Breakfast was ok, A typical buffet style, not much to choose from, and the hashbrowns were those tiny frozen ones that were cooked to death u had to eat them with a spoon, waitress was very nice, But food not worth the 15.50 each.

$48 after tax and tips for two people for the breakfast buffet, juice and milk. The eggs had no flavor. There was no real maple syrup for the pancakes. The scones were dry and floury. A very nice view.

The rooms were clean and the motel was convenient to the Cabot Trail. We missed brunch on Sunday but it appeared to be very well attended. The restaurant was closed the night we stayed there but the friendly staff guided us to a nearby restaurant.
