"Marilyn and I have been guests at Basinview for a number of years including July 2009. Of the many years we've been visiting Nova Scotia we
feel we struck gold when we first found Basinview and met Martin and Phyllis. We have been made to feel like family by their warm hospitality, an experience we would recommend to any and all visitors to their lovely part of the world. Many, many thanks to Phyllis and Martin for making our
stays so pleasant over these many sojourns to Nova Scotia. We are made to feel so welcome from the moment we enter your driveway for the duration of our stay." - Bill & Marilyn Simpson

"My wife and I and a family of 3 from Germany recently stayed at the Basinview Motel for one night. We were all very impressed with the service and the cleanliness of the motel. The owner and his wife were very helpful in filling out our registration and bringing in extra blankets for the daughter of our friends. I would highly recommend this motel for anyone staying in the area. Friendly, spotlessly clean, nicely appointed and outstanding service. What more could a traveler wish for? Thank you."
-Steve Hamilton

The drawing pictured above is an example of some of the gifts Basinview Motel receives in appreciation for their hospitality.

"We thoroughly enjoyed both our stays at the Basinview Motel during the summer of 2009. We found the location ideal for exploring the region and it was very close to HMCS Acadia in Cornwallis, where our son was attending Band Camp. Whether you want to take a spin along Digby Neck or the Evangeline Trail, or visit nearby historic Annapolis Royal and Port Royal, Basinview is a great home base. Of course, it is also close to Digby and the world famous Digby scallops. Phyllis and Martin are excellent hosts and they have an extensive knowledge of the region. They also are very friendly and make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and spotless and very comfortable for your stay away from home. Lastly, the view of the Digby Basin is beautiful! We strongly recommend the Basinview to anyone visiting this beautiful region in Nova Scotia. And a quick note to parents of Cadets attending HMCS Acadia: This is the place to stay and is only a couple of minutes away from the camp!" - Ed & Pat
