Nothing special...but very adequate. Location is good. There is an on-site restaurant but we didn't eat there since there are so many restaurants in town. Room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed for a night while waiting to take the ferry to St. John's NB. The price was ok. It has a great view of the water. Unfortunately their restaurant was shut down when we were there. The room was ok, it was clean and well supplied. The air conditioner was a little noisy. The staff was very friendly and... More

I had the Solomon Gundy which was great, followed by pan seared haddock. My partner had the munchies basket followed by the scallop dinner. The service was great (thanks Chelsea)! The food was great: fresh and cooked to perfection . We were too full for dessert!

We stayed at the Admiral Digby Inn and so naturally went to the restaurant for our meals out of convenience. The place was far from crowded so we got exemplary service! One of the waitresses was "in training" but she did very well. We had both dinner and breakfast here and enjoyed them both. The Digby Scallops were wonderful and... More

We had breakfast at the Admiral Digby Inn because we were staying at the motel. We gave ourselves plenty of time so we could enjoy breakfast and catch a ferry. The restaurant was not particularly crowded but everything was very, very slow. The server took our order then delivered breakfast to another table that had arrived 15 minutes after we... More

A nice hotel overlooking the harbour in Digby NS. It's an older hotel but everything is kept up nice, and there is a pool and it's close to town and the ferry terminal. The only negative would be that there is no free breakfast which is becoming the norm for most hotels nowadays. That's what travelers want and they will... More

We stopped at Digby en route from Halifax to Nova Scotia. The Admiral Digby offers standard motel type rooms of a good standard. We were fortunate to have a seaview from our room.

Ate two meals here, supper and breakfast. Both were very good. The staff at both meals was friendly and service was prompt. My visit was at the end of the season, and they were winding down to close for the winter. Scallops were local and well prepared. Sausage with the breakfast was very mild.

Thank John N

Our restaurant uses all local fresh seafood including Lobster, Scallops clams and Haddock, or if you prefer have a steak cooked to perfection. All our dishes are made fresh everyday to order, enjoy a glass of wine or beer and watch the fishing boats return to Digby after a day on the water, no driving after a long day just walk to your room or sit on our deck and relax nova scotia style.
