We arrived in Halifax in the evening and did not wish to travel too far on our first night of our Maritime vacation, so booked this spot. They offered us a two bedroom suite instead of the two separate rooms that we had booked. We accepted their offer, and found the suite to be very clean, well maintained, and our...

Have been here for a meal which was lovely Attempted to go for coffee and maybe a snack with my daughter who lives in Fall River. We were quoted an expensive price to sit and have coffee. It appears to me that mon residents are not as welcomed.

We stopped for lunch at this lovely inn just outside Halifax and got more than a very good lunch. The grounds were beautiful and we found ourselves plotting a return visit. The Staff could not be more courteous or helpful. The dining room was light and cheerful with splendid views of the lake. Even in September the meticulously groomed grounds...

We chose this inn based on it's proximity to the airport and positive reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Front desk service from booking over the phone to check-in to check-out was friendly and efficient. The decor is warm and inviting, the grounds well-landscaped, and the rooms clean and well-appointed, providing a lovely alternative to the airport hotels,...

The Inn on the Lake was the perfect location to host a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for my parents. The location on the lake is absolutely beautiful with a lovely gazebo and deck for an outside event. The Banquet room was the perfect size for dinner for our 45 guests. Even though my husband and I live in the US,...

Ranging in ages from 13 to 94 we all enjoyed a fabulous dinner in a small room with closed french doors. Excellent service and the rack of lamb was perfection. Weren't rushed and we all enjoyed the relaxing and sumptuous experience.

We had a group lunch here and I was surprised to have rice w/ the haddock. Ice tea was too, too strong and a lack of ice seems to be how beverages are served here too. Meals here will do in a pinch. Nice people and good service.

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely supper together at this quaint gem on the lake. The seafood linguine was perfectly prepared with generous potions of scallop and lobster. The atmosphere, the service and the drinks all exceeded expectations. We will return.

Really enjoy the hotel and the grounds there. Very picturesque Our room was clean and updated with a lovely balcony and chairs and table to enjoy the evening.

After staying at many hotels over the last 3 weeks, this was quite disappointing. From the cluttered lobby to lack of elevators to rooms reminiscent of Granny's house. Our bed was saggy, as were the sofa & chairs from the 80's. Bathrooms are extremely tiny with no ventilation. Morning coffee to go was $5.60 for 2 small cups. It was...
