Location wise, you can't get much closer to Peggy's Cove. The motel also has a lovely ocean view and you can hear the waves crashing at night. Reception was very friendly and quick. Apple TV in the rooms but wifi was dodgy at best. Room was not a bad size, and furnishings fairly modern. Room was clean but very musty!... More

We loved this quaint little motel, very updated rooms, very friendly staff, and the sound of the waves crashing through the screen door to the patio was wonderful! Very close to Peggys Cove, and the Rhubarb restaurant just down the street was fantastic for dinner. Very comfy beds too!

Our hosts were very friendly and family oriented. Our room was tasteful and very clean! The owners are renovating and the cozy quality really shows! All the area attractions are minutes away. We were very happy there for the week we stayed. Would definitely recommend.

This is a small property but had an amazing view, with large windows in the front and the back ( facing the ocean). There was a small frig, microwave so we were able to fix some sandwiches and have a picnic on the table in the rear. The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable with clean... More

We needed a hotel close to Peggy's Cove and we didn't have a lot of options. For some strange reason this place had ok reviews. So I'm writing this review to warn people and tell the real situation. Yes it was close to the light house and we had the ocean as a view. But the room was dirty and... More

I stayed here on an overnight trip to explore Peggy's Cove. It's a quaint motel where every room has an amazing view of the little harbour. It's only a 5 minute (or less) drive to Peggy's Cove and you are right on the water. I was able to watch the sunset and then the sunrise at Peggy's Cove and still... More

Stayed a couple of nights at the Clifty Cove while visiting family in Hacketts Cove. Motel was very clean and everything was functional. You are about 5 minutes to Peggy's Cove and close to an hour to downtown Halifax. Grab some groceries in Upper Tantillon before heading out here as there is not much around. A couple of restaurants and... More
