This little motel is out of the sixties but the rooms are spacious and clean. The attached restaurant offered some interesting local choices at good prices. This is a nice spot to drop your bags for a stopover if you are touring or golfing in the area.

You would be hardpressed to go hungry here. The two piece fish and chips was huge, especially the fish. The fish was properly cooked and the fries were decent.

Portions are more than adequate... More

After eating lobster for 3 times in 2 days the lobster on homemade bread with garlic mashed potatoes was the best of this whole 6 week trip. I wish I lived closer to Bugwash and Hillcrest View

Great service. Food was delicious. Should put down the AC a bit as couple next to us had to move once another table became vacant as too cold there. Would definitely go back. Was steady flow coming in and out.
