This place has an unbelievable view ! The room had everything we needed and was super clean- check in and out were both seem less . Parking right out front and a fridge in our room. Fairly close ( to drive ) to Peggy’s Cove and Shaw’s Landing restaurant . The views from the room were unbelievable .

The Cliffy Cove Motel surprised us ( we had reservations in a nearby hotel that had meanwhile ceased to exist) with its warm welcome, good sized room and wonderful view (once the fog cleared). It is only a few kilometers from Peggy's Cove. Nice place.

Despite the beautiful view, these accommodations were very disappointing. It was 2 degrees outside on the day of our stay and the heat was not turned on at all. It was so cold we stayed in our jackets and hats for a few hours until the room came up to temperature. The toilet was running all night long and we realized in the morning that the fridge where we put our food was not even plugged in. The bed was comfortable and the room was tidy but all in all, it was not a comfortable stay, especially for the premium price.

Spent 3 nights here (was supposed to be 2 but we actually stayed another night and changed out trip up). Used this hotel as a 'home base' for sight seeing. Owner is lovely and friendly and accommodating. We traveled with a dog who was welcomed. Rooms were the best we stayed at in Nova Scotia. Amazing view. Restaurants nearby (try Tom's Lobster Shack and Shaw's Landing), and I even went fishing (caught mackerel and pollock). Highly recommended Highly recommended.

Cannot say enough good things about this little place! The view from every room is incredible. We stayed in Rm 1, the balcony was awesome. All the comforts of a 4 star hotel! (Maybe better) Luxurious bedding and high quality mattress! We finally had such a good sleep! Awoke to be the first ones at Peggy's cove which is 4 min up the road. Morning coffee was actually good! After check in she called us to see if we had everything we needed for the night. This place was amazing! Price was amazing as well! The big oversized chairs in the room were perfect to curl up with a great book! Love this place!

Location here is amazing. Some rooms are larger and more expensive than others. If you can you should choose a room with a balcony to the sea views. Three stars for me because we had one of the smallest rooms (no balcony) and it had a bit of a funky smell. Didn't like that the shower was pretty much in the bedroom and there was no comfortable place to sit inside the room. That being said, it was most likely the cheapest and smallest of their rooms. Adequate place to stay for a night but for an extended stay might look elsewhere.

Great location if you are visiting Peggy's Cove, I was able to zoom in on the lighthouse with my camera from there. Beautiful sunsets. You have chairs that you can go out and sit on to watch the water and sunsets. Plain simple room but very clean, no air conditioning, you have fridge and coffee maker in room. No regular TV, you have Netflix instead.

We loved this place! Well-appointed modern rooms with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean just outside our back picture window. The location was just far enough away from all the action at the lighthouse to be quiet and restful, but a short drive to the big attraction.

This is an adorable "ma and pa" motel literally on the Atlantic ocean--the view was amazing. When I looked out the window after dark I saw two working lighthouses! Our room contained two queen beds with a small table attached to the wall and two stools, a fridge and microwave. Everything was very clean. The room had a really nice shower, too. We even were treated to Netflix on the TV--how cool is that? The delightful proprietor had lived just a few miles from where I grew up in Illinois--small world....

When we pulled into the parking lot of the Clifty Cove, we almost turned around. We were tired of mediocre bed and breakfasts and the first impression here was not very good. BUT the room was nice and clean and view from our deck was fabulous - the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset! The sunset made our stay. The only real issue we had with the room is that the bathroom is a bit small and there is no place to place your make-up, toothbrush, etc. that you bring. They really need to install a shelf within reach of the very small sink.
