A lovely rustic motel room with all the needed amenities. We arrived later in the evening and we were happy to see the diner was open. We were so lucky to come across this gem. The meal was fabulous! The seafood chowder was delicious as well as the seafood casserole. The desserts were out of this world especially the strawberry... More

Clean quaint hotel rooms in a beautiful location. Fabulous view, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, staff was friendly. Could not enjoy the water view as much at night due to strobe lights on nearby power lines but during the daylight beautiful.

This was a lunch stop for a chartered tour with 45 people. This was a great location to stop on the way to the Highlands. Excellent food, great service - fast and efficient. The best seafood chowder I've had yet and good lobster roll. Nice gift shop. Also looks like a nice place to stay.

Wonderful service, sit in Dolly's area. The food is great. Didn't stay at the hotel. The breakfast is really good and the service was quick and efficient. Will visit again next summer when in the area.

We didn't want to drive too far on our way from Halifax Airport before stopping for one night on our way to Cape Breton. Cove Motel is located in a beautiful spot with water all around and is very close to the causeway. We enjoyed seeing some birds both that evening and the next morning. The room was basic but...

We were looking for this type of property when we booked The Cove Motel. The room was clean and we appreciated the fact the property is off the highway. We did have an issue with our room but it was quickly resolved. The restaurant was much more than we expected! Overall, we were very satisfied with our 2 night stay... More

My son and I tend to stay in full service hotels but with no vacancies we were directed to the Cove Motel. I was curious as in reviews it seemed much like the motels my parents took me and sisters to as kids. It was like an updated version. Mini fridge, flat screen TV A/C great restaurant, comfy beds, laundry... More

Convenient jumping off point to the Cape Breton Trail, clean, comfortable rooms. The location is very scenic, despite the power lines that are hard to ignore. The restaurant is very good. Overall a good value experience.
