Stayed at the motel last night with my daughter. After a week long build in PEI for Habitat for Humanity we're doing a bit of a road trip through the Maritimes. I chose the Willow Bend based on other traveller reviews. Great motel! We arrived to a friendly welcome and the smell of just baked muffins, and recommendation to Fletcher's... More

We have just spent 2 nights here. The weather was not good but the accommodation was. I must say the bed was fantastic and large. The room very clean with a small kitchenette. The bathroom was clean and the shower was good. Breakfast was continental but there was plenty of it.

This was our first time at Willow Bend, so I only booked for one night, so we could check it out. We ended up staying a 2nd night, and have booked another night on our return through the area. We have 2 double sized beds in our room, and far more extra space than at any other hotel. The bathroom... More

To be fair this place is clean and quite modern for a motel, the dining room looks like a Boutique hotel, having clean lines and crisp finishes. The breakfast is very simple continental, but great it's inc in the price.The owner is friendly, helpful and professional. . The rooms were clean and fresh - the bathroom didn't have any hooks...

Really enjoyed the room.....everything was immaculate and comfortable. Easy access in and out to the highway. I would definitely tag along again when my husband has to go down for business. Two thumbs up!

We checked out this motel solely on tripadvisor reviews and were pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely renovated 'family suite', which consisted of two queen beds and an open and adjoining livingroom area with a pull out couch. There were 2 tvs - one in the bedroom area and one in the livingroom, but because it's all open having 2... More

Both management and room staff are great and can’t do enough for their guests. I would recommend this location for both business and personal travellers You will find excellent value and a... More

We stayed at the Willow Bend Motel while doing an East coast tour in early November. We have done the same tour for many years and have never found a place in Truro where we were really comfortable. That all changed this year. The Willow Bend is clean, very comfortable and affordable and the owner was very helpful. Not only... More
