“Our favorite place to stay on our Nova Scotia trip”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We loved this inn. Found it by accident on a side street as we were circling back around to the inns on the main street. Very quiet, cute town with several historic places to see. We just needed a place to stay on the way to whale watching. So glad we didn't keep driving to Digby, as I was disappointed when I saw it the next day. This town (Annapolis Royal) and Inn had all the atmosphere and all of the modern conveniences that we had hoped for. Hosts Jim and Gaya were very friendly and informative. Loved the gardens on the grounds too. We had the room on the bottom floor just to the right of the foyer. It had a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Got a great night's sleep, other than the sun rises earlier in Nova Scotia.

Room Tip: Suite on bottom floor is away from everyone else

We stayed here for the last four nights of our holiday touring Nova Scotia and we had stayed at some very good B&B but this one was so peaceful & relaxing. The hosts Jim & Gaya were very welcoming from the moment we arrived.Our room which was on the side of the house had a large bay window from which you could see both the front and back garden and was very quiet. The bed was great with lovely white cotton bed linen, and fluffy white towels in the bathroom. The house was beautiful and you could tell it was a home that they shared with their guests. Jim & Gaya were also very helpful when asked for places of interest to visit. there was as lot of places to see within walking distance but also just over the bridge in Port Royal there is a replica of the stonghold that stood there in the 17th century that is well worth a visit. The Tidal Power Building on the bridge is also worth a visit. I found the restaurants very helpful as well, it is very much a seafood area but they were all willing to feed a veggie. If we traveled to Nova Scotia again we would certainly want to stay here again.

The Bread and Roses Inn is a beautiful building with wonderful hosts and very comfortable rooms and beds. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights in July at the Inn and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in exploring the picturesque town of Annapolis Royal.
The bed was a little bit too firm, but other than that I cannot think of anything that was not well done at this Inn.
Gaya and Jim work hard to serve a very tasty breakfast each morning and its always served in great style.
The Inn is walking distance to many interesting sights including: Fort Anne Historic Site, the Annapolis Royal Historical Walking tours that start from the small lighthouse on George St., the interesting restaurants and the boardwalk along the waterway.
Port Royal Historical Site is a scenic, short drive (12 kilometres) and a very interesting site to explore.
We stayed in the Room #5 with a King Bed (on the 2nd floor) and were very comfortable and I am very picky where I stay.
We drove from Truro, stopped in Peggy's Cove(1.5 hour drive) for a thorough look around with some shopping, then drove to Lunenburg for a very brief look around (because it was raining), and then drove the 2 hours from Lunenburg to Annapolis Royal across N.S on a winding road. A full day, but still very enjoyable and doable.
Definitely would recommend the Bread and Roses Inn.

Room Tip: Room #5 was quiet and faced to the side of the building, so no road noise AND very lovely with a Kin...

We stayed here two nights on our visit to Digby area. Annapolis Royal was a great choice. Small artsy community with great restaurants and things to see and do all within walking distance of Bread and Roses.
Of the B&B, we had a superlative room, the three of us staying in the newly converted suite on the main floor. Had a sitting room with a wall bed and bedroom with a queen bed as well as a newly revamped bathroom. For the men, it even featured full service televisions...one in the living room and one in the bedroom.
The garden is lovely breakfast was excellent featuring homemade breads and jam as well as many other choices. Would definitely come again. We were so happy that we chose to stay in Annapolis Royal over other possible towns in the area and also that we chose Bread and Roses. If you make the same choice, you will also.

We had a beautiful room with a 4 piece bathroom. The bed was four-poster with 2 stairs to climb into bed. It was extremely comfortable. The furnishings in the room were very elegant. You felt like you stepped back in time (except for the flat screen TV). We could walk to the village which hosted a number of restaurants. We also on Saturday morning visited the local market that consisted of homemade breads etc. and crafts. It was terrific. The owners were wonderful people and they certainly aimed to please. We had a delicious breakfast. I left a jacket in a closet and they mailed it off to me and I had it within the week of leaving there. I would certainly recommend this accomadation to anyone travelling to this area.

Room Tip: Two of the rooms available have four-poster beds, you have to try it.

This is an elegant Victorian B&B on a quiet street in Annapolis Royal. Our room was spacious with a comfortable feather bed, easy chairs, writing desk, plenty of light to read by, and a large en suite bathroom. It was the perfect base for our exploration of this interesting town. We could easily walk to the Historic Gardens, wonderful restaurants, the excellent German Bakery, library, Fort Anne, and a nice walk along the river. Our hosts, Jim and Gaya, helped us feel right at home and provided delicious breakfasts including bowls of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, juice and a hot breakfast as well each morning. We stayed two nights, and are already planning to return. We certainly recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet, well furnished, architecturally interesting B&B with friendly hosts. Eleanor and Clint, Downeast Maine

Room Tip: Our room (Room 4) was excellent in every way

In the past some Bed and breakfasts were quaint but not fully modernized. Bread and Roses is a Victorian beauty with all the expected charm and decor, but the rooms are fully modern. We had a two room suite with a queen size bed, which was new and comfortable. Each room had a flat screen TV with a full offering of channels. The connecting door enabled me to read at night without disturbing my partner. Breakfast was excellent, and I was served coffee and a scone before breakfast. The hosts were pleasant to talk with and well informed. Annapolis Royal in the spring is relatively warm for Nova Scotia, and the magnolias in the gardens bloom early. There are several restaurants and pubs in the town, also.
