“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 22 July 2008

This motel has been named Motel of the Year for all of Nova Scotia, and with good reason. The room we occupied for two nights was clean and comfortable, including a small refrigerator, microwave and writing desk, in addition to the usual furnishings. Clean, new laundry equipment is available to guests. The room was reasonably priced. The owner--for the last 30 years--- Marianne, was extremely friendly, gracious and kind. Breakfasts are available at the motel for guests at very economical prices. Barb, who served our breakfasts, is most pleasant and personable. Likewise with the room-cleaning staff. This motel is highly recommended.

My wife, son, and brother stayed here on a recent nostalgic trip to Yarmouth. Some aspects of the decor were older - but it made it a bit more nostalgic. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly - and let's not forget Cujo (the owners little dog at check-in. An excellent place to stay - I will recommend it and will stay here again when the opportunity arises.

If I'm ever in Yarmouth again, I will be staying at the Voyageur Motel. It is an unassuming place on the outside, but inside is as close to perfect as I've seen. Everything is spotless and welcoming. The bathroom has the usual supply of towels but as well it has a basket with all the necessary supplies for a relaxing bath. the sheets are an inviting shade of cream and as I have found so often in other establishments, the mattresses are not board hard, but comfortably firm.
In the morning the staff welcomed us into the diningroom and we were served a delicious breakfast. To the owner , Marianne, I say "thanks" for making my stay so comfortable.

I am a business consultant and I travel throughout the province of Nova Scotia quite often. When I travel to the Yarmouth area I always make a point of staying at the Voyageur because it has everything I need including an excellent food service, clean rooms and friendly staff as well as being conveniently close to downtown Yarmouth, reasonably priced and open year round - what else could you ask for?

I was curious about what others thought about the Voyageur and was alarmed to read the review by the person who recently stayed there who titled their comments "Bates Motel". I don't think they could have been staying at the same motel I was. I found the room to be immaculate with no dirt or dust and the bed clothes and the bathroom were spotlessly clean and fresh. As a non-smoker I am very sensitive to the smell of smoke and there was not the slightest hint of cigarette smoke in the room.

Maryanne, the owner and manager, is a wonderful, upbeat and positive person which certainly adds character and ambiance to this facility.

I would recommend the Voyageur to anyone and frequently do, to my colleagues and to my clients.
