Stayed there in late-August 2014 on my way back from Cape Breton. A very clean and affordable hotel. The rooms are simple, but the view and service are exquisite. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend the hotel to others.

We called in that we would arrive late. No problem: we were told which room was ours, the lights were on, our breakfast for next morning was set aside, the yoghurt in a bowl with ice cubes. The next day the view of the bay right before the motel was unparalleled. A very nice and peaceful motel indeed.

Very clean motel awesome view of the bay. The only issue was the smell of mildew on the blankets. Would recommend to stay here. Great location right on the highway. Very quaint the lady gave us boxed breakfast provided information of where to eat. Easy check in

This place was exactly as advertised. Arranged for late night check in. Woke up and went for a morning jog then used the rock for some seaside stretching. What a lovely location. Clean and accessible.

This was a great hotel. We booked two rooms which were beside each other. One room was a bit musty smelling but hey were big rooms. Very nice hostess. We had a beautiful picnic breakfast given to us when we checked in. A great night sleep and the view was wonderful. We really loved the decks. Would stay again for... More

Stayed here which was close to our whale watching excursion the next day. We had great rooms, the only two rooms on the top floor so we were very private. The view was wonderful. The rooms we had were very big. The decks joined too so that was nice for two couples...didn't have to go out and in each others... More

This little place had a great view. Each room has its own balcony overlooking the water. The room was nice a clean although it did have a musty smell to it. The bathroom was spotless. We weren’t looking for a 5 star room just a "clean place to sleep and shower". This little place covered all our bases. Yes I... More

Lovely spot, spacious rooms and beautifully clean. Just opposite a lovely covered jetty, views out over the bay from your deck are lovely. Pat is very helpful, but less outgoing than most locals we met. Coffee maker comes with tea, coffee and hot chocolate, plus takeaway cups for when you leave, you get ice to keep your breakfast yoghurt cool... More

Wow! What a beautiful spot! The room met the basic needs and was very clean, the bathroom was sparkling and, the view from the balcony (each room has its own) was stellar! We watched the sun set and moon rise over the harbour while breathing in that fresh ocean air. Crawled into bed with the screen door wide open and... More

I wasn't sure about staying here because of some reviews. Overall, this was a good stay. Clean room, clean bathroom, beautiful view, nice landscaping. I think the owner puts in their own ideas of what kind of accommodation they want to provide and I respect that. I was a little worried about seeing cats in the lobby/office, but the room... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you had a good stay. Places to eat do close early in this area. It is good to be prepared for that. If you are planning a late arrival, stop to eat on the way. More
