The Hillcrest Inn is a little close to a main road in Pugwash, but there is a lot of lovely countryside nearby and easy walking (and 4-wheeler) trails right beside the inn. The room was very standard, but it is the restaurant that makes you want to stay longer. My husband swears their seafood chowder was the best of our... More

We ate there this afternoon - very clean, friendly and the most amazing food!! I had the pan seared haddock which was cooked perfectly and the garlic smashed potatoes were to die for. Others had deep fried haddock and fries as well as the smoked pork chops. We will definitely be back very soon!!!

We were daytripping along the north shore, between Pictou and the bridge back over to PEI, and wanted a good spot to stop for dinner. I found Hillcrest View Inn and Restaurant on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. Very pleasantly surprised! The restaurant was fresh, clean and the staff were friendly. Amongst our group we... More

I stayed at the Hillcrest View Inn last night while visiting my granddaughter, who is working in the area. The girl who took my reservation (and also works the front desk and waits tables in the restaurant) was very friendly, pleasant and helpful. The room was spotless and the bed nice and firm, just the way I like it. Great... More

Stayed here during a guys golf trip. The staff stayed late to check us in and was there early to check us out. The staff was exceptionally friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower had great pressure. It was in a great location 10 minutes from the Northumberland Links golf course.

Newly renovated clean rooms. Friendly staff. Overall very good. Would definitely stay here again. Our room had two queen beds with new mattresses - a bit firm for our liking but we are used to a memory foam mattress. All linens clean and new. Room was spotless. Small window in the back that you can open for fresh air. Large... More

Just had dinner last night at the Hillcrest View Restaurant. Modern dining room that is tastefully decorated, with warm friendly staff. Great choices of food and wine from the area makes it especially appealing. Thank goodness for the prompt service because I kept changing my mind on what to order! Settled on the lobster-haddock bake which was "lick your plate... More

Wonderfully fresh fish and other locally-sourced foods prepared with a light, creative touch. Great homemade desserts, like the brownie with local raspberries and whipped cream--yum!! The freshest haddock we've eaten in Nova Scotia, and the most generous servings of local wines. The A fantastic place to stop for lunch or dinner. Its beige-siding exterior and the fact that there aren't... More

Most enthusiastic landlord we have encountered so far and very solicitous and helpful. We stayed in the cottage. Spotlessly clean room. Modern decor. Good beds. Well equipped kitchen. At the restaurant, the food was good, especially the caesar salad and seafood chowder. This establishment is really a motel and therefore located on the highway. As a place to stay, I... More
