More about Queen Anne Inn
Warm & Welcoming
My husband and I spent one evening last week at the Queen Anne Inn. We chose this particular property based on its very positive ratings. And it surpassed our expectations! The accomodations were exceptional, especially if you like antique decor and comfortable bedding...Greg, the innkeeper,went above and beyond to see that we enjoyed our time there. And the finale was a four course gourmet breakfast that truly could have appeared on the cover of Food & Wine. So yummy! We left Annapolis Royal wishing we had booked for another night or so.
Oh well, next time!
Fantastic in every way !
Our stay at the Queen Anne Inn was the highlite of our week trip to Nova Scotia. The inn itself is amazing, from the moment we entered the door we were in awe of the architecture, furnishings and welcoming feel it all eminated. Greg, the host was the topping on the cake, his sense of humour and warm personality really topped it all off as a 10 out of 10 exerience.
I would recommend a stay here without heisitation.
Idyllic visit at Queen Anne Inn
My daughter and I selected Queen Anne Inn mostly from the reviews on Trip Advisor. We had already decided to visit Nova Scotia and wanted a B&B but were not picky about where, just wanted a nice place to stay. The Queen Anne Inn is a jewel and definitely worth the 4 + stars!!
The decor is beautiful, lovely antiques in all rooms. Every room is different. The beds are very comfortable, firm but with a soft feather bed top. One of the former guests wrote in the guest book about the "comfy, squidgey beds"...you get the picture.
The food was also wonderful and very reasonable. Greg and Julie are the innkeepers, warm, personable, great sense of humor. They made us feel like we were in their home, yet at the same time we felt we were in a very fancy, early 1900's hotel. They interact with the guests as much or as little as you want. The entire staff is welcoming and gave great service.
Everything at the Queen Anne Inn has been done with thought and taste. All the little details right down to the unique "do not disturb" signs, are well thought out and beautifully placed to create an idyllic atmosphere.
We stayed 4 nights and it was not too long. We noted that many guests were on their way elsewhere and just stayed 1-2 nights. We were sorry to leave.
Annapolis Royal is full of historical buildings, and sites, including the Queen Anne Inn. Keji national park is about 30 minutes away. Behind the Inn is a garden, deck, and huge lawn. And behind that is a wonderful wildlife marsh/refuge.
And YES we plan to return.
A fantastic place to stay. Everyhing about the inn was wonderful from the lovely grounds, amazing food, most comfortable bedrooms, jacuzzi tubs and the fabulous decor.
The fresh flowers, fine linens and china and excellent staff made our stay there a memorable one.
One of the Best!
The view of the Queen Anne from the main street of Annapolis Royal presaged our stay: a breathtaking Victorian, in perfect condition, with a manicured lawn and plantings. The inside was just as perfect; we've been to many B&B's of similar ages to find a mish-mash of furnishings, but the Queen Anne was put together with both care and taste!
Our room (#5) was spotless, the furnishings immaculate, comfortable, and the room spacious. As an aside, we've been presented with hundreds of soaps (I spent over 90 nights in hotels in the past year), and both my wife & I think this was possibly the best. Another rare item: not only did the Queen Anne have wireless internet, but there was satellite tv in each room (limited options, but still available!).
In the downstairs (including available ice maker and glasses - a rarity), the fresh flowers would stop most in their tracks. Beautiful, and again done with taste, not just for show.
Everything in Annapolis Royal is in walking distance of the hotel. While it's true that other properties may be closer to one venue or another, we're talking about feet rather than blocks, and I can't imagine any other property there rivaling this one.
Food was good - especially the banana chocolate chip muffins (they managed to find seconds for us).
The hosts were also knowledgeable about the area. On their recommendation we ate at a new Croatian restaurant, and went on the night-time graveyard tour (good introduction to the area).
A Jewel in the Crown
My husband and I stayed at the Queen Anne Inn for two nights in July 2007. We found it to be a delightful place to stay: it is a few minutes walk into the little town of Annapolis Royal. Our room was extremely comfortable,the service most friendly and the breakfasts truly enjoyable. We dined one evening at the Inn and the food was most delicious and innovative.
We would certainly love to return to stay "At this charming Inn with cuisine and service fit for a Queen".

a grand mansion with some sadness
A mansion with heavy wooden stair case and grand pocket doors. Breathtaking!
The staff was extremely helpful and a pleasure. Breakfast choices were caloric and delicious. table settings and presentation was lovely.
The bed mattress had a feather bed topping and was very cozy. There was an airconditioner in the room that worked extremely well!!
The room was large but, depressing. There was very little light in the room. And most disappointing was the feeling that there was no care in the details of a building with such great presence. Any modernizing that was done gave the impression that the owner highered a plumber to just get the job done. Actually, it is possible that they are the renovations from when the building was used as a boys school boarding house. For example: The hooks and rods were the $1 hardware variety. The hanging standard sink belongs in an airport bathroom....
we really could only get news channels on the TV (that was fine for us as we didn't really need or want more).
A light walk to and through town. which we enjoyed.
Overall, I enjoyed staying here right up until I would enter our room although grateful for the up-to-date a/c.
Queen Anne Inn - Exceeds All Expectations
When we drove into Annapolis Royal and saw the Queen Anne Inn for the first time we knew there was no better place to stay in this lovely community. Our room was gorgeous as was the entire Inn. Greg, the innkeeper is a "hoot" and we really enjoyed his hospitality and friendliness. Julie also makes the most awesome muffins for breakfast (request her pineapple/coconut!). Every breakfast was delicious as well as their dinners. We had their lobster and it was out of this world. They have upgraded their backyard which now includes an outdoor kitchen, decks and beautiful grounds. A great place to sit and have a glass of wine. There is now way you could be disappointed with your stay at the Queen Anne Inn.
Gorgeous inn, fabulous food, wonderful host
A beautiful inn, beautifully furnished. Inn-keeper Greg is welcoming and warm (and I want some of whatever its he is "on"). Staff is helpful and funny. Breakfast was scrumtious. i would definitley return here and recommend it to all.
Ross and Santry Clans Visit The "Grand" Queen Anne Inn
What a beautiful way to end our week long trip in Nova Scotia. Annapolis Royal is absolutely a wonderful place to visit and the Queen Anne Inn was a "Truly Magnificent Place" to stay.
Our host and hostess, Greg and Julie, and all the rest of the staff made us feel "at home" from the minute we walked in. We had a fabulous time from that moment on and were quite sorry to return to reality after our 3 luxurious nights. The gourmet breakfasts were scrumptous, the last one was even served by Greg himself in authentic period costume.
We highly recommend the Graveyard Tour and if you have a chance to sample the lobster dinner at the Inn, please do so.
We could go on and on about the wonderful time we had and the "Greg Encounters" we experienced, but everyone should visit themselves and enjoy the "fantasy" of the Inn and history of the town. It was our most enjoyable place to stay in Nova Scotia!
