"Best nearby airport hotel in the Halifax area!"
The Inn is a lovely and friendly place to stay. Would love to spend more time there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful stay"
Our first time to NS was wonderful. The hotel was beautiful and convenient. The rooms were larger than we expected and the balconies overlooking the lake were a perfect place to sit and visit into the night. Breakfast the next morning was great. The food excellent and the staff was friendly. It was an excellent adventure. We hope to return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay. Close to the Halifax airport"
This was our second stay at Inn on the Lake. Both times were great. The rooms are nice and the staff is friendly. There are a few places to eat on the property which makes it very convenient. The food is quite good. The atmosphere at the inn is pleasant as it sits on a lake. Very much above your average airport hotel. Give it a try the next time you […] are flying out of Halifax.

"Last night in Nova Scotia"
Selected the hotel for its proximity to the airport and the water view. It was recently remodeled and very comfortable. Our room had fireplace which we were surprised to find we would need in May, and really enjoyed it. Only stairwell access to 2nd and 3rd floors, but help is available for bags. Checked in and receptionist was most gracious in ensuring […] she found just the right room to meet our needs. Small pub downstairs for dining but nothing special and we chose to drive downtown to take advantage of great seafood restaurants in Halifax. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic cookie-cutter hotel from the 70's or 80's"
After days in super-friendly B n B's the formality and bureaucracy at the front desk was a let-down. Fine for a one-night stay enroute to another B n B ;-) Decor is dated so interesting to be 'back-in-time'!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charming decor and beautiful view of the lake."
Loved walking around the lake and grounds. Thoroughy enjoyed our visit and plan to return soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"building with charm"
Close to the highway is a drawback but other than that this hotel is high class. And the restaurant is very well run. The meals here compare in price to the Keg, but the quality is higher. Excellent meal !Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable Hotel with Character"
Very nice, clean, attractive hotel. Would probably be very nice in Spring/Summer/Fall. Friendly service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Last night in Nova Scotia"
After spending a glorious 3 weeks around Nova Scotia we stayed at Inn of the Lake the night before we flew home.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Inn on the Lake, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member Dear Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Expedia. I really appreciate the nice comments and hope to see you again in the future. Sincerely, Ron Nelson Innkeeper
Even though it is right off the busy highway the grounds are very peaceful on the lake with a gorgeous little stream. I regret we didn't have more time to experience the restaurant- the menu looked very promising!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Inn on the Lake, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member Dear Nicole, Thank you for taking the time to review us on Expedia, I appreciate the nice comments. I’m happy to read you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you will get a chance to come out this way again to try the restaurants. Sincerely, Ron Nelson Innkeeper
Enjoyed our stay. Food very good. Room comfortable. Nice to have free shuttle to the airport. Over all-excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall very nice stay. Excellent restaurant on premises. We arrived several hours before allowable checkin and were able to check in early. Close to airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms in the hotel were very clean and comfortable. The food and bar were excellent. We used the hotel as it was close to the airport, had we known how good it was we would have stayed longer. The hotel is central to many tourist destinations around HalifaxGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place for few nights getaway!"
This place was a nice clean place to stay with plenty of amenities. We stayed here for two nights right after our wedding. It was nice and relaxing complete with double hot tub right by the bed and an electric fireplace. Would recommend to anyone else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, convenient, and very pleasant i"
We used this hotel on the last night of our visit since it was close to the airport. Very clean, comfortable and convenient with courteous, helpful staff. Although we did not use the restaurants on site, we thoroughly enjoyed the room service and highly recommend the Farmer's Breakfast!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Restaurant and lounge were great, fantastic atmosphere. However, restaurant overlooked the pool, so, we didn't do any swimming plus it was very small. Hotel was very close to highway, so could be loud if you wanted peace and quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent service. Great room. Love the 2 person tbs in the roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Boutique alternative to Chain Hotels"
