We were only there for one night but found it clean and comfortable. The breakfast room was lovely and food is a little dated but cleanliness is a big thing for us. We would stay there again for sure.

Duck Cove Inn has on old time charm, from the very first greeting, to entering our room. What a charming surprise. Very clean, comfortable, and the Sunday brunch was amazing!! Wish there had been vacancy, we would have stayed an extra night. If I', in West side of CapeBreton again, I will try to book here. For sure

Kim, ca1 night trip
Fair 4.0
Old noisy mattresses. Very thin walls. Would like to see pump hand soap during covid not bars. Very poor wifi. No point in advertising free if you can’t get on. Seemed overpriced for a motel in this condition. Breakfast Buffet during a pandemic seemed rather odd?
