Reviewed 2 July 2014

We arrived in West Dover without a place to stay- wonderful area by the way!- and were told to call the West Dover Harbour View Cottages! Even though they were not officially opening for a few more days they very nicely rented us a lovely lovely room!!! And also left us a nice continental breakfast with coffee.
Nice staff, amazing room- clean and great view! Go here!!!!!

We stayed in room 9 for 5 nights and couldn't be more pleased by our choice. Our room was clean, roomy and comfortable. Every day started with breakfast. It is supposed to be a continental breakfast, but it is not like any continental breakfast I've ever had anywhere else. Things were a bit different each but delicious - especially the homemade orange, peach and mango jam and homemade bread. It also sometimes included an assortment of fresh berries or other fruit, perfectly boiled eggs, cheese, yogurt (greek and regular), deviled eggs, homemade beans, and other home baked goods (wrapped in case you might need it for a snack later). Sometimes we ate inside with other guests and other times we ate at our private table on the porch where we had a beautiful view. Each night ended curled up in a comfy bed with perfect reading lamp. And in between - amazing hiking, kayaking, sightseeing just up the road. I am already planning our next stay in the cottages with my son and his godmother.

What a cute little two-bedroom cottage we rented after a gorgeous visit to Peggy's Cove.

We were warmly greeted despite the late hour of our arrival, and the accommodations were spotless, recently built/renovated, and comfortable.

The two-bedroom cottage we were given had rooms on opposite sides of the cottage, a small kitchen, and a great balcony.

So close to Peggy's Cove that it was worth the drive - we even went back to Peggy's Cove the next morning on our way out of town.

Definitely worth the stop.

So beautiful and clean, our room was hotel comfort at its finest and at so reasonable a cost. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and a spectacular vista from your front porch seating area or curl up in the wing chair with your book (snuggly blanket provided). Just a few minutes away from Peggys Cove....you'll want to stay :-)

We stopped here ready to settle in after a long day of city driving and sight seeing. We were in room 9 which is wonderfully decorated and had the feel of a b&b room more than a room at an inn. This is more like a motel setting with several cottages in the back of the property along with the main building/rooms closer to the roadside. The room was clean and very nicely decorated and painted, however had a slightly musty smell which we assume was due to it being closed up and across the road from the water front and salty air. Breakfast was adequate and there was a lot to chose from. In the morning we could hear quite a bit of movement in the adjoining room which may have been the kitchenette/office area or linen closet/supply room. All in all, this is a nice place to stay.

This property is in a very nice location with great views and good access to Peggys Cove. The staff seem friendly.
It wasn't obvious from the website that the cottages were actually duplexes, and had we known this we would not have booked. There was a large group in the attached cottage and we heard them walking around, closing doors, etc. They were nice people who were not doing anything outrageous and we all joked about what time we'd all be getting up, and how to avoid using our bathrooms at the same time.
The cottage had 2 spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds however the living area was small and cluttered (kitchenette plus dining table and a single recliner, plus a TV on a very high shelf that we found impossible to watch without hurting our necks).

My wife and I were unsure where to stay the night after visiting Peggy's Cove but found the Harbour View and really enjoyed it. The room was wonderful, all redone and modern. Very comfortable, the only issue was that we could hear the people in the room below us a little too clearly. To be fair we were warned that this could be an issue and choose the room anyway. The breakfast was very nice and the staff were wonderful and very friendly. We would certainly recommend this to our friends travelling in the area.

Room Tip: If possible get a room where nobody is above or below you.
