We took an impromptu road trip from Ontario to Nova Scotia. Travelling with no plans we found last minute lodging in a lot of chain hotels. We stumbled upon Hedley House in one of our apps The super friendly greeting we received on the phone when we inquires about 2 nights at the last minute cemented the deal. This place...

Not far from Digby, but we chose it for the quieter location and beach-side setting. it was relaxing to sit on the deck overlooking the beach after a busy day. The room was comfortable and well serviced, but there were some signs of tiredness - though that wouldn't stop us going again. The beakfasts were adequate, and sometimes accompanied by...

I liked my clean room and of course the amazig view from my private deck. For breakfast you can have Toast, cerial, fresh fruit, cheese and lovely homemeade Muffins. The managers adding a personal touch by singing local songs live to you. If you look for shiny new, that's not your place. But I like flair better than some anonymous...

We stayed in several hotels around mainland Nova Scotia and this one was the gem in the pile for us. Nothing fancy but has everything that we needed. The breakfast is limited like most free ones but hey homemade muffins and real cheese on the table is pretty good in my opinion. The best part of all is the view...

We loved the location a walked miles when the tide was down in the bay. The flowers around the buildings are charming but the place needs a lot of TLC. The yard is a overgrown mess, the breakfast is typical cereal, juice, muffins nothing special. We made our own breakfast. Walls are paper thin, you can hear everything in the...

I am so sorry you didn't enjoy yourselves at Hedley House. Well actually you did enjoy our location and our easy access to our beach and nature walks along the shore and beyond at low tide. I disagree that the yard is a mess. We have 4 acres of lawns and they are kept mowed. For most people, the focus...

Clean, comfortable rooms, all with a deck so you can enjoy tidal beach view - plus plenty of beach glass to be found. Shower rather small, no AC so difficult to be comfortable in hottest months. Stay!

The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were very good and the owner sang the guests a song or two each morning. We really enjoyed walking on the private beach. They recommended an excellent restaurant in Digby.

Stayed with 2 other couples and a 2 year old for 2 days. Laid-back, pleasant. Each room with a balcony on the water, good place to experience the Fundy tides at your leisure. Some rooms with rudimentary kitchen facilities, which we used 1 night. Quirky describes the whole property, with continental breakfast, with the hosts providing singing , guitar and...
