“All the Comforts of Home”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

In early September we stayed in Summerside for a quick overnight stay. We had been staying at many B&B's in Nova Scotia of the heritage building type, and this was a welcome change to the Victorian decorating and cramped bathrooms that are often associated with older B&B's. We had a very nice bedroom on the main level. It was spacious, clean and well-appointed. It was nice to watch the morning news on a proper television. I really can't say enough about the breakfast. It was the biggest B&B breakfast I have ever experienced. Not only was quantity in evidence, quality was the main attraction. It was so abundant that we asked our hosts if they could pack up the lovely fresh scones to eat on the road (They were delicious). It was a very relaxing stop on our trip and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose the main level rooms if you have large suitcases like we did.

We had the opportunity to stay at Driftfood Heights B&B which is conveniently located within Summerside and close to the Confederation Trail. The owners Liz & Sean are genuinely kind and helpful. They have wonderful personalities for running a B&B.

The B&B is modern, spacious, fresh, so tidy and clean. The common areas are very comfortable and the ability to access rooms via a front or rear entrance is a benefit as well.

We had a beautiful breakfast with freshly cut mixed fresh fruit, yogourt, smoked salmon and eggs, tomatoe, multi-grain bread, coffee, etc.

We would return to this B&B if we visited Summerside again.

Being our first time in a B&B we really did not know what to expect. We were totally surprised and the bar has been set extremely high.

Upon arrival we were met by one of our hosts, Sean, who provided us with our keys and explained how the B&B experience worked. He asked us about our breakfast preferences including timing and what was planned for the morning. He then showed us to our room and we unpacked. We were there for a total of 3 nights from Aug 5-7 and left after breakfast on the 8th.

We were extremely happy with the accommodations. The B&B was recently opened and is bright and decorated with new furniture and we were told that there was some sound proofing as well. The bed is very comfortable but a bit high to climb into. The rooms do not have A/C and with the ceiling fan and the low night temperatures it is not required. The floors are laminate and there are different room configurations ranging from a whirlpool bath to just a shower stall but very nicely done and all have a hair dryers, small coffee makers and clock/radios. There is also a TV lounge w/ a selection of DVD’s that you can watch there or take back to your room for viewing (see the photos on their web site and they are as the photos depict) as well as a small bar fridge to get free bottled water or store you beer in. As with a hotel, shampoo and body wash was provided as well as clean towels each day.

We met our other host, Liz, the next morning. Each day we were served a bowl of fresh cut fruit containing strawberries, blueberries, peaches and red and green grapes and a 4 flavour yogurt selection along with a pot of coffee. The main dishes for the 3 days were scrambled eggs with smoked salmon; ham and cheese filled crêpes; and English style cooked breakfast consisting of fresh tomato, sausage; English bacon; eggs cooked to order. All meals came with toast and jams. Each meal was followed by fresh croissants or scones. It could not have been better to start your long day of seeing the sights.

The B&B has a paved parking spot for each guest and is located 5 minutes from Spinnakers Landing and the Summerside Mall nearly in the heart of Summerside. The grounds are tasteful and have a gazebo and a small covered deck that you can sit out on to enjoy the cool evening air.

At first glance, the $115/night seemed a little steep for a B&B but when you consider the location, time of year, room condition and amenities and especially the fantastic food it was a bargain. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This is our first trip to the Maritimes. We decided to stay at BB's along the way. We were very impressed with Driftwood Heights from the first moment we stepped through the front entrance - brand new modern decor and friendly hosts. Our bedroom with its own bathroom ensuite was very clean, comfortable and attention to detail. The gourmet breakfast was awesome. We would not hesitate to return and highly recommend this place to others.

We recently stayed at this brand new B&B with our 2 year old son. Sean and Liz were very friendly and welcoming hosts and their B&B is immaculate. The rooms are well furnished and the entire house is modern and brand new. All the rooms had new flat screen TV's and the common areas were spacious and comfortable. The breakfast they prepared was impressive and we certainly did not leave hungry! We highly recommend the Driftwood Heights B&B. They have unfortunately set a very high standard for us for B&B's which will not easily be met.
