As soon as Fred answered the door, we could tell right away we made the right choice. Marion and Fred made our stay feel like we were at home. Their home is the true flavour of the Maritimes, warm, comforting and most of all a feeling of family. Marion's Breakfast are delicious and served everyday with a warm and honest...

Wanted to find accommodation near Alderney Landing for the ferry to Halifax and chose Blockhouse Hill because it is only a few minutes walk from the ferry. When booking, there were cordial e-mails offering assistance with aspects of holidaying in Nova Scotia. Marion's warm welcome when we arrived set the tone for a very enjoyable two-night stay. There are two...

Traveling solo for over two weeks, my time in Halifax was something I was really looking forward to. Blockhouse Hill B&B and my hosts Fred & Marion did not let me down. Allowing strangers to stay in your home takes a lot of trust and an inviting personality. I was comforted knowing I was only a stranger for about 5...

This was our first B&B en route NL. Fred and Marion, our hosts, certainly treated us like family. The place is very clean and comfortable and Marion's breakfasts were the best. Our guest sitting room, close to the bedrooms, was a good place to relax at the end of the day. Coffee was delivered to the sitting room at 7am...

Very friendly and helpful. Fred offered to drive us down to the restaurant that wasn't a 10 minute walk. Place is located close to the ferry terminal. Our flight was cancelled by Air Canada without any warning and we lost a day of vacation but they didn't charge us for the extra night we missed even though we didn't have...

The Blockhouse is a one of the most comfortable, welcoming and friendly B&Bs I have ever stayed in - and that is a lot! Fred and Marion are charming and entertaining hosts and Marion's breakfasts are a star attraction on their own.
