Beautiful old inn

Stayed two nights in a 3rd floor room with two beds. Large bathroom with clawfoot tub. Breakfast included eggs made to order and homemade bread. The historic inn is furnished with antiques. Annapolis Royal is a beautiful historic town. Go to the Farmers Market if you have a chance.

I look forward to visiting again in the future. Such an incredible experience for amazing value, definitely well worth the visit.

Excellent place to stay in the Annapolis Royal / Digby area

4.2 on September 21, 2014

We chose the Hillsdale House Inn over the Digby Pines - we're glad that we did. This is a beautiful inn and was well suited for our needs. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also very good.
