Stay here to be treated like royalty!
I booked the Harbourview Inn in Smith's Cove mainly because it was a last minute trip to Digby and all the accommodation there were already booked ! And was I so glad I found the Harbourview Inn! The 2 bedrooms on the second floor that we were assigned to were immaculate , cozy and have the cutest bed covers and bed sheet sets. The water pressure from the shower was great and the bath towels were thick , unlike most 3-4 star hotels which provide small, thin towels. And, what a beautiful lobby and breakfast area they have! One of the finest breakfast spots I have ever been - sipping coffee while watching birds and chipmunks feed on the bird feeders in the garden. All in all , a very memorable stay!

Not what we expected/booked
Booked a suite with two queen and learned that there is no suite that is in line with the booking confirmation we received. The room we’ve got had a lot of space, but the house at the street and very transparent what happens in the other rooms. From no part of house we had the suite in, was water- or Harbourview. Staff was helpful. Breakfast ok.
