Loved this place. We stayed here on our way home from our Cape Breton trip and were sorry we hadn't booked more time here. Being right before the Canso Causeway, this would be a great spot from which to do day trips to Cape Breton. On a small spit, it's almost surrounded by water, with great views all around, including... More

Accomodations and restaurant staff and service were generally very good. The restaurant menu selection,particularly for seafood was very good. The sunset view of the Canso Strait was an ideal setting for the evening.

We stayed in one of the small cottages. It is quite rustic, could use some renovations, but was ok accommodations. Restaurant has beautiful views however service was slow and food just ok considering the cost of the meal.

As always the stay was pleasurable! The staff were very accomodating and super friendly! The food was excellent! This is such a tranquil and relaxing home away from home! I've always loved the Cove, one of my favorite places to visit, however I noticed it needs a little TLC, ex. carpets and screen doors. I will always stay there when... More

Stayed one night on trip to east coast. Would recommend a cabin over a motel room. Restaurant very comfortable and good food. We did not mind the rustic nature of the place although some better wiring in our cabin would have come in handy for laptop and coffee maker. As I recall, wifi was very sketchy, even with an external... More

We spent one night here on our two week trip to the Maritimes. The staff was friendly and the food was good at the restaurant. There is a little gift shop if you need a souvenir. The beds were comfortable and the location is quiet and pretty. The facility has some updated features but many more are needed to bring... More

Stayed in a cabin at the Cove Motel on our way to Cape Breton. The cabin was very "rustic". The entire thing tilted toward the back and was very dark and hot inside. The AC didn't work and if you drop the soap in the shower you have to get out of the tiny stall to pick it up. I... More

Love staying at the Cove Motel, we try to make it there yearly during our vacation. The staff are very pleasant and meet our needs. The food is great and the view of the ocean is awesome. We are looking forward to our next stay there during our next vacation.

This was our 2nd stay at the Cove and we were once again exrtremely pleased. It's a wonderful little motel with lots of charm. It's nice and cozy and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The restaurant has great sea foodand a great view! We will definately stay again next time we are in the area.
