Accomodations were above average, food and restaurant service was surperb, but lacked internet service. Inconsistent internet service was disappointing and recommend that you ask if service has been consistently corrected before booking. Don't miss eating at the restaurant, as you'll be missing out on a delicious selection of seafood!

Recently stayed at the Cove Motel, for a two night stay. This was our second time there and like our first stay, it was a very enjoyable, peaceful, relaxing and scenic accommodation. We stayed in one of the lower cabins. They are dated but comfortable. As mentioned in another review, the door scrapping on the floor when opening and closing... More

My family and I went to Port Hawksbury for a family wedding and The Cove Motel was between the cermony and the reception. It was quaint place kind of secluded. The only issue, is the bathroom door would scrap along the floor when closing or opening.

The Cove Motel was our start off point for a trip around the Cabot Trail. The staff were great, supper was everything we wanted and the view around the cove was breathtaking. The motel is secluded from the highway ensuring a quite night's sleep.

We have stayed at The Cove multiple times and it remains a beautiful haven. The free-standing cabins are dated, but provide a nice option near the water, away from the motel. Grounds are lovely. Cannot say enough about the staff; they are always pleasant and chatty, friendly and helpful.

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!
