Stayed here for two nights, motel was average. Surprisingly its quite quite. had two great nights of sleeping, bed is VERY COMFORTABLE. Over all it’s clean, carpet is abit outdated, i would think about changing this. Otherwise its fine and comfortable. I found it a...bit pricey for a motel, I paid more to stay here than what I paid at the Delta in downtown St. John. We come to Wolfville at least once a year, couldn’t get a place in Woldville so this is why we stayed here. Over all its not bad. As for the cafe, its not bad, its a diner. Coffee was average, breakfast was good but, yes there is a but. I have never before seen a “traditional breakfast” which consist of eggs, bacon, ham or sausage, and toast, yes some come with home fries, but thats not the issue. I have NEVER before seen a tradition breakfast with one egg, am I wrong in expecting 2 eggs. Anyway it was an average breakfast nothing spectacular. Our server though was a peach, sorry i didn’t get her name, but we defenjoyed talking to her and she was just full of Maritime pleasantry. Thanks for the great start to our morning. Over all I would stay here again, just a little disappointed with the few things mentioned.More

Stopped for lunch based on TA reviews. We had Haddock with salad special and Egg salad sandwich and pie. Haddock was fishy and looked like it was a frozen fillet, beet salad was tasty but unfortunately had a long hair in it. Egg salad was...ok but inexperienced waitress forgot the pie so ended up cancelling it. She didn't remove it from the bill so had to wait until that was figured out. She wasn't properly trained as she had no idea regarding questions about the menu or the accommodations ie was there a pool.More

After visiting a nearby fabric quilt store, it was recommended we have lunch there. Food was wonderful (fish burger, salad, pies for dessert), service was excellent and friendly, even though it was busy at the end of the lunch rush. Prices quite reasonable. Highly recommended.

We always loved to stop and eat here....food was excellent but today was different. I ordered seafood chowder....it was watery, blah and mostly potatoes , tiny shrimp and scallops and tasteless haddock. There was a bit of lobster on top but again taste. The scone...was very dry. When I went to the washroom it was filthy with paper everywhere...on the floor inside and out. Saw large spot of spilled coffee right by the entrance and mentioned it to staff as being dangerous. In time she took a paper towel and wiped it up. Was never so disgusted ...and will not be returning. Most of staff were sitting in a little room off to the side chatting instead and keeping the place clean...especially during the pandemicMore

I would like to apologize for you not liking our seafood chowder. We have not changed our recipe but I will let the soup cook know about your concerns. The spot of coffee was seen by one of our staff. She cleaned it up these...More

We stopped here for a late lunch and I was surprised at how busy it was. To me that's always a good sign! The service was very good and fast. The tables were spaced out for COVID and I felt very safe eating there. I'm...gluten free and ordered the fish cakes and salad. Salad and dressing were amazing. The fish cakes were more potato than fish. My husband tried them and said the same. He had the pan fried haddock. A nice serving of fries was added instead of salad. It was good, and I would definitely give it another try sometime I'm there in the future. It was nice to know they had a gluten free brownie for desert as well.More

We dined here five years ago on our trip east and loved it. This visit was a big letdown. Service was beyond slow. Waited almost an hour for our food and two of the orders were wrong. Thought it might be a one of, but...on our second go, service was slow and the food was cold. Hardly any pies for desert...just apple. Sad to see this diner losing its vibe. It used to be a highlight of our vacation.More

A great find on our wine tour. Local place, homemade from scratch recipes. Soup and sandwiches were our lunch special. Everyone finished their great meals with a slice of pie. Three couples, four different pies, all amazing. Terrific service and all at amazing low prices.

The motel room was clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the heated indoor pool. I cannot however recommend the cafe. Very limited menu not particularly well prepared and expensive.
