My friend and I were travelling to PEI and decided to spend a few days in Pictou to meet up with family. So we booked a few nights in Dolan's and we're not disappointed. When we arrived we were upgraded to a fantastic apartment by the water with every convenience we could wish. Two bathrooms, big living space, massive tv...

Stay here often while in Pictou County on business, usually just one and two night stays. Nearly every time I'm upgraded to a suite, and if the higher end one's are free they will often move me there. Service is always impeccable from the housekeeping staff, to the manager to the owner himself. Better than all the road warrior motels...

we stayed at one of Tony Dolans Platinum properties,it was spacious, clean with exceptional quality from the fixtures to the furniture. Better than many executive suites i have stayed at. Tony came down as we arrived and showed us how to work the tv and offered any help we needed. The following day , Pictou was slammed with a terrible...

Our previous night was spent on the ferry and we were exhausted. We Googled hotels about 1/2 hour before driving into Pictou and the lady who answered was so helpful. The room at the inn was great. Immaculate, spacious, comfortable and affordable. Thanks for the Nova Scotia hospitality! :)

We stopped at one of the Dolan properties and called the number on the door. We were told to go on in and have a look at the suite. It was lovely but a bit more than we needed. She then told us to go to one of the other properties and have a look and if we liked it...

This review is for the Dolan's Gold self catering suites,144 Water Street, there are four other Dolan's properties dotted around Pictou. You have to register at another Dolan's building about a mile away - the lady there was very friendly and we found our way to our accommodation easily.

We need a place to sleep close to the PEI ferry. We found this very affordable option in Pictou and came in with low expectations. The owner even warned us that we had chosen to stay in the "old motel". Well, this motor inn was just fine for us. The lodging was very clean and spacious, it had a small...

I was blown away with the clean and high end accommodation of the 144 Water Street location. The manager was so great to us ! We forgot a blanket we brought in, and she found it for us, and had it folded up and ready for us to pick up. Close to everything that Pictou has to offer. The room...
