This motel is in a beautiful natural setting and is a short drive to Port Hawkesbury. I liked having the option of staying in a self contained cabin. The accommodation was simple but adequate. I did not eat in the dining room.

My wife and I stayed in one of their cabins for three nights for our anniversary. It rained the entire time..haha...the cabin was clean and comfortable. Housekeeping was offered to us and fresh towels were brought to us. Very good service. We will be going back for sure.

We loved our stay at the Cove Motel. The people were wonderful, professional and funny. This is not your typical brand hotel, it is beautiful! It is the perfect place to stay if you are heading towards the Cabot trail. The restaurant was excellent!

Room was clean and quiet, king bed was comfortable. It came with a large closet with 2 suitcase stands, power bar with 4 usb outlets and an ac that worked perfectly. Outside bench, park at the door and much more.

We really appreciate that The Cove was dog-friendly. We had cabin #230 - nice waterfront location. Arrived late in the day; unfortunately the following day the weather was horrific --- high winds, cold rain - so we couldn't really enjoy the outside much. Cabins - yes, rustic. Fine for a night, but we wouldn't want to stay longer...There's potential to... More

The Cove Motel has SO much potential! It has a terrific location, close to the highway, close to the Cabot Trail, a short drive to grocery stores etc. and as others have mentioned on it's own peninsula and it really has some lovely views! Clearly this could be an outstanding place given all of these natural assets! The grounds are... More

As group of friends on motorcycles we stayed there this past Friday night. I had no idea this place even existed! What a little gem & unique location. This isn't the Ritz for sure but it has a very serene feel about it. Yes the rooms could use some updating but for the price.... what the heck. The walls are... More

The only issue I had was the beds were not too comfortable...it is an older motel, but it could use updating. We were in a back room so there was absolutely no noise. The attached restaurant was very good and the waitress was very very helpful and friendly.

Don’t let the decaying road sign on the main road fool you. This is an excellent operation. The motel is located on its own peninsula in the Straight of Canso. I had a beautiful view of the water and Cape Breton Island right through my window. I had a good-sized room with a very comfortable king-sized bed. The TV had... More

The setting and the grounds for the Cove Motel are really nice, sitting on the water with a lot of space for walking around. We stayed in one of the cabins and loved the setting. This property could be a wonderful place if they would update the rooms. The cabin had a musty smell, was dark and there was no... More
