This motel has fairly basic accommodation but it's quiet, clean and warm if that's what you're looking for. There's no coffee maker in the room but an excellent breakfast can be purchased in the main house. No wifi in the rooms.

As long as you are just looking for a place to sleep for the night, this place will do. Pretty much in this small town you have The Sunshine Inn, or B&B's. We really wanted a place to stay with easy access to our luggage, so we chose this one. The Nova Scotia book that is published by the visitor...

We spent one night in one of the cottages which was comfortable and well appointed. It would be a perfect place to spend several nights and make day trips in the area. There is a charm about the place with flowers and lots of yellow to support the sunshine name and to keep things bright. A very good breakfast is...

I’m a single mom on a budget, traveling with three little boys and I really appreciated the price point here. The room price was very reasonable and the kids had a lake to swim in and tonnes of grass to play on. Dave’s blueberry pancakes were amazing (huge portion!) kept them full until mid afternoon. I would recommend this motel...

As rural dwellers we find it very difficult to find quiet accommodations and this place is very peaceful and quiet. Rooms are well soundproofed. Excellent nights sleep.

“The Motel faces the road but is set back we found it to be very peaceful [ and we live in a very very quiet rural area ]The cottages are further back again - the Road is quiet and the views lovely. The web photos, good as they are don't do it justice - we will add some of our own too .;-)”
