There aren't too many hotel/motel-type accommodations close to Peggy's Cove, which is where we needed to be. (There are several B&Bs, but we needed flexible breakfast hours). I was leery about a 2-star, older, side-of-the-road motel, but our options were limited, the reviews were great and the price was reasonable. Upon our arrival we were greeted warmly and our room...

The motel has a fantastic location with picture windows looking out onto the water. You go to sleep listening to the sounds of the water and the birds. Is close by to hiking areas, lots of scenic areas and, of course, Peggy's Cove. Great places to eat nearby or within a short drive that you don't mind due to the... More

If you are always closeted in warm clothing to offset the cold in Canada, then it is prudent to escape to a sea side holiday. The Clifty Cove Motel in Halifax is just the place with glorious views of the sea from your rooms. Looking out from your hotel window the Atlantic Ocean is there in all its majesty only... More

This motel is literally right next to the ocean. Fabulous view from your room. Set on a lovely cove very near Peggy's Cove. Rooms were immaculately clean. It is not a fancy place but has everything you need and furniture and fittings all very tidy. Owners very friendly and helpful. Going to sleep with the sound of the ocean and... More

We drove from ontario in one day so we were running very late for check in (it was like 10:30 p.m!!) called ahead and they said no problem. They were very kind when we got there despite us being so late. Room was great., super clean and well cared for. And we had our dog with us as well which... More

This place isn't far from Peggy's Cove. A little bit of updating on the rooms and this would be a top notch motel. The rooms are very clean and spacious. They got the views,location and the right friendly service.Not to far from places to eat or catch something of the wharf and BBQ it. We would stop here again and... More

Coming from the seaside in Australia, and after living in Alberta for 7 months, my husband and I were itching to see the sea again on our holiday in Nova Scotia. At this motel, we just had to look out the window to revel at the sight and hear the sounds of the sea to be reminded of home. Clean,... More

Attended a wedding in the area, and although it was only half an hour away from home we decided to make an extended weekend out of it. So instead of driving back home after the wedding we decided to book this motel for two nights. Wow, we were pleasantly surprised to find this gem in our own backyard. The owners... More

Our first stop in Nova Scotia was the Clifty Cove Motel. The owner was very helpful in directing us to a place to eat. The room was clean and roomy. Not sure why there was an electrical outlet at the ceiling. The Ocean front view was lovely especially at night when we could see the lighthouse lights flashing. This location... More

We are from Saskatchewan. This is the most beautiful place in the world, combined with friendly owners. We stayed for two nites and wish we would have stayed more. Lots to do and see in the area, to spend at least three days, you must travel to Lunenburg and back and visit all the places like Mahone Bay, Chester and... More
