This is a nice water side inn, like a road side motel in the states. However, you get much more. The rooms are comfortable and the staff wonderful. Our first time in the area. Gordon gave us great suggestions for our Cabot trail visit, while they have a restaurant, he suggested a nearby resort restaurant for our desire to have... More

We came in late and were greeted with welcome arms. Check in was seamless and hassle free. Free wifi and great service! The room was very clean and well furnished (if a bit dated both in furniture and walls). Was very impressed! Plugs in the room were limited though and there was no phone to reach the front desk if...

We had a lovely big room with a large balcony looking out over the water. Although it's all a bit dated everything is very clean and our room was properly maintained each day. The dinner menu was good and the staff very attentive. Sunday brunch was something else. What a marvellous choice of great food. No wonder so many locals... More

We did not intend being this far past cheticamp but ended staying just one night and we are glad we did. Sure, the decor is a little dated but the rooms are impeccably clean and I found the beds very comfortable. It's really all you need in a roadside motel. The breakfast menu was excellent and well made. Recommended.

Two couples stayed one night. This motel has been there for quite a long time but is very well maintained and is in an excellent location. Comfy beds with upgraded linens. We had adjoining decks overlooking the Margaree River/Harbour bridge. Lots of interesting short drives in all three directions from this location. Get up early and drive along the Margaree... More

As other reviewers have stated, this is an older property with decor and furniture from the 60"s, which I don't mind, except the beds were rock hard and small. There is no air conditioner. Neither of us slept well and that's all we were looking for...a good night's sleep. The rooms were noisy - I could hear our neighbour snoring.... More

My wife and I we're attend Belle Cote Days and this was the only place we could get. We were skeptical at first because of the online photos and my previous knowledge of the place but we really enjoyed it. The room is dated but clean. I word of caution, there is no air conditioning. I also had the breakfast... More

First I will say I stayed here forty years ago and it was fabulous. My wife and I chose to stay there this past week and I have to say it hasn't changed much. This is not five star, there is no flat screen television or even a telephone in the room but, wifi is available. If you want clean... More

I was here during a wedding in the end of June and have to say that this place is very cute and love all the little ducks & other little stuffed animals. Now I didn't stay here as a guest but I did partake in the buffet breakfast and have to say that it was very delicious food, staff were... More
