A lovely historic inn. The owner and staff were very helpful. Had a beautiful room with a view of the Pictou harbour. The waterfront view is wonderful. Great restaurants within easy walking distance. Have stayed here before, and will stay again.

8/10 Very good

A very quaint hotel with a lot of history. It was beautifully decorated and has a nice area for breakfast and relaxing. I had a small room by request and it was pretty tiny, but functional. Only one large towel was provided which isn’t great if you want to wrap long washed hair. The bed was quite hard for me.
