Positives: The staff, service, food, wine cellar, grounds and garden, unique rooms full of antiques, gift shop on the property, relaxed ambiance, and overall quality of the place.

Negatives: There are no negatives here. Cell phone reception in some areas of Wolfville can be low.

Comments: My husband and I just came back from a three month road trip through parts of Canada and the US, from Nova Scotia to Florida to Texas and California. We stayed at a many great Inns, bed, breakfasts / hotels, etc. and sampled a wide variety of quality (and not so quality) cuisine along the way. We have stayed at the Blomidon Inn before and always loved it. But after comparing the food, the Inn itself, (the extensive wine cellar) and most especially the quality of the service and staff to everything else we experienced along our road trip, we can honestly say that from sea to shining sea, the Blomidon Inn is still by far the best. Coming back to the Blomidon Inn after being away was like coming home. Wonderful place.

Positives: Stunning gardens, unique and affordable gift shop, fine dining, good wine pairings, magnificent staff, beautiful surroundings, comfortable rooms.

Negatives: none

Comments: This is the 5th time or so my husband and I have stayed at the Blomidon Inn. We've stayed at numerous other inns and hotels in our many travels, but nothing compares to the 5 Star treatment and quality we receive at the Blomidon. I go there to unwind and relax and when I need to be pampered with excellent service, elegant surroundings, and the best food in Canada. (The wine selection is wonderful too.)

Positives: Great food, attentive staff, elegant atmosphere, gorgeous gardens, unique gift shop, cozy room, beautiful antiques, relaxed feeling.

Negatives: The only negative was that we couldn't find a way to stay longer.

Comments: I took my husband to celebrate his 60th birthday at the Blomidon Inn. After reading a couple of reviews that were less than 100 percent positive, I was a little worried, but when I got there, I was incredibly impressed with the level of beauty, comfort, welcome, and attention to the smallest detail the staff at this Inn gave us. I had purchased the 2 days, one night Romantic Getaway package for a very good price, which included champagne and truffles, one full Captain's Dinner, a nice continental breakfast both mornings, as well as a charming afternoon tea, both days. I could easily have paid more in Halifax at a plain motel, with nothing extra. Within minutes of our arrival, one of the wait staff showed up at our door with a silver ice bucket of iced champagne, elegant glasses and a box of hand made truffles. From the moment we arrived to the moment we regretfully left, our entire experience was positive, warm, relaxing and just made you want to smile. Staff remembered the little things, such as where we liked to sit in one of the smaller dining rooms (the library room), kept my coffee or tea cup filled, ran errands for us, and generally made us feel like we were guests they'd been waiting for, and were happy to see us. The dining experience (we decided to dine there both nights) was some of the best food I've ever had. I can't say enough good about the Blomiden Inn grounds (which are gorgeous, especially the serpentine trail and the fountains and gardens), the staff, the Inn itself, the food and the ambiance. What a lucky find.

Comments: I took my husband to celebrate his 60th birthday at the Blomidon Inn. After reading a couple of reviews that were less than 100 percent positive, I was a little worried, but when I got there, I was INCREDIBLY impressed with the level of beauty, comfort, welcome, and attention to the smallest detail the staff at this Inn gave us. I had purchased the 2 days, one night "Romantic Getaway package" in one of the smaller rooms for a very good price, which included champagne and truffles, one full "Captain's Dinner", a NICE continental breakfast both mornings, as well as a charming afternoon tea, both days. I could easily have paid more in Halifax at a plain motel, with nothing extra. Within minutes of our arrival, one of the wait staff showed up at our door with a silver ice bucket of iced champagne, elegant glasses and a box of hand made truffles. From the moment we arrived to the moment we regretfully left, our entire experience was postive, warm, relaxing and just made you want to smile. Staff remembered the little things, such as where we liked to sit in one of the smaller dining rooms (the library room), kept my coffee or tea cup filled, ran errands for us, and generally made us feel like we were guests they'd been waiting for, and were happy to see us. The dining experience (we decided to dine there both nights) was some of the best food I've ever had. We used to have another "favourite place" in the Wolfville area, but we won't be going back to the previous favoruite because we already know we'd be disappointed. Why go back to less than perfection? I can't say enough good about the Blomiden Inn grounds (which are gorgeous, especially the serpentine trail and the fountains and gardens), the staff, the Inn itself, the food and the ambiance. What a lucky find!

Positives: The setting is lovely and Wolfville is so quaint.

Negatives: The value was not there at all and the Management has yet to respond to a request.

Comments: I have written to the Inn with regards to my experience a few weeks ago and have yet to hear back. I went so far as to re-send it in order to give them the opportunity to explain some of the shortcomings. The cleanliness was by far my biggest issue. The layers of dust in the dining room, atrocious, and the table linens unchanged from each seating and day to night. There was no ambient music at all and that made it hard to dine romantically with other tables nearby. We stayed in the Perth Cottage which while it was lovely inside in terms of decor, had a broken shower door and faucet as well as an unclean large Jacuzzi tub. The cottage was not nestled into the property as we had thought but adjacent to the residential side street. Very disappointed overall, especially with the lack of communication on their part at this time.
