Lovely Inn in a lovely town.

The staff at the Inn were welcoming and very helpful. The choice at breakfast was very good and the staff serving table were very pleasant. The town of Annapolis Royal has lovely gardens, interesting local history, fun evening activities and good restaurants. Well worth visiting and the Inn is a lovely place to use as a base.

We stayed at the Inn as they offered a whale watching package and had a great experience with them. The rooms and food are great but the staff is exceptional and were so helpful when we needed to change travel plans and so accommodating. The stay at the Inn was on of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommended.


Charming and Serene Inn With Wonderful Service

Our stay was lovely from start to finish. Beautiful large room with handsome historic furniture. We arrived with a flat tire. The owners were very accommodating of the large flat bed tow truck that articled to take away our vehicle. A caution to other guests who visit this area: all tire shops are closed at noon on Saturday. We didn't let the flat tire spoil our stay. The gorgeous Hillsdale House was a welcome respite. We will visit again soon.

After considerable online research with our plans to visit Annapolis Royal for the Wine & Roses Garden Tour at Historic Gardens, we decided on Hillsdale House for our 2 - night stay. Our room in the Carriage House (# 11) was quite spacious & conveniently located to the dining room. Breakfast service was outstanding & the wait staff very, very friendly. Loved it!!!

A beautiful place to stay

We were warmly greeted by Val when we arrived, shown our room, and provided lots of information regarding things to do and places to see in the area. Room was quiet, comfortable and peaceful. The grounds to the place was beautiful. The home is a nice walking distance to the beautiful town of Annapolis Royal. Breakfast was superb. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.