Nice alternative to the usual chain hotels. A little out of the city (Halifax/Dartmouth) but a fairly short trip. Very friendly and accommodating. Pretty good value for money. Restaurant/bar food pretty good. Good selection of local microbrewery beer on tap.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
What a beautiful spot. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very large and comfortable. It was a great way to start our visit to the East Coast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Blomindon Inn Review"
Gorgeous Property, food was excellent, room quaint and very clean, bed uncomfortably hard and pillows less than satisfactory.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely the place to stay"
The staff were very knowledgable about the area and were very helpful. The food at the restaurant is fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed in nice hotels before, but I would have to rate this one as my favorite so far.Genuine Expedia guest review
there for a 1 night stay after travelling all day. Bed was very comfortable and Mary the shuttle driver was extremely helpful. The stairs and lack of an elevator are an issue for seniorsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel, difficult experience"
The hotel is very nice, but I found the front desk staff difficult. My flight was delayed coming in and their shuttle ends at mid night, so I paid $36 for a taxi one way (about a 7 min drive). Then there was a change in our departing flight early in the morning, but unfortunately we needed to go to the airport to rebook and were not able to do so over […] the phone. When I asked if we could return to our room after changing the flight (check out is at 11am and it was only 6:30 am) I was told the shuttle would not come back for us (myself, pregnant, and my 2 year old daughter). So we spent 11 hours in the airport, when I wanted to let my daughter sleep a couple more hours in a bed that I paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"nettes kleines Hotel"
Das Hotel ist sehr schön gelegen und auch die Zimmer sind gut ausgestattet mit allem was man benötigt. Der Shuttleservice hat uns nach einem Telefonat vom kostenfreien Telefon für Shuttle Service nach ca. 15 Minuten abgeholt. Wir wurden von einer jungen , freundlichen Frau abgeholt was uns allerdings veranlasst hat unsere schweren Koffer (23Kg) selbst […] einzuladen. Im Hotel angekommen sind wir auch freundlich am Empfang aufgenommen worden. Man hat uns auch angeboten die schweren Koffer in den 2 ten Stock zu tragen da keine Aufzüge in dem Inn vorhanden sind. Da allerdings unsere Fahrerin von gerade eben die Koffer hätte schleppen müssen, haben wir uns wieder entschieden die Koffer selbst zu targen. Wie schon erwähnt hatte das Zimmer alle Annehmlichkeiten inkl. einem el. Kamin der eine angenehme Atmosphäre erschaffen hat. Auch das Bett war gut, komfortable Matratze und jede Menge Platz(King Size ca. 1,85 breit, 2,1 lang) Das Frühstück am nächsten Morgen war ganz ok aber leider war unsere Kellnerin nicht allzu freundlich. Wir würden unser Frühstück nächstes Mal wahrscheinlich an einem anderen Ort zu uns nehmen aber alles in allemwürden wir das "Inn on the Lake" empfehlen. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Gutes Hotel nahe Airport Halifax"
Gutes, sauberes und ruhiges Hotel ca. 15 min per Auto vom Flughafen Halifax entfernt. Top ist der gratis Shutle zum Airport. Das Hotel liegt nahe einer Autobahn und ist darum nur für einen kurzen Aufenthalt zu empfehlen. Zu beachten gilt, dass das Hotel auf der Strecke vom Flughafen in die Innenstadt von Halifax liegt. Vom Hotel sind es jedoch noch […] ca. 30 min mit dem Auto ins Zentrum. Das Hotel hat ein gutes Restaurant und am Morgen wurde uns gratis Cafe und Muffins angeboten, als wir sehr früh zum Flughafen gefahren wurden. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad lunch food experience"
11/22/14 Ruth G St. Petersburg, Florida
Visited this lovely Inn for lunch recently. For some reason I bombed out with the food !, I ordered the French Dip baguette. I had to return it as the beef was cold and rare. My experiences with this type of sandwich is that it is served hot with a dipping sauce. It came with about 2 tablespoons of a terrible. sauce of some sort. The waitress asked what I would like in its place and the other guests told me their seafood chowder was excellent so I ordered it. Well........it was barely warm (tasty but lukewarm). The waitress didn't come back to see how it was. When the check came, I was charged for the terrible sandwich. Not impressed at all. A waitress said they would do better with the food the next time!!!! Really???? There won't be another "next time" for me at this restaurant. Sorry

This is a very nice local inn near to Halifax. So if you don't want the craziness of the downtown area, with some beauty and quiet, this is your place. The inn is well kept with some very nice decor. Feels like a more personal place than a Hilton or a Marriott. Staff very friendly. Restaurant was excellent. Food is all local and fresh. Chowder was thick and full of seafood. Wonderful.
"Country style, clean, hospitable..."
10/30/14 Pdorgan Newmarket, Canada
Rooms are clean, hotel is defiantly country style.. The room I stayed in had a gas fireplace, I don't know if the all do, and the room was a good size.. I did not see an elevator, so I am not sure but acess if you have mobility issues, you better check with hotel if that may be an issue. There is a bar and restaurant but I didn't use them... Pricing seemed reasonable for quality
"Not Pleased !!"
