"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.

"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'!

"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.

"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.

We stayed two nights in mid-June. Short drive from the airport and just off the main road. The staff were friendly and helpful. We dined at the hotel and the service and food was very good. No doubt seen better days but overall we were very happy with our stay and it was a good positive start to out travels further north.

"Nice"
07/19/15 weeksvillejoe elizabeth city, nc
We checked in late on Sat night after Delta airlines managed to make us miss our flight and cost us a day of our vacation. We were tired, frustrated, and generally cranky. The motel restaurant was closed, like everything else in the town. The motel doesn't have an elevator, and one of our party has knee problems, so we were prepared to be really disappointed. But the way the hotel staff handled the situation changed everything. The desk clerk (Mary, I think) carried the bags for our friend, and the stairs turned out to be only 5 steps high. The bartender, Kaeleigh?, was wonderful. She made us drinks and listened sympathetically to our tale of travel woe. She was very helpful in helping us order pizza delivered to the room, and was a wealth of information. The rooms were nicely appointed, with a fridge and microwave, and individual balconies. The beds were very comfortable. The only issue we had was that the a/c thermostat was intermittently troublesome. The motel sits on 4 acres, and has a small private beach. It is NOT out in the woods. It is within a few hundred yards of a four lane highway, but we never noticed any traffic noise, even sleeping with the sliding door open. We were on the side away from the highway. There is a pool, but it is too close to the restaurant for swimmers wanting a bit of privacy. The restaurant was very good. A huge breakfast was included with the room, but we ate here for two dinners as well. On Sunday afternoon there were lots of locals eating there for a nice dinner out. Room service is available. The menu is varied, and includes escargot, fish and chips, and the best French onion soup I have ever tasted. The hot wings were a disappointment, in that they were over breaded and over cooked, but overall it was very good. I would definitely stay and eat here again.

"Nice Place, Great Location"
07/16/15 KellyKD Vancouver, Canada
We stayed here 2 nights in early July. We wanted to be close to the airport for an early flight out, but also close enough to Halifax so that we could enjoy the city. This place was a perfect location for us. One thing I didn't realize before arriving is that there is no elevator - it was okay for us, but should be something you know if that would pose a problem. Our room was lovely and we had a balcony. It was quite noisy out there because we were facing the highway and were above the pool but once inside with the door closed we couldn't hear a thing. We had a lovely breakfast using our breakfast voucher, otherwise it may have been a bit pricey. The service was terrific and the front desk folks were very helpful. We enjoyed our stay here. Also quite close to a shopping area with Wal-Mart, Costco, etc.

We had a reservation for a deluxe suite with a jacuzzi, upon arrival they told us that there were none left even though we had reserved one over the phone with them directly. After this I asked "what is the point of a reservation if you don't get what you asked for?" They replied, "It's been busy". They did not offer any compensation for their mishap nor an apology. They said "It is what it is." The hotel although beautiful has lost my business due to this.

Renovations to our home finally hit the critical stage, forcing my wife and me to look for alternative accommodations. We had enjoyed eating at Inn on the Lake on various occasions but had not stayed at the inn. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and cleanliness of room, as well as the overall atmosphere. It is so nice to know that we can now recommended Inn on the Lake to anyone looking for comfortable accommodations right in our neighbourhood!

"A high quality gem that has to be experienced if you visit the Halifax area"
06/19/15 dave37 Ottawa
The Inn on the Lake has everything. Very spacious, comfortable rooms, immaculately clean and well maintained, quiet and warm. Individual climate control and ours had an electric fireplace, bar fridge and microwave. You feel at home here. Spacious park grounds including a small beach and raised wooden gazebos and lots of cozy spots with beach lounges and deck chairs to relax. A small creek runs next to the Inn and while we were there trout were feeding and spawning in the creek. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We did not encounter any employee whom we would not commend for their professionalism and courtesy. There are two restaurants. A warm, welcoming, beautifully decorated dining room Encore. We had several meals there and every meal was exceptional and a very good wine list. Prices are quite reasonable yet the quality and care of the dishes is truly exceptional. I have only had food this good at a hotel that cost several times more than the Inn, both for room and dining. Oliver's is the pub style dining room and is a lively, fun spot but with the same quality and value of the menu. It is a short drive from Halifax/Dartmouth and is worth the trip for the dining, and well worth staying there if you plan to spend some time in the area. We stayed for a week and had a wonderful stay. The small town of Fall River is just up the road and has anything you would need yet you are close to Halifax-Dartmouth. We will be visiting again and do not hesitate to highly recommend the fine people at the Inn on the Lake.

"Check in cost this hotel one star"
06/17/15 Wayne W South Windsor, Connecticut
Upon arrival I walked in to the check in counter and the one person there was on the phone taking a reservation. She did not acknowledge me nor did she make an effort to let me know that she'd either be right me or put the phone on hold and address me. Upon ending the long phone conversation she finally decided to address me. By now I was getting heated up a bit. She makes no comment about my lengthy wait and starts the check in process. I stop her and ask if she thought she might apologize for my wait and her reply was that it's been a long day. I informed her that I'd had a long day too. Where do they train these people? I might understand the rudeness a bit more in the States, although not tolerate it any less, but Canada still prides itself on its courtesy and hospitality. Once getting through the check in and several kicks in the leg from my wife, I cooled down a bit. The room was excellent, warm and inviting. Nicely furnished, clean, cozy, comfortable bed, soft pillows, nice private balcony overlooking the pool and lake. The hotel has a nice feel about it. There is no elevator, but there is help with your luggage if needed. The restaurant is excellent too. See separate review. Make no mistake that I am over rating this hotel because of any guilt, on my part, during check in. I tell things the way I see them. No better and no worse.

My husband and I recently spent our wedding night at Inn on the Lake on the recommendation of family and friends. I cannot express how wonderful our stay was! The service that was provided by all of the staff that we encountered was better than what I have experienced at any other hotel; we especially appreciated the champagne, truffles and card that were left in our room. We have been praising your hotel to anyone and everyone that will listen since our return to New Brunswick. Thanks so much for making our day that much more special.
