We had a very nice visit to the Ocean Hillside B&B. We booked primarily out of convenience due to the close proximity to the ferry, but were pleasantly surprised at the hospitality. Bob made an excellent breakfast and we were incredibly impressed with the stories he shared with us. One of the best parts of staying at a B&B is... More

We were delighted to find this gem during a recent visit to Digby. We were greeted by the charming host and shown to a spacious, comfortable suite, warmly decorated with a million dollar view of the water. The bathroom was also large and well equipped. Breakfast was served by our host, who is a retired chef of distinguished standing. Needless... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The Hosts are such great people. We had a wonderful room and the Breakfasts were top notch. Not realizing until the second morning that Bob was a gourmet chef. My husband and I said "no wonder, the food was so good!". I would highly recommend this B & B for anyone. It was... More

This is an awesome b&b. Beautiful setting and wonderful hosts. Breakfast is gourmet as Bob is a noted chef who has worked around the world. Can't say enough about this place. It is on the right shortly after you get off the ferry in Digby from St John's nb. Up the road and right behind the white house on the... More

Stayed two nights. Breakfast both mornings was outstanding. Rooms were very nice and well done. Probably one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed, and fresh looking. Beautiful quilts throughout. Bob had wonderful stories to add to his fabulous breakfasts. Would stay there again if we go to Digby. Might make a trip just to stay there!

Ocean Hillside has charming rooms and Bob, the owner/manager, provides a wonderful breakfast. If you're leaving on the early-morning ferry, he'll make up a picnic breakfast you can take with you -- much better, I think, than what the ferry offers. It's located less than 1km from the ferry, making it too far from the downtown area to walk to... More

We stayed at Ocean Hillside and loved every minute of our stay. The hosts Maria and Bob were very gracious, they took us in when there was no hydro for two days, they not only gave us breakfasts but also made us dinner as the whole town was closed because of the hurricane. Their place was spotless and the meals... More

I had wanted to review this place a couple years ago but couldn't seem to find it on Trip Advisor at that time. (It came across my radar recently, so was glad to find that there actually was a listing for it here.) From what I can remember, the property and housee were well taken care of, and because of...
