The hotel is located in the countryside between Mahone Bay and Chester. It's a good vacation hub to do day trips up to Peggy's Cove and well past Lunenberg to the south.
The staff, rooms, restaurant, scenic views were very good. As a family of four, this hotel worked wonderful for us. We would definitely recommend this to friends/family!

My wife and I spent two fantastic nights at the Oak Island resort. We found it to be a very good hotel, that was both comfortable and convenient to many of the local attractions in that part of Nova Scotia. The hotel staff was very kind and courtious [as are most people in Nova Scotia] and helpful in any of our needs. Though the view of the bay and the ocean beyond is what we enjoyed. Request an ocean view room and you will not be dissapointed. We spent one sunset, enjoying it from the hot tub in the glassed in pool area, fantastic.

My husband and I just got back from a very fun weekend at Oak Island.
We went for our 5th anniversary. We didn't quite know what to expect from the Murder Mystery weekend. We arrived at 3pm, got our room right away. It was your basic average hotel room. Everything worked, it was clean, that's all we cared.

We went for supper in the hotel's restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere, but not much selection on the menu and a bit pricey. The wait staff was superb. Food was really tasty. After that we wandered the hotel lobby and lounge, which are homey and attractive. At 9pm, we went to the wine & cheese reception. We each got a free glass of house wine, which tasted a little like rotten vinegar. :) That's okay, it was FREE. After that we got into our groups and everyone introduced themselves. A little into the evening, we got to meet the cast of actors who would be entertaining us. They were excellent. Things started happening right away, clues being dropped every few minutes or so. Each group got a booklet of clues to start with. We had to mingle in the crowd, asking questions. One of the actors tried to pick me up, which I found amusing. He had given me a clue when he did this. Later in the night someone was murdered and it was all nuts from there.

"Duck Soup" was a blast. It consisted of relays and songs and a dress-up thing. The winning team got a big clue.

At each meal the cast of characters gathered and basically fought and accused each other. We got to talk to them and ask questions. It was highly entertaining. Another person wound up dead, and then we went on a scavenger hunt around the premisis for clues.

The buffets were really good. Not many choices but the food was delicious. Wait staff was prompt and friendly. The kareoke dance on Saturday night was kind of tame until a murder happened right in the middle of it. On Sunday we had to prepare a theory and present it. If you win you get T-shirts and certificates.

What a memorable weekend. We met lots of interesting people and had tons of fun. This is a MUST for fun-loving people who like to make new friends and enjoy a little intrigue. We want to go again next year! Oh and sorry for thinking it was you, Angelo, you Italian Stallion. :)

Rain forced us (2 adults + teen) to abandon our camping holiday and spend 3 nights here. The first 2 nights were in a junior suite which was very large, had a small fridge, and good value for $159 canadian.
the last night we switched to a car park view room which was small, lacked a fridge and less good value at $109. Lesson - check the rooms first if you can. Neither had an ocean view but you can easily manage without this as the bar, restaurant and an open deck overlook the bay - which is fabulous. The dining room was too expensive for us to eat in and its true that the staff seem very over stretched, especially when a big coach party arrives (which seems to be often). However the recreation is really good - nice pool, hot sauna, mini golf, tennis etc (tho only one court so can be frustrating if high demand). best of all there is a good marina offering fishing trips, kayak rental, bike hire etc. they offer an excellent value picnic lunch which we took with us in kayaks and ate on a deserted island. bliss! my son also thought the mackerel fishing was the highlight of his holiday. we would like to have stayed longer and hired bikes as there is a nice coastal trail to nearby towns, which are very interesting (especially mahone bay).
