Tulips and Thistle Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 6 Truro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 September 2011

After touring Nova Scotia with a number of family members, my wife and I had one extra day to do some sight seeing on our own. For our accomodations that night we chose Tulips and Thistle B&B based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we were happy we did. Ann and Larry are the warmest and most engaging of any inn keepers that we have encountered during past stay at B&Bs around the world. The room was great and the breakfast was excellent. The location, outside of Truro, is very convenient for exploring the many different areas of Nova Scotia. We highly recommend this B&B.

So glad we chose Tulips and Thistle B&B. Convenient location, lovely home, great breakfast and Larry and Ann are wonderful folks. We would recommend a stay at their place to anyone visiting Nova Scotia.

We had the opportunity of staying with Ann and Larry during our time in Nova Scotia. It was a wonderful experience, which was enhanced by the friendliness and warmth of the proprietors, Ann and Larry. Room was lovely, beds comfortable - I could go on and on. Wish we had stayed for longer. Ann and Larry's attention to detail is perfect and for sure the best breakfasts anyone could wish for with a breakfast menu which covers all tastes. The house is situated in a lovely quiet area of Truro, and we had the option of using the private balcony from our room. If we are in the area again, we would stay here, no question. Thank you Ann and Larry for making our stay with you so very enjoyable.

This was our first trip to Canada (Aug 2011) and we spent most of it in Quebec. On our return to the airport we spent a night at Tulip and Thistle in Nova Scotia and I wish we could have stayed longer! Here we had the best breakfast of our entire trip, we were recommended a great place for dinner too thanks to Larry and Ann who made reservations for us upon our arrival. The room was very comfortable, clean and cozy. To top it all off, we had great conversations with our hosts, like I said earlier time spent here was too short. Don't miss this place!!

Thank you Ann & Larry for an enjoyable overnight stay. The bed was very comfortable in the Mississauga room. We enjoyed the conversation in the evening, and its continuation at breakfast, which was excellent. The patio was a peaceful refuge with book and wine glass in hand. Highly recommended.

Larry & Ann met us at the door and made us feel right at home. Their house is lovely and super clean with comfortable rooms plus all the amenities. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast and the company of the other guest. If you are traveling in Nova Scotia don't miss this B & B.
