Let me start by saying I rarely bother to review places my wife and I stay but I feel a few words about the Holdsworth House in Digby Nova Scotia are essential. We have stayed at B&B's in Canada and Europe for over thirty years now and NOTHING can match this place for uniqueness, cleanliness and old fashioned hospitality and friendliness. Margaret and Tony have created a special place that as their website says takes you back into the 19th century as you walk through the door. From the food cooked on the huge open hearth fire to the furnishings and decor it is an experience we truly savoured. This place, the oldest house in Digby is located a five minute walk to the Main Street where all manner of shops, restaurants and pubs can be found. The people we found to be extremely friendly to the extent my wife has called the place happyville
This is also the first B&B we have visited where breakfast is not served in the house. Margaret and Tony also have a small cafe/diner on the Main Street where the most amazing food is served. We opted for the scallop omelet and it is also an experience not to be missed. WE WILL BE BACK.
