We stayed two nights at the Hillsdale House and were very pleased. The service was friendly and breakfast delicious. After the second night we had to leave early to catch the ferry to New Brunswick and we were given a sack breakfast to take with us. Thanks so much!

This is a beautifully maintained historic inn. Rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Extensive grounds are well maintained and a delightful spot to spend a few hours reading or relaxing in the shade. Staff was helpful and friendly. While far more enjoyable than a modern hotel, be aware that this is not your typical B&B experience. The breakfast room has many separate tables, so different parties rarely sat together and had little interaction. For us, meeting other travelers is one of the reasons we choose to stay at B&Bs, and we missed that experience at Hillsdale. Breakfast itself was good, but a bit unimaginative by B&B standards. Overall a very nice place, and we definitely would stay here again.

Thank you for your comments and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry to hear that our dining room and breakfast menu did not meet with your expectations. Our inn has 13 guest rooms and is classed as a Bed & Breakfast Inn; with that in mind we have arranged the seating in our dining room to accommodate both the Inn traveller and the Bed & Breakfast traveller. We provide several tables that accommodate up to 6 guests for those that choose to interact with other guests and then smaller tables for 2 for those travellers wishing to experience a more intimate setting. Our breakfast menu starts each morning with fresh baked muffins and two made to order options. Each morning we offer homemade Nova Scotia brown bread toast, eggs any style that you choose, Ham or Bacon. In addition we provide an alternative option that may consist of Belgium Waffles, Orange French Toast, Buttermilk Pancakes or another seasonal options. We feel that providing guests with an option is an important component of our service.

My husband and I came to Annapolis Royal to golf. Staying overnight at the Hillsdale House Inn was a very pleasant experience. Our room had beautiful old world charm but included a modern t.v. The breakfast, which was served in a lovely dining room, was delicious. The owners and housekeeper were a pleasure to deal with. I would definitely recommend this B & B to anyone.

Such a great place to stay! A great deal and the service is amazing. So clean and the breakfast was delicious. Homemade warm muffin in the morning made the stay. The room was very romantic and the soaker tub was a huge bonus. Will be going back for sure!

Stay included the Stuart MacLean show at the King's Theatre. It was a terrific value and a great show. The hosts were most helpful in offering to make dinner reservations in order for guests to make the showtime of 7:00 pm. Breakfast was excellent as always. Highly recommend the Hillsdale House Inn.

We stayed only one night at the Hillsdale House Inn, but we would have loved to stay longer! Val and Paul greeted us with friendliness and warmth, despite the fact we arrived on Thanksgiving in the middle of their preparations for a family gathering. Our room and washroom were both spotless, and included complimentary amenities. The location was excellent, within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. A wonderful experience overall and definitely worth a return stay.

Hilsdale House is a Beautiful property located in the pleasant town of Annapolis Royal. The house is perfectly maintained with expansive garden just minutes walk from the Rose Gardens and restaurants and shops. The rooms are comfortable (loved the bath) and nicely decorated and breakfast was served in a formal dining room with 8 of us around a table, which made for some very interesting conversation. My only two caveats were the softness on the matress and the a/c closing off the bedroom window which made it necessary to cool the room when opening the window would have sufficed ... Lovely property in a lovely location.

We only booked one night in Annapolis Royal and wished we had booked at least 2. The town is charming and very easy to walk. We enjoyed the Saturday market and checking out the water front along the paths at Fort Anne. The room at the Hillsdale house was beautiful and quiet. We had our one year old daughter with us and they were very accommodating. Breakfast was probably the best of our week long Tay in Nova Scotia, the muffins were delicious. I would highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed two nights in mid-Sept. The house was in a terrific location to explore the public gardens, the fort and town. We were given dining suggestions that were right on! Our room was spacious and comfy. The breakfast room was complete with English china and silver and each guest was offered a choice of two delicious selections, as well as homemade muffins. The ladies working the kitchen were especially friendly. I would recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to the area.

Hillsdale House Inn is absolutely wonderful and we really enjoyed our two days. A great location for walking around Annapolis Royal. The grounds are well landscaped and offered a great place to meet others, and sit and have a glass of wine before going to dinner. Our room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were attentive and friendly; Val provided great recommendations for dinner, and breakfast at the Inn was much more than we expected. We would highly recommend the Hillsdale House Inn.

Hillsdale House Inn is a wonderful place to stay! My husband, grandson and I enjoyed this beautiful home and the very warm welcome from Val and Paul. Our room was beautifully decorated (and recently renovated), the bed was very comfortable, and the amenities in the room were a nice addition. Breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent. Val gave us a lot of suggestions for things to do and places to eat. She also gave us an early breakfast on our last day so we could make the ferry on time. When we inadvertently left two of our grandson’s jackets she was kind enough to mail them to us! Annapolis Royal is a town steeped in history and a most interesting place to visit. However the hospitality at the Hillsdale House is what made our visit to the town such a special and memorable one!

