Great Hotel

Spent 2 nights here with phenomenal views over the harbour to watch cruise ships arrive and depart. A spacious room where everything worked, coffee available in foyer and a really good breakfast room up the hill for our large group. Spectacular views.
Checkin worked well and staff were obliging.

This is a great hotel the room was clean and a good size. The view from the room I had was amazing. The hotel is set up on a hill allowing for beautiful views of the ocean. The staff was very helpful providing golf cart rides up to the Lookout Restaurant which required walking up two very steep hills. Most of the people in our group were older or handicapped so this was of great need to us. I would defiantly love to go back in the warmer months.

This was our third time at the Blue Nose and we loved it! The view from the balcony is superb of the water and islands. The fireplace is a cozy touch. The room is spacious and attractive. The highlight is the pianist, Bill Trowell, who has played at the Blue Nose for 18 plus years. He is one of the most talented people we have ever met. He plays by ear and can play EVERYTHING from Willy Nelson, Billy Joel, Phantom of the Opera, classical, classics like Moon River, etc. We went to the great room to hear him four nights. It is worth going to the Blue Nose just to hear him. This is one of our very favorite hotels anywhere!!

Lovely hotel!

High on a hillside overlooking Frenchman's bay The Bluenose Inn provides a quiet respite form the busy but tourist burdened downtown. The Looking Glass Resturant is quite good and a welcome change form the lobster shacks. The Grand room provides a warm setting for a quiet drink to to enjoy the nightly concert. Rooms are spacious and well fitted. The Spa has a fine heated pool and weight room. Certainly worth a return
