Stayed two nights on the recommendation of friends. From my conversation with Joanne on the phone, and then Albert when I had to call to rebook for another weekend, I knew we would be meeting the friendliest folks. Everyone that worked there was very friendly. Room was cozy, beds were comfy, private deck was big with a great view. Plenty of coffee in the room. I drink my coffee black with no sugar but Joanne also provided sugar. Those chain places give you a few k cups but no shortage of coffee here. Easy beach access. When the tide is out, a person could walk across to the campground on the other side. BBQs on site with tools, tables and lighters at the ready. Fire pit. We could park close to the room, which was nice. Joanne made sure no one went hungry at breakfast. When I told her my older son was back at the room with our little dog, she wrapped up a big plate of fruit to take back to him, along with one of her delicious homemade muffins. It's nice sitting at the main house chatting with the other guests. We are very pleased to have stayed at Hedley House By the Sea. Hope to see you again in the future.

I called them to let them know that I was coming but extremely late. They told me not to worry. They told me they will leave key in room so I can get in when I arrived. They gave us a double room for same price to be more comfortable,we were 4 people. Owner extremely charming. Staff extremely friendly. Room very extremely clean and the view was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was good. Owner even signed for us during breakfast.. Amazing We definitely come back.

Joanne was amazing with singing her Nova Scotia songs for us at breakfast The rooms are out of date and could use some tender loving care, but overall each room had a balcony with a wonderful view of the bay. Excellent place to stay while visiting Digby, very close for the ferry to Saint John and close to the Digby point road to go to Brier Island for whale watching

We spent one night at Hedley House after taking the ferry from St John to Digby The hotel is very close to Digby We were given rooms 14 and 15 which are adjoining so our teenage children stayed next door. The room was well equipped and included a private deck with a water view. The hotel is small and older, but somehow that just adds to it’s charm. Continental breakfast was included at the main house. The innkeepers used breakfast time to visit with each of the guests and played for us. It felt like a kitchen party. Thank you Joanne and Albert. Hedley House is the best spot in the area
