“Great Location and Stay”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had a great apartment for 2 nights. Lots of extras, clean and inviting. Full kitchen, BBQ, and a washer and dryer. After traveling for two weeks we need them. We had the 2nd floor apt, with a wonderful view of the water. The owner Tony could not have been nicer. He came in to adjust the temp., and to let us know about his dogs being around. One was taken into their apt only because he is too friendly. I am not a dog person, but the Shepard was a sweet heart. He just looked in at us and when on his way. I did not feel afraid being around either of the dogs. And that is saying a lot! Lots to do in the area, we are sorry that we only stayed two nights, next time will be longer. Tony made recommendations for meals and sites, all were great!

Room Tip: Dolan's has several types of accommodations, I suggest that you call them and let them know what...

We traveled from Boston to Calais, Maine and then on to Nova Scotia the next day. The Visitor Center at Amherst, Nova Scotia called and reserved Dolan's for us. It has to be one of the best places to stay! We had a studio apartment with our own front porch looking out onto Pictou Bay. There was a full kitchen, queen bed, living room area & a back yard. Accommodations were cozy and comfortable, as well as a great value. We could walk to the center with some excellent restaurants and shops. On the weekend, there was a market with local vendors. We also attended a ceilidh at the deCoste Center which was only a short walk from Dolan's. The owner and staff were friendly, warm & made you feel so welcome. The hospitality of this area is just wonderful. The ferry to PEI is also nearby. Beautiful, amazing scenery everywhere! Can't wait to go back.

After touring PEI, headed to Nova Scotia on the ferry. Very lovely spot in downtown Pictou. Place was very accomadating for ourselves and friends. Can not beat the price! 3 bedrooms complete with pullout couch. Plus was not charged for additional guests. Owner went above and beyond recommending dinner options and ensuring we had everything for our stay. Two thumbs way up!

Lovely bachelor apartment for 2 nights. Not great for sleeping. No curtains/blinds on upper windows so street lights and bank sign shining in all night and through window in door as well. Love getting up early but not when we don't have to, lots of morning light at 0515!
Great bed though! Location is nice- close to water.

We checked in to Dolan's today and because of construction, we were upgraded from a simple room in the main house to a Gold house apartment. Talk about customer service! The staff was friendly and even drove us over to the new accommodations to show us how to get there. The room was bright, airy and clean. Love it!

We rolled up to Dolan's, Pictou on our motorcycle (at the location shown in photo above) in September, having made loose arrangements with the innkeeper (didn't need a firm booking due to time of year) only to find a an empty inn BUT friendly instructions on the door as to how to proceed. We entered, phoned the # given and were told on the phone by the innkeeper to take our pick of the available rooms (keys were in the room latches!). .We felt right at home, checked all the rooms and picked not our favourite (which was the loft room) but the next best which was right in our price range for this particular trip. We'll take the loft another time as it is actually a small apartment.
The room was spacious and cozy with nice furnishings and window treatments, an air tub in the private bathroom, shared balcony looking out to the street and harbour, enough of a kitchenette for two, very comfy bed, and just enough old fashioned touches left in place - note the old doors and knobs which do work like they are antique (not a problem, but cute).
We did not need to use the a/c unit in the window but the radiator heat worked VERY well and was perfectly silent. Ahhhhh.
On this trip we didn't utilize the common rooms with comfy leather furnishings and pool table, preferring to just enjoy the local dining (which is really within walking distance) and kick back in front of our own tv with the local newspapers - purchased at the excellent convenience store across the street. We also enjoyed an evening stroll to Tim's.
I would definitely return to Dolan's. We thought we would be alone in the inn but it filled up each of the 3 nights we stayed.
We consider ourselves part-time Pictonians and, as such, felt right at home at this inn. Dolan owns several and varied properties in Pictou and we cannot comment on any of the other buildings except the one shown in the photo but I strongly suspect they are all of equal quality. We felt we received truly excellent value at this property.

Our family stayed in a Dolan's Inn and Suites in downtown Pictou prior to catching the ferry. The lady from Dolan's had us set up on the third floor of a building but upon seeing our luggage, and my bad knee, she took us to another one of their suites closer to the center of Pictou. The accommodations were great and slept five of us comfortably. It had had full kitchen, two twin beds, a pull out couch and ajacent parking.

Room Tip: Ask for the place on Coleraine St.
