“Great place to stay, warm welcome and comfortable”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Hostess Andrea made me most welcome. The place has nice warm ambience. Room was well equipped and the bed the most comfortable I have slept in for a while.
More than adequate breakfast with gluten free waffles on request! Well done.
I will happily stay here again anytime.

At the Turret is a beautiful house across the street from Fort Anne historical site, where the lantern-lit graveyard tour leaves from, and just a five minute walk from the beautiful Historical Gardens. The room (King George suite) was big and the bed very comfortable. There were lots of pillows and towels. The host, Andrea Boulding, is a wonderful cook and has lots of information on things to do. Annapolis Royal is a lovely town and there is lots to see in the area. The Saturday Farmer's Market is great. We stayed five days and could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: The King George had a very comfortable king bed and is a good size room. The room on the first floo...

This is a very nice B&B, within easy walking distance to everything in Annapolis Royal.
The rooms are beautifully decorated with antique furniture. The beds are very good with very attractive bedding. There is a lovely sitting room with a fireplace and comfortable couches and a nice front verandah to sit on and just watch the world go by.
Breakfast was wonderful and included a fruit salad and the coffee is very good.
The hostess has a lovely manner and is very helpful with directions and suggestions about what to do in the area. I would definitely stay here again.

I am a frequent traveler and have traveled all over the United States and to Europe. I have stayed at many different kind of facilities. Of the many choices in the area to pick from, I decided based on the reviews, location and price. The fresh fruit salad for breakfast was some of best I've ever experienced. The location is very convenient for walking distance to all of the town's historical sites with several really nice restaurants nearby. Parking was ample and convenient. No air conditioning in the bedroom so had to keep the window open and ceiling fan on. Fortunately the breeze during the night was cooler. It was slightly stuffy during the day on the 2nd floor. Although the bedroom was of adequate size, there was not a desk in it. I inquired in advance of booking about confirming broad high-speed internet in the room since it was critical to my business travel. Upon arrival I quickly realized the wireless did not reach the room I was in on the 2nd floor. That in addition to no desk in the room, I had to spend time in the common area on the first floor when I needed to work online. It was not that much of an issue because most of the time I was the only one there. The biggest issue for me is almost insulting depending on your point of view. As a frequent traveler and company owner, I pride myself in deciding how much I'm going to tip which is directly related to my satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the service, food and/or facilities. I am not accustom to being dictated upon presentation of my bill how much I "must" tip. There was nothing on the web site indicating there would be an additional 15% fee added to the bill automatically. I've been to places where i gladly paid as much as 20% for the rare occasion when the service is above and beyond. Its not that I'm not willing to pay a premium for quality. Its just that in all the places I've stayed as a world traveler, this place is simply average in all most accounts and below average in some.

I am sorry that your stay was less than expectation. You are mistaken about a service charge -there was no service charge added to your bill - the 15% added to the invoice is the Harmonized Sales Tax in Nova Scotia, which was clearly shown on the invoice and is collected on every good and service. When your room was booked, you specifically requested the room you were assigned. No mention was made of the need for a desk. If it had, I would have suggested a larger room that might have better met your specific needs. Many guests have successfully used the High Speed wireless connection from the room you occupied - I am not sure why it didn't work for you, but you were able to access it readily from other parts of the house.

You visited during quite a hot spell and I did offer to install the air conditioner for you, when you arrived, pointing out that it does reduce the fresh air flow through the window, when in place. You did not indicate that it was necessary so I did not put it in.

Again, my apologies that your stay At the Turret was not up to you expectations.

This is a great place to stay in Annapolis Royal. It's right opposite the original, but still working Court House and Fort Anne and an easy walk into town or the Historic Gardens.

The rooms are very attractively furnished with pretty quilts on the very comfy beds and nice decorative touches. Andrea your hostess can provide you with all the information you need on the local area. Breakfasts are really good and you share a huge table with fellow guests which means great conversations but often means a late start to the day if you find yourself in conversation with other travellers all telling their stories!

We went to Annapolis Royal to stage ourselves for a morning ferry ride to New Brunswick, and wished we had come earlier and stayed longer. At the Turret is a great place to stay, and within walking distance of almost everything in this charming historic town. The Historic Gardens are among the best in North America and the Old Fort is very interesting.

This B&B is in a beautifully kept house with gorgeous woodwork. Our room on the first floor was large, with a private entrance and side porch. The B&B offers other public spaces to its guests in the living room and on the front porch. Although the bathroom was narrow, there was space for our things. The bedroom was large and exquisitely decorated with antiques and fine linens. The innkeeper, Andrea, is very knowledgeable not only about Annapolis Royal, but the entire area. She steered us to interesting drives along the coast and places of interest that we hadn't gleaned from guide books. Breakfasts were ham and cheese quiche one day, and bacon and eggs the next along with fresh fruit. Her dogs were delightful.
