Client Feedback

Always great stay

The location is perfect for your stay in the truro. The entrance and exit are on a good street that has reasonable traffic . I believe thus is actually my third stay there the last couple years. 

Tidal bore inn is a very clean , simple room it had a microwave, fridge and portable air conditioner. The inn is older but well maintained. The price was a great value and I would stay there again.

 Bill and Lisa were very nice during my lovely stay. They were giving me some good suggestive travel tips, and the location is only mins drive away from the tidal bore observation site. Good value.

Nice place, Amazing View
The first thing I noticed were the colorful chairs lined up on the top of the hill overlooking the bay and the city. The room was comfortable and clean. A very nice place to stay.

Comfortable and pet friendly.
