“My room was fantastic.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

My room had a huge, comforable bed, a giant whirlpool bath and an ocean view. The fridge was handy and the tv was great. Free wifi supplied gave me everything I needed for a wonderful few days. I would definitely recommend this to friends.

We enjoyed our stay at Dolan's Inn. Our hostess was friendly and welcoming. Our room was pleasant, spacious, and clean. Once we were able to set the right temperature on the air conditioner, the room was comfortable. We never had the chance to ask, but does the little town of Pictou only get 4 channels on the tv? I guess we are spoiled with the many channels offered by our service at home. I was a tad disappointed that there was no soap for the bath, and we were forced to used the liquid hand soap at the sink before we went to Sobey's to buy soap. Thank goodness that I brought my own shampoo and conditioner. In addition there were only 2 hand towels and 2 bath towels in our room. Am I spoiled by the bigger inns and hotels which offer 4 of each? I would have like to have had clean towels more than once while we there also.

Room Tip: Bring your own soap, shampoo, and conditioner.

We had a great apartment for 2 nights. Lots of extras, clean and inviting. Full kitchen, BBQ, and a washer and dryer. After traveling for two weeks we need them. We had the 2nd floor apt, with a wonderful view of the water. The owner Tony could not have been nicer. He came in to adjust the temp., and to let us know about his dogs being around. One was taken into their apt only because he is too friendly. I am not a dog person, but the Shepard was a sweet heart. He just looked in at us and when on his way. I did not feel afraid being around either of the dogs. And that is saying a lot! Lots to do in the area, we are sorry that we only stayed two nights, next time will be longer. Tony made recommendations for meals and sites, all were great!

Room Tip: Dolan's has several types of accommodations, I suggest that you call them and let them know what...

We traveled from Boston to Calais, Maine and then on to Nova Scotia the next day. The Visitor Center at Amherst, Nova Scotia called and reserved Dolan's for us. It has to be one of the best places to stay! We had a studio apartment with our own front porch looking out onto Pictou Bay. There was a full kitchen, queen bed, living room area & a back yard. Accommodations were cozy and comfortable, as well as a great value. We could walk to the center with some excellent restaurants and shops. On the weekend, there was a market with local vendors. We also attended a ceilidh at the deCoste Center which was only a short walk from Dolan's. The owner and staff were friendly, warm & made you feel so welcome. The hospitality of this area is just wonderful. The ferry to PEI is also nearby. Beautiful, amazing scenery everywhere! Can't wait to go back.

After touring PEI, headed to Nova Scotia on the ferry. Very lovely spot in downtown Pictou. Place was very accomadating for ourselves and friends. Can not beat the price! 3 bedrooms complete with pullout couch. Plus was not charged for additional guests. Owner went above and beyond recommending dinner options and ensuring we had everything for our stay. Two thumbs way up!

Lovely bachelor apartment for 2 nights. Not great for sleeping. No curtains/blinds on upper windows so street lights and bank sign shining in all night and through window in door as well. Love getting up early but not when we don't have to, lots of morning light at 0515!
Great bed though! Location is nice- close to water.

We checked in to Dolan's today and because of construction, we were upgraded from a simple room in the main house to a Gold house apartment. Talk about customer service! The staff was friendly and even drove us over to the new accommodations to show us how to get there. The room was bright, airy and clean. Love it!
