Came here to spend a few days in the area with some friends. I had a good experience here. The rooms were tidy and well looked after. The owner was friendly and polite. We even got newspapers delivered there. all in all I enjoyed my time there.

We arrived in a thick of fog to a peaceful sanctuary. Russ and his wife were wonderful hosts with even a continental breakfast. Mavillette Beach was a wonderful place to go and lose yourself to the sounds of the waves or watch the sandpipers dance along the soft sand chasing in and out of the approaching waves. Thanks for a...

Fantastic cabins! Very clean, updated, and spacious. The owners are so gracious, kind, and engaged with all their guests and we were thrilled to be a part of their wonderful beach area. Restaurant across the road is handy with friendly staff and yummy eats! We'll be back in the Fall. Dan. Manchester NH

I've never felt the need to leave a review until this experience. Witnessed young adults being yelled at and intimidated and called rude names. Family members were treated poorly, like we were an inconvenience that wouldn't be tolerated. Ran out of ALL water on the day of a wedding and offered no partial reimbursement nor any recommendations. Sister in law...

When you come here with some sense of entitlement and no regard for other guests you will be in the wrong place. If you come for one night or one week, spend $1 or a $1000's you will be expected to use the same smoking area as others on the property. This whole review is because of one "young adult"...

Could not have asked for a better view nor accommodations while we were in Nova Scotia. We were more than impressed with cleanliness and how well managed the property is! Very important to feel safe while on travels and also when with young children. We had a 2 bedroom cottage and it was perfect for our family of 5. The...

Stayed one night at the Cape View Motel and enjoyed every minute. Owner is helpful and very friendly. Room was clean with spectacular view of the Beach. Price is extremely reasonable. A quick drive down the hill and you are at a lovely sandy beach in an uncrowded setting. Very relaxing time !

Spent four nights at this place and The place was older but in great shape and very clean. The price was awesome and the beds were so comfortable. The hosts, Russ and Carol, were very welcoming.

Its a perfectly decent motel & cabins with the best possible view in this part of Nova Scotia. Right on the ocean. Our King room, booked through TripAdvisor, is excellent for the price range. Clean, excellent wi-fi, excellent TV and channels, comfortable reclining chair, desk, fridge ... what does one expect for Cdn $100-ish? You get more than you pay...

First of all, the owners were A1. The cottage was perfect, the view and the beach were spectacular and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. There is not one bad thing to say except that we had to leave. We will definitely be back to that perfect gem! Also a great area to walk and run.

My wife and I stayed one night at this lovely motel. Built in 1968, the owners are Albertans who've run the motel for eight years. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. Our room (we lucked out with the corner room with two sets of windows overlooking the beach) was very clean, modernized with a LCD TV, satellite receiver, microwave and...
