"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
"Inn on the Lake, Halifax- so near, yet so far"
Great place to stay near the airport that doesn't feel near the airport! Complimentary shuttle every half hour-on time & easy. Very nice location on a lake that we wished we had time to enjoy. Beds were very comfortable & staff very friendly. Bartendress was great to engage with us, ended our vacation to Nova Scotia on a great note! thank you!Genuine Hotels.com 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.

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

Had nice stay - 2 nights. Convenient to Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, etc. Staff very friendly & helpful. Nice room. Beautiful lake area, unfortunately couldn't enjoy due to bad weather. Area lacks restaurants.
"Lovely, convenient Lodgings"
07/12/14 jennetj Chicago, IL
A flight that landed at 11:30 at night was a motivator in booking a hotel closer to the airport than to downtown Halifax. It was a smart decision, as it made a good jumping-off point for our day-trips. The staff was friendly, our room was large, clean and well-appointed with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Although there is no elevator, the second floor rooms are only half a flight up from the lobby. The property is on a lake with a private beach, although there's more pebbles than sand. We had dinner one night in the restaurant, sitting on the covered patio, and it was gorgeous, with good food. The only minor downside was that the pool was too cold to swim in comfortably, even on a hot day.
"Most excellent evening."
07/12/14 JandBRare Worcester, England
Four of us sat down on the deck Friday evening 11th. July, for a most excellent and enjoyable evening meal. The quality of food and the service was superb and a great night was had by all. I can highly recommend this eatery, and we will return on our next visit to wonderful Nova Scotia. Well done Inn on the Lake.
"Money over Customers?"

On 7/3 UNITED cancelled our flight due to severe weather conditions so we couldn't come and use our one-night reservation with this hotel. While the flight being delayed and later cancelled I was keeping the hotel front desk in the loop - by calling them on each update. So the hotel was aware we wouldn't be able to come and stay, and it was simply no way to make to Halifax that day after the only direct flight got cancelled. However the final cancellation notice came from UNITED 1 hour 40 minutes after 4 pm Halifax local time (per the hotel policies at 4 pm a reservation becomes non-refundable). Both ORBITZ and myself felt that there was no fault from my side though, and asked for reimbursement. ORBITZ representative spoke to the hotel twice 7/3 and 7/4, but the supervisor (Susan N.) refused to refund the amount I had paid ($152). I was also told by the front desk it was the owner's decision.
"Food was excellent!!"

Did not stay at the Inn although it looked like a very nice place to stay. We celebrated our Grand Daughter's Graduation with a nice supper and I was pleasantly surprised at the awesomeness of the service and quality of the food at their restaurant. There was eleven of us so we had a variety of meals ranging between fish, steaks, pasta and more. None of us had anything but praise for the quality and taste of their food. The deserts were delicious and tasted home made. The service was great.. We had our own private area where we stayed for over 2 hours enjoying a few laughs with family and friends. Will definitely eat there again and also recommend it to my friends. If there is one negative thing to say it would be that we got there an hour early and they would not accommodate us even if it did not seem all that busy at the time.
"Will come again!"

What can I say about this inn. The value was great, fireplace in our room, great view of the lake. The concierge was so helpful, and the staff at the lounge were more than accommodating. I recommend this hotel for anyone traveling through Nova Scotia.
"Nice location, clean rooms, friendly staff, and excellent food."
06/17/14 Curtis J Shelburne, Canada
Surprised my wife with a night here with the Romance Renewed package the day after our wedding. It was a lot closer to the Halifax Shopping Center and Bayer's Lake than I had imagined, only about 15 minutes with light traffic. It was also a lot quiter than I had expected considering it is right on the highway. The room was very clean, which I expected but was still pleased with. The jacuzzi was nice, as well as the complimentary champagne we had gotten as a congrats gift. The staff was very friendly, always making sure to greet us and to ask how everything was. We ate at Oliver's, and the food exceeded my expectations (a teacher when I took culinary arts used to talk about the place a lot, and had good things to say.) I have a minor allergy to sweet potato (which I didn't mention when I ordered the twice baked potato with my meal) but the server was very pleasant about it when I asked for another side to replace that. . My only complaint, which isn't much of a complaint, would be the coffee maker in the room. I would highly suggest an upgrade to a Keurig or Tassimo in at least the deluxe rooms. All in all it was a great stay, I just wish the weather had been warmer so the pool could have been open or we could have gone swimming in the lake.
"Very competitively priced - great value."
06/12/14 World-Traveller-one Toronto
Stunning location marred somewhat by highway traffic noise, but I knew about the highway location before booking. Easy check in and a comfortable room that was nice and clean even though it showed some - to be expected - wear and tear. My two encounters with the dining room (tea and desert, taken out to the lake front and breakfast the following morning) were more than satisfactory, both in terms of service and quality/taste/price. Would not hesitate to return at the price I paid; at maybe even a little more. Also the cleanest hotel bathroom I have seen in a long time.
"Very nice experience........."

I stayed here one night on business. As a Diamond Member with Choice Hotels, I was given a room upgrade to a room with a big whirlpool bath in it. The check in and service were great. I had a breakfast voucher which paid for a nice freshly cooked breakfast the next morning. Great restaurant right at the facility. Nice place to stay.
We have become regulars at the Inn on the lake over the past number of years and stop there when ever we can for a great meal or on a number of occasions to spend the night.The one thing i can say about the Inn on the Lake is that we have never been disappointed with the staff or the food.The staff is very friendly and and only to willing to help.The restaurant has great food and the salmon and steak take second place to none.We would highly recommend the Inn on the Lake for a comfortable home away from home stay or for a great meal with someone special.
