Beautiful Inn with very pretty grounds right in the middle of Annapolis Royal. Lots of room for guests to relax both indoors and outside on the porch or the lawn. Very conveniant to shops and restaurants, the beautiful historic gardens and other attractions. Hosts are very helpful with suggestions. While we were enjoying breakfast the Town Crier came in and...

Lovely historic hotel and great welcome, but our room was the smallest "double" room we've ever stayed in and should have been a single room - there was only a couple of feet either side of our queen size bed, there were no drawers or wardrobes and not even space to put suitcases. Sadly disappointed.

The room referenced in this review is indeed one of our two smallest rooms, which is indicated in the room description on our website and other websites that promote our property. In all of our guestrooms we provide a dresser and/or closet/wardrobe. The size of the room is also considered in the fact that the room rate charged is the...

The Hillsdale House Inn is an impressive building - its just gorgeoous! Huge, gracious public lounges and sizeable gardens with plenty of seating are available to guests. Sadly on a one night stop-over we didn't get to avail outselves of all this luxury. We needed to leave at 6.30 a.m. to catch a ferry from Digby. Welcoming, friendly and helpful...

We stayed at the Hillsdale House on our way from the Digby ferry to Halifax. Arriving in the afternoon, we were warmly welcomed by our hostess, who showed us to our elegantly decorated room. We left the car parked at the Inn for our entire stay. As she suggested, we visited the Historic Gardens before going to dinner at the...

We stayed here just the one night en route to Halifax from NB. It's a great house, a credit to the owners who keep the interior in immaculate condition (but that section outside over the porch needs painting now!!). We stayed in a very nice suite with a comfortable bed and en suite (though having to shower in a bath...

I have had the good fortune of staying at B&B's around the world and I would rate this one right up there with the very best.

Excellent hosts who treated us very well throughout our two night stay in one of the front bedrooms with four poster bed. They customised our breakfast to more than compensate for our dislike of eggs. The garden is a great place to relax, read and plan for travelling on. Annapolis Royal has plenty of places of interest ranging from very...

The property offers an estate setting on 12 acres of land with mature trees, manicured lawns, and fine gardens.
