The Pictou Lodge Resort is a bad example of maritime hotels. This place is run down and old. Everything has a musty smell to it. The grounds are hardly kept up, the only thing going for it is that is located right on the Northumberland Straight. I spent nearly a week there this summer and did not enjoy it.
The rooms are hardly up to standards. The amenities are terrible. They have these little individually wrapped soaps and huge bottle of shampoo hanging in the bathroom. Didnt anyone get the memo about community amenties? I could put anything I wanted in those bottles, ie bleach, hair dye. I wasnt 100% sold on the idea of using products others have used. I had a kitchette and didnt use it one bit. The items looked and felt like they were from the Dollarama. Cheap cheap cheap!!!
The reception area is too cluttered. I went to ask the agents a few questions and it was as if i was bothering their hen party they had going on. I know its a rustic place but it doesnt mean lowering of standards. The Keltic, Liscombe, and the Pines are also rustic but no where near as cheap and flimsy as this place!
I will say the restaurant is good. The food was good-just dont order the green curry dinner. Desserts were excellent. Also do not do the brunch they have, it is a waste of money.
I agree, stay at the Customs House but dine at the Pictou Lodge Resort.
