After a long day of driving, I happened upon the Inn. The building was unique. As the staff told me it had been added onto several times over the years. I quite liked it. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was very good. My room had a lovely view overlooking the river.

Thank you for staying with us and for writing this lovely review! The sunsets are so lovely on the Mersey. I should correct that your room has 2 double beds, however we do have rooms with king, queen and suites, too! I hope that you enjoyed Keji Park! A pleasure to meet you both! Susan

We have stayed at this place a few times. Having the rooms, a fabulous restaurant with frequent live music and a lovely gift shop on site makes for a very enjoyable experience. We always receive great service. Rooms are well appointed and have personality, the Inn itself has a history. Food in the restaurant is varied, freshly cooked and good...

The room was very comfortable, spacious, clean and with a gorgeous view to the waterfront. The hotel overall is very charming, has a little boutique with food and books for sale. Breakfast was included in the price and it was delicious.

This is the best overall place we have stayed in many years travel in Canada and the US.The accommodation in the old house turned Inn is top notch. From the very friendly staff to the beautiful room and amazing location we enjoyed every minute of our 2 nights. We enjoyed both of our dinners and the home cooked breakfasts were...

This is a hotel that used to be a privateer’s location. The hallways are narrow, the rooms quant, and the bathrooms are small. Some would call the bathrooms charming, I would call them in need of some work. The shower did not drain and the distance between the counter, toilet and tub was not more than 1/2 meter radius. Overall...

Where do I begin?? This place is superb! The room was spacious and very comfortable. Came with a mini fridge too! The bed was relatively comfortable. The ac was ductless and very dependable! It's right in town and you can walk to the little downtown area and even walk to the lighthouse just past the town. We went to nearby...

Yum. The fish and chips are crispy. The fish is fresh. The fries are very tasty and obviously home made. The setting is nice with a view of the harbour (from the lounge). The staff are great and consistently deliver prompt friendly service. Definitely worth a visit.

This was our second visit to Lane's for a late afternoon lunch. We ordered a couple of pints and relaxed on the charming patio. I had the haddock burger with a cup of chowder which was served in the teeniest side dish I had ever seen from any resto. Almost laughable in it's size. My partner had the burger and...

We were passing through on our way to the yarmouth ferry and decided to do a night at the inn. It's a historic house on the pretty mercer river with a full bar and restaurant on the first floor as well as a gift shop. The room was clean and comfortable (we got a king) WiFi was strong and free....
