We stayed in one of the cabins behind the motel, which is on a little body of water in front, and the Canso straight behind. King bed was very comfy, and that room had a normal sized bathtub and shower, and robes. Plenty of room, and a bar fridge. We swam in the water out front, it was great. Lay... More

I do not understand the three negative reviews i just read. They call the cabins dated. I call them rustic. Ok so the shower is a bit small. Deal with it! The price is certainly fair considering the scenery and size of cabin rooms and where u are. Yeah ok they should get rid of the bed spreads (i hate... More

Quiet and off the main road. The room was. clean and comfortable. We were on the waterfront with outside seating that made interaction with other guests easy. The restaurant on the premises was reasonably priced with good service. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

We requested a room last minute and received a king room. It was clean and nice. The restaurant was outside our door and was very good. The view was calm and serene. The service was prompt and friendly, able to answer all our questions. The atmosphere was nicely informal.

The Cove Motel is located right on the Canso strait and the views are great. The staff were very friendly, the meals are of good value and tasty! Unfortunately, the rooms are dated and the air conditioners are quite noisy which made sleeping difficult.

We had a confirmed reservation for a cabin with a king that was given to others. Cabins felt very worn. Shower was so small it was hard to use. Room was 82 degrees when we checked in and it took a long time to cool down. Very spotty wifi which we never did get to work in the room, and... More

Stayed one night here on our Nova Scotia roodtrip and found a comfortable and clean room. Had a restful sleep. Was pleasantly surprised with the great food at a reasonable price in their restaurant. Seafood pasta had more seafood than pasta and enjoyed a great breakfast the next morning. I'd certainly recommend.

The Cove Motel is a great location to stop for a couple of days to tour Southern Cape Breton and Eastern mainland Nova Scotia. Another couple and ourselves, stayed there August 3 & 4/2015. We were on motorcycles and we shared a cottage. The cottages, while very clean, were a bit dark inside. Need more natural light or brighten up... More

On this Maritime Provinces trip we stayed in nine different hotels/motels. Of these The Cove rated as average. They do have a washer & dryer available which is a great convenience. The setting, while attractive, had high power lines running across and is not particularly convenient. We were in the motel , not a cabin. The beds were comfortable and... More
