All in all, we had a great stay at the Cove. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the glassed in dining room had a beautiful view. Our only drawback was that they decided to close the restaurant for breakfast the day we were leaving with only a sign in the front office area as notification, but that was a... More

Bathroom was very small. The train that went by the first night was a bit shocking, thought it was coming into the cabin. But service was good. Great location. Food was great in the restaurant. Great place for the dog.

Sorry about the scare with the train! The tracks are a good half a km away across the pond on the mainland, so that train must have been going very fast to make such a racket. Despite the scare, I'm glad you enjoyed our restaurant and found our cabin and grounds to be a nice place to relax with your... More

October tree color greets you down the winding road to the cove motel. Nice easy chairs, the cove out the front door and a great lobster dinner made out stopover a memorable one! Although it was a windy rainy night, the glass porch dining area was cozy and warm. Lucky we found this hotel on the last weekend of the... More

The Cove is such a great place. It sits right on the water and a half mile down a wooded road. The view is superb, the restaurant is fine and the people are super. In the restaurant I had a seafood stir fry and my wife had a salmon fettuccini and both were really good.

After a lousy experience at tge Mavin Gypsy, we traveled the Trail in search of another accomodations but to no avail. We found this little gem. The hostess let us go and view a few rooms and cabins. We chose a cabin as we had water view. Very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was awesome! Great food, beautiful ambiance of... More

We decided to do a Cape Breton Colour Run and made this the destination for the first day before entering Cape Breton. Staff was wonderful, friendly and very helpful despite a minor mix up with the reservation. They went out of their way to make sure we had a room and were OK. Would stay there again in a heart...

We literally blew into the Cove Motel with an afternoon storm. Following the large blue buoys down the lane the motel soon came into view. The office staff was extremely friendly and offered us the choice of a motel room or the cabin that we had reserved. We opted for the more rustic cabin. Nothing fancy but it provided everything...

Nice king room with water view through the mist but you can't plan the weather. Good start for touring Cape Breton. No need to go out for dinner the restaurant had great food and wine at reasonable prices. Laundromat too!! All staff very friendly and helpful.

Driving from Halifax, we stopped and ate dinner at this restaurant and the food was excellent. I had fresh steamed Nova Scotia lobster and a dinner salad for $18.00. My friend had the pan-fried fish and it was great too. Hot and delicious homemade bread is served before the main course. The view is amazing because the restaurant is located... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your meal! It was fun putting on a lobster special to complement our best-seller, the pan-fried haddock. See you next time! More
