Nova Scotia Hotels
for your BEST vacation ever!

Nova Scotia hotels cater to everyone's needs and desires when they are on vacation.  

You can spend the night in a cozy bed and breakfast with full breakfast the next morning, relax in a 5-star hotel overlooking Halifax Harbour or stay in a tourist home that dates to 1886.

The options are endless! My recommendation would be to look at what is available, decide what you want and compare prices.

I have partnered with Trip Advisor to help you out with finding your perfect Nova Scotia hotel for your vacation. They do a very good job of sorting the different types of places to stay and the criteria that we should look at when booking a place to stay. 

The best part of Trip Advisor is that the ratings are done by you!  The visitor and the customer.  The ratings range from:

  • 5 - excellent
  • 4 - very good
  • 3 - average
  • 2 - poor
  • 1 - terrible

I have gone on their site several times and rated the places that I have stayed.  I encourage you to do the same.

They also put accommodations in different categories:

  • hotels
  • B&B/Inns
  • Specialty Lodging
  • Vacation Rentals

And they allow you to search according to hotel style such as:

  • best value
  • budget
  • business
  • family-friendly
  • luxury
  • romantic
  • and several more.

Best Overall B&Bs/Inns

I don't know of anyone who doesn't like to stay in an unique place with unique surroundings and, of course, great food!

Sometimes, this is all we want from vacation.

Nova Scotia has it's fair share of great B&Bs and Inns.  They will be in small towns, overlooking the ocean or in downtown Halifax.
