“Nice Quaint Motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

I had a nice experience at this motel. The room was very nice, spacious and extremely clean. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room and a small fridge, which was handy to store water.

There were others staying at the motel, yet I could not hear them. Very nice to have the quiet. Also, there is a lovely view just across the road from the motel.

If I were to have a criticism, it would be that breakfast is not included and the restaurant doesn't open until 10am. This isn't ideal because there is no place yo eat that is in walking distance. There are many B&B's in the area, which include breakfast. I didn't realize that breakfast was not included.

We have recently stayed at the the Red Cap Motel, it was excellent to say the least, this is a lovely family run Motel and Restaurant, the rooms were standard but extremely clean and updated, they had a wonderful A/C unit and the bathrooms were very beyond clean. The floors are laminate which is a nice change for people with allergies. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. The Restaurant was also fantastic, the food was delicious. They have their own red seal chef and I can't say enough about it. I would highly recommend this if you are staying in or around West Pubnico

Our supper at the restaurant was extremely tasty and perfectly prepared. My husband said the Creme Carmel was best he ever had!!
Our room was comfortable and appeared to be freshly renovated. It happened to be their wheel chair accessible room with a roomy shower!!
We will be back !

We stayed in Pubnico for two nights at the lovely Yesteryear B & B. We had two wonderful dinners at the Red Cap Restaurant, the best food we ate in a month. We could hardly believe the
quality of our dinners in this relatively rural area. Wish we could go back tonight! The
restaurant closes early, around 7 pm, so don't miss it.

The rooms were basic but very clean. I had a quiet and restful sleep.There are not many places to eat in West Pubnico, but the Red Cap Motel turned out to have a nice restaurant with tasty food. I would recommend the Red Cap for reasonably priced rooms and good food.

We loved this little restaurant,. We were on our way up the 103 when we needed to stop to feed our little girl. We saw the restaurant advertised in the Taste of Nova Scotia 2012 culinary adventure guide. We didn't stay at the hotel but the restaurant is well worth getting off the highway!

The Chef here is a young lady named Amy Scott, and her food is on par with any fine dining restaurant, anywhere.
I have been a Chef for almost forty year, and while I do not know who trained this Chef, "they done good" and should be very proud.
Wonderfully presented and perfectly seasoned, and do not leave without trying a dessert. The read pudding with a citrus infused simple syrup is something worth the trip.
My only concern is the early closing times, but this Chef is bound for big things, she is that darn good!!!
