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.
Thanks for taking the time to share your impression of our Inn with others. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, and we hope you will return sometime soon.

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!
Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you plan to return. Thanks for taking the time to share your comments.

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.
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with others. We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed your experience and hope to have you back with us very soon.
