I was there on July 11th,12th and 13th for my Aunts burial and my cousin Robyns Run in Mulgrave. Many of my relatives stayed there too that weekend. It was a sad occasion but it turned out to be one of our first annual cousin reunions. We've decided that every year we are all returning here for a fun filled... More

After touring Cape Breton Island on our motorcycle, this was our stop for the night. We received a discount for being on a motorcycle. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The view from the restaurant and our room was amazing, facing towards the water and Cape Breton Island. The room was very spacious and clean. We had a wonderful... More

If you like different and trendy, this is the place to stop. We stopped here due to it's location. Behind half way between Halifax and Cape breton made this hotel an idea spot to catch some rest. The spot was very unique with a beautiful view. The staff were very nice and the service was good. The only bad point... More

Thanks for the review! I'm truly sorry that several of our guests have found their rooms to be musty. I've seen how hard our housekeeping staff work to care for the rooms, but on a humid day such as the ones we've recently had, I understand that the humidity can make things uncomfortable. We're absolutely committed to making your stay... More

The Cove Motel was central to our Nova Scotia experience. Situated between the mainland and Cape Breton it gave us access to most of Nova Scotia for our 3 day stay. Reasonable prices and excellent food!

Excellent location, beautiful views, friendly staff. I was told the food at the restaurant on site was great but the dining room closed at 8 p.m. which was too early for us. Regarding the cabin. It was very private, looked modern on the outside which is always nice. The inside however needed some updating. The floor had carpet which was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cove Motel for one night and enjoyed every moment of our time there. We arrived close to 8 PM and checked in. We inquired whether or not we could get something to take to our room since I heard the dining room closes at 8. The woman at the front desk assured me... More

The Restaurant was very good, Restaurant service was excellent. The Cottage was clean but much to dark. It was finished all in wood. a little paint wouldn't have hurt. The wireless internet service was totally useless.

Hi, Charlie. I'm glad you enjoyed our restaurant, and sorry that our internet service was unsatisfactory. Due to our location off the mainland, we do not have fiber optic internet available to us, and we get our internet signal via satellite. It is generally quite reliable (we run a speed test twice daily to verify the quality of our connection),... More

Location was great with amazing view. Room was a good size and had ironing board, fridge and hair dryer. Only complaint was the room has a musty smell. But once we opened the window it went away. Found the price a little high for the basic room (other similar motels had a small breakfast included for the same price), but... More
