“A lovely inn for those who love food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

We stayed here for a few glorious warm days at the beginning of September and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The Inn is in a central location opposite the grounds of the fort, with everything in town a short walk away. That allowed us to soak up some local colour at a pub before returning to the Inn's restaurant for a fantastic meal featuring Digby scallops and lots of local produce. Innkeeper Pat Redgrave told us he's been featuring the 100-mile diet for 25 years but it's only become fashionable lately. Our plates were filled with a colourful medley of local vegetables, something you don't often get in Nova Scotian restaurants. We had a surprisingly good pinot grigio from Annapolis Highland vineyard, which is close by and worth a visit. The Inn itself is a lovely old building with a screened dining room addition. The rooms were quiet and comfortable but not frilly. All in all, highly recommended.

This restaurant was recommended by the owners of theTulip Tree. It was a short walk from the b&b, so we ventured out for dinner during our stay in Annapolis Royal. I am so lad that we did! The food was amazing! The lobster salad was the absolute best loser I have ever had. All of our food was well-presented, graciously served, and a measure to eat! Loved the local beers and wines, and homemade blueberry pie!!!

We stayed here with 5 adults and 4 children, and the staff were wonderful in addressing our needs. They had the rooms all prepared for us and since two of the kids were young this was great. Rooms were very clean, and the breakfast included the next morning was a choice of a hot or cold served breakfast and not a run of the mill continental breakfast. Amazing value for our money, unfortunately we were not able to try the evening dining room although we have heard it is amazing! We will definitely stay there again .

We arrived in Annapolis with no planed reservations. Though most B&Bs had availability we decided to stay at Garrison based on it's location on George Street and the recommendation of some locals that we met. The place was perfect for the money!! The owner, Patrick, was very friendly and accommodating. After previewing two rooms, we decided on the top floor in a room that reminded us of our bedroom back home. We couldn't believe how quiet it was, even for a room facing the street. We would have absolutely no reservations in staying there again!! The breakfast was delicious too!!

We have stayed at the Garrison House three times in four years, and it remains our first choice. Our return this year even saw some lovely improvements, and the staff, food and atmosphere were as perfect as ever. My husband was thrilled to see the new big flatscreen TV in our room! I was just happy to be back in a place as simple and elegant as I have come to know and appreciate. Thanks again! See you next year, we hope....

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2009

The property was neglected. When we arrived at 2:30 there was a note on the door telling us owner would be back at 3:30. This did not happen at any other B & B we stayed at. Our room was large and reallly nice, but the furniture was threadbare and it was not so clean. The next day housekeeping had just made the bed and the bathroom was exactly as we left it after breakfast, bathmat on the floor, dirty glasses,..It was really a shame and affected the way we felt about the town. food was average.
