Fantastic cabins! Very clean, updated, and spacious. The owners are so gracious, kind, and engaged with all their guests and we were thrilled to be a part of their wonderful beach area. Restaurant across the road is handy with friendly staff and yummy eats! We'll be back in the Fall. Dan. Manchester NH

I've never felt the need to leave a review until this experience. Witnessed young adults being yelled at and intimidated and called rude names. Family members were treated poorly, like we were an inconvenience that wouldn't be tolerated. Ran out of ALL water on the day of a wedding and offered no partial reimbursement nor any recommendations. Sister in law... More

Could not have asked for a better view nor accommodations while we were in Nova Scotia. We were more than impressed with cleanliness and how well managed the property is! Very important to feel safe while on travels and also when with young children. We had a 2 bedroom cottage and it was perfect for our family of 5. The... More

Stayed one night at the Cape View Motel and enjoyed every minute. Owner is helpful and very friendly. Room was clean with spectacular view of the Beach. Price is extremely reasonable. A quick drive down the hill and you are at a lovely sandy beach in an uncrowded setting. Very relaxing time !

Its a perfectly decent motel & cabins with the best possible view in this part of Nova Scotia. Right on the ocean. Our King room, booked through TripAdvisor, is excellent for the price range. Clean, excellent wi-fi, excellent TV and channels, comfortable reclining chair, desk, fridge ... what does one expect for Cdn $100-ish? You get more than you pay... More

First of all, the owners were A1. The cottage was perfect, the view and the beach were spectacular and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. There is not one bad thing to say except that we had to leave. We will definitely be back to that perfect gem! Also a great area to walk and run.

My wife and I stayed one night at this lovely motel. Built in 1968, the owners are Albertans who've run the motel for eight years. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. Our room (we lucked out with the corner room with two sets of windows overlooking the beach) was very clean, modernized with a LCD TV, satellite receiver, microwave and... More

The people here are very friendly, couldn't do enough for us, the view of the beach at Mavillette is spectacular. There is nice seating outside for just relaxing and seeing the beach below the motel, with the lighthouse in the background. They have hummingbird feeders on the windows with suction cups, that my wife had to find and buy. Hotel... More

Stopped here on our trip along the coast. Friendly hosts and a comfortable cottage greeted us. Amazing beach just a short walk away. The cottage is clean and comfortable. ...but nothing fancy. A decent restaurant is close by. You can't beat the views.
