I was on my motorcycle traveling through to Halifax to pick up my wife. I always love Digby so I stayed at Hedley House. The room was clean and the view of the Bay of Fundy was unbeatable. After I checked in and got settled the owner/manager invited my over to share some Lobster with them and it was awesome!...

Great spot to rest overnight on the way to whale watch in Tiverton or Brier Island. Less than 45 minutes to the East Ferry. This motel is located on the water with a great view of Digby and beautiful sunsets. Motel is rustic, but clean and well maintained. Don't forget you are in the country so it's not white linens...

Husband and I stayed here three days at the end of a ten day trip to Nova Scotia. The motel is older and certainly not the Ritz Carlton but our room was very clean and our bed was very, very comfortable. The room didn't have AC but when we visited in September we didn't need it. An open window and...

We loved this place! Kitschy in all the right places - colorful chairs and birdhouses on our private deck, and oar with hooks for hanging things, and all the fundamentals too - a small kitchen, tiny but clean bathroom, super comfy mattresses and that view!!! Breakfast was a little haphazard (I think we caught her on a bad day), but...

First of all the room was fine, wifi great, loved the view, owners were nice and accommodating. cons: we could feel the floor shake when the people in the room next to us would walk around. The owners should tell people NOT to leave their dog if they are going to be gone for any length of time, we had...

Thanks for your review and your feedback. I agree people should not leave their dogs that long in the rooms unattended with neigbours in next room. Since we cannot monitor all the rooms for loudness or issues like this you should advise the front desk so as to advise the people not to continue doing this. if were not told...

A beautiful relaxing place, the balcony to the beach is a gem. The hosts were super accommodating and helpful, and very welcoming to our kids. We stayed for only one night, and were very sorry to leave. Next time we will stay here longer.

Location is a above a beach that has a very impressive horizontal tidal effect as in the difference between high tide and low tide being about a quarter of a mile. The beach is accessible from the hotel. Breakfast is good with live folk music. there is a fridge and microwave in each room. Very close to whale watching.

We absolutely loved the motel. Right on the Bay of Fundy, you can see the water from your private balcony. Very dated yet very clean room. Plates cups salt pepper etc supplied. Decent bed. Flat screen TV with cable and WiFi which I suspect works better in higher room numbers (we were room 1, furthest from the office/main house). The...

Wonderful location, private deck overlooking beautiful view, motel is older but everything was clean, bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet. No air conditioning but windows opened and there was a breeze off the water. The continental breakfast was disappointing--basically toast, juice, coffee and two basic kinds of cold cereal-- contrary to reviews that we read beforehand, there...

Ok, so it's not fancy. Rooms are clean, there are kitchenettes that help REAL people plan their day and they are very kind, friendly and helpful here. It is in a beautiful location, incredibly peaceful (when my kids aren't there) and really provides you with what you need to enjoy your vacation. We stayed here two nights using two rooms...
