It's just as I remember it from some 45 years ago when I came to visit this area as a child.
I thought that we were really living the high style as this was surely the most upscale hotel in the area. I was so pleased to find that it still is and hasn't lost its charm. The grounds are lovely and the patio area is quite inviting. Be sure to stop and have a cocktail! The lobby and common areas are quite grand with many places to sit, play games, and enjoy conversation. (There are two computers here where you can check your email, though there is also free WiFi in the rooms.) Off the lobby is an enclosed atrium where you can sit and enjoy the view that extends to the water. The cost seemed reasonable, particularly since the breakfast buffet is included. We found that food is extremely expensive in Nova Scotia, so it was so nice to have a break on the old pocketbook. This was a very nice buffet. Dinner, on the other hand, was just OK (and not included). The prime rib was overcooked (which seems to be commonplace in NS) and the Reuben was just OK. The best part of dinner were the dill muffins in the bread basket - very good! Offsetting the ordinary dinner was the very attentive service. (There are other dinner options in Digby that are slightly less expensive, but we never did find a place in Nova Scotia that had really good food. Even the Digby Scallops were a let-down.) The rooms are comfortable and clean in this hotel. Although they are small, they appear to have been recently updated. I especially liked the the wide and long hallways... just like the hotels from back in the day... and this is the real thing!
