My three friends and I spent last weekend at Lakelawn Motel. We were met by a cheery Mathew who kindly upgraded our room from one with two double beds to a larger room with two queen sized beds for free upon our arrival. Also, earlier that morning when we had called to book a reservation, he gave us a small discount when we mentioned that we were students. What a lovely man! Our stay was delightful. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was equipped with soft towels, and there was even a mini-fridge to store our beverages. He recommended a delicious restaurant where we ate dinner, and told us to ask for a specific server who would surely serve us well. In the morning when we checked out, he had coffees waiting for us to-go! When I return to Yarmouth I won't stay anywhere else. Thanks again Mathew for your exquisite hospitality!

Room Tip: For a group of four, it was definitely better to have a bigger size room. The room we shared with th...

Mathew made us feel at home from the minute we walked through the door. We booked this B&B for the location and the great price, but were very pleasantly surprised by the service. The supper was AMAZING - more like a fine dining restaurant, and the breakfast the following morning was just as good. The room was pleasant and comfortable, and a great price for what you get.

Mathew also had some good advice for places to visit, and things to see. A charming host!

We spent Easter Weekend at Lakelawn Motel. We stayed in the main building B&B and the room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Matthew was always there when we needed something, had a question or to suggest where/when we should check something out. Breakfast for AMAZING and kept us full until supper time. We will definitely be back and highly recommend the Lakelawn Motel.

As we were anticipating to be extremely late getting in from Halifax, Matthew at the Lakelawn went out of his way to accommodate us as the office closed at 10PM. He left the lights on, the key where we could find it, and extra pillows. The rates were very reasonable and the room was cozy and warm. The shower/bath facilities were excellent, wonderful shower stream, the bed very very comfy and he offered us coffee in the A.M. There is a better than continental breakfast offered and he also offered us tons of information regarding the area and tourist rights. We had never visited Yarmouth, N.S., but it is first-class wild and wooly part of N.S. and should be advertised much more in the way of attractions. We attended the "dumping day" ceremony at the Cape Forchu lighthouse to see the blessing of the lobster boats on their way to dump the lobster pots. It and the accommodation was the best. Matthew was so friendly and helpful. We would recommend staying here before considering any other place in the most southern point of Nova Scotia.

My husband and I stayed at the Lakelawn Bed and Breakfast Motel from Nov 3rd to Nov 11th. We are frequent travelers and always research on tripadvisor before we plan our stay. Thank you to all the previous posters as you helped us find a fantastic spot in Yarmouth. Matthew, the owner, was wonderful from the start. My husband first talked to Matthew on the phone when we booked and was impressed with his willingness to help. This historical property is located on Main street and the building is set in far from the street. The main house is a Bed and Breakfast with a charming elegant dining room with a wood burning fireplace that sits a maximum of 20 people. Our room was off the main house with 2 comfortable queen size beds, a futon, television, free WiFi, desk and chair, fridge and microwave. The bathroom was small with a small shower but there was always lots of hot water. There are baseboard heaters on each side of the room which kept us warm and comfortable. The rooms are basic but one thing that I am very fussy about is cleanliness. The place was spotless!! The maids were friendly and changed our towels daily and tidied up our room. It is a small hotel with great customer service. If there is anything you are not happy with, approach Matthew who is always on the premises and he will try his hardest to make your stay enjoyable and accomodate you. We have never experienced this kind of warm personable service even in a 5 star chain or resort hotel. Matthew is genuine. Our most favorite part of our stay was Matthew's cooking! Matthew is a chef who trained in Edmonton and has owned several restaurants before coming to Yarmouth. We had a delicious breakfast every morning and had a wonderful dining experience nightly by the fireplace at the Lakelawn Cafe. The Cafe is opened everyday except Sunday. Reservations must be made as the restaurant is staffed accordingly. You do not have to be guests to eat at the Cafe everyone is welcome as long as you make reservations. While attending an event in Yarmouth, we met people from Western Canada and they dined with us at the Lakelawn Cafe twice during our stay. They were as impressed as we were by the amazing food, selection, atmosphere and staff. They were staying at one of the chain hotels in Yarmouth and wished they stayed at Lakelawn. Actually one of the other couples we met moved over to Lakelawn Hotel for their last night after dining with us at the Lakelawn Cafe. We would like to thank Matthew, Valerie and Linda for such a wonderful experience. You spoiled us and if ever we are in Yarmouth we will not hesitate to stay and dine at the Lakelawn Bed and breakfast Motel. Please see my review of the Lakelawn Cafe.
