Accommodation was clean, roomy and bed was comfortable. Close to the ferry to Halifax and good little restaurants nearby. Was concerned about the shared bathroom but we were the only guests so wasn't an issue. Breakfast was good, filling, and was different each day. We stayed 2 nights. If the share bathroom is not an issue you probably can't do...

Mr. and Mrs. Evans just couldn't be more welcoming and hospitable. Fresh coffee waiting just outside your door then an incredible breakfast including fresh fruit, warm homemade muffins, jam from their peach tree, omelets etc. They are great to talk with too. Very warm.

Fred and Marion are so welcoming and kind, Fred came and met us at the bus terminal when we arrived, and drove us back to the B&B with our luggage (we took the Metro city bus from the airport, only $3.50 each). Blockhouse Hill B&B is a 5 minute walk to the Alderney passenger ferry in Dartmouth, then a 10...

This place was lovely. Only two rooms that accomodate two people in each room. There is a shared bath and a nice sitting room with TV. Breakfast is absolutely wonderful. Marion is a great cook and she and Fred are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to go there again.

Fred and Marion were gracious people to open their house to us. Once we started talking with them, it felt like we had known them a long time. They gave great recommendations about places to see and where to eat. Marion's breakfast was the best. Her homemade peach jam was to die for. We hope to return to their B...

You can not ask for anything better than the Blockhouse Hill B&B! The accommodations are first rate, the breakfasts are homemade and delicious and the hosts, Marion and Fred make you feel at home! We had the entire top floor to ourselves. The beds were comfortable, nice linens, and very clean. We awoke to fresh coffe and tea waiting for...

We stayed with Marion and Fred for two nights. One at the beginning of our round trip and one at the end. When we first arrived we were already greeted warmly by Fred and Marion, but when we got back the second time it already felt like coming back to see friends. These two are really great hosts, generous, helpful...
