“OK, old style but clean and quiet with a nice view”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

OK, a little bit old style furniture but friendly owners, clean rooms. Good WiFi strength in the room. Nice view over the water behind the motel. Good breakfast with scrambled eggs and bacon, white or brown toast, apple or orange juice with tea or coffee. There is a washing machine available so you can wash your clothes but only available until the reception closes. The room was cold upon arrival (below 10 degrees) because they weren't expecting any more guests. Heater works fine but takes a very long time to warm up. Plenty of blankets so warm enough during the night.

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

The Balmoral Motel offers a very convenient and comfortable place to stay in Tatamagouche. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely view out the back. I really appreciated the fact that there was no carpeting :) The staff are friendly and courteous and take great pride in their business.
As notes for travelers, there is no air conditioning, mini-fridge or microwave or even a small coffee maker in the room so a prolonged stay might prove a tad more inconvenient. That being noted, the motel offers free laundry room usage, free long distance to anywhere in North America, a newspaper at your door in the morning and a hot breakfast (which, while appreciated, offers no alternative options for those with specific dietary needs or restrictions.- bacon, eggs, toast are fine for most but for vegans or people with cholesterol reducing diets, this may be a concern). There are numerous small restaurants in the community as well as a Robin`s Donuts up the road and a Foodland grocery store across the street so the location is convenient and there are ample amenities to make a short term stay both reasonable and pleasant.

Room Tip: There is a small breeze-way between rooms 10 and 11 so, for the traveler looking for a bit more quie...

The people who run this motel are very accommodating and the breakfast is great. We did, however, find the rooms to be very basic and there was no air conditioning, which didn't help us sleep well. There is a small tv and no fridge in the room. There is plentiful supplies of ice and laundry onsite, Not a bad place to stay if you have the right expectations.

We spent a night here during the long weekend because of the easy access to different beaches in the surrounding areas. I was so pleasantly surprised when we walked in our room. It was fresh, clean and nicely decorated. The floor was beautiful and the beds were comfy and clean. The room was a good size and it even had a view of the water behind it. The bathroom was suffiecient and again, very clean. The neatest thing was that you could call anywhere in North America for no charge! I called a few family mambers in the States to say hi and just because I could! We got a free newspaper at our door and the breakfast the next morning was ok. The sit down FREE breakfast was ok, there is no choice, just a plate of 2 sausage, scrambled eggs and frozen homefries. No toast or english muffins or fruit. But whatever right? It was free.
This hotel is good value. It's across the street from the grocery store, liquor store and food bus. Close enough to walk to attractions in Tata.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
TIP: Really needs a mini fridge but we were provided with buckets of ice in the lobby by just asking.

This motel was reasonably priced with clean rooms and nice bathrooms. The owners (the Dyers) were very nice and helpful. The price includes a hot breakfast in a dining room with windows overlooking an open field and we were treated to hummingbirds on the feeder right outside our window. Access to a free washer and dryer and free long distance to anywhere in North America made this a great find!
