"Perfect if just needing a place to stay before fly"
We just needed a place for one night before flying out the next day. This place was perfect for that. They bring you to the airport. The restaurant was nice.

"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.

"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.

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'!

"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.

"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.

"Fantastic hotel...we'll be back!"
08/30/15 TripCaper Nova Scotia
We stayed here very last minute as we were waiting out a blizzard that had cancelled all flights at the Halifax Airport. We were lucky to get a room, as many passengers were stranded at the airport. We were thrilled when we arrived at the Inn on the Lake! We were given a spacious, well appointed room, and they kept the restaurant open late to accommodate us for dinner. Every staff member was so friendly and helpful, and once the storm subsided, we were transferred to the airport (10 - 15 minute drive) in their free shuttle. We will certainly stay with them again! Highly recommended.

"One night stay - great bath! "
08/29/15 Nikki S Farnborough, United Kingdom
We stayed here on the last night of our holiday touring in an RV. It certainly was welcome to sleep in a large comfy bed! The lake view was lovely. There was a massive whirlpool bath in the room which my 5 year old nearly exploded with excitement about and had a whale of a time in! He now wants one fitted at home but that's another story. I did find it odd that the bath was actually in the bedroom not the bathroom but maybe that's just me! The bathroom itself was very small but adequate and it felt a bit tired. We ate in the gastro pub on the premises and it was decorated and fitted out like a pub at home in England which was quite nice. The food was good and the servers attentive.

"Truly amazing experience!"
08/17/15 Wil C Oakville, Canada
One of the best inns i've ever stayed at! The lobby is stunningly beautiful with lots of antiques but also a nice modern touch to it. The restaurant there was fantastic, reasonably priced and fresh, with a patio that has a picturesque view of the mountains. The inn also has a nice pool, small but quiet and cold, perfect to cool down. Our room, now that was quite the shock, it was really big with 2 floors and 2 rooms. That was probably one of the best hotel rooms i've stayed in because we all had our own rooms and the upstairs bathroom was large, seperate toilet room, jacuzzi and big shower. Not only that but our rooftop balcony stretched about 1/2 of the inn's roof which had a fantastic breeze. Now, if I had to pick a negative aspect, its really hard to get to the pool because you need to go through the front doors and all the way through the parking lot and then in a side gate. Finally, credits to the hotel staff, they're all extremely friendly, helpful and the chefs made awesome food! Thanks Inn on the Lake for such an awesome experience in Fall River, Nova Scotia.

"Average. Signs of decline."
08/17/15 Arie S
Beautiful architecture and location, but it really needs fresh paint. Excellent kingsize bed. Good room, bathroom needs refurbushing. Breakfast, not from a buffet, below what you may expect. Weakest coffee I ever had. There seems to be a policy of minimal investment.

"Convenience over Quality "
08/16/15 NJamesP Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
conveniently close to the airport, just off the highway. We ate in the restaurant with a large group of family members. I've been here a few times and the food has always been very average if not a little disappointing. It likes to give the impression of a fancy establishment but the quality of the food is not great.
Overall Rating
"Convenient but average"
08/13/15 David B London
This is a pleasant hotel with good amenities in a very handy location for us. Situated right by a number of highways it is easy to get into Halifax, Dartmouth, or to explore the surrounding areas, which is probably its best feature. Everything else about it is average, from the room service to the food. The room itself was OK, supposedly an executive room on the 3rd floor. The bed was comfortable but it was let down by the wardrobe, which was single and small and the bathroom, which was cramped with a bath that only fitted my 5 ft 2 wife with a squeeze. Room service let us down a couple of times with a couple of minor things, nothing major, just inconvenient. All the meals we had were OK as well although personally I thought they were on the verge of being overdone. Saying that, the restaurant was very popular with the locals so either they are better than I experienced or it is just the convenience of the place that attracts groups. I know I am being less than exuberant but that is what this hotel is - average in almost every way but saying that, for the position I will probably come back, so it can't have been that bad.

"Wedding Day Nightmare"
08/11/15 ajornitz Lower Sackville, Canada
This is what happened to me, upon arriving at the Inn my bridal party and I discovered the room that was booked 6 months earlier specifically for my wedding day and night was given to someone else. The bad part about it is that the individual staying in my reserved room was there for a month and a half (so says the lady trying to deal with my complaint). So the Inn never called to notify me of this and just let me show up on my wedding day to a room that was half the size! On top of that the only thing they did was give us a cheap bottle of sparkling wine and made us pay for the orange juice! With no other choice I had to take the room and pay for something I did not want. I have called and left messages for management with no success. This has hands down been my worst experience with any hospitality establishment.

Spend the night there if you have an early flight to take. Minutes from the airport, this hotel has everything you look for. Great service, clean, and with a great pub / restaurant on site. Pick a room with a balcony with lake view, pour yourself a scotch and relax. Would recommend this spot to everyone.

"Wow, beautiful spot."
07/31/15 KBFAFC Waasis, Canada
Spent two nights (July 26 and 27) at this awesome Inn. We has a King Suite on the third floor over looking the lake. We were met by two great ladies at the front desk who made the check in fast and easy. Our room was very clean and huge. The bathroom was a bit small but very clean and modern. Even though there is no elevator the steps are easily taken and they offered to have our bags taken upstairs. The grounds were awesome and a great place to relax. The gazebo does need some paint. We will definitely return for another stay.
