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

The Clifty Cove Motel was a quaint, clean place to stay in a beautiful location! The owners are wonderful people making sure that you have everything you need for a comfortable stay! They are very hospitable and I felt like I was returning to a place that I had visited many times before owned by friends, not staying at for... 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

I recently spent 2 weeks in the Maritimes we stayed at the Clifty Cove for one night and I wish I had of booked more time there. It is right on the ocean and I saw the best sunset of my entire holiday here. It is comfortable and peaceful and my sleep was restful. I've been telling everyone about it.... More

Booked the Clifty Cove based on Trip Adviser reviews. After staying there I would say that many reviewers expectations were far different than mine. The Clifty Cove Motel is very basic. When people write about their "private deck" understand that this is an exaggeration of the truth. Half of the 12 rooms have a 4'x4' little deck that is right... More

My husband and I booked this place months ago. What a great place to stay. The owners were awesome. Our room was a 5 star. The view from our balcony was beautiful. Sat down by the rocks. Very quiet and peaceful. Three minute drive to Peggys Cove. Restaurants close by. We will definitely stay here again.

We made a panic, last minute booking to relax before heading home after busy holiday. Four days at the very clean, and friendly, family run Clifty Cove Motel was the prize. There was no air conditioning except for the ocean breeze that worked just fine and smelled great.

We spent Natal Day weekend at the Clifty Cove Motel. It was gorgeous weather. The rooms have been remodeled recently and are beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The new showers were lovely. But the best part was the view. The granite rocks over looking the ocean were just gorgeous. With two Adirondack chairs sitting on the rocks it was... More