09/20/14 WTheTraveller Milton, Canada
Stay in September 2014 was not too bad. It sure is an old hotel and right beside a busy highway. We we're given two breakfast coupons with a value of $13.00 each. This was for the so called FREE breakfast. Don't exceed the allotted amount or you will pay the extra. My complaint is that we didn't get breakfast because their PROPANE system was broken. The receptionist/Manager on duty was not allowed to credit us for a missed breakfast and told us to contact the unavailable hotel manager. We have since emailed them with the email address and hotel manager name given to us but they don't even have the courtesy to respond. For a ASCEND hotel this is unacceptable. Choice promotes ASCEND hotels as their high class brand. I have styed at a lot of Comfort Inns at were better than this hotel.
"hard to find in the dark....but worththe trip"
09/16/14 Poppaholdfast Mahone Bay, Canada
great facility....we got a room that opened onto the pool area......supper outside on the deck....a lovely room.......unfortunately there is a noticeable dim from the highway traffic (but that should not be considered a showstopper)
"Outstanding facility, highly recommended"
09/13/14 MaxFubar Ottawa, Canada
Great, helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable room with high quality evident, totally clean with the nice extra touches that rival 5 star hotels. One of the most comfortable beds, excellent bathroom and even the carpet was a pleasure to walk on! Few places have impressed us as much as this hotel. Highly recommended and won't disappoint.
09/02/14 Marny61 Brantford, Canada
We stayed here for one night in July and truly enjoyed it. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and it's so quiet on the balcony it's hard to believe you are near a highway. The restaurant is upscale and has a wonderful selection. The Seafood chowder was so creamy and the Halibut was done perfectly. The complimentary breakfast was a nice surprise. You were able to order anything from the breakfast menu. Imagine my surprise when they had fish cakes with poached eggs and green tomato chow. It was amazing!! The staff are very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again but next time it will be for more than one night!
My wife and I just spent two days at Inn on the Lake while attending a wedding. The staff were exceptionally curtious , pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food in both the restaurant & lounge was very good and reasonable in price. I would certainly recommend this Inn to anyone. I told some friends about this location as they just left on a vacation to the Maritimes and they too have booked two nights at Inn on the Lake as a result of our recommendation.
"Really helpful after a terrible start to our vacation."

Delta changed our departure time by 2-1/2 hours, we arrived at the Halifax Airport at 11:30, found that Priceline had not included any Insurance in their Car Rental charges with Hertz (Added $400) Hertz didn't actually have the Full Size Sedan we had requested. Stuffed 4 peoples Luggage into the rear of a Jeep Compass, can't see out the rear window at all, it is now 12:15, I've paid for all of Yesterday because Priceline reserved the car which we didn't get for the day we arrived so I'm out $140.00. (Reminder to self, never use PriceLine) Arrived at the Inn at 1:00AM. I am a Choice Privileges member so have late check out which was good as we are from Tennessee so it's 2 hours earlier in Atlantic time. I'm Wandering around checking out the breakfast menu at the very nice Inn restaurant when a staff lady, Tammy, approached me and asks if I need assistance. I'm waiting on the other 3 in my party and still mumbling about Delta and Hertz and Priceline and she suggests a walk around the building, look at the lake, and enjoy a nice cup of coffee which she brought me in a takeout cup. Things started looking up, by the time I returned to the inside my folks were at a nice table and Tammy was taking their orders. It was all very pleasant and when I finished I head to the room to shower. My wife used her MasterCard to pay for our meal and it was rejected. I had Called MC the week before and told them were were going to be in Nova Scotia. I was assured by Rahsheca that my telling them I was going on Vacation to NS was not necessary. As the first thing we discovered as we came down in NS was that our Cells did not have an out of States Plan, I went to the front desk, they called the 800 number for MC (Keep in mind my bill at Hertz and the Room deposit at Inn on the Lake, were now in Limbo) The person at MC assured me my card was cancelled. I explained that MC was the one and only card I had brought with me in cast my wallet was stolen, the Young lady assured me they were sending new cards. I said "You are not Listening, I am in Nova Scotia", she said, "I don't know where that is, but I will transfer you to our security department" She did Xfer me, I repeated everything they agreed to reactivate my card through my return to Tennessee date. Through all of this, the only highlight was our overnight at the Inn on the Lake. Everyone was nice, the room was quiet and well appointed, Tammy was a lifesaver. Would stay again in a minute.
"Where to stay"
08/21/14 Dawn R Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Canada
We just love it here. The rooms are clean and neat. The food and staff are amazing. We only had one concern and that was that they said they were wheel chair accessible but it meant using an exit door which you had to get someone to come and open and when you wanted to go to the restaurant you had to go outside and all around the inn to get to the front door. Really wish there was a way to make this better. We would definitely stay here again.
