On a scale of 1-10, Harbourview Inn is an "11". Hospitality is off the charts, breakfast is amazing, and the rooms are awesome. You cannot do any better. Stay there if you are anywhere around Digby. You will love it!

I have stayed at this delightful inn on several occasions. The hosts are wonderful people, very accommodating and friendly. Great area for walking in or hiking on the beach. Morning breakfast is great with a variety of choices for everyone's diet/concerns. The beds are extremely comfortable, the rooms very cozy. Love, Love, Love this place. You will not be disappointed.

A beautiful old house with an interesting history presided over by Darren, a truly welcoming host. The house and pretty gardens were in a very peaceful location. A very pretty room, clean and comfortable, with an easy walk down to the beach to photograph the sunrise, followed by an excellent breakfast. The "Bar" was an unexpected extra enabling us to...

Darren welcomed us at reception and we were given the keys to Room 2 which was at the front of the property on the ground floor. The room was a very good size with everything you needed. The beach was easily reached on foot but it was foggy and damp when we stayed here. We have stayed here on our...

What a find...a lovely hotel. Warm and genuine welcome from Darren, room was perfect and breakfast was a joy. Just a stroll from the beach and only a few miles from Annapolis Royal (which is a charming town). Two nights was not enough here. Should you go there, say hello to Rosie-my favourite gorgeous dog!

Very nice place: Interesting lobby, nice breakfast room, and bedrooms were a good size. The breakfast was just right for us. The Inn is outside of Digby and while it's close (4 or 5 minutes by car), it's not a walkable distance because of the way the highway cuts around the bay. Nevertheless we thought this was an excellent place...
