This property has both cottages and motel accommodations. We had a motel room that was ok but nothing more. The bed was a bit worn and the room needed some paint/TLC but it was ok for our needs. The only thing really going for this motel is its location to the ferry to PEI. It was pretty easy to get to the ferry and a Tim Horton is close by so you can get some donuts and coffee to get going. Truth is, there is not much to choose from in Pictou so it is what it is; it clearly beats camping but not by much.

Thanks for taking the time to review our motel.

Truth be known, we love our little motel and so do most people who stay here for the good value, comfy beds and exceptionally clean rooms.

Sorry you didn’t appreciate what we offer but then again, roadside motels are not everyone’s cup of tea.

Safe travels.

Not much still open at this time of year and this place was pretty vacant but nice - we were in #1 with a king size bed- good bed and on the corner so lots of light. Slept fine - no breakfast but a Tim Horton’s is nearby.

Good location when getting off the ferry, right next to a Sobey's for breakfast supplies. Clean with a tiny kitchenette, adequately equipped. The mattresses could be replaced and the place has an overall dated feel but given prices we paid elsewhere in Nova Scotia, it provided good value.

Thanks for taking the time to review our little motel. You will be pleased to know that every year our budget allows for us to replace 4 mattresses in the place. And the room you stayed in is now at the top of the list due to your feedback.

Cheers and Safe travels

A repeat stay for me. I travel for work and often combine it with pleasure travel. The Lionstone is a great stop due to its great prime location in the county and proximity to the ferry for PEI. I like the very economical pricing, comfortable bed and very clean units. If you're looking for high end pampering and are particular about additional amenities, are a tad finicky or fussy and "particular" then maybe this isn't the place for you. If you like a simplistic, small town feel, low maintenance casual environment, friendly service, you have reasonable expectations and want to save your dollars for souvenirs, excursions and experiences, then you absolutely won't be disappointed.
