand made quilts. All have full bathrooms en suite, free Wifi, and flat screen cable TV. Our rates include a free continental breakfast and private off street parking. We are happy to help with anything to make your stay more enjoyable. From dinner reservations to route planning. Just ask! ... more less
