Digby Pines Golf Resort & Spa, an Ascend Hotel Collection

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This resort was unique in our experience. Sprawling, beautifully landscaped with trees, shrubs, flowers everywhere. In the 1930's it was a luxury hotel built to go with a stop on the rail line. The property was beautiful to stroll around in. the room was clean and comfortable. The food served at dinner and breakfast was delicious and hearty. Overall, a very enjoyable experience.

The Digby Pines is a classic hotel and golf club. The rooms are rustic and the restaurants classic. They have a cute gift shop as well. The staff is top notch. I would suggest a trip to tour the area. Digby mussels are a must as well as fresh lobster.

Thank you Digby Pines for a thoroughly enjoyable stay and for your extraordinary hospitality! Rarely do you find a hotel in this price range that will go out of their way to make you feel as welcomed and well-cared for as Digby Pines did for my friend and me. We were arriving much later than expected on a Sunday evening due to circumstances beyond our control and the restaurant would be closing befoe we arrived. It was my friend's birthday (a landmark birthday to boot) and we were hoping to celebrate it with sparkling wine a lovely dinner at Digby Pines. When we called the front desk/concierge to verify when the restaurant closed and told him of our predicament, he talked to the Chef (Dale Nichols) and they developed a solution for us. After the restaurant closed the Chef, who was there doing paperwork, prepared a meal for us (an amazing dish of seared Digby scallops and rissotto served with a light vegetable sauce) that was delivered to my room along with sparkling wine just before we arrived. We were touched by this gesture and applaud Digby Pines for making my friend's birthday dinner one to remember. As for the room and the rest of the hotel, it was clean, comfortable, and appeared pretty well maintained for an historic hotel. The breakfast buffet and options were good and once again, the concierge and front desk service...stellar. I hope to return to Digby Pines next year with my husband and spend more time enjoying the grounds, the spa, and their outstanding hospitality.

We stayed as two couples in a two bedroom, two bathroom cottage. comfortable accommodations in a quiet and relaxing setting. The meals in the main lodge restaurant were excellent. The grounds have beautiful walking paths through a pine forest. The resort has character and is on the edge of Digby and close to the ferry to New Brunswick.

Upon the recommendation of a friend from Nova Scotia, we booked a room at Digby Pines Resort. We were not disappointed. It was a beautiful day in the 60 (F) and we went in the heated pool! The grounds are lovely. Took a brief walk around the grounds and watched the sunset. Had their famous Digby Scallops for dinner. Awesome

My wife and I spent 2 nights at this venerable resort. We were fortunate to have a 2 bedroom and 2 bath cottage with fireplace and an unobstructed Waterview. The cabin was comfortable enough but furniture and decor were seriously dated. A broken blind was not fixed because "it was near the end of the season". An occasional running toilet also made its presence known. The cost for the cottage was very reasonable and an absolute steal in US dollars. Grounds were attractive and the spa/pool area was very nice. The hotel food was nothing exceptional...satisfactory but a bit pricey.Overall a solid 3 star rating.

This Resort has attractive landscaped grounds, is about 15 minutes from the ferry port and about a 10 minute drive into the small town of Digby. The hotel large public rooms are splendid BUT our bedroom was very small and cramped with one chair and no desk. The bathroom is minute and lacking not just in space but had no where to put basic washing/make items. We were only there for two nights but the lack of space was a problem with cases taking up most of the floor space. As this was booked by a tour company I am unaware if the room size was a budget room however all the other hor tells, whether in a historic building or not were much larger .This room was only practical to sleep in rather than to relax in. The breakfast the next morning was complimentary and good. The evening meal had little if any vegetarian options, we ate in the bar area as the restaurant was full. Our male server was not very helpful, obviously irritated by my queries about my food options offering no suggestions. In contrast the young woman in the gift shop (Tiffany) was ulta helpful with suggestions for where we could visit the next day. She even helped me with my camera phone, checking that I had plenty of space for photos. We took her advice and had a fantastic day touring around.

The staff at this resort is their best feature. They were friendly, courteous and helpful. My wife and I stayed in the jacuzzi suite which was comfortable and definitely worth the price. The jacuzzi jets did not all work and they were all closed but fortunately we have one at home and it was simple twist to open each. We found the placement of the mini fridge oddly placed and the bathroom was dated and small but we did like the room. The grounds are well maintained and the walkways, outdoor seating areas and the pool area all make for a nice way to spend the day. The only drawback was that we each had 3 different courses at their Churchill's dinning room and the food was very sub par. Not sure if it was due to their last day open for the season but the food was obviously pre cooked and left to sit and dry out and reheated. Overall we will definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family but we would just eat off site.

Had lunch at the dining room overlooking the grounds and pool. Very good service, and good selection on the menu . Service was quick, and food was fresh.Enjoyed the atmosphere.Many tour buses stop here for lunch

If you have never tried the Sunday brunch at the really are missing an amazing brunch! There is always a huge selection...literally something for everyone. The roast beef is always amazingly tender, the steamed mussels are delicious, the waffles at a the best! And their dessert selection is mouth wateringly good! ( their creme brulee and creme caramel are the absolute BEST) SO year make a point if going to at least ONE of their branch's. I'm sure you won't regret going!
