Ocean Hillside Bed And Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 14 Digby B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Ocean Hillside is a beautiful property, overlooking the Annapolis Basin, very close to the Digby Pines hotel.

The entire property, and the house, are immaculate and very well maintained. Our room, the maroon room, was decorated in Victorian style that some would call dated, but fits with the rest of the house. The hosts, Maria and Bob, are very pleasant and will chat with you as much, or as little as you want.

The maroon room is very spacious and has a wonderful view of the basin and the property's gardens. It also had cable TV and free wifi.

Bob is a retired executive chef and it shows in the quality of the complimentary breakfast. The cranberry scones were wonderful, especially with some of the lemon curd. Strawberry muffins were next and they were fantastic. Better still was the absolutely flawless egg Benedict. This was one of the best I've ever had.

$95 taxes in for all this, who could ask for more?

Bob and Maria run a first class B&B and are great hosts. The property has some of the best views you could imagine and the house is lovely. We were greeted by Maria who is a lovely lady and made us feel right at home. Bob is a chef and made us a five star breakfast. This is the perfect B&B in my opinion. Digby is a great town to visit and Bob and Maria will treat you like royalty.

Room Tip: The downstairs suite is large and has outdoor ground level entrance. Didn't see the other rooms...

The house is located on a hill slope, close to the ferry to Saint John, and it has great views of the waterfront. Our suite was big, spotless and really comfortable. Maria gave us very good advices about what to see and where to eat, as well as the whale watching. Bob, who used to work as a chef, made us delicious breakfasts. I highly recommend this place to stay in the Digby area.

Bob & Maria are wonderful people, who made our stay memorable and my birthday extra special.
We had the opportunity of chatting with this lovely couple and found out that they have been residents of Digby for 3 decades, after travelling all over the world on work . In fact the Ocean Hillside B&B was the first one in Digby and has been around for over 2 decades. The house , which is located on a steep hill slope, is elegantly furnished and maintained perfectly. It has gorgeous views of the Annapolis basin and is very close to the ferry from Digby to New Brunswick.
Our suite was huge and tastefully furnished . It had a beautiful patio which overlooked the landscaped gardens, as well as a wonderful view of the waterfront.
Bob, who is a retired executive chef, baked a lovely cake for my birthday and made us a wonderful breakfast. Maria, is such a lovely person, whose creativity can be seen throughout the house, vis-à-vis her beautiful handmade quilts,lampshades and so on.
We were there for just one night, but our stay was so comfortable, we may return to Digby just to spend a few more days at the Ocean Hillside B&B.

My wife and I stayed here for one night. Located near the New Brunswick Ferry, the B&B is located atop rising ground overlooking the Bay. The view from the house and patio are great. We had wonderful hosts and the place was spotless. Breakfast was delicious.
