“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

The owners, Ann and Larry, have the type of personalities that makes one feel immediately comfortable. In turn, the guests feel they belong as if the house were their own. We strolled the gardens admiring the flowers and later had good conversations with other guests in the living room. Breakfast consisted of four choices entrees, if you could not decide, Ann would serve the "Chef's Surprise". Of the five B&B that we stayed while in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, this way by far the best.

This was our first night in Canada. We arrived from a long flight and had a very warm welcome. The house is wonderful, the rooms are wonderful, Larry and Ann are wonderful and the breakfast is phenomenal! Enjoyed being there a lot.

The owners were extremely friendly and it was good to relax at the end of the day with other travellers in the beautiful living room. My room was the master suite, and while the bed was comfortable, and the room well appointed, my only complaint was that with all the windows it was hard to get the shades to close to eliminate the light. But that is me, wanting a very dark room at night. The breakfast was superb in the morning. Go for the Chef special! You will not be disappointed.

Well done in every aspect of our stay and this made the Tulips and Thistle among the best we experienced in our three weeks in the Maritimes. Anna and Larry's enthusiasm in suggesting activities was great and appreciated. We had no problems there, and their dinner recommendations were excellent. The B&B is fairly close to the highway, so some noise from that, but that is about the only negative thing I could say, and that was minor - not an issue for most people. Al in all, you likely won't do any better in the Truro area.

Beautiful house, Excellent rooms - quiet, clean, comfortable.
Really fun conversations with the owners and other guests.
Great breakfast - fit for a king and queen!
Definitely a great choice to make.

Ann and Larry were very knowledgeable about steering us to the
right places to eat, and provided other information willingly.
So friendly - felt like we had been friends for a long time, instead
of first-timers to Nova Scotia. Great hospitality.

The location was quiet. The rooms were attractive and comfortable, with eye-focusing duvets and window treatments hand-sewn by our talented hostess. The delicious breakfast menu had so many choices that it was difficult to make a selection! Ann & Larry did not scrimp in any manner to provide a welcoming B & B.

Room Tip: Travelers would enjoy any of the four attractive rooms. It would be difficult to choose between the...

We had a two-year-old with us and Ann and Larry were most accommodating. They had toys, a playpen and a high-chair. Our room was spacious, lots of windows, an en-suite bathroom and duvet comforters. We felt at home. We highly recommend this b&b to anyone making a stop in Truro!
