The resort is just a short drive from the Bay of Fundy Ferry. The short drive thru the entrance gate and up a hill presents beautiful buildings and a welcome reception to a wonderful hotel resort. Our room had a great view over the Bay and was small, but comfortable. A walk through the lobby and the downstairs restaurant was a walk through history. We enjoyed our stay and would gladly return.

We arrived on a Thursday afternoon without a reservation after an overnight at a very popular hotel on the South Shore. A bit disappointed with that visit, we were hoping for a good stay. This gem did not disappoint. Traveling with our son in a wheelchair, they bent over backwards to accommodate us in a wheelchair access cottage. Still a bit chilly, the fireplace was set up and ready to go. The grounds are gorgeous, the one of a kind pool was heated, and you can't leave without spending time sitting in the veranda area in the main lodge overlooking the grounds, wharf and bay. Many thanks to the awesome front desk staff especially Brittany Morton for going above and beyond to check out room layouts and help us find the best fit for our family. She is a great asset to Digby Pines, and we look forward to our return next year. Stop, relax, enjoy the breathtaking vista and the crisp, delicious air!

The room had a great view of the town of Digby and the harbor where one could watch the scallops boats leave and return. The hotel was completed in the late 1920's which added its own charm. The room itself was small, ordinary but well kept and comfortable.

Delightful locations with breathtaking views and an excellent lunch buffet. Spent a lovely time walking the grounds and admiring the facilities. The pool looked amazing! Great life size chess set on the front lawn.

Had a room overlooking digby harbour. Pity the weather was so bad we could hardly see it. Room on the small side 2 single beds but clean and tidy. Ours was an adjoining room(131) and we could hear everything from the room next door which was rather unpleasant. Breakfast buffet good. We didn't have dinner in the hotel. Outside heated pool looked good but we didn't really have to time to enjoy it

My husband and I recently had lunch at the Dibgy Pines; it was excellent. My lamb burger was perfectly cooked, and came with a freshly baked bun that had just come out of the oven and smelled heavenly all on its own. The yam fries were crisps, hot and delicious, and came with a lovely curry mayonnaise. My husband had a fish cake that was also delicious, fries that rivalled my yam fries for fresh and delicious taste. We had a chocolate mousse orange concoction for dessert - delicious! I had a pot of tea that was piping hot and actually tasted like tea, something that very few restaurants seem to be able to accomplish. Our server, Sheri, had that perfect combination of professionalism, attentiveness and knowledge. If you are in the area and want a reasonably priced lunch in a beautifully appointed dining room, head here; you won't be sorry.

On June 16 a group of us arrived at the Pines for our regular early season golf weekend--now in year 11. We had booked for two days (and three rounds of golf), but because of extremely heavy rain throughout Saturday, decided to head home early to Halifax. We asked the front desk staff if we could cancel the reservation for the second night without penalty, and were pleasantly surprised to be told that, although contractually we were bound for the 2-night stay, the Pines would indeed allow us to cancel, given the terrible weather. A classy act! The day before, when we did play a round of golf, we were told that the tee-time which we had been sent by the Reservations Office at the Pines didn't match the time which the pro shop at the course had for our group. Nevertheless they did manage to squeeze us in and, to express regret for their error, provided us with a drink ticket each. Another example of smart, proactive service... The Saturday brunch was excellent, and the cottages where our group stayed, comfortable and well-maintained. We will be back in the fall for another weekend of golf (on the terrific Stanley Thompson-designed course). What keeps us coming back is a blend of excellent rates, a great course, and terrific service,

We recently dined at the Digby Pines for their Sunday brunch The food was wonderful! Lots of choices too! The dining room is always a pleasure with amazing views Our server Lisette was awesome too ! We will be back for sure! I highly recommend the Digby Pines for Sunday brunch.....but check first, as it's not every Sunday.

We stayed at the Digby for a couple of nights. The location is beautiful with a nice 20 minute walk around the property if you want some exercise. The staff was amazing, especially front desk and Lisette in the restaurant. Supper was wonderful, especially the halibut dish. The downside is that the walls are paper thin and we could follow the conversation in the next room. The bed was also a bit wonky and crooked but for an older hotel, it has charm and is reasonably priced.

I was last here in 2011 and had a very good visit, and things have only improved. The staff were extremely friendly, especially everyone in the restaurant. I went for an afternoon swim and an evening swim under the stars. Rooms now have wifi, and although the bathroom is a bit small it's more than adequate and the water is hot with lots of pressure. The bed was great and the room quiet. I'm not sure how much there is to do if the weather is lousy - I didn't notice a games room - but good weather or bad it's a wonderful place to relax. The dining room menu is extensive and the food delicious. There are some great day trips if this is your home base for a few days and not golfing, including Digby Neck for whale watching, or farther west to explore some Acadian culture.