This is the second time we have stayed at Hillsdale House while visiting Annapolis Royal, and both times we have found it absolutely wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully furnished, the breakfasts terrific (fresh local blueberries and home-baked muffins when we were there), and the ambiance green and peaceful. The backyard has plenty of Adirondack chairs for sitting around in; the last morning we were there, I saw a doe and her fawn grazing right on the grounds. We'll stay there again if we get the chance.

A wonderful experience at this old mansion. We stayed in the top floor of this house and enjoyed the surroundings and view and the quiet. Interesting grounds to wander and the town is a nice attraction too. We have stayed at other B & B's and the breakfast at this one was good. Given the size of the place which I believe houses 17 guests, it is not as intimate as some of the others we have stayed at. This is a positive and a negative as some people are not " morning people" so there is no need to be social when you dont feel like it. But the option is there to sit at a group table if you wish. One of the highlights of our stay was the Graveyard Tour which started at 9:30 and went to around 11:00. This took place just down the road and is not to be missed. A fascinating collection of stories and background on the Acadians was provided by the leader...an Acadian himself who was well versed in all aspects of history. We also had supper at a great place as well. Compose Restaurant offered a good selection of options to chose from.

The thing about Hillsdale is that while the property is quite grand and formal-looking -- a huge Victorian house, surrounded by a vast lawn -- you can actually feel comfortable and at home. Breakfast was very nice each morning, and included in our rate, which made it a genuine bargain, too. Loved being walking distance (practically next door) to the Annapolis Royal gardens. The hosts were super-nice to our kids. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful place. The staff are wonderful and the breakfast is very good. However, this is one of the smaller rooms and very cramped. However, it is the cheapest room. My rating is of the mattress in this room. It was the worst mattress my husband and I stayed in during our weeklong trip to Canada and we stayed in more modest and cheaper places. The mattress was like a trampoline., very soft, squishy and you could feel every move each other made. We clung to the sides to keep from rolling into each other. I suggest it be replaced.
Respuesta del propietario
We are most disappointed to learn that these guests found the bed to be uncomfortable. When it comes to mattress comfort preferences very and we have in fact had other guests comment that they slept very comfortably in this room, some of whom are repeat guests who choose Room 9 specifically. With regard to the room size, the reservation was made through our online reservation system where we do indicate that it is a smaller room. It is also one of our two lowest priced rooms taking into account the size. The room does however offer all of the same amenities as other rooms in the Inn.

We loved this experience. The Inn was wonderfully cared for. The breakfast was exceptional. The furnishings throughout were thoughtful. Perfectly located within walking distance of all there is to see and do in the town. The challenge here is where to eat dinner? The Inn has a cross-promotion with Garrison House..but their food was seriously unsatisfactory and the service was beyond bizarre.

We picked this place from the NS tourist guide and (because it was late in the day) we got the last room (in the attic and hence the 'met my expectations' for the room). But what a great choice of B&B this was! Attentive hosts in a lovely house in a lovely town. We strongly recommend it.

I was one of a Theater group(G&S) performing in Annapolis Royal. Unfortunately, we didn't have much time at the Inn but next yr will book for a longer stay. Was a fabulous Inn and the breakfast was heavenly! Slept like a baby in that wonderful queen size bed. And the staff were welcoming and accomadating. Made u feel like u were coming home but in much grander surroundings. Have recommended it to others in our theater group for next yr and some friends who are travelling that way. Enjoyed thouroughly.

Hillsdale House Inn is a charming place, bringing you back in time to the 1800's. The service was friendly, the breakfast was excellent in the most beautiful dining room. The property was huge, with nice outdoor seating if you wanted to. It was located on the main street, so easy walking to many places. The bathroom was huge and the room a good size. My only negative comment is the bed was too hard. I wouldn't think anything of it except someone else said the same thing in the morning. I would go back there if I had the chance.

My husband and I stayed at the Hillsdale House Inn for one night in September, 2010. Paul and Val were extremely welcoming and attentive to our needs. Without us even needing to ask, Paul informed us of the town's best restaurants and informed us of events and attractions that we might be interested in. As the Inn was not busy on the night we stayed there, Paul even upgraded us to a larger room (again, without us asking). The Hillsdale House is a beautiful inn, and the owners' attention to detail and customer service is excellent. Highly recommended.

Their recommendations of where to visit and eat were perfect. Breakfast was sumptuous, with excellent coffee! We shared a large table with 2 other couples, which made it very enjoyable. We had the smallest/cheapest room, which proved to be very adequate. We would have enjoyed another night here!
